Bonnie lives with Sylvia in San Rafael. Bonnie will go to work Sylvia and
spend her days right by her side....just what the doctor ordered!
Bonnie is a 10 year old breeding Aussie from the El Dorado Aussie Puppy
Mill. She is Sadie's half sister and has probably given birth to 100 or more
puppies in her lifetime. We had her spayed, her teeth cleaned, foxtails
removed, and she's a healthy, happy Aussie girl who loves to play and swim.
Wyatt NCAR# 169
Wyatt is a thinking dog....always weighing his options.
He trusts me completely and this will transfer to his
new owner. He was adopted several months ago, but his
owners gave him back when he proved too anxious and fearful
around their young neices and nephews. We believe Wyatt
to be about 4 years old.
Wyatt playing it cool
history: He had been seen running around the
Martinez area for months and was finally picked up by
Animal Control. He studied us intently with his beautiful
amber eyes and wanted to be with us, but not the center
of attention. He had fishing line tangled in his feathers
- proof that he had been on the run awhile. He liked petting
and brushing...he even gave us kisses on the cheek.
Commotion, crowds, strangers, people making sudden moves
or kids running around make him anxious. He is very protective
of the house and the car, too. Sudden movement above him
makes him hit the deck or nip. He hasn't broken the skin,
but it comes from nowhere and must be taken seriously.
We know that a quiet household without children and a
dog-savvy person is a must for Wyatt. He knows many commands
and is extremely smart and obedient.
He is used to making his own decisions yet will trust
"his leader." He can live with dogs, has lived
with a cat and should be introduced to people in the home
while on his leash. The good news is he looks to me for
reassurance and settles down quickly. I feel very
safe with Wyatt at my side or in my car...he would protect
Wyatt must be managed due to his protective nature
and nipping history. However, he has a goofy side that's
so endearing! He dances when he plays fetch, and jumps
around and gives me kisses every morning when he wakes
up! He really is an amazing boy. Fostered in Sacramento.

Friday lives in Atherton with a huge yard and people home with her all the time. This lucky 10 year old has a wonderful life ahead of her.
We pulled this girl on Friday, hence her new name! She
was a stray in the Shasta County Animal Shelter in Redding
who came in with another female Aussie mix. They wandered
to a house and made themselves at home on the front
porch! She stayed at the shelter a month!
She's a senior Velcro red tri with her long, fluffy
tail. She tested positive for heartworm and has just
completed treatment. She'll be just fine! She's glued
to my side, isn't fond of other dogs pushing into her
space when she's near me...kind of typical, older Aussie
behavior. I've groomed her, given her a bath, crated
her, clipped her nails....she's OK with it all. She
can live with cats, too! Fostered in Lafayette. Contact:
Kim at email@example.com
Rufus was adopted from the Yolo shelter about 6 months ago. He's a very
handsome black tri who is about 2 years old. His owners work long hours and
although they run him at least once a day, he's bored at home and starts
finding things to do. He's crate trained, but his owners don't feel it's
right to crate him 9 hours a day. He's about 50 lbs, very healthy, knows sit
and lie down, plays ball and jogs with his dad daily. He's very friendly
towards strangers, a bit on the submissive side, and gets along with other
dogs. He does not bark, even at strangers and love his belly rubbed! Rufus
is in Davis.

Poppy is a gorgeous red merle who turned 7 years old this
past July. She's 52 lbs, housebroken, crate trained, and
has completed 3 sessions of obedience with Perfect Paws
in San Francisco. She knows sit, sitstay, off, offstay,
stand, standstay, front, down and downstay. Poppy has
lived with two other dogs and a cat and her favorite activities
are playing Frisbee and chasing balls. She chases
and has nipped at the shoes of running toddlers and small
children, and because her family has a small child and
another on the way, they are looking for a wonderful new
home for her. Poppy is friendly, energetic, loving,
attentive, athletic and well behaved. Application required.
Poppy is in Santa Rosa. Contact Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Esprit is a 2 year old gorgeous , tri-colored Aussie girl.
Esprit has been at the shelter for such a long time and
despite this, she is super loving and sweet to all she
meets. Esprit is very smart, and like all Aussies will
need mental and physical stimulation. She is NOT a super
high-charged girl and stays peacefully in her kennel all
day without barking or acting stressed. Esprit chooses
her friends; she likes some dogs, but not every dog.Esprit
would prefer not to live with cats. Come in and meet lovely
Esprit today. She deserves a kind and loving home after
being here for such a long time...

