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.

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
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.
