When Tinsley arrived in her foster home she was very sad for several weeks as she has lost her owner and her schnauzer buddy. She has since blossomed in to a sweet loving dog and made herself right at home in her foster home.

Her coat is medium to short and easily cared for and she loves to be brushed. She is heartworm negative and on monthly heartworm preventative and up to date on her shots.
Tinsley is extremely sweet and patient with the 3 other dogs in the home. She has not been cat tested and loves all people young and old. She is very friendly and she doesn't mind being handled. Tinsley loves to lay on the couch and be petted. She is a Velcro girl but not overly needy. She has a very good recall, sits on command and gives her paw.

Kubby is a red Merle male (n) mini aussie, who needs to lose a bit of weight. He should weigh about 18 lbs, but is 28 right now so he'll be getting lots of exercise and a low fat diet. Kubby is good with all dogs, and loves everyone, even strangers. He plays well in the yard with all the other dogs, but tires easily because of his weight. We know he has had a sad past because the shelter had to cut an imbedded harness off of him, as well as cut a lot of his coat off too. Even still, he loves everyone and is not a barker; we are learning more about him every day. He rides well in the car, sleeps on a doggie bed, and is crate trained. Kubby knows "sit" and is very reliable with "come here". He'd love to get a new life and family. So put in your application for this great dog!
