Tucker NCAR #
Trevor came into the Elko Shelter in Nevada as a stray. Hes a senior, very friendly and gets around great! He is deaf.

No one came for him so we pulled this Aussie/BC looking boy. This is his shelter photo, so you can imagine how great hell look once hes groomed and his bleached hair grows out. We will post more about him soon.

Bodie
Bodie is about 14 weeks old and was born 3/26/21. We are his 3rd home through no fault of his own. Hes confident, fun, smart, a little mouthy and big! Were looking for an herding dog - experienced home where hell continue getting the training and structure he needs.

No cats because hes way too interested in them. He could live as an only dog, or with another well trained, young adult Aussie with a good temperament. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Ringo NCAR #1189

We took Ringo, a Miniature American Shepherd, because his owner developed severe allergies to his dander 2 years ago and although she shaved him every 4 weeks, she could not be near him. She couldn?t snuggle with him on the sofa, and thought he deserved a home where he could be the love bug he is! Ringo turned 12 years young in March, is healthy, and weighs 32 pounds.

We are giving him a dental June 8, and he?ll be ready for his new home afterwards. He?s fine with other dogs and will play gently with them, walks well on leash, and is very sweet to everyone he meets. He knows Sit, Lie Down, In your house (crate), on your bed, in the truck ? and jumps right up onto the seat. Fostered in Grass Valley.

***ADOPTED 7/23***
Winston NCAR #1191

Winston is a strapping 2.5 year old red tri with his tail. He?s about 64 pounds, neutered and UTD on his shots. His owners acquired him 4 months ago from a private party. He barks aggressively at strangers that come by the house, or into the house, so should be on leash when introductions are made - strangers need to ignore him, then he?ll solicit pets.

Owners have a business and Winston was too barky with clients coming in and out, plus they didn?t have time to exercise him, so asked us to rehome him. He loved going to doggy day care and he played nicely with all the dogs. He is not possessive of food or toys. He loves cats and playing ball and is doing very well at the Sanctuary. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Finley NCAR# 1185

Finley is a 5-year-old blue merle boy who has led a sheltered life. He lived in a house with his family until this past March when his owner lost his house. Finn had no formal training, and was lured with food for everything, so his recall is pathetic! He has lived in a car with his owner since March. He likes to play fetch, needs work on a leash because he gets scared easily and may bolt. He plays with the non-threatening Aussies here. He?s house broken, came in a bit pudgy and is working his way down to 55 pounds. He was purchased as a puppy from a breeder in the Czech Republic and has incredible lineage. He needs several obedience classes and an owner who has the patience to work with him. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Handsome NCAR# 1188

There is no rescue group in CA for Miniature American Shepherds. Without knowing much about them, we took 4 very timid Miniature American Shepherds in May. They have been altered and microchipped now and need a lot of time to overcome their fears. They did not go anywhere, meet people nor spend any time on a leash. We have Handsome and Putt who are 2.5-year-old brothers. We have Cleo who is 3.5 years old, and her daughter, Freckles who is 1.5 years old. The males and females are not related. Handsome still will not take a treat from me, barks like crazy and is petrified of being touched. Handsome is a 2.5 year-old blue merle, about 27 pounds and the most fearful of the group. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Putt-Putt NCAR# 1190

There is no rescue group in CA for Miniature American Shepherds. Without knowing much about them, we took 4 very timid Miniature American Shepherds in May. They have been altered and microchipped now and need a lot of work to overcome their fears. They did not go anywhere, meet people or spend any time on a leash. We have Handsome and Putt who are 2.5 year old brothers and we have Cleo who is 3.5 years, and her daughter, Freckles who is 1.5 years old. The males and females are not related.

Putt is not quite as timid as his brother Handsome and will quickly take a treat from my hand and run away. Putt-Putt is a blue merle and 28 pounds. He allows me to pet him, but doesn?t solicit pets. Fostered in Grass Valley.

BANDI NCAR 2199
We have no history on Bandi as her owner died and there were no records. We do know that she likes people, is spayed, and our vet guesses 10-11 years young. We've updated her shots and given her a dental including blood work and she's 100% healthy!

She is down to 50 pounds and enjoys running with the dogs and will play fetch....but poops out soon. She's almost deaf, enjoys pets, liked her grooming and walks fine on leash. She guards her ball from other dogs, so she thinks the ball is pretty special! Yet, she plays tug of war with a stuffed toy with most dogs....go figure!
She would do best as an only dog, but does fine here with my crew.

She doesn't handle lots of stairs well...a few up to a deck or doorway is fine. She's stunning, loves people, including children, housebroken and easy-going. Fostered in Grass Valley.

RUSTY NCAR # 1183
Rusty was a stray who found his way into the Yolo County Shelter. He's a bit mouthy and has no training. If I put my hand near the top of his head, he hits the deck--but he's improving daily. He is not mean and likes to play with blankets and soft toys. He hasn't played fetch yet, but we'll keep trying!

He comes immediately to a whistle, and is still learning his name. He weighs about 50 pounds and needs gentle, positive guidance. We think he's about 2 years old. He'd be best in a home without other dogs or in a home with a playful, well mannered dog where he can get lots of human focused activities and training. Fostered in Grass Valley.

KONA NCAR #1178
We rescued Kona and Blue (Blue was adopted in March) from a bad living situation. They lived in filth for years, with their owner gone day and night, getting infrequent visits to fill their food bowls. Neighbors finally complained about the barking and we were called.

Kona just turned 9 years old and weighs 55 pounds and is in good health. He was purchased from a breeder when he was 4-5 months old. He was an outside puppy that didnt get socialized before being sold, and didnt get much socialization in his new home and subsequently, is uneasy when meeting strangers. He grew up with 2 very young children.

He is an easy keeper, loves car rides and crates easily. He has begun to play with other dogs now, but has absolutely no leash manners. He is a formidable watch dog and barks when people visit.

Kona needs a quiet home with a fenced yard, and needs to be introduced to strangers on a leash. Fostered in Grass Valley.
