chipper1092119 chipper2092119 chipper3092119 chipper4092119 chipper5092119 CHIPPER is learning how to be social with other dogs. He was owned by an elderly person that had health issues, so Chipper did not interact much with other dogs. He is learning to get along with other dogs, but fancies the ladies. He is neutered. He likes to bark.  He likes to do things when he wants too!  He loves to be outside in the yard, go for car rides and look out the window or hang his head out the window.  He will follow you around the house and sleep on the floor next to your bed. He is in great health and acts more like a 5 year old dog, not a 11 year old dog.

We are taking applications. Please email us at ohioeskierescue@outlook.com.









BEBE has to have the best developed vocal chords of any Eskie I have met, and i have met many! ROFL She is house and crate trained. She gets along with all size dogs, ages, and sexes. She does prefer to run with bigger dogs. She is 7 yrs old, about 23 lbs, spayed, all shots, and had a dental. If she is not running with the other dogs, she is laying on the couch with her head in your lap. She loves to sleep by your feet in bed. She is a food guarder, so she does eat in her crate. We are working on that issue.

We are taking applications on her, so please email us at ohioeskierescue@outlook.com. She is being fostered near Cincinnati, OH.








GRACE is a 5 year old small 13lb, female Eskie. She is a survivor of the mills of Ohio. She is very shy and must have been attacked by another dog at the mill. She is warming up to the males in the house, but she will not do well with an obnoxious dog. She would be fine with a mellow dog. Grace has to see you most of the time and be with you. She has severe separation anxiety, so no apartment life for her. She does not know how to go up/down steps, but she is learning. She has to sleep in bed with you, right near your body. She is doing really well learning about house training. She has learned to bark for dinner time. She is fostered near Cincinnati, OH Not sure about cats, would probably ignore them. I would not put her with kids because they would not understand her or give her the proper attention. She is good with meeting new people, but skittish. . We prefer an adopter who knows mill dogs. She needs a fenced yard to run. She loves her freedom.

We are taking applications for her adoption.  Please email us at ohioeskierescue@outlook.com.

He is one fun loving Eskie. He is about 19lbs. He has separation anxiety and will bark when you leave the house. So no apartment life for him. He loves to run, so a fenced yard is required.

michael01092119-33 michael2092119-33Meet our angel, MICHAEL! Michael is a standard male Eskie 11 yrs old, and 40lbs.

We rescued Michael from a high kill shelter here in Ohio. He joined us back in December 2018 and he was in really rough shape. We are not sure, but who ever dumped him totally neglected our boy. He had tumors removed, all benign, a much needed dental ( only lost a few teeth) and a treatments for severe ear and skin infections. He has the best foster Mom and Dad that nursed him back to health. He lives with other dogs and enjoys trotting around the yard with them. One of his favorite things is hanging with the man of the house. He is a gentle giant. He is house trained, neutered, and fully vetted. He has some arthritis so not a lot of stairs for our guy. He is fostered near Cincinnati, OH.

Please email us at ohioeskierescue@outlook.com for an application.






hayle2 hayley1

HAYLEY is a 3 year old female mini Eskie. We took Hayley and 2 other female Eskies from the mills of Ohio on November 1st. Hayley came with her sister Hannah. They seem to be bonded and hang out in their crate together. The crate for them is a safe place away from humans.

They are comfortable with their foster Mom giving them baths, picking them up, and trimming their nails.

Hayley is fully vetted, micro-chipped, spayed, de-wormed, and heart worm negative. She is house trained. Hayley is OK on a leash but prefers a fenced yard to run and play.

Hayley and Hannah are fostered near Indianapolis. Please email us at ohioeskierescue@outlook.com.



harley2 harley1

HARLEY is 7 years old and she is a standard female Eskie. She is a sweet and calm soul.  The mills of Ohio did break her spirit because of the severe abuse she received in the mill, but Harley is making a comeback.  Harley likes to be a mother dog to the others since all her puppies were taken away from her shortly after their birth.

Harley is fully vetted, micro-chipped, spayed, de-wormed, and heart worm negative. She is house trained. Harley is OK on a leash but prefers a fenced yard to run and play.

snowball1 snowball2 snowball3

SNOWBALL is 5 years old and 52 lbs of standard female Eskie. We saved her back in December 2019 from an Ohio shelter.

Snowball is physically strong and is an active young girl. She does pull on a leash, so her foster family is working with her on that. Snowball does do some simple commands. She is good with cats. Snowball needs a slow introduction to other dogs if they have the same energy. She seems to want to be the queen of her home.  Snowball is fully vetted, micro-chipped and spayed. She is on a weight loss program at her foster home.

Snowball is fostered near Cleveland, Ohio. Please email us at ohioeskierescue@outlook.com.

Applicants wanting to adopt one of our dogs will have to come to Ohio.  We do not transport or fly dogs to any location.  We want to meet the new family and see the interaction between the dog and human(s). If you have a dog it is required that the dog(s) come with the family so we can see the interaction between the dogs.

You will have to fill out an application to adopt one of our dogs. We require a vet reference and home visit.

We will not adopt out to owners that have an invisible fence. Invisible fencing does not protect the dog from outsiders, animals and other harm.

If you do not practice proper care of your past or current dogs you will be denied.  All dogs need an annual wellness exam with the Vet. State law requires all dogs be vaccinated for rabies and have a valid tag.
