commands. This happy boy will go on trips to the beach in a luxurious motor
Wally, Dan & Laurel
This fun red merle was a stray. He's neutered, plays fetch
and Frisbee and is a very funny 2 year old boy! He is
a double merle, a puppy from a merle-to-merle breeding.
We evaluated him and gave him little scratches on his
butt, so each time he returned the tennis ball, he began
coming back rear -end first! He had everyone in stitches.
He's deaf, but doesn't miss a beat and is very attentive.
Wally is doing well in foster care, playing nicely with
his foster brother. He's sleeping in the crate, loves
playing in the water outside, loves his tennis ball, etc.
A sweet, sweet boy! The opthamologist reported that he
has an operable "incomplete cataract" in his
right eye which slightly impairs his vision in that eye,
and that he has 100% vision in his left. He loves to retreive
as well as "herd" 5 gallon white buckets in the yard.
He watches his foster mom for clues and watches his foster
brothers for dog clues. This is a fabulous dog with all
the right traits. A Velcro Aussie who loves the world!

Gabriel, Ballou and Charlene
Ballou is a 1 year old spayed blue merle. She's been raised
around all sorts of animals and likes cats and other dogs.
Her owners got her when she was a puppy and gave her lots
of love, but their demanding jobs prevented them from
giving her the stimulation and training she needed. Her
owners felt she deserved more in life and with tears in
their eyes, asked us to find her a wonderful new home.
She likes children and would do best in a home where she'll
get training, another Aussie to play with, and plenty
of human attention. This girl is friendly, playful and
has a solid temperament. She loves petting and can be
handled easily. She's food motivated, quick and agile,
but not hyper. She is quickly adjusting to her new life
in foster care and enjoys being in the house with her
foster family and two Aussie siblings. Fostered in Santa
Rosa. Contact: Cyndi at Cyndi@norcalaussierescue.com
Bella is about a year old, 40 pounds and has her long fluffy tail. SHe was
adopted several months ago from the Fresno SPCA. The family who adopted her
have cats and she's cat aggressive! She's also a handful, and no one in the
family seems to have the time to take her through obedience training. She's
housebroken and sleeps on the couch or on a dog bed and would do best with
someone with time to devote to her. She likes children, but small children
under 10 may excite her too much! Bella is a smart girl looking for a more
qualified home. Located in San Anselmo.

Checkers, NCAR #162
Checkers is a 6-month old spayed female black tri Aussie. She's beautifully
put together and has a very good temperament. This girl was surrendered to
us because her owner couldn't give her the attention she deserves. Checkers
spent her life outside barking at the neighbor's horse. Now that she's in
foster care, she's soaking up lots of attention and responding very well to
training. Fostered in Brentwood.

Shadow NCAR #156
Shadow, now named Lilly and her new mom and dad in Yreka!
Lilly and family
This cutie pie is a 7 month old Aussie mix, lived with
children, is spayed, housebroken and crate trained. She
did not get much attention or training so we are looking
for a home where someone will be with her a lot and give
her guidance and training. She is very loving and should
become more confident in the right home. We pulled her
from the shelter in Redding where her owners surrendered
her because they were moving. She is very sweet, and doing
great in a home with other dogs. Fostered in Chico. Contact

NCAR #157 (formerly Jessie)
Pippin or "PIP" as we affectionately call him
now, is a two year old, neutered Border Collie rescued
from a family who was neglecting him. He spent 4 days
locked in a garage while the owner went to LA. Neighbors
rescued him and easily got written permission from his
owner to give him up to rescue. This is a sweet boy who
is under-nourished, shy, but willing to warm up. He has
had a limited range of life experiences and is frightened
easily. He is learning to trust strangers, but will still
bark at them at first. He is fine with a Yorkie as well
as two Aussies in his foster home and likes to play with
every dog at the dog park....so much so that he doesn't
come when called! He is now crate trained and housebroken.
He is recovering from a flea allergy and his coat should
come in soon. He loves his ball and will play catch by
himself if no one is around to throw it for him! Border
Collie lovers will really appreciate Jessie! Despite his
rocky start, he seems basically resilient and friendly.
We'll see how he is on sheep and give updates soon. Fostered
in Napa. Contact: Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org
Roamy is a 6-year-old Neutered Male Australian Shepherd. Although his name indicates that he may wander off and “roam”, he is really more of a Velcro dog. He wants nothing more than to be with his owner and spend time with them. Roamy was very overweight when he came to us and is on a strict diet now. He has currently lost a total of 10 pounds, but should probably loose at least 10 more. It was also determined that he has a thyroid condition that is easily treated with medications. He must be on the medicine for the rest of his life, but it is under $10 a month for the pills. He eats the pills with his food, so no struggling with him! Roamy is an absolutely wonderful housedog. He has NEVER had an accident in his foster owners’ house, and is very good at signaling if he has to go out and go to the bathroom. He is extremely loving to both the man and the woman of the house and is good with dogs, cats, parrots, and livestock. Roamy loves to play fetch and he “talks” to you when he is excited. He is crate trained, he knows how to sit, he will go to his bed when told, and he walks well on leash. He is also excellent off leash and stays within voice range. He comes back immediately when called. It is important to understand the Aussie temperament and their little quirks. Like many other Aussies, Roamy is very shy with new people. He hides behind his foster owners and would prefer it if people just ignored him. He would do best in a household with no children. Roamy does like other dogs, but can sometimes become aggressive with other dogs with dominant personalities. He would do best in a home as a single dog, or with an easy going female. Please consider this dog to be your new friend. He will be your faithful companion. His adoption fee is $200 plus a $50 training deposit. All dogs can be seen at Petco or by appointment unless otherwise noted. BEFORE YOU EMAIL US, PLEASE SEE THE MAIN PAGE OF OUR WEBSITE FOR DATES AND TIMES OF ADOPTION EVENTS AND FOR GUIDELINES TO ADOPT A DOG FROM 4 PAWS. We can only answer questions about animals on this site by email. We are unable to return phone calls about pets available for adoption.
Dolce (formerly Sissy) lives a great life with her new mom and dad. She goes
jogging several times a week and to the park where she plays with other
dogs. She also loves to play with the cat in her home!
Sissy is a mature, spayed female English Shepherd. She's
polite and OK with other dogs. We pulled her from the
very full Merced Shelter and she's being fostered in the
Bay Area. This is a very nice girl! Contact: Greta at
Check out this cool looking dog! She's an Australian Shepherd and is very likely pure. We can't see anything else in her. She has the lovely Blue Merle coloring which is the hallmark of that breed. Great Gal. She's friendly and gets along with other dogs and all ages of children. Her former owner gave her up because of her barking. But she received no training or didn't seem to have any playtime. This is a great dog with a lot of potential, if you'd just give her a chance and a lot of love. Her name is MORIAH and this 3+ year old is stunningly beautiful, come on by and see for yourself. We now have a new Adoption Form that has to be approved before any of our pets leave. You can find it at www.co.amador.ca.us Go to Dept. Listings...Then to Animal Control...Then to Adoption Form. If you are coming to the shelter to see MORIAH, call to see what to bring. Their number is (209) 223-6378.
Meet BLUE, a wonderful White/Merle Australian Shepherd Mix. He is a Handsome dog with light blue eyes. He arrived at our shelter over a few weeks ago. The sad thing is that no one came looking for him. BLUE just loves to go out on long walks and play outside, eager to please, and very smart, he is just waiting and hoping that someone will come along and want to make him part of their family. BLUE seems to have had a little training because he seems to know how to shake hands. We now have a new Adoption Form that has to be approved before any of our pets leave. You can find it at www.co.amador.ca.us Go to Dept. Listings...Then to Animal Control...Then to Adoption Form. If you are coming to the shelter to see BLUE, call to see what to bring.

