Brad Pritchett (Bunyip)

Tiffany is a female Red Heeler x whom has been Brad’s companion for 5 years. She came to him as a 2 year old, through Australian Working Dog Rescue, after being on death row at a pound in Mildura. She arrived in poor physical condition and with a very timid nature, but within 12 months she was a completely different dog. Brad told BARN that some good quality canine training, and lots of love and affection, have helped shape her into the most perfect dog ever! Thank you, Brad, for sharing her story, and for taking such a lovely photo, in which she appears to be meditating in the morning sun. Simply beautiful!

On a sad note, our team was recently notified that the handsome male kangaroo, whose photograph was entered in the BARN photo competition, was badly injured in a road accident early this month and was euthanised in situ by the attending police. Please be careful when driving country roads, for your own safety and for that of our precious wildlife. His image appears here, courtesy of the photographer, Denise from Pakenham.
