Allie is fostered in Myakka City, FL (Manatee County). We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families! Allie is a border collie mix of about 8 years of age and 28 lbs. But don't let her age fool you - at her size and breed she is still a medium-high energy girl with plenty of focus and drive, complete with an awesome off switch. Allie requires a fenced yard to play, run and train in, and either a companion dog or a very active home with plenty of one-on-one time to give. Allie is an independent and fun little girl. She has herding drive and will herd kids and other dogs. She is pretty bossy and is not recommended for kids younger than 10. She is very respectful with seniors. She loves to play catch and tug as well as search for toys. Allie knows her basic commands (sit, stay, potty, up, down, crate, eat), but true loves are lizard hunting, playing ball and her newfound pastime of playing Frisbee. She would make an awesome dog for a low-key UpDog competitor or someone who just enjoys playing disc with their dog. Allie does well with the two larger female cur mixes in her foster home. She is learning to share her humans and not be such an attention hog. She has been introduced on leash to goats, horses and ponies. She was curious, sniffed and followed them with no aggression, and within a couple minutes of each visit was bored and back to chasing after lizards. Her foster family envisions an active home for her where she can go out on the town, hiking and on adventures She does well on leash in public places. Her foster mom says it is obvious someone loved her very much and put in the time to work with her. Allie is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, heartworm negative and microchipped. 4/18/18 7:52 PM

*ANGUS IS IN DIRE NEED OF A NEW FOSTER.* He has been diagnosed with IVDD in his lumbar spine, a disease in which one of his intervertebral discs bulge or herniate into the spinal cord space. He needs to see a veterinary neurology specialist in the Sarasota-Bradenton area for a detailed diagnosis, and thus needs a foster in this greater geographic area. He will need to be kept mostly on crate rest to minimize pain and movement until we know the extent of his condition. Angus is a 1-year-old Australian cattle dog of 35 lbs. Typical for his breed, he loves human attention and would be fine as an only dog, although he does get along with others. A typical young herding dog, he can be mouthy, but is working on basic commands and manners. He is crate trained, housebroken, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped and heartworm negative. 4/18/18 7:52 PM

Chewy is looking for a foster or adopter who is savvy and patient with fearful dogs. She is currently fostered in Miramar, FL (Broward County). Chewy is about 5 years old and 35 lbs. She has come a long way since she was rescued from Miami-Dade Animal Services in March 2015. Chewy is a project dog, as she has been semi-feral and takes a long time to warm up. She has struggled with fear in the past, but has made great strides in her foster home. She prefers men to women, and loves kids. Cuddling with familiar people is her favorite activity! She adores other dogs and plays with them. She is a flight risk, especially in the initial months, and requires an observant and patient person willing to work on trust with her. She requires a secure fenced yard. Her home will be a special one that lets Chewy be Chewy. She is housebroken, crate trained, spayed, heartworm negative, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, and microchipped. She is a wonderful girl who has come such a long way. She is ready for the next step in her journey! 4/18/18 7:52 PM

**FOSTER OR ADOPTER NEEDED!** Clyde needs a new foster home! He has made all the progress he can make in his current foster home. He would benefit from a foster (or patient adoptive) home with an more confident dog to learn from. He is currently fostered in Bradenton, FL (Manatee County) but we can transport him throughout Florida for the right foster home. We are a foster-based herding dog rescue and we pay for all veterinary expenses and preventive medicines for our foster dogs. Foster applications can be found at ewenityfarmsbch.com. Gentle and shy with not a mean bone in his body, Clyde is a 3-year-old, approximately 40 lb Australian cattle dog x pointer mix who needs some TLC. He came into rescue over a year ago having been semi-feral, and has made great strides. He needs a calm, quiet atmosphere, a kind dog or two, a secure fenced yard, and a loving, patient person who will work with him. He is very food-motivated and does enjoy being petted when he approaches you. He will play with other dogs and likes toys! He needs someone who will get him out and about and teach him all about the world. He is very perceptive and sensitive to the mood in the room. He is very intelligent and curious. Clyde is housebroken, loves his crate (his safe place), and will be rehabilitated with time. Please get in touch if you are interested in fostering him. 4/18/18 7:52 PM

