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
Scooby is back with us after 8 yrs due to his owners health. This boy is FAT, when was adopted out at 2 yrs old he was 18 lbs, he is now 38 lbs. His foster mom will be working on getting some of that weight off of him. He's a timid guy who does warm up and loves being petted and once he trusts you he'll roll over and let you pet his tummy! He is house and crate trained, loves other dog and his best buddy was a cat. Scooby will bark at strangers that come into his home or if he hears the neighbors in the yard but he does calm down. I think children may be a bit much for him. Sadly he doesn't play with toys or chase a ball but he's a great foot warmer and LOVES to go on walks! Scooby is in the process of being vetted and heartworm tested, we are hoping to do a dental also so it'll be a few weeks before he's available. This adorable little guy is fostered in St Petersburg, FL NS1564
Pretty Maybel is approx 14 months and around 26 lbs. Maybel is HIGH energy and needs a home that would like to do agility or some sort of dog sport (or running) and has another playful on-the-go dog. She was introduced to sheep and enjoyed working them; of course, she would need more training but she has potential. She gets along well with other dogs but can be an in your face sort of dog, so a dog who doesn't appreciate that may not be right dog for her. She IS learning some respect; she's still young. I probably wouldn't put her in a home with cats.
Maybel would also appreciate someone home more often than not as she does have to be let out often. She does fine at night in her crate so she can hold it. Maybel has some submissive urination because she just gets overly excited. Her foster home has been working with her and she's so much better than she was, but will still need a patient and understanding home as she will probably backslide on that when first going to a new home. We would prefer a home that is familiar with high energy aussies because this girl can go for hours! Maybel is not for a first time Aussie/dog owner.
Maybel can entertain herself with toys, she loves to just lay on the floor and roll with her toys and toss them. She knows sit, down, stay, and place (stays in a designated place on her bed or a mat). This girl is smart as a whip! She does well with children also, actually she likes people, she's just very submissive (the potty thing). Please no apartments and must have a securely fenced yard. Maybel will make a wonderful pet for someone that has the time to devote to her. Her foster home loves her and would have kept her if they didn't both work long hours.
Maybel is fostered in Fort Pierce, FL
