ARPH #14248

This beautiful blue merle is Bluebell. Bluebell was raised with two other sisters in Idaho, until her owner could no longer care for the dogs. She is 9 years old, weighs 70+ lbs, is spayed, heartworm negative and is an easy dog to introduce into your home. She is very friendly, with lots of life in her. That being said, she has achieved the art of a nap.

When Bluebell first came into foster, she liked to pull some on a leash but has learned not to do that. She is a very smart girl, but then, of course, she is an aussie. Very good with other dogs and cats. And loves meeting people. In her foster home, she lives with another dog, three cats and chickens. Sometimes other dogs come and go and she is fabulous with everybody.

She knows basic obedience. Loves her walks. Bluebell is just waiting for the right home so she can enjoy the last third of her life and give undying loyalty to her person(s).

And Bluebell doesn’t just wag her tail – she does a full-body wag. Just warms your heart to see that full-body wag. And she smiles!

Bluebell is currently in Boise, Idaho. Come have a look into those eyes that touch your soul.

If you are an ARPH approved adopter and interested in Bluebell, please submit an adoption application.



  Super Cooper
ARPH #14208

Cooper is looking for a cat and male dog free home (he chases cats and can be snarky with other resident male dogs but is non-reactive on leash; he has gotten along well with females). Such a sweet pup, and he loves people and wants to be with you always!

Cooper is 5 years old and has hip dysplasia so will never be a PNW adventure dog. He'll love just walking the neighborhood with you. Cooper needs a quiet home since he is noise sensitive (his previous home was near a gun range and it totally stressed him out). Cooper is neutered, fully vetted and crate trained. He is 57 pounds but could lose a few more.

If you are an ARPH approved adopter and would like more information about Super Cooper please contact Jan at arphinpnw@gmail.com.
