Welcome to the Ontario Aussie Success Story Site. These featured dogs have all been adopted through ARPH (Aussie Rescue Placement Helpline) and wanted to share their forever home stories with everyone!

This is Lilly, she was rescued from a puppy mill in Ohio. She was 10 months old when I met her at her foster mom, Nina's house. As soon as I saw those beautiful eyes I knew she was for me. I soon found out she was a bottomless pit. Stealing off counters and plates when she thought no one was looking. As I got to know Lilly better I started to notice she was very nervous of strange dogs and began to act aggressively towards them.
Luckily with the help of a couple of private lessons and continued group lessons at Mccann's dog school we have learned how to deal with her issues but it is something we work on everyday. I am pleased to say that today Lilly is the most lovable and well behaved dog (no more stealing)! She knows all her commands and lots of fun tricks. She has completed grade 4 and will be moving on to agility next. She is a bundle of energy. I believe that the name Bounce would have suited her better! We love going on long walks and swims with her doggie friends. Her two loves are water and tennis balls. She has tons of fun diving into the pond. And she keeps herself busy by rolling her ball off a couch or down stairs than chasing it and starting it all over again. Lilly lives with two kitties and a 12 year old weimaraner that she loves and totally respects. I love coming home to that happy face and wiggly bum. Lilly has been more fun than I could have ever imagined. She is the aussie I was waiting for.

Dennis Lilly's buddy!
As the grandmother of this lovely little girl, Lilly has brought a lot of joy into to our lives. She is best friends with my aussie Cody and his brother Finnegan. Lilly's mother is devoted and relentless in her training with Lilly. We are really looking forward to watching Lilly do agility this summer.ReplyDelete
