Ellie just turned 8 years old on September 2. She is healthy, obedience and agility trained at our Sanctuary, and BTW, she’s a purebred German Shepherd! My friend got Ellie as a puppy and sadly, due to health reasons, can no longer walk her. Ellie grew up with dogs, children, and is crate trained and housebroken. Ellie sleeps on her bed in the house, is gentle and playful and in great health.

Ellie weighs 74 pounds and has a thick coat which our groomer takes care of every 6-7 weeks. I absolutely adore Ellie. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Bobby Jack NCAR #XXX
Bobby Jack is a former working Aussie at Wild Horse Sanctuary in Shingle Town, CA. He helped moved livestock in his younger years, and still heads me into the direction he wants! He’s 11 ½ years old, in good shape, kinda head strong, and is going deaf. He seems to roam around like a senior dog who isn’t sure what to do, but when I leash him he happily comes inside where he rarely lies down to relax. He’s about 50 pounds and should be about 55 pounds at most. Very sweet, can live with dogs, cats and chickens. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Koda is a 35 pound Miniature American Shepherd mix from the El Dorado County shelter. I traced his microchip and found out he’s 13 years old and was microchipped in 2004 at the Sacramento County shelter. He spent his life unaltered, and was only neutered 3 weeks ago. He’s rather independent, but once near someone, will lie on his back for belly rubs. This boy is not yet trust worthy off leash, and needs a person or family to keep him close and cozy, and make him feel special. His hearing is going. He’s on the mellow side and used to going wherever he pleases. Fostered in Grass Valley.

Bella Kunu Bella and Kunu NCAR #
These kids were surrendered to a shelter in northern CA because Bella air snapped at their one year old baby when she fell on her.

Bella is 9 years old, and Kunu is 8 years old. They are both toy Aussies and weight 11 pounds each. They’ve been with me more than a week now, and I think they would love to live together without other dogs or cats. They aren’t tolerant of cats, and they don’t seem to be interested in other dogs….just each other! Kunu is not tolerant of brushing or looking at his teeth - but I'm working on desensitizing him a little bit at a time.

They enjoy people and older children very much, but don’t want to be picked up a lot! Bella is more tolerant than Kunu, and I think they were coddled in their previous home. They are smart, lively and cute as buttons! Fostered in Grass Valley.

Cookie Cookie
Cookie is a 6 pound, 8 month old terrier mix who came into the San Jose Animal Shelter with a broken leg. She was listed as “rescue only” due to her injuries so a member of the public could not adopt her.

We were contacted by someone who offered to adopt her if we would pull her under our rescue group….so we did, and then that person chose not to adopt her so Cookie is with us. We had her spayed and got her the surgery she required to fix her leg. She’s a darling little feather of a girl and knows her name, knows stay and is crate trained. She is still recuperating and will be available for adoption by July 1. 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.
