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
Ms Sydney was picked up as a stray and apparently had been shot at with BB's. She is fine now but heartworm positive and needs to be spayed.
This sweet pup is about 7 years old and deaf. She walks well on leash, gets along well with other dogs and loves to be petted. She will be available in early September.
Interested people with no experience with deaf dogs might want to go to www.deafdogsrock.com for great information.
Ms Sydney is fostered in Johnston, SC.

Cookie Monster is a sweet female, with the softest black fur, tipped in browns and whites with freckles on her nose. She's approximately 1-2 years old and 45lbs. Cookie Monster loves people and all of the attention they can show her. She will wag her tail while sitting around new people, and hustle towards you if you're a returning friend! Cookie Monster tolerates both cats and dogs; with dogs she's friendly and wants a playmate, but isn't overly annoying in her request! She is a medium-energy dog, who will play and bound around when she needs to let out energy or is given the chance, but also will settle and snuggle on the couch. Cookie Monster wants to be with her people, and will try to sneak through any cracked doors to get to them, but will go lie down and wait patiently if ignored or placed out of the room. She's housebroken and can be left for a reasonable amount of time alone in the house. She has been welcoming to men, women, and children she's met, including men over 6ft, and young children. Her foster home has two elementary-aged boys, and she's playful with them but will also fall asleep on the couch with them.
She's still learning how to play fetch, but she'll stay in the yard off of a leash--she returns when called. Cookie Monster also does well on a leash--she's strong enough to pull, and with her size, she would need someone capable of holding her, but both boys have been able to do so. She will walk at your pace once she's gotten a bit of energy out, but she would also be a good jogging partner! When on a walk and someone approaches, if the leash holder stops, she will also sit and wait to be approached, with her tail wagging. Cookie Monster loves a treat, but hasn't been sneaky and taken human food she's not meant to, though she sure tries to look convincing! She shows love through licking and hugging her people, which may be a bit overwhelming at first, but she is slowly learning when it's wanted and when it's not.
Cookie Monster is fostered in Bethel, NC. NSXXXX
