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.

Koda is assessed as being in the Silver category in our Perfect Match system and is desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, wormed and will be available for $350 (incl GST) once his quarantine is completed.

UPDATE 20 FEB: Koda has found his new home and will be setting off soon.

Meet Koda.

I know what you’re thinking – he’s ‘just another brindle staffy’, but once you see past his coat colour, this little guy will steal your heart with his quirky personality and beautiful manners.

Koda is only small in stature,Weighing in at only about 15 kilos, but his personality more than makes up for it. When he wants a pat, he will trot over to you on his little bow legs and pigeon toes, with his head tilted and making a rather cute smacking sound with lips in excitement, then he’ll just sit at your feet and lean into you for a head scratch, or roll over onto his back for a tummy rub. The only time he jumps up on me is when I have come home from being at work all day, and he gets so excited that he forgets his manners for a brief moment, but he collects himself very quickly and will just run around trying to get your attention and playing with his foster siblings.

Koda can be a bit unsure of some new things, but it doesn’t take him long to realise that everything is OK and then he is the happiest, smoochiest little dog who tries so hard to do the right thing all the time. He absolutely adores his people, and is proving to be a very loyal, loving boy who is super keen to please and loves to follow you around staring at you adoringly with his big, brown cross eyes and furiously wagging his little kinked tail helicopter style!

Not only is Koda ridiculously adorable, but he also has some basic training under his belt, and his manners are impeccable. He has a very solid sit, he is quickly getting the hang of drop and wait, and he will go to his bed when asked and stay there – mostly…. He does try to sneak over for a cuddle on the lounge every now and again. He does this by creeping forward with his front legs, and leaving the back legs on his bed frog style, but if he is not invited up, he goes straight back to his bed and curls up for a nap.

Koda does need a helping hand getting into the crate (we are working on that) but once he is in there he settles well and will sleep through the night without a peep. He is completely toilet trained and has not had any accidents, or marked, anywhere in the house. He is very appropriate with his foster siblings, playing really nicely with my girl when she invites him to play or just chilling out if she doesn’t, and apart from a quick sniff every once in a while, he leaves my boy in peace, which is how he prefers it when there is a foster in the house!

This amazing little guy really does have it all, and he is ready to waltz into his new home and show just how special he is. Koda would love a family who will include him in their everyday activities, continue to teach him new things, and give him all the cuddles. He will give you his whole heart in return.
