We need crates, etc. to help us with all the dogs we are getting in. We really need your help to help them. Thank you.
* These are dogs that are still with their owners and Ohio Aussie Rescue is posting them as a courtesy and has no knowledge of, or responsibility for, these dogs whatsoever.
We are all good pups who need foster homes.
Mattie is 7 years young, a pretty, laid-back, quiet, blue merle girl with blue eyes and the sweetest disposition this side of the Mississippi. She is great with the cats and other dogs (mostly she just ignores them and hangs with her person). She rides well in a car and loves to go for leisurely walks. Mattie does not like a crate at all -- but doesn't need one. She is left loose with no issues. She loves her treats, sleeping on the bed and just being wherever you are. That is heaven to Mattie.
We would like to see Mattie get a home with someone who is home all day and can give her the attention she so deserves. She is just a wonderful companion. She has not been around children, so we won't adopt her out to a home with young children.
Mattie had some hair loss on her back (flea allergy) but it is growing back now. She is fully-vetted, on heartworm and flea prevention. Please consider this girl who has so much to offer.
Meet Maverick, a gorgeous 3 year old red tri male who was given up because his owners did not have enough time for him.
He is crate-trained (but doesn't need it), housebroken and good with the dogs and cats.
That said, when we first got Maverick, he was so scared it took almost 4 days for him to be completely at ease with us. Now he a typically Velcro aussie who loves his people and wants to hang with his foster parents all the time.
He is very smart, loyal and looking for a home that will appreciate what a good boy he is.
None at this time.
Moose is a fun loving, energetic, and sweet boy. He enjoys running in the yard, exploring new things, and playing fetch with a ball or frisbee. Moose will be your constant companion in anything you are doing in the yard. Whether you are planting flowers, raking leaves, or shoveling the driveway; he wants to be by your side. Moose also wants to be where he can see you and will come check on you if you are out of sight for too long. If you are a runner, get ready! He loves to go on jogs and he's in great shape.
However, he enjoys relaxation as well. Moose can be found lying in the yard during a winter storm or at your feet while watching a movie. He also enjoys doggie spa days. He loves being brushed, getting an occasional bath and he even lets you brush his teeth and clip his nails.
Moose is being rehomed because there is a new baby in the family and Moose is not getting the attention he deserves – and wants. He is kenneled a lot now and not getting the exercise he is used to.
Moose is thunder phobic and really loud noise phobic. The baby’s crying makes him nervous. Moose is crated during storms and is just fine and comfortable there. He also does well with a Thundershirt. He is not destructive, he just paces and gets nervous. We would recommend him as an only dog in an active adult home. Moose isn’t too fond of small dogs and cats are unknown.
He's very trainable. Moose can sit, lay down, and can remarkably read your moods. He's inquisitive and enjoys new games and tricks. Moose stays in the underground fence area when dogs pass by or if a toy crosses the line. He doesn't have a problem staying in his kennel during a normal work day. Moose will go to the door when he needs to go outside and he is well past the destructive puppy stage. Above all, Moose will love you unconditionally and be your best friend.
Moose is almost 4 years old, up-to-date on his shots and is neutered. He is also quite handsome. Who are we kidding, he's rated an Aussie 10. :) He has a lot to offer the right home and the right people. Please consider this boy.
