Story
Eli is a 6.5 year old Aussie who his people made the hard decision to surrender after he began nipping their toddler. They worked with trainers and don’t believe the behavior was intended to harm their child, but herding instead. Despite their best efforts, nothing was able to change his behavior. They reached out to us over a month ago and drove all the way from Georgia to find a rescue they believed would do right by him and keep him in a low-stress environment. We haven’t known Eli long but from what we have seen and have been told about him, he’s a super sweet and loving boy and should have no trouble finding a new forever home! As long as there are no small children, he’s the perfect dog! He’s crate trained, house trained, and has basic obedience. He’s very food motivated but due to his weight we recommend keeping extra snacks to a minimum. He’s friendly to all humans and good with smaller dogs. He’s good with bigger dogs too after a proper introduction, but he’s a bit fearful of them at first. Cats and other small animals a no-no though. He does need to lose some weight, but aside from that Eli is totally healthy and ready to be adopted! He’s microchipped, neutered, UTD on his vaccines, prevention, heartworm tested negative, and has a negative fecal test.

Story
Pipper is an energetic, loving female 5ish Aussie/mix (not sure the second breed). My daughter got her as a puppy however when she was almost 2 my daughter moved to Colorado for college. My home was to be a temporary home but my daughter decided after 2 years she no longer will be taking her. We already had two dogs ourselves and had no intention of adding a third permanently. All three dogs got along great until our female got sick. She had surgery and not sure what happened but Piper and her no longer get along. Because of this we are having to isolate our female which is unfair to her. Pipper is great with our male. Pipper needs a lot of attention and affection and is very loyal. Pipper is very smart and if worked with properly would be an amazing addition. We work 8-12 hours a day and cannot provide her the correct lifestyle that she needs. Breaks my heart to have to rehome her but it’s the best for all.

Story
Ellie is a year and a half year old Australian Shepherd mix (full "ancestry" in photos). She is a sweetheart when she feels safe, but she has serious anxiety that has begun manifesting in aggression. She recently bit someone, and while I'm still trying to figure out what is best for her, I don't know that I am able to provide her with the time, training and attention she needs to help her overcome her issues. I've had her since she was 6 months old. I've known she was an anxious pup from the get go, but I have other animals I care for and I worry about their safety with the way her behavior is escalating. While I love her deeply, she deserves someone who can give her the help she needs. Bad aside, below are her better qualities: - Great with other animals. I have three cats she has never been aggressive towards (even if they swat at her). Also lives with chickens, cows and ducks - Attended doggy daycare; no issues - Loves belly rubs - Somehow never has bad breath (it's shocking)

Story
I am fostering Tonka until he finds a great home. I was pet sitting him and my client could no longer keep him because of a loss of roommate who cared for him while he traveled out of town for work once a week. His work schedule is too demanding to care for Tonka anymore. He is 3-1/2 (will be 4 in August) He is a very sweet dog, well behaved-no grabbing food off counters, etc. He is also extremely intelligent and listens well to commands. He is a fun, active dog-loves to play fetch. He needs room to run -a backyard is a must and/or taken on daily walks. He gets along well with most dogs. I would love to continue pet sitting him on occasion, but after my last dog passed I don’t want to adopt another dog right now.

Story
Meet, Sadie! She is a 2 1/2 year old Miniature Australian Sheppard. She is up to date on all of her shots and is on heart worm medication. Sadie is great with people and children, however not dogs as she can be reactive. She is the sweetest, and most loving dog I have ever had. She is a very energetic spirit and her favorite thing to do is play fetch with a tennis ball. She responds to commands very well and will follow you just about everywhere including the bathroom!! I would prefer if she was placed in a home without any other animals. I would also ask that her new home has a nice backyard that she can run circles around in! I would like to vet applicants throughly.
