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
Little Charlie is just adorable weighing in at about 12 lbs. He is 8 yrs young! This little guy is all wiggles, I'm waiting for him to fall over from all that backend motion! Little Charlie is good with people and cats, he does have a tendency to growl at male dogs. He rides well in the car, walks on a loose leash, is house and crate trained. Playing with his stuffed toys and playing chase with you is his fun time. A nice quiet home with another, small female dog might be best for him. Little Charlie is fostered in Naples, FL Little Charlie is currently heartworm positive and won't be available until July. NS3594

Nola is an adorable and fun 2 year old red merle purebred Aussie girl. She will definitely melt your heart when she looks at you with her one blue eye and her other half brown-half blue eye. Despite her young age, she is more of a medium energy girl. She loves a good walk and a nice frisbee session in the yard, but also knows the value of a good snooze and will happily rest at your feet after playing.
Nola is a high velcro girl. She isn't under foot at all but absolutely wants to be within a few feet of her family at all times. She is hesitant and shy when she meets new people, and is working on learning to get comfortable around new friends. She seems to gravitate more toward men than women. She does fairly well on a leash and has grown to enjoy her crate. She is also completely housebroken. She is smart as can be and has learned lots of words already, and can find her leash, frisbee, crate, and toys all on command! She also knows the basics like sit, lay down, stay, etc.
Nola's ideal home would be a family of two or more people (being in just a one person household, it might be very tempting for her to latch on to one person too strongly and she's got to keep up learning to spread the love all around!). She is very patient with young children, but would probably thrive most in a house with kids who are 3-4 years old and up. She has only met one cat on a walk and proved quickly that her prey drive is strong and should be in a cat-free home! She has probably not had a chance in the past to socialize much with other dogs, and isn't aggressive but is definitely hesitant and cautious around other dogs. For that reason, it would be best for Nola to be the only dog in the home, but she should absolutely keep working on meeting new dog friends outside her home!
Kookie Blues is a high energy girl looking for a high energy home! This adorable spitfire is a little over a year old, approx 40lbs.
Kookie Blues runs with her foster dad and would do so until she drops, they even got her running shoes! She is learning to settle, a bit, and working on house and crate training. A playmate might be nice, she's trying so hard to get the resident dogs to play but they are having none of her silliness. Good with people, dogs, and reportedly cats.
If you are looking for a pup that will keep you on your toes, this just might be the girl.

Nola's absolute favorite things in the world are playing frisbee, playing ball, snuggling with her humans, eating treats, and going for walks. She can't wait to get settled in her furever home where she can share these things with her family! Does she sound like a good fit for you? Apply for her today!
