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

Ember Ash is a 6 1/2 yr old black tri mini female a little on the chunky side, needs to lose around 10 lbs. Ember Ash is house and crate trained, loves to play ball, and has some basic obedience training. She does need work with pulling on walks! 

So far she's doing well with the resident dogs, we are not sure 
about cats.  Ember Ash can be a little timid/anxious upon first 
meeting but does warm up quickly. She's very excitable, just needs an 
outlet and exercise (not a couch potato)! 

She would love a nice fenced yard to play fetch in, a yard is not something she's used to. She has lived with children but older children would be best due to her excitable jumping.

More info to come as we get to know her better. 

 Ember Ash is fostered in Thonotasassa, FL

Hobe 16 mo old Hobe is proving to be a cuddler. He walks well on a leash, rides well in a car and is greeting other dogs politely.  Hobe is heartworm positive so will not be available until May. He is fostered in Johnston SC.  NS3588
Little Charlie

Little Charlie is just adorable weighing in at about 12 lbs. He is 8 yrs young! 

This little guy is all wiggles, I'm waiting for him to fall over from all that backend motion! Little Charlie is good with people and cats, he does have a tendency to growl at male dogs. 

He rides well in the car, walks on a loose leash, is house and crate trained. Playing with his stuffed toys and playing chase with you is his fun time. 
A nice quiet home with another, small female dog might be best for him. 

Little Charlie is fostered in Naples, FL

Apply here for him.  NS3594
Tiny Grace

Tiny Grace is just that, tiny, she's all of 17 lbs. She is 11 yrs young. 

She is a bit shy/reserved but loving and does well with everyone once over the initial shyness. She loves to play fetch with stuffed toys, not balls, and chew on stuffed long bones. 

This little girl is house and crate trained, walks on a loose leash, and rides well in the car, also reported to be good with cats. Tiny Grace has a sweet and gentle temperament and would do best in a home that is quiet with out rambunctious or big dogs. 

Tiny Grace is fostered in Naples, FL.  

Apply here for her.  NS3591
Cubby  Cubby came in as a stray from a local shelter. He is approximately a 1 ½ year old blue merle Aussie/Border Collie mix (or at least that's what we think), and he weighs about 38 pounds.  Cubby is on hold pending  medical evaluation.  He is being fostered in Dallas, GA. NS3590