***CODY IS AVAILABLE FOR FOSTER OR ADOPTION TO A BORDER COLLIE-EXPERIENCED HOME, IDEALLY A WORKING FARM HOME. A SECURELY FENCED YARD AND BORDER COLLIE SAVVY WILL BE MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR HIM.*** Cody is fostered in Myakka City, FL (Manatee County). We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families! Cody is a 2-3 year old, 45 lb border collie with typical qualities of a young herder. He and his brother were never separated when young and do suffer from littermate syndrome. It is likely they never met another dog besides their littermates and mother until now, so they will need a savvy person to introduce them slowly to other dogs with low stimulus. Crating will be an absolute must. Cody is a lovable boy with medium to strong herding drive, and high energy. He enjoys playing fetch with a stick and loves the frisbee. He is a bit head shy and shy in general. He knows basic commands, and is house and crate trained. He would shine as a working dog or possibly a sports prospect. He is learning to like other dogs but isn't totally comfortable with others yet. He will need plenty of mentally stimulating activities to keep him happy. Cody is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped and heartworm negative. 4/18/18 7:52 PM

Cooper is fostered in Lakeland, FL (Polk County). We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families! Cooper is a handsome Australian cattle dog mix of 45 lbs and 5 years. What's not to love about him? Cooper gets along great with everyone. He is playful and calm all together at the same time. He's good with other dogs, cats, horses, chickens, and is great with children of all ages. He is the best friend to his foster family's 3-year-old son. He loves car rides and rides to school with his kids every morning. He's very helpful in getting the other dogs in his foster home to come back in, as he will howl while his foster mom calls them in while they linger in the yard. He always comes when called and walks fabulously on a leash. He hasn't met a person yet that he doesn't greet with a smile and a tail wag, and Cooper does, in fact, smile. He loves belly rubs and just being your companion. Cooper was heartworm positive upon coming into rescue last June and has finished his treatment. He has an old injury in his left leg which healed on its own, and he will favor it occasionally but he never lets it stop him from playing. He is house trained and crate trained. He will occasionally mark if another male dog is in the house, but he takes correction on this very well and crating at night stops this. He really is an awesome dog in every way and the ultimate companion. He just wants to be your best friend. Cooper is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, and microchipped. 4/18/18 7:52 PM

  • Prefers home without small kids
Cranberry is fostered in Bradenton, FL (Manatee County). We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families! Cranberry is a loving, goofy red heeler of about 1-2 years and 37 lbs. She is a solid, strong girl, and a typical representative of her breed - loyal, affectionate and glued to her humans, pushy, mouthy (though improving), and in it for the long haul. She is rather beautiful if we do say so ourselves. She fears almost nothing and loves to climb, jump and explore. She is rather quiet overall, but will bark a little bit when watching her foster family's chickens in their run. We will not be placing her in a home with kids younger than 12 at this time. She will do best in a home familiar with cattle dogs that sets clear and consistent expectations for her. She does great with strangers and out in public. Her foster dad describes her in two words: "unconditional love." Cranberry is very easily corrected and has great recall. She wants to be someone's companion, and definitely needs routine activity like walks and hikes, though we would not necessarily classify her as high energy by young heeler standards. Her drive is there and starting to awaken - she will chase a ball or a disc roller and is a quick learner. She tends to ask for permission when it comes to toys, and is fairly measured in her response to them. She is far more interested in people and chickens at this time. It would be awesome to see her evaluated for herding. She does well with other dogs of both sexes and does enjoy playing with them - think play bowing, chasing and a bit of wrestling. Outside she will sometimes give chase and be a little rough with smaller dogs, which goes with the herding territory, but she lives with a 19 lb dog currently and they are best buddies. Cranberry is housebroken, crate trained and rides fine in a car as long as she is tethered or crated (which dogs always should be, anyway). She needs a home that will continue crating her while unattended and, if she goes to a home with other dogs, during meals. She is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped and heartworm negative as of 3/21! 4/18/18 7:52 PM

Don is currently fostered in Sunset, LA for our rescue, Ewenity Farm, a Herding Dog Haven, which is Florida-based. Because of his temperament he cannot be placed on a transport run with strangers, so he needs to be picked up from his foster home. Don is a 32 lb male Australian cattle dog mix who has had a tough life. He is estimated to be 7-8 years of age, give or take 3 years. It is hard to tell due to the condition of his teeth. He will be having a dental prior to adoption to make sure anything that needs to be pulled is. His ears are somewhat rumpled from neglect, but are healthy. He needs slow introductions to other dogs, but does great with them once order is established. He is a tough cookie, a typical heeler who is selective about who he lets around. He is extremely loyal and loving with his chosen people. He will wait for his person day and night, warm your seat and cuddle with you. He is fairly laid-back but requires a bond with his people. He likes cats. He is housebroken and crate trained. Don is up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, neutered and microchipped. He is looking for a very special adopter. His standard donation is $250, however he can be adopted by someone 65+ for $150 through our Seniors for Seniors program. 4/18/18 7:52 PM

She would be great for a senior person and is low maintenance, kennel trained and housebroken. Duffy is always willing to please and knows basic commands. She gets along great with other dogs and shows no interest in cats. Her foster has worked hard to instill manners and mold her into the ideal family pet.

