Hello, I’m Kobar. Nice to meet you.

My name is now Kobar. You may have seen me as Bissie when I was still in the pound and advertised on ARF’s Facebook page, but I have decided to leave my past behind me for a brand new start. I do believe you should always pay homage to what got you where you are, so Kobar is my way of acknowledging I came from the Cobar area, where I had a pretty rough start as I was found as a stray.

That left a bit of a mark on me as I am still uncomfortable without someone around. I do not like to be left alone (my foster Carer calls it separation anxiety) and am looking for someone who is maybe retired or works from home and does not go out a lot, or possibly has a doggie friend who I can companion while they work with me on my issues and we build trust. I would enjoy a secure yard with a tall fence. I do not complain if you have to take me to the kennel or Doggie Day Care– I understand that. I like friendly dogs, and have met my neighbor, an older, gentlemanly poodle, quite kindly.

In the house, I am quite ‘chill’ and not afraid to let my spots show. I am completely house trained, and will let you know quite nicely if perhaps you forgot that it was time to let me outside. I know a few commands, such as Sit, Shake, and I think I am getting the hang of Down also. I can walk quite nicely on the lead and just ask that I am allowed to sniff the grass once in a while when on my walks. I like to stop and stare and people and other dogs, but I don’t rush to them – I am content to stay by your side. We apparently did not play a lot in Cobar, and I am not all that interested in balls or toys. I just like to sit with you or lay by the window. I am great company, so if you want unconditional love and loyalty, please give us a call. Oh… and bring treats please!

Huey has a pretty special request for his forever home. He is looking for a mentor, that special person who can guide him though the occasional hard times, and enjoy the fun and hilarity at others.

Huey just LOVES his people He is such a friendly and happy boy and will make an awesome companion and best friend for a lucky person. He does show fear of men at some times and while he has come a long way and improved out of sight, this is something that he may always struggle with a little. He has successfully conquered large events like Floriade Dogs Day Out and takes regular trips to the city so he is doing amazingly.

Huey gets along super well with dogs of all ages and sizes, and loves a good gallop and zoomie around the yard. He has been helping to raise two tiny 6wk old foster puppies while in foster care, as well as living with his three other large housemates. Huey is still young, large and very much a leggy goofy guy so his ideal companion would be another medium to large active dog. Huey doesn’t cope too well alone, so he would love another doggy companion to hang out with when his family aren’t home.

Huey has been working hard on his training. He walks nicely on lead and has a good grasp of basic commands. He sleeps beautifully in the crate overnight, but is still working on being in there during the day while things go on around him. He has spent a lot of time practicing his crate training in a grooming salon full of noise so he is great with loud noises and activity.

Huey is housetrained and uses a dog door. While he rides very well in his foster carer’s car, he has been known to be a bit of a barker in strange cars so may need some help on this. Huey has been lucky enough to hang out with his friends at Pups4Fun and regularly heads out with up to 20 doggy friends for awesome adventures.

Huey is such a funny and loving guy. Everyone who meets and hangs out with him just falls in love and while there are plenty of people who love him, he needs that special home to take him home. Huey is looking for someone who can help him through any challenges, who will make him a big part of the family and who has another active doggy friend for him to run with.

If you are interested in Huey, please email me with a little bit about yourself and the sort of life that Huey would live with you.

Seth came to us from a country pound as a barely trained and undersocialised youngster and is settling well into foster care, sharing his home with two other dogs.

He lives inside with us and has developed lovely indoor manners.

Seth’s very puppyish still in his behaviour and can be quite full on so he would do best in a home without small dogs or young children. Seth loves kids but due to his size and boofiness he is just a tad too big for smaller children.

His go to move when over excited or seeking attention has been to be a bit mouthy so we have been working on getting him to sit politely instead if he wants our attention. He is making good progress on this but will continue to need consistent training to maintain and develop his calmness.

Seth hasn’t had much experience with the big wide world and so life is quite an adventure for him. His loose lead walking needs a fair amount of work still and this is another area that will benefit from strong, consistent training to carry on the work we have started with hm.

If you would like to meet this adorable boof, please send me an email with some information about what you are offering.

Annie has been in foster care for a couple of weeks now and to say she is an easy girl to live with is an understatement.

She enjoys the indoor life, lounging around on her bed. She is always up for a cuddle and has lovely indoor manners, appears toilet trained, gets on well with my dogs and cats and doesn’t bark.

Annie is not quite ready for adoption while we sort out a lameness she has in her front leg and once we get to the bottom of that she would love nothing more than to be a lounge lizard in some one’s house being pampered and having lots of cuddles.
