8 Months old Neutered Male “champion tail-wagger” mix!

Hello out there! My name is Archer and I am giving this shout-out in hopes of meeting my forever family. You see, I came into ARF’s care after not having the happiest start to life, but things have sure looked up! I’m living in a nice foster home with 2 humans and a great foster fur brother. He is calm and friendly and is teaching me not to be afraid of things. I am still practicing how to be comfortable in a crate, and while I try to ease into that my foster parents have decided to let me sleep on a comfy dog pillow. I just want to be with them and I’m very respectful of my lovely surroundings! I give puppy kisses in the morning as the best alarm clock ever!

I’m great at going outside to do my “business”, and other times when we go for walks I am super happy to meet any people or dogs along the way. I take a brief moment to sniff, say hello, and then my tail never stops moving! Other times I love to play with my toys, especially ones that have stuffing inside. Car rides are a fun adventure and I don’t mind being a passenger in the least bit. My foster mom tells everyone that I am eager to please and a great provider of love.

I have been neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed, microchipped and treated with Revolution. With my forever-puppy looks, and my kind spirit, I am going to be a super canine family member! If you would like to apply to adopt me, just click on the ‘adopt-me’ icon beside my handsome photo.

2 Months old Neutered Male ADOPTION PENDING!

14 Months old Spayed Female 'social butterfly' mix!

Well hello there! I'm Isabella and I'm one happy rescue dog! My foster mom says I "exude happiness". I'm not sure what that means but I know my tail is always wagging, I'm always smiling and I absolutely love life. I was very thin and sick when ARF rescued me but now I'm feeling great. I'm a medium sized dog with a gorgeous girly figure now. Foster mom says I'm absolutely beautiful, inside and out!

My top ten list of things that keep me happy include: humans, playing with my canine buddies, long walks, swimming, car rides, off leash hikes in safe areas, squeaky toys, rawhides, peanut butter filled kings, and most of all, snuggling with my humans! I'd say I'm a pretty well rounded gal.

I've been told I'm a very social butterfly. Foster mom gives me tasty liver treats when I remember to sit nicely and remember those things she calls "manners". Humans are just so amazing and sometimes I get a little too excited. Foster mom says I'm working hard and I'm a very good student. I've already earned an A+ when it comes to crate training, leash walking, recall, and expert couch cuddler.

I'm a bubbly girl who loves to go places and get lots of exercise and stimulation. I'm looking for an active family who will include me in their daily activities without too much alone time. I'm spayed, fully vaccinated, and micro-chipped as well. If you live outside the city of London and you're looking for an energetic canine friend with loads of loving personality, all it takes is a click on the "Adopt Me" icon next to my picture to get things started. Looking forward to meeting you!

12 Months old Spayed Female 'bold-n-beautiful' mix!

Lyla is a beautiful dog with a lot of love to give. This girl came into ARF’s care with a very sore toe, and through regular care from the vet and her attentive foster parents she is now in tip top shape! She loves to go for walks and has mastered her leash skills, only getting excited when she sees the odd rabbit on the way. She is an energetic girl who loves to chase balls and toss her toys around the yard. After a gradual introduction to the resident dogs in her foster home she has fit in well with the group and enjoys their company. Lyla is very curious about the resident cats, and doesn’t really understand why they are different from dogs, so she would likely do best in a forever home that does not have these small critters.

Lyla is trained to sleep in her cozy crate at night and when left alone for periods during the day. Housetraining is complete and she is clever to pick up new skills. She adores her humans and will lavish anyone with kisses. She is still very much a puppy, so is looking for a forever home that will be active with her, going on hikes or playing fetch in a park.

Lyla has been spayed, vaccinated, de-wormed and microchipped. If you are on the hunt for an athletic, affectionate and super smart girl then look no further! Click on the ‘adopt-me’ icon beside Lyla’s photo to apply for adoption.
