​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

Gummy Bear

Bear is a male 4 year old blue merle who came to rescue from a hoarding situation. That has not diminished his ability to love or be a typical Aussie, though! Bear is housebroken, crate trained and is neutered. He is current on all his vaccinations and is microchipped. This is a sweet loving dog who wants nothing more than to be with his person. He is great with other dogs and would love to play, but Bear would probably thrive being the only dog. He craves attention and love and would like it to be all about him! He will watch cats but has not offered to chase or bother them in any way.  

He loves his toys. He will throw them in the air and then pounce on them when they land on the floor/ground. He also loves to play ball and will chase it pretty much as long as your arm holds out! Bear is very food driven and will do pretty much anything for a treat. (He loves the soft, chewy ones)

Bear is learning basic commands now and have mastered sit and shake. We are working on others. This guy is smart!  

Bear is a bit timid around new people and situations but warms up very quickly. He is being exposed to as many new sights and sounds as possible and walks extremely well on a leash. He also loves car rides and won't complain if you go through Dairy Queen for a pup cup! Bear wants to find his forever home and be able to settle in with his forever family. He is being fostered near Columbus Ohio. Contact Aussie@aol.com for information.  Bear is fostered near Dayton Ohio.
Fowler is a 1.5 yr old black tri male with tail and 1 and 1/2 blue eyes.  He is good with all dogs and people.  Fostered near Dayton, Ohio. NS3161

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
