#13780 Sheba is a 9 month old sweetheart who’s about 35 pounds. She is very affectionate and looks for love and approval often.  She tends to be submissive but not nervous. She is friendly with people of all ages and sizes. She does have the tendency to jump when excited and can be nippy when she’s excited as well. Sheba has a lot of puppy energy but is not over the top in energy level. 

Sheba  hasn't met a dog she didn't like. She loves to play with other dogs and can be a bit too much for older dogs. She does respect them when told to back off but will try again later.  She is crate trained but also sleeps loose at night in a safe area. She is a chewer of inappropriate items at time going along with her young age. Her foster mom has taught her to sit and she has excellent recall. Sheba is a wonderful dog but will require work as she is still very much a pup. She will need an owner with prior aussie experience. If already approved contact

This stunning guy is Bentley. And yes, he's an Aussie with a big beautiful tail!  He's also a big guy -- tall and already 60 lbs!

Bentley is a red-tri Aussie, about a year and half old and is all teenage male!  He has a ton of energy and is VERY smart!

His foster says he's learning to use his inside voice, but he has a big bark that can be startling.

Bentley is VERY affectionate!  He loves his foster mom and really loves his dad!  He can't get enough attention!  He gets along well with the family cat and plays well with the other dogs -- but is a real resource guarder (food and toys), which is how he ultimately came to ARPH.   We are recommending that Bentley be an only dog.  He plays well with other dogs, but it's close quarters and competition for food and toys where he gets himself into trouble.

He is not aggressive with kids, but he is young and strong and can easily (accidently) knock young children over, so we are recommending adult homes.

Bentley needs exercise, training, structure and LOTS of attention!

He is house broken.  His foster family does not crate him when they leave the house -- he has free reign without issues.

Bentley is a very fast learner.  He knows sit and stay, and has figured out complex issues like taking a large toy out the doggie door to the back yard. He makes his foster family laugh all the time -- he's a funny guy!

He really needs ACTIVE  owners that are patient and will give him the training and love he deserves!  As his foster mom says -- he's a real love, he just needs someone that understands him!  We will ask that any potential adopter commit to training for Bentley.  Bentley is being fostered in Virginia Beach, Virginia.  If you are an approved ARPH adopter, please contact
