Frequently Asked Questions

Who are you?

I am Tegan Whalan. I am a registered, ethical breeder of border terriers, who also occassionally takes on dogs in need of care.

Do your dogs come desexed, vaccinated, or microchipped?

Yes, all dogs that I rescue are adopted out with all this vet work done.

Can I surrender my dog to you?

We can occassionally take on surrendered dogs on a case-by-case basis. Please get in touch so we can establish you and your dogs' needs. Please note that, in most cases, dogs that are undesexed require a surrender fee of $100 to help cover our expenses.

Where do your dogs come from?

Generally, the dogs we take into care are surrendered to us. Occasionally, we take on dogs from pounds in SA and interstate. We also work with other rescues, so sometimes take on dogs they have acquired by other means.

What is the adoption fee?

The adoption fee for a dog is based upon their costs. Typically, our dogs sell for $150-$400, but they can be more or can be less, depending on that dog's individual situation.

How do I adopt a dog?

Please contact Tegan on 0421 506 482 or email if there is a dog you are interested in adopting.
