Tiny Baxter

Tiny Baxter is small at 13 lbs.  He loves to play with dogs that are smaller than he is. He is a bit fearful of larger dogs. He needs a very patient and loving home as he came from a hoarding situation and is doing well in foster care but will need to bond to his new family. 

A confident other dog would be great, but bonding to a person or 2 would be right up his alley. He eats well, is on Prozac once a day. Housebroken, crate trained, walks well on leash. A physical fence is preferred, due to being skittish in new situations. 

 He is worth the investment in time you will give. The others we have taken from this situation are doing well. Please put in your application. He is located near Dayton Ohio. Please contact alicia.heidorn@gmail.com for more info.  

Apply here for him.  NS3524

Meet Dune, he’s a 1 yr old very active young dog (DOB 7/25/21) who has a great disposition. He is quIck to learn and friendly with everyone. He needs lots of room to run and a fenced yard. He has lived in a house and is housebroken and crate trained. He needs to learn your house rules, and will need a lot of leash work, which we have started.

Barkly is a 3 month old red tri Aussie. He's about 29lbs and the biggest of his 3 brothers. Barkly is still shy of humans but loves other dogs. He has discovered his voice and likes to bark when he's first greeted and playing.

Barkly occasionally chases the cats but has not show any signs of aggression. He loves to play with his siblings and other dogs. Barkly is a high energy and low velcro. He does not have any health issues and is still working on being housebroken. Barkly has only met adults and has been fine with them, just shy.
Barkly would need a fenced in yard or to be on a leash when outside with supervision as he does not have a recall. Barkly does take awhile to warm up but has a lot of potential and has come so far already.

Barkly is fostered in Salem, WI
