Meet Ollie! This cute 2 year old red tri neutered male is looking for a home where he can be someone’s one and only dog. Ollie is a big fan of treats and also balls. Due to his interest in both he would excel in a training class. He also loves to be brushed.
Ollie can be reactive on leash if he sees another dog or if someone runs by. For this reason a physical fence is required. He would do best in a quiet home. He has not been exposed to cats so will not be placed in a home with them. Ollie is housebroken and crate trained.
Prior herding dog ownership is required as is a vet reference and a home visit. He will not be placed in home with children. Ollie is currently living with his owners in the Wallkill, NY area.
A completed and approved adoption application is required prior to meeting Ollie. Adoption application can be found at http://www.arphinc.com/
Meet Flynn, ARPH #14445. This sweet and silly 6 year old found himself with ARPH after the loss of his owner. He loves people! After a greeting with a deep bark, he will come to anyone for love. He is a bigger boy at over 60 pounds, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and neutered. He knows basic commands like come, sit, down, speak, paw and is very eager to learn with treat rewards. He is a vocal boy who loves toys and can entertain himself with a squeaky toy. Flynn enjoys playing with other dogs, but he could be an only dog. He needs a home with no cats or small animals. He loves to run, so a fenced backyard would be preferred. We don’t know how he would do with smaller children, so only homes with children 10 and up will be considered. He loves walks, but does pull some. A harness may be helpful for that. He’ll need someone patient to train him to enjoy walks because he is curious and loves meeting new people. He rides well in the car, is crate and house trained. Flynn is an amazing dog who had a string of bad luck, through no fault of his own, and is now looking for his forever family. He is fostered in Anne Arundel County. If you are interested in seeing if this big boy would fit in with your family, head to ARPH’s application at www.aussierescue.org. If you have already been approved contact Amy.
Meet Olivia, ARPH #14444, a beautiful 7 year old, 55 or so pound, red merle Aussie. She is spayed, up to date on shots, and microchipped. Olivia (also goes by Lucy) finds herself in rescue through no fault of her own after her owner’s death. She LOVES people! She has charmed the neighborhood in her foster home with her gentle manner and beautiful blue-speckled eyes. She has perfect house manners and will make a wonderful companion. She has been left alone both in her crate and loose in the house with no issues. She is not interested in playing with toys or balls but will enjoy a romp with her owner — or a quiet snuggle on the couch. Olivia is very food motivated and will be easy to train — she already knows quite a few commands and is very obedient and has good recall. Although Olivia lived with another dog in her prior home, she becomes defensive toward other dogs on her walks – so we believe she will do best as an only dog. She should not be placed in a home with cats or small animals. She seems to do well in a car. Olivia will do best in a home with a fenced yard and older children who are Aussie savvy. She is being fostered in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. If you are interested in seeing if this beautiful girl will fit in your home, please apply at aussierescue.org. If you have already been approved contact Amy.
Meet Moxie, ARPH #14505, a spunky little girl with plenty of energy to spare! At only nine months old, she is still full of puppy and is looking for a forever home that will give her lots of love, structure and exercise to help her grow into the best dog she can be. Bought as an adorable puppy from a pet store and living in a tenth floor apartment in a city, Moxie turned out to be more dog than her owners could handle, though they tried their best. Moxie weighs about 43 pounds, is spayed and up to date on vaccinations and preventatives. She is crate trained, housebroken, and knows ‘sit’ and ‘paw’. She is learning to sit and wait for her meals. Moxie can be reserved with strangers but will warm up quickly. She’s not a fan of being brushed. Like any puppy, Moxie doesn’t really know when she’s pushed a boundary too far, so she will need continued help with that in her new home. She is starting to learn how to walk better on a leash and also that there are rules to follow which are not made by her. She’s a smart girl and is working hard at learning how to be a good family member. She loves toys and will hide them in various places in the house. She also loves to be outdoors or just to look out a window. Moxie is very active and needs a job on which to focus her energy. She is very quick and agile and loves to chase balls, so she might be a good candidate for a dog sport.
Moxie’s exuberance and puppy energy could be a bit much for young children, so she’d be better with those who are over 10-12. She has not lived with cats or another dog. Moxie is looking for an experienced owner who will provide the continued structure and training she’ll need. A traditionally fenced yard is a must for her so she can zoom around to her heart’s content! An obedience class is also a requirement. Moxie is fostered in SE PA. If you think you might be just the right fit for this busy, smart, happy girl and are already approved, please contact Kay.
