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.

Tuppence 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)


My name is Tuppence and I am a leggy blonde! Like any blonde I’m smart, silly, drop dead gorgeous and as an added bonus, a big cuddle bug. Do I love pats? Do I ever!


I’m not a fussy eater and I love my food sooo much! My foster mum has been training me with my breakfast every day so I’m learning lots of tricks – I can sit, spin, and I’ll even sit between your legs if you’ll let me.


I really love playing with my foster brother. He’s a staffy so a bit of a bull dozer, but I hold my own with him. I’d really love to have another doggy pal, but I could be ok as an only dog if I don’t have to be alone for whole days.

If I fits, I sits.

If I fits, I sits.

I’m not a big fan of cats or other small animals so if you’re interested in taking things further it’s probably best if you don’t have one. I really like other dogs once I’ve met them. My foster Mum is using patience and lots of treats to help me get close to them without barking, but I’ll get there with your help – and then I’m a faithful pal.


My foster mum has been helping me build my confidence a lot and it’s really important that you keep working on that with me. Don’t worry – she’ll teach you how, and if you have some experience with training other dogs that would be awesome!

What I really love is urban agility, like a little kid. I love to climb and jump up and balance standing on different surfaces that my mum finds when we are out and about because it means I use my brain and not just my feet. It also helps me be distracted and more confident if there’s an unfamiliar dog around.

I do really like young people, but I tend to jump up so I’m probably not much good in a home with very small kids (under 10-11) because I wouldn’t want to knock them over. It’s also really important that you have solid fences as I’ve been known to dig a bit.


If you think you’d like to meet up for real, then send my foster mum an email with some information about yourself – I’d reply to you myself but it’s hard to type with claws and no thumbs.
