Aussies
Alice Marley NCAR #1060
Marley is a big, lovey black tri boy who vets estimate to be 4-5 years old. He belonged to a man who worked in a warehouse and was everyone’s “mascot” until the man was laid off and disappeared, leaving Marley at the warehouse. The man’s cell phone was disconnected. We’re putting his history together just with this story and his behavior.

Marley is very comfortable in the house, likes to fetch, likes all people and is a big boy at 65 pounds. He briefly stayed at someone’s home where he seemed quite fixated on her 2 cats and 2 birds. I’m thinking he has not lived with either! Fostered in Grass Valley. Contact: Kim at kim@norcalaussierescue.com

Sidney Sidney NCAR #71
Sid is a 4-6 year old Cairn Terrier mix we rescued from the Sacramento County Animal Shelter due to medical issues. He was adopted, then returned because he sometimes skipped on one of his hind legs. He was seen by 2 vets and X Rays showed no abnormalities – and no lameness or pain was noted. We think he does the small dog skip we’ve seen in others!

He’s friendly towards everyone, very chill around other dogs and loves his stuffed toys and won't let other dogs take them from him! He’s about 15 pounds and very, very cute! Fostered in Grass Valley.

Frankie Frankie NCAR #1054
Frankie is a 1.5 year old Aussie mix with his tail. He's about 36 pounds, fairly average activity level and housebroken. He was purchased with his littermate and he started to fight with him. The owner asked us for help, so we took him in.

His owner used a shock collar on him when he chased after deer. He ran with his owner and is used to lots of exercise. I'm working on getting his attention with treats and giving him praise for coming to me. He's ok with the dogs here, but I feel he would really enjoy being an only dog soaking up all the attention and training. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Nikki Nikki NCAR #1053
Nikki is 9 years old and supposedly a miniature Aussie – we can’t confirm. She was a companion dog to an elderly woman who passed away three years ago. Nikki went to live with the daughter and for the last three years, spent 10 hours per day alone. We were called to find her a home where she could be with someone and live a more fulfilling life.

Nikki fetches, plays with playful dogs, or hangs out in the house. She’s ultra sweet, about 40 pounds and loves everyone. She's a doll who can live with cats, too! Fostered in Sacramento.

Benny Benny NCAR #1052
Benny had three homes and three name changes before he came here. He is only 18 months old, and is a loving, energetic and bouncy Aussie/BC mix. He was kept outside in a dog run for most of the day, then allowed in at night. He wasn’t happy being alone for so long and found ways to escape and run around the neighborhood. He got passed around from neighbor to neighbor before we received a call for help.

He is going through obedience classes at the Sanctuary and doing VERY WELL! He'd do best with another playful, well trained dog or an only dog with someone who has lots of time for him and lots of patience. He needs a person to love him and he'll do great! Fostered in Grass Valley.

Vito

Beau NCAR #1042
Beau is approximately 10 years old and is blind. He’s a handsome blue merle who was found in San Jose. No one was looking for him.

He is Velcro, loves everyone he meets and will ask for belly rubs! He stays close, is easy on a leash and would do well with a well behaved, friendly dog who he will feel comfortable with if humans aren’t around. He’d do best with people who have a safe, comfortable yard and one story house. I am certain he was attacked by other dogs due to being intact and blind...so understandably, he can be defensive when meeting new dogs and is not a candidate for dog parks. He's fine in a yard alone or with another dog for stretches of time. He plays nicely with dogs that he knows and that don't threaten him.

He’s happiest being close to me and does very well navigating around the Sanctuary. Beau is a very loving boy. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Dodger NCAR# 1039
Dodger is a 53 pound, 4 year old Black Tri boy. Dodger was left long hours and began escaping and barking. Neighbors complained, and his owners couldn't afford day care or a dog walker. He does not like to be crated or in a kennel, but has adjusted to our large kennels at the Sanctuary. He's fine in the house as long as someone is home with him. He should not be left alone for long periods of time in the house unless he has access to a doggy door.

He's loving and smart and fine left with my other dogs outside at the Sanctuary….just wants to be near me….sound familiar? Dodger knows sit, stay, down, come, heel and leave it and graduated from obedience class. He'd do best in a home with no other dogs and no cats. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Clyde NCAR #975
We're not sure if Clyde is a mix of Aussie and Golden and/or several breeds! He's 85 pounds, and guess that he's between 10 and 12 years old. He takes a long time to get up and lie down. He walks slowly and deliberately, does not hear 100%. That said, he'll still chase a tennis ball once in awhile, and plays with the young ones and has moments where he behaves like a puppy!

He was picked up in a field in Sacramento County and no one came for him. He was already neutered, but terribly neglected with mats that were pulling his skin off.He's an easy boy to have around, is housebroken and on anti-inflammatory medication so he can move around more easily. He does 3-4 stairs to my deck OK, but I wouldn't ask him to do more than that. He's a sweetie, is housebroken and easy to care for. Fostered in Grass Valley.
