What we do: We evaluate Australian Shepherds and Australian Shepherd mixes from selected shelters and private owners no longer able to keep their Aussies. If we judge a dog suitable for placement with an average adopter, we foster it in private homes and get to know the dog. We then post the dog to our website and place it in an adoptive home where the energy levels, expectations and personalities are a good fit.
Think of us as a "doggie dating service"!

We just wanted to share that our beloved girl Mavis, formerly Shelbee NS2077, who fostered with you, went on her way earlier this week. She would have been with us 10 years in March, and the vet placed her somewhere at least 13 years old.
She was the delight of our household from the day she joined us, and helped us welcome a second generation of cats to our lives, as well. We were grateful that we had a warning of her cancer while she was still feeling well, and we packed her last few weeks with a trip to the beach on Christmas Eve, several gentle hikes in the woods and snoozes by the fire at our cabin in the Catskills, lots and lots of snuggles, and she got to see all the people and other animals she loved.
Throughout her life she was one of the gentlest dogs we've ever met, and our friends' young son often said "Mavis is for hugging," whenever he introduced her to other children. She hiked a portion of the White Mountains with us, joined us on several other camping and road trips, and was a favorite of all our neighborhood haunts.
Our home may feel empty, but our hearts are so full. Thank you for the part you played in bringing her into our lives.
