Story
Afu was born in late August, 2023 and was the runt of the litter. Afu's incredibly adorable and loving with family, a true "velcro dog". He's quite aggressive/fearful of strangers but warms up fairly quickly with treats and careful approach. Intelligent but stubborn and has a mind of his own. He's fairly chill but loves exploring and requires daily active engagement & mental stimulation. His lack of recall, aggression towards others and resource guarding has been a cause of concern and thus, we're looking to rehome him to a home more equipped to train him. He does bite seriously if he feels threatened and wouldn't do well in a house with young children. His ability to deal with other animals is unknown and he's currently not neutered. Fully housetrained and knows basic commands. Please reach out if you have any questions! He will need to be picked up and will come with kennel, leash + harness, clipper, bowls, etc.

Meet Leo. This beautiful boy is a 5 year old Aussie mix, weighing approx. 80lbs. Leo is neutered and will be brought up to date on vaccinations. Leo has shown aggression toward another male dog in the house but did okay with female dogs. He has done well with cats but has no experience with other animals. Leo’s household has undergone a change the last few years; there is now a toddler. He is very nervous about this situation and barks at the toddler. His family made the decision to find him a better situation, a home without small children. He is house trained and crate trained. He is located in Tacoma, WA.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Please go to our website for all specific information about this dog.  Our info doesn't transfer over to the adoption sites.  Roxanne is an adorable Aussie mix but with what, we're not sure.  She has wavy but wiry fur so either a wire-haired terrier or a poodle or both in her mix.  She has the beautiful blue aussie eyes also.  She's young and playful.  Crate trained and walks fine on leash.   Who's looking for a doll like this to make a life-long commitment to?   Prior to adoption, our dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped and parasite treated/prevented.  Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.July 12, 2024, 9:11 pm

Aberdeen Scottish Terrier Rescue is a registered 501(c)3 Web Site: www.aberdeenstr.com ***MUST SUBMIT APPLICATION before we will respond to email or phone inquiries. Thank You for your cooperation*** Please read listings fully to the end before applying for one of our beloved rescues. WE ARE NOT A SHELTER; WE ARE AN ALL-VOLUNTEER RESCUE WITH FULL-TIME JOBS. Please do not contact us to look at a dog. We will contact you once we have reviewed your completed application if we think your home might be a good fit. A reference check, phone interview, and home visit will be completed before meeting an adoptable dog. We work quickly. Please do not submit an application until you are ready to bring a new furry family member home. Expect your references to be contacted shortly after submitting your application. We adopt out to homes in WA state, but require that you are present for the meet and greet in Newcastle, WA. Our adoption fee is non-negotiable. The adoption fee is due on the day of adoption in the form of a check, Zelle, or cash. We no longer accept PayPal because of the percentage they take & their fees but if the potential adopter is willing to pay the fees & charges we will accept PayPal. What these sweet souls see, hear & endure is incomprehensible. Ellen was part of a breeder dumping dogs. He actually wanted Ellen & many others gone immediately in Indiana but was willing to work with us. We have to move fast because unfortunately in these situations, when they want them gone, there is no messing around for their health & safety. Being breeding dogs they are money making machines only & their time had come to an end with this breeder. Beautiful Ellen & her other 9 friends were living outside all day & night in cages. Once we knew about them, there was no way we were leaving them there. We organized to rescue all of them & our wonderful team drove & picked up everyone. Of course the were all so filthy & stinking so badly & some were matted to the skin & needing grooming immediately & medical care. He did not care & just wanted them gone. Rescuing the breeding dogs is an extremely expensive situation each time & it involves a lot of expenses in transportation & so much medical. Now the real healing, love & devotion could begin & show Ellen how she is supposed to be loved & adored in a loving forever home & her other friends. Ellen was bought back to WA state where she is now so happy to be here & can’t wait to find her new loving devoted forever family. Beautiful & gentle Ellen. She is such a sweetheart even though humans have been so bitterly cruel to her. Her world changed within hours of a phone call & a car ride along with her friends. No more living outside for this girl in a cage. When she arrived she had urine stained fur & we do not know had she ever seen a bath up until then. We see this all the time with the dogs in cages sitting in their own filth & it takes so long to remove the urine stains that have built up. Her foster mum in CO said she was such a sweetheart with them & enjoyed running freely on the property with the other dogs & clearly this was her first chance & freedom but it was a little overwhelming & didn’t want to come inside as she believed she would go into a cage. Her foster mum & dad in WA said she was very sweet & everything was obviously new to her & it would take time, patience & understanding with what Ellen has been through but does not have a mean bone in her body. The dogs gave her joy & comfort in that foster home & she loved to eat. She adored having a comfy bed & big comfy blankets because again the reality is, this is something she did not get to experience ever until she was rescued. Nor toys, love, her own bed. All the things she should of experienced. She slept & slept in her foster home in WA as if she had never slept before. Her current foster mum said Ellen willingly joins the other dogs at meal times now, & eats next Toto the Scottie.  Her appetite has become voracious & she definitely has put on weight.  I haven’t been able to spend much time leash-training her (due to my limitations) but she is getting the hang of a stretchy leash.  When I first got her she would not walk at all with me - just stood there.  She is now responding to treats as rewards, whereas at first she wouldn’t take a treat from me.  Even now sometimes it’s 50/50.  She has not been willing to learn about the dog door, although she stands right at the door & watches the other 3 use it all the time.  She would still need work walking on her harness & leash as it’s all completely new to her as she was never taught until we rescued her. This girl has been good with all different breeds of dogs as they bring her comfort. We have tested Ellen in a daycare environment & is good with men & women & adores the dogs but it’s to overwhelming for her. Ellen rides fine in the car & is good with being bathed. We are looking for a crate free home for this little lady only. Ellen as you can imagine spent the beginning of her life outside in a caged environment. We are also looking for a forever home for Ellen where someone is home during the day or she can go with her people wherever possibly she can go with them. Ellen is looking for a forever home who will cherish her & love her as she should be loved & be patient with her & never give up on her. Ellen has been around many breeds of dogs all shapes & sizes in the rescue & in her foster homes & she is currently with other dogs & enjoys their company. It’s mandatory for her to go to a forever home with another dog present. Ellen forever home must have a fully fenced backyard, this is mandatory. Ellen is roughly 13.5 lbs, she is 2 years old & a mini Australian shepherd, but what she is mixed with we are not sure. She is female, she is spayed by laser by our wonderful vets, she had a dental scale & polish. She is microchipped, she is up to date on her shots, including DHLPP, Bordatella, rabies & dewormed several times. We have spent far more on Ellen with paying for her to get away from a breeder in Indiana to get her out with bringing her to WA with her boarding costs, transport costs, her medical care in WA, getting her spayed by laser, now boarding her in WA etc than her adoption fee even comes close to covering. Rescuing these dogs in these situations is financially draining then getting them all their medical added on too. Ellen has not been around cats since being in the rescue but it’s always up to the new family to be responsible with their animals together & we have not had her around small children so we do not recommend small children nor cats & it’s always up to the family to be responsible with their children & cats. We were not there when Ellen was conceived so we do not know who her parents were & it’s always up to the new potential family to look at the pictures & decide what they think her breed is. As with all of our rescues & Ellen’s friends she will need work on potty training & training, so this should be something the new family would be willing to work on & commit to. Please do not submit an application if you are not willing to commit to one of our rescues care for their whole life & that includes if they need training. Please do not email us asking is Ellen potty trained or available, nor do we ship dogs anywhere as we will not respond. We would never say anyone of our rescues are potty trained. Our rescues need homes where the people are understanding of their past & what they have been through & what they will need in their daily lives & not willing to give up on them & if they do need training in their new home will in fact take them to training & not just say they will when applying. Please only submit an application if you are truly interested in adopting Ellen & going through our process and have read her listing fully to the end & are wanting to adopt. If you are not responsive to our calls, emails or your references do not respond we will move on. Or you waste this rescues time, will remove your application from our system. You must be willing to go through our screening process which includes your references being checked, a phone interview & a virtual home visit via WebEx or zoom due to covid & followed by a meet & greet & if it’s a good fit, up to our discretion. We will only be accepting applications for Ellen who understands her needs & that meet all the requirements for this special sweet little lady. Once we find the right home for each little soul we work fast, within days so the dogs can go to their forever homes in quite a timely manner. We do not hold onto dogs for people as our goal is to save lives & please do not submit an application if you are not ready to adopt. We also cannot respond to every application unfortunately. Ellen has an adoption fee of $1450 & is ready for her truly loving forever home & compassion & understanding of what he has been through.

