Rigby was picked up by Animal Control dragging a leash. He had no ID or microchip, and was not neutered. He happened to be in the right place at the right time and I rescued him.

We think he's about 1 year old and may be a long haired Chihuahua mix. He's only 8 pounds, and has a darling grin and happy dance. He's smart, focused and ready for training. He's housebroken and gets along fine with all my crew. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Rosie went home with her new family today. Luke and Sophia love her already, and Rosie is soaking up all the love!

Rosie is a mix of many breeds, but owner told me her mom is Great Pyrenees, and her dad is Catahoula and German Shorthair mix. She's 48 pounds and 8 months old.

Rosieis a happy, sweet girl! She was raised in a condo with no yard, and went on leash walks daily. She outgrew that life style, and a friend of a friend asked me to help rehome her. She was raised with a 4 year old girl whom she followed everywhere. She's very sweet, crate trained, and enjoys the freedom she has at the Sanctuary. She's very puppy-ish, still chews on sticks and leaves, but not nippy.

Rosie may be a candidate for nose work or barn hunt! For sure, Rosie is ready to be part of a family again. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Bella just turned 5 years old this June. She's 60 pounds, very playful and loves everyone she meets. She's crate trained and although likes car rides, can get nauseous, but does best in a crate in the car. She's very easy to have around!

Bella is a pushy (and fun!) Aussie girl - she wants what she wants and would do well in an experienced Aussie home where she'll get training and learn to pay attention to her person. Bella has a sweet temperament. Fostered in Grass Valley. She has many tricks and knows lots of commands.

***ADOPTED 11/25***
TUX NCAR #1174
Tux was found as a stray in the Esparto area of Yolo County. He was badly matted with burrs. No one came for him in the shelter. He's a showy black tri, about 6 years old, 55 pounds and just gorgeous! He is housebroken, seems to have been groomed before, is quite biddable and likes being with me.

He loves car rides and walks well on a leash if there aren't dogs around to distract him! Tux gets uber excited and barky when he sees other dogs, but has improved greatly with daily leash walks. Surprisingly, he has no reaction to bicycles or horses!
I think a non-urban environment is best for Tux and a handler who will hike with him in open space and gently get his attention and reward him for having good leash manners. Fostered in Grass Valley.

***ADOPTED 12/8***
Liz wanted a sweet companion, and Daisy exceeded her expectations! Daisy really responded to Liz, and I'm thrilled for her.

Daisy's lived with an elderly couple in Grass Valley, and when they moved to assisted living, her family contacted us. She is about 11 years old, appears to be pure Border Collie, likes to swim, and likes sleeping indoors on a comfy bed. Her hearing is not great, she has a punctured ear drum which doesn't seem to bother her.

We gave her a dental including full blood work and she is completely healthy. She's only 28 pounds, very low key, but shows me enthusiasm by howling when I come home! Fostered in Grass Valley.

***Adopted 11/8***
Rudy is a 3-4 year old Border Collie mix who was found in San Leandro with a broken chain around his neck. He's 56 pounds, loves to play fetch, is affectionate and will sit and hug you! His teeth are terribly worn, either from chewing on a tennis ball or his chain.
We'd like to see him find a home where he can be outside, have someone to throw the ball for him and of course spend time with him. He can live with easy going dogs, but not cats cause he chases them!

His DNA came back! He's 50% Border Collie, 25% Australian Shepherd, 12.5% White Swiss Shepherd White German Shepherd) and 25% mixture of several breeds. He is learning to fetch in the pond, is loving his freedom, and is improving on his recall! Fostered in Grass Valley.
