Willow

Jun 10, 2019

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.

Willow 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).

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.

Update 21 May Sophie’s carer has been overwhelmed with enquires and is not taking any more until she has considered these.

Professional lap dog

Petite mature lady seeks human companionship. I just lost my human to cancer but my match maker (Giselle) said “it’s time to move on…you are still young Sophie!.”

About me:

I love my ball and I would love to play around the house. You don’t need to play with me, I’m an independent woman. As longs as you provide few extra small squeaky balls we will be fine.

I’m all about hugs and snuggles…I know, I’m small but size doesn’t matter…My hugs are still as good as a Great Dane’s!.

I’m not keen on super long walks but happy to join you as long as you are open to carry me after 30 minute. In fact, I love to snooz in your arms, no matter sitting or walking. I’m only 2.5 kilo.

I’m a real lady, I don’t talk loudly, I don’t beg for food and I avoid any kind of confrontation…

I like dog friends but if it were just you and me, life would be wonderful. As I said, I’m small (size 0) so Giselle said young children will make it complicated.

I am also into fashion and I bring my wardrobe with me when we move in together, so If you have some decent closet and a good taste for fashion then look no further and shoot a message to Giselle and we can grab a cocktail and have a quick make out sesh.
