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.

Atticus is assessed as being in the Silver category in our Perfect Match system and is desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, wormed and available for $350 (incl GST).

Atticus 4

Atticus is a big softie looking for someone to devote himself to, and with his big brown eyes and beautiful soft ears you’ll probably go along with it! He enjoys anything that involves being with his person, or anything with food, a combination which makes him fantastic to train as he wants nothing more than to work out what you want him to do to get his treat!

Atticus 3

He has learnt sit, drop and wait since being in care and is keen for more! He is very responsive on the lead, walking well on a harness, and tends not to use his strength against you. As he is still young he will benefit from further training and especially opportunities to learn that new people are good.

Atticus 2

Atticus has shown himself to be quite worried about new things at times, especially meeting men, but if we take it slowly he will come around for treats and pats when he’s ready, and once he decides he likes you he will be leaning in for cuddles or trying to sneak into your lap!

We will find out more of what he thinks of the world as we have a chance to get out together more. At the moment I think he would be more comfortable in a home without very young children as he doesn’t like to be surprised. He gets on well with other dogs, preferring those that aren’t too pushy.

Atticus 1

Atticus so far has shown himself to be a happy traveller in the car, and he sleeps quietly through the night in his crate. He has been good in the yard on his own with a tasty bone and a comfy bed, though of course prefers the comforts of the house. He is housetrained and has figured out how the doggy door works, taking himself outside when he needs to. Atticus is ready for action when it’s on offer, but also just loves hanging out peacefully the rest of the time.

If he sounds like the dog you’ve been waiting for, please send me an email telling me what you’re looking for in a dog and about the life you can offer Atticus.

Making myself at (foster) home

Making myself at (foster) home

Zeus is a very special boy and requires a caring and special home. When Zeus arrived in ARF as a 4 months old puppy he had had no socialisation with anything, he had apparently been living in small courtyard with his mother and sibling. He was completely terrified of people. While in care Zeus has thrived and is a very happy boy who is very social. He now loves nothing better than a cuddle with his humans.

Zeus has some basic training, he walks on lead, sits, drops and waits for his food. He is both crate trained and house trained. He also travels well in the car.

Zeus lives with dogs both small and large and gets on with all of them. He does prefer a more gentle doggy companion. Zeus is also good with cats, chooks and horses.

Zeus requires a fairly specific home. His family must be experienced with dogs and have an understanding of training and dog body language. He will need to undertake ongoing training. Zeus must have another doggy companion who is confident and gentle and preferably female.

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.

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.

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.

chuck877

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.

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.
