Rusty NCAR #757

Rusty, Colleen, Bella

Rusty is a big, loving and easy-going red tri boy whose owners moved into a nursing home. He's in great shape, about 9-10 years old, gets along just great with all the dogs here and all human visitors.I took him hiking at Sugar Bowl and although he huffed and puffed, he had a good time and stayed with the pack.

He's very comfortable on my sofa, and so deserving of a home of his own. He's always smiling and happy. Fostered in Grass Valley.

***ADOPTED 1/17***
Lola is a 17 month old blue merle who was born timid. She had lots of human time and training, but still fears children, lots of activity in the house, skateboards, and basically all the things associated with city living. She's very smart and loving and knows lots of tricks and commands and is currently enrolled in Agility to help build her confidence.

She's crate trained, 50 pounds, utd on shots and spayed. She would do well with an experienced, patient handler in a quiet home without children. She'd do well getting lots of running exercise daily. She's fine with other dogs and cats, loves tug-ropes, swimming, hiking and getting a rub down! She's lived chickens and will chase sheep, so maybe herding might be in her future!

She can lunge towards people wearing hats, or children when she's walked on leash, so country life with someone who will keep her stimulated and exercised would be the best living situation for Lola. Pond on the property a plus! Lola is in Chico.

Rusty and Harvey
Rusty and Harvey are living in Apple Valley with no fencing and owners who have new jobs that take them away from the home for long hours. Recipe for disaster. Rusty is 9 and his son, Harvey is 5. They are nice Aussies who are bored and people starved. We are looking for a foster home for them where we can get them both neutered and utd on shots before they go to a new home. Can be rehomed separately or together.

Bernie, NCAR #36

Bernard and his family

What a Disney Dog! Bernie is the quintessential wire haired terrier mix! Hes smart, cute, lively and confident. Hes 4 years old, calm and 16 pounds and lots of fun! Very respectful of cats.

He'd be VERY happy being an only dog, but could live with another mellow dog.! Fostered in Grass Valley.

Lucy NCAR #790
Anna, Angus, Lucy, Steve

Lucy is a 2 year old black tri who loves everyone and is a gigantic love bug. She has not had many life experiences, only lived on a ranch outside all the time, then penned up because she ran after the children. Now that shes been allowed in my home, she loves it inside! She plays well with Deuce and several others. An obedience class or two would help her gain some confidence. Fostered in Grass Valley.

***ADOPTED 1/8***
Luna NCAR #767
Luna and Anne

Sweet Luna had a hard life. She came into the shelter with torn ligaments, pregnant, broken and worn down teeth from years of flea biting, and Heartworm Positive. We got her ligament stabilized and shes using it nicely, we also treated her for heartworm and shes healthy now! She is a love bug, was a great patient at the vet, and ignores cats.

Luna does not like strangers to pet or lean over her head - for that reason she should not be placed in a home with children. She makes it very clear who she'll allow to pet her. Shes 5-7 years old and she weighs about 45 pounds.

Austin NCAR #782
Austin goes home

Austin is a gorgeous, 35 pound blue merle with his tail. Hes about 2 years old and very loving and sweet. He came into the Yuba County shelter as a stray and his time was up.

Hes darling, very attentive and would do well in an obedience class! He will fetch a tennis ball, can jump a 3 foot fence and gets along with all the dogs at the Sanctuary. He plays and plays with our dogs, but his favorite thing is to have his head in my lap. Fostered in Grass Valley.
