Yay for Piper! She found her forever home!

Piper is a 7 year old spayed blue merle female with a docked tail, weighing about 40 pounds. She is not getting along with the resident small dogs, so she is looking for a new forever home without them. She is said to be fine with the larger dog, a Lab. Piper is very smart, enjoys playing fetch, and loves to be with her people. If you are interested in Piper and are already approved, please contact Kay, who is screening homes for the owner. Piper is located near Cazenovia, NY. If you have not yet been approved, please submit an application .

Fitz has been adopted! Best of luck to him and his new forever home.

Fitz ARPH #14238 is a two-year-old neutered red tri male who lost his home due to an unfortunate change in family circumstances.  He is up to date on vaccinations and heartworm preventative, housebroken, and crate trained.  He knows a few commands, such as sit, down and come. “Stay” is a work in progress.  Fitz can be reserved until he gets to know you; then he’s a total love bug, according to his foster mom.  His biggest fault is being a committed counter surfer, so that will need work.  Fitz is good with the cats and other dogs in his foster home, he rides well in the car and walks well on leash.  His foster mom says he is pretty low key and would be a great walking or jogging partner; she takes him every day.  If you’re looking for a nice companion, Fitz may just be your boy!  He is fostered near Avoca, NY. Any interested adopters would be required to travel there to meet him.   If you are already approved, please contact Kay.

Introducing Willie and Diana!

Willie and Diana are looking for their forever homes. Their mom, Brie, is an Aussie and their dad, well, all we know is that he had good taste. Willie and Diana are well socialized, friendly, happy 3 month old puppies. They are as house broken as 3 month old puppies can be. They are great with dogs, cats, kids — truly perfect puppies! They love being cuddled and are eager to return the affection. Their Aussie mom Brie was a smaller Aussie, so we think Willie and Diana will also be medium sized dogs. If you’re interested in either puppy, please contact Karen.

Congrats to Max! He was adopted!!

Max is a 3.5 year old, 50lb, black tri male Aussie who was purchased from a breeder (the breeder is not requiring that he be returned to them).  Max is a great dog and very loving, but he’s also extremely high energy and his current owner is finding it difficult to keep up with him and her small children.  If you’re interested in him, click on his photo or the link below, to be redirected to the ARPH website for more information on him and how to start the adoption process.

Can you help Aussies by fostering?

Can you help us out by fostering?  The Aussies could really use your help.  Just fostering one dog a year can make a hug difference.  ARPH NEEDS YOU! MORE IMPORTANTLY THE AUSSIES NEED YOU!

We depend on Foster Homes to give us more information about the Aussie that they are temporarily caring for. 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, but not required. Veterinary expenses are reimbursed; foster homes supply food and most importantly love to homeless Aussie.

Here’s a short article on what fostering is not

Nikki’s needs have been met. Thank you for all of your support!

Nikki ARPH #13659 has come upon some hard times and could use the help of Aussie lovers. She was surrendered to ARPH after her owner was taken to a nursing home. If that isn’t bad enough she came into rescue in poor shape. She has skin issues which include hair loss and hot spots. Her coat is dry and wiry and very itchy. In addition she will be needing a dental as her teeth are in horrible shape.

The good news is she is sweet as can be and has landed in a wonderful foster home that is committed to getting her back to shape. All she needs now is a little help from those willing to share the holiday spirit with a girl in need.

Please go to our page, http://aussierescue.org/donate and click on the paypal link to donate. Please innclude Nikki’s name and number 13659 in your donation.

Nikki thanks you from the bottom of her heart.

Madeline’s needs have been met. Thank you to all of our supporters. We are greatly appreciative of your help.

Madeline has had a string of bad luck, starting with being being born 4 years ago into a puppy mill.  During the last 4 years she has produced litter after litter of puppies.  Something happened, she was limping, the miller released her to a vet, who released her to Aussie Rescue and Placement Helpline.  Coming to ARPH is the best thing that could happen to Madeline!!!
.
Days after Madeline arrived with her foster home she was taken to the vet.  Her teeth were in horrible shape, she could barely eat.  Her limp was much more pronounced than anticipated.  The vet took x rays to determine the source of her limp, Madeline’s pelvis was fractured.  Now she would need two more surgeries beyond a spay.  First up she needed a dental so she could enjoy eating again and put on some weight.  At 37 pounds, she was under weight.
.
A week after arrival Madeline was scheduled for her dental.  During the pre dental exam, the vet felt a lump near her breast.  The tumor was odd enough that the vet removed it and another lump during her dental surgery.  He sent the lumps out to be biopsied.  It was a long week while we all waited to find out the type of mammary tumor.  Everyone was happy to find out the tumor was benign!!!
.
Next up Madeline will be spayed, no more puppies, for this sweet girl!!!!  Lastly she will need to have a femoral head and neck removal to her left hip.  She will have a long recover, but she will not be in pain anymore.
.
The vet said said she has as strong a will to live as any dog he’s every dealt with. He wants to get her back to normal as soon as possible.  Everyone who meets Madeline sees her sweet disposition and her drive to enjoy life.   Total expenses will be over $6000 to cover Madeline’s surgeries.  Will you please donate to help cover our costs?  Please go to our page, http://aussierescue.org/donate, click on the paypal link to donate.  Include Madeline’s name and number 14132 in your donation.
.
Our many thanks!

“You Might Like” ad links in blog post emails

We’ve noticed that our blog host, WordPress.com, has started inserting ad links into the emails that go out, just under what we post.  Please be aware that ARPH has no connection with, and nothing to do with, the WordPress-inserted ad links, rather it’s become the “price” for the free blog hosting.

Thanks for your understanding.

Volunteers Needed!

If you’re a lover of herding dogs, and would love to help out Australian Shepherd’s, then Aussie Rescue needs you. We are looking for volunteers and adopters who are familiar with the unique traits of herding dogs.

General Volunteers help by doing home visits. screening applications, helping at rescue booths, fund raising and whatever other jobs may arise.

Foster Homes work with dogs in their own homes for a minimum of 2 weeks. They are often called upon to have dogs vetted, do some training and socializing of the dogs, and speak to potential adopters. Experience with training is very helpful. Veterinary expenses are reimbursed, foster homes supply food and most importantly love to homeless Aussies.

See http://www.aussierescue.org or http://www.arphinc.com

We need volunteers in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions … Please help this wonderful breed! And thank you!
