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

Annie Belle - ADOPTION PENDING is a beautiful, sweet, 7 year old black tri Aussie. She weighs about 50 pounds and is housebroken, crate-trained and knows her basic commands. Annie Belle walks well on a leash, has very good recall off leash, and rides well in a car. When her owner died she was taken to her local shelter and now she is looking for a new home! Annie Belle is a happy, easy-going girl who gets along great with dogs and cats, adults and children. She easily slipped into the rhythm of her foster family’s routine, letting others be the center of attention. She is pretty perky! Annie Belle really enjoys romping around with her dog pals and the children in her foster family, and then happily chills out when it is nap time. She loves to go for walks and is learning to appreciate toys. Annie Belle’s ideal home includes happy, loving adults looking for a family companion who will make them smile every day. Children and a dog pal or two would be great, and sharing a home with cats would be just fine with her! A fenced yard would be icing on the cake. Annie Belle is heartworm positive, and so it will be mid-August before she is available for adoption. Annie Belle is fostered near Raleigh, NC. NS3030
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
Walton is a very sweet 1 1/2 yr old red tri male with a tail! He seems to be good with children, reported good with cats and other dogs. Walton is heartworm positive and won't be available until the end of September. More information once we get to know him better. Walton is fostered in Callahan, FL NSXXXX
Cute Mattey - ADOPTION PENDING is as sweet as she looks. This blue merle Aussie mix is 2-3 years old, weighs 44 pounds and has the most beautiful ice blue eyes. We just picked her up so we have much to learn, but she is described as calm and gentle, she knows her basic commands and she rides quietly in the car. We also know that little Mattey is heartworm positive, and so she will not be available for adoption until late September. We will post an update soon! Mattey is fostered in Harrisburg, NC. NSXXXX
Dexxter is a handsome purebred black bi Aussie in need of a new home. He is about 2 ½ years old, a bit thin at 52 pounds, housebroken and crate-trained. Dexxter is learning his basic commands and his leash-walking skills are starting to improve – he is just so curious about everything and easily distracted during his walks!
Dexxter is a very playful guy who loves all people and all dogs of all sizes. He absolutely loves a good game of chase with another dog, loves his squeaky toys and loves to fetch tennis balls – his perfect day is eat, play, play, sleep, play, play, eat, sleep, you get the picture. We would describe him as a high energy guy with an off switch, who loves to settle in with his people when playtime is over. He has not been cat tested.
The ideal home for Dexxter includes an active person or family who will continue his training and make him a part of their active lifestyle. Another playful dog and a fenced yard would be amazing. If Dexxter sounds like your kind of guy please apply today!
Dexxter is fostered in Carrollton, GA.

Shyla is an adorable blue merle mini female weighing approx. 30 lbs. Shyla is a very sweet, submissive girl who is doing wonderfully in her foster home. Her foster mom describes her as such, "She is adorable...sweet, velcro, licker, lap dog......she is submissive so no issues with the other dogs. Lots of energy." Now for the sad news, Shyla was hit by a car and taken to the emergency clinic where it was determined she had a broken scapula. Her owner could not afford the treatment so turned her over to the clinic, that's when they contacted us. We took her to our vet who says 6 weeks of crate rest and then re-evaluate. We believe she'll be just fine! Shyla is fostered in Melbourne, FL NS3110
Shaylor is a stunning blue merle male. He is 9 yrs old and approx. 55 lbs. He needs to be neutered and his coat is a mess so he'll be getting a good grooming (may need to be shaved down a bit)! Shaylor has been an outside dog his whole life but is brought into the house during very cold weather and storms. He crate very nicely and walks great on a leash. He lived with two other dogs so we believe he'll be good with dogs. His owner has 4 cats and he just wants to play with them. (cats were not having any part of that). We'll know more once he's in foster care. Shaylor will be fostered in Apopka, FL NSXXXX
Charles (Charlie) is a BIG boy, weighing in at 85 lbs. He's a good looking black tri pup, I say pup because he's only a year old! Charles is house and crate trained. Charles does well with everyone and everything! Good with men, women, children, dogs, and cats. He needs some training, jumps on you out of excitement and pulls on the leash. He's sort of a bull in a china shop but with a little training and guidance he'll turn out to be a super guy! Charles will be fostered in Orlando, FL NSXXXX
Barbie Baby NS2719
Bang Baby NSXXXX
Boom Baby NS2720
Puppy Alert! We are delighted to introduce you to these 4 seriously cute Aussie mix puppies! They were dumped without their mom at the front door of a shelter in South Carolina, and so we have no idea what other breed is in the mix. Barbie Baby (female), Bing Baby (male), Bang Baby (male) and Boom Baby (male) The puppies are fostered in Bonneau, SC and Sanford, NC.
Traynor is an amazing little Aussie mix in search of a new home. He is about 10 years old, a blue merle mini who weighs just 25 pounds. Traynor was picked up as a stray by animal control after a life of serious neglect. He was a mess! They knew they picked up a special little guy though, called us, and we can now share him with you!
Traynor has less-than-perfect hearing and vision, but it is good enough that he can hear loud noises and has never bumped into anything. He also has a bit of a wobble to his gait and so he walks like a “drunken sailor”. We have no way of knowing the cause except that we have treated him for a chronic ear infection and he still wobbles. He can climb stairs but his unsteady gait makes it hard for him to navigate going down a set of stairs. Traynor is also heartworm positive, but he is in the middle of his treatment and will be finished in October.
So what makes Traynor so special? Despite a really rough life, this little optimist has never met a stranger – person, dog or cat. He LOVES everyone, wakes up happy every day and finds everything and everyone to be incredibly interesting and fun. He is a Velcro guy who will stick by your side, and stick to your hand as long as you will pet him! Traynor can’t jump in a car, but if you give him a boost you will find that he is the perfect rider – he loves it. His vision and hearing are not good enough for him to play fetch or learn commands. He has great house manners but we are still working on housebreaking. He crates fine and sleeps well through the night.
Traynor’s ideal home is one with people who have the time, space and love to share with this happy little guy. Another dog or dogs of any size would be great as he loves being part of a pack. In exchange for love, a comfy bed, good food, limited stairs, and an occasional ride in the car he will make you smile every day. Sound like your kind of dog? Traynor will be available in October and you can apply for him today! He is fostered in Johnston, SC.