No more living outside for this girl in a cage. Catherine’s current foster family call her Gigi & they love her very much & would love to adopt her unfortunately one of their children has very bad allergies otherwise she would not be leaving this amazing foster family. She does so well around the small children & her foster mum thinks that she would be good with small children as long as they were calm. She definitely needs a home who will be patient with her during the transition as she loves her current foster family. Her foster mum in CO said she was such a wonderful & very sweet girl & also enjoyed running freely on the property with the other dogs & clearly this was her first chance & freedom but it was a little overwhelming & didn’t want to come inside as she believed she would go into a cage. It was the same originally with her current foster home until that trust was built. Since being in the rescue & her loving foster home Catherine has learnt to be a normal dog & what a normal life is supposed to look like.

This girl has been good with all different breeds of dogs as they bring her comfort. We have tested Catherine in a daycare environment & is good with men & women.

They are quite the dynamic duo. Lolo is big sister and protector - of both her human family and her brother Casey. And Casey is the goofball who wants nothing more than to play and give kisses. They are brother and sister and we want them adopted together. They love to spend their time romping in the yard and taking leisurely walks around the ranch. These beautiful and loyal companions would make great additions to an active family. They are fully vaccinated, neutered and spayed, and microchipped for life. They can be transported anywhere in the US or Canada. ##1939561##

Story
Phoenix is the silliest boy! This 18 mo old, 50lb boy loves to spend his days running around with his friends and twirling and dancing for treats when it’s time to come inside. He is very friendly and enjoys meeting new people so a socially active home would be ideal. He also is wonderful with dogs of all sizes so he’d love to have a playmate in the home, but it’s not required. He is an active boy so if he does not have another dog to run and wrestle with, his people will need to make sure he has plenty of activity every day. And then he’s ready to settle down and cuddle. Although Phoenix does need more training, he is a very smart boy and learns quickly. He is extremely food motivated so lots of training games will be fun. One of his front feet was injured when he was a young puppy so no concrete running for this boy. But lots of walking and hiking would be great! He is fully crate trained and with just a little more help to understand the routine, he’ll be fully house trained in no time. He must have a 5ft or higher securely fenced yard. He has not been tested with cats so no kitties please. Kids must be over 10yrs old
