Tiny Baxter

Baxter is about 13 1/2 pounds and loves to play with dogs that are about his size, he needs a very patient and loving home as he came from my hoarding situation.

It will take him some time to bond with his new family, but he is well worth the effort. He is housebroken, crate trained, walks well on leash, and rides very nicely in the car. He knows sit and go kennel. He goes outside to go potty, because of his situation, he will need a fully fenced yard. 

 The others we have taken from the situation are doing well in their new home.

Please put in your application. He is located near Dayton Ohio. Please contact [email protected] for more info.

Autumn Bloom

Autumn Bloom is a 7 month old black tri aussie mix with a cute half tail. He's about 40lbs and is super friendly, playful and energetic. He loves to be pet, play with other dogs and cuddle. His favorite activities are off leash hiking, swimming and playing fetch. He will be the greatest addition to your family. Autumn is good with cats, dogs, chickens and kids. 

He is a medium energy pup but does settle down after getting some of his energy out. He does like to play with toys. He's medium velcro as he does want to be by humans but also goes off and plays. He sleeps in a crate at night and when left unattended. Autumn does not have any known health issues and is a happy puppy. He is fully housebroken and crate trained. He eats all of his food and is at a good weight for his size. He has been super friendly to all humans including kids. Autumn needs someone who can give him love, exercise and training. He is still working on basic obedience and walking on leash but is doing great for being a puppy. He stays with you when off leash and has good recall. Autumn does not have any aggression or resource guarding.

He's a perfect loving puppy looking for the perfect forever home. Autumn would do best with someone who likes to explore the outdoors by hiking and swimming.
Autumn Bloom is fostered in Salem, WI

Apply here for him.  NS3980

Max is an Aussie mix who is approximately 7 years old. Max is one of the most good natured dogs that I have had the pleasure to foster. He is very striking and gets lots of attention when I walk him. 

 He has been neutered and is up to date on all his shots. His vet says he has a long healthy life ahead of him and he is very fit weighing in at 53 pounds. 

  Max is very sweet and loves his humans. He is particularly good with small children as he is so gentle. Max gets along well with dogs, but has not been cat tested. He does very well walking on a leash and has a very good recall. He knows the commands of sit and down and rides well in the car. Max does well in a busy environment as he has been to many parties and has behaved perfectly–he also settles down quietly in the house. He is very affectionate and loves his pats and attention. He is patient when his teeth and fur are being brushed so taking care of him is quite easy. 

                                                              If you are interested in Max, please fill out an application and I                                                                    would be happy to talk to you about him.  


                                                                He's fostered in Prospect, KY just outside Louisville.
