Meet Aris

Saved from death at the pound, Aris was rescued with his brother Rega.From the initial excitement of coming to our house Aris has settled well, he hardly barks, doing a good job of chasing off the magpies (silently) He is very well behaved in the car, he gets along well with other dogs of all shapes and sizes, and loves children. He is quite wary of new people, he keeps his distance and wags his tail. He might try coming close for a pat or two but usually leaves it to his brother to do the initial introductions. He will do very well being an only dog or a companion to another. He takes his lead from Rega who came into care with him. He seems not to have basic training. Still resisting the sit unless positioned there, but is progressing. He will walk loose lead now but does not welcome being taken out. He shows signs of excitement when he sees the lead but will run away rather than come willingly to have it clipped to his collar. He is improving but he will need patience in this regard.

Aris was adopted on 03 April 2011 after 4 weeks in foster care
