Joey is an 8 week old black bi boy who was abandoned at a horse boarding facility. A kind woman noticed him under a trailer and realized he had no owner. She took him to her vet for an exam.

Hes 11 pounds, will likely mature to a regular sized Aussie boy. He knows sit and fetch and is getting housebroken. Hes still a bit shy and barks when visitors come, but once they call him, hell wiggle up for pets. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Nala is a sweet, 1.5 year old black tri who weighs about 48 pounds. She?s spayed, UTD on shots and microchipped. Nala lived with another dog, cats, chickens and children.She wants to play relentlessly, so she shouldn't be in a home with timid cats that run from her. She'?s getting along swimmingly here at the Sanctuary.

She would squeeze through the fence to find people to visit in her previous home. Here, she's always close to me! We feel she will do well being part of a family, being an inside/outside dog and getting the attention and training she deserves.Living with another fun loving dog a plus. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Oreo is a 2 year old black tri who weights 57 pounds. He is sweet, loving, knows some commands and is crate trained. His owner grabbed his collar to keep him from licking something in the garage and Oreo nipped him. I think collar grabs when a dog is invested in something is not wise, but for sure he should not be placed in a home with children.

He's had obedience classes, but needs much more training from an experienced person who has trained Aussies before. Oreo has a slow recall and cannot be off leash at this point. Oreo likes other dogs, is very sweet and is very strong. He may chase cats. 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.
