Penuche is an adorable low rider, she is an aussie/corgi/?? mix. We pulled her mother a few months ago, Wiglet, who was a corgi/aussie mix (dad was aussie/mom was corgi). Penuche is around 1 1/2 yrs old. She is very terrified of people as she was pretty much ingnored and left to her own devices. She does well with other dogs and is trying to play with the foster's dogs! Her foster parents are working with her and she seems to be doing better with the husband (her former owner was a woman). We will update when we have more. She is fostered in Thonotasassa, FL NS2745
Kozmo is 5 yrs old, he's an Aussie/Border Collie cross. Kozmo is a bigger boy, weighing in at 70 lbs.
He is fostered in a home with 2 other dogs; he's having a blast with one but the other is deaf/blind and pushy, something Kozmo isn't appreciating.
According to his previous owner he's good with men/women/children and cats (foster doesn't have cats). He is still new to us so more info as we get to know him. Kozmo is fostered in Tampa, FL NS2938
BearBear came in as a stray from a local shelter; he's pretty timid but we can tell he'll come around. He's already trusting his foster parents and is acclimating into the pack (2 other dogs). Shelter says he's about 4 but we feel he may be a bit older. BearBear was so matted the shelter couldn't even tell if he was neutered or not. Thankfully they had him shaved down and bathed for us and found that he is neutered!! He has been vetted all except a heartworm test. Right now BearBear is just taking it easy. He's not thrilled with a leash so his foster home is just letting him drag it around and be chill. They will start working with him once he's decompressed. We think he's going to be a sweet heart of a Bear! BearBear is fostered in Ormond Beach, FL NSXXXX
Breeze - ADOPTION PENDING is a cute little 3 yr old mini approx 23lbs. Breeze won't be available for awhile, she's a bit too afraid of people right now so needs some work to learn people aren't her enemy. She needs to learn to be a dog! We will place her in the available section when she's ready. NSXXXX
Cross is a 6 yr. old Red Aussie Mix. She is overweight at 72 lbs. but her Foster Family is working on getting that down. She is a very, very sweet dog but at this time is very afraid of almost everything. She is good with the foster family's dog and good with their cat. She is fairly low energy but loves to go on walks so that is helping with getting the weight off. She walks well on a leash. She is very Velcro! She does not leave her foster mom's side. She is very timid with men. She has not been tested with children. She is house broken.
Right now we are keeping Cross with her foster family until she becomes a little more adjusted. She is afraid of new introductions but that is getting better! Once she has adjusted she will be available for adoption. Cross is fostered in Powder Springs, GA. NS3545
Wills - ADOPTION PENDING
Meet Wills, a 2 yr old 33 lbs mini male who only has 3 legs. Wills was attacked by a pitbull who tried to pull him through the fence, the after math was a badly broken front leg and multiple lacerations on both front legs that became infected. The vet wasn't sure she could save both legs, the broken leg ended up being amputated. Through all of this he was the perfect patient, never a cross word even while he was in such pain. He is doing really well now and adjusting to his situation.
Wills loves to be petted, he loves to lay with you and will roll on his back for belly rubs. He is house trained, does not care for the crate but really doesn't need to be crated. I suspect he'd be good with cats and children but he's not been tested with either. He may howl when you leave him home alone so no apartments. While he will need exercise, short, frequent walks and swimming would be very beneficial, and keeping him on the slimmer side is a must! Here is a great resource for 3 legged dog/cats
Wills is fostered in Apopka, FL.

Baz, also known as Sebastian, is a sweet and gentle soul. He is
almost 3 years old and weighs 37 pounds. At first, he is your typical
Aussie, a bit anxious around new people and pets, but he is very quick to warm up. Baz's energy level is medium and he needs a human that enjoys playtime and walks.
While outside Baz enjoys running and playing fetch but inside he is very calm and respects boundaries. He is great with other dogs and is curious and non-aggressive towards cats. Aussies love to herd so Baz would thrive in a home of adults and older children.
Baz loves everyone but he is a lady’s man and gravitates towards women. His Velcro tendencies are medium; he wants to be in the same room but does not need to be sitting on top of you.
He is housebroken, does well in his kennel but we are still working on his leash training and he gets a little timid. A fence is preferred
since we have done very little work with his recall.
Baz is fostered in Dallas, GA.
