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.
Sam is a Foxie mix and Millie is a Cavalier mix. Both are assessed as being in the Silver category in our Perfect Match system and are microchipped, desexed, vaccinated, wormed and available within the ACT and nearby NSW for a total of $300 (incl GST).
Millie and Sam are best mates. They love to hang out, play and sleep together, so they’re looking for a home together. They are easy to live with and love lots of cuddles with people they know.
Sam is shy little dog but he soon warms up and wants pats from strangers. Millie is more adventurous generally, but finds it quite hard to meet new people. They’re both very cuddly once they get to know you. In their foster carer’s home, they’re relaxed and easy going. They’re best suited to a quieter house, with an older person or couple.
Millie is nine and Sam is about six. Millie has a heart condition. It doesn’t slow her down and she still loves to play and go for walks, but she will need to take medication for the rest of her life at a current cost of about $75 per month.
Both dogs travel well in the car and love their walks. They don’t need a lot of exercise, but do like a walk each day to keep life interesting. They sleep quietly through the night and are beyond the age where they’re destructive.
They are looking for a home where they’ll be included as part of the family and have access to part of the house or an enclosed verandah when people are out.
If you can offer Millie and Sam a great new home, contact their foster carer and tell her a bit about yourselves and the home you’d offer them.
