Baron NCAR #266
Baron lives in Hidden Valley Lake with his new family. He's finally gotten what he wanted his whole life...the love of a family. He goes to greet the two girls at the bus stop when they return from school and attends their tea parties!

This is a sweet 18 month old red merle with amber eyes and a sweet disposition. He was surrendered to the Tracy Animal Shelter by his owner cause "he just wants to be a lap dog." He lived outside and slept in the garage. He's doing great in foster care, uses the doggie door and gets along with all the foster dogs, including Nacho the Chihuaha!

This guy just wants pets and will crawl in your lap if you let him. He ignores cats and seems to be a one person Aussie. He kept his distance from a toddler and would probably do best in a quiet, adult home. He shows no signs of aggression, he just wants to be near his "person." Fostered in Sacramento. Contact: Kim at

***ADOPTED 1/28***

Holly, NCAR #262
Holly lives with Dexter, a Corgi mix and their familyin Los ALtos Hills. She gets her tennis ball thrown for her A LOT and will start obedience school soon.

Holly is a 15-18 month old purebred Border Collie. She's very playful, loves to chase the ball or a toy and is very cuddly. She gives kisses and can "turn it off" to snuggle. She's a pushy, loving little thing that wants her way, mostly when a toy is involved, or when she doesn't want to go into her crate ~ but she corrects easily and rolls on her back for tummy rubs!

She was too much dog for a family with a 1, 3 and 6 year old - but I think she could live with children 8 and over...especially if they threw the ball for her! I'm sure Holly could be a whiz at Flyball, Herding or Agility. We tried her with a pony and her instincts were good, she listened to commands...just needs to learn their meaning!

She needs a home where she'll get the training and stimulation that an active and smart Border Collie deserves! Contact: Kim at

Bailey, NCAR #244
Bailey lives with Patty in Foresthill. He has an Aussie sister, lab brother and has already begun obedience training. He and his siblings have a fenced acre to play in and get to go on adventures in the foothills.

Bailey is a delightful, energetic, and very large 10 month old black tri who turns one on Valentine's Day! . He was too much for an inexperienced older couple to handle so they contacted us. He loves people and other dogs and seems fine with older children. He's 50 pounds and will likely weigh 60-65 pounds when full grown. He's learning house manners, is housebroken and understands sit, down and come.

He pulls like an ox on a leash, so learning leash manners is first on his agenda! He is learning to fetch and eagerly plays with dogs at the dog park. Bailey needs daily running exercise and is ready for an obedience class..or two! Fostered in Sacramento. Contact Kim at

***ADOPTED 1/22***

Pretty energetic, but does calm down nicely. She's a clean girl in her kennel, and hangs out in the cat enclosure with 8 cats for a good portion of the day...they all get along famously! Jenna is in Sacramento. Contact Kim at
***ADOPTED 1/21 ***

Ray (now Cooper) is living in Berkeley with his sister Molly and his parents Belinda and Dylan. He has begun obedience class and gets daily romps at Pt. Isabel or nearby parks.

Ray is a 12-15 month old, soft and sweet black tri. He's over-the-top friendly towards ALL people and just a "happy to me" type of boy! He hasn't had any training, and hasn't learned come. This will change in his foster home! This is a darling boy who should continue obedience training in his forever home. What a doll! Fostered in Oakland. Kim at

***ADOPTED 1/19***
This is Conrad, a beautiful blue merle Australian Shepherd. He's pretty shy and it takes him awhile to get to know you. He likes to explore on his own and takes his time to warm up to people. Our photographer thought he was nervous in his surroundings, which is very common in a shelter environment. Once he warms up, he's a very sweet fellow. Conrad didn't display excessive energy and walked well on a leash. Are you the right home to allow this beautiful boy to blossom? If he sounds like the gentle companion you're looking for, please come to the San Martin Animal Shelter to meet Conrad.

***ADOPTED 1/16***
Dakota, NCAR #268
Nacho and Dakota live in Elk Grove with Alex (age 4) and his parents Peter and Kimball. They were looking for an Aussie to adopt and fell for sweet Dakota. They also found Nacho really entertaining, so when Alex fell for him, it was a done deal! The two foster bunkmates landed a fabulous home where they have fun together and get lots of attention from their new family.

Dakota is a one year old female Blue merle who was surrendered because her owner called her "uncontrollable" cause she dug out of the back yard. She also stated that Dakota was kept in the back yard 24/7.

This girl is Velcro - good off leash and on, and lived with two teenagers, and another dog. We don't know about cats yet. She's a darling 43 pound girl with average energy level for her age. Fostered in Sacramento Contact: Kim at

Daisy NCAR #260
Sydney, now named Daisy lives in San Francisco with her new family. She loves her brother Sydney...who had the name first! They are regulars at Ft. Funston and Delores Park.

Sydney (now Daisy) is a 2 year old black tri who has had a frustrating life. She has moved from home to home, always being an outside only dog starved for attention. She has not learned much, but corrects easily. She is extremely interested in playing with other dogs, has high energy and a completely sweet disposition. She's very determined and will bark and bark at a dog trying to make him/her play with her. She even got 9-year-old Tess to chase her!

She knows no enemies and will eagerly soak up all the love, attention, play and exercise given her. Sydney yearns to be in an active home where she can get the stimulation, guidance and training she craves. She's very affectionate and simply needs to learn basic boundaries. Fostered in Sacramento.

Reggie is a gorgeous 5-6 month old purebred Australian Shepherd with a red merle coat. He's housetrained, neutered, vaccinated and wormed. He has crystal blue eyes and a full cotton coat that curls at his 'wiggle butt'. He should be about 55 pounds when full grown. This sweet guys greets you with a big smile and a warm wet kiss.

Buddy NCAR #180

Buddy and his new family!
The look of love
Buddy giving a look of devotion
Buddy lives in Concord with Jeff and his family, including two small children. Buddy was gentle with his children and Jeff especially liked Buddy's calm, loving demeanor.

Buddy is a 7-9 year old Australian Cattle Dog (Red Queensland Heeler) with his cute, fluffy tail. He's about 45 pounds and a lean Sweetie! He is peaceful, gets along with other dogs and likes to go on walks, but doesn't have to go EVERY day! He was found in the streets, and the woman who found him would have kept him if he didn't chase her cats! This is an easy-going, undemanding boy who is happy hanging around inside or out. He smiles when his foster dad gives him ear rubs and even plays with his foster sisters!

Update from his foster parents: What a doll Buddy is! All he wants out of life is a little attention and to be allowed to curl up quietly at our feet. He is patient with Chili and he worships Tasha, snuffling in her ear and bringing her toys (Her Princessness, of course, is disdainful). When we go for walks at night he falls in right beside me and gives me no trouble. Buddy's a great companion for anyone looking for a calm, velcro dog!

This boy isjust a doll and deserving of a cat-free home of his own! Fostered in Woodland. Contact: Kim at
