Ready to retire!

The dogs below are ready to go to their new homes. Due to the Covid lockdowns we have placed dogs online rather than only contacting personally. This allows new owners the ability to apply when they see a dog they like and are able to come and pick her/him up. 

If you have applied for dogs previously please note that we did receive your email or application but if you see a dog here you are interested in please fill in the adoption registration form and then email us on

We will not respond to enquiries who have not filled in the adoption regisration form. 

The current price for rehoming a dog is $1500 incl. GST.

The current price for rehoming a puppy varies and will be in the email should you be a family chosen for a puppy.

Thank you

  1. Hi to you. I have just spoken to Steve from Pines Pets. I have a very sad pugalier x pomeranian who has just lost his best friend due to illness and old age. We are a very pet friendly family who love our pets and look after them well. They are walked twice daily and are given healthy Nature Dog food. I would love to come and look at your retired pets. Of interest are Sorrel, Marci, Mitzy, Monty or Rachel. I know it depends on how they and Frankie, my dog click. I look forward to hearing from you. We are ready to adopt when you are!

  2. Hello Kristin and Matt,

    We first made contact on 7 and 14 December 2015 and still waiting for a little friend for Steffie. She is a little schnauzer, 6 yrs and adopted from a breeder. She has a beautiful temperment, loving and calm, loves interacting with all dogs and has blossomed into a perfect pet. In the past we have always had poodles and ask what breed little Avalon and Avis are and how long before they will be ready for rehoming.
    We are looking for female, 5 – 7 years, non or low shedding and would be happy to consider breeds which
    fit this criteria.
    .We look forward to hearing from you – Sincerely Fay & Millo Voves

  3. Hi,
    I was just wanting some more information about Taylee please. How old is she? How is she with children? What is the cost to adopt her?

  4. I work parttime. I live at Rawson. It is five minutes walk into the bish along bush tracks. I have a large backyard which has been the home to a very large labrador x in the past. Sadly we lost Buddy to an accident when he was 13 years young. I have had experien e with Spaniels in the past.

    • Hi Debbie, if you would like to fill in our adoption form and then go on our mailing list we will send you updates on the dogs which we have available for rehoming 🙂

  6. Hi, Can you tell me about Smuggly? Is he still available? How old is he? Is he Ok with another dog? Is he Ok with cats? We have an 11 year old Groodle [standard x] from Pine Pets plus 3 cats.

      • Thanks for the feedback but we have 3 cats. Please let me know if a suitable dog becomes available.

    • Hi Jacqui, I’m sorry but we do have another person interested in Walida and we are just waiting for them to meet her. If it doesn’t work out for any reason we will let you know!

  7. Hi, just enquiringly whether walida has been adopted yet. She is my spoodles mum and we are looking for a dog for my grandmother who absolutely loves cocker spaniels.

  8. HI there
    Just wondering if Bobbity is still available? We are experienced beagle owners. Both my husband and I grew up with beagles, and we lost our beautiful beagle Ruby (age 9) to sudden heart failure in October last year.

  9. Hi Kirsten. We received an email to say Sharna is now available. We would love to meet her.

  10. Hi my name is Jude & I have a 13-yr-old spoodle which my mum & dad dog sit when we go away on holidays. They don’t like giving her back as she has a beautiful nature & in the past they have always had dogs when we were growing up. Mum has early stage dementia & having a dog really keeps her happy & settled & gives dad a break with the repetitive questioning as she spends her time talking to the dog. When I read about your re-homing of your retired breeder females, I thought this would be wonderful for my folks & wonderful for your retired dog as it would be so loved, plus it would be toilet trained & of a calmer nature compared to getting a puppy. Do you have any spoodle retirees & how much do they cost as being in a pension, the $4000 price is probably a bit out of their reach. Looking forward to hearing from you 😊🐕

    • Hi Judy, sorry but we dont often have the cross bred retirees- but you are welcome to keep an eye on the page and email us if a dog comes up that you are interested in 🙂

  11. Hello Banksia Park Puppies,
    I have been sitting here with a goofy smile on my face looking through your website at pics of your darlings. Beautiful babies. I live semi-rural on half an acre of land with my two beautiful sons (13 & 18) and the love of our life – Koko, the 3 year old female, desexed Labradoodle.
    We are looking for another bundle of joy to join our household in the next few months and having just devoured all of the information on your website, I am very keen to investigate the possibility of our new addition coming from Banksia Park. Wondering what you may have available puppy wise coming up around October? We are looking for a female labradoodle/oodle, standard size, chocolate sable or latte colours are preferable. I would also be interested in looking at a retired adult dog who has finished their working career and are now ready to be loved and adored throughout their retirement!!!! I really look forward to hearing from you. Koko was a puppy from the Bellarine Peninsula. She is so loved and loving. The best thing we ever did. Cheers, Kath Armstrong

  12. Hi, I see that Koko has been reserved if by any chance this falls through we would love to meet her.
