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.

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

UPDATE 10 December  

Oka has found herself a lovely new home (even the cats tolerate her !) and will be moving in next weekend so she is settled for Christmas

Oka is a young female crossbreed, around 10 months of age. She has been given the name OKA because of her beautiful yellow ochre colour, especially on her face.

She’s a very dog and person friendly youngster. She has settled well with her foster dog siblings, just wanting to get on with everybody and play. She can be a bit exuberant when first greeting her humans, and is very fond of children, even toddlers. Her enthusiasm needs to be controlled a bit still , but she is learning that “four on the floor” gets the attention.

She does not appear to have been very familiar with households and all their machines and furnishings, but she is adapting well. She is confident enough to explore new things and has quickly learned about dog doors.

She appears to be naturally house trained, unless it happens to be pouring with rain! She has a nice sit, and will wait politely for dinner, though it is best to make sure she is separated from the other dogs at meal time. She shows signs of being easy to train, with treats, and appears to be easy on the lead, though there is a lot of training still to be done. She settles well on her own bed at night, with her human nearby, and has not had to go out at night.

She can chill with the best of them after a morning walk and play. She has been left alone, once, for a few hours and separated from the other dogs. While she was fine after, she apparently complained a bit about the separation. She may be better housed with another dog, or have people home a lot of the time, at least until she is a bit older and more secure about her situation.

Version 2

So Oka is a very friendly, easy to get on with dog, with an athletic build, lovely long legs and great training potential.
