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
Rocky Red Rocky - PENDING ADOPTION
Rocky Red Rocky is a neutered doubled red merle male, weighing in at 60 pounds, 8 1/2 y.o. You will immediately fall in love with this shy, anxious loving guy. Rocky believes that he is the size of a lap dog, so he cant understand why he has problems fitting on your lap. His blue eye are piercingly beautiful and expressive.
He is fine with dog savvy cats and plays well with my other dogs. He would be most comfortable with a passive older dog as his companion or as an only dog in a quiet older owner home. Rocky is very high level velcro. His energy level is mid level. He walks fairly well on a leash. He needs more time learning good leash skills. Housebroken and crate trained. He is not crated at night or when I leave the house. He has good house manners. Rocky does well with adults. I will not place him with in a home with children.
Rocky needs a fenced yard, his recall is terrible. He doesn't show much interest in squirrels but would love to catch a rabbit. This shy anxious guy hides from strangers. He will socialize after awhile. He is currently taking Prozac for his anxiety. The perfect home for this loving senior gentleman would be stable, quiet, and loving with plenty of patience as he readjust to a new home.
