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 weighs a whopping 100 pounds ... but he's remarkably agile and wears his weight well!

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.

JOSH NCAR #1139
Josh is a 10 year old, neutered black tri we rescued from Carson City when his owner died. His brother is Jed NCAR #1138. He's anxious and hard to handle, but is getting used to his new routine at the Sanctuary. He is pushy and didn't like being groomed, so he was muzzled to calm him down. He likes people, but is a little aloof and hard to get a leash on. He seems to be OK with dogs that don't get in his face. He's 53 pounds and is used to living inside and outside. Fostered in Grass Valley.

JED NCAR #1138
Jed is a 10 year old, neutered black tri we rescued from Carson City when his owner died. His brother is Josh NCAR #1139.He's biddable, comes to me when called and more settled than his brother, Josh. He is fairly easy going and was a dream to groom. He likes people and seems fine with all the dogs here. He's 53 pounds and used to living inside and outside. Fostered in Grass Valley.

BLUE NCAR #1132
Blue is an ultra timid, 3 year old blue merle girl who was supposedly rescued from an abusive situation, although I can't confirm this. She loves other dogs, but is terrified of humans and will keep her distance. She zooms through thresholds or avoids them entirely. I'm luring her through doorways with a bowl of food...but I'm not always successful. This fearful behavior can only be changed if GOOD things happen when she goes through a doorway. A couple of minutes on a leash, per day helps.

She walks beautifully on a lead, is housebroken and good with cats. 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'll growl at 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 chases cats, but doesn't hurt them. He would do best in a home with someone who will run him an hour a day, take him to obedience classes and help him focus his energy. He will play fetch till your arm is tired, and loves people! He's a good boy. Fostered in Grass Valley. .

Mia NCAR #
Mia was out of time in the Modesto shelter - and yes, I did it again...I have a soft spot for the little yellow terriers. She is now about a year old, and was absolutely petrified and covered in ticks when we pulled her. Somehow, she slipped through the cracks and didn't get vaccinated or evaluated and sat in the shelter for 11 days before I saw her posting.
She is now less frightened, uses my doggie door, lovesthe other dogs here, but still barks at strangers. She likes to cuddle in my arms, is 8 pounds, spayed, microchipped and healthy! 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.
