Shep was brought into an emergency vet on May 23 because he and had a severe head tilt. He was diagnosed with Vestibular disease which usually effects senior dogs and can disappear in weeks or months, or may never resolve. There is no known cause.
Shep's owners could not afford the vet visit and asked that he be euthanized. We were called and we rescued him. Shep has been on 4 different medications since May 23 and is walking better and his head tilt has lessened a bit.

He had and still has double ear infections which are mostly antibiotic-resistant, so he's now getting medicated ear packs that we hope might clear help. Our Vet couldn't see his ear drum in one ear - infections have been there for years and are the reason for his vestibular disease.

We couldn't get his name and age from the first vet, so we guess he's 7 or 8 years old. He is Velcro, and will whine if he sees me and wants to be with me. He's nice to every person he meets. He is not neutered and won't be available for adoption until July. Fostered in Grass Valley. This is a very sweet boy who is feeling better and playing with toys!

Rudy is a 2-3 year old Border Collie mix who was found in San Leandro with a broken chain around his neck. He's about 56 pounds, loves to play fetch, affectionate and will sit and hug you! His teeth are terribly worn, either from chewing on a tennis ball or his chain. He learns quickly and needs formal, positive method training classes. He's mostly good with other dogs, unknown how he is with cats.
His DNA came back! He's 50% Border Collie, 25% Australian Shepherd, 12.5% White Swiss Shepherd and 12.5% mixture of several breeds. He is learning to fetch in the pond, is loving his freedom, but does not have a trust worthy recall...yet! Fostered in Grass Valley.

Albi is a 4 year old red merle girl who turns 5 in July. Albi can sit, stay, come, leave it, kennel up, go inside and go outside. She has good recall. Albi can be reactive on leash to dogs that run up to her too quickly and don't respect her space. She loves all people and older children too.

She's 55 pounds and in good health. NO CATS. Owners are moving and cannot take her with them. Fostered in Grass Valley.

***ADOPTED 6/18***
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 5 years old, and absolutely darling! He loves all people and children, other dogs and cats. He has the sweetest disposition and a huge personality! Can open doors with his paws or teeth!

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. He came to us weighing 100 pounds and now weighs 60! He would do best getting running exericse daily.

FYI: Dogs with epilepsy can live long, happy lives. 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.

Bodie NCAR #1157
BODIE #1157
Bo or Bodie is a 7 month old black tri boy with his tail who we rescued 4/21. He was raised in a house with a doggie door and his litter mate. He had never been out of the house or been on a leash. He's learning quickly, and will do best in a home that will give him gentle guidance as well as obedience classes so he'll grow up to be a confident, happy boy.
He can be bratty and mouthy, so a home with experienced adults and children over 12 recommended. Fostered in Grass Valley. Contact

Tori NCAR #1154
Tori is a small 18 month old black tri girl.  She is very sweet & cuddly once she's sitting next to you, but does not come when called! She lacks confidence and definitely prefers outside to inside...but once she's inside she'll chose a place in a corner to relax, but will cuddle on the couch if she wants. She is extremely timid, startles easily, and is unused to suburbia.  She is fine with cats and other dogs, and will do best in a quiet home without children and with a playful, confident dog.  Tori is not at all aggressive, and will be a sweet companion for someone who is patient, keeps expectations low, and is willing to take a lot of time with this her by keeping her close and on a leash. She likes water, and likes to explore on her own and needs great fencing. Fostered in Grass Valley.
