Princess Sheba  Princess Sheba is now on medical hold due to her age and medical issues including her arthritis , which we have shortened her walks from 3 to 2 and go with how she is feeling that day. She still enjoys meeting people , but loves her beauty sleep and quiet time to recharge . She does still enjoy being loved on. She also isn't enjoying her grooming as much and resists. She recently went off her food and I readjusted what she eats and how it is prepared and sometimes hand feed her. She used to eat with no problem. We want to insure she doesn't have to make any other adjustments and ensure she gets the care that she needs as a senior dog. Princess Sheba is being fostered in 
Spring Grove, PA  NS3291
Bailey Blue is a work in progress, learning to trust people. She may have been abused or had some head injury or is just naturally extremely shy of people, but she is great with other dogs.  This girl is a flower waiting to bloom and it will take some time to see how much more progress she can make. She may never be a very social dog with people she doesn't know but it's clear she will learn to love and trust at least one or two people.  Bailey Blue is fostered in Collegeville PA. NS3780
Mangus - ADOPTION PENDING - is in the 30 pound range and presently on medical hold due to recuperation from an accident. He is approximately 8 years old and semi-velcro. He always wants to know where you are and can hear you move from two rooms away. He is totally trust worthy without a crate, but will slip into his crate periodically for a nap. He experienced some time on his own before being rescued so asks that we keep all garbage can lids closed. He does not play with toys but enjoys belly rubs while in your lap and loves hanging on the deck watching the deer and new fawns on the outside of the fencing. Fostered in Stroudsburg, PA  NS3884
Joisy Boy

Joisy Boy is a red & white Border Collie or Aussie Mix. We believe he is at least 5 years old. He is a shy boy when you first meet him but he's very spunky when he gets to know you. Joisy Boy is great on leash and loves to sniff in a straight line as he walks (he does not go to the bathroom on walks so a yard is a must). He knows commands and was definitely trained in his previous life. He is fairly low energy and loves to cuddle or find a quiet spot to curl up in. (Couch access is mandatory in his opinion) He won't be able to contain his excitement when his people return home though and will bounce about while giving submissive toothy grins and demanding butt scratches.

Joisy Boy gets along with our other dogs but can be a bully and would probably do well in a home without cats or dogs. A submissive dog might be ok but he definitely prefers humans to dogs. 
He is shy around new people/situations and scared of the typical stuff (Storms/fireworks/loud noises). He would need a quiet home without small children and not too busy, preferably someone home most of the time. While he doesn't have separation anxiety, he definitely likes his person being around. He does get into things he shouldn't and knows to wait until everyone leaves, this includes bathroom trash, reachable food boxes/bags, paper towels etc. If he can reach it, he will get into it. 

Joisy Boy is fostered in Haddon Twp., NJ

Luna Lu

Luna Lu is an incredibly sweet young lady. She is estimated to be about 2 years old and weighs around 36 pounds. Earlier this year she gave birth to seven of the most adorable little pups. Luna was the most attentive, protective, and loving mama ever! The puppies were all adopted early April, and Luna has since been adjusting to life as a single lady and letting her guard down.

With her pups around, Luna didn’t play or socialize much with the two resident dogs. Over the past few weeks she has discovered how fun running around in the yard playing chase can be! She also really enjoys playing catch or just roaming around the yard exploring all the smells. Inside she loves all thing’s comfortable. Beds, sofas, blankets, your lap. She loves to lounge and it’s even better if you are right next to her.

Luna is highly velcro and will happily follow you room to room. She does well in her crate when left home alone for a few hours. She is your typical Aussie when it comes to leash walking - meaning she loves to herd and tends to walk in circles around you. She is vocal to other dogs and people when we pass them on walks. She does take a bit to warm up to other dogs but has had no issues with humans. Men, women, and many children were in and out of the house visiting her and the puppies and she loved them all.

A perfect home for Luna would be one that is willing to dedicate time to training her as she is still a bit untrained and insecure. Potentially a home where she is an only dog for a while, or an experienced home that can navigate slow introductions. Luna has strong reactions to cat sounds, so probably best to avoid homes with real ones.

This sweet mama has been through so much the past few months and gave so much love to her babies. It’s time for her to find her furever home and get all the love she deserves.

The Snow White Puppies

These adorable Aussie mix puppies are nearly 10 weeks old and they are eager to find their forever homes! Each one is outgoing, confident and loving. The puppies have consistent interaction with adult dogs in their foster home, learning from their bigger companions and developing into wonderful doggie friends themselves. They love to wrestle, play chase, and entertain themselves with toys. While still mastering potty training, they excel at cuddling and playing, soaking up all the attention they can get. With their sweet personalities and curious minds, they're busy exploring the world and discovering all the joys of puppyhood. This delightful and heartwarming bunch all weigh between 10-12lbs right now.

Malhon

Malhon hails from Puerto Rico where he was a young man about town, aka stray, but was picked up and fostered by a lovely lady in San Juan dedicated to helping the many strays there, or satos in Spanish. He is 2 years old, and a long haired Chihuahua mix, 25lbs. He was pretty traumatized by his flight to Dulles but within days decided it was safe to venture outside the crate and mingle with the locals. Now he is quite relaxed and friendly with his foster family, and is working hard on his English!

Malhon is fostered in Gloucester VA.

WV Bucky

This adorable and very skinny fellow was in WV and needs a new home with lots of love. He's about 2 years old, and maybe 40lbs but should be at least 45lbs. He's due to get fully vetted and all his shots June 18 and will be available after that. WV Bucky is just the sweetest most affectionate guy you can imagine. He gets along great with other dogs and has lovely play manners. He pulls a wee bit on leash mainly because he's not used to the idea, but he comes with an EZ-Walk harness which helps a lot. He's had no accidents in the house, and quickly adjusted to the idea of crates. His coat is a bit patchy and areas of his skin are dry but with good food and indoor living, he should soon grow a luxurious black coat.
Bucky came in with Ginnie but we're not sure if they're related: probably not. She is a good deal smaller and has a pointy face compared to his. She looks to him for confidence but they have both quickly made friends in their foster home with other dogs and after just two days, are going about confidently on their own. If someone wanted the pair though, they are lovely and affectionate to one another, and none of the over dependence or unhealthy competition one sometimes sees in "bonded" pairs.

Ginnie

Ginnie was living rough in WV and she really appreciates a soft bed and home cooked meals. We estimate her age at about 2, and current weight at 30, though she should probably weigh about 5lbs more. Her coat is thick and luxurious but we're working to strip out all the undercoat that should have been combed out in spring. Her color is kind of mystifying. It gives a slightly reddish impression in person but we can't tell if her nose leather is liver or black-- that is the defining indicator of genetic color in an Aussie. It may be once she has a few weeks of decent food and a good comb out, her coat will recover and show its true colors, but meantime it's a pretty coat, just not as nice as it's likely to be soon.

Ginnie is terribly sweet and affectionate, and follows WV Bucky, who came in with her, around, but she is gaining confidence with every passing hour and now will come and go to the yard on her own, and is striking up friendships with some of the other 8 dogs in her foster home. Although it's likely she never saw a crate before, she quickly decided they were okay, and will even go in an open one for a nap, so it's become a safe haven for her. Ginnie hasn't had any accidents in the house, and tends to stay with her person on leash.
