KY Dune

Meet Dune, he’s a 1 yr old very active young dog (DOB 7/25/21) who has a great disposition. He is quIck to learn and friendly with everyone. He needs lots of room to run and a fenced yard. He has lived in a house and is housebroken and crate trained. He needs to learn your house rules, and will need a lot of leash work, which we have started. He previously lived with an 8 yr old and a teenager.
Because of his activity level, we suggest no children under 5. He is up to date on all shots, HW negative, neutered, and his hair will get longer ( before turn in the owner had him shaved) he previously has a fabulous coat. He does have one blue eye and one hazel eye. He did not react to cats when tested, but each dog/cat combo needs to be checked. 

 He is available In Maineville Ohio. Click below to fill in an application or contact Aussie@aol.com for more information.

Apply here for him.  NS3692

Racina is a very sweet 1 1/2 year old Aussie mix. She weighs 36 pounds and has a beautiful red bi coat. 

Racina loves to play outside with her foster pals, but relaxes nicely indoors. She can be left alone since she is housebroken, but being young, she may chew on a rug or other small items left on the floor. 

She gets along great with the other dogs but appears to like other female dogs better, especially if they like to chase her and romp around the yard. She does show interest in cats so a house without cats would be better for her. 

Racina would be a wonderful companion for a single person, but she would also do nicely in a home with children over 7 due to her young energetic age. She will jump up on people once in awhile, but is easily corrected with a firm "No". 

She is very timid and will slink away from people she doesn't know; but, once she trusts you, she wants to come up to you for some love. When she looks at you with her lovely brown doe eyes, you can't resist her persistence for some pets. 

Racina does have an extra toe (large dew claws) on each of her hind legs, but it does not hinder her in any way. She has been completely vetted and spayed. 

Racina is being fostered in Flint, MI and is eagerly awaiting her new forever home.

Apply here for her.  NS3891
