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.

Ruby 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).

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!

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Stevie arrived in care a couple of weeks ago, and has settled into his foster home wonderfully. He is a wiggly and happy boy, who loves to snuggle on the couch!

When Stevie came to us, he only knew sit, but in two weeks has learnt, shake, down, stay, and touch! He is a dream to train, and so motivated. Stevie loves to sniff things, so would be great to do some nose work with too.

He hardly pulls at all on the lead when out walking, and will happily trot along next to you at your pace, only tugging a little when he wants to sniff any really good smells he finds! He responds to corrections so well.

Stevie met many other dogs during his stay in the pound, and always played so happily and nicely with every dog he could, so would potentially love to be re homed with some brothers and/or sisters. We haven’t had much chance to see him with many other dogs outside the pound environment, so will update with more info on this now his quarantine is over and he is getting out and about.

A perfect gentleman in the home, Stevie sleeps soundly through the night, is toilet trained, and seems to be happy enough when left alone inside, though he does get a little bit lonely when left for long periods of time. So ideally, we are looking to re home him with another doggy sibling to keep him company throughout the day, or with someone who won’t be out for too long during the day.

Stevie is capable of jumping over tall wooden fences, and will do so if he is left alone outside, so his new family will need to have tall colour bond fences and a very secure yard. Please don’t apply if you don’t have these.
