Roscoe Roscoe NCAR #1057
Roscoe is a small, 5 year old black tri whose owners couldn’t stop him from bolting out the front door. With a 4 year old child, seems the door was always being opened, and Roscoe seized the opportunity! They knew he wasn’t getting enough exercise or attention.

He is very sweet, learning to come when called and is used to living as an only dog. He is learning to play, but still shows some food and toy guarding with some of the other Aussies, but never with me. He chases butterflies and likes the car and hanging in the house.

Marley Marley NCAR #1060
Marley is a big, lovey black tri boy who vets estimate to be 4-5 years old. He belonged to a man who worked in a warehouse and was everyone’s “mascot” until the man was laid off and disappeared, leaving Marley at the warehouse. The man’s cell phone was disconnected. We’re putting his history together just with this story and his behavior.

Marley is very comfortable in the house, likes to fetch, likes all people and is a big boy at 65 pounds. He briefly stayed at someone’s home where he seemed quite fixated on her 2 cats and 2 birds. I’m thinking he has not lived with either! Fostered in Grass Valley.

Benny Benny NCAR #1052
Benny had three homes and three name changes before he came here. He is only 18 months old, and is a loving, energetic and bouncy Aussie/BC mix. He was kept outside in a dog run for most of the day, then allowed in at night. He wasn’t happy being alone for so long and found ways to escape and run around the neighborhood. He got passed around from neighbor to neighbor before we received a call for help.

He is going through obedience classes at the Sanctuary and doing VERY WELL! He'd do best with another playful, well trained dog or an only dog with someone who has lots of time for him and lots of patience. He needs a person to love him and he'll do great! Fostered in Grass Valley.

Beau NCAR #1042
Beau is approximately 10 years old and is blind. He’s a handsome blue merle who was found in San Jose. No one was looking for him.

He is Velcro, loves everyone he meets and will ask for belly rubs! He stays close, is easy on a leash and would do well with a well behaved, friendly dog who he will feel comfortable with if humans aren’t around. He’d do best with people who have a safe, comfortable yard and one story house. I am certain he was attacked by other dogs due to being intact and understandably, he can be defensive when meeting new dogs and is not a candidate for dog parks. He's fine in a yard alone or with another dog for stretches of time. He plays nicely with dogs that he knows and that don't threaten him.

He’s happiest being close to me and does very well navigating around the Sanctuary. Beau is a very loving boy. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Dodger NCAR# 1039
Dodger is a 53 pound, 4 year old Black Tri boy. Dodger was left long hours and began escaping and barking. Neighbors complained, and his owners couldn't afford day care or a dog walker. He does not like to be crated or in a kennel, but has adjusted to our large kennels at the Sanctuary. He's fine in the house as long as someone is home with him. He should not be left alone for long periods of time in the house unless he has access to a doggy door.

He's loving and smart and fine left with my other dogs outside at the Sanctuary….just wants to be near me….sound familiar? Dodger knows sit, stay, down, come, heel and leave it and graduated from obedience class. He'd do best in a home with no other dogs and no cats. Fostered in Grass Valley.
