Goony is on a medical hold as of 5/17/22. He fractured his femur while trying to dig under the foster home's fence. He will be on surgery recovery for about 3-4 weeks. You may still submit an application for him during this time, so long as you are comfortable with a tentative adoption date closer to mid/late June.
Goony is a 3 month old Aussie/Pyrenees/Boxer mix. He is doing great with potty training and is nothing short of a people lover. He is very adventurous and loves to play outside. He gets along with the foster home's 2 dogs and cat, and plays nicely with their toddler. He is very curious on leash, which is typical for a puppy his age. He will do best in a home with a fenced in yard and another dog to keep him busy. A household without another dog can also be considered so long as the family lifestyle is active, and can keep up with his socialization and energy needs.

KY Kane is a soon to be 2 year old, neutered, and is a purebred Blue Merle. Kane is completely at ease in all aspects of household living. He is housetrained! Kane loves his foster home dogs and cat companions very much to play with. So bonus if you have a pet companion for him. He is at ease with children too. Although he is men shy at first, once he gets to know men he is ok. Kane is a large Aussie at 57# and very muscular, he requires daily walk/run, physical play time and mental stimulation. He enjoys going to the park with our Aussie and being able to run together in an enclosed area. Kane is very gentle, and a complete lovebug, and he likes to be brushed. His thick double coat will require weekly maintenance. His personality is easy going, and he's ready for whatever the daily adventure is. Kane walks well on the leash and of course does well in the car. He's a complete winner!!!
Great with other dogs and cats. He loves playing with his foster home dogs and playful cat, with all types of play. Kane would benefit greatly with a fun, playful dog companion.
His energy is medium normal for a soon to be two year old. Likes school age children, unknown about babies/toddlers. He is crate trained, however he is trustworthy to not need it, if you don?t want to crate. Kane likes to chew on safe antlers/bones/nylabones. He is a very easy dog to be with, and with other dogs. He walks well on his leash!! He squats to potty vs raises his leg. He eats twice per day, and has a snack. He enjoys brain games/puzzles/sniffy mat. Really likes walks at the lake for sniffy time. And very curious with wildlife/birds to watch.
It would be nice if Kane had a fenced in yard, but not a deal breaker, as long as he gets daily exercise. As stated before, he is shy to men at first, once he warms up to you, he's your bff. No health concerns.
Kane is fostered south of Pittsburgh, PA.

Brookie is a 33 pound 6 month old female black tri. Like most 6 month olds she is full of energy and curiosity for the world! She is also a very lovable little girl who wants to be near her owners at all times. She is a bit on the shy side and is still learning how to walk on the leash.
Brookie settles down nicely in her crate for naps and bedtime but will whimper a little first. So far she gets along nicely with the resident Aussies but has had a scuffle over food once or twice. She has not been cat tested but is you g enough she could learn to co-exist with them. No issues with kids, other dogs (off leash) or children.
It looks like Brookie did not have much training in her former life so she needs a family willing to put in the time to train her on what is good and bad behavior. She does not know any commands right now, but is responsive to being called and it is easy to get her attention. She does counter surf, jump, and climb all over you and the sofas but those are all very typical behaviors for a puppy and can be corrected.
This sweet girl has LOTS of love to give and would love to be adopted into a home that can give her all the love and attention she deserves.
