Vito is a 3 year old (4 in November) Red Merle Aussie who is a neutered male. He is 60# of pure love and Velcro! He is current on his HW prevention, vaccines, worming and flea treatment. He LOVES to go on walks but does pull a bit for the first few minutes. He is house broken and crate trained but does not need to be crated either at night or while alone in the house. He has always been a perfect gentleman when he has had to be alone here in his foster home. 

 Vito loves to carry his ball around but is just learning the whole aspect of retrieving it when thrown. He is getting it though! I think Vito would prefer to be the only dog or maybe just one other brother/sister in the household. The multiple dogs at his foster home makes him a bit nervous. Cats or small animals are not recommended to be with Vito. He is medium energy, loves treats and is super intelligent! He knows sit, down, shake, other paw shake and spins. 

This is a wonderful dog who has typical Aussie characteristics. He simply wants love and to follow you around as you go about your day!!  

He is fostered south east of Columbus, OH

Yukon is a 10 month old male blue merle. He is just over 40 pounds. Yukon can be a little shy but loves people and bonds very quickly. He loves toys and chews. He loves laying in the kiddie pool and is very active.

Yukon has been good with cats and great with other dogs. He can be a bit bossy, normal for a teenager. He loves running in the yard and appreciates having doggie friends. He is medium to high energy and very Velcro. He is crate trained and has not had accidents in his foster home. He walks ok on leash but can slip his collar easily if he gets nervous. His foster home uses a martingale collar to prevent escaping. He has done well with children and adults. He doesn't always want people around his toys and chews, so we recommend children over 10 years old but will consider younger children on a case by case basis.

Yukon is very athletic and could easily escape a 4 foot fence. He doesn't show much interest in doing this but we know he is very capable. We recommend he be supervised outside, 6 foot fence preferred. 

Yukon is fostered in Wichita, KS.

Jack Skellington

Jack Skellington  is a blue merle male who is about 1.5 years old. He was given up when his family needed to move and couldn't take him along. Jack Skellington  is a sweet, rambunctious boy. He is a little unaware of his size. He loves to be with his people and adores children. Jack Skellington  is great with other dogs, cats are unknown but he seems to be lower prey drive. He loves his toys and chews.

Jack Skellington  is a medium level energy Aussie. He doesn't play fetch but likes to play in general. When he is with other dogs he loves to run so he needs to be with other dogs that won't be bothered by this. 
Jack Skellington  is crate trained but is still young as far as Aussies go. We recommend continuing with is crate training for the time being. He does need a fenced in yard so that he can run. He loves running full speed. He doesn't guard his things but he does mouth when he plays. He does not use pressure and is gentle. We are working with him on reducing this behavior. Jack Skellington is a sweet, well rounded boy. 

Jack Skellington is fostered in Wichita, KS.