We need help! ARPH has been receiving multiple placement apps a week for Aussies in need of new homes and we do not have foster homes to accept all the dogs.
Did you know that fostering isn’t a full time commitment? Did you know that you work with a rep who will help you with your foster Aussie? Did you know you have the support of other volunteers? Did you know that ARPH pays for all vet bills? Did you know that all dogs are evaluated before being accepted into ARPH?
Fostering is a big commitment but it’s so rewarding. If you are on the fence, ask questions. We need the amazing foster families to save the Aussies in need.
If you have any questions please contact us at email@example.com or contact the rep in your area.
Meet Reba, ARPH #14502! This sweet 6 year old found herself with ARPH after the loss of her owner when other family members were unable to care for her. If that wasn’t bad enough, Reba suffers from epilepsy, which fortunately is controlled by medication costing around $30 monthly. She is on the moderate end of the energy scale, although that may change when she loses some weight. Reba is a little pudgy at 58 pounds, but her foster home has started her on the road to a healthier weight. She loves going for walks and playing ball in the yard, although she needs a little guidance in how to bring it back again. She is always willing to play but also settles down nicely once playtime is over. She is housebroken, crate-trained, rides well in the car, and is learning to walk nicely on leash. Reba does have a tendency to guard some resources so will need an experienced owner. A traditionally fenced yard is a must; no electronic or invisible fences will be considered.
Reba is very willing to meet new people and is very happy to sit and be petted for as long as her new friend wants to! She’s never lived with other dogs, cats, or children, so an adult-only home with no other pets would be best for her. She loves stuffies and will shake and toss them around.
If you are looking for a sweet, quiet companion, Reba may be your girl. She is fostered in southeast PA. If you have an approved adoption application contact Kay.
Meet Reba, ARPH #14502! This sweet 6 year old found herself in ARPH after the loss of her owner when other family members were unable to care for her. If that isn’t bad enough, Reba suffers from epilepsy, which fortunately is controlled by medication. Before placing her, her rep wanted to be sure that all was well, so some bloodwork and tests were done which resulted in additional bills. She loves going for walks, playing with toys, and will be a lovely, quiet companion for the right person. If you can help defray some of the extra expenses, Reba(and ARPH!) would greatly appreciate it! Our donation page is here. http://www.aussierescue.org/Donate Thank you so much!
This handsome boy is Sam, ARPH # 14345, a three year old neutered blue merle male weighing in at about 45 pounds. Sam was loved by his former family, but some life changes brought him to rescue. He is housebroken, crate trained, rides well in the car, knows sit, is working on down, and is very sweet. Sam is in the moderate range of the energy scale, although he will still need regular, consistent exercise. He settles nicely in the house. He doesn’t seem to be interested in toys or chewie things in the house, but he does love a good game of “fetch the stick or small Wubba” in the yard.. He doesn’t like to give either up but will for a treat. He is VERY food motivated! Sam loves long walks. But because he wasn’t walked on leash much, he would probably benefit from a harness. Sam has a tendency to put his paws on things(table, sink, counter), so he’s a wanna be counter surfer. He will get off when told. Sam will do best in a quiet home without much coming and going, a traditionally fenced yard to keep him safe(He likes to run around.), no cats and no children under 16. Sam has never lived without another dog but might be able to be an only dog in the right home. He’d probably like a canine companion, though, but only if it’s a female. He is very willing to please, loves his person and wants to be close by at all times. Sam is fostered near Honesdale, PA. If you think you might be a good match for Sam, please contact Kay.

Find room in your heart and home for a brief time to help an Aussie in need. http://www.aussierescue.org/volunteer Become a rep – Reps are the center of the rescue activities in the area. They are the people who approve adoption applications, determine if a dog is suitable to enter the ARPH program, and are the ones who work with the volunteers in an area.Reps are the center of the rescue activities in the area. They are the people who approve adoption applications, determine if a dog is suitable to enter the ARPH program, and are the ones who work with the volunteers in an area.Reps should have strong leadership skills, be a team player, and be organized. They should also have Aussie experience and understand dog behavior. Reps MUST have some RESCUE experience. We are presently in need of Rescue Reps in Delaware, Maine, New Hampshire, New York (western), Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia. Please message us if you would like more information. Donate – we are very appreciative to those of you who financially support us. http://www.aussierescue.org/donate Share our posts on Facebook. Sharing our dogs, our fundraisers and our requests for volunteers helps us more than you can imagine. Alert us to Aussies in need. Share information about ARPH with owners who need to place an Aussie.
