Hamlet is a beautiful black tri male.  He is a very happy dog who weighs about 40 lbs.  He does not have a tail and is improving his leash skills.  He is probably about 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 years old and has a medium high energy level.  He gets along well with other dogs and he and Ophelia arrived together.  He will be fostered in the heartland.

Meet Falcone!  He is a black tri male that is about 5 years old.  He is housebroken.  More to follow on this dog as he is pending medical evaluation.  He is fostered in Maineville, OH.  NS 2306

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

This beautiful boy is heartworm positive and will soon be completely heartworm free with proper treatment.  He will be adopted by his foster Mom upon completion of his treatment.  NS2278
There are some other great dogs in our program that are heartworm positive too, and we appreciate donations to help us cover the cost of their treatments.

Once treatments are completed they are completely healthy and available for adoption!

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
Sofie Mom - ADOPTED

Sofie is the mother of these pups and has a fabulous personality which we assume has been passed on to her adorable pups - they are very good natured!  She is 40 lbs. of delightful aussie, who loves everyone and is good with all dogs and people.  The pups have smaller paws and should be smaller in stature as adults.  They are ready to join your home!
Sophie's 5 month old puppies are ready for their forever homes!

Born on 12/28/15  Up to date on all shots
Big Boy, well socialized black brindle, male
Duce, funny pup, female
The pups are being fostered in Maineville and Cleveland, OH.  Apply here for them.

Riggsaby is a very sweet boy about 1-2 years old, who loves people and just wants to please you and be your companion. He is a dream on a leash and doesn't pull. He is reactive to other dogs at first, but has warmed up to his furry foster sibling over time. He would do best in a one dog family, but if the family has patience I think he will warm up to other furry siblings, as he has mine.

He LOVES belly rubs, and prefers sleeping on his back. When he is really happy, he makes the cutest squeaking sound! He also loves sleeping under things, whether it's the table, bed, etc. Being an Aussie, he is very active and loves running around. Doesn't seem to have much interest in toys, but the few times he's played with them, he has chosen a tennis ball.

He is very quick to learn and has been adjusting well to some basic training. One of his favorite things to do is give his owners kisses, as he is very loving.  He is crate tri aimed and housebroken, know sit.  He is fostered near Cincinnati, Ohio.

Apply here for him.  NS2590
Josie May

This sweet girl is Josie May,  She arrived into our foster program because her owner passed away.  She is a beautiful red merle who has been clipped by the groomer and will grow into her new coat nicely.  She is about 11 years old and gets along well with other dogs and even tolerates cats.  She is looking for a wonderful home because she has had a great home all her life!

She rides well in the car, is gentle when meeting a new person and weighs about 45-50 pounds.  She does not have a tail, but does have that cute little aussie bob! 

She will be fostered in the Heartland but can be moved to the Mid Atlantic and probably will be theere by the end of May give or take a few days!

Won’t you consider giving this loving gal a new home?

Apply here for her.  NS2451