Dundee is a 2-year-old Australian cattle dog mix saved from Alachua County Animal Services in Florida. He currently weighs a little over 50 lbs and should really be in the neighborhood of 40-45. He is a charismatic guy who knows 'sit' and 'shake' and walks great on lead. He is a sweetheart and gets along with humans of every age. He is fine with other dogs, but doesn't appreciate those that get in his face. A typical independent heeler, he does not need another dog in his forever home to be happy. He loves to play ball, give hugs and roll in the grass. He is crate trained and mostly housebroken. He is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped and heartworm negative. He is a wonderful dog with loads of potential. 4/18/18 7:52 PM

Eevee is fostered in Bradenton, FL (Manatee County). We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families! Hi there, my name is Eevee! I am looking for a forever family that will let me be my true terrier self. I most enjoy playing chase with my foster siblings, cuddling with my foster parents, chasing squirrels and lizards, and this fun thing called lure coursing my foster mom took me to. I get to chase a bag at top speed and bark at it! My foster mom also says I would be great for a sport called barn hunt, and of course nosework. I have a great sniffer and I know how to use it! I am not used to going potty on leash, so I definitely need a fenced yard. I recently learned how to climb the vines on the fence and scale it, so I will need a tall, secure fence and supervision. Oh, and I am housebroken, or so my foster mom says, and very quiet and well-behaved in the crate, where I stay when I am unattended so I don't chew things that could hurt me or the house I live in! I adore my foster family so much, and I love to be held and relax right next to them. Some of my foster siblings sometimes push me around because I am only 19 lbs and they are cattle dogs. I am probably part cattle dog, but not so much that I act like them. I am very kind with other dogs, but I will submit or stick up for myself depending on the situation. I am a lover, not a fighter! I would love, and probably need, a kind doggie friend in my forever home. When I first arrived I was very scared of new people outside the home. I would bark, freeze up and growl. My foster family has taken me to restaurants, the Little League park, lure coursing practice, state parks, and big, crowded adoption events, so I have learned not to act this way around new humans for the most part! Respectful kids are fine by me, and I even spent a weekend living with a visiting infant with no problems. I walk well on a leash and would make a fun hiking and walking companion, or even running! I am focused on my handler and I know how to sit. 'Down' and 'stay' are a work in progress, but overall I just want to please. I do come when called, although sometimes I may linger to watch my foster family's chickens in their run. I really would love to meet those chickens inside the fence one day... It would be fun to have a home that takes me gives me plenty of physical activity, and works with me so I can be tired in my brain as well as my little legs. I do have what they call an "off switch" and am happy to nap by your side. I ride well in the car too! Overall, I am a sweet and moderately active dog. I am about 2-4 years old, according to the vet. The vet makes me nervous, but they say I have no health issues and am ready to find my forever family! I am spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped (ouch!) and heartworm-free. I can't wait to meet my forever family! 4/18/18 7:52 PM

Flower is in need of a new foster or ideally adoptive home. She is currently located in Bradenton, FL (Manatee County) and transport is available throughout the state to a new foster home. Flower has been in rescue since 2015 when she, her mom and littermates were rescued from having been dumped in a box in Miami. Her mom and siblings were adopted that year, but we held Flower back due to a heart problem called cardiomyopathy that has since been nearly eliminated with good nutrition, supplements and medication. The rescue provides support and cardiology appointments for fosters. Flower is a 2-year-old, 63 pound spayed female, chocolate brown, bully breed mix with maybe some lab thrown in as well. Her mom looks like an American bully and is doing great in her forever home. Flower is so lanky she is surely mixed with something athletic. She is an attention-seeking, fun-loving, energetic pup that loves to run and play. Flower gets along well with and loves to play with other dogs, but can get a bit intense. For this reason she is not suited for homes with small children or small pets. She sleeps in a crate at night and when her current foster family leaves the house. She is pretty well potty trained and goes potty outside on leash. She knows basic commands and leash etiquette, but has a stubborn streak sometimes. On leash she will participate in simple agility tasks, but off leash she loses focus and just wants to run. She requires a fenced yard for play and exercise. Flower is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped and heartworm negative. Please inquire if you are interested in fostering or adopting this sweet and wonderful girl. 4/18/18 7:52 PM

