Iggy and Blue, NCAR #
Iggy and Blue are wonderful, blue merle Border Collies whose owner boarded them with a veterinarian in November, and is unable to take them back. We have been asked to find them a great home...together!
Iggy is a 6 year old male, and Blue is a 10 year old female and they spent their earlier years in Costa Rica hanging out on the beach while their owner taught wind surfing. They've been around all sorts of people and dogs, and have lived with a cat.
They are healthy, smart, Frisbee-loving Border Collies who deserve a wonderful home. Contact: Kim at email@example.com

Annie (now Sandy) lives with Jon, Shannon and Patrick, their 3 year old son. Sandy plays nicely with Patch, her pretty Aussie sibling who the family previously adopted from us.
This pretty red merle girl is a little shy, but warms
up nicely. We think she's about 2 years old. We just pulled
her from the Yolo County shelter 12/16 and are still getting
to know her. She is playing nicely with the other Aussies,
but still has kennel cough so we're trying to keep her
quiet! She seems very sweet and mild tempered so far.
Fostered in Sacramento Contact: Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org
Jake lives in Atascadero with his new brothers Fletcher and Wagner. They are
all getting along swimmingly! Jake is far right.
This wonderful 9 or 10 year old boy is looking for a
new home. He is a big boy and very, very sweet. Jake
is very gentle, walks on a leash, and sits on command.
Jake gets along great with other dogs as he is submissive.
We recently had Jake neutered and he's up to date on
his vaccinations. Jake is fearful of loud noises and
fireworks. The ranchers around his home have been setting
off bird bombs on a regular basis and so Jake was given
tranquilizers. We have moved him to a quiet foster home
in Red Bluff where he's doing great and is a welcome
house guest! Contact: Kim at email@example.com

Bob is a pretty boy who ended up in the Salinas Shelter.
He's a wiggle butt and loves to meet new people. He's
good with other dogs and now lives fine with cats! He's
on the submissive side, rides well in the car and seems
like an all around nice Aussie who seems to like children.
Fostered in Oakland. Contact Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org

Stubby is a Cattle Dog mix that was brought to our shelter
by a couple who found him abandoned in their neighborhood.
He was very scared when first found and avoided all
contact with humans. But, after being fed and provided
with a kennel, Stubby warmed up by the next morning
and was wagging his tail and licking hands. Stubby does
not appear to have been obedience trained, but he is
a very quick learner and has arleady picked up a few
commands. Stubby is a very nice dog who hasn't had the
advantage of a good home up to this point.
Rescued by the Milo Foundation, Berkely.

Sadie Marie is a two year old female that weighs about
40 pounds. She didn't get along with the female Pitbull
in her family, so she was surrendered to the Lompoc Shelter.
Sadie is a wonderful dog! She walks well on lead, loves
her ball, camping and swimming. She is crate trained and
sleeps in one at night. Left outside during the day when
nobody is home. No reports of bites on humans but is dog
aggressive. She gets along with cats and loves kids. Owner
says that her household is busy and active (2 kids 10
& 12) with lots of visitors and that Sadie is excited
and friendly with the visitors. She has a solid recall
and is a confused/scared Velcro Aussie. Contact Dave Swinson
at 805-934-1645 or Topaussies@msn.com.

Ivy lives with her new family in Los Gatos. She is already soaking up all the attention and will start puppy obedience classes soon!
Ivy is a darling, sweet and playful 12-14 week old pup
with her long, silky coat and docked tail. She came
in the night drop box with her sister who was immediately
adopted. Ivy was in sick bay at the Sacramento County
Shelter because she had a broken foot.
Our terrific vets at Sacramento Animal Hospital took
X Rays and determined that all 4 toes were broken and
started healing improperly. So...Ivy had surgery on
11/18 and should be good as new in about 8 weeks. The
surgeon thought she was between 3 and 4 months old.
She's very tiny, so she may even be a mini Aussie or
mini Aussie mix. One thing is for certain, she was a
favorite at the vet hospital!

