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.
NONE AT THIS TIME
We are all good pups who need foster homes.
Meet Miss Maizie, a beautiful blue merle girl who is close to 9 years young. She was pulled from a shelter in horrible condition. Her hair was so matted she could barely walk -- the mats were the size of pancakes. Her skin was inflamed with urine burns. Her kennel must never have been cleaned... In spite of the pain and discomfort, Maizie loves people and still wiggles that aussie butt for all it's worth.
Maizie has been shaved completely (you can see in the 2nd pix of her above), she is being treated for her skin condition and once that has cleared up, she will get all her shots and be ready to find her forever human.
Maizie's foster mom saw past the matted, smelly mess to the gorgeous girl within. Her foster mom says she is a fast learner, seems to be housebroken, loves her stuffed toys and tries to play catch by dropping them in your lap and waiting for you to throw them. She plays with her two aussie foster brothers just fine.
While Maizie has gracefully slowed down some, she still has lots of aussie spirit and love left. Won't you open your home and your heart to this endearing special girl?
Duke is a drop-dead gorgeous blue merle boy who is very sweet. He will be 3 in January, is up to date on shots and neutered. He is an active lad, seems to love people (he sometimes barks when he first sees them but then starts to wiggle and wiggle), is good with the other dogs and we are still up in the air about the cats. He does not hurt them, but loves to chase them and try to play and the cats hide from him most of the time.
Duke can sit, down, rollover, climb up a small slide and then go down it, and jump through a hula hoop -- what he absolutely cannot do is walk on lead. Sometimes priorities astound us!!! Since he is a big (60lbs.) strong boy, your shoulder is very sore after trying to walk him, and this is definitely something we are committed to work on. However, he is still adorable, fun, and a great buddy regardless. He is housebroken, goes into his crate for some quiet time (he goes in just fine but comes bounding out, lol), rides well in a car and if you aren't watching, will steal stuff off the counters. We are working on that, too. Duke would benefit greatly from training and structure in his life. He does have an off button (he lies in a frog-dog position, which is so cute) and wants to hang out where you are. He would make a great second dog, too.
Duke is a happy guy whose owner is disabled and not getting better, so a tough decision to rehome him was made. He has not been around toddlers or small kids, so we recommend him for families with children over 12. He is used to an above-ground fence and we are hoping to place him in the same environment if we can. While he is not an over-the-top active dog, he is no couch potato either. He needs a home that will commit to keeping him active.
My name is CoCo; I'm a 5 year old black tri girl wih blue eyes and a tail (all the better to greet you with). My owners had to give me up because the resident 8 year old chow did not exactly welcome me into the fold. Just the opposite, sigh. So here I am looking for just the right home.
I am housebroken, crate-trained but don't really like it too much. I used to complain but now I don't. My foster mom usually leaves me loose when she leaves and I am a very good girl. At first I was afraid of the other foster dogs but now I like to play with them. I am spayed, up to date on my shots and am on heartworm and flea prevention. I could stand to lose a couple pounds, shelter life can do that to you.
I sleep on the floor next to the bed. Once I bond, well, that is that. I am looking for a home that is not super busy or active, people who enjoy long walks, like company when they watch TV or read...or nap.
Moose is 5 years old and just a wonderful dog. He was adopted 3 years ago and unfortunately, his owner is moving into senior housing and is unable to take Moose with her, so he was returned to us.
He is neutered, has all his shots and is nothing but a happy camper. He likes the foster dogs and is good wih the cats. What Moose really enjoys is his person.
He is friendly, affectionate and just an all round good guy. He is a perfect companion. He is completely housebroken, good in a crate but doesn't need one. He does, however, love to sleep in the bed with you, which is a good thing in this weather; he is better than an electric blanket!
Moose is great in a car, loves walks and is very affectionate -- and loves to be loved on. If you are looking for a very good dog, one that will be sweet, gentle and your BFF, consider this wonderful dog.
We very recently got this dog into rescue. While she is definitely a cutie, she is also very much a work in progress.
Her background: she was pulled from her owner because of cruelty. She is only 18 months old but for a greater part of her life she lived under a truck. Not by choice. She was tied/chained beneath it. She could not leave the space, sit in the sun, play or just run and hop as puppies do. She could only lie there, for the most part. Her body grew over her harness. She was unsocialized and totally afraid.
When she was finally rescued, it took months before she could walk upright, she crouched all the time, since that is how she walked under the truck...
When she was first rescued, she spent lots of time at a vet's office and then went home with him. However, her fearfulness was too much for them, as they had young grandchildren and she was not good with them. She did not know what to make of them or their busyness. Right now she takes things in very slowly, but she is improving.
She still is unsure of people, although she is now temp-fostered with a wonderful guy and she has become his shadow. She is getting better about her food (she was quite food aggressive in the beginning) and is slowly learning to trust. Slowly.
We are hoping that someone out there who does training/behavior modification can help us with her. We want her to make it. We want her to have a chance at happiness and someone who will love her, warts and all. We want her to love humans and to trust us again. Cross all those paws out there, please. We need all the good luck and karma we can get.
UPDATE: This girl is progressing at her own pace; she really seems to like people and wants to be friends but is very cautious. She is not at any wiggblebutt stage yet, but sometimes when you look at her across the room, her little nub wags. That little motion just melts your heart. She is in another foster home right now while her original foster is on vacation. She is a bossie aussie girl for sure. Great with the boys and her BFF is another aussie female but she can get snarky with the other 2 females. She is fine with the cats, curious, but more interested in what they are eating. She is housebroken and good in her crate. We will not adopt her to any home with children under the age of 15. In fact, we prefer an adult only home...
We just got this sweet, young red tri boy. He might be around 18 months - 2 years. He is being fully-vetted, including neutering very soon.
He is super sweet, eager to please and very food motivated. He is extremely affectionate, good in his crate and doing great with his house manners. He is good with the other dogs and mostly just ignores the cats -- unless they are eating. He rides well in the car and just likes either playing with the younger dogs or be where you are.
We will update with more pictures and let you know when he has been neutered, has had all vaccs and has been heartworm tested.
Meet Ms. Pippa, the cutest, cuddliest girl in town. She is a two year old blue merle girl who is just a hoot. She is fully-vetted, including being spayed. She is heartworm negative and is on prevention. Pippa weighs around 36 pounds and has one brown and one mostly blue eye.
She sleeps at your feet (very good for this winter season) and follows you everywhere. She is bff with the red tri boy we just got in, they play so well together. She was raised with another dog, so being a lonely only may be tough for her, unless her person is around a lot.
We have this delightful girl for one reason and one reason only -- she does not do well in a car and the people who had her tried everything (including meds from the vet to every homemade remedy around) to try to help her but it was no go. They had a camper and travelled every weekend and the wife was pregnant with their 3rd child and it was just too much for them.
When we transport her, we don't feed her but she does drool a lot (whether crated or not). We solved that issue by buying bibs and that seems to keep her dry! She doesn't mind the car, in fact, she jumps right in to go anywhere with you - and then jumps right out when you reach your destination.
Needless to say, we are enchanted by Pippa and her cuteness. And her loving ways.
