Reed is an adorable 4 month old male, black bi with a tail. He could be an Aussie mix. He was found as a puppy with Echo (below) in a very rural area. We had no luck locating an owner. He is a sweet kind boy who just wants to please his person. He is affectionate and curious and loves to be in your lap! Reed does well with cats, at least his foster mom’s cats. He even initiates play with them! He is house and crate trained.
Reed is fostered in Alachua, FL.

This is True Blue. He weighs in at 40lbs. He is about 8yrs old and just had a full checkup and teeth cleaning. He has partial sight (True Blue went to eye specialist and can see shadows in BOTH EYES) and partial hearing, hearing only high pitched whistles. He is learning sign language for “come” and “good boy”. Hears high pitched noice, so whistles work great.
This housetrained gentleman is just the sweetest boy ever! If you’ve ever considered adopting a wonderful special needs boy, he is for you.
True Blue is fostered in Zephrhills, FL.

Andy is a handsome red bi colored Aussie with a docked tail taken to the shelter as the result of a cruelty case. He spent months there while the particulars of the case were hashed out. Understandably, Andy has some anxiety issues when dealing with new people. He is wonderful with other dogs and cats in his foster home.
With consistency and some good manners training, he is coming along very well. Andy is so far crate trained and housetrained.
Please stay tuned as he continues his training.
He is fostered in Lawrenceville, GA. NS 1992
Sweet Ivy has been failed twice by people. First when she was turned into the shelter in 2009 and second, recently when she found herself back in a shelter. This time around, Ivy really needs your help. Ivy is a wonderful 7 year old girl that is great with all dogs and people.
Since returning to rescue, Ivy has... shown a significant limp and an unwillingness to place her foot down and walk correctly. She is obviously uncomfortable. Her vet discovered yesterday she likely has a torn ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament). She is scheduled for surgery next Thursday.
We need your help to cover the cost of the surgery that will allow her to walk and play without pain. Please consider a tax deductible donation for Ivy NS 0323.
She is such a charming dog and is fostered in Kennesaw, GA.

Candee is an eight year old former Therapy dog who found her way to rescue as a result of divorce. She if formerly certified in canine assisted therapy and her former owner and foster Dad would love to see her skills continued in a new home.
Besides the below, she is also great with dogs, cats, adults, and kids. She would love to explore her therapy background more. Candee's foster Dad says she is the easiest foster he's every had. It's obvious her pet parent before rescue invested a great deal of time in her training.
These are the general hand and simultaneous verbal commands that Candee knows:
- "heel" she heels to the right side
- "down" a flat hand waved down
- "stay" a flat pam, fingers up (she has stayed and ignored for up to 45 min by her mom, until given the free command)
- "roll-over" a flat hand rolled over
- "leave-it" for anything that she should ignore
- "cuddle" she usually snuggles her long nose against your neck and puts a paw on you)
- "crawl" I stumbled into this one on a down command (slowly back away from her with flat hand down)
Candee is fostered in Lawrenceville, GA.

ZuZu is a sweet, beautiful, 25 pound, 3 year old blue merle little lady who is brand new to our program. She was a stray, rescued from a shelter, so we don’t know anything about her past and we are just getting to know her personality. She instantly bonded with her foster mom and knows basic commands. Stay tuned for updates on her! She is being fostered in Durham, NC. NS TBD
Myka is a gorgeous black tri Aussie boy with a heart of gold. He came to rescue after being abandoned with his Aussie buddy (adopted from the shelter) by his former owner. Based on his poor condition at rescue, Myka was on his own for awhile. Myka is about 4 years old and weighs about 55 lbs.
Despite all of this, Myka holds no grudges to people. He is a wonderful boy, laid back and sweet. He is good with cats and other dogs and is a nice laid back houseguest. Myka is a sweetheart and enjoys attention and moderate walks per day. He's not a Frisbee chaser or very excited about toys, but he's a super nice companion.
Myka was tested twice for heartworms and both times, the results were inconclusive. Two vets feel that his case is so mild, there is no reason for him to undergo treatment. The recommendation for Myka is to maintain him on Heartworm prevention and any worms in his system will be dissolved within a few months.
Myka is fostered in Marietta, GA.
Apply here for him. NS 1970
Bailee is a 7 year old Aussie turned in by her owner. Bailee is a gorgeous girl with a wonderful attitude.
She is generally good with other well behaved dogs. Hyper, exuberant puppies tend to annoy her a bit, but she does eventually warm up to them. Bailee is a laid back and very sweet houseguest. She rides great in the car, walks nicely on leash and enjoys the dog park.
Bailee loves playing fetch and while she's just fine with women, she immediately connects with men. Bailee is a daddy's girl and would love to have a man to call her own.
Bailee is fostered in Alpharetta, GA.
