ARK animal of the week


Southern Downs ARK has a number of dogs and cats up for adoption.

This week we’re highlighting KODA.

Age: 5 months

Adoption fee: $950


If you are looking for a sweet-natured, affectionate and absolutely gorgeous Blue Cattle Dog x Border Collie puppy, Miss Koda could be the girl for you.

She was born in December 2021.

Koda loves humans, especially children, and is very dog-friendly.

She recently had her first exposure to cats and was curious, but otherwise unconcerned.

Being just a youngster, we’re confident she’d easily adapt to life with a feline.

A highly intelligent and trainable pup, Koda already knows how to sit and stay and is getting the hang of walking on a lead.

Despite initial reservations, she’s also learnt that riding in the car is a super fun thing to do.

To increase socialisation opportunities, Koda’s foster mum has been taking her to work where everyone has fallen in love with her.

Apparently, her regular appearances at work have boosted morale.

Koda will do best in an active home where she has plenty of daily exercise and mental stimulation and where she is regarded as an integral part of the family.

She is very much an inside-outside dog and is not suited to full-time workers.

Secure fencing is a must.

Preference will be given to homes where someone is around most of the time and there is another compatible dog for Koda to play with.

Prior experience with the working dog breeds will be highly regarded.

If you are interested in meeting Koda, please complete the online adoption adaptation at and one of our volunteers will be in touch.

Her adoption fee is $950 and she is desexed, vaccinated and microchipped.

Koda is available for interstate adoption.
