Caramel is a sweet, little 2.5 year old 38 pound red tri Aussie with unique coloring who's ready to find her forever home.

Caramel is a professional cuddler and adores her person. She is a true velcro Aussie and will follow you around all day!  She is excited to meet people and can be a little crazy around other dogs. She would be best in a home with no other dogs or confident males.   She’s working on learning how to walk well on a leash but will still need some practice and a patient owner. She would love a large, fenced yard to run around in!  She knows some basic commands like sit and stay and is eager to learn!  She loves toys and playing ball.  She enjoys children, but can be a little excited when meeting people so she will need a home with children ages 12 and up.

She’s 100% housebroken and crate trained, although she doesn’t seem to need the crate in her foster home. She is lovable and is easily won over with attention and treats. The way to her heart is definitely with love and food!

Caramel is up-to-date on all of her shots and is on monthly prevention for fleas/ticks and heartworms. She is spayed and microchipped. She is being treated for a possible allergy (or stress related) with some hair loss on her back paws.

If you appreciate epic displays of happiness when you return home, this sweet girl might be the Aussie for you!  If you think you might be the right one,  please submit an application from our website. If you are already approved, please contact Amy .



Meet Mollie, not officially in the ARPH program but is listed as a courtesy to the owner.  Per information provided by the owner, Mollie is a black tri with one blue eye, ten years young, weighs about 50 pounds, is housebroken, crate-trained, spayed and up to date on vaccinations.  Mollie has become anxious and uncomfortable with the multiple grandchildren who are often around. They feel it's the best and safest option to rehome her.  Mollie is excellent in the house and knows several commands-sit/lie down/rollover/ beg/stay/ no.  She has never lived with another dog or cat, so she would need to be an only pet.  She does pull on leash and barks at other dogs when the owners walk her, but she's better with the professional dog walker who takes her several times a week.  Mollie is reported to be a sweet, velcro Aussie that would be a wonderful companion in the right home. She is located in Pittsburgh, PA.  Please contact Kay(who is screening applications for the owner.



Pike is a sweet 7 year old red merle on the larger side at 55 pounds.  He knows some commands, walks great on and off a leash and is neutered and up to date on vaccinations.  He gets along great with smaller dogs, cats and all kinds of small animals, but is sometimes afraid of dogs his size and bigger. He will need at least one, if not two doggie siblings in the home.  He does not have much experience with children, so 12 years and older please.  His owner is looking for him to have a better life in a larger living space.  He is a very loving, empathetic dog according to his owner.

Pike is currently living with his owner in Solomons, Maryland.  ARPH is screening applications for the owner. Apply at or email Amy if you already have an approved application.

Watch Eve in Action

Eve's Day at the Beach

Are you looking for your next agility partner? Are you looking for a dog to do Rally with? Can you handle an Aussie who has Border Collie energy? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions then meet Eve, ARPH #14325. Eve is A LOT of dog in a small package. She is a 2 year old red merle spayed female. She was surrendered to ARPH because her owner did not feel she could give Eve what she needed, which is EXERCISE - EXERCISE - EXERCISE. She is a very athletic dog who would excel at dog performance sports. Due to her energy level she is not for the average home that is simply looking for a new pet.

Eve does like to train and has learned come, sit, down, wait and off since being in foster care. Her foster mom is currently working on heel, stand, stay, target and bow. We are looking for a home that will continue this progress.

Eve is very people oriented and does not need a doggy playmate, but could live with a male. She will not be placed in a home with cats. Due to her energy level and prey drive a traditionally fenced yard is required.
Eve will not be placed with children under 12.

Eve is crate trained and will rest quietly in one. She is basically housebroken. Her foster mom is working on having her provide a clear signal when she needs to go out.
Applicants who have previously owned herding dogs will be considered on a case by case basis. An application, vet and personal reference checks and home visit are required prior to being approved to adopt through ARPH. Please note that our dogs are placed in homes that can meet their individual needs. If already approved please contact
Pat. If not yet approved please submit an adoption application. Eve is being fostered on Long Island.
