PANDA NCAR #1080
Panda is just 12 months old, 50 pounds, raised with teenagers, and a Labrador. Panda got plenty of car travel, went swimming in lakes and received lots of love. He's energetic, mischievous, crate trained and extremely biddable. He is doing great in beginning Agility here at the Sanctuary, has great focus and loves training!

His owner asked us to take him because he was traumatized about 3 weeks ago. He was in the car at a stop sign, when a man came up to the car window and barked through the glass at him. Poor Panda was scared out of his mind and is still recovering. We took him in to rehabilitate him and find him a new home where he'll continue to be desensitized to new people who get close.

He loves swimming in our pond and graduated with flying colors from Beginning Agility on 10/31 and is ready for more! Fostered in Grass Valley. Application required.

SMOKEY NCAR #1079
Smokey was a stray picked up in Susanville. No one came for this sweet, 6 or 7 year old blue merle. We had him neutered, gave him a minor dental and had the blackened foxtails removed from his ears. He's 45 pounds, has light blue eyes, is easy on a leash and very quiet and loving.
Smokey is not yet housebroken. He needs to be in a crate in the house when no one can watch him, and should probably drag a leash in the house until he understands. He's also a counter surfer! Smokey is great with cats!

Fostered in Grass Valley. Application required.

QUINCY NCAR #1108
Quincy turned 4 in June, 2018. She's a fun Aussie girl who is always by your side. She has lived with Darcy (see below) her whole life. She's a biddable, energetic, loving girl.

She likes to have her people all to herself, and will sometimes grrrrr at other dogs who want to get attention from "her" person....but it's not over-the-top. On leash she is a bit reactive towards other approaching dogs, but OK in dog parks and off leash. No idea how she'd be with cats. Quincy's father was an international champion - her build is muscular, she's in great shape at 50 lbs.

She loves to pounce on frogs and even brought a gofer home! She loves car rides! All records available and vaccines are up to date. Quincy is a candidate for obedience and agility training. We'd like to find her a home with no other dogs or cats. Fostered in Grass Valley. Application required.

DARCY NCAR #1107
Darcy, a sweet black tri girl who just turned 5 years old. Darcy used to love her crate as a puppy and still finds comfort under chairs and the sofa. She loves other dogs, and will solicit play. She has shown she can be headstrong, and not come when called if she's busy doing something else!

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 like a racehorse on a leash. Darcy loves getting attention from people and will sit still for hugs.

Darcy likes to chase squirrels and sits patiently beside gofer holes! Darcy is about 6 pounds overweight at 48 lbs. She loves car rides! Darcy is a candidate for obedience and/or agility training. We'd like to find Darcy a home with no other dogs or cats. All records available and vaccines are up to date. Fostered in Grass Valley. Application required.

"LIL" QUINCY NCAR # 1106
Quincy is a timid and sweet 14 pound toy Aussie whose owner brought her to a vet to surrender because she was afraid of the children and visitors in the home. She was purchased at 4 months of age with little to no socialization. She follows me everywhere, and after a week, she solicits pets and loves to be petted. She's crate trained, adorable and likes other dogs. She needs someone to leash her and gently show her the world. Fostered in Grass Valley.

LOUIE NCAR # 1105
Louie nipped at a running child and ended up in the Turlock shelter. The shelter staff said he was there all the time because he'd get out of his house and get picked up by Animal Control. I believe it was all in fun and he didn't mean to hurt anyone. He lived with young children, and seems to adore everyone he meets. He's very comfortable in the house or outside on our deck.

He's 20 months old, neutered, about 64 pounds, and very lanky and very loving. We will require obedience classes in his new home, and opportunities for daily running exercise. He gets along well with all the Sanctuary dogs, little or big. We don't know if he can live with 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 6 years old, about 60 pounds and will make a great companion Aussie 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.

RUFUS NCAR # 1100
Rufus was picked up in Auburn and had to stay in stray hold for 10 days because he was microchipped. The microchip was not registered by owner, so shelter staff had no one to contact. We rescued Rufus the first hour he was available and found him happy, albeit a bit nervous and Velcro.

Rufus is nervous around new people and needs proper introductions (on leash) and continued socialization with new people. He needs to feel safe which can be accomplished with simple behavior modification techniques.

Rufus was purchased from a ranch in SoCal and lived with a family with two young teenagers up until January 2018 when he was given away for reasons unknown. He lived with a cat nicely.

Rufie is 2 years old, about 46 pounds, and seems fine with all the other dogs here. He gets distracted easily by birds and noises, and will take off after deer and geese, but comes back when he's given up. This boy needs plenty of running exercise, a fenced yard and people who will continue his training. He is ultra sweet and loving in an adorable package. 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 hes 12-13 years old and was at the Sacramento County shelter. He spent his life unaltered, and we recently had him altered.

Hes 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. Hes on the mellow side except if another dog is on the other side of his fence.....then he makes trouble! Fostered in Marysville.