Frosty is fostered in Clearwater, FL (Pinellas County). We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families! Frosty is a sweet little senior schnauzer mix (we also see some other terrier and chihuahua) at 10 years young and 15 lbs. She takes a few days to warm up, but once she is bonded she wants nothing but to follow your shadow, sleep in a nice comfy bed next to your couch, and nudge your hand for gentle pets. She will be happiest in a quiet home with someone willing to show her slow, gentle, and confident affection. Being timid and defensive around fast movement and noises, we would not recommend children in the household. She doesn't mind dogs but would rather live in an one dog house. She does seem to love cats and will perk up and wag when one walks past. She has shown some mild resource guarding behavior towards other animals when she is around her human, and it is something that she responds quickly to correction, but will be an ongoing training opportunity in her new home. She is fully house-trained but does need to take her time out in the yard. She loves easy walks and sniffing everything in the world around her! Frosty is a simple, sweet old gal looking for a forever home to lay her head. She is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and preventatives, has had a recent dental, is microchipped, and heartworm negative. Her standard adoption donation is $250; however, she can be adopted by a senior citizen 65+ for $150 through our Seniors for Seniors program. 4/18/18 7:52 PM

Hannah is fostered in St. Petersburg, FL (Pinellas County). We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families! Hannah came into rescue at 3 months old and has been in rescue a full year as of 2/21. She weighs a little over 30 lbs and should be done growing. Playing ball is her absolute favorite, and we could see her doing flyball or potentially disc. We will be trying her at lure coursing very soon. She loves to go out on the town with her foster mom and foster siblings and has her basic obedience and manners down pat. Hannah would do best in an active home that would take her to classes to keep her mentally and physically stimulated. She does need a yard with a 6' or higher fence, and another dog(s) to play with. She is timid around a big dock diving pool, though she can swim and does it well. She would make an excellent running, hiking or biking buddy. She does well with kids 5+. At the end of the day she loves to cuddle up with her people. Hannah is spayed, microchipped, up-to-date on vaccines and prevention, and heartworm negative. 4/18/18 7:52 PM

India is currently fostered in Sunset, LA for our rescue, Ewenity Farm, Herding Dog Haven, which is Florida-based. We are hoping to find an appropriate foster so we can arrange for transport to Florida. India is a beautiful and devoted girl who spent 4 years - that's right - 4 years in the shelter before Ewenity pulled her. She is probably about 7 years old now, and weighs 45 lbs. We are seeking a special adoptive or foster home for her to transition her to home life. She has incredible toy drive and leaps into the air for a ball or disc. She is trained to jump hurdles on leash. She does require a fenced yard, but also has nice leash manners. She needs a home without cats or dogs. She never met a person she didn't love, and forms strong bonds with humans. She is looking for that special family to give her plenty of love and attention.

Jackson is available for foster or adoption. We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for fosters! Jackson is currently fostered in Riverview, FL (Hillsborough County). Hi, my name is Jackson! Foster momma asked me to talk about myself so that I can find my forever, so here is what I have to say as typed by her. I am a year old and 80 lbs, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, neutered, microchipped and heartworm-free! I have been told that I am a Great Pyrenees mix. The vet said I even have some Australian shepherd in me! I am not sure what that means, but to me it means that my job is to be outside protecting my territory. According to foster momma, if I didn't have the pesky herding dog instincts fighting with the guardian instincts, I would be out with lots of grass eaters making sure that they stay safe from predators. Since I do have a lot of desire to make the grass eaters move, she won't let me stay in their pasture with them. On the other paw, she says that that instinct is also why I have never tried to escape my pasture, so I guess it isn't all bad. I came into rescue with a goat who was my friend who has since been adopted. I am still looking for my forever home. I am pretty bouncy when I want attention, but my foster parents are working on it. I won't let strangers come out where I am, because they could be ninjas in disguise, unless one of my foster parents comes out with them and tells me that they are allowed. I do not want any furry things getting into my food, so I let them know that they are not allowed. I am not an inside dog as I refuse to go in the house. I would make an awesome farm dog but I am admittedly not the best livestock guardian. I just want to be your friend. 4/18/18 7:52 PM

