JOE IS CURRENTLY LOCATED IN WHANGANUI. We do not send dogs around the country except in special circumstances, so we prefer that you be able to visit Joe in Whanganui. Please no South Island applications unless you are able to come to Whanganui.!

Joe is a pure bred Labrador. He is 2.5 years old and in the pound. He is a cheerful exhuberant and friendly dog who has lived with a cat and children in a previous home, however there is no guarantee he will necessarily like any cat. He is in the pound through no fault of his.

Joe will be de-sexed, vaccinated, microchipped and registered and up to date with flea/worm treatments. There is an adoption fee of $300 to contribute towards these costs. This is heavily subsidised for you and represents approximately half of what it would cost you normally.

Joe’s new home must have a safe secure place for him to be while you are out. ARAN dogs cannot be chained to kennels or left for very long periods home alone. All ARAN dogs must sleep indoors.

Our adoptions start with a two week trial period, to make sure the dog is a good fit for you. If things don’t work out they return to their foster home.

The first step if you are interested in adopting is to fill out an online adoption application which you can do here:
