Trucker

Trucker is a black tri male mini-Aussie with a tail.  He is all of 16 lbs and very high energy.  He needs a serious agility home, he is one of the fastest dogs in the group, faster than some average sized Aussies.  Smart and fearless, can climb out of a 48" tall kennel, and can jump at least that high from a standstill.  He is getting crate trained, good with most other dogs, loves the car and all humans.  Can be a little nippy when he jumps, but we are working on that.  He is food motivated, and to keep him learning, we are working on tricks.


Trucker is located in Maineville,  OH.
Apply here to meet him. NS 1940

Gingko

Gingko is a love of a dog who should have a forever home, but was left in the shelter.  She is 8- 10 years young, and has a lot going for her. She is very healthy and is smaller at about 30lbs. She crates very well, is housebroken, did great with a bath, good with other dogs but likes a little more space when lying down, knows sit.

She is a little slow going up steps. Loves all humans of all ages, and does great on leash.  She is available for adoption with her fee donated by the foster home.  If you would like to do a great thing and give this little dog a forever home, she would love to meet you.  Contact aussie@aol.com  for more information.

She is located in Cincinnati, OH.  Apply here to meet her. NS 1985

Cyna

Meet Cyna, a red tri female who is 4 yrs. old.  We do not know why she lost her home, because she is about as perfect as you can get. She is house broken, crate and kennel trained, she comes when she is called, and knows: sit, down, speak, shake and heel. 

She was very good at the vet, just a little nervous.  She weighs 50 lbs. and is just an all around great dog. 

Please considering giving her a permanent home and make her a happy pup once again. 

She is fostered in Maineville, OH.
Apply here for her.  NS 1989

Kirty

Well if your looking for a toy aussie, Kirty is your man.  He is 2 yrs old, a bundle of energy and crate trained, house broken, and just sweet and fun. 

He is lots of dog in a tiny package.  He weighs in at 11.5 lbs.; knows sit, come, and kennel up. He is great with other dogs too.   We're working on the down command, but that's pretty low to the ground. 

He'd be a great apartment dog if you have a size limit. 

Consider giving Kirty a  Forever home.  He is fostered in Maineville, OH.

Apply here for him.  NS 1990
Jaccee, and her sister Jenjen, came to us in need of medical care.  They were overbred farm dogs in need of help.  They are both blossoming in foster care.  She is located in Maineville Ohio and will move to available as soon as she is ready to go.  NS 1987
Jenjen is a 2 yr old black tri female mix, about 30 lbs.  She is currently on medical hold until she and her sister (Jaccee) gain some weight and strength.  They are both very sweet, but were farm dogs who didn't know anything.  We are currently working with them.  She and her sister Jaccee are located in Maineville Ohio.  NS 1988
Rudolph

Rudolph is a red tri male with a flowing tail!  He is about 8 months old and just a delight.  He weighs about 40 pounds and loves to wag his tail and give play bows, ready to chase a ball or play with anyone!

He is house broken, crate trained and loves to ride in the car!  He plays nicely with the resident dogs and the other foster, Sugarplum Fairy.  He is not bothered by cats and  loves to watch the squirrels in the trees!  He loves to be with people, but is not a velcro boy.   Rudolph is a quick learner and is working on leash walking.  He loves to play with his toys and loves to play chase with his foster mom!

Rudolph does not counter surf and does not seem to have a high prey drive, but, if in his crate and another dog he does not know approaches, he will give a warning grrrr…but a quick tsk from his foster mom and no more of that.

He is enjoying his Christmas holidays in Kentucky but is ready to find his forever home…
