Cruz requires an experienced, dog oriented home who will be able to meet his needs. Only appropriate homes to keep him safe (super secure fencing) and provide appropriate training and exercise will be considered.

Adult Ibizan hound (1)

Cruz is an Ibizan Hound, a very rare breed in Australia. Ibizans (or Beezers as they are affectionately known) are loving, friendly, playful and people oriented dogs, who also get along well with other dogs. They need inclusion in the family along with another playful dog to burn off some of their energy to keep them happy and ensure that they don’t become bored and potentially destructive or noisy. The Ibizan is very athletic and can jump 6ft from a stand still and is an adept climber.

Cruz play (1)

Beezers are great at problem solving – so kitchen benches and even on top of the refrigerator are easy targets. They need to have their brain and body exercised DAILY to keep them happy (as well as a very secure yard of a minimum of 6ft). Beezers have a high prey drive and are therefore not suited to homes with small animals. They are also not a dog that you can let off-leash unless you are in a very secure fenced area. As the Beezer matures (mentally occurs much later than physically), it will need a good run every day but also will be content to have periods of chilling out. An affectionate and fun dog, the Beezer can be a rewarding member of the family however they are not a dog for everyone due to their high management needs. Apparently around the world they are used in dog high jumping, obedience, agility, lure coursing, hunting, etc.

Cruz2 (1)

Cruz is new into care but at 5 weeks is already showing amazing problem solving abilities. He worked out how to get around the house on his first adventure, he even knew that to get into the puppy pen for something, he would need to go to the far end of the puppy pen and go through the crate to get inside – he did this without any effort at all.

Cruz and Katie play (1)

Cruz is enjoying interacting and playing with the other dogs in the household as well as his littermate, Mika. Cruz is a sweet little fellow and is only just coming into his own and is ready to start life with an inclusive and active family that can meet his needs.

Cruz and Mika1-1 (1)

Mika is a dear affectionate little fellow who is a little shier than his confident and problem solving brother, Cruz. Mika loves a snuggle but then he also loves a game and exploring with the others. His confidence is building quickly and he too has shown ability to easily work out how to get around, though he tends to follow what the others are doing rather than heading off on his own for an adventure.

Thank you for considering an ARF dog. Most dogs receive several enquiries, and we aim to match the right dog to the right home so that they can enjoy a happy life together. If your enquiry is unsuccessful, rest assured that the foster carer has carefully based their decision on a thorough knowledge and understanding of the dog’s needs.

Zee has found herself a new home and will be off out shortly to show them the ropes.

Helping Cardi with Neighbourhood Watch duties

Zee is a cuddly young lady who was surrendered to us after being given away on Gumtree. She was a little unwell at the time and has spent some time building up her health and is now doing well and putting on weight.

Zee LOVES food which means she is super easy to train, she is also very keen to please!

Zee has been living in a foster home with up to five other dogs as well as plenty of visiting dogs and she loves a good game of chasing and ball games in the yard.

Who's the fairest of them all?

Who’s the fairest of them all?

In the doggy social world she shows a confident leadership style, so she would love a home where the male dogs fall at her feet and allow her to make the decisions. She meets other dogs well while out and about, but her play style probably doesn’t lend well to dog park type situations.

Zee is a Richmond supporter.

Zee is a massive cuddler! She loves kids and people of all ages and her favourite thing it to just snuggle into you and watch TV. She has lived with young children and even had a farm stay with cats and did well.

Her short coat will mean she will need to be allowed inside at night and be kept warm on cold Canberra days. She is crate trained, house trained and well behaved in the house…..apart from the occasional zoomie .

My name is Chuckles, and my foster mum thinks I could be the happiest dog in the world. I’m ever so goofy and don’t really know how to use my long legs… yes, I do fall over my own feet at times when I’m super excited.

chucksitside

I love to play and run, and play some more, oh and throw in a swim too. I’m really just a big silly puppy. My foster mum reckons I’d make a great Disney dog.

chucklestq

Although I am the happiest dog in the world, I’m also very very shy and new people scare me lots. It takes me a little bit of time to come round, but I have lots of love to give if you are willing to let me show you. I’m also a bit scared of the big wide world so I’m currently getting out and about a bit to broaden my horizons.

chucksp

I absolutely love to play and spend time with other dogs, and when I’m around them I tend to forget a bit that I’m scared of the world. I did meet a crazy cat the other day and I had to run for my life as I think it wanted to eat me.

chuckhp

I’m looking for a home with another dog as it will help with my confidence and my mum thinks I’ll be lots happier. I also need someone that will continue with my training, I still have lots and lots to learn. I’d love a home where I can be included with the family and I sleep ever so quietly in my crate, oh OK I have a little whinge at first but then I settle down and just go to sleep.

chuckom

If you would like to know more about me, contact my foster mum, she will be happy to tell you all.

Bronze Dogs

Nov 20, 2011

Bronze dogs in this category have sound temperaments but will have some quirks that need ironing out by their new family. Bronze dogs are usually active and require daily training and guidance by their new owner. Bronze dogs may be dogs that have had a difficult start in life as they may have never received any training, been neglected, under socialised or even abused. Bronze dogs can also be some of the most rewarding dogs to adopt.
A Bronze dog may suit you/your family if you:

* have access to and be willing to seek professional training advice if required (such as one on one training)

* have solid 5 foot minimum fences

* can provide daily exercise and daily training for your new dog

* have owned more than one dog before or completed training with previous dogs

* have another dog in your home that has no behaviour problems

* do not have young children in your home
