Annie

Oct 19, 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.

Annie 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 her quarantine and vet work are completed.

Annie has been in foster care for a couple of weeks now and to say she is an easy girl to live with is an understatement.

She enjoys the indoor life, lounging around on her bed. She is always up for a cuddle and has lovely indoor manners, appears toilet trained, gets on well with my dogs and cats and doesn’t bark.

Annie is not quite ready for adoption while we sort out a lameness she has in her front leg and once we get to the bottom of that she would love nothing more than to be a lounge lizard in some one’s house being pampered and having lots of cuddles.

Keep an eye out in the next few weeks for Annie to be up for adoption

Sena - 5

Sena has just come into care and will be in quarantine for another week. I am still learning about her but so far can report that she is both sunny in name and nature! Sena is a happy and affectionate girl and very eager to please.

Sena - 2

She’s had some life experience, but this has resulted in one smart lady! She likes to be the boss with other dogs, so may be better as a single dog, but as she is food driven she learnt her basic manners quite quickly. She also has some gorgeous Dobby ears that are very expressive!

Dobby?

Did someone say Dobby?

Once Sena has settled more and been desexed, a more complete profile and her carer’s contact details will be made available.

Bolt is a very confident and very friendly little boy with a lot of energy.

20170909_090245

He is great with other dogs and people and would benefit from being with a family that can spend the time playing with him and allowing him plenty of time for exercise. Bolt is still very much a puppy and needs some guidance to get him through his puppy chewing phase.

He loves his squeaker, chew toys and his own tail! Bolt brings a lot of joy to the young children he currently resides with and would fit in well with a young family.

freddy - 5

Freddy is a sweet, loveable whippet who thrives on being a true part of the family. He adores his pats and cuddles and to feel like he is a centre of your world. Fred loves to camp up next to you on the couch to take in the latest TV shows or sleep close by overnight.

freddysitty

Fred is lots of fun too – he loves to show off his lithe body with ground covering zoomies and then to come back when you call him. After a run he is happy to chill out for a while or play a bit of fetch with his favourite soft toy. Freddy loves to go for drives in the car and out for walks. He still needs some work on his onlead walking as he needs to build confidence after recent bad experiences; sometimes he will pull on the lead a bit. He is easy to take out and about but is unsure.

freddystside

Freddy came into care as he had been savagely attacked by roaming dogs and suffered life-threatening injuries. With the help of West Queanbeyan Vet, he has healed well in ARF and apart from some scarring, and being unsure of other dogs (especially off-lead ones) until he gets to know them, you would never know the ordeal he has been through.

Archienfred

Freddy LOVES his foster pooch buddies and uses them for confidence and cuddles. A confident canine companion is a MUST for Freddy in his new home.

freddylu

Freddy has fitted in perfectly into his foster home and is so easy and pleasurable to have as part of the foster family.

freddynarchsw

Fred looks forward to sharing his love with a new family. One thing for sure, you would never feel lonely with a pal like Fred.

Huey

Aug 12, 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.

UPDATE 27 September 2017

Huey is taking some time off from searching for his new home to recover from a recent training setback and get back on track. He’ll be back soon, we’re sure of it.

Huey’s baby photo

Huey is an endearing youngster with loads of love to give. He’s a very playful 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 very affectionate and patient with them, although he sometimes forgets his manners and jumps up but this will improve with continued training.

hueyhead

Huey seems to have a real love of children and gets excited whenever he sees kids and will lap up all the attention and cuddles they give.

Huey can be a little slow to warm up to some new adults but once he is comfortable with you he is a delightfully affectionate and happy soul. He will show his people a full body tail wag when he greets them and will lean in for cuddles. He loves to be with his people and to cuddle up with his person whenever he can.

Huey is currently 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. He also greets other friendly dogs in a friendly manner when he is out.

hueyfaceld

Huey is quite a bright youngster and is doing a great job with learning what is expected of him in his foster home. He waits nicely at the door to be allowed in and will sit and wait for his food until he’s given the ok to eat. Huey happily sleeps in his crate at night and will sometimes share his sleeping space with his small foster brother who Huey often likes to use as a pillow!

hueyad

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. Although Huey is well behaved in the car he does find this form of travel quite stressful so will need a home that can continue to work with him to help him overcome this.

hueysnif

Huey will make a wonderful and devoted companion, and will do well in a home committed to his continued training and 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.
