Jul 16, 2017

Thank you for considering an ARF pup. Most puppies receive many 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.

ARF puppies are all assessed as being in the Silver category in our Perfect Match system and are available at the special price of $400 (incl GST) which includes microchipping, desexing, C3 vaccination, worming and $100 contribution towards training classes.

UPDATE: 23 JULY
Oakey has found her new home and will be moving shortly.

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.

She is currently learning all the things that come along with doggy life like walking on lead. She sleeps beautifully all night in her crate and is going well with her housetraining. Birdy loves to learn and is very quick to pick up what you want.

Birdy is looking for a home where she will be a big part of family life and get to have lots of fun adventures and training.

We will update info on Birdy as we get to know her, but if you are interested in making her a part of your home just email me a bit about yourself.

Lyta

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.

Lyta is assessed as being in the Silver category in our Perfect Match system and is desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, wormed and available for $150 (incl GST)

UPDATE 18 JULY Lyta’s carer has received a number of applications and is sorting through them so she is on hold for now.

lyta - 3

Lyta is a beautiful, gentle, tiny dog (weighing about 3kgs) looking for a patient and quiet home where she can spend the rest of her days snoozing on the couch, going on short, brisk walks (footpaths preferred) and being generally adored and adorable.

Lyta is timid to start with, and has been in foster care for a couple of weeks gradually building up her courage with her foster carer. After a few days of being quite retiring, she gradually came out of her shell, and is now a happy, if still gentle little girl. She is likely to take a few weeks to bond with her new owner, so would like a home where she can settle in at her own pace and get to know people slowly. However, a little patience will give you the most wonderful little dog. She would probably be best suited to a home without children, and would be a perfect companion for an older person or couple.

Lyta spends her days mostly snoozing on the couch (now her carer has made her a little pillow ladder, so she can climb her way up!) and is extra-happy if she can snooze on a heated throw until she’s all warmed up. As a very tiny dog, she must be allowed to stay and sleep inside both day and night and will need warm rugs in winter. She is house-trained and has learned to use the dog door in no time (though using it with the flap down took a little longer, but she got there :) )

Lyta has recently started going on walks and has proven very happy to trot along, particularly if she gets the odd treat, and if she’s allowed time to think about things that worry her (and take a bit of a wide berth around concerning things like prams). She prefers to stick to footpaths and roads and only short walks for now.

Lyta is still learning about stairs and would prefer a house without internal stairs, although she is learning to use those at her carer’s house. If she moves into a house with stairs, her new owner would need to be willing to carry her up and down them for a couple of weeks until she gets used to them.

Lyta would be happy to live with another small, gentle dog and is doing well with her foster sisters (also small and older). She doesn’t appear to have lived with cats and, after bravely confronting one in her carer’s backyard, turned tail and fled inside at high speed, so she probably isn’t suited to living with big, scary cats! Lyta has the cutest, tiniest, almost silent bark, so would be suited to apartment or townhouse living.

If you are interested in offering Lyta a wonderful home for the rest of her days, please email her carer and let them know a little about the life Lyta could expect with you.
