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.

Jake 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.

Jakob - 4

Jake is a young 5-6 month old pup, probably a mix of Labrador retriever and german shepherd from his appearance. He has only been in care a few days so is still settling in.

Jakoblying

He has come to us as a very timid young man. He does not appear to have had much done in terms of playing, or walking on lead, or socializing, or training, but he has shown himself to be an affectionate boy with a longing to be with his people. He is slowly relaxing in his new environment, and is responding to gentle training to his lead. He knows his name and has a good response when called.

Jakob - 2

Jake appears to be naturally house trained and is good at signaling when he needs to go outside. We’re working on some basic commands. He is relaxing enough to join with the other dogs in play and has chased a few balls. He sleeps well next to his people, on his own bed, and is very respectful of the other dogs in the house.

Jakob - 5

He is a very good looking boy, and with the right exposure to new sights, sounds and situations over the coming months I believe he will make a great family dog.

Jakobinline

He has met a few different people now without any anxiety, and we will continue his socializing over the coming weeks. He is not a dog who will take to being left alone for long periods at this time, but that may come with time and his growing confidence.

Jakob - 8

A great challenge for someone wanting to bring on a new dog.

Sansa has only recently arrived in care and a full profile will be provided once she has settled in and her carers know more about her personality and manners.

In the meantime, here is the summary from her pound assessment:

This stunning lady loves her people and is super smart. She loved to run around the yard with the ball in her mouth, and was so happy about it! She has good basic training, but is very very strong on lead, and would benefit from further training.

She loves her treats, so that would be easy. She also loves to have fun, and that could be used for training. She was a little forward and intense meeting the tester dog, but was able to meet.

She would just need slow introductions, as she might not get on with every dog. A confident and intelligent girl who would be a dream to train, and would make a loyal friend.

Aussie Bloke looking for love

Hendrix free from the pound

My name is Hendrix and I am a good looking young bloke looking for love. I may not be able to play the guitar like Jimi but I can assure you I will make your heart sing and I am certainly one of a kind.

hendrix coat

I like nothing better than being outdoors with my family and observing or being part of the daily activities. I enjoy cars whilst I am not into Summernats, I do enjoy trips in the Ute in fact road trips anywhere make me very happy.

hendrix ute

I like to socialise with others, 4 legged or 2 legged I am not fussy. I love everyone and love nothing better than having a play with other furry friends and hanging with the humans. In fact I get so happy when my people come home that I can’t help but sing (more like a yodel) to them! I do jump up sometimes but am getting better with that every day I just sometimes cannot contain my happiness.

hendrix sit

I might be a big boy but I have a special toy that I snuggle up to every night when I go to bed.

I love having fun and am a bit of a goofball so would love a home that is active and will keep me busy with them.

henrixnbros

I consider myself to be a foodie! When I say that I mean I LOVE food. Essentially if you want to teach me anything I work for anything that I can eat!

I am a loyal loving man that has so much to give fun, laughter and lots of cuddles. Most importantly I am looking for a forever family to call my very own.

So swipe right for me!

Sasha is a playful, affectionate and friendly dog. Her ideal day is snuggled up with her humans, binge watching the latest show on Netflix.

sashaunder (1)

Sasha’s motivations in life are food and affection. As a result of this, Sasha has been easy to train and is always happy to sit, shake and wait if it results in cuddles or treats. With a little bit of guidance it would be easy to teach this beautiful dog new tricks.

sashaout

Her playful and happy mannerism is a delight to come home to after a hard day at work and can turn any day into a playful, fun day. Sasha often approaches people (even strangers) with a beautiful full body wag. Because she gets excited by pats and cuddles, she often jumps up on people so she would not be ideal in a home with small children. While she has only playful intentions, she still needs some extra training to get her out of this habit.

sashainblnkie (1)

Sasha’s delightful nature makes it hard not to fall in love with her. If your back is turned, this girl loves to sneak in an opportunity to jump onto a couch or bed where she can cuddle her humans. Make no mistake, she knows how to give puppy dog eyes that would melt anyone’s heart.

sashawindo

She is protective of the house when other dogs walk by and will bark at them. However she is by no means a guard dog and does not bark at people. Normally she is very quiet until she falls asleep and snores away loudly but soundly.

sasha69

Due to only just being de-sexed Sasha hasn’t had the opportunity to socialise much since coming into care. She adores people and she will be socialised with other dogs in the coming days.

Sasha’s personality would suit a wide range of families, from a single pooch home with her humans all day, to a busy family that has lots going on. If you are interested, please send me an email. Be warned, you may fall in love with her at first sight!
