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

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
Blue Chaser 

Blue Chaser is a friendly, happy purebred Aussie “of a certain age” who was surrendered to our rescue by his owner who could no longer care for him. He is a beautiful blue merle with copper trim, weighs 45 pounds and is 10-12 years old. Blue Chaser has slightly diminished hearing and vision, but hey, he is not a youngster!! He gets around fine and can hear when you call. Blue Chaser is housebroken, crate-trained, walks very well on a leash and loves to ride in the car. He is just starting to learn his basic commands.

Blue Chaser spent most of his life alternating between a small, dirt-floor kennel and a very small crate, and so he is just learning about the world. He loves people and gets along great with other dogs. He has not been cat tested. Blue Chaser is a lower energy guy who does not play games or run after balls, but he loves to take walks, loves to roll in the grass, and loves to just stroll around and sniff in the yard. And of course, Blue Chaser loves to be wherever the humans are, especially if they have a dog cookie or two!!

Blue Chaser still has some medical problems that require treatment. We are placing him on medical hold while we work to make him as healthy as possible.  NS3207

​Mister Custer is a sweet, healthy, mini-Aussie whose owner died and so he is now in search of a new home. He is a 10-year-old purebred, a red tri, and he weighs just 22 pounds! Mister Custer is housebroken, crate-trained, knows his basic commands, rides beautifully in the car and walks well on leash.

Mister Custer is curious and fun! He loves people, gets along great with other dogs and happily shares his dinner bowl with the resident cat. Mister Custer loves to start his day by flying down the stairs to the backyard, exploring around the trees and ponds, playing with the other dogs, and then scrambling back up the stairs to spend some quality time napping in the sun. What a life!

The ideal home for Mister Custer includes a family who can make room in their hearts for a great little guy who has so much love and fun to give. Dogs and cats are welcome, and an occasional stroll in the neighborhood or ride in the car would make his week complete. If Mister Custer sounds like your ideal package of doggy fun apply today! Mister Custer is fostered in Ellijay, GA.

Dear sweet Laska, (13 months old and around 44 lbs), she just wants to be with you. She loves to lay and chew her bones or play with her toys. Laska is more on the laid back side. 

We don't think she's been out and about much, lots of things are new to her. She does not walk well on a leash (pulls) just needs some fine tuning there. She is ok with other dogs (she's lived with one), but will nip at dogs that go running by. Obedience/socialization classes would do her wonders. Not sure how she'd be with cats as she's not been around them in foster care.  

Laska's foster mom and been working on crate training and it's going well. She is house trained! She's good with men and women, probably older children, she likes to jump some.

Laska is fostered in Apopka, FL

Hobbitt is a very handsome, smaller purebred Aussie who is looking for a new home. This black tri is 8 years old and weighs 35 pounds. Hobbitt is housebroken, crate-trained, rides very well in the car and walks nicely on leash. He also knows his basic commands.

Hobbitt loves people and other dogs and ignores cats. He loves hanging out with his foster family, inspecting the property lines and ponds every morning, playing with his dog pals and then spending time on the deck watching the world go by.  

The ideal home for Hobbitt is with a person or family who is looking for a new best friend, a companion who can easily slip into the rhythm of the family. Another dog or dogs would be great, cats are fine and a fenced yard is a plus. If Hobbitt sounds like your guy apply today! Hobbitt is fostered in Ellijay, GA.

Little itty bittie Tillie is 7.5 months old and weighs about 16 lbs. I believe she's going to be a smaller mini. Tillie is very sweet, happy and friendly, but rather submissive and new things/sounds scare her; however, her foster mom is working with her on this and she's coming along. She is crate trained and working on her house training; her foster mom is  trying to teach her to ring the bell when she needs to go out! Tillie walks ok on a leash, does get a bit car sick (but didn't get sick on the boat). She knows sit and shake! We are still getting to know her, she'll be available in a couple of weeks. Tillie is fostered in Naples, FL  NS3247
