Jace is a very sweet 3.5 year old boy and on the larger side for Aussie at 70lbs.  He is housebroken, crate-trained, and leash-trained. He follows direction well and has excellent recall.  His foster mother says that he is the easiest dog she has ever fostered.   He warmed up to his foster family in a few short days. He absolutely adores people once he gets to know them and he is a true Velcro-Aussie.  He likes to play and go for walks but is not a high-energy Aussie. He does well with daily walks and interaction like throwing the ball inside if it's raining or snowing out.   He does get overly excited when the doorbell rings and will continue to bark until the person enters the home and he is assured they are not a threat. He has not shown any aggressive behavior towards people or children and just wants to play with people and be loved.

He is a reliable, fun, sweet boy that would enjoy a family that wants to make him a part of their everyday life. Jace is food motivated and knows how to sit, stay, shake hands, and lay down.   Jace has had issues with dominance over other dogs in the home and will only be placed in a single dog home.  He has lived with cats in the past but his current foster home does not have any cats so the interaction with cats is really unknown. When he first meets other dogs, he appears fine but will not hesitate to assert dominance if he views another dog has taken his place, toy or food etc. His owner surrendered him because of this issue.  Jace is a lovely dog that would love nothing more than to find his forever family!  Jace will be not be adopted to any family with children under the age of 13.   For more information please contact

Toby is dynamite – an awesome little dog in an old fashioned working dog package.  He’s 3 yrs old, sweet and friendly.  He was found abandoned by a good Samaritan, who took him in over the winter.  Since then, he got into a bit of trouble doing what Aussies love to do – chasing things.  Nothing a fenced yard won’t take care of.  Toby loves people, his nubbie wags furiously when he gets attention and he comes barreling to you when you kneel down.  Toby will be available for adoption soon – he is being fostered in western MD.  If you are interested and an approved adopter, contact Amy.

Mack is a 9 year old (Handsome!) male Black-Tri Australian Shepherd looking for his forever home. The freckles are just an added bonus. He is very polite and smart and loves toys, long walks, belly rubs and cuddling. He is super sweet and loving in his 65 lb wiggly frame. He's got some weight to lose, but he carries it well and is quite handsome at any size. He should weigh closer to 55 lbs with a little exercise and meal portioning (and a few less treats!).

Mack wants his very own family to love, adore and be loyal to. He's a little selfish that way. He wiggles up to everyone he meets.

Mack will do best in a home with no other pets and older children (He could accidentally knock over small children).
He was not well socialized with dogs and cats at an early age. So now at the age of 9, he's only recently been introduced to dogs and cats. He likes to meet dogs when out on walks -- He just does not understand what it means to share. When it comes to food, treats and water ... Mack wants it all to himself. That's when he wants to throw his weight around. He has no idea his size alone will intimidate another dog.

Mack lost his last home of 9 years when they got a new puppy and sent Mack packing. He deserves so much better than that.

With his foster home - he's been learning to behave well with dogs but when things don't go his way - he's just not nice, so ARPH wants to make sure he isn't stressed and can live in a loving environment where he's the center of attention with all his own toys and treats. He will be your best buddy and friend all the days of his life.
Macks is fostered in WV.  If you are interested in Mack, and are an approved adopter, please contact Tami .

Meet Dozer ARPH #13835! He is a sweet 3 year old netuered red tri Aussie looking for his forever home! Dozer is up to date on all vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He now weighs about 40 pounds but should be about 50.   His prior owner loved him but did not have enough time to give him what he needs.  He spent too many hours crated in the house and not enough time exploring the world. He is housebroken, crate trained and good with people. His foster home has a 13 year old son with whom he's been great, so only children ages 12 and up, please, as he's not been tested with younger ones.  Dozer definitely prefers to be in an only dog home.  He was never around dogs and doesn't quite know what to do with them.  His foster family has been working with a trainer to teach him how to walk better on leash and how to interact with other dogs.  He has really come a long way already and loves going for walks now. He could keep up with any activities his future home enjoys as he is an energetic Aussie that always wants to know what is going on.  If someone was interested in training him for agility, he has the skills!  He loves toys, particularly rope ones and will run to chase them but hasn't mastered fetch yet.  He settles nicely in the car.  Dozer needs an experienced owner who understands his need for continued training and regular, consistent exercise.  A traditionally fenced yard will be required.  Any family interested would be able to do follow up training for free with his current trainer, located in Oxford, PA.  Dozer is being fostered in Bryn Mawr, PA.  If you might be able to give this active, sweet boy his forever home, please contact Kay.