If you'd like to help with Ivy's surgery, please donate
or mail a check to NCAR, PO Box 191661, Sacramento,
CA, 95819. Fostered in Sacramento. Contact: Kim at email@example.com
Tess NCAR #234
Tess is living in Magalia with Eleanor and her 15 year old Aussie, BJ. Tess
is enjoying the attention she's getting both from Eleanor and BJ!
BJ, Eleanor and Tess
is an 8 or 9 year old sweet black tri who was picked
up by Stockton Animal Control. She had recently given
birth and had a long term battle with fleas. Now that
she's cleaned up and on medication, her coat is coming
She's very spry and is your typical Velcro Aussie.
She's a small working Aussie at about 40 pounds who
is cute as a bug's ear, very biddable, and easy to handle.
She does like to run and chase other dogs, but doesn't
fetch. She's spayed, completely healthy and ready for
a home of her own. Fostered in Sacramento. Contact Kim
Trouble will be 1 year old on December 6. He's a lovely black tri who has
had lots of training and grew up with a 2 year old. Unfortunately, he's
gotten away with nipping at her on occasion, and so we are finding him a new
home. He would do fine with older children and in a home where he will get
leadership. He's a good boy and sweet tempered. He's lived with cats, too!
We also are thinking of a new name for him! In Sacramento.

Andre and Pepper
Andre fell for Pepper the first time he saw her at the Sacramento County Animal Shelter. Unfortunately, she flunked temperament testing and was deemed "unsocial" because she barked at everyone who came near her cage. Heartbroken, Andre called me for help. I met him at the shelter and went into Pepper's kennel, put a leash on her and off to the play yard we went. She tested beautifully, so I rescued her and brought her home where she played with many other Aussies. She is happily living with Andre and his family.
Penny is living in Salinas with Karen and her new sister, Mini. Karen has taken Mini (a very fast Border Collie) through agility training ~ now it's Penny's turn!
Penny NCAR #224
Penny is a tiny, timid, red tri mini Aussie girl. She's
20 pounds, with a light coat that may come in thicker
with maturity. She will be two in May, '06 and is a
nervous nelly...but very smart and food motivated, so
should train easily. Penny is loving and devoted to
her person, although she's learned she can get away
with not coming when called! She would do best not babied,
although she's really is a cuddle bug.
She lived as an only dog her whole life, and spent
long days waiting for her owners to come home. She's
soaking up all the attention in foster care and doing
OK living with 8 standard Aussies! She's eating like
a small horse, so she's gained a bit in foster care!
She loves people, although howls and barks when strangers
come into the house. But she does love petting and likes
to sleep nestled next to her foster mom. She would probably
be happiest as an only companion to someone, but has
proven that she can live with other dogs of all ages,
including two tiny 7 week old puppies! Fostered in Sacramento.

Luna found a great home with a woman in Washoe County, Nevada, who is experienced with dogs. Luna will be mostly an inside with her new owner.
is a young husky/shepherd mix who is shy and sweet, with
beautiful soulful blue eyes. She was abandoned with Wylie
when her owners were arrested! They lived on the lam for
more than a year with the help of some good samaritans
who fed them. You can read all about her at Luna
and Wylie's story. She is devoted to Wylie (whom she
was found with) but isn't so sure of other dogs, at least
Wylie has been adopted and now it's Luna's turn. Luna
is being fostered by Doggy Day Care in Reno. If you are
interested in Luna, please contact Connie with WARF at
775-831-1730 to submit your application, or call Tim at
Doggy Day Care at 775-825-3647.
Lucy is a 3 year old, slightly timid Aussie girl. She's
a small, pretty Blue Merle who weighs only 30 pounds and
is used to daily running exercise. She's used to going
on trail rides with her mom and follows along nicely and
never strays. She is also comfortable spending time in
her crate where she can see what's going on. She's timid
with strangers and doesn't like loud noises, so a quiet,
adult home would be best for Lucy. She lives on a 2 acre
ranch and loves to run, run, run! She also lives part
time in a condo at Lake Tahoe where she isn't happy because
the noises in the hallway or next door make her nervous.
She loves toys, going to the stables, hiking and trail
riding with her mom. She is being rehomed because she
is dominating the 14 year old Yorkie in her household
and has nipped her a few times. She plays with other dogs
nicely, but seems to dominate this senior, small Yorkie.
It's very difficult for her mom to let her go, but she
feels it's the right thing to do. Contact Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org
Madison is a pretty red tri who will be six years old
on January 12, 2006. She was bought from Peacock Aussies
as a pup and is up to date on all her vaccinations.
She acts really aggressively when strangers approach
her as she's on a leash walk. She seems to do better
off leash on the beach or in a park. So urban living
is out for Maddy!
She's very loving and we need to find her a home soon.
She loves playing with other dogs and loves car rides.
She LOVES playing in water anywhere...anytime! She's
a bit overweight right now, but other than that, in
perfect health! She lives in Newport Beach and since
she loves the water, another home where she has access
to water would be great! Her owner is moving and can't
take her with her. Contact Kim at email@example.com.
