Shadow and Her Pups: Expression of Interest Form

If you would like to submit an Expression of Interest for Shadow or one of her pups, please complete the form below.

Applications will be assessed in the order they are received.


Shadow will be available for adoption from 28 May (after she is desexed).

Shadow is still a pup herself. Although she is very clever, she will require an owner who is committed to her training.

She is best suited to a home with another dog for company. 

She is microchipped, up-to-date with worming, vaccinations and is flea-free.

Shadow’s adoption fee is $550.

Shadow’s Pups

Red Dot will assess applications for pups and suitable adopters will be contacted by phone for more information. If selected, they will then be invited to meet the pups.

Adopters can select the pup that is the best match for them (or the one that chooses them!). Adopters cannot be assured their first choice of puppy will be available when they come to meet them.

The pups must remain with Red Dot until 18 May (when they are 8 weeks old).

The pups are kelpie x cattle dog which means they are active and highly intelligent. They will require lots of stimulation to become great dogs. 

At the time of adoption, the pups will be:

  • microchipped
  • have undergone a worming program (three times) for internal parasites
  • have their first vaccination; and 
  • be flea-free.

After adoption, the pups:

  • will require two more vaccinations (for the adopter to arrange, and at their expense);
  • must be kept away from places where unvaccinated dogs could have been, until their third and final vaccination provides protection; and
  • must be desexed.
    The Adoption Contract includes a desexing clause that states the pups must be desexed between 5 – 6 months of age.
    Adopters must arrange to have the pup desexed at a vet of their choice.
    When the Desexing Certificate is sighted, Red Dot will:
    – refund the adopter an amount from the Adoption Fee ($220 for females and $180 for males); and
    – submit the Change of Ownership form to transfer the pup into the adopter’s name.
    This is our way of ensuring desexing is done, because preventing unnecessary breeding is one of Red Dot’s priorities.

Two puppies will not be rehomed to the same home (there is strong evidence this is not in the best interests of the pups).

Red Dot reserves the right to choose or reject adopters at their discretion.

The adoption fee for one of Shadow’s pups is $750.
