K9 animal news

LOVELY Arya is a medium-sized dog who is looking for a new home. She is about two years old, so has plenty of energy and life in her.

She came into the kennels as one of a litter of puppies, accompanied by mum, Peggy. The others all found new homes very quickly, leaving poor Arya on her own.

Nevertheless, she is very good with the other dogs and soon made some new kennel mates. Although she is still young and very energetic, she has the potential to be a very-well-behaved dog.

Arya is attending weekly training classes, to learn basic obedience and other good-behaviour traits. She will require lots of exercise in her new home, and would, ideally, need one with space to run around. She is also very playful and loves a good cuddle!

She can be a bit timid at first, so will need time to get to know possible adopters, before being homed. After a short while, she is completely comfortable around new people. She is not the best of dogs with children, so we recommend she goes to a house without them!

If you think Arya would make the perfect companion for you, and you would like to offer her a second chance of a better life, why not come along to K9 and meet her? Or call us on 6676 38468, for more information.
