2 Months old Male Adventurous Mix!

Hi Everyone! My name is Ace. I’m an adventurous, curious, happy, playful puppy!!

I live with my foster family right now with an older resident dog and a couple of birds. I love cuddling with my foster parents, having my tummy tickled and giving kisses.
I enjoy spending time outside playing, sitting in the sun and exploring new places.

I am currently learning to “sit”, “lie down” and “shake a paw”. I have an excellent appetite and often offer to help clean out my little sister Lennox’s bowl after I’ve cleaned out mine:)

I try my best to go outside when nature calls but sometimes my foster parents miss my cues. I am working on that, as well as not being anxious when I’m in my crate. I just love being around people and I get sad when they aren’t close by.

If you click on the Adopt Me! icon next to my photo above, you can fill out an application just for me!

12 Months old Spayed Female Sweet Lovebug Mix!

Meet Miss Daphnee! This gorgeous girl is a 45 lb. dog with a HUGE heart! Daphnee is super affectionate and loves being close to her humans. She gives out a ton of kisses and full body tailwags at high speed!

Daphne is an extra special girl not only because of her capacity to love, but also because she needs a family who understands her physical needs. Daphne requires daily exercise/doggie play, and medication, to remain healthy due to hip concerns. Many dogs live wonderful and long lives with this problem, so we're sure hoping there is a super super adopter out there who will give her a chance!

Daphnee came into ARF’s care extremely underweight and very scared. She is looking for a forever family who will continue with her socialization to help her feel safe in unfamiliar situations. Daphnee loves her humans and looks to them for direction.

Daphnee lives in a very busy foster home with many large dogs. She loves toys and never passes on the opportunity to romp and wrestle with the resident four legged members.

Daphnee requires time to become comfortable around unfamiliar dogs. She enjoys leash walks and off leash hikes in safe areas. Daphnee has excellent recall (:

Daphnee has been spayed, micro-chipped, vaccinated and treated with Revolution. If you embrace positive reinforcement training and have the time and patience to commit to Daphnee, she will reward you tenfold. To meet this little lovebug, click on the “Adopt Me” icon next to Daphnee’s picture above!

12 Months old Spayed Female "Wanna be with you" Mix!

Hi there! My name is Kat! I am a social, sweet and snuggly mix all wrapped into a medium sized package.

I currently live with multiple canine and feline friends and I love them all! I was a teenage mom myself and after caring for 8 wee babies it is my turn to find my perfect forever family.

I absolutely love to be with people so I am looking for a family with a stay at home person or can take me to a doggie daycare if they will be gone for long periods. I also love to run and play so am looking for both playtime and cuddle time:)

I have wonderful doggie manners, play skills and walk very well on and off leash. Hiking the trails is super fun but sometimes I do like to follow that big nose of mine;) I have enjoyed my foster home fun and leisure time and am now ready to start the next part of my story. Looking forward to meeting you soon!

Kat is spayed, heartworm negative, fully vaccinted and micro-chipped. She has received dewormer and Revolution as well. To apply for this gorgeous gal, click Adopt me! right beside her photo above!

5 Years old Neutered Male "Mr. Chill" Mix!

This beautiful fellow will get you out for a daily stroll in his stylish red harness then he'll sprawl on the back porch for a nice long nap:)

We think his favourite activity is riding in vehicles, including the John Deere:) He'd love to be your copilot on short or long trips!

Kawpur enjoys swimming, bit of playtime, yummy treats and hugs from his person. Best without felines for this boy. He's a perfect house guest, completely trustworthy inside his home other than food left out on the kitchen counter:) No accidents, chewing, just lounging on the couch until you return!

Kawpur has all his shots including Rabies, dewormer, Revolution and micro-chip too. He is waiting for his person to arrive and invite him to be part of their family. Apply by clicking Adopt me! right next to his photo above!

12 Months old Spayed Female Family Snuggler Mix!

Hello! I am a happy canine who lives in a foster home with resident older dogs and cats. I am truly a cuddle bug and I like to chat:)

I will let you know if I am hungry, happy, disappointed or I just want to play. I'm a medium sized gal, just about 60 lbs.

I am a little shy at first, but I like people and other dogs and love to nibble on the foster cat’s ears. My house- training is awesome and I sleep all through the night in my crate!

I love to play outside, but nothing beats my spot beside the couch with some toys and bones to chew on and my foster family all around me!

Nena is fully vaccinated, has received a micro-chip, dewormer and Revolution. Apply for this beautiful gal by clicking the Adopt Me! icon right beside her photo. Thanks!

2 Years old Spayed Female Beaguiler Mix!

Hi there! I would like you to meet Pearle. This precious soul came into ARF's care a very shy, scared girl. With time, patience, treats and lots of love she has blossomed into the most loving, snuggly dog.

She wants nothing more than a human to love, to curl up with if you're sick, or to watch a movie together :)

Those soft brown eyes just can't be denied, her gentle pawing to continue her belly rub, her nose bumps on your arm or leg to coax just one more pet. She really does tug at everyone's heart strings whenever they meet her.

Pearle loves going for long walks, exploring all the smells a good trail has to offer. She is quite good on a short leash walk unless she happens to see a squirrel, but after the initial bound, she is easily redirected with a treat back to your side.

Her previous life was a little rough and she will always need a special touch, still a bit fearful of new things. Considering she wouldn't even come in the house the first 2 weeks in foster care, I'd say she has come a long way baby!

She's a definite house/lap dog now. Making up for lost
time I suppose! She does need a bit slower intros to new dogs but certainly does love a good wrestling or running match with a nice playmate once she is comfortable. And while this means she's not quite a dog park dog, if you have a nice, medium energy dog or friends that can get together for some occasional play time with their social dog, that would do her just fine.

Watch her play here!!

If you think you have the dog savvy heart for this precious girl, please click the Adopt Me! icon beside her picture above! She is up to date on all her vaccinations, micro-chipped, spayed and received Revolution and dewormer.

2 Years old Spayed Female "Apple of Your Eye" Mix!

Are you looking for a devoted friend? Someone who can tag along on your adventures, your car rides, your walks in the woods? A companion who thinks you're the best ever, and who is the apple of your eye in return? Then Stella may be just the gal you're looking for.

She loves her leash walks, pulling a bit in her excitement to be off and exploring, but listening well and settling in as she goes. Stella enjoys her runs off-leash too, where she has the chance to show off her recall skills. She loves to swim too!

Stella is a happy, active girl who loves to be busy when you're busy, and settle down beside you when you put your feet up at the end of the day. She is good with all ages of humans.

She is awesome in her crate and of course house training is simply perfect!

Stella looks to her humans for guidance and support in new situations where she isn't yet comfortable. With kindness and patience, Stella's forever home will help her to blossom.

She currently lives with multiple resident and foster dogs and is good with the felines at her 'grandma's house:) Stella loves to mother the new puppies fostered in her home, and would be a marvelous companion for a smaller dog.

She does require careful introductions to bigger and more boisterous doggie friends, as she can be a bit anxious about their intentions at first. Once she feels safe though, she loves to play, play, play. A glass-half-full kind of gal, Stella's curiosity and happy go lucky personality are sure to bring many smiles to the faces of her forever family.

Stella is spayed, fully vaccinated, micro-chipped and receives Revolution monthly. She's approximately 65lbs. To apply for this gorgeous gal, click Adopt me! beside her photo above!