Maya and Evelyn at home in Lake Almanor! Evelyn got EXACTLY the Aussie she dreamed about!
Maya and Evelyn
Maya is a kind and gentle little Aussie who found her
way into the Merced Animal Shelter. She is a cutie and
good on the leash. She is approximately 4-5 years old
and about 40 pounds. Mary has a terribly matted coat,
foxtails and is a sweet, sweet girl who has been neglected.
We're about to change that!
Fostered in Chico. Contact Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org
Maya lives with Evelyn at Lake Almanor. Here's Evelyn's letter to us after 2 days with Maya:
"What a delight this little girl is! I'm so lucky to have her. She loves to play and seems to enjoy her walks. We left her in the house last night while we were gone for about 2 hours and came home to nothing disturbed! When I was ordering her ID tag yesterday, I found an old one of Reba's (recently deceased Aussie) and of course started to cry. Maya got off her bed, came over and climbed on my lap and gave me a big kiss. What a love! Thank you for rescuing her."
"Bean" as we now call him, is used to getting
his way....but it's not too bad, cause he weighs only
4.8 pounds and is less than a year old...he is trainable
for sure. If he doesn't want me to wipe his face or
doesn't want to get out of the car and if I force the
issue, he has lightly nipped me, but he's improving
daily. He gets along with all the big dogs in my home,
seems to ignore cats, likes to sleep on the bed with
other dogs, isn't food aggressive and isn't yappy! He
He needs to put on a few more before getting neutered.
This boy was litterally scooped up from a busy street.
No one looked for him. Contact: Kim at email@example.com

Bear lives in Sebastapol with his new family who love him! He gets to run
daily and loves spending time with the kids!
Bear is a 15-18 month old black bi mini Aussie. Zoom!
Zoom! He's quick, agile, fun and sweet. His only issue
is he's food aggressive with other dogs. He'd be best
as an only dog, but his food aggression can be managed
by separate feedings or feeding him in his crate. He's
an absolute sweetie and although knows nothing but sit,
is pretty well mannered and responds to commands. He likes
table tops and cars, tractors and running around in the
house. He also doesn't like any dog to get close to his
person when there's food around.
Bear or Bearie as his foster parents affectionaltely call
him NEVER makes a peep! No barking and doesn't scratch
at the door to get in. He's great with everyone, even
little kids. But we wouldn't want a small child to get
between him and another dog fighting over food...so that
is a biggie. Fostered in Galt.

Sadie lives with Noel and Parker in Sacramento. Sadie will get to go to work
with them and have a wonderful life. We're thrilled for Sadie!
Sadie was one of Arthur's favorite breeding bitches. Over her 10 year life
at the El Dorado Puppy Mill, she had as many as 15-18 litters of
puppies...she was always pregnant, giving birth or nursing. In fact, she was
pregnant when we had her spayed. We gave her several baths, groomed her
which she loves, had her teeth cleaned, foxtails removed from her ears and
got her up to date on her shots. This is a lovely girl. Adopted 9/7
Red is Linda and Andy's constant companion in Los ALtos Hills. He's very
happy hanging in the yard, attending obedience classes with Linda, or going
to the dog park...we're really happy for him!
Andy, Red, Linda
Red is a handsome and energetic 15-16 month old red
merle who was found running down a busy street in Redding.
He's the poster boy for WIGGLE BUTT and the nicest boy
you'll meet. He is pushy and has some puppy-like behaviors,
but is very loving and loves everyone....even uniformed
men! An Aussie savvy owner (read "good leader")
would love this boy! He graduated from a 10 week obedience
He knows how to jump a fence, but hasn't tried it in
his foster home where he plays with his Aussie siblings
and has a doggie door to the house. We'd like to find
him a home where he'll get continued structure and training.
He loves the dog park and can live with a playful, well
mannered dog or dogs.
Red loves to swim and he took off after ducks and
just swam and swam, but came back when he realized it
was futile! Fostered in Sacramento. Contact: Kim at
O'Jo is a 3 year old shepherd mix whose owners are travelling
a lot, so he's left alone most of the time or boarded.
He's lived with them since he was a young puppy and he's
very nice, but a bit possessive about his food. He weighs
about 65 pounds, is housebroken, up to date on his vaccinations
and heartworm prevention. He graduated from obedience
classes, too! He knows sit, down, kennel up, let's go,
and "take it" for bone treats. He's an inside and outside
dog and is used to staying in a big kennel run when no
one is home. He has nice house manners and doesn't get
up on the furniture. He is happy and friendly around other
dogs and solicits pets from strangers. He has lived with
two cats and leaves them alone.
Although he was raised around 2 small grandsons, we don't
recommend he live with small children. First, he does
not like to be held down in any way, and second, because
he is food aggressive. He'll stare and growl if you reach
for his food bowl before he's done eating. He loves to
play with the balls, and his frisbee. He's a nice dog
for an adult home where they will manage his issue with
food. O'Jo is in Brentwood. Contact Kim at email@example.com.