Kristoff is available for foster or adoption. We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families! Kristoff is fostered in Tampa, FL (Hillsborough County). Kristoff was born in rescue on June 25, 2017 to an Australian cattle dog (blue heeler) mix. He will be a medium-large adult, perhaps topping out around 50-55 lbs. Kristoff is a strikingly handsome white and brindle pup! He was raised with early neurological stimulation, socialization and enrichment. Kristoff is great with other dogs and does fine with kids, though he did inherit the nipping behavior of his herding breed side, so older kids would be best. Kristoff is a trailblazer - he was the first puppy of the litter to open their eyes. He is very intelligent and kennels up without a treat. He is a very happy boy who loves life. He is just missing that forever family of his! Kristoff is neutered, microchipped, heartworm negative and current on vaccines and preventives. 4/18/18 7:52 PM

Oakley is available for foster or adoption. We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families! Oakley is currently fostered in Hudson, FL (Pasco County). Oakley is a 1.5-2 year old Australian cattle dog mix. He is a high energy dog of 42 lbs who is very submissive with people and as a typical heeler, does show the potential to want to guard his chosen person from other dogs, so he will need a savvy person who does not allow this. He shows interest in toys but no real drive yet. He walks nicely on leash overall and just needs some fine tuning. He loves to cuddle, chew and work for treats. He is very athletic and can jump high. Overall he is a very nice dog with a lot of potential and just needs some training and consistency. He is neutered and has an appointment on 3/12 to get him microchipped and up-to-date on vaccines. He is heartworm negative and up-to-date on preventives. 4/18/18 7:52 PM

Princess is fostered in Bradenton, FL (Manatee County). We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families! Princess is a happy-go-lucky little dog of 20 lbs and about 4-5 years of age. She is a good listener and gets along with other dogs, though she does not require one in her forever home. She would also be fine in a home without a fenced yard as long as she gets walks. She does fine with humans of all ages and is a great cuddler. In her pictures shown on this site she is shaved, and we are unsure how long her coat actually is, though as a terrier mix we do imagine it is medium-long and wiry. She rides well in the car, is housebroken, crate trained and knows how to use a dog door. She is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped and heartworm negative. 4/18/18 7:52 PM

***ROCKET IS AVAILABLE FOR FOSTER OR ADOPTION TO A BORDER COLLIE-EXPERIENCED HOME, IDEALLY A WORKING FARM HOME. A SECURELY FENCED YARD AND BORDER COLLIE SAVVY WILL BE MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR HIM.*** Rocket is fostered in Myakka City, FL (Manatee County). We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for foster families! Rocket is a 2-3 year old, 48 lb border collie with typical qualities of a young herder. He and his brother were never separated when young and do suffer from littermate syndrome. It is likely they never met another dog besides their littermates and mother until now, so they will need a savvy person to introduce them slowly to other dogs with low stimulus. Crating will be an absolute must. Rocket is affectionate, eager to please, playful and full of energy with an off switch. He is fast as a rocket. He has a strong possibility for herding with the help of an experienced trainer/handler. He shows interest in stalking livestock. He will need plenty of mentally stimulating activities to keep him happy. Rocket is house and crate trained, and easily corrected. He walks nicely on leash but may get excited. Rocket is neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, microchipped and heartworm negative. 4/18/18 7:52 PM

Skittles is about 1.5 years old and weighs shy of 40 lbs. She is a sweet girl who came from a hoarding case and takes a little while to warm up. Once she gets over her initial shyness, she loves belly rubs. Due to her past, she needs needs structure and boundaries set in her new home, as any dog would. She does well with other dogs and is playful, but does have some issues around resources with other dogs, so she will absolutely need to be fed in a crate (something we strongly recommend for any dog) and worked with in this regard. She does not like loud noises like gunshots. She is housebroken and crate trained, and absolutely needs a crate in her new home - it is her sanctuary. Skittles is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines, preventives and heartworm negative, and will be microchipped prior to adoption. 4/18/18 7:52 PM

Zorro is fostered in Hollywood, FL (Broward County). We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for fosters! Zorro was a Miami-Dade Animal Services rescue and has come a long way in rescue! He is an approximately 10-year-old Australian cattle dog who weighs around 30 lbs and is currently on a diet. He is a total sweetheart who deserves a loving home with someone who appreciates him. He is great with humans of all ages, and does fine with dogs smaller than him. He should not go to a home with dogs larger than him as he becomes defensive and scared. This has been tested in two homes and it is a consistent pattern. He does fine with the cats outside of his home, but does seem very interested in and observant of them. He would also be fine as an only animal. Zorro loves to play ball, go for walks, and of course get loads of attention! He is housebroken and overall just a really nice boy. As a senior dog, Zorro is available through our Seniors for Seniors program. His standard adoption donation is $250, but he can be adopted by a senior 65+ for $150.
