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.

Paddy 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).

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.

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.

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.
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
