Rufus went home to San Jose with Ron and Gloria. He'll start obedience immediately, go on long hikes and get lots of love and car trips!


Rufus was picked up in Auburn and had to stay in stray hold for 10 days because he was microchipped. The microchip was not registered by owner, so shelter staff had no one to contact. We rescued Rufus the first hour he was available and found him happy, albeit a bit nervous and Velcro.

Rufus is nervous around new people and needs proper introductions (on leash) and continued socialization with new people. He needs to feel safe which can be accomplished with simple behavior modification techniques.

Rufus was purchased from a ranch in SoCal and lived with a family with two young teenagers up until January 2018 when he was given away for reasons unknown. He lived with a cat nicely.

Rufie is 2 years old, about 46 pounds, and seems fine with all the other dogs here. He gets distracted easily by birds and noises, and will take off after deer and geese, but comes back when he's given up. This boy needs plenty of running exercise, a fenced yard and people who will continue his training. He is ultra sweet and loving in an adorable package. Because of his reactivity, we think he'd do best in an adult home or with children 14 and over. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Lil Quincy found her loving home with Alex and Amber and her Golden brother, Otis in Morgan Hill. Her new people work from home, and will give her the guidance and training she needs to become more confident.


Quincy is a timid and sweet 14 pound toy Aussie whose owner brought her to a vet to surrender because she was afraid of the children and visitors in the home. She was purchased at 4 months of age with little to no socialization.

It took me a week before I could touch her, but now she follows me everywhere, and she solicits pets and loves to be petted. I took her to Carmel Beach with me and she stayed close and enjoyed running with my Aussie.

Quincy is now about 16 months old, crate trained, adorable and likes other dogs. She needs someone to leash her and gently show her the world. OK with cats. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Frankie is a 2.5 year old Aussie mix with his tail. He's about 36 pounds, crate trained and housebroken. He's used to running every day with his former owner.

We adopted him to a young family about a year ago, and even with training, he was not trustworthy with their 18 month old son.

He would love being an only dog in an active, adult homeā€¦older teens OK. I'm working on getting his attention with treats and giving him praise for coming to me. He's ok with the dogs here, but I feel he would really enjoy being an only dog soaking up all the attention and training. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Smokey was a stray picked up in Susanville. No one came for this sweet,7 or 8 year old blue merle. We had him neutered, gave him a minor dental and had the blackened foxtails removed from his ears. He's 45 pounds, has light blue eyes, is easy on a leash and very quiet and loving.
Smokey is not yet housebroken. He needs to be in a crate in the house when no one can watch him, and should probably drag a leash in the house until he understands. He's also a counter surfer! Smokey is great with cats!

Fostered in Grass Valley. Application required.
