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.





Maggie is an approximately 2 year old spayed black tri female with a full tail. She weighs about 43 pounds, is housebroken and crate trained. Due to allergies she needs to be fed grain free food. She has begun agility training at the beginning level. Maggie has a lot of prey drive so needs a fenced yard, she will NOT be placed in a home with cats or other small animals. She has also had some squabbles with the Border Collie in the home so will be placed as an only dog. Homes with children 10 and older will be considered. Her owner describes her as "an amazing dog with people, very affectionate, fun, intelligent and eager to please". She is currently living with her owner in Middletown, NY. If you have an approved ARPH application contact ARPH Rep, Pat, who is screening homes for the owner.





Milo and Puppy are 7-year-old litter mates and best friends. They go everywhere together and love having a lot of space to run around and play. They are highly motivated/very excitable and will do anything for treats! Milo and Puppy have a lot of love to give and are very good with children but would prefer to be the only dogs in the house. Milo is very outgoing with strangers whereas Puppy needs a little more time to get comfortable around them, but once he opens up he is a whole different dog! They are very interactive and eager to greet you after a long day of work! Both boys are neutered, housebroken and crate trained.  If interested and approved adopter please contact




This beautiful boy is Magnum, a 7 1/2 year old neutered male, weighing about 65 pounds, whose family must give him up due to health issues.  He is vaccinated and heartworm negative, housebroken, crate trained, knows sit and loves belly rubs and giving kisses.  He will alert bark when someone comes to the house but loves to meet new people.  He has lived with an older female dog but has never lived with cats.   No small/young children, Magnum is an exuberant boy that might be too much for little ones.  He gets excited in the car but eventually settles.  He would travel best in a crate.  A buddy for him to play with would be great to help burn off some of his energy, and a traditionally fenced yard is a must.  Magnum lives near Oswego, NY.  If you are interested, please contact Kay who is screening homes for the owner .
