London is an 8-9 yr old male black tri aussie.  He is a tall boy that weighs about 60 lbs.  He is good with other dogs, will alarm bark, but is good with strangers.

He is very strong, and we are working on leash manners, but he is great off lead.  He comes when called and knows sit.  He is crate and kennel trained.  He just wants to hang out.  He is up to date on all shots and neutered, and likes human attention. 

He has had a hard life, and was found wandering the streets, and an older gentleman took him to try to find his owner, but no one claimed him.  He'd love to spend his remaining years with you. 

London is located in Maineville, OH. 

Apply here for him.  NS 1943

A beautiful black tri girl who has beautiful copper points and not the usual tan color.  She is about 2 years of age and weighs 31 pounds.
She had a rough start to life and lived the first part of her life chained to a tree.  She is medium energy with the desire to just be close to her people and learning a lot about her new world and her new found freedom.  Her house manners are very good and she is accepting her four legged foster siblings pretty well.  She takes correction well with a firm NO and bonds quickly.  She especially loves belly rubs!  She loves bones and bully sticks but has no interest in a ball or frisbee at this time.  She has done well around horses and cattle but will chase a cat.
She is a bit uncertain about certain new scenarios but comes around quickly (probably due to her lack of exposure to a big world).  She is learning her manners, and is crate trained and housebroken.  She has some Aussie reserve that we are working with so a calmer home would be somewhat better for her. There are no health concerns.

Tarabelle is fostered in the Heartland.                                         Apply here for her.  NS2579

Rover is 5 years old and about 60 pounds with long, silky white fur with brown patches and a full fluffy tail.  He is just learning all about life with people and living in a house. You see, he lived with an elderly owner who kept him in an outside kennel his whole life.  And while she loved him, she was also afraid he would knock her over, so she never took him out of his kennel. 

Everything is new, exciting and sometimes scary, but he is really enjoying learning about life with his foster dad and his foster siblings. Each day his leash skills improve and he loves going for walks with the crew. He wags his tail constantly, excitedly exploring.

Redford is a very handsome neutered male red-bi. He's about 18mos old weighing in at 41 lbs. Redford loves every person he meets. There's no mistaking his enthusiastic hello.

Right now Redford is a diamond in the rough and would benefit from some obedience training. He has a strong curiosity about everything.
