Scout

Feb 10, 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.

Scout is assessed as being in the Silver category in our Perfect Match system and will be microchipped, desexed, vaccinated, wormed and available for $350 (incl GST) once he has completed his quarantine and vetwork.

Scout has found his new home and all going well he will be moving in shortly

Scout has just arrived into care and has immediately established himself as the life of the party. He is an absolute goofball who loves to play, and is easy on the eyes as well! If you’ve been looking for a dog that will always be up for a game of fetch, hide and seek, or tug-of-war, then Scout might just be the dog for you.

Scout isn’t fussy about his playmates, he’ll play with anyone who is willing – other dogs, people, or a squeaky toy if there’s no one around to play with him. His two favourite toys at the moment are his squeaky football and his tennis ball, and he’ll happily fling those around the backyard on his own if you’ve had enough playing for one day.

One of Scout’s quirks is that he loves water– he’ll dive straight into a paddling pool, and will even join you in the shower if you give him half a chance. We haven’t tried him out at the beach or lake yet but we think that would be his idea of heaven.

Don’t be fooled by his suave good looks and big grin, Scout is a smart little pupster who will need a home that will keep his mind and body working. Since coming into care without knowing much at all, Scout has learned to sit, drop and shake hands. He is desperate to please and wriggles his whole body with joy when he learns something new and is told what a good boy he is!

Because Scout is still a puppy at heart, he will need to have another patient doggy pal around to play with, keep him company and teach him the ways of the world. He gets along well with his ancient foster sister, but would probably be happier with a dog a bit closer to his age.

If you are looking for a gorgeous, active little dog, and you have another friendly dog who would like a new mate, then please send some information about yourself and the life you could offer Scout to his foster carer.

Rusty has very possibly found himself a new home so is on hold while he prepares himself for life in suburbia.

Rusty has not been in care long but in the meantime we can tell you our initial thoughts of him when we met him in the Pound.

rustystanding-front

Rusty is a very good natured and calm dog who is also affectionate and responsive. He has good basic training walking well on lead so very easy to manage. He does tend to be quite vocal barking in his yard but ok when out with us. He was really fussy about the treats taking them then literally spitting them out! He also wasn’t interested in the tinned food. Lovely boy!

Brooklyn

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.

Brooklyn has found herself a home and all being well she should move in on the weekend.

They just don’t come any sweeter than our Miss Brooklyn.

Main (1)

Brooklyn is a soft-as-butter, sweet-as-pie girl who loves pats and cuddles so much her eyes immediately start closing in pure bliss.

PIC 2 (1)

It’s quite clear that Brooklyn has had a bit of a rough start. She has no expectations of her humans, and tries to make herself as discreet as possible.

PIC 3 (1)

But she has a twinkle in her eye that tells me there is a cheeky girl just waiting for the right moment to burst out. She’ll just need a bit of time and patience, so that she can rediscover her spirit and confidence.

PIC 4 (1)

Brooklyn loves a game of fetch—though she abandons it fairly quickly in favour of pats and cuddles—and is learning the art of tug-of-war—at this stage, she mostly just lets me have the toy, but we’re making progress!

PIC 5 (1)
Brooklyn loves to play with other dogs (though she seems to find small dogs a bit puzzling), and nothing makes her come out of her shell quite like a good game of zoomies or bitey face with her foster brother .

PIC 6 (1)

Brooklyn is looking for a home where she can be allowed inside when her people are home, as part of the family. She gets anxious about being left alone, so would prefer a home with another dog or with humans who are home a lot.

Turbo

Jan 8, 2017


Breed: Cattle dog x Size: Medium Age: 13 years  
Contact:
Activity: Low

Turbo has had a large number of enquiries so we are currently going through them all.  If you would like a dog like Turbo, please fill in a Dog Wanted form with details of the type of dog you want here

IMG_5635

Turbo has lived happily with his family for most of his life but they are moving overseas permanently in the near future and Turbo is unable to go with them.  He is a lovely old dog who is happy to potter around, go for a walk once or twice a week and just chill out with his people.  He does enjoy his ball thrown for him and will let you know when he has had enough.

He’s an affectionate dog, loves and is used to people and children.  He has never lived with a cat so we don’t know how he feels about them.  He is good with other dogs, both on and off lead, and has good recall.

Turbo knows how to sit,and to go to his bed.  He currently sleeps in the garage but would love a home where he could sleep inside with his family, especially when the weather turns cold.  If you would like to meet this lovely gentle dog, please email his foster carer Helen.
