Aussies
NALA NCAR #1195
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.
Her owners asked us to rehome her because she would escape their yard and visit neighbors. Nala was not allowed in the house and slept outside. We feel she will do well being part of a family, being an inside/outside dog and getting the attention and training she deserves. Fostered in Grass Valley.

***AVAILABLE***
Oreo
Oreo is a 2 year old black tri who weights 57 pounds. He is sweet, loving, knows some commands and is crate trained. He is not trustworthy around his family?s pot bellied pig, so is kept separate at all times. 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 he/she wants 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, but may chase cats. Fostered in Grass Valley..

Ralphie
Ralphie is a fun 6 year old Black Tri who?s looking for an active and adventurous family. He loves swimming, hiking, and long walks on the beach (who doesn?t?). This guy comes with some formal obedience training under his belt. He knows sit, down, shake, high five and is crate trained. He rides beautifully in the car and has manners when out in public.

Ralphie isn?t a fan of small children. He is very anxious and uncomfortable in close settings with small children and has been known to nip the toddler in his previous home. We recommend children over 10 years of age. He can be a single dog or live with another easy going mellow dog. He has also lived with cats, but does need some supervision. Fostered in El Dorado.

***ADOPTED 9/11
Winston NCAR #1191

Winston is a strapping 2.5 year old red tri with his tail. He?s about 64 pounds, neutered and UTD on his shots. His owners acquired him 4 months ago from a private party. He barks aggressively at strangers that come by the house, or into the house, so should be on leash when introductions are made - strangers need to ignore him, then he?ll solicit pets.

Owners have a business and Winston was too barky with clients coming in and out, plus they didn?t have time to exercise him, so asked us to rehome him. He loved going to doggy day care and he played nicely with all the dogs. He is not possessive of food or toys. He loves cats and playing ball and is doing very well at the Sanctuary. Fostered in Grass Valley.

***ADOPTED 9/3***
Finley NCAR# 1185

Finley is a 5-year-old blue merle boy who has led a sheltered life. He lived in a house with his family until this past March when his owner lost his house. Finn had no formal training, and was lured with food for everything, so his recall is pathetic! He has lived in a car with his owner since March.

He likes to play fetch, needs work on a leash because he gets scared easily and may bolt. He plays with the non-threatening Aussies here. He's house broken, came in a bit pudgy and is now down to 55 pounds. He was purchased as a puppy from a breeder in the Czech Republic and has incredible lineage. He needs several obedience classes and an owner who has the patience to work with him. No 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.

NIKE

Nike is a healthy 14 year old black tri boy. He's 53 pounds, gentle, easy going and walks well on a leash. He loves to be petted and did fine with our groomer. He knows several commands and tricks.
He's ok with other dogs but NOT CATS. Nike got a dental in June and happy and healthy.
Nike"s owner is moving to Europe asked us to find Nike a great home. Nike needs a soft place to live in his remaining years - and is an easy keeper. Fostered in Grass Valley.

BANDI NCAR 2199
We have no history on Bandi as her owner died and there were no records. We do know that she likes people, is spayed, and our vet guesses 10-11 years young. We've updated her shots and given her a dental including blood work and she's 100% healthy!

She is down to 50 pounds and enjoys running with the dogs and will play fetch....but poops out soon. She's almost deaf, enjoys pets, liked her grooming and walks fine on leash. She guards her ball from other dogs, so she thinks the ball is pretty special! Yet, she plays tug of war with a stuffed toy with most dogs....go figure!
She would do best as an only dog, but does fine here with my crew.

She doesn't handle lots of stairs well...a few up to a deck or doorway is fine. She's stunning, loves people, including children, housebroken and easy-going. Fostered in Grass Valley.
