37 lbs, and 3-4 years old. Ginny is just great. easy girl. I leashed her up in the van she came in, she went to my mechanics with me before introducing her to the whole pack, but she met Abbie and Romeo first. Perfect dog. She is polite, sweet, looking to bond so I have to be careful!
This girl should be in a foster home for the five minutes she waits for a home.
Sweetest Cattle Dog! Chili! He's about 3 or 4. His owners dropped him off a one of the best shelters I know of; Victorville Animal Protectorate League. But still they dropped him off because they couldn't care for him. He looks great, not fat, not skinny. And he was cared for and loved. He such a sweet dog. Chili has been fine with my dogs, permitting all the sniffs from all directions! He went right to Becky and Paul who have a CCHDR dog and have fostered in the past. They gave Chili a much needed bath right away! WHOOO! He was fragrant! I asked how they did that so quick, Becky said "He just walked into my shower and sat down". Now that is cooperation!
Zane who was redlisted at SEACCA and made it out in the nick of time!
He's a doll! 2 yr old super cute, little male Heeler - neutered
Very very friendly, easy to handle good on leash. Owner dump, Victim of divorce, husband left Zane behind. Ex-wife said ZANE is her ex-husbands dog, and that Zane had lived for 2 yrs with cats and dogs, but she was now dumping him for being “dog aggressive” (because that is one of the only reasons SEAACA will take a surrendered dog. ) True story is the ex-wife is moving and not taking Zane with her.
He needs time to bond and decompress. And it might not take anytime at all with a Heeler savvy person.
Mr. Spots is an approximately 1-2 year old Australian Cattle Dog mix. Mr. Spots is full of fun and could play with toys all day long, especially the squeaky ones! He needs a fun-loving companion to give him a home to call his own! Mr. Spots is being fostered in the Sacramento area.
Dawn is a Heeler mix. Calm, easy going, spayed, has microchip, somebody loved her once, she is in good shape, but she is totally confused and worried now She looks like a great companion dog, long walks, chilling on the couch. Spayed female 6+ yrs old

She's back... it happens. It will be fine. She's got her niche out there. She's great with adults and kids, dogs and cats, rides beautifully in a car, fantastic house manners. So what's the problem? Things that move while she is on a leash, bikes, skateboards, other dogs, just on leash though. And she's afraid of horses. That's it! She has lots of options, including good old fashioned training!
June's original post: These babies were in the Tulare County Animal Shelter, which ordinarily might not be a bad thing, they would get proper care for their non contagious demodex. However the influx of hundreds of dogs are causing the shelter to agonize over euthanasia lists. Could you make those decisions? The subject of these two is no longer up for debate. They are here, their care will be continued and they'll get wonderful homes. I needed a couple boy and girl names, Johnny and June worked! Those names won't get them beat up in G-pop. I am picky about names, Short, hard sounds, easy to yell and pc. Photos: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.3211542292395161&type=3
Sophie is a gorgeous Cattle Dog / shepherd mix, about 1 yr old / 50 lbs, still a big puppy. She is a happy easygoing girl, but is a bit insecure when meeting new people and dogs, some she likes immediately and others she needs some direction and time to warm up. But she does respond to directions quickly once she’s bonded with you, especially on leash. She will make someone a wonderful companion, a great walking/running/hiking partner, she will just need some help with furthering her socialization skills. If you have the time, the energy, and cattledog experience, and are looking for a lifelong companion, here’s Sophie!
If you are interested in Sophie, please email: email@example.com for an adoption application.
BASIL This little cutie is Basil! 1.5 yrs / 40lb male Heeler mix, Basil is a shy little guy that has come out of his shell quite a bit, and is now looking for his forever person! Basil is crate-trained and house-trained, and has really improved walking on a leash. He is all Heeler personality-wise, he wants to be wherever his person is, and he is calm around other humans but doesn’t like a lot of chaos. Basil does fine around other dogs after proper introductions are done, but prefers calmer, confident dogs. Basil would do best in an adult only home, and is looking for a Heeler savvy person/couple that has the time and the lifestyle for active, smart, and inquisitive lifelong companion!
Sweetheart! This boy is 2 yrs old, but his teeth say one, so I'm calling him 18 months. He was in Corcoran Animal Control since September 7th. That's 5 months! No shelters are holding dogs that long unless they love the dog. Deemed a stray, he was kept at the shelter for 4 months and he was so good about it! He definitely deserves a home of his own. Great with people of all genders and sizes, great with dogs, I mean superfluous! Come take this wonderful guy home! He's neutered, vaccinated and chipped!
Cinch's health was not progressing and that was stressing me out!
I took him to a new vet who gave him a new test, Valley Fever?! It couldn't be... it is.
