Senorita Lacy is a small, sweet red and white female Aussie that is about 12 years old. She is a bit overweight, at 38 pounds but FULL of personality. Senorita Lacy is engaging and friendly with everyone she meets and loves being with her people. She is generally quiet and calm but loves going for walks on and off leash. Senorita Lacy loves the water and will swim anywhere.
Senorita Lacy is great with cats and learning to live with house rabbits. She pays little attention to chickens and goats. Senorita Lacy gets along well with all dogs in the house and is very patient with her very active 1 year old foster brother. Senorita Lacy enjoys her walks but is very content to lie at your feet. When she first arrived at her foster home she was high on the velcro scale with her foster mom but has become more independent over time. Senorita Lacy is completely housebroken. She is very good on and off leash. She has been great with adults and teenagers and large groups of people but has not been exposed to younger children as of yet.
She is fostered in Foster, RI. Apply here for her. NS 1890
Jiggs is a gentle 63 lb. red merle mix who is about 4 years old. Jiggs happily greets you if you've been out and loves nothing more than to settle in and lie near his people and relax. He also enjoys meeting new people of all sorts. Jiggs is solidly housebroken. Jiggs loves riding in the car. He is in good health and UTD on all his shots.
He will go in a crate but there is no need to crate him. He is great around the house and does not counter surf or get into the trash. Jiggs happily chews bones and antlers. He is food motivated and could be taught a whole range of skills by someone who took the time to help him understand what is being asked of him. Jiggs is inquisitive and will explore and investigate everything. He is put off by loud noises (thunder, fireworks, etc.)
Jiggs is being fostered in RI. Apply here to meet him. NS 1889
Biggs is a black bi male approx 2 yrs old and 50lbs. He is really just a big puppy. Biggs is a silly, smart dog with lots of potential. He is working on learning the basics and is getting the hang of sit and come. He is housebroke and crate trained although not fond of the crate. He picked up the doggie doors despite initially being scared of them. Biggs is still a little timid and jumpy of sudden movements and loud noises and a little nervous in storms. Biggs gets along really well with other dogs, bigger and smaller. He should probably be in a home with at least one other dog. Biggs has never shown any signs of aggression whatsoever, if one of the dogs growls he just walks (actually runs) away.

He walks pretty good on a leash and loves to run in the yard checking things out, chasing things and playing with the other dogs in his foster home. Biggs also loves attention and his people and needs a home where he will not be left alone for extended periods of time. Biggs has recently discovered toys and enjoys squeaky and chew toys.
Jiggs has shown no indication of resource guarding. He enjoys walks and walks nicely on an 'easy walk' harness, though he still pulls a bit if walked on his collar.
Jiggs enjoys romping in the yard but does not have much recall right now so a yard with a fence would be suggested. Due to his size a home with older children is recommended. While Jiggs plays nicely with his foster brothers, he is VERY selective in who he accepts. For this reason we think Jiggs would do best as an only dog in a dog savvy home. Jiggs tends to herd cats (even dog savvy cats), nipping at their backside, so no cats for Jiggs!
