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
Bitty Boo is coming back into rescue after being adopted 10 yrs ago, her owner has passed away.
Bitty Boo is approx 14 yrs old and 60lbs, she is a little over weight but doing well. She has a growth on her gum that we need to get checked. She is good with all people, but due to her age I would not place with very young children. She is sweet and lovable.
She will be fostered in Gainesville, FL
Apply here for her. NS543
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

Mister Bling - ADOPTION PENDING is a wonderful young purebred male Aussie looking for a home. He is about 2 years old, weighs 45 pounds and is housebroken. Mister Bling loves other dogs and REALLY loves people. Unfortunately, Mister Bling is heartworm positive and we have started treatment. When finished, he will be as good as new! Mister Bling is fostered in Wilmington, NC and will be available for adoption in late June. We will update this post as we learn more about this heartbreaker! NSXXXX

Annie Belle is a beautiful, sweet, 7 year old black tri Aussie. She is a bit overweight at 54 pounds. When her owner died she was taken to her local shelter and is now looking for a new home! Annie Belle is housebroken, rides well in a car, walks timidly on a leash and is just starting to learn her basic commands.
Annie Belle is a calm, easy going girl who gets along great with dogs and cats, adults and children. She seems content to slip into the rhythm of her foster family’s routine, letting others be the center of attention! Annie Belle’s ideal home includes happy, loving adults looking for a companion dog 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.
Unfortunately, Annie Belle is heartworm positive, and so it will be early July before she is available for adoption. We are accepting applications for her now.
Annie Belle is fostered near Raleigh, NC.

If you are looking for a full-sized, friendly, happy male Aussie, Tennessee Blue may be the guy! Tennessee Blue is 2 ½ years old, a handsome blue merle with a full tail and copper accents who weighs about 60 pounds. He is housebroken, has never met a stranger, and loves other dogs and cats!
We will post an update as soon as he is vetted, so check back.
Tennessee Blue is fostered in Dahlonega, GA. NS3031
Saydee is a truly sweet young female Aussie mix looking for a new home. She is 1 ½ years old, has a very colorful blue merle coat and is too thin at 50 pounds. Saydee is housebroken, crate trained, walks nicely on a leash and rides quietly in a car. She has not had any real obedience training but her foster mom is working on this with her and she is a fast learner!
Saydee is a high Velcro dog who absolutely loves people and gets along very well with other dogs. She is fine with cats and enjoyed her time around cattle! Saydee successfully weaned a large litter of puppies and she is tired and thin. She is recovering beautifully, though, and based on what we can see so far, we expect that she will be a medium energy girl who will enjoy runs around the yard, hanging out with a dog pal and gentle play with toys.
Saydee is pretty flexible when it comes to her ideal home, but she would appreciate a home with another dog, a fenced yard and a family who is looking for a sweet, faithful companion.
Saydee is heartworm positive. We have started her treatment and expect her to make an excellent recovery.
Saydee is fostered in Apopka, FL. We are accepting adoption applications now, and she will be available for adoption in late June.

Young Opie is a happy, funny young red-bi purebred Aussie looking for a new home. Just one year old and a great size at 41 pounds, Young Opie is housebroken, crate-trained and knows a few basic commands. He walks pretty well on a leash and rides very well in a car (hint: his favorite seat is the front passenger seat so that he can spend part of the trip happily gazing at the face of the driver!!).
Young Opie has excellent focus which makes him so easy to train. He is a high Velcro guy who LOVES people. He is also a medium energy boy who loves to run and play with his foster dog brothers but then settles very nicely when playtime is over. Young Opie has not been cat tested. When he gets excited Young Opie will jump around a bit, so a home without very small children will be best – he could accidently knock them down.
Young Opie’s ideal home includes one or more active adults. Older children would be fine with him and a dog pal would be great. A fenced yard or some other way to get regular off-leash playtime will be important for this happy guy, and his adopter will need to like brushing his beautiful, very full coat. Sound like your perfect dog? Young Opie is fostered near Raleigh, NC, and we are accepting applications now!

Sweetie Pie is a very sweet and happy young Aussie mix. She is a red merle with very interesting markings and a full tail, just a bit thin at 40 pounds, and 1 ½ years old. She is housebroken and gets along great with other dogs, cats and children! She was born with a slight deformity in her spine so she “sashays” when she walks or runs but this does not bother her at all. We will post updates soon!
Sweetie Pie is fostered in Dallas, NC. NSXXXX
Scout Boy is about the smartest young boy you could ever meet! This mostly black Aussie mix is just over a year old and weighs 48 pounds. He is housebroken, crate trained and walks pretty well on a leash. He rides very well in a car although he needs a barrier because he wants to be your “copilot” in the front passenger seat.
A recent graduate of an obedience training course, Scout Boy is very well trained, although he does need continued reinforcement of all that he has learned. He is a high energy guy, exceptionally athletic, who loves to play ball and loves the water. He has a little of that Aussie reserve when he first meets a new dog or human, but that melts away quickly and he really does love other dogs and loves people He has not been cat or kid tested.
The ideal home for Scout Boy includes a very active person or family who is looking for an agility, flyball, running, swimming or biking partner. A fenced yard and a dog who loves to play would be perfect.
Sound like your new best dog friend? Scout Boy is fostered in Williamsburg, VA.
