Meet Mila! Could she be your Valentine?

Miss Mila is in Maryland

Preview(opens in a new tab)

This adorable red tri puppy is Mila.  She’s seven months old and an absolute delight.  Mila has had a lot of change in her young life.  Her original family decided she had too much energy for them and turned her into a shelter in rural Virginia.  Luckily, an ARPH volunteer works with that shelter and we happily brought Mila into our program.

Like any Aussie puppy, Mila has a lot of energy, but she’s incredibly well socialized and does great with her older foster brother and sister.  Typical of many young Aussies, she’s a little timid when meeting new people, but she warms up quickly.  She’s curious about her foster cat siblings as they are very new to her.  If Mila tries to chase them a quick call by her foster mom brings the chase to an end.

Mila rides well in the car and does fine on her leash — her foster mom works with her daily and she’s learning from her foster brother and sister.  But remember, she’s a puppy and will need to continue her training.  

Sweet Mila is crate trained.  When she’s in her crate she snuggles with her toys and her baby blanket.

Mila currently weighs 36 lbs and she’s pretty tall.  Her foster mom thinks she’ll grow into a beautiful lean girl!

She is very affectionate and enjoys some good couch time cuddling.  She can easily entertain herself by going into the toy bin and pulling out toy after toy.  Outside, Mila loves to run and play and is super fast!

The perfect home for Mila is one that will be dedicated to continuing her training and understands the needs of an Aussie puppy.  She’s great with other dogs, but would be fine as an only dog IF there is plenty of human interaction and companionship.

Mila is being fostered in Frederick, Maryland.  If you’re an approved ARPH adopter, contact Karen.

Introducing Becky. She is located in PA. 🐶💕

This adorable black tri girl is Becky, a one year old spayed female, about 35 pounds, who is up to date on vaccinations.  Becky is housebroken, crate trained, very food-motivated, and LOVES tennis balls and playing fetch!  She is a smart, active girl that loves to run and play, and she knows sit, stay, down, paw, come, and look.  She gets along well with the four year old male Aussie in the home but is unknown with cats.  Becky’s family loves her very much, but she is not good with the three children, which is why she needs a new home.  She does have some resource guarding issues with her food and high-value treats and definitely needs an experienced owner who will give her a suitable outlet for her energy and provide rules and boundaries.  Becky would be best in a traditionally fenced yard to keep her safe.  She is located in southeast PA, near West Chester.  If you think you might be able to provide what she needs and  are already approved, please contact Kaywho is screening homes for the owner.Pat Dwyer

Hey Everyone! Meet Dianna! 💕

Pretty Dianna

This pretty girl is Dianna, one of Brie’s puppies from our summer of puppies :). Sweet Dianna is 7 months old and back in our program, through no fault of her own. Sometimes things don’t work out, and sometimes adopters don’t believe us when we tell them Aussie puppies are ACTIVE puppies.  Dianna is SUPER SMART, her foster mom thinks she will excel at agility.  Dianna would also be a terrific hiking partner and she’d love to hang out on the sofa and watch moves with you!

She’s a little shy at first, but warms up quickly. She currently prefers women to men. This little princess is around 30 lbs and would do best in an active and patient home. She’s great with other dogs and can play for hours.   Dianna’s mom, Brie is an Aussie, and her dad as we like to say, had great taste! The great thing about pretty Dianna is she has all the Aussie smarts and activity, but NOT the SHEDDING! Her sleek, smooth coat is super soft, which make her especially cuddly. Only ACTIVE homes should apply. If you think you can give this princess the home she deserves, please apply to adopt Dianna at Dianna is being fostered in Williamsburg, VA.  For more information, please contact Karen.Pat Dwyer
