More About Us
An active family with no other dogs looking for a warm, affectionate and fun loving pair would be a great match for this duo. They enjoy plenty of space, visits to the beach and bush adventures.
They are ok for full time workers (9am-5pm) as long as they are a central focus when people are home.
As the dogs are people orientated they need to be part of family activities.
They will not suit homes with residents that are very young, frail, elderly, renters or time poor.
Medium - playful and moderately active (can miss a daily walk). They obviously love as much attention as they can get but won't complain if their family are busy from time to time.
When ON a lead ...
When OFF a lead ...
Both love a good run and are playful and fun loving, especially with each other.
They are accustomed to having the freedom of beaches or open space parks and if supervised are not usually a problem, returning when called.
Type of Yard Required
Large suburban block or semi rural property that is interesting and secure. They are not destructive or escape artists.
Tolerance to Being Alone During the Day
Both will alert to something strange but are not currently nuisance barkers.
Ned and Foxy will suit any of the following:
Likes, Dislikes, Fears, Endearments and Quirks
Both dogs are very easily pleased and low-maintenance. They will make wonderful companions for 'dog focused' owners and are sweet and gentle around kids.
Both dogs have their endearing quirks. Ned likes to do 'number 2s'' on the concrete if it's raining (bit of a princess) and doesn't like getting his feet wet. Foxy, who is normally sweet and gentle, can be bossy around smaller dogs and the cats.
They like being inside during thunderstorms. They can sometimes take time to warm to new people but this nervousness eases after a few days.
They currently live with cats but they are always kept separated.
