August 2006 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.
View the dogs below. Click on their pictures to see a larger image. The links above will take you through our different categories of listings.

Berney is a 5 year old mini black tri. He weighs 35 lbs and loves to play fetch! He needed another home because he fights with his step brother every time they are together. His heartbroken owners moved to a new house, work long hours and needed to separate them all day. Neither dog was more responsible...they antagonized each other!

Berney fetches the newspaper and brings it into the kitchen and waits for his treat! He adores all the neighborhood children and loves the Frisbee! At times, he has been aggressive towards other dogs while walking on his leash, but is OK with other dogs at the dog park cause all he wants to do is catch his Frisbee!

Berney is doing great in one of our foster homes in Sonora where he lives with two other mini Aussies without incident. Contact Nancy at

Jackson NCAR #265

Jackson, Ashley and April
Jackson lives in Sacramento with Ashley and his Aussie sister, April. Ashley has brought out the best in Jackson and he already loves his new home and new "sister"!

Jackson is a 6 year old Blue Merle with his fluffy tail and came to Best Friends in Utah from another rescue group 3 years ago. Before that, he stayed with a different rescue group in Idaho that closed down. This boy has lived most of his life without a family to call his own.

Jackson is a very sweet and shy Aussie boy who is now coming to strangers. He'd prefer to stay in the background. He takes treats from my hand and gives me a wiggle and a wag each morning. He now will greet people he knows, too! He loves riding in the car, going on walks and he LOVES....I mean LOVES the dog park! He also loves stuffed toys!

Jackson's learning to be off leash in open space, too! I have him on a long line and practice far, so good! He is totally sweet....he just has trust issues. He is on thyroid meds and is a healthy, mellow guy and VERY easy to have around. No cats. Fostered in Sacramento. Contact: Kim at

***ADOPTED 8/21***


Dewey lives with his new family in Saragoga. He's in obedience classes, and goes EVERYWHERE with his new mommy...he's loving it!

First litter from the Somerset puppy mill. These pups were born March 6 and have their tails.

Dewey is the shyer, more cuddly of the two pups. He has striking blue eyes and loves to play. He is always thinking about how he can outsmart Tank, who is more devil-may-care. Dewey will hide his favorite toys so he can go wrestle and then go back for them later. Tank is still available.

Chloe is a lovely 3-4 year old, 60 pound tricolor Australian Shepherd who was rescued from the Kern County shelter. She would be a great dog for an active family that can keep her physically and mentally active. Chloe is very bright and learns easily, and will excel as she continues with obedience training. She is house trained and uses a doggie door. Chloe gets along fine with other dogs and with dog-savvy cats that won't run away from her. She does fine with kids over the age of 8-10. Give us a call if you would like to meet her.

Bonnie NCAR #309

Bonnie lives with Kim and Tim on a small ranch in Wilton. She gets to swim in the pond and chase the sprinkler with her new brother, Bailey. She's in heaven!

The perfect blue merle Aussie girl landed in the Kern County Shelter in Bakersfield. She's easy-going, sweet, Velcro, ignores cats, affectionate, housebroken and just a little overweight! Our vet estimates she's about 5 years old.

Here's an update from her foster dad: Bonnie is going to make someone a great pet! She hasn't barked once even with Bandit barking in her ear. She didn't bother the cats at all,she sniffed at them but left them alone. So you can say she gets along with cats. She behaved very well in the bath, and is now taking a nap in with my wife while she cooks. She does get up on the furniture in an attempt to get on your lap!

Bonnie weighs 60 lbs, has a natural bobbed tail and gorgeous amber eyes. Fostered in Sacramento. Contact Kim at

Winston NCAR #314

Winston lives with Rudy and Rosamarie in Sacramento. They had a small dog for 14 years and understand the needs of a "pocket dog"...Winston is very happy!

Winston is an 11 year old Poodle Shihzu mix whose owner died. He found himself in the Sac County shelter where he didn't do well. He's a loaner, would rather live as an only dog, but does fine at the dog park and in the yard with several dogs. He likes to rest and eat in his crate and doesn't like other dogs coming near his food. He's housebroken and fairly independent and we'd like to see him live out the rest of his life in a peaceful home without cats. He seems to love older women! Fostered in Sacramento. Contact: Kim at

***ADOPTED 8/13***

Nikki found Janet, her forever companion. Nikki lives in Crockett where she has a big yard, gets to sleep with her new mommy, and is just minutes away from Pt. Isabel. We are all happy!

Nicki is a 4 year old mini red tri. She's VERY devoted and lovey and used to being a 24/7 companion to a senior woman. She's energetic, likes the dog park and loves to sleep on her owner's bed. Three years ago, we adopted Nicki to a wonderful woman who recently passed away. Fostered in Sacramento. Contact Kim at

***ADOPTED 8/2***
Opal NCAR #299

Opal is Susan's constant buddy. Opal lives in Sacramento where she gets to go on hikes, to her favorite dog park as well as swim in her new pool!

Opal turned 2 years old in March. She's cautious and barks at strangers, but will eventually warm up. She's a good watch dog and barks when someone comes to the door or gate. She is easy to have around and has become Velcro in true Aussie fashion. She is playing with the pups, and loves to play tug of war with Red.

She loves to fetch and is very fast and agile! I bet she'd be great at agility or flyball. She beats the boys to the ball! She LOVES playing with the sprinkler, hose and splashing in her wading pool. Fostered in Sacramento. Contact Kim at
