UPDATE: Jack now has a lovely foster home and will be joining us next week, YAAY! Thanks so much to everyone who offered to help this little guy, we'll keep you posted about him 🐶💕
Poor Jack has found himself in the pound through no fault of his own. We currently have no foster places for him and so are urgently looking for a foster home, foster to adopt or forever home for Jack in the Auckland area.
Jack absolutely loves people and can't get enough cuddles and attention. He has been good with the other dogs he has met in the pound and LOVES to play. He's very food focused too which will be a big help with training him.
We know a little of his background and that he lived with children and was great with them. He was kept in a backyard during the day and the neighbours said he wasn't a barker. He hasn't met any cats so we don't know how he would respond to them.
Jack is a year old, is Staffy x Labrador and is the size of a largeish Staffy.
If you can help us to help Jack please get in touch at email@example.com thank you! ... See MoreSee Less
Jack has settled in wonderfully well and is now looking for a new home, he’s the most lovely affectionate little black bear cub. More photos of him can be found on our Instagram page @aran_rescue

Introducing Suzy - LOCATED IN THE MANAWATU AREA.
Suzy is a labrador X staffy. She is a nice friendly young dog, just 12 months of age. Suzy is now in a foster home waiting for a forever home. This pup loves people and older kids (she is too boisterous for younger children). Suzy is a high energy dog who needs plenty of exercise. She is not suitable for a home with small fluffies, cats or livestock.
A home with other dogs of her own size for company, or someone home a lot is best for Suzy, she will not thrive if left home alone all day while her people work. Secure fencing and gates are needed for ARAN dogs, and a home visit/property check is required.
WE ARE VERY GRATEFUL TO CATHERINE HOLMES PHOTOGRAPHY PALMERSTON NORTH, FOR THE GORGEOUS PORTRAITS OF SUZY. ... See MoreSee Less
WOW she’s beautiful 💖
Great images -- black dogs are so hard to photograph. I see what Catherine's done here, I'll try that myself!
Shaylee she looks like pupz
Hope you get a loving, indoor, forever home soon Suzy. Best wishes. P.Lee
Absolutely nothing beats a Staffy smile - well OK, maybe Staffy snuggles do.
This is Ruby who is waiting for her forever family to come and meet her. She is being fostered by a very experienced foster family who have a small child, other dogs, cats and farm animals.
Ruby is about a year old and has done well adapting to her new life, considering she didn't really know anything when she arrived.
We would prefer an owner who has had dogs before, and someone who is committed to giving her regular exercise (she likes to run!) and continue her training.
Ruby is located in Bulls. If you would like to meet her please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org ... See MoreSee Less
Bodie's twin!!! We adopted him from you nearly 2 years ago

This is Carly, a beautiful girl who came to us for rehoming several weeks ago now. She has not had one single person come to visit her, and she would love to be in her own home for Christmas.
She is around 18 weeks of age now and has been fostered with a very experienced family who has given her an excellent grounding in all the skills she needs to be a wonderful family member.
Carly is located in Taranaki and has been fostered with other dogs, children and cats. She would like to be in a family where she has some day time company, and will need a fenced property.
Please email us at email@example.com if you would like to meet her. ... See MoreSee Less

He would need a urgent foster home without cats and people time.
Please help us help this little man.

Thankyou all for your kind comments and offers. If you can help this man please post or PM us. He is in limbo sadly and we would so love to help him.
Can't help foster because of the cats, but can help with transport through central NI if needed.
I can help transport him somewhere if needed 💓
I can’t help foster as I have cats but iv shared for you! Hope you find a home soon! My rescue pup hated my cats at the start but eventually got there with excessive training from us!
Oh my he looks a lot like my rescue dog from Wanganui way who came as an incredibly nervous and malnourished dumped dog who now with patience and kindness is the BEST dog ever. I sincerely hope someone will be there for him. Sadly I’m unable to help as I have a cat
We can take him temporarily to get him out of the vets x
Thank you for saving this beautiful soul♥️while it may not be ideal for him to be crated at the moment he is safe and warm and in a loving environment. The alternative doesn’t bear thinking about😔God bless♥️
Well done you once again 😃
Please help him
I wish 😭
How old is he ? Ok with other dogs ?
Aww poor boy, wish I could help 💔
I will foster him....I’m in Taumarunui
Gary K Foster
I am sure HUHA would help!
Not sure if you'll know but would he get on with a 9wk old Male pup?
Does he eat cats or just Hassel them??
Oh no he’s come so far to lose it now 😭😭😭
Eileen Donovan foster mom ??
Kasmira Graham Thomas Graham he needs a fosterer 🤞💖

So one of our dogs is in the running for Northland Dog of the Year! She's in the top ten and needs votes to get to the number one spot, so please please vote for her 🙂🙏
We reckon she absolutely deserves to win, Luna originally came from a Far North pound, she was just a little dot when we got her and had had a pretty rough ride already. She ran a couple of our fosterers ragged lol, she was a bit naughty given half a chance but such a sweetheart. She always loved kids and at one point would attempt escape missions so she could sit next to the school fence and smooch up to the children.
Just read the story of why she was nominated, we are so proud of her!
To vote for Luna please go to The Hits Northland's Facebook page, look for Luna's photo and LIKE it. Voting closes on Sunday.
Thank you 🐶💕
www.facebook.com/thehitsnorthland/photos/a.2841572029194838/2841572585861449/?type=3&theaterLuna: We found Luna on-line through Aran Animal Rescue, travelling to Waiuku last year to get her. She was two years old then and is the most loving, friendly and clever dog. Not long after that something happened - one night she visited my parent’s bedroom, in an agitated state. Mum got up to see what was wrong, finding the bedroom door to my sister’s room open and she had fallen out of bed – she has cerebral palsy so wasn’t able to get back up and into bed herself. It was then we realised we had a very special dog. ... See MoreSee Less
Done and good luck to this gorgeous girl from fellow Aran Animal Rescue NZ cutie Jhett (aka Cory).
ohhh gorgeous girl, you found your feet, and your fabulous family. forever stolen a big piece of my heart miss ruby tuesday - still i’m gonna miss you 💕
She looks a lot like our Ruby / Arya thought they might be sisters but Arya is only just coming up 1year old. She’s doing very well and her pink nose spots are almost completely black now. She won a few ribbons with Mr 6 at his school pet day. 3rd for tricks and trivia, 4th for on lead heel walking and participated in the obstacle course but it was her first time and she got very distracted by her new doggy friends.
