Kip is a sweet little guy, he’s about a year to eighteen months old. He’s a heading dog x, about the size of a smallish Border Collie.

He’s very submissive and gentle and really loves to be close to his people, he’s the sort of dog who will be right there with you all the time. He is very people focused and loves cuddles and attention, his fav thing is tummy rubs and he wriggles around in absolute bliss.

He’s good with other dogs and plays very nicely. He is in foster care in a multi-dog home.

Kip is neat and athletic and would make a great agility dog.

He hasn’t met any cats or other animals yet but he’s very trainable so we don’t think he will be difficult to fit into normal family life at all.

Kip has sports skills and can jump so he does need good fencing 1.8m minimum and a totally secure area when left home alone

Kip is located in Auckland

As with all ARAN dogs, Kip must sleep indoors and live inside the house with his family. He must never be kept chained up.

Kip will be de-sexed, has had his first vaccination, is microchipped and registered and is up to date with flea/worm treatments.

There is an adoption donation of $300.00 to help towards these costs.
