Penuche is an adorable low rider, she is an aussie/corgi/?? mix. We pulled her mother a few months ago, Wiglet, who was a corgi/aussie mix (dad was aussie/mom was corgi).  Penuche is around 1 1/2 yrs old.  She is very terrified of people as she was pretty much ingnored and left to her own devices.  She does well with other dogs and is trying to play with the foster's dogs!   Her foster parents are working with her and she seems to be doing better with the husband (her former owner was a woman).  We will update when we have more.  She is fostered in Thonotasassa, FL  NS2745

Kozmo is 5 yrs old, he's an Aussie/Border Collie cross. Kozmo is a bigger boy, weighing in at 70 lbs.  

He is fostered in a home with 2 other dogs; he's having a blast with one but the other is deaf/blind and pushy, something Kozmo isn't appreciating.  

According to his previous owner he's good with men/women/children and cats (foster doesn't have cats). He is still new to us so more info as we get to know him.  

Kozmo is fostered in Tampa, FL

BearBear came in as a stray from a local shelter; he's pretty timid but we can tell he'll come around. He's already trusting his foster parents and is acclimating into the pack (2 other dogs). Shelter says he's about 4 but we feel he may be a bit older. BearBear was so matted the shelter couldn't even tell if he was neutered or not. Thankfully they had him shaved down and bathed for us and found that he is neutered!! He has been vetted all except a heartworm test. Right now BearBear is just taking it easy.  He's not thrilled with a leash so his foster home is just letting him drag it around and be chill. They will start working with him once he's decompressed. We think he's going to be a sweet heart of a Bear! BearBear is fostered in Ormond Beach, FL  NSXXXX
Scooby Doo

Scooby Doo is one fun guy in search of a new home! This two year old Aussie mix weighs about 45 pounds and has a beautiful coat that is mostly white with patches of black and brown. Scooby Doo is housebroken, has wonderful house manners, walks well on a leash, knows many basic commands and loves to ride in a car. What a guy!

Scooby Doo loves all people, including children, and gets along great with other dogs. He has not been cat tested. Scooby Doo loves to hang out with his foster family, doing whatever it is that they are doing. Playing in the yard with the other dogs or with a toy? Great! Eating? Perfect! Watching TV in the evening after dinner? Count him in! Everything is fun for this medium Velcro, medium energy boy.  

Scooby Doo’s ideal home is with a family looking for a great companion who is ready to be part of their human/dog pack. He is an adaptable guy who would do well in a number of living situations, but a fenced yard and another dog or two are required. Ready to add a Scooby Doo to your family pack? Apply now! 

He is fostered in Harrisburg, NC.

Bozzy is a sweet, high energy, 20 month old red merle male weighing approx 32lbs. Bozzy loves to be with people and will settle down, snuggle, and be very affectionate and loving. He enjoys playing with other dogs around his energy level (can play pretty rough) and is reported to be good with children (not around kids in his foster home). He rides well in the car. 

His life revolves around play and love .Bozzy is house-trained, not crate-trained and needs work on the leash (a harness has been helping). He has been working on basic commands and making progress, but needs continued training. 

Bozzy needs LOTS of exercise, a couple walks a day isn't going to be enough. An ideal home for him would include a fenced yard, NO cats, and another playful dog that can take rough housing; however, not a must.  

He has the potential to make a great outdoor adventure buddy and/or jogging partner.

Bozzy is fostered in Savannah, GA

Tamara is a pretty 4 yr old, 35 lb, blue merle female. Tamara seems to be a sweet girl, fairly high energy so will need an active home. She just came in so we are getting to know her.  

So far she is having a great time with her foster's female aussie, running and chasing! She had been crated quite a bit in her previous home and does well in her crate, but will need a house training refresher course, something her foster mom will work on.  

She has never been exposed to children or cats but does well with dogs. More info as we get to know her.

Tamara is fostered in Stuart, FL

Checotah can be a little reserved at first until she gets to know you (she warms up to some people quicker than others). She is a medium-to active girl who needs something to keep her busy! She loves other dogs so a doggie buddy would be great! 

Her former owner said she did ok with dog savvy cats. Oone of hers she didn't mess with, one she herded, the other she drug around the house like a ragdoll (that cat loves dogs).  So cats not used to dogs may not appreciate this (the current foster home doesn't have cats).  

She loves to play fetch, likes walks, and car rides! She is nervous with children so we won't place in a home with children. Checotah would do best with someone who is experienced with dogs as she needs a strong but fair leader. She really is a love bug!  

Checotah is fostered in Ocala, FL

​Little itty bitty Isabelle has just joined us. She is approx 18 months old, weighs 21 lbs. and cute as a button. Such a princess always crossing her paws. 

 Isabelle is good with other dogs but may try to be a little bossy, she corrects very easily, we aren't sure about cats. She loves to run and chase one of her foster buddies and is learning to play with toys.  
She seem nervous around children, they move too quickly for her. She needs work on house training and is crate trained. Isabelle is still a youngster and needs to be watched or she may chew something inappropriate. 

This girl is a love bug, the perfect lap warmer. If you are her chosen person she will follow you to the ends of the earth.

Isabelle is fostered in Thonotasassa, FL

Sunny Boy

Sunny Boy is a shy guy around 22 lbs, his foster mom is working with him and he's doing really well. He's probably not been well socialized and needs to learn about the world. 

He is good with other dogs, no cats or children since we don't know how he is with them. Sunny Boy will need a loving, patient home to help him be all that he can be. He's such a sweet guy!  

Sunny Boy is fostered in Thonotosassa, FL  NS3189
Sam I Am

Sam I Am is a great young Aussie who is looking forward to finding a great new home! This little 7-month-old, black tri purebred with two gorgeous blue eyes weighs about 45 pounds. Sam I Am is housebroken, crate-trained, walks pretty well on a leash, rides well in a car and is starting to learn all of his basic commands.

Sam I Am was purchased and then ignored by his previous owners, and so we have been working to teach him his basic social skills. He is a fast learner, though, and is as sweet as they come. Sam I Am loves people and he loves other dogs, but he still gets so happy and excited when meeting new dogs that he needs a human to manage his introductions – he has no respect for anyone’s personal space! He is a high Velcro, high energy young guy who likes to stay active during the day but is a great snuggler when play time is over. He has not been cat-tested.

The ideal home for Sam I Am is with an active family who will continue his training and who is looking for a jogging, running, swimming, ball-playing, wrestling partner. Fenced yard? Please. Another dog to play with? Great! Children? Older children only, as he is so exuberant that he will knock young children down with his greeting. Sound like the young dog of your dreams? Apply today!

Sam I Am is fostered in Birchwood, TN

Cali is a seriously cute purebred female Aussie in search of a new home. She is just over 4 years old, a beautiful blue merle with one blue eye who is a bit overweight at 35 pounds. We know that Cali is housebroken, great with people and absolutely loves to fetch and catch balls, but we will need some time to fully evaluate her personality. Please check back as we will post updates here! Cali is fostered near Charlottesville, VA.    NSXXXX
