Aurora ARPH #8336

6 month old Aurora is now looking for her forever home. She's a lovely, sweet, energetic puppy who has a high drive and is playful and busy! Aurora came from a difficult situation in northern BC with almost no human contact, and is fearful and anxious around new people, although she has no fear aggression. She is making great progress in foster care and curious and fearless in her foster home and yard where she plays hard. She loves her foster mom and the resident dogs, and is doing better with her foster dad. She has a nice off-switch and likes naps.

Aurora is a great puppy who needs a forever home who is familiar with high energy/high drive herding dogs, who will support her continued progress in overcoming her fear of people, building her confidence when outside her familiar environment, and provide the exercise and training she needs to reach all of her potential. She's a little too focused on cats, so needs to go to a cat free home.

If you are interested in this sweet girl, an application is required to get the process started.


      

       


 

Baxter ARPH #13585


Baxter is an active, curious 2-3 year old male Australian Shepherd. He’s crate trained, potty trained, rarely barks, loves to ride in cars and thinks other dogs & people are great. He’s smart, wants to please and willing to learn for treats or affection (just look at that face!). Baxter has a pretty good sit and down when treats are involved. He needs to work on other commands, but is a very willing learner. He is learning not to jump up or invite himself to join the family at the table, but he still needs consistency to help him become a good citizen. The Bax loves to snuggle and play with toys both indoors and in the yard, and will likely make a great agility dog. He’s learning to walk on an easy leader and, provided he gets enough exercise, does pretty well.

Baxter isn’t aggressive with dogs or people but wants to chase cats & squirrels when on a leash and probably has a high prey drive. He is unafraid of cars, although he hasn’t chased any while out on walks; he doesn’t understand the danger and will walk toward a moving car. He escaped from his first home on several occasions and his foster home noticed that he will find the weakness in a fence if he can, especially if he can dig under it and he'll likely clear a fence under 5'. Baxter needs a home with active people who have experience training Aussies and can provide consistency & training. Another dog would be a plus, but cats are probably not safe with him. If you are interested in Baxter you can apply at aussierescue.org, and we can get started on vet, reference and home checks!
