Oakey is the sweetest little lady who wins the award for Canberra’s best snuggler. She doesn’t mind if that snuggling happens with a friend with four legs or two, in fact she’d be happy with any number.

Oakey is currently learning all the things that come with being a pup. Her housetraining is coming along nicely, she sleeps beautifully through the night in her crate, and gets along well with all the family dogs….and at one point recently there were seven!

She is keen to please and while her attention span is a bit lacking at the moment, she always likes to do the right thing.

Oakey will be looking for a home where she is a big part of inside family life and of course, will get lots of cuddles!

Birdy is that person we all know as the class clown. She is a hilarious little thing who loves to have fun and play and keep you laughing.

Birds gets on well with everyone she meets and is super confident for her age. She has many four legged friends and has been very happy to meet all her fans down at the local café.

Harlow

Jul 9, 2017


Breed: American Staffy mix Size: Medium Age: about 4 years old  
Contact: Brendon, brendossubs@gmail.com

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.

Harlow is assessed as being in the Silver category in our Perfect Match system and will be desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, wormed and available for $350 (incl GST) once she has completed her quarantine and vet work.

harlow3-4

Harlow is a laid back, easy going girl, who is loving life out of the pound. While she doesn’t mind heading outside for a bit of sun or the occasional game of ball, she would much prefer to be inside, snoozing on her mat near her people. She would love to be on the couch with her people, but unfortunately her foster home has some frustrating rules for a dog with so much love to give!

harlow-sitting-side

Harlow has had some basic training and is picking up new training all the time, learning to be polite at doors, wait for her food, drop, and more besides. The girl is a snuffler, there can be no doubt when she is having a sniff around! This means that she is also a bit of a snorer, most often there is not too much noise, but she can get into a certain position that sounds like the entire forest is being cut down! Nothing that can’t be fixed by waking her up and getting her to move. She is house trained and sleeps solidly through the night. Harlow is *not* a morning dog and loves a good sleep in!

Sleeping Beauty

Harlow meets and gets on well with other dogs, but is known to have issues when there is food around. She is a rather polite eater who loves her tucker, and she is not too pleased with any other dog who might be sniffing around her plate, as such we feel that she is best as an only dog (or in a home committed to ensuring dogs are always fed in separate locations to avoid conflicts). If she is included in the life of her people throughout the day Harlow will be perfectly happy as an only dog.

harlowstanding-looking-up

Harlow is a gentle, relaxed girl and is calm and happy around children, her play is very gentle and doesn’t last too long before she comes back for a pat, or more sleep. She is keen to get out for a walk, but alas no going out of the yard for the first two weeks is another horrible truth for a foster dog. Reports from her time at the pound say she is quite good on the lead and will be confirmed once her quarantine is over.

Harlowout - 1

Harlow is a bit too stocky to jump, but has been known to climb cyclone mesh fences and needs a yard with good fences. That said, if she has good company for all or at least a good part of the day, she has no reason to bother trying!

Harlowout - 2

Harlow would suit a variety of households provided they can spend time with her and include her in their life, be if a family looking for a low energy sidekick or an older person looking for a faithful companion to be by their side. We haven’t yet tested her with cats of other animals, but being a staffy she may not be suitable for such homes.

Missy is a very intelligent, confident and active young dog who will need some hands on training as well as plenty of opportunity to exercise and be stimulated. Only appropriate homes to keep her safe and provide appropriate training and exercise will be considered.

Missy 2 (1)

Missy is a very intelligent, confident and active young dog who will need some hands on training as well as plenty of opportunity to exercise and be stimulated. Only appropriate homes to keep her safe and provide appropriate training and exercise will be considered.

missypds (1)

Missy is a friendly, playful and people oriented pup, who also loves other dogs. The need for some firm boundaries around the house and inclusion in the family activities will be a must for a harmonious environment. She is head strong, and can be destructive if left for too long a periods on her own but she is also a quick learner and eager to please.

Missy has only been in care for over a week but has adapted quickly. Without exercise Missy could easily become destructive but with daily exercise she will be a rewarding member of the family.

missyl - 1

Missy can get over excited and boisterous but with some work on the training regular exercise and inclusion in the family life, this gorgeous girl will be a rewarding addition to the right family.

Huey

Breed: Queanbeyan cutie Size: Medium Age: about 3 months  
Contact: Natalie, nataleej@yahoo.com
Activity: Moderate to High

Huey - 1 (1)

Huey is an endearing puppy with loads of love to give. He’s a very playful little guy who is friendly and fun loving. His number one love is his people, both big and small. He’s currently living with children (6yo and 3yo) and is usually very gentle with them, although he sometimes forgets his manners and jumps up but this will improve with continued training.

Huey - 1 (5)

Huey is also living with an elderly Great Dane cross and has learned to give him the space he needs, but plays well with the young resident Maltese cross.

Huey - 1 (4)

Huey is quite a bright youngster and is doing a great job with learning good doggy manners so will benefit from finding someone willing to continue his training. He is quite responsive to rewards based training, so is a pleasure to train. He can be a little hesitant in new situations and will look to his person for guidance and confidence.

Huey - 1 (3)

Huey will make a wonderful and devoted companion, and would do well in a home where he is included as part of the family with someone home more often than not, or where he has another friendly doggy friend to keep him company if his family is out.
