Beethoven is a young, deaf double-merle Aussie. He's sweet and being well taken care of at the San Francisco SPCA. For more information, contact Helen at Address: 2500-16th Street, San Francisco, CA. Phone: 415-554-3000.


This handsome boy was a stray picked up by the Haven Humane Society in Redding. Louis is approximately 8-9 years old, and tested positive for Heartworm. The shelter raised enough money for his treatment and he's being fostered by a shelter volunteer! He's an exceptionally nice boy who LOVES kids! He lives with an 11 year old girl right now and when he sees kids he is so gentle. He is just a sweet sweet dog.

If you can adopt him before the holidays, that would help out the shelter because they are filling up and staff are taking dogs home. This is a great Aussie boy! You can arrange to meet this gentle soul by contacting Michelle or Sandy at the shelter. He is an easy going gentleman! Located in Redding.

Sadie NCAR #150
Sadie's mom of 9 years became ill and asked us if we would find a terrific home for her Sadie girl. Sadie's been in foster care since 10/22 and has adjusted beautifully, and has shown she is a loving, playful and sweet girl. Sadie gets along beautifully with the 1 year old male and 3 year old female Aussies in the house. She bonded quickly with her foster mom and also with her foster dad. She should bond easily with her forever owner. She never jumps up on people and never gets on the furniture (except for the bed, which only needs a little coaxing).

She loves toys, especially rope toys for tug of war, and playing ball. She has been getting along better with the cats in the house but still needs to be monitored around them. She crates easily and does well travelling in the crate. She has a lot of energy but can also be very happy lying at your feet. She came home from the groomer with a beautiful soft fluffy coat and a glowing report of how nice she was to everyone and how well she got along with all the different dogs there. Sadie is an exceptionally beautiful blue merle and in terrific shape. She's only about 45 pounds, spry and has a non-stop wiggle butt! Older children OK. Fostered in Concord. Contact: Kim at

Whiskey NCAR #156

Rusty and his Family
Whiskey is now named Rusty!

Whiskey was a stray that stayed in the Napa Animal Shelter almost 3 weeks hoping his owner would come for him. He's now neutered, up to date on his shots and ready for adoption. He's very people oriented, but really doesn't seem socialized with other dogs. Whiskey knows sit, shake, down, crates well, loves to ride in the truck and plays ball. Still working on "off". Definitely people oriented. Wants to be a velcro dog! This boy is young and will need an owner who is experienced in dog training. Thankfully, Whiskey has a really friendly disposition. His coat is really thick and he'll need someone who enjoys grooming him as much as he enjoys being groomed! He lies down and relaxes during his brushings! Fostered in Napa.

Max NCAR #152
Max is a nine year old blue merle boy with the swetest of temperaments. His favorite things to do are getting his tummy rubbed and eating dog cookies. As he weighs about 75 pounds, we're limiting the number of cookies! Max's owner was devastated to give up his dog, but was going through some severe personal troubles and just couldn't care for Max so he is being fostered in Brentwood where his foster mom has fallen in love with him. He gets along fine with other dogs and is good with kids. He's actually afraid of cats, so will leave them alone! Contact: Kim at

***ADOPTED 12/11/04***


Blue and Family
Blue is living on 2500 acres in the Sonoma Valley with 4 mini dachshunds.

Blue is a 9 month old Blue Merle Aussie - Border Collie mix. He is sweet natured, energetic and needs a job and/or more exercise than his mom of 5 months can give him. She rescued him from a neighbor's home where he was getting neglected on the verge of abused. Blue is a great boy who can calm down easily after play, and happily jumps in his crate to sleep at night. Blue loves to play fetch! We believe Blue will make a great agility or possibly herding dog, but most importantly, he's a nice, fun companion for active owners who want to spend their free time doing activities with him! If you're interested in meeting this nice boy, please submit an adoption application. Located in in Rocklin.

