Harley NCAR #XXX
Harley is an extremely timid yet sweet 4-5 year old boy who we rescued from the Monterey Shelter. He's about 72 pounds, has a tail and I will post his DNA results when we receive them. He seems to get along with other dogs, likes a bit of petting, but pretty much avoids close contact unless he's on a leash. Do't know what happened to him in his past, but it was bad. I adore this boy for the tremendous effort he's making. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Tucker NCAR #XXX
Tucker is a 9 year old blue merle who weighs about 60 pounds. He came into the Santa Cruz shelter by someone who got him from Craig's list. We traced his microchip and found that he was adopted from the shelter in Bakersfield when he was about 3 months old. He LOVES everyone he meets and is Velcro. He needs a securely fenced yard and would do best with a doggie door to the inside. We placed him 4 months ago, but he showed us that he will find a way out of the house (open window) if he's left alone too long. He also can be leash reactive when confronted with new dogs. Best scenario is fenced yard, someone who can be with him most of the time and take him for hikes in open space. Tucker is crate trained and loves the car! Fostered in Grass Valley.

Hurley NCAR #XXX
Hurley just turned 10 years old on May 22, 2019. Her owner got her as a puppy. Recently, he noticed that she was having difficulty standing up in the evening and said that he is gone long hours and can't take care of her anymore. Hurley is about 12-15 pounds overweight, is absolutely darling, and is good with cats and dogs. We're getting her blood work done and she is on a weight loss program. Fostered in Grass Valley.

ROMAN NCAR #1141
We rescued Roman from a recently widowed woman who needed to move from her home and couldn't take Roman with her. She and her husband bought Roman as a puppy. Roman is ow 5 years old, and absolutely darling! He loves all people and children, other dogs and cats. He has the sweetest disposition! He has epilepsy which is under control with medication, and hasn't had a seizure for over a year. He was fed way too much and weiged a whopping 100 pounds when he came to us........now he's under 90 pounds! He's agile and full of fun! He can live with cats and dogs, too.

He can get car sick, so we give him Cerenia before long trips. He walks well on a leash (uses an Easy Walk Harness) and is housebroken. He loves his stuffed toy and plays with it endlessly without tearing it apart. We had his bloodwork done, and he's 100% healthy and will stay on his current medication dosage. (2 pills AM and 2 pills PM) He's a darling boy who is VELCRO, and can open levered door handles to come inside to be with me. Fostered in Grass Valley.

RHETT NCAR #1131
We rescued Rhett in December, 2014 from the Placer County Animal Shelter where he came in as a stray. He's a 48 pound red tri who is just lovely. He was adopted in January, 2015 by a couple from Morro Bay.

In April, we were asked to take him as both his owners died. He seems arthritic, and we gave him another dental and he's in good shape and his blood panel is normal. He's a little stiff in his hind legs, so we're giving him anti-inflammatory meds and supplements. He's not a fan of my slippery hardwood floors, so we have some runners he likes!

Our guess is Rhett is 10-12 years old now. This boy is sweet and loves everyone he meets. He's fine with other dogs. He's fine with cats, but he's not a fan of dogs that push into his face. Rhett is housebroken, easy going and likes hanging with his person. Fostered in Grass Valley.

ROO NCAR #1129
Roo (Ruger) just turned 5 on April 2. Roo is a lively, loving 60 pound blue merle who isn't getting enough attention at home where 4 young children are being home schooled. He LOVES the children, but usually ends up outside where he gets barky and neighbors have complained.

He is reactive with SOME other dogs, and should be introduced on leash. He woud do best in a country setting where he doesn't encounter lots of other dogs. He chases cats, but doesn't hurt them. He would do best in a home with someone who will run him an hour a day, or on a ranch setting where he can run around and come in at night. He will play fetch till your arm is tired, and loves people! He's a good boy. Fostered in Grass Valley. .

Blue Boy NCAR #
We received a call from an elderly woman who was desperate to find a home for Blue Boy, her 7 year old Chi-Doxie mix. No one would take him, she made endless phone calls to rescue groups and shelters and always got the same response "We're Full"
I drove to her house as her family was packing the UHaul. She was so grateful that I took him that she cried.
Blue has one blue eye, and one amber eye, weights 14 pounds, was a DOLL at the vet where we updated all his shots and gave him a much-needed dental. He's a cuddle bunny, likes to fetch a ball, gets along with most of the other dogs here, but would certainly LOVE to be someone's one and only! Fostered in Grass Valley.
