Kian

Mar 6, 2017

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.

Kian has found himself a new home and will be moving out at the end of the month.

Main-1 (1)

Kian is the sweetest, gentlest of souls, who has buckets of love to give.

PIC 1-1 (1)

He loves to lean against you for pats, or to rest his chin in your hand for affection, and close his eyes in pure bliss.

PIC 2-1 (1)

His calm and soft nature makes him an easy housemate. And while he is very loving, he is comfortable in his own skin, and will happily settle on his bed or in his crate, or potter around the garden when his humans busy.

PIC 3-1 (1)

This gorgeous man hasn’t put a foot wrong since arriving into care.

He follows the house rules, always tries his hardest to do what’s expected of him, and has beautiful manners with both people (including the smaller variety) and the resident dogs.

PIC 4-1 (1)

He is very respectful of his grumpy foster brother, while also enjoying lots of play with his small foster sister, giving her the size advantage by lying on his back while she climbs all over him (see him play bitey face at: https://vimeo.com/207982455).

PIC 5-1 (1)

Kian is toilet trained, sleeps well at night, travels well in the car, and doesn’t jump on people.

Although Kian has very little training, he is learning new things super fast, including sit, drop, target touch, door manners, and lead walking (though he pulls quite hard still). This training is helping build his confidence, as he does startle at loud and sudden noises, and worries about some of the stranger human activities, such as sweeping.

PIC 6-1 (1)

Kian would love a family who are not too boisterous (he does love kids though), but have plenty of love and cuddles to give, and who are happy to continue his training to help build his confidence further.

He would prefer to move in with a playful dog sibling, or to be given the chance to socialise with other dogs often. But he would be fine as an only dog, provided he is not left alone for long hours.

PIC 7-1 (1)

Although he has made no attempt to leave this house, Kian will need six-foot (1.8 metre) Colorbond fence to keep him safe, as he is able to scramble over 5-foot chain wire.

If you like big dogs you will LOVE Hazel. She is an absolutely gorgeous big girl. She was in the pound for 54 days because they loved her so much. Hazel gets on well with other dogs and is also good with our cats. She is good with our cattle and horses and with our chooks while they are in their run. I would not trust her with free range chooks though.

Hazel is good to bath, good on lead (although can be a little strong at times), great in the car. She is good inside and is house trained and crate trained. Hazel has a lovely, calm and gentle manner. She loves cuddles and loves playing with toys.

Hazel likes to communicate with her people and will talk to you if she wants a toy or to go outside. She will look at you and ‘woo woo’ talk/bark. She almost has us trained for her needs.

Unfortunately Hazel has partial tears in her cruciate ligaments and is under veterinary care (cartrophen). She will need a home who will be prepared to continue to care for her legs as required.

Hazel would love a family who will include her in their daily activities. She likes to be where her people are so would prefer a home where she would be allowed inside. Hazel will suit many different family situations. I don’t normally take dogs as large as Hazel however she has fitted into our family very easily and is very easy to have around.

Who? me? No way, i didn't touch the milk.
