Amigo NCAR# 1248

Amigo is a timid 5 year old, neutered red tri boy who was not socialized with people or dogs too much. He lived outside and played with the kids when they came outside in the yard. Hes sweet and petrified. No aggression at all.
He enjoys being in the house now, but still is a bit sketchy about coming when called.
He's about 35 pounds and walks easy on a leash unless he doesn't want to go somewhere then he puts on the brakes. Fostered in Grass Valley .

Jasper NCAR #

Jasper is an 8-9 year old Aussie/BC mix who we adopted to a ranching family in 2017. The family is selling their ranch and moving with their toddler to WA to be near grandparents.

Jasper is not great with their 3 year old and will not do well in a condo with patio. Jasper does best with women, can be aloof with men and nippy with small kids.    

Hes crate trained, LOVES the car and  can be outside night and day, does well with livestock, and with a little training, could be helpful with herding. Jasper is a good boy, just had a tough past before he came to us. He's 50 pounds, easy to manage if you follow his sensitivities. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Oso is a 42 pound, beautiful 3-5  year old Red Tri boy who we rescued from the Sacramento County Animal Shelter. He walks well on a leash and loves all people....doesn't really care about playing with other dogs and snaps at dogs who get in his face. Shelter named him Bear, we renamed him  Oso, but he comes to either name!

Dont know how his people never came for him

Rumor is a 34 pound, 5 year old blue merle who had to be trapped in September, 2021 during the Caldor Fire in El Dorado County. She would not come to anyone and was living off the land for at least 2 weeks before being trapped. She is quite skittish and very smart - an accomplished escape artist! On 9/20/21, she gave birth to three puppies at the Sanctuary. Her puppies have found great homes, and now it's Rumor's turn.

She wants to roam so fencing in her home must be bullet-proof. She's very playful with all dogs, terribly afraid of new people and needs to be introduced on leash. Rumor has been on Prozac for 5 months and it lessens her anxiety. We're looking for a home where she can play with dogs, not get out of her yard, and with a person who will take her on leash walks and introduce her to a non-threatening world. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Jake is a lively and fun 5 year old red tri. Jake weighs 54 pounds, is housebroken and neutered. He seems to like everyone person he meets, rolls over for belly rubs, plays fetch and tug of war.
He's strong and very determined to check out new dogs. Sometimes Jake gets puffy meeting new dogs, especially on a leash. We think a country environment would be best for Jake. If being leash-walked we recommend an Easy walk harness until he gets used to leash walks. No Cats for Jake!
He's very fun and loves to play fetch and plays nicely with my female dogs  .
Fostered in Grass Valley.
