We rescued Rhett in December, 2014 from the Placer County Animal Shelter where he came in as a stray. He's a 48 pound red tri who is just lovely. He was adopted in January, 2015 by a couple from Morro Bay.

In April, we were asked to take him as both his owners died. He seems arthritic, and we will give him another dental, but otherwise he's in good shape and his blood panel is normal. He's a little stiff in his hind legs, so we're giving him anti-inflammatory meds. He's not a fan of my slippery hardwood floors, so we have some runners he likes!

Our guess is Rhett is 10-12 years old now. This boy is sweet and loves everyone he meets. He's fine with other dogs. I'm not sure about cats -- but I bet he's fine. He's a 48 pound red tri who is housebroken, easy going and likes hanging with his person. Fostered in Grass Valley.

ROO NCAR #1129
Roo (Ruger) just turned 5 on April 2. Roo is a lively, loving 55 pound blue merle who isn't getting enough attention at home where 4 young children are being home schooled. He LOVES the children, but usually ends up outside where he gets barky and neighbors have complained.

He is reactive with other dogs, needs to be introduced on leash or he can go off on them. He chases cats, but doesn't hurt them. He would do best in a home with someone who will run him an hour or two per day, take him to obedience classes and help him focus his energy. He will play fetch till your arm is tired, and loves people! Fostered in Grass Valley. .

We rescued Luna from a bad situation where she lived outside, was bred every heat cycle, and had no vet care. She came to us 9 weeks after giving birth to her last litter. Her ears are so infected, that her hearing is impaired. We're treating her for her ear infections, and have given her all her vaccines, but she can't be spayed till April when her milk dries up. She's 5 years old, 50 pounds, and friendly. Understandably, she's still uncertain of coming in and out of doors, but likes being in the house. She likes all the dogs here, and is getting used to a leash. She has a solid temperament, just needs some training.

BOO #1126
Boo is a 12 year old, 44 pound blue merle boy. His owner couldn't exercise him anymore, and hopes we can find Boo a home where he'll get to play with other dogs, and get daily exercise. He can be restless at night (sundowner syndrome) so exercise is key. He's loving and sweet.

***Adoption Pending***

Poppy is a deaf and almost blind 9 month old red merle Aussie. Her foster mom thinks she can see shadows. She was rescued from a shelter at 4 months of age and vet estimates her date of birth is July 14, 2018. She's about 42 pounds now, and is healthy and easy-going.

Her foster mom is teaching her through touch and a vibrating collar. Poppy is a quick learner! She comes when she feels the pleasant vibration, and she has learned SIT (taps on her head) and DOWN (taps on her shoulder blades) She lives nicely with other dogs, is trusting and very sweet. She met a 4 pound blind Yorkie nose to nose!

Poppy is fostered in Hollister. Application required.
