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

Tarabelle

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
Fred

Fred is a lovely 50 lb aussie with a tail.  He is neutered, and up to date on all shots. 

He likes all dogs  and people, and loves to ride in the car.  He would be an outstanding dog for nose work, search and rescue, and or barn hunt.  He LOVES to smell everything and follows the ground hogs trails in the yard. 

We are working on house breaking, and some commands and he catches on quite quickly.  He is great on leash.  Fill out your application today!

BB King


BB King is in constant motion, such a busy little guy. BB King weighs just under 40lbs., although he may grow a bit more. We think he is between 6 and 12 months old.


He is learning quickly. He crates well after a brief period of fussing. He is learning good social dog behavior, and how to play. Toys seem new to him.

BB King hasn't shown any interest in the resident cats.

He is being fostered in Central Kentucky.

Apply here for him.  NS2504
Carolyn is a smaller blue female that is about 28 lbs.  Currently she is VERY shy.  She will be available as her personality develops.  NS 2446

Princess Vickie

Princess Vickie is an 8 year old, blue merle spayed female who is about 67 lbs. She loves meeting people. Her big brown eyes are very trusting and will pull at your heart strings.

She gets on okay with other dogs and all the people she meets including children. Her energy level is medium high - she's a busy girl and likes to stick pretty close by her people. The Princess is up-to-date on all vaccinations, is HW negative and on HW preventive. She loves her toys and will play as long as you will.
Princess Vickie is terrified of thunderstorms, lightning, fireworks and gun shots. She would do best in a home with a yard fenced with a physical fence, not an e-fence. She would probably run away when scared by a storm, lightning or fireworks. She is on the chubby side and would benefit from regular exercise. Not much has been asked of Princess Vickie when it comes to obedience skills so she would do well with a family willing to teach some manners. She is well house trained though.

She is fostered in central Kentucky.                                        Apply here for him.  NS2481
Dack-Mar

Meet Dack-mar (now Jett!) She is a gorgeous, 2-year-old blue merle with blue eyes (one marbled) and a lovely coat. She does have a few special needs, as she was recently rescued from a bad hoarding situation with 20 other Aussies. She is sweet, petite, and oh-so-shy. We think she was not given much positive attention from humans before coming in to rescue. Despite her shyness, she bravely approaches new situations and tries to figure out the world around her. She has started to blossom in her foster home, although she is still very shy around her humans. She likes to keep
some distance, but is very curious and would prefer to stay within arms length of her human family.

Jett needs a loving and patient forever home with a family who will take time to let her grow into life as a pampered Aussie. She crates well, does not bark, is good (and submissive) with her rambunctious foster brothers and her 15-year-old foster sister (all Aussies). She is also sweet and kind to her foster cat. She is learning to walk well on lead and will respond well to positive training methods. Her potty training is also going very well. Jett will need a fenced yard in her new home, and we recommend that she not be placed with kids under 10, as their sudden movements may overwhelm her.

Won't you please consider adding her to your family? If you think you are the right person for her, send in your application. She is being fostered in Cincinnati, OH.

Apply here for her.  NS2445
