Sammy NCAR #340

Sammy, Don & Dede
Sammy lives in Sacramento with Don, Dede and Ashley, their 11 year old. Sammy likes the cat in the household and is very happy sleeping in Ashley's room every night.

Sammy is a fabulous boy! He's the perfect family Aussie! He's a 6 year old, male, black bi whose military family was transferred and they couldn't take their Aussies with them. His sister was adopted by some friends, now it's his turn.

He truly is a gentle boy who enjoys running and playing out in the yard. He must lose 15-20 pounds...he's been over fed and under exercised. He is well mannered, doesn't pounce or jump on visitors and is very happy to lounge in the sun on the porch while the family is away. His previous family had two young children (2 & 4) who hung on his neck and tumbled on top of him. He gets along well with other dogs, cats and knows basic commands. He is does not nip or bite. He would be an excellent fit for a family with children looking for an adult dog. Sammy is neutered, housetrained and current on shots. Fostered in Sacramento. Contact: Kim at

***ADOPTED 11/28***
Rip is a 9 year old neutered male blue merle. He has escaped many times from his home in Napa and been picked up by one of our foster moms more times than she can remember. He opens gates, digs under fences and runs from home looking for people when left alone. He wants to be by someone's side all the time. He'd make a great city Aussie....or could live with someone who keeps him indoors for short spells while gone, or could take him to work! Rip is a very nice boy who is friendly towards dogs, too! Fostered in Napa. Contact: Kim at

Sparky is a 22 pound miniature Australian Shepherd. He's smart and loving and lives with teenagers who frighten him! His owner realizes that he'd be better off in a new home. He loves small children, other dogs and cats...but the teenagers are too wild for him!

Duke is a doll! He's your typical 2 year old energetic Aussie. A big Red Tri boy, could stand to lose a few pounds, but couldn't we all??? He's friendly, let us play with his feet and look in his mouth and has just beautiful eyes and coat. He'd be best with older children cause he might knock over the smaller ones! Duke is in Santa Rosa. Application required. Contact: Kim at

Jake is a lovely and sweet 2 year old red merle with two blue eyes. He is receptive to strangers petting him and is adjusting quickly to life in foster care in Concord. Contact: Kim at

***ADOPTED 11/8***
Kimo is an owner surrender. They could no longer keep him because they are moving. He is about 1 1/2 years old and is NOT neutered. You will have 30 days to get him neutered if you adopt him. He is good with children and female dogs. He has never had much exposure with male dogs so the owner doesn't know how it would go. He doesn't jump or dig. He has been an outside dog so he is not housebroken. He likes to ride in vehicles. He has not been successful with cats but he is a hearding dog. He is really timid in the shelter but warms up when he knows you will not hurt him. He should warm up when he gets out of the shelter. Please contact us if you would like to meet Kimo and possibly adopt him.

Angel, NCAR #

Angel, Rosalind and Sammy Bear
Angel lives with Rosalind in Alameda and "Sammy Bear", who was adopted from NCAR about 6 months ago. Angel's foster mom knows what she needs and this little family is very, very happy!

Angel and Patriot (adopted in June) are brother and sister Red Merle Aussies. Their father was a search and rescue dog after 9-11, so their former owner named them Angel and Patriot. They are dilute red merles... rare and gorgeous! They are 5 years old, raised with children, are well-mannered, housebroken and very sweet. Their owners divorced and neither could take dogs with them, so they asked us to foster them.

Patriot has found his forever home and now it's Angel's turn. Angel is very lovey, likes children, and is Velcro. She loves to run and swim at the river. She's a sweet, loving girl.

***ADOPTED 11/4***

Sunny turned 1 year old on September 16. He's a beautiful blue merle with a natural bob tail that he wiggles to great advantage! He is crate trained and loves everyone: cats, dogs, kids and adults. He's not the least bit mouthy. This is a wonderful dog who wants to be part of a family and get exercise and training and the attention he deserves. He's up to date on all his shots, in super condition and just an all around nice boy! Fostered in Fort Bragg. Contact: Kim at

Tank Playing

baby tank
Tank NCAR# 316 from Puppy Mill

dewey-left, tank-right
Tank has one brown and one blue & brown eye and is confident around other dogs and people he knows - and he's cuddly, too! He's happy and funny and has learned to use the doggie door and is housebroken. He loves to chase, wrestle and play. He's a natural at fetch. He is uncomfortable if strangers want to pet him or take him by the collar, so we're working on that. He is from the first litter of pups we rescued from the Somerset puppy mill. These pups were born March 6 and have their tails. Tank loves his people and has an average energy level. Fostered in Sacramento.

8/24/06 Foster Mom: Tank is a love sponge. He will be 6 months old on September 6th. He is so mellow for a puppy. Smart and willing, always at my side. Loves to cuddle and play, but is also content to be "with you" in his X-pen indoors. He's great about inviting other dogs to play with him. He has learned basic commands; sit, come, no. He is housetrained. Like any baby, he needs to be with you, get good supervision, and to have lots of new experiences so he grows up to be a adaptable, happy, comfortable companion. Dolly is his best friend since Dewey got adopted. He's a great young aussie who needs continued socialization with strangers.

Please submit an adoption application.
