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

Brooke is a 17lb blue merle that is around 7 months old. She is a shy girl that needs a understanding adopter of her past experience with life. She was found in a hoarding situation with twenty-seven others and being fostered with Beau Duke! 

Brooke occasionally will play with dogs, but doesn't understand what it means to be a dog herself yet. Another dog would be good for some little play, but not too much. She is also good with cats. 

Brooke is a low velcro aussie, that prefers to be an independent woman! Children have not been tested around Brooke. She needs a owner that will show her endless love and patience. Experience with shy dogs, potty and leash training would be ideal. Due to her past life, Brooke needs a home with a fence. 

She is a special girl that needs some time to warm up in a home and become your best friend. 

She is fostered in Salem WI

Apply here for her. NS3826

Bellamy 8 yr old black tri spayed female, crate trained, kennel trained. Knows: sit, come, down. NO FABRIC of any type, no carpets, must have physical fenced yard. Located in Maineville, OH  NS2525

Gustav is a male, red merle 1 year old (BD 3/13/2022), at 50 lbs.  He is well socialized, very friendly, velcro and snuggly.  He does well with males and females but has not been child tested.  He is very good with other dogs, but will definitely need a cat-free home.  

Gustav is medium-high on the energy scale.  This boy is a diamond in the rough.  He does get anxious on car rides.  We are working on basic manners, leash training and recall to get him to be the best boy he can be.  

A home that will follow through and take his training to the next level will be best.  

Gustav is fostered in Louisville, KY

Apply here for him.  NSXXXX
