12 Dogs of Christmas: Give a furry friend a forever home this festive season

Christmas is a time of love and family, so why not spread the goodness that little bit further and welcome a new member into the family fold?

You would be hard pressed to find a breed of dog with more brains than a Kelpie.

Four-year-old Banjo is no exception to the rule.

A gentleman, with lots of potential, Kira Booth from the Wingecarribe Animal Shelter said he is responding well to training.

“He is responding well to his training at the shelter, and most of all, he is enjoying it,” Ms Booth said.

Being a working dog, Banjo would require daily exercise to keep him fit,healthy and stimulated as well as good fencing to keep him safe.

He has a strong recall and walks well on a lead.. 

If you are interested in meeting Banjo contact the Wingecarribee Animal Shelter (located at 177 Berrima Road, Moss Vale) on 02 4868 1520. 

But remember, if you are considering buying an animal as a Christmas present, have long hard think. 

Every day there will be another addition to the 12 Dogs of Christmas.