***ADOPTED 12/11/04***

Tristan is a fabulous and loving 7 month old rough coated Border Collie at the Sacramento SPCA. I have personally spent a lot of time evaluating him and wished I had foster space for the little guy. The Sacramento SPCA has taken very good care of him and he's ready to adopt - so RUSH down there. He was neutered 12/3 and is ready to go! He's sweet, knows sit and lie down and fetches beautifully. He is not mouthy and has been sheltered for more than a month due to a severe case of kennel cough he got when he was at the Sacramento County Animal Shelter. If you're active, and interested in doing obedience and possibly agility, this is your boy!

***Buddy is going to Oregon to another Rescue group!***
Larissa with ARPH and Aussie/Border Collie Rescue of Northern CA is looking for a great home for Quinton. Here's the story:

I pulled a very nice Border Collie/springer mix from Calaveras Animal Control in August that was pregnant. She had 5 puppies - all have been adopted except one. Quinton (aka Lil' Jedi) is showing incredible potential and I'm really holding out for a home that will give him a job to do (obedience/flyball/agility/etc). He is 8 weeks old and very well socialized. I took him to the ASCA Nationals last week and he was fantastic - he walks on a leash, sleeps through the night in his crate, rides beautifully in the car, is well on his way to being housebroken and is very attentive and focused. For example, after only 1 night, Quinton was running up the stairs at our hotel and would run ahead and pick out the door to our hotel room! Quinton's mom is a very agile girl with the head of a springer spaniel and the body and movement of a border collie.

If anyone qualified is looking for a nice mix pup that will put his incredible potential to good use, please have them contact me or 209-223-0981 for an application. Quinton has started his puppy vaccinations and will require a $70 neuter deposit that is completely refundable upon proof of neuter. Located in Jackson, CA.

Chance NCAR #154

Nickel and Chance
Nickel and Chance who are loving life in Pleasant Hill!

Chance is a 9 year old neutered male looking for a new home. This boy is a brainiac, he knows: Shake hands, lie down or kennel, come, stay, that's not yours, bang, dance, pal to pal, roll over, speak, say please, which is a very soft speak, nose down, that's not speak, that's not roll over! He even picks up socks and puts them in the laundry! He was raised with small children and cats, and is a nice, gentle Aussie who is typically cool to strangers, but warms up quickly. He's a big boy at 70 pounds and can jump a 5 foot fence, so we know he's in shape! Chance's owner is ill and could no longer care for him. He is being fostered in Pleasant Hill. Contact: Kim at

Sophie, STAAR #3970
Sophie, STAAR #3970 is a 14 month old, 50 pound, spayed, black tri female. She's current on shots and microchiped. This girl is just the sweetest thing, she loves everybody and everything. If you’re up for a deep belly laugh, then just watch this darling little girl play in water. She splashes with delight and loves to frolic in the water. She is a lively little girl who enjoys playing with toys, other dogs and cats. She has a strong prey drive and will chase cats and small animals, but the fun is in the chase and she is just as comfortable cuddling with the cat on the bed later. She is intelligent, inquisitive, and is very affectionate. She is still a bit timid, but her confidence is growing daily and she is learning how to be a well mannered dog and is eager to please. She thrives with attention and would do well in a home where she is mentally stimulated. She is fostered in Salinas, CA. To meet this beautiful girl contact STAAR rep. Sue Trapp at 831-659-4853 or

Cody NCAR ID #151
Cody lives in Davis with his new family with four children whom he adores! Cody is the fifth "child" and loving it!

Cody (formerly Fletcher) is a calm, beautiful 12 - 18 month old black tri who was picked up as a stray by the Stockton Animal Shelter. He passed the shelter's temperament testing with flying colors, and is even OK with cats. He's underweight at 38 pounds and will be neutered once he gains a few pounds. He's sweet, easy on a leash and seems to be experiencing a lot of things for the first time. We had to lift him into the crate in the car, but once he was in it, he folded his front paws and enjoyed the ride. He gives kisses and loves treats. He corrected easily when he looked up on the counter. This is a mild boy who will do with gentle training and lots of love. Fostered in Woodland. Contact: Kim at
