Andy

Andy is a handsome red bi colored Aussie with a docked tail taken to the shelter as the result of a cruelty case.  He spent months there while the particulars of the case were hashed out.  Understandably, Andy has some anxiety issues when dealing with new people.  He is wonderful with other dogs and cats in his foster home.

With consistency and some good manners training, he is coming along very well.  Andy is so far crate trained and housetrained.

Please stay tuned as he continues his training. 

He is fostered in Lawrenceville, GA.  NS 1992
Ivy


Sweet Ivy has been failed twice by people. First when she was turned into the shelter in 2009 and second, recently when she found herself back in a shelter. This time around, Ivy really needs your help.  Ivy is a wonderful 7 year old girl that is great with all dogs and people. 
Since returning to rescue, Ivy has... shown a significant limp and an unwillingness to place her foot down and walk correctly. She is obviously uncomfortable. Her vet discovered yesterday she likely has a torn ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament). She is scheduled for surgery next Thursday.

We need your help to cover the cost of the surgery that will allow her to walk and play without pain. Please consider a tax deductible donation for Ivy NS 0323.

She is such a charming dog and is fostered in Kennesaw, GA. 

Apply here for her.  NS 0323
Myka     PENDING

Myka is a gorgeous black tri Aussie boy with a heart of gold.  He came to rescue after being abandoned with his Aussie buddy (adopted from the shelter) by his former owner.  Based on his poor condition at rescue, Myka was on his own for awhile.  Myka is about 4 years old and weighs about 55 lbs.

Despite all of this, Myka holds no grudges to people.  He is a wonderful boy, laid back and sweet.  He is good with cats and other dogs and is a nice laid back houseguest.  Myka is a sweetheart and enjoys attention and moderate walks per day.  He's not a Frisbee chaser or very excited about toys, but he's a super nice companion.
Myka was tested twice for heartworms and both times, the results were inconclusive.  Two vets feel that his case is so mild, there is no reason for him to undergo treatment.  The recommendation for Myka is to maintain him on Heartworm prevention and any worms in his system will be dissolved within a few months. 
Myka is fostered in Marietta, GA.

TJ

TJ is a 3 yr old red merle male mini.  He’s approx 45lbs and needs to lose about 15lb so right now he’s on a diet and exercise regimen!  TJ is house and crate trained and seems good with people.  He might be too much for children with his lack of manners!  He is ok with other dogs but can be a pest with them; so far no one has put him in his place.  He is on the go and needs lots of exercise or he will let you know he’s bored, he can be rather vocal!  He would be best in a home that will keep him exercised and give him boundaries.  TJ is sweet and loving and has lots of potential! 

TJ is fostered in Port St. John, FL.
Apply here to meet him.  NS 2062

Gemma is a gem; a diamond in the rough!  She is a very sweet, beautiful female Aussie mix, at about 1.5 years old and weighs about 45 pounds.  We don’t know much about her past except that she was ready to get out of the animal shelter!  She LOVES to play with her foster brother and is mostly housebroken.  She will be easy to train.  Keep watching for updates as we learn more about this gem of a dog!!  Gemma is being fostered in Kernersville, NC.  NS 2089
