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)
Tuppence is a lovely young dog to have around the home. She’s got a lot of personality and has excellent basic training, as well as a few fancy tricks up her sleeve. During the evenings she mooches around the house and sleeps, and in the morning she enjoys starting the day with some rough and tumble with her foster brother. She is a touch smaller than she looks in photos, coming in at around 17kgs.
She is a pretty quiet dog, but if you’ve got possums in the yard she’ll let you know! She’s quite interested in small animals, but perhaps not in a terribly appropriate way, so she isn’t suited to a home with cats, guides pigs, etc.
Around people she’s a total love bug – she’ll snuggle her head up for pats, and if you scratch her in the right spot her back leg just goes nuts.
Tuppence is great with dogs once she gets to know them, however she does take some time and patience with meeting dogs. She doesn’t always have the best approach when seeing dogs out and about, and I’ve been working with her every day on getting her more confident around unfamiliar dogs, and helping to reduce her negative responses. She has come along in leaps and bounds in the past few weeks, however any interested family needs to be willing to continue her training to ensure she continues to excel, and doesn’t fall back on old behaviours.
She loves her food and is very smart, which is excellent to help her training – she just needs a family with a big heart, and the patience and willingness to help her become a sensational dog all-round.
