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.

Astra is assessed as being in the Bronze category in our Perfect Match system and is microchipped, desexed, vaccinated, wormed and available for $350 (incl GST) .


Astra is a very clever girl who has the beginnings of being a great obedience / agility / flyball dog! She feels that belonging to the dog sport community will really suit her and is hoping to join a family that is already hooked on dog sports!


Because Astra thinks she is so clever, she believes she should never be alone in the backyard, this means she will need a doggy companion – preferably one that is a little older who can help her continue to learn good doggy skills. She would like a dog about her size that is up for rough and tumble games but is also happy to chill out, have a nap and a sun bake.


Astra travels really well in the car and is always up for a trip to the river (or really anywhere her family goes), she loves her crate and will go in both on command and when looking for a comfy place to sleep. Astra is housetrained and would love to move in with a family that will welcome her into their hearts, home and car!


As lovely as Astra is (and she IS lovely!!), she does have some quirks! Astra does not cope well with being left at home on her own so will not be able to be in a single dog household. Also, because Astra is so clever if she does not have her brain exercised she can get a little bored and therefore get a little cheeky – this includes chewing on any plastic she can get her paws on and if she feels the clothes have been on the line a little to long she may decide to help you by getting them off – however we have not been able to teach her how to fold and put them away yet – maybe that could be the first trick you teach her?
