UPDATE: Due to the large number of enquiries for Maisie, we are unable to take any more until the enquiries already received have been assessed.

Thank you for considering an ARF pup. 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.

Maisie and Sophie came to us from a litter of 14 pups that came into rescue in Canberra.

They are fun loving, playful, sweet little pups who have settled into foster care really well.

They love exploring the yard and as they have grown, and their confidence increased, they have started to venture further and further into the bushes and trees at the back.

They are pretty smart little pups and have learnt to use the dog door by watching the older dogs. We are working very hard on toilet training, which is improving every day.


Maisie will need a home dedicated to continuing her training and socialisation. The first 16 weeks is the most important time in a puppy’s life to expose her to good experiences and grow her confidence.

She will need to attend puppy school and would love to have a family where she is included in daily activities and as member of the family.

Pups this age will need at least 3 meals a day until about 6 months of age when two will suffice.

Maisie will need lots of toys and games to ensure that she is occupied and stimulated. She loves kids, and would love a family with children however older kids who know how to be gentle with a tiny puppy would be best.

She a bit of a sook and over reacts a bit when she is startled or shocked and takes a minute to calm down. But she loves to snuggle, but seems to like her own space when its nap time.

Maisie is very curious and seeks out adventure and exciting new things. We are regularly extracting her from crevices and small spaces she shouldn’t be in.

Maisie sleeps through the night with her sister Sophie, however as they have never been separated may need time to settle into a sleeping routine without her.

Once old enough she will need a walk everyday along with continued training and socialisation.

If you think you can offer Maisie her happily ever ARFter, please send me an email with a little bit about yourself.
