London

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

Bo Diddly is an active and fun young guy just 7 months old, a red tri who at 52 pounds is on the larger side.  As you can see from his photo, he's a funny boy who is interested in everything.  He was just a bit more energetic than his first family was expecting so that's why he is in rescue.  He is loving life at his foster home with lots of other dogs to play with, and is pretty good on leash and reliable in the house.  He is fostered in Elizabethtown KY   NS 2831

Riggsaby

Riggs, also known as BooBoo, is a 3 yr old red tri male, he is a love bug, with all humans; however, absolutely no cats.  

He is crate trained, house broken, knows, sit, come, down, and is house safe.  He is actually the perfect dog, but needs an experienced handler, because he has trouble meeting some dogs.  He has successfully lived with 7 other dogs in foster care, but had to meet them slowly.  He does not have good meeting skills, and needs someone who can work with this. Once introduced, he will play and have a great time.

He requires a physical fence, no electric, and a savvy owner.  With that set up you'll have many a great day cuddling with this wonderful dog!

He is fostered in Maineville, Ohio.

Joseph

AKA Joey is an 8 month old, smaller blue merle neutered male,  His foster mom says Joey is a super sweet laid back boy. He's affectionate and cuddly - loves to give kisses. Joey loves everyone he meets. In his early months as a young pup, Joey was discouraged from meeting dogs and cats. Now he meets dogs all the time and loves them. He plays, he wrestles, he chases! He had no idea that dog pals could be so much fun!

Joey needs a home with a little more dog experience than some.  Joey was loved but mishandled in his original home. Unfortunately they let their fear of dogs project on Joey, Once he got into rescue, we quickly realized his giant bark and over excitement upon meeting dogs stemmed from his inability to actually get closer and meet them. (He was nearly 6 months old before he was allowed to actually meet another dog.) His trainer said he was elated to finally sniff and get near another dog. He likes every dog he meets and is ready to play!

His most endearing quality, next to those soulful eyes, is his gentle affection for everyone he meets. He is one of the greatest loves you'll ever meet.  He requires a physical fence, no electric, and a NO cat home.  We know he is pretty, but he will require experience - no exceptions.  He is fostered in Maineville, Ohio.