Puppy alert! Young Colt is the cutest 4 month old purebred Aussie ever! Sweet, playful, weighing just over 30 pounds, this little black bi with no tail is mostly black with a bit of white on his chest and white tipped toes. Young Colt is a healthy little guy looking for playmates, a fenced yard, some basic training and of course fun! Young Colt is fostered in Dahlonega, GA. NS3127
Frankie B is a friendly, gentle purebred Aussie looking for a new home. This sweet red tri with a little nub for a tail is about 5 years old and weighs 42 pounds. Frankie B is housebroken, crate-trained, walks nicely on a leash and loves to ride in the car.
Frankie B LOVES people of all ages and will stand or sit next to you for as long as you have the time to give her your attention! She is fine with other dogs but does not really play with them. She also completely ignores cats, even when they are playing right next to her. Frankie B is a firm believer in peaceful coexistence!
We have no idea how Frankie B spent the first 5 years of her life, but everything that other dogs may take for granted is new to her, and a bit scary until she is used to it. Whether it is a new type of floor, a new bowl, a new room, a new set of stairs, she needs more time than other dogs to get used to her surroundings.
The ideal home for Frankie B is with a person or family who will be patient with her while she learns about the world. A fenced yard would be helpful but not required and a dog pal or cats would be just fine. With the right mix of patience and love you will be rewarded with many years of quiet, friendly, gentle companionship.
Looking for a sweet Frankie B? Apply today! She is fostered in Mt. Pleasant, SC.
Apply here for her. NS3111
Little Miss Bow is an adorable 5 yr old, 28 lbs sweetheart! Bow is good with adults, other dogs and children, we aren't sure about cats. She can be a little shy with dogs until she gets to know them. She likes to play ball and go running with you, she's great in the car. Bow is afraid of thunderstorms, she's not destructive but will find her safe place under the bed. She does have lots of energy and needs an outlet, who knows she might like agility or running along side of you on your bicycle! Bow is fostered in Thonotosassa, FL NS3128
Bing Baby is looking for a family to love! This little cutie is an 8 week old blue merle Aussie mix who weighs in at just 8 pounds. He has a tail and one of his eyes is half blue.
Bing Baby is a confident little guy who absolutely loves people, including very small children. He also loves all dogs and is just fine with cats – no cat chaser here! His typical day? Wake, eat, poop, pee, play, nap, repeat it all again – a fun, healthy little puppy.
Bing Baby would do best with a family who wants to add a puppy to their home, who is willing to get him started in some basic training, maybe even a puppy class, and who will enjoy watching this cute puppy grow into a handsome, happy boy.
Sound like your definition of fun?
Bing Baby is fostered in Sanford, NC.
