Ezri has only been out of the pound for just over a week so is still de-stressing from that environment and getting used to being back in a home. However her personality is already starting to shine. It’s clear that she is a joyful dog, enjoying a great play with my dog as much as a good nap. She loves affection and treats, so has taken to crate training and learning her manners well.

We’ll continue working on these so she learns that she shouldn’t shout at (bark) or headbutt (poking her nose in their face) other dogs to encourage them to play with her! There’s enthusiasm to play, and then there’s Ezri!

Version 2

Ezri has taken a bit too enthusiastically to my cat, but was great with my neighbour’s kids. For the moment I wouldn’t recommend she’s in a house with cats or other small animals but I’ll monitor her behaviour and see if she improves.

There are still many more fun times ahead for Ezri – car trips, baths, long walks, meeting the vacuum cleaner – so stay tuned for the Amazing Adventures of Ezri!

Willow is a tiny, pocket-sized shepherd, but don’t let her size fool you! This little lady is full of go, and loves a good game, especially anything that involves balls or frisbees. She will chase those forever. She is a very active girl, who loves playing, going for long walks, and would make an ideal jogging partner.

Willow is highly food- and ball motivated and is a dream to train. She came into foster care without any training, but she learns very quickly and loves to work with people. She has made great progress on some basic training such as ‘sit’, ‘down’, ‘shake’, ‘wait’, ‘no’, ‘leave it’, ‘off’, and short stays. She has also made some good progress on loose lead walking while in foster care but has a little way to go in that department.

Further training in general would be very beneficial for this smart girl. Both German Shepherds and Malinois are highly active and extremely intelligent dogs. Willow will need an outlet for this energy and participating in some sort of dog sport would be highly beneficial for her. She is not suitable for somebody who is only interested in her as a (backyard) pet. She is currently an indoor/outdoor dog and will require a home where she can be part of the family.

Willow is a very social girl, and in general gets along with everybody, whether they are human or dog. She is quite cautious and can get insecure at times, especially if she encounters something that she has not seen before. She will need ongoing confidence building to help her deal with those situations.

If you think Willow could be the dog for you, please contact her carers for further information.

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.

When Paddy came to us he had had a rough start to life.    It was obvious that he had had very little training and only knew a sometimes “sit.”

However, he is so motivated and eager to learn and please his humans that he is already walking well on a loose lead and quickly learning his other commands.

190519-Paddy-2
Paddy is a wonderfully athletic boy who would love his new owner to be interested in outdoor activities which they could share and enjoy together. He shows the potential to be an absolute whizz at dog agility or similar dog sports activities.

This is a boy who wants to explore and experience life and he will need a family who can keep up with his athleticism and joy for life. He wakes up full of beans and ready to fill his day with adventures and enthusiasm. He has not had these opportunities in his past and we want this for his future well-being. He is super affectionate and would love to be included in all of the family’s activities.

190519-Paddy-3
Paddy needs a home where he can share his joy in a routine of daily walks, exercise and play. He can be a goofball when he is active and running, so may be too boisterous and energetic for small children.

His new family will need to continue his training. This will assist him in his quest to become a good canine citizen and also in losing his initial clinginess and becoming more confident and independent. We have found the initial training an easy task because he loves his treats.
190519-Paddy-4
Paddy loves an opportunity to play with his toys and will happily chew, squeak, throw and chase as long as you are there with him and then he will put them all back in his toybox. He does not destroy his belongings, but you may need an extra supply of tennis balls to cater for one of his favourite activities.
Paddy has been living as an only dog with his carers and gets on well with other dogs. We feel that he would potentially enjoy the company of another suitable doggy companion, as he becomes distressed if left alone by himself for too long.

He travels well in the car and is happy to sit and gaze out the window watching the passing scenery.190519-Paddy-5
Paddy is looking for a family who will include him in all aspects of their lives.
If you are interested in finding out more about Paddy, please contact his foster carers.

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.

Would you like a running partner who won’t talk your ear off, dump their problems on you or slow you down? Want one that is guaranteed to turn up every day and be ready and rearing to go, to push you to new limits! I have the deal for you!

Rubydoo - 6

Ruby is an almost 2yr old Kelpie X Huntaway X Airedale mix born and bred in the Riverina region. Like most country folk she is a hard worker and likes to keep busy during the day, but sleeps well at night. Ruby was rehomed by ARF as a young pup and had a great home living with children until unfortunately chronic allergies suffered by her family meant that she had to come back into care.

Rubydoo - 5

Ruby needs a busy home, while she will have a cuddle on the couch with you that is certainly not her preferred lifestyle. She was a very happy running partner for her previous mum and has missed that since coming into care, though we’ve kept her busy with ball throwing and off lead play. She attends Pups4Fun daycare and will happily play with up to 50 other dogs with no issues, and is great to walk on lead.

Rubydoo - 3

She has some good basic training but would excel at dog sports or obedience. She is smart as a whip, and has a high food and ball drive.

Version 2

Ruby is currently living with two other dogs quite happily. She can get a little possessive of her food around other dogs so she is fed separately and that works fine for her. She is on the more dominant end of temperament when in her home environment so would be best living with submissive dogs or she is more than happy living by herself and finding things to entertain herself with.

Rubydoo - 4

Ruby can become fixated on things such as shadow chasing if not given adequate exercise, but we are managing this through keeping her busy.

Rubydoo - 7

If you are looking for a super active and fun friend to keep you company or to smash out some sports with Ruby is your girl! Just email me a bit about yourself.
