Cookie Cookie NCAR #
Cookie is a 6 pound, 8 month old terrier mix who came into the San Jose Animal Shelter with a broken leg. She was listed as “rescue only” due to her injuries so a member of the public could not adopt her.

We were contacted by someone who offered to adopt her if we would pull her under our rescue group….so we did, and then that person chose not to adopt her so Cookie is with us. We had her spayed and got her the surgery she required to fix her leg. She’s a darling little feather of a girl and knows her name, knows stay and is crate trained. She is still recuperating and will be available for adoption by July 1. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Penny Penny NCAR #
Penny is an 11 month old, 14 pound Miniature American Shepherd. Her owner bought her as a puppy and learned quickly that Penny is quite timid and although she tried to socialize her, she feels she doesn’t have the time to take her through training and build her confidence.

Penny is not for the first time dog owner and needs a patient, experienced person to guide her through adolescence. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Bear Bear NCAR #
Bear is just 20 months old and about 42 pounds. He needs to fatten up a bit to about 45-47 pounds. He’s a lovely red merle whose owners purchased him as a puppy. They became overwhelmed with life and six young children and asked us to rehome him.

Bear is friendly, loves to run and play with everyone here at the Sanctuary, and has good manners. He lived with 6 young children and doesn’t have a mean bone in his body.Bear is ready for obedience classes and agility. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Bella Bella NCAR #1074
Bella is a 5 year old, 48 lb blue merle whose young family lost their home and could not find a place to rent that allows dogs.

Bella was raised as an only dog, lived with a cat and a 1 year old infant. She's scared of other dogs coming near her, but I’m helping her get desensitized by letting my well-socialized Aussies out with her. She does not play with my Aussies, but she loves to play fetch, and she loves to swim in our pond! She's very loving, likes being near me and is a great house dog. She rides well in the car, too. Fostered in Sacramento.

Marley Marley NCAR #1060
Marley is a big, lovey black tri boy who vets estimate to be 4-5 years old. He belonged to a man who worked in a warehouse and was everyone’s “mascot” until the man was laid off and disappeared, leaving Marley at the warehouse. The man’s cell phone was disconnected. We’re putting his history together just with this story and his behavior.

Marley is very comfortable in the house, likes to fetch, likes all people and is a big boy at 65 pounds. He briefly stayed at someone’s home where he seemed quite fixated on her 2 cats and 2 birds. I’m thinking he has not lived with either! Fostered in Grass Valley.

Beau NCAR #1042
Beau is approximately 10 years old and is blind. He’s a handsome blue merle who was found in San Jose. No one was looking for him.

He is Velcro, loves everyone he meets and will ask for belly rubs! He stays close, is easy on a leash and would do well with a well behaved, friendly dog who he will feel comfortable with if humans aren’t around. He’d do best with people who have a safe, comfortable yard and one story house. I am certain he was attacked by other dogs due to being intact and understandably, he can be defensive when meeting new dogs and is not a candidate for dog parks. He's fine in a yard alone or with another dog for stretches of time. He plays nicely with dogs that he knows and that don't threaten him.

He’s happiest being close to me and does very well navigating around the Sanctuary. Beau is a very loving boy. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Dodger NCAR# 1039
Dodger is a 53 pound, 4 year old Black Tri boy. Dodger was left long hours and began escaping and barking. Neighbors complained, and his owners couldn't afford day care or a dog walker. He does not like to be crated or in a kennel, but has adjusted to our large kennels at the Sanctuary. He's fine in the house as long as someone is home with him. He should not be left alone for long periods of time in the house unless he has access to a doggy door.

He's loving and smart and fine left with my other dogs outside at the Sanctuary….just wants to be near me….sound familiar? Dodger knows sit, stay, down, come, heel and leave it and graduated from obedience class. He'd do best in a home with no other dogs and no cats. Fostered in Grass Valley.
