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
Gramaussie is the sweetest little old lady ever, and at age 15 finds herself without a home. This little 35 pound Aussie girl is hard of hearing, can't see quite as well as she used to and walks a bit stiffly thanks to some arthritis, but she can still find those dog biscuits, loves everyone and enjoys a daily nap in the sunshine. We have started treatment for her “aches and pains”, we are monitoring her progress and will post updates here! Gramaussie is fostered near Ocala, Florida. NS3283
Here is the new Duffy and surprise, he is an Aussie-doodle. What a winner! Two of the smartest dogs on the planet with a barely shedding coat. Duffy loves to be brushed but it only takes a couple of minutes to be sure his curls are properly curly. He still runs stairs for fun and is a lean 65 pounds of pure love. He is neutered, up to date on all his shots and on HW and flea preventative.
Duffy has never met a stranger, running up and sitting politely to be petted then runs back to his person. He gets along with all sizes of dogs from an 8 pound beagle to a fit and muscular American Bull Dog. In every case, like people, he gives them a sniff then runs off to do his business. He loves to ride in a car, crates well, is house trained and has a super recall. His favorite place is on the sofa with you. He sleeps on a dog bed in the bedroom with his foster family. He walks well on a leash too.
This dog is the definition of a comfort dog. All he wants is to be beside you, whether you are gardening or watching a show on TV. He is a major cuddler and never happier than when he is being stroked, brushed or played with. He does some ball chasing but is not addicted. He would just as soon go walking with you, sniffing out what the neighborhood offers. A quiet dog, he seems to only bark when another dog lets him know there is a reason.
He is fostered in Johnston SC
Apply here for him. NS3354
Bravo is coming back into the program after a very long time due to the presence of a new baby in the family. There have been no incidents, but the baby makes him nervous and it will be increasingly difficult to keep them separated. At 9 years old, this red tri is not slowing down a bit! Fetching a Frisbee is his absolute favorite activity and he will carry it for an entire walk to the park and back home after playing. The current family describes him as a great dog and says "He has a cat's personality, but plays and loves like a dog." Bravo is currently in Powder Springs GA NS1814