But it's not the end of Cinch's world by any means! Just some inexpensive antifungal meds, that he won't need forever.
He started on Fluconazole, no more antibiotics! Cinch is eating like he's making up for lost time (and he is!).
His weight is looking great!
We'll get a new x-ray in a few weeks and see how the antifungal is working and he is good to go, with full disclosure.
But Valley Fever is just a condition and he can live with that!
Cinch is adoptable!
Cinch is about 3 they say. He was found wandering in Kern county, very underweight, 26 lbs? He is 32 lbs. now.
Cinch is another sweet guy that has been overlooked because there are just not enough staff and volunteers to walk all the dogs and take photos. He is calm and is easily handled, walks fine on a leash. He has gorgeous coloring, and just needs a good scrub, he just needs a chance!
Gretel is about 2 years old, 52lbs, Tri-color /Blue Heeler. This gorgeous gal is used to house living, is house trained, crate-trained, and leash-trained. Gretel is friendly with humans, but would do best in an adult only home as her herding instincts are strong and she would not do well in a chaotic environment.
Gretel arrived at the shelter with another Heeler that she had lived with, so she can live with other dogs, but she does have some reactivity when initially meeting other dogs, but responds quick to leash correction, and after 5 - 10 mins of calmly walking near the dogs she is fine. So someone who already has a dog and who knows how to slowly and properly integrate a new dog into their household using a crate and a leash would do fine with her. Gretel is also highly alert to birds and little fluffies, so she’ll need a home without cats.
Gretel is perfect for a Heeler experienced person that is looking for a great indoor companion, and running/hiking/walking partner.
One year, 46 lbs, she’s a gorgeous tricolor Kelpie/Border Collie mix. Basically a puppy. She's a cutie for sure!
She had a couple names, one didn't work for the shelter, a duplicate, and the other, wouldn't work for me! Erica popped into my head.
Erica is sweet and very energetic! She's thrilled to be out of the shelter, in fact that might be a little bit of an understatement. She was an owner turn in I believe, at Victorville Animal Protectorate League. I'm sure they could have found her a home, but they had 20 dogs breathing down their necks... I don't know how we can handle all these dogs being kicked to the curb for NO good reason.
Marlo is a project. She is so, so shy. I would love for an adopter who wanted to work with her. But upfront. She's a different kind of dog.
Marlo is great with all other dogs, and she's accepting of walking on a leash with people she is introduced to. She would love to sleep on your couch, or your bed! But try to approach her in the yard and she runs to her safe spot, wherever that is, here it's her bed in my room, then you can put her harness on or leash. Or give her a pill or a manicure.
Routine oriented is an understatement. As long as she knows where she belongs, she sticks around. Routine is key for her, she thrives on it. She will make you laugh because of this! "No you have to do it this way! We ALWAYS do it this way!"
So basically I have been living with a dog on the spectrum( Aren't we all?). She absolutely has never shown any aggression, and that is her saving grace. She is adoptable to the right person. Marlo lives in my house, has access to the dog door and never has an accident. She jumps in and out of the car by herself. And she now takes treats, a huge sign, she's going to be fine.
She does everything your regular dog does. But she does it watchfully and cautiously. This is leaps and bounds better than a year ago, and the year before that. Marlo has been here 2 years now. And she needed it.
I have taken Marlo as far as I can. I have a dog rescue and, and 2 dogs of my own. She has all the privilege, but I can't give her the attention and affection a dog should have. She's ready for that, Marlo will bond with her adopter.
BELLA! 2 year old Border Collie mix, this little girl has the personality of a Border Collie, highly alert, ready for action, and super smart! She’s going to be a dog that needs a Border Collie savvy person, someone who loves a super smart dog and will keep Bella stimulated. Bella would be a great agility, frizbee, fly-ball dog! A single person or a couple in a low chaos home, no children, would be best. More to come as we get to know her.
I'm sure anyone who knows about Serrano, wonder where he went?!
He's here, always. He's happy, and so great with all my fosters, and he just loves puppies! So he comes in handy at soothing the littles.
I waited about 4 months to really go in and try to leash this boy up. I got a stiff slip lead to lasso him, well, just a ring toss really. Serrano can catch that leash with his teeth every time! He is not inviting me in! This guy really doesn't want to bite me, but he will if I invade his space. I'm still figuring out what to do here. I have had a dog for 2 1/2 years, longest stay for an adoptable dog.
Serrano is not adoptable as a pet. He's yard art. He would never walk up and nip anyone, he stays out of the way, although he doesn't walk around here stressed out in the least. But this place is not a sanctuary. They all have to be adoptable to be here. I am just thinking about looking for sanctuary for Serrano.
He is not viscous, he just had no use for humans except to feed him and pick up his shit if they so desire.