Jake was adopted into a home in Redding where he will be going on trail rides and getting lots of love and attention!
Jake is a beautiful red tri Aussie boy, 6 years old, neutered weighing only 45 pounds. He is up-to-date on all his shots and heartworm prevention medication. His family has had him since he was a puppy, but now find that their lives have radically changed and they just don't have the time to give this boy the attention and exercise he needs. What Jake really needs is to be with his family all the time. Being left alone for long periods of time is very stressful for him, and so his ideal home would be with someone who works at home. He currently lives with a 3 year old child and is very good with her. However, because Jake is somewhat fearful when meeting people for the first time, it is probably best that he not live with toddlers, at least not right now. With training and socialization, Jake should become a far more confident dog. He is great with other dogs and lives with cats. He is located in Elk Grove.

Pearl in Red Bluff Shelter - I.D: 11-16-04 6
Pearl is a gorgeous lady and she shows off her regal beauty and distinctive coloring quite well. We are guessing her age to be around 8 years old and she currently weighs 46 pounds. She is a very easy going, casual girl. She is also a quiet, gentle girl, who is observant of her surroundings and always aware of what is going on. She seems to be a healthy girl even though she is older. She is responsive to you but also likes some time alone. She didn't show us that she knows any commands but she may be bluffing. However she does walk well on a leash. This mellow girl is in need of a grooming and then she will be set to spend her time with you in a new forever home.

Daisy May and Family
is a 5 - 7 month old Border Collie/Cattle Dog/Aussie mixed
puppy. She fun, curious, energetic, confident and quite
smart! She loves to play with other dogs she knows, but
is a bit fearful and aggressive with strange dogs, but
we're working on that. We hope to find a home where people
appreciate her intelligence and energy and will enroll
her in puppy obedience class so she learns WHILE she's
See video of Daisy [262 KB]
She loves watching me in the mirror, and sometimes runs
around the back of the mirror to find me, but mostly she
understands it's a reflection and turns around to say,
"Hi....how did you get there?" She is learning to "leave
it" when a dog growls at her, or doesn't want to play
with her. She would do well with another playful young
dog, either female or male as she is still quite the puppy.
She's potty trained, spayed and crate trained. This is
smart, a bit dominant and fun girl who loves people! Children
8 and older OK. She's living with an 11 year old girl
and a chihuahua and a senior Aussie and doing great. Fostered
in Hayward. Contact: Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org
Charlie is an energetic 7-8 month old tri-colored beagle pup who is looking for a new pad to call his own. His previous owner's just could not keep up with his energetic puppy self! He loves everybody- adults, children, other dogs (though a little timid) and is curious about cats.
He is healthy, current on his shots, and is up to date on heartworm prevention. He is crate-trained, house-trained, but still a puppy - manners, like getting his front paws on counters, were not taught in his first home so he is slowly learning in his foster home.
Did I metnion that Charlie was active? He loves to run and run and run. Charlie knows how to walk on a leash and, as with all beagles, needs to be on a leash when not in a fenced-in area. He is charming and sweet and very affectionate, sensitive and soft.This little guy is eager to please and just wants to find a family that can keep up with him and show him the love he deserves.
If you would like to learn more about this precious puppy, please call Nancy at 916-435-8009
