December 2010 Recently Adopted Aussies

The list of adopted aussies is growing fast! Wonderful for the dogs but hard to show all on one page. We have split up the past adoptions by month. Use the links to see all our wonderful adoptions and adoptions we have assisted.

Gracie went home to Napa with Kent, Julia and “Cooper”. Cooper and Gracie hit it off right away, and Kent and Julia are patient, loving people who will undoubtedly help Gracie over come her fears. I’ll miss her, but am thrilled for her at the same time.

Gracie is an adorable 3 year old terrier mix who looks like she should star in a Disney movie. She was out of time at the crowded Tracy shelter, so we took her. She follows me everywhere, likes other small dogs and is quite energetic! She weighs 11 pounds and we give her 2 paws up for personality!

She is not friendly towards strangers and not a "jump in your lap" dog....although she's sweet with me, she needs lots of time to warm up to strangers. No children for this girl! Fostered in Grass Valley.

***Adopted 12/23***
Ben: Independent, Active Senior Looking for the Same!

Ben is a 13 year old terrier mix who found himself in a rural county shelter when his owner became ill. The EMT brought him in and no family or friends have stepped forward to help the old boy.

Ben enjoys the simple things in life . . a walk, stopping to smell the “roses”, good food and special treats, and warm blanket to snuggle on. Ben is a sweet old boy. He is a little hard of hearing and his vision isn't what it used to be but he is still full of enthusiasm, happy and content.

Solano Blue Merle Boy #A149278
This boy is frightened in the shelter environment, cautiously approaches a female kennel staff member but does not approach a stranger (me). He does not display any aggressive behavior and behaves as if he would be a lap dog if allowed to do so. He is about 20% smaller than the average size for his breed and was perhaps the runt of the litter. He has soft, needy eyes and his entire body shakes in the back of the cage. Otherwise he appears healthy, has apparently been cared for since his coat is not matted and looks as if he'd been bathed and brushed recently.
v He will not do well in the kennel environment and will not be adoptable from the shelter for that reason. He needs to go out to a rescue.

Solano County Shelter, Fairfield.

Sandy NCAR #634
Sandy lives in Petaluma with a wonderful, loving family. She is surrounded by love and is learning not to jump fences to chase cats! She is a challenge and totally loved!

Sandy is a 4 year old spayed blue merle Aussie who has spent her entire life chained up or confined to a yard. She learned to jump the fence and because she ran all over the neighborhood, was chained by her owner. She's very agile and strong and would love to be a "Go everywhere with her person" Aussie! She is wonderfully obedient and loyal and is fine with all people and children.

She arrived at our Sanctuary on 5-22 and likes all visitors and is not at all threatening. She loves men and women and children. She has great recall, is sweet and hangs in the house for hours with no problems. She likes going on our off leash hikes, is playful with other nice dogs, but doesn't need to live with another dog. NO CATS. Fostered in Paradise.

Charli is a 12 week old, 20 pound Aussie mixed with German Shepherd or something big. She may have some hearing loss. She’s now spayed and doing great and ready for a great home where she’ll get training and lots of guidance so she’ll grow up to be a well mannered girl. Charli is in Sacramento.

***ADOPTED 12/15***
Paco wiggled his way into Babe and Jacqui’s hearts. He wandered onto their lawn one day and never left. He and Leo (adopted from NCAR) are best buds!

Paco is a 7 pound Chihuahua found running loose in Sacramento. He’d been on the run a long time and neglected. Lucky for him, Jacqui (Leo’s Mom) took him in, got him shots, cleaned up and examined by her vet. He’s between 6 and 10 months old, will be neutered by our vet right after Thanksgiving and able to go to his new home soon after. He’s fine with cats, is learning to share his people with Leo (Jacqui’s Aussie) and quite a snuggle bunny. Application required. Paco is in Sacramento.
