Introducing Nova

Young, energetic single blue female looking for partner(s) for adventures!  I’ve already been through a whirlwind and I’m ready to forge ahead with my forever family.  Although, my foster home is a pretty great adventure all on its own.  There are chickens, goats, other dog friends, a cat, and a human foster “sister”.  Whew! I’ve seen so much in my life already!

I LOVE to play with my Aussie foster brother and human foster sister.  Maybe a little too much, sometimes, but I’m just so full of energy and excitement!  Mom always tells her to, “Distract and redirect” me when I start getting into things I shouldn’t.  It’s pretty easy because I LOVE TOYS!!  I’m always up for tug or chewing squeaky things.  

My doggie foster sister is the same size as me and I *really* want to play with her, but she thinks I’m annoying and wants to be left alone.  Same with the cat.  I’m just too enthusiastic for him.  So sad!  I’m sure he’d just love to wrestle and play fight if he just gave me a chance.  Well, maybe not.  And did I tell you about the chickens!?!  I love to try to chase them! They’re just so different, and I want to check them out, but they run away, so I want to run too.  And the goats!!! I’m not afraid of them, and have all the hallmarks for potentially being a good herding dog.  I get to run around with them a little with my Aussie brother and “direct” them back into their pen.  Did I say how much I love life, and want to play with everything??  I guess it’s just being a puppy.

Speaking of being a puppy, my foster mom says that I’m a very typical Aussie puppy (DOB – 7/23/20).  I have lots of energy to burn and need lots of exercise. And the best thing is that I’m probably going to stay this energetic forever!  My new family will have to be very active to keep me tired and happy. I can’t wait to learn some new fun and exciting games like herding, agility, frisbee, or some other fun stuff. I can’t wait to learn new things and have lots of fun. That being said, she says I’m pretty great for my age.  I’m doing really well with my housebreaking, and learning lots of new things! I sit in my crate and wait to be given permission to leave it, after she’s clipped on my leash.  I sit by the door and wait to be allowed outside. I walk on my leash pretty well, but I really like to hold the leash in my mouth and walk myself!  Of course I do some naughty puppy things, too, like chew on the edge of rugs, or pretty much anything you leave around that I shouldn’t get into. So, my new family is going to need to remember that I need constant supervision, just like an infant, and bring me to puppy kindergarten and obedience classes. Sometimes, when I’m in my crate and missing out on the action, I’m not happy being in there, so I like to yowl!  Mom gives me frozen Kongs filled with my kibble a few times a day when she has to leave for a few hours.  It makes it easier to hang out in the crate.  All in all she thinks I’m awesome and can’t wait to find some awesome new people to love me forever.  Hopefully they are early risers, because I like my day to start by 6am.  Can’t wait to meet my new family!

Nova is being fostered on Long Island, NY. We are looking for a very active home with a traditionally fenced yard, and a young MALE doggy companion for Nova to play with. Due to her age we are looking for a home that will enroll her in puppy kindergarten and plan on other types of training. If you have an APPROVED application please contact Pat.Pat Dwyer

Laker Has Been Adopted! Don’t worry! There are others waiting for you!😉🐶💕

Say hello to Laker. Get your application in now for this very handsome guy, with piercing blue eyes. Laker is looking for a home where he can be the center of the universe. He’s 10 years old, but can run and play with the youngsters. He likes nothing more than to romp, hike and then take a swim.

He does great on a leash and knows basic commands. He’s neutered and up to date on all his vaccinations, he’s a healthy guy!

Laker can be a little gruff and does better with females than with males, he would also be just fine as an only dog, as long as his owner is around to adore him. Laker will need an experienced Aussie owner capable of redirecting him when he gets cranky.

Laker is being fostered in Maryland. If you’re an approved ARPH adopter please contact Karen .

Hey Everyone, Meet Boomer! 🐶

Boomer is looking for a new home! If you’re interested keep reading!


Hi Aussie Lovers – Meet Boomer, ARPH # 14275. This handsome young male, who weighs approximately 50 pounds, is looking for a home to call his own. He would love another young dog that likes to play to be his housemate. He also does well with cats, though does try to get them to run so he can have a quick game of chase.

Boomer needs a home that can commit to daily exercise. He would be a great hiking partner, though those chipmunks look awfully inviting to chase. He does have an “off switch” and is able to settle in the house once he has had his exercise.

We are looking for a home that has taken training classes and doesn’t see it as a chore, but a fun way to connect with your dog. He will be needing an obedience class or two to help polish him into the gem he can become. He may have some potential in the areas of Rally, Obedience, Agility or Barn Hunt.

Boomer was not exposed to much as a pup so is like a puppy in an adult dog’s body. He doesn’t know how to play with toys and will chase a ball, but doesn’t know what to do with it once he catches it. He will require a patient handler who will help him learn the ropes.

Boomer can be clingy and a little insecure so would do best in a home with someone home most of the day. He loves to be brushed, cuddled and loved up and tries to get as close to you as possible, He just LOVES hanging out with his people.

A traditionally fenced yard is required. Boomer has not been exposed to children in foster care so will not be placed with little ones. He is being fostered on Long Island. Anyone interested in him will be expected to travel there along with other family members – both 2 and 4 legged. If already approved for adoption contactPat.

Gentle Senior Looking for Love 🐶💕

ARPH was contacted by a local shelter about Ronnie, this handsome red merle male. Our volunteer said he is without a doubt the sweetest, most gentle soul she has ever met. He’s a true gentleman (of a certain age) that deserves to live out his golden years being pampered. Ronnie has a very sad story. He was picked up as a stray, the owner was contacted and told the shelter he thought Ronnie had wandered off to die. Ronnie’s owner then told the shelter, “you might as well kill him.” He didn’t want him back. ARPH is more than happy to have him! Ronnie MIGHT be 10, he might be older. Regardless, we want Ronnie to know what it’s like to be spoiled, so we are going to be super picky about his next home.

Ronnie still has plenty of spring in his step, the shelter had him romping in their yard the morning our volunteer picked him up. He attaches quickly to humans – he’s a BIG leaner and LOVES attention. He is a little wobbly and stairs can be a challenge. His foster mom is loading him up on good things to help him feel more spry and get ready for his forever home. Ronnie is also a little thin, so she’s going to fatten him up a bit. He also has a cataract in one eye, but it doesn’t seem to inhibit him.

Ronnie is being fostered in northern Virginia. We’ll post more about him as he gets closer to his adoption time. If you think you’re worthy of this fine gentleman, contact Karen @ kaj2600@yahoo.com

Ranger Needs Your Help!


Ranger is asking for your help.  This poor pup was surrendered to rescue after breaking his rear femur by falling off a deck.  His owners were unable to afford surgery and came to ARPH for assistance.   We, of course, stepped up to help him, but now are asking for your help. Repairing his leg cost approximately $5,000, but this sweet, friendly pup deserves to live a pain-free life.  He would be most appreciative of any donations and would be happy to send along some puppy kisses in appreciation for your support.
To donate please go to http://www.aussierescue.org/donate.   Please be sure to indicate the donation is for Ranger ARPH # 14274 so the donation is credited to his bill.
Ranger is on medical hold so no applications are being accepted for him at this time. Thank you for your understanding.
