Please consider one of these wonderful dogs as your future family member:



Bo is a 22 month old (DOB - July 2016) neutered male Australian Shepherd. He has a docked tail and weighs approximately 65 pounds. He is housebroken and crate trained. He knows sit, shake, paw and roll over. He has lived with other dogs, goats and cows. Cats are unknown. His owner says his most appealing traits are being loyal and very smart. He is being given up because his owner moved out of his parent’s home and he was unable to take him along. Bo would do best in a home with someone with breed experience and with a fenced yard. He is currently living in Woodbury, CT. Only those with approved ARPH applications will be referred to the owner. Please contact ARPH Rep Pat who is screening homes for the owner.





Shiner is a 7 year old spayed female with a beautiful blue merle coat and blue eyes.  She weighs approximately 45 pounds. She knows sit, down, stay and paw.  She loves to play fetch and to swim.  She has lived with children. She is housebroken and crate trained.  There have been fights in the home with the male Aussie so she will be placed in a single dog home.  Cats are an unknown.  She can be reactive to other dogs on leash so will need work on this if walked in a more crowded area.  She is currently living with her owners on Long Island in Suffolk County.  If you have an approved ARPH application contact ARPH Rep, Pat, who is screening homes for the owner.






Cooper is a 7 year old (DOB - 10/21/10)neutered male Aussie . He is a beautiful blue merle with one blue and one brown eye. He gets along with other dogs and has lived with cats, though he can be a pest with them. Unfortunately Cooper has been passed around too many times in his life. He lost his first home when his companion died and his owners felt they couldn’t give him enough exercise. He then went to a home that was allergic to him. He is now being given up due to his feeling anxious with the very young child in the family. He knows come, sit, paw, lay down and loves to play fetch. His current owner reports that he hikes off leash and also walks well on a leash. He can be barky so would not be suitable for apartment living. He is currently living in Stockbridge, MA. If you have an approved application and are interested in Cooper please contact ARPH rep, Pat, who is screening homes for the owner.
