Zara

Oct 11, 2018

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

UPDATE 12 OCT: Zara has found herself a lovely new home and will be moving in next Friday 19th

Zara is another girl who has come into care from a breeding situation and is best buddies with Lola. Zara is relatively active and loves to race as fast as she can up and down the yard (she is quick!).

Zara seems younger than her years and her very favourite thing is toys.  She loves all the toys and to carry around the squeakies before slowly picking them apart limb by limb.  Zara is very intelligent but lacks confidence and finds new people and situations challenging and somewhat scary.

Zara has also lacked training in her life, though tries hard to please. She will need an experienced home to support and to build her confidence across a variety of situations.

Zara is not suited to a home with children, small animals or cats.  Her ideal doggy companion would be a confident, calm and friendly dog.

Harper is such a unique girl.  She looks like a little gremlin with her wide-faced smile. She is a popular pooch in her foster home with people falling in love with her unusual but pretty  looks and big personality.

Harper has come from a breeding situation where she has not had a lot of exposure to the world, so she can be fearful of new situations and people but warms up quickly once she gets to know you. While Harper is athletic and  loves to have a play in the garden, she needs to live with her family and is an inside dog – especially with her super short and sleek coat.

Harper has always lived with another dog and therefore will need another confident dog for company.  As Harper can get a bit over excited, and at times a bit over-stimulated when playing with another dog, a companion dog that is a bit more laid back would suit her best.

Harper (1)

Harper is a vocal girl who has her friends and enemies on the TV, which she watches intently. Harper also will ensure that everything is where it should be in the yard. Given Harper’s lack of training in her previous life, she will need an experienced home to progress her leash walking and to manage her lively personality.

Her toilet training is improving but will need consistency to be a success. Harper will thrive in the right home and will provide much entertainment and love to her family. Harper would best suit a quieter home without small children, cats or other small animals.

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.

ARF puppies are all assessed as being in the Silver category in our Perfect Match system and are available at the special price of $400 (incl GST) which includes microchipping, desexing, C3 vaccination, worming and $100 contribution towards training classes.

Version 2

Princess Lulu is looking for a kingdom to call her very own. She is a sweet, playful, happy, affectionate little pup who will grow into being a loyal and loving best friend.

To achieve this, she will need subjects willing to continue her training and socialisation on an ongoing basis. This will include puppy school, regular outings and being included in family activities.

She wants to explore the world and have lots of good experience to build on the social skills she already has.

Princess Lulu’s current subjects include two older dogs (a Staffy and a Jack Russell) who she plays happily and respectfully with, and a 10 Yr old child who she adores. She has mastered the doggy door and is working hard on her sit and stay.
She has also met some bigger dogs who she was very happy to play with.

Lulu will want to stay quite active she loves to play games with her toys and her people and will need daily walks to keep fit and burn off some energy. She would do well as part of an active family who have time to devote to her ongoing training and mental stimulation.

She loves her food and those who serve her need to be on time with her meals. She would also like to be an inside outside dog given her short coat.

She sleeps happily in her bed through the night and loves to wake up to lots of cuddles and pats in the morning.
If you think you can provide Princess Lulu with the perfect kingdom please send me an email with a little about yourself.

 UPDATE 16 October   Dolly has found herself a new home and will be moving in on the weekend

Dolly very recently arrived in foster care and so far she’s a dream to have around. As it is early days I’ll add more to her profile as we get to know her.

Here she is after her extreme makeover looking pretty  glam. You’d never know she was 13 because she finds it easy keeping up with my two younger terriers!

Dolly would best suit a home where her owners were around a lot as she loves to be close to people. Because of Dolly’s age I feel she’d be best suited to a home without children as she’s such a quiet girl who sometimes startles at loud noises and sudden movements.

This pretty girl is a friendly sweet natured dog who is very happy getting attention and cuddles.

Orley 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 his quarantine and vet work are completed.

Orley - 2

Orley has been in care almost two weeks and will soon be out of quarantine and available for adoption. After some initial nervousness, assisted in part by my dog keeping him company, he has relaxed and started to come out of his shell, revealing a big loveable boofer who wants nothing more than to please his person, get pats and snuggles, and play with his tennis ball.

Orley - 1

Orley is toilet trained and can use the dog-door to go in and out as needed. He has good house manners on the whole, although some paw prints on the kitchen bench suggest he is not as well behaved when left unsupervised! Dog treats have mysteriously disappeared but if Orley knows the culprit, he’s not saying.

Orley - 6

Orley loves walks and is good on lead. Sometimes he is a bit too keen to pee on absolutely every tree he sees, but we’re working on this. Orley has only been on a few car trips but has managed well and enjoys sticking his head out the window. Orley is most happy sleeping on the couch or on the bed with his foster carer, but willingly sleeps on his dog bed or in his crate.

Orley - 4

Orley gets along well with my own dog, and has been very gentle and polite with visitors to my house, including children. Orley readily sits for pats and treats but has not yet mastered the art of the pawshake. Orley loves company so would suit a family that has time to spend with him and give him affection, and possibly a furry playmate or two (he is untested with cats).
