IMPORTANT: Potential adopters must first complete an adoption application and be approved before contacting any rep about available dogs.



Meet Flynn, ARPH #14445.  This sweet and silly 6 year old found himself with ARPH after the loss of his owner.  He loves people!  After a greeting with a deep bark, he will come to anyone for love.  He is a bigger boy at over 60 pounds, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and neutered.  He knows basic commands like come, sit, down, speak, paw and is very eager to learn with treat rewards.  He is a vocal boy who loves toys and can entertain himself with a squeaky toy.  Flynn enjoys playing with other dogs, but he could be an only dog.  He needs a home with no cats or small animals. He loves to run, so a fenced backyard would be preferred. We don't know how he would do with smaller children, so only homes with children 10 and up will be considered. He loves walks, but does pull some. A harness may be helpful for that.  He'll need someone patient to train him to enjoy walks because he is curious and loves meeting new people. He rides well in the car, is crate and house trained.  Flynn is an amazing dog who had a string of bad luck, through no fault of his own, and is now looking for his forever family.  He is fostered in Anne Arundel County.  If you are interested in seeing if this big boy would fit in with your family, head to ARPH’s application at If you have already been approved contact Amy.

Meet Ollie! This cute 2 year old red tri neutered male is looking for a home where he can be the center of attention.

Ollie is a big fan of treats and happily works for them. He also loves balls and is so cute when he catches one tossed to him. He is also a fan of being brushed. Ollie is housebroken and crate trained.

If Ollie sees another dog or someone running by he can become overly excited. For this reason a physical fence is required. Unfenced homes that are in more rural areas on large pieces of property will be considered on a case by case basis.

Ollie would do best in a quiet home. He will not be placed in homes with children. No kitties for this boy as he has not been exposed to them.

Prior herding dog ownership is required as is a vet reference and a home visit. Ollie is currently living with his owners in the Wallkill, NY area.
If already approved contact Pat who is screening homes for the owner.
