Thank you for considering an ARF pup. ARF’s NSW Rehoming Organisation Number is R251000000.

Most puppies receive many 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.

ARF puppies are all assessed as being in the Silver category in our Perfect Match system and are available at the special price of $400 (incl GST) which includes microchipping, desexing, C3 vaccination, worming and $100 contribution towards training classes.

Jack is a delightful, happy pup who is now ready to find a forever home with a family who will value his loyalty and companionship and include him as a member of the family.

If you are looking for a loving four-legged companion who wants to be involved in whatever is going on, then Jack’s the pup for you. He loves affection and will soak up as many cuddles as he can get. He is not as outgoing as his brother (Ryan) and is happy to follow his lead in games and adventures; sometimes he just prefers to have some quiet time to himself.

Jack’s new family will need to provide him with opportunities to continue learning about the world around him so that he grows into a well behaved and socialised doggy citizen. To help owners give their puppy a good start to life, ARF includes a contribution towards a puppy training course as part of the adoption fee.

Kelpies are a very athletic breed!

Kelpies are a very athletic breed!

Kelpies are an active, working breed. As such, Jack will need a good walk twice a day and some activities that engage his mind eg training and tricks. Obedience training, agility or other fun doggy sports are great activities for smart kelpies. He loves being involved in whatever is going on around the house too and is a dab hand at helping in the garden or anything that his hoomans are doing.

Jack has settled into his foster home really well and is learning some basic tricks, commands and household ‘manners.’ He sleeps quietly through the night in his crate and travels well in the car. When Jack first came into care, he ‘guarded’ his food which is a behavior that has improved significantly but may need to be managed in his new home.


If you believe you can offer Jack a home that will meet his needs you are welcome to email his carer with some information about your doggy experience and how he would fit in with your family.
