Hazel NCAR #
Hazel is a 53 pound red merle with her tail. Hazel was found tied to the front doors of a shelter - no microchip, no collar, seemed well fed but her coat was severely matted. She spent 10 days in the shelter and became too afraid of new people and would hide in the back corner of her kennel. Staff determined she could not be shown and needed rescue.

She showed me she likes to be where I am, likes to play with other dogs and loves to play fetch. We guess her to be 3-4 years of age. She'll be spayed soon and available end of August.

***ADOPTED 9/19***
Folkor is a 4 year old boy who is loyal, riveted to his person and really isn't interested in playing with other dogs. He has some herding instincts, loves to ride in the car, is good on a leash, and lived with cats and another dog. He loves being groomed and jumped up on the grooming table like a pro. He's the quintessential companion Aussie. Fostered in Grass Valley.

*** Adopted 8/21 ***
Cooper will be 2 years old on September 3, 2020. He's a fun boy who hasn't received much attention or exercise since he was a young puppy. He's a nice boy who hasn't been exposed to many things, but comes around. He's housebroken and crate trained, but will find his own entertainment if left alone too long: Digs outside, gets into mischief inside. So far, his stay here has been uneventful and he's happy to play with most of our kids, or hang inside with them. He lived nicely with a cat and given the chance, will run around the neighborhood in his previous home. He must learn a good recall when off leash. Fostered in Grass Valley.

*** ADOPTED 8/26 ***
Shadow will turn 2 on 11/15/2020. He was abandoned by his owner in the house he rented. The landlord took care of Shadow for a few weeks before taking him to the shelter in Oroville. Because Shadow is microchipped, we know his birthdate and his name. He wasn't neutered when we pulled him, but he is now! He's a goofy boy who loves to run and hop and will still try mounting some dogs – but it's never aggressive and he stops quickly. He comes when called, knows how to sit and is fairly good on a leash. Unknown how he is with cats. Fostered in Grass Valley.

*** ADOPTED 8/28***
Shep did not have ear surgery today, 9/24 because the vet detected a heart murmur and wants a cardiologist to do an echocardiogram.

We took Shep from City of Berkeleyin late May after his owners brought him to an emergency hospital to be euthanised due to his vestibular disease. Owners were told his disease could be treated, but they declined treatment.

Shep is 8 or 9 and has suffered from middle ear infections for years which finally caused a vestibular attack (severe head tilt and mobility difficulties)
We've given him many rounds of treatments, had him neutered and so far, have spent $5,000 on his medical care.

He will have a echocardiogram ($1,000-$1,300) on October 22, and if his heart is healthy, he'll have ear surgery($900 - $1,200) in late October.


Shep is happy and playful. He's about 7-8 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 including all the vets! This is a very sweet boy who is feeling better and playing with toys!

***Available late October***
Rudy is a 3-4 year old Border Collie mix who was found in San Leandro with a broken chain around his neck. He's 56 pounds, loves to play fetch, is affectionate and will sit and hug you! His teeth are terribly worn, either from chewing on a tennis ball or his chain.
We'd like to see him find a home where he can be outside, have someone to throw the ball for him and of course spend time with him. He can live with easy going dogs, but not cats cause he chases them!

His DNA came back! He's 50% Border Collie, 25% Australian Shepherd, 12.5% White Swiss Shepherd White German Shepherd) and 25% mixture of several breeds. He is learning to fetch in the pond, is loving his freedom, and is improving on his recall! Fostered in Grass Valley.
