Black kelpie dog

Pet of the week

This beautiful black kelpie is an energetic boy who loves to have a play and run around. He is friendly towards other dogs and enjoys a good pat. He has some obedience but will thrive on having some training and structure from his owner. He would be best suited to a home with a big backyard and an owner who can give him regular exercise. He is around 1-2 years old and hasn’t been de-sexed or microchipped

To rehome this lovely boy, read the Impounded Animals page on Council’s website at www.kempsey.nsw.gov.au/pound then contact Council Customer Services on 6566 3200
