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.
Eddie NCAR #422
Eddie is an 8 or 9 month old black tri from the Fresno SPCA. Hes a handsome boy with a docked tail and curly coat. This boy is a GEM. He's housebroken, we're working on crate training, travels perfectly (in a crate and loose), walks well on a leash. Somebody worked with this dog and didn't bother to claim him. He is calm and well behaved, seems to be okay around cats and loves other dogs. Typical silly, Aussie pup w/ smarts. Fostered in Grass Valley. Contact: Kim at

Max NCAR# 412

Max and family
Max is a friendly, darling, 4-5 year old black tri. Hes got a sturdy build and is dropping a few pounds in foster care! He is devoted and loving. He has lived with a 1 year old and 6 year old, loves all people and is a submissive boy. He will chase a cat, but wont hurt it....probably best if he didn't live with one.

Max was abandoned. His family moved out of their home and left him in the back yard. They would come back every couple of days to pick up their mail and to leave him some food. Eventually, he dug out of his back yard and waited for them in the front yard. Neighbors saw him and took him in. Finally, they confronted the people as they were getting their mail, and Max and his vet records were given to them. We were called shortly thereafter. This is a terrific Aussie. Max is fostered in Sacramento. Contact: Kim at

Tucker NCAR#

Tucker and family
Tucker is a sweet, adolescent blue merle boy who was chasing livestock and picked up by Sacramento County Animal Control. No one came for him. He passed temperament testing with flying colors, but after sitting in the adoption kennels for 3 days, I just had to pull him!
Hes not a big boy...about 45 lbs. He's easy on a leash, doesnt have any formal training, and acclimated beautifully to living inside and out. I believe hed make a nice family dog. Fostered in Walnut Creek .

Bandy NCAR #410
Bandy will be 2 in February. Hes a happy, loving, and very playful blue merle who has had little formal training, but has lived with a family with small children and cats since he was a puppy. Hed do well in obedience class and living with an active familymaybe with 3 teenagers!

He was surrendered to us because his family couldn't give him the attention he deserved. This is a very nice, loving, playful, high energy Aussie boy who can also settle down by the sofa. His coat is growing in after his owners shaved him. Fostered in Grass Valley. Contact: Kim at

***ADOPTED 1/16***
Tonto NCAR # 401

Tonto, Gentle Ben and family

Tonto is a 2.5 year old red tri who is very, very nice and fairly strong. He was bought as a puppy from Golden Acres in Auburn, a breeder who refused to take him back when his owners asked for help. There was no fencing at his home, and Tonto kept going over into the neighbor's yard and harassing the dog in an outside kennel, so we took him into our program.

Tonto is very sweet and loving with all people and good with all the dogs at the Sanctuary, including the puppies. He's had some obedience training and is a good guardian. He treed two mountain lions when he was on a walk in the Sierras with his former owner. He's friendly to strangers in public, and friendly with strangers in his home. He's good with children. but because he can sometimes take a treat with a "hard mouth" I think children over 12 are best. He's fine in the house by himself. He has limited leash experience as he was raised in the Sierras. He has some prey drive towards cats, bikes and skateboards, so an urban environment would be a bit of a challenge, but with proper training and an experienced person, he'd be fine. His recall is slow, but consistent, so his new family needs to work on it with him. Fostered at Sanctuary in Grass Valley. Contact: Kim at

***ADOPTED 11/11***
Rigby will be two years old in December. He was adopted from the San martin county shelter and has proven to live in an urban environment. He nipped the mail carrier because the gate was left open and he managed to get into the front yard. His family wants to find him a rural home where there are few visitors and limited stimulation. He knows sit, stay, come, fetch, "show me your belly", down, "leave it", no, kisses, get down, get up, shake....AND he's a great swimmer. He absolutely loves other dogs...and would be a great, companion dog in a rural home with other playful dogs. He is fine with the 4 year old in his home, but will bark at all strangers to the home and all noises outside. He also wants to nip at skateboarders and bicyclists. This is a smart, fun boy who cannot handle urban life. Hed do well with an experienced dog handler who might want to try agility or flyball or just have an energetic dog-loving dog to romp with at the ocean. Rigby is in Santa Cruz.

Currently living at the Milo Sanctuary in Willits. Louie is an active, sweet boy. He's great with other active, fun-loving dogs. He does seem to want to chase cats, but will stop when told to leave it. He walks well on a leash and knows how to sit and stay. He likes to play in the water, so would probably enjoy a trip to the beach occasionally. He's housebroken and crate trained. He needs activity and craves affection. Louie was in a home for a couple years - then proved to be too much with the young children involved - though we can handle and rough him up and grab and play with him and he never shows any aggression what-so-ever! We think Louie would do best in a home with another dog that he could romp with. Louie would probably be a good agililty or possible Flyball candidate. He used to enjoy sleeping on the bed at night, but would be almost as happy sleeping on his own bed or in a crate. Now that he has been returned and is living at the Milo sancuary, he would love another chance at a proper home! Birthday: 1/2003 (est)

Mia's pup Cassidy (male)

Cassidy and family

These pups and their mother were confiscated by Yolo County and given to us in September. The pups were born around August 10 and they are definately small, like their mother, Mia. We think they are great agility candidates and will probably grow to be around 30 pounds.
Little Cassidy is a snuggler! Likes pets and being held and he pounds on Avi regularly, but Avi can shell it out too! He's confident and very loving and loves to be held by children and adults.

Cassidy is very sweet and has greeted visitors to the Sanctuary nicely! Fostered in Grass Valley.

***ADOPTED 1/19***
Abbeys family (4 of them) were killed in an auto accident almost 2 weeks ago. A rescue group in Marin agreed to take her in because the remaining relatives were going to take her to a shelter and have her put down. Abbeys 54 lbs. Friendly. Confused. Pretty. Spayed. Can you help Abbey? She's between 4 and 5 yrs. and would be an excellent companion for a man (her guardian was a male), although she likes women, too. Seems to be Cattle Dog/Aussie/Border Collie mix.

Zuko gets along well with other dogs and has lived in a household with children and cats. He is very enthusiastic and loves to jump up in order to give kisses.
