Cinnamon is a 9 year old Miniature Shepherd who was shaved down recently by his former owner. He was born with a bottom jaw that is about 3/4 inch shorter than his top jaw, so his teeth don't meet. He salivates a lot, but eats and drinks just fine. He's crate trained, easy-going, in good shape at about 34 pounds. He used to run a couple of miles daily with his owner, but will do fine with leash walks. He doesn't seek out other dogs and leaves cats alone. Fostered in Grass Valley.
Zoe was surrendered to a shelter due to a move where she wasn't allowed. She's 9 years old, not interested in dogs, and will warn them with bared teeth if they get into her face. She loves people and children. She knows many tricks, like sit, speak, shake, lie down. She is a couch potato for sure, and should get daily on leash walks. She's pretty, and quiet, and wants to be someone's one and only. Fostered in Grass Valley.

TEDDY NCAR #
Teddy and his littermate were bought 10 years ago from a breeder. From day 1, the brothers fought over food-mostly Teddy wanted to get his brother's food! Owner did the best she could, but several times the door wasn't shut, or somehow they got into a fight over food. She loves them both, and they slept together peacefully on her bed with her 2 cats….for 10 years!
The last time they fought over food was late November, and she got bitten in the wrist when she tried to stop the fight. She brought them both to the shelter and we were called. In 4 days, she decided to take one back and Teddy came to us. Teddy is about 44 pounds, likes to play fetch, is totally glued to my side and has shown no aggression towards (or interest in) other dogs. He likes cats. Fostered in Grass Valley.
POPPY NCAR #
Poppy is a deaf and almost blind 5 month old red merle Aussie. Her foster mom thinks she can see shadows. She was rescued from a shelter at 4 months of age and vet estimates her date of birth is July 14, 2018. She's about 37 pounds now, and is healthy and easy-going.
Her foster mom is teaching her through touch and a vibrating collar. Poppy is a quick learner! She comes when she feels the pleasant vibration, and she has learned SIT (taps on her head) and DOWN (taps on her shoulder blades) She lives nicely with other dogs, is trusting and very sweet. She met a 4 pound blind Yorkie nose to nose!
Poppy is fostered in Hollister. Application required.
DARCY NCAR #1107
Darcy, a sweet, fun 5 year old black tri girl. Darcy loves other dogs, and will solicit play with just about anyone! She has shown she can be a bit headstrong, and not come when called if she's busy doing something else, but oh how adorable she is!
She is quite barky when she is feeling happy, wanting out to be with me, or wanting in to be with me. Sometimes she just barks cause it's fun! She needs an easy walk harness as she pulls on a leash.
Darcy greets everyone like a long, lost buddy and endears herself to all! She'll chase squirrels and cats, and will wait patiently beside gofer holes! Darcy loves car rides and loves running on the beach. We'd like to find Darcy a home where she'll get plenty of exercise and mental stimulation. We would like to find her a home where she's the only dog, and there are no cats. Fostered in Grass Valley.
RICKY NCAR # 1103
Ricky is a big, Velcro red tri boy. He can be intimidating because he often alarm barks and is quite barky in a vehicle when people come near. He has never bitten or nipped. Ricky chewed his way out of an outdoor kennel several times just to sit on the front porch. The last time he escaped, he broke a tooth and scraped up his face, so owners gave him up to us.
He is 7 years old, about 65 pounds and will make a great companion Aussie and guard dog for someone who doesn't have a lot of people coming and going out of the house or workplace. He puts on a scary show when protecting his space or car. He will play with other playful dogs. I melt when he gives me hugs and looks into my eyes! He has no interest in leaving the Sanctuary and hangs out quietly in his kennel. Fostered in Grass Valley.
Koda NCAR #1074
Koda is a 35 pound Miniature American Shepherd mix from the El Dorado County shelter. I traced his microchip and found out he’s 12-13 years old and was at the Sacramento County shelter. He spent his life unaltered, and we recently had him altered.
He’s rather independent, but once near someone, will lie on his back for belly rubs. This boy is not yet trust worthy off leash, and needs a person or family to keep him close and cozy, and make him feel special. His hearing is going. He’s on the mellow side except if another dog is on the other side of his fence.....then he makes trouble! Fostered in Marysville.
