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
Chip is an 18 mo. old puppy with all a puppy's energy and enthusiasm. A bright red tri (though sun bleached) 45# dog with a full tail is a neutered but heartworm positive male. He is crate trained, rides well in a car and is pretty good on leash. Perfectly house trained, he gets along with young and old dogs, big or small. HIs current favorite activity is wrestling with a 60 pound boxer pup and his 70 pound 9 year old boxer buddy. Chip pays back the puppy for all he has done to previous foster dogs!
Chip is a bit mouthy so will do better with older children. He definitely needs an active canine companion and would benefit with a fenced yard where he can really work out the energy. In the house he wants to be a complete cuddler. He has a strong prey/herding drive and wants to herd or chase anything that moves. He should be leashed when out in public or that urge will kick in.
He will be available after Dec. 1.
Fostered in Johnston SC

Blaise is a very handsome 14 month old black tri male approx 58 lbs. Blaise is a big puppy who doesn't know his size, he definitely needs to work on jumping unless you like to be flattened by the bulldozer, so for this reason no small children. Some of the commands he knows: sit, down, wait (for food placed in front of him) and shake. Blaise is house and crate trained. Seems a little nervous when it comes to your taking his food bowl so will need work on getting comfortable around his food, you can give him treats with no problem. We have no idea, yet, how he is around dogs his size, his former owner said he was submissive to her small dogs, we have no idea how he is around cats. Once we get a better handle on his temperament we'll update his bio. Blaise will be fostered in Sanford, FL NSXXXX
Troy is just 8 months old and still very much a puppy. He's a beautiful red bi approx 40 lbs. We don't know much about him yet except he needs a NO cat home and supposedly loves to go to the dog park. We will update his bio when we know a bit more about him. Troy will be fostered in Naples, FL NSXXXX
We have another red head, meet the adorable Venti! This little sweetheart is 5 months old and about 25lbs (not a mini). He's a spitfire and can run like the wind. He's good with other dogs and love to run and play, I'd probably say no cats as he may chase them. We are getting to know Venti and will post more in the coming days. Venti will be fostered in Plantation, FL NSXXXX
