Introducing CJ!

This adorable girl is CJ.  She is a very active happy little 7-year-old blue merle female, with a fluffy Aussie tail.  She loves to run with her foster brothers and follows their every move.  CJ also loves to sleep on her foster mom’s lap while they watch TV.  CJ is very affectionate and gives chin kisses.

Her affectionate behavior is especially heartwarming because CJ came from a hoarding situation, so life with only two dogs and a foster mom that’s patient is SO NEW for her.
CJ’s foster mom has been introducing CJ to lots of new things – like leash, crate, and potty training –and CJ is mastering them all!  While she’s slow to warm up to people, she’s learning that strangers are ok and once you earn her trust, she’s yours for LIFE!

Her foster mom recently took her to sheep herding trails where CJ stole everyone’s heart.  Aside from her transport to her foster home, the trip to the trials was likely her longest ride in a car – and she was great!

CJ recently went to her foster mom’s office where she was the center of attention – a little overwhelming at first – so many new people, sights, smells, and sounds, she quickly relaxed and fell asleep under her foster mom’s desk.

The perfect home for CJ is one with another dog – she still needs to learn how to be a dog, and another dog will also help reinforce that humans are ok.  CJ is shy, but there is not an aggressive bone in her cute body.  She needs a patient owner that will continue to help her build her confidence and allow her to become the amazing Aussie that’s beginning to emerge!  CJ is being fostered in Charlotte Hall, MD.  If you’re an approved ARPH adopter, or would like more info about her, please contact Karen

    morning
    Is there a application?

    • Hi,
      if you click on the photo of CJ it will bring you to the ARPH website. All information needed for the application process is included there. You will need to complete an application. Reference checks and home visits are part of the application process.
      Thank you for your interest in an ARPH dog and good luck!

    • Hi,
      the ARPH website has all of the information for the adoption process. You will need a completed application in order to begin the process (application, references, home visit are required). Once those are done you can then inquire about available dogs. Check to make sure you have completed those steps already. Good luck and thank you for your interest in an ARPH pup.

    • Hi again!
All of the reps for ARPH are volunteers with full time jobs outside of their ARPH duties. Sometimes it takes a few days to reach out or to return a call/email. Give it a few day. If no response is received you can try to email again. You should make sure you have a completed application before inquiring about a particular pup.
Good luck! 🍀
