Jessa

Jessa is a 3-4 yr old red Merle female mini, who came to us from a local shelter after her family turned her in stating they did not have time for her. 

She is a delightful dog.  She is house broken, crate trained, knows, come, sit, down, go potty, and is pretty good on leash.  She loves riding in the car, and is good with most dogs.  She is bit pushy herself, so she is good with most dogs, but that occasional high alpha female may not be the best match. Jessa is NOT cat friendly; she is not trustworthy around a cat.   She would do best in a home with a male dog, and a physical fence, as she loves to chase the birds, squirrels and runs and tries to "catch" the thunder.  When she is interested in these things, she forgets to come when called.
She is as sweet as candy, loves all the people, never met a stranger, and loves her belly rubbed.  She would make a great family dog, who loves to play with a soccer ball.  

Jessa is being fostered in Maineville, OH.
Apply here to meet her. NS 1759

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.

Mia

Meet Mia, she is a very solid girl, about 60lbs and has a smooth coat. She seems to be about 1-2 years old. Mia is housebroken, knows “sit” and walks reasonably well on a leash. She is very enthusiastic and needs a little work on not jumping on people when she gets excited.

She is very Velcro and is quite content to park herself at your feet. She bonded to her foster mom almost instantly when she was brought home; she shadows her everywhere. She loves to squeeze under the desk and snooze while her foster mom is at the computer.

She gets along just fine with the dogs at her foster home but gets a little territorial of her “cave” under the desk and her bed and snarls at them if they try to get too close. This has not escalated past snarling.
She has gotten pretty good about going into her crate; she cannot be trusted not to counter or table surf if left unattended. Mia is not an excessive barker and loves going outside. Even though she is a Velcro dog, she does not get upset about being left alone.  She sleeps quietly all night on her bed on the floor next to her foster mom. Mia likes people right away and she really loved a visiting 9 year old child.
Mia is fostered in Bonnieville, KY.
