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
Baz, also known as Sebastian, is a sweet and gentle soul. He is
almost 3 years old and weighs 37 pounds. At first, he is your typical
Aussie, a bit anxious around new people and pets, but he is very quick to warm up. Baz's energy level is medium and he needs a human that enjoys playtime and walks.
While outside Baz enjoys running and playing fetch but inside he is very calm and respects boundaries. He is great with other dogs and is curious and non-aggressive towards cats. Aussies love to herd so Baz would thrive in a home of adults and older children.
Baz loves everyone but he is a lady’s man and gravitates towards women. His Velcro tendencies are medium; he wants to be in the same room but does not need to be sitting on top of you.
He is housebroken, does well in his kennel but we are still working on his leash training and he gets a little timid. A fence is preferred
since we have done very little work with his recall.
Baz is fostered in Dallas, GA.
Apply here for him. NS3550
Rex Sparta - ADOPTION PENDING
Rex Sparta is a 14 mo red merle male approx 30 lbs who is hearing impaired. He has a little hump to his spine which the vet feels is congenital, it does not bother him and he's very active! Fostered in Ocala, FL NS3568
I Am the Champion Champ is a 9yo dilute red merle. He lived his whole life in a ten x ten pen and never groomed. As a result his coat was so matted he could hardly walk without pain. He has been shaved but will be a beauty in a year. Champ is working on leash walks and climbing stairs. He wants to be a snuggle bug once he figures out living in a house. He is fostered in Johnston, SC NS3573
