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.

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

If you are looking for a chilled out, cuddly, polite, friendly, fun, easy going dog then look no further than Frank.


This guy has only been out of the pound for 5 days, and in that time has proven to be a very welcome house guest. He loves to just hang out, and will find a spot to lay down and just be.

This doesn’t mean that all he does is sleep though. He’s certainly not a dog who is going to tear through your home at a million miles an hour, and does enjoy a good game of zoomies and a tennis ball to chase.


Frank loves other dogs and is very appropriate and respectful of my two resident dogs. I haven’t allowed much rough play, but if they had the opportunity they would love to have a good wrestle!

Frank is just a great dog. He behaves in the house, he is respectful of my dogs, he is responsive to direction and for a fresh poundie, he is pretty obedient. When it’s time to settle, he does and if he’s asked to stop doing something he shouldn’t be doing, he will listen. He has basic manners and will sit and offer a paw, but has the potential to learn loads more.


I could go on and on about how amazing this lad is, but the best way to find out is to meet him for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.



Note: Frank is only available for rehoming in the ACT, no interstate enquiries please.