If our rescue Aussies could speak they would say they are very thankful for their foster homes. Without these selfless people rescue organizations cannot exist. We are always in need of additional foster homes so the job of fostering does not just fall on a few.Our Fosters are our saviors. We depend on them heavily to give us more information about the Aussie for whom they are caring. These volunteers care for ARPH dogs in their own homes. They are often called upon to have dogs vetted, do some training and socializing of the dogs, and speak to potential adopters. They work hand in hand with the reps, as they are the ones who get to know the dogs the best. Their evaluation of a dog’s personality and temperament helps the rep place the dog in the most appropriate home. Some experience with training is very useful. Veterinary expenses are reimbursed; foster homes supply food and most importantly LOVE to homeless Aussies.http://www.aussierescue.org/Volunteer/-Volunteer-Application

Chelsea is a 1 year old (DOB 9/23/20) spayed blue merle female. She is looking for a new home as she and the other female in the home have been getting into fights. She is a smaller Aussie at 30 pounds. Her owner reports that knows “sit”, “wait” for “free” when door is opened and has great recall. Her owner also says she is a very playful dog. Chelsea is a high energy dog who would do best in an active home where she will get exercise on a daily basis. She would also benefit from a training class and may do well in a dog sport such as agility. A home is being sought with a traditionally fenced yard so that Chelsea has the opportunity to run off some of her energy. She has not been exposed to cats so will not be placed in a home with them. She has not lived with children so only homes with children 12 or older will be considered. She does appear to like other dogs, an active male companion will be considered. Chelsea is currently living with her owners in Westport, CT. ARPH is screening homes for the owner . An ARPH application www.aussierescue.org will be required as well as a home visit. If already approved contact Pat at firstname.lastname@example.org who is screening homes for the owner.
Pike is a sweet 7 year old red merle on the larger side at 55 pounds. He knows some commands, walks great on and off a leash and is neutered and up to date on vaccinations. He gets along great with smaller dogs, cats and all kinds of small animals, but is sometimes afraid of dogs his size and bigger. He will need at least one, if not two doggie siblings in the home. He does not have much experience with children, so 12 years and older please. His owner is looking for him to have a better life in a larger living space. He is a very loving, empathetic dog according to his owner.
Pike is currently living with his owner in Solomons, Maryland. ARPH is screening applications for the owner. Apply at http://aussierescue.org/Adoption or email Amy if you already have an approved application.
Hi! My name is Stone ARPH #14344, but my foster mom likes to call me Gemmy because I’m really a gemstone! Nothing cold and hard about me, though! I’m seven years old, neutered, and up to date on all my shots and things. I weigh about 55 pounds but will probably trim down a bit with all the activity in my foster home. I enjoy hanging out with my foster family, going for walks, and playing with balls and frisbees. I know all the basic commands like come, sit, down, stay and drop. I’m super polite in the house and don’t jump up on people or furniture. I bark, but only when something important happens. At night, I sleep near my family or on a dog bed downstairs. During the day, I’ll happily nap near you while you work or do important stuff around the house. You might wonder how a gem like me ended up as a foster boy. Well, my first family had some life changes which were quite upsetting to me. I’m actually a pretty sensitive fellow; I startle easily and get scared. I’ve been known to run like the wind at some little thing I wasn’t expecting. It is super important that I have a fenced yard at my new house. I may never be able to be off leash outside a fenced yard. Sometimes I hide a bit and peek around corners to make sure everything is ok. I’m sure I’ll get more secure in a calm household with confident people who understand. But for now, I need safety, patience, and love. I get along fine with my foster brothers, but we don’t really play together. So I’d be fine as an only dog. Little dogs and little kids are not a good idea, but I’m okay with cats. If you are interested in a handsome fellow looking for a calm, loving home, maybe we will be a match. I’m being fostered near State College, PA, and will be available after October 29. Thanks for the interest and be sure to check out my video. If you are an approved adopter, please contactKay.
