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.

Stevie 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 his quarantine and vet work are completed.

Stevie arrived in care a couple of weeks ago, and has settled into his foster home wonderfully. He is a wiggly and happy boy, who loves to snuggle on the couch!

When Stevie came to us, he only knew sit, but in two weeks has learnt, shake, down, stay, and touch! He is a dream to train, and so motivated. Stevie loves to sniff things, so would be great to do some nose work with too.

He hardly pulls at all on the lead when out walking, and will happily trot along next to you at your pace, only tugging a little when he wants to sniff any really good smells he finds! He responds to corrections so well.

Stevie met many other dogs during his stay in the pound, and always played so happily and nicely with every dog he could, so would potentially love to be re homed with some brothers and/or sisters. We haven’t had much chance to see him with many other dogs outside the pound environment, so will update with more info on this now his quarantine is over and he is getting out and about.

A perfect gentleman in the home, Stevie sleeps soundly through the night, is toilet trained, and seems to be happy enough when left alone inside, though he does get a little bit lonely when left for long periods of time. So ideally, we are looking to re home him with another doggy sibling to keep him company throughout the day, or with someone who won’t be out for too long during the day.

Stevie is capable of jumping over tall wooden fences, and will do so if he is left alone outside, so his new family will need to have tall colour bond fences and a very secure yard. Please don’t apply if you don’t have these.
