Ruby ARPH #14417

IN

Ruby is an enchanting 3-year-old 46-pound Australian Shepherd with captivating blue eyes and a heart of gold. This red-headed beauty, born on June 20th, 2020, is a bundle of joy and affection. Ruby is a social butterfly who never meets a stranger. She delights in greeting everyone she encounters with a wiggle butt and a smile. Whether it's passing bikes, people, dogs, or children of all ages, Ruby handles public outings with grace and charm.

Highly intelligent and observant, Ruby is eager to please and thrives on learning new tricks. She walks well on a leash, responding well to commands and even sitting at crosswalks with or without instruction. Her impeccable house and crate manners make her a joy to live with, and she's content to relax in her crate or freely roam the home.

Ruby is an active girl who loves her walks and playing fetch. She craves mental and physical stimulation, making her an ideal companion for someone who enjoys regular daily walks and engaging in dog sports like frisbee or ball playing.

Ruby's ideal home is one where she can bask in the love and attention of her humans. She thrives on being near her people and would do best in a household where she won't be left alone for extended periods. Ruby's previous adopter is seeking a new home for her due to occasional conflicts with another dog in the home over attention. Thus, Ruby would shine brightest as the only dog in a home where she can receive undivided love and care. She will only be placed in homes where she is the only dog. Ruby is looking for an active lifestyle and a physical fenced yard is a requirement. Children over the age of 9 are welcome for consideration.

She is located in Central Indiana.

If you're an approved ARPH adopter with a current application on file, reach out to [email protected] to learn more about Ruby. If you are not but are interested in becoming an approved ARPH adopter, please submit an adoption application.

Bernie ARPH #14559

WA

 Adorable Bernie is a one year old neutered black tri who loves people and is a total wigglebutt! He's fully housebroken and crate trained, and is very treat motivated for training. He's responding well to basic training and is starting to get much better on leash using a gentle leader. Bernie needs an experienced home who will give him great training to work through his puppiness. In addition to normal manners training, he has some resource guarding tendencies with male dogs so that will be one of his training needs. He is available to an only-dog home, or a home with a non-diva female or older dog.

If you are interested in adoption from us, please submit an adoption application. We do vet, reference and in home checks on all potential adopters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shasta ARPH #14464

TX

Shasta originally came to our program when her elderly owners had to move to assisted living. Unfortunately, she was morbidly obese and didn't feel too great. Over the last 6 months, we have seen a complete transformation as she went through her weight-loss journey and had a manageable health condition diagnosed and regulated. Shasta arrived a whopping 99lbs in June 2022. As of December 2022, she has lost THIRTY-SIX POUNDS (36!!!) and weighs 63lbs. Her ideal weight is 55-58lbs, so we are almost there! She also has Cushings Disease. Fortunately, she takes her twice daily capsule without any problem wrapped in a pill-pocket =) All her adopter will need to do is check bloodwork every 6-12 months.

Shasta is an easy-peasy house companion. She has an endearing personality, LOVES walks, and is a total velcro Aussie. She wants to be with her family! Due to her Cushings, she does have to go tinkle every 3-4 hours. Due to this, we require an adopter that either works from home, or has a doggy door. She cannot go 8-10 hours without relieving her bladder, but has no accidents if allowed appropriate access.

Shasta is rock-solid with other dogs and is even cat friendly. She adores humans, no matter their gender, size, or age.

Shasta has come a long way and achieved all of her health goals! All that is left is to find her forever family.

Shasta is located in North Richland Hills, TX and it is required that you travel there to meet her in person within 10 days of application approval if you want to adopt. We do need the entire party to be involved when meeting available dogs, including every family member and dog(s) that currently live in your home.

If you are an approved ARPH adopter with a current application on file and interested in learning more about Shasta, please contact Laura at [email protected]. If you are not but are interested in becoming an approved ARPH adopter, please submit an adoption application.
