​Bubbaroo is 7 yrs. young. He weighs 50 lbs, and has a full tail. His owner died, so he needs a new family. 

 He knows sit and we're working on his leash manners.  He is selective about the dogs he meets because he has had limited experience with other dogs. 

Bubbaroo rides very well in the car as his prior home took him everywhere. He is house broken and we're working on crate training.  

He is located in Maineville Ohio, contact Aussie@aol.com for more info.  NS2920
Red Rocket will be 1yr old in October. He is from a farm and knows nothing yet, but he's got great potential. He is tall and thin, is now fully vetted, and likes all dogs and humans.NS2977

Mr. O is a blue Merle male, who needs an experienced handler but he is usually good with other dogs.  He is housebroken, crate trained, and decent on lead, knows, sit, come, and down. He’s just a bit stubborn, so we would prefer no kids under 10. He is about 40 lbs and up to date on shots. He is fostered in Maineville, Ohio.  NS2974
Kansas is a Red Merle Male. He is 58.6 pounds and estimated to be 4 years old. Kansas came to us from a shelter and we are still getting to know his personality.  Stay tuned for updates.  Kansas is fostered in Whichita, KS  NS3300

Grandpa is somewhere between 2 and 4 years old, weighs around 50 pounds and could stand to gain a few.

He is a super sweet boy who is acclimating to very new circumstances, like the comforts of home and a regular feeding schedule.  He is shy at first but is warming up to both people and other dogs.  Grandpa is easily startled but does get over it quickly.  He loves to be pet and stays very close by his people.

He would probably do well in a home without dogs but someone with experience could transition him into their pack.  Feeding time with Grandpa is a race to the bottom of the bowl, but we expect this to change as he learns he will be regularly fed.

Grandpa is fostered in Memphis, TN

Apply here for him.  NS3331
Captain Jack

Captain Jack is underweight right now at around 30 pounds and will be an even more handsome boy once he fills out.  He is estimated to be between 2 and 4 years old.

He is super sweet and very Velcro.  He really wants all the pets and attention.  Given that he would prefer not to share the attention, he would do best in a home without dogs. However, he does get along well with his foster's dog.

Captain Jack is quickly acclimating to living in a home and, as he gets used to our routine, he will come to learn that regular feeding is a guarantee.  Once he does, we expect he'll eat at a more leisurely pace.  He has not been tested with cats or children.
