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

He would do best in a fenced yard.  Bullet is being fostered in Versailles, KY.  NS 2027

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.  She did great with a bath and is  good with other dogs but likes a little more space when lying down.  She 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. 

She is located in Cincinnati, OH.

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.

Lucille Ball

This is Lucille Ball. She is not an Aussie, but she is here with us nonetheless. We think she may be a mix of many breeds, including Beagle and Shepherd. She is a nice medium size, about 45lbs and she is spayed. We think she is about 6 years old.

Lucille Ball is a very quiet mellow girl. She likes to lay on her dog bed (she does not get on the furniture) and receive belly rubs and snacks. She is housebroken and does not chew things. She is also very quiet in that she is not a barker. The foster home has only heard her bark once since she has been there!
She was not feeling well when she first got here, she was even more quiet not very happy. She is much happier now, but still pretty low energy.  She is perfect for someone who wants a quiet easy companion!

Lucille Ball is doing better with the foster home’s dogs, she did not like them when she first got there. She would snarl at them every time she saw them, she is being more polite now however she is still not really liking them, just tolerating them. We don't think she would appreciate a home with high energy in-your-face type dogs.

Lucille Ball is fostered in Kentucky.  Apply here for her.  NS 2209
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. Stay tuned for further updates.  NS 2221
Ophelia is a beautiful female black tri.  She is a bit shy at first but warms up nicely. She is about 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 years of age and has no tail.  She weighs about 40 lbs. and is learning how to leash walk better.  She loves to be with Hamlet and seems to be okay around other dogs. She is being fostered in the heartland.  Stay tuned for future updates.  NS 2222
