Reba is ready for adoption! 🐶💕

Reba💕

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.

Help ARPH Support Reba

Reba

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!

Meet Sam 🐶💕

Sam is in PA

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.

Ever Thought of Fostering? Maybe This Is the Year to Explore It!

Foster homes are how we keep dogs in need safe during the adoption process.

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

Check out her action video!!

Eve is crate trained and will rest quietly in one. She is basically housebroken. Her foster mom is working on having her provide a clear signal when she needs to go out.

She will not be placed with other females or cats. A physical fence is required as she would chase little critters if given opportunity. Due to her jumping she will not be placed with children under 12. Eve is being fostered on Long Island.

Chelsea’s Video Debut 🐶

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 aussieresc@aol.com who is screening homes for the owner.

If you live near Maryland, you’re in luck!

Pike is looking for a new home

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.

Hey Everyone! Meet Stone!

Stone is in PA

READ STONE’S STORY!!


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.

See Stone in ACTION! 🎥🎬

Calling all Maryland Adopters!!

Caramel…just in time for Fall snuggles 🐶💕

Available for adoption near Baltimore, Maryland.

Caramel is a sweet, little 2.5 year old 38 pound red tri Aussie with unique coloring who’s ready to find her forever home.

Caramel is a professional cuddler and adores her person. She is a true velcro Aussie and will follow you around all day! She is excited to meet people and can be a little crazy around other dogs. She would be best in a home with no other dogs or confident males. She’s working on learning how to walk well on a leash but will still need some practice and a patient owner. She would love a large, fenced yard to run around in! She knows some basic commands like sit and stay and is eager to learn! She loves toys and playing ball. She enjoys children, but can be a little excited when meeting people so she will need a home with children ages 12 and up.

She’s 100% housebroken and crate trained, although she doesn’t seem to need the crate in her foster home. She is lovable and is easily won over with attention and treats. The way to her heart is definitely with love and food!

Caramel is up-to-date on all of her shots and is on monthly prevention for fleas/ticks and heartworms. She is spayed and microchipped. She is being treated for a possible allergy (or stress related) with some hair loss on her back paws.

If you appreciate epic displays of happiness when you return home, this sweet girl might be the Aussie for you! If you think you might be the right one, please submit an application from our website. If you are already approved, please contact Amy .

Meet Mollie 💕

Mollie loves belly rubs!

Meet Mollie, not officially in the ARPH program but is listed as a courtesy to the owner. Per information provided by the owner, Mollie is a black tri with one blue eye, ten years young, weighs about 50 pounds, is housebroken, crate-trained, spayed and up to date on vaccinations. Mollie has become anxious and uncomfortable with the multiple grandchildren who are often around. They feel it’s the best and safest option to rehome her. Mollie is excellent in the house and knows several commands-sit/lie down/rollover/ beg/stay/ no. She has never lived with another dog or cat, so she would need to be an only pet. She does pull on leash and barks at other dogs when the owners walk her, but she’s better with the professional dog walker who takes her several times a week. Mollie is reported to be a sweet, velcro Aussie that would be a wonderful companion in the right home. She is located in Pittsburgh, PA. Please contact Kay(who is screening applications for the owner) at bluedawg7@gmail.com

Introducing Semper! 💕🐶

Meet Semper, ARPH #14343! This 10 years young black tri is neutered and up to date on vaccinations and preventatives. Semper lost his home when his owner retired, had to move, and wasn’t able to care for him anymore. He is crate-trained, although he’s not fond of it, but he doesn’t need it. He is housebroken and LOVES his toys and playing fetch! He’ll drop a toy or ball into the dishwasher when his foster mom tries to load it. Semper loves his foster dad and tolerates the family children, but a home without children would be best. He would be okay with another dog but doesn’t need a canine companion; in fact, he’d probably prefer to have all the attention to himself. Given Semper’s age and possible joint issues, a supplement would help him be more comfortable. He’s not a fan of car rides and will whine, but he was very good at the vet’s. Semper is reserved with strangers and will bark at them, all the while wagging his nubby. Once he warms up, he’s fine, but he’d probably appreciate a home without too many visitors.. No electric or invisible fencing, please. His previous owner said he was good with cats; he doesn’t pay much attention to them. Semper’s great personality will make him a wonderful companion for someone who has a quiet home and a good throwing arm! He is fostered near Douglassville, PA. If already approved contact Kay.

Check out Semper’s tricks!
