Piper is a 2-4 year old mixed breed, possibly shepherd and Heeler. She is a loving, sweet girl who would love to find an active female adopter. She loves her walks, hiking and her beach time. She is very social with other dogs but would prefer to be an only child in the home. She can become possessive with her human. She currently resides with two kitty warlords and does great. She is very loving and is not a barker.
She recently completed an eight week training program with Unchained. See Livingunchained.org for her video. She knows lots of commands. She is potty trained, crate trained and loves riding in the car. She is UTD on vaccinations and flea meds. She weighs 40 lbs.
She is available through South County Animal Rescue and an application for adoption is scar.pet. She currently is in a foster home in pacific Grove.
Indie! She is about 2 or 3 years old, 34 pounds, and came to our rescue this spring after being hit by a car and left with permanent nerve damage to her front right shoulder, making her leg useless. We amputated the leg and Indie is zipping around like a new dog!
Indie is extremely affectionate with all of us staffers, she is a total cuddle bug and loves sitting on your feet after taking zoomie laps around the yard! She is learning to sit and walk on leash very politely, she didn’t know how to do anything when she first came to us except be afraid.
Indie has definitely had some trauma in the past to make her afraid of the world- other dogs, cars, bikes and some dogs approaching her are all barked at. Sometimes she has lunged at, but never bitten, a few people- 2 men and 1 woman, varying ages but both women have brown straight hair and did look pretty similar. We have not been able to find Indie a long term foster since she came into our program. We are primarily a senior dog rescue, so many of our fosters are older and retired and not able to handle a young more energetic dog, especially who needs some help with her leash reactivity.

Jasper and Cooper were living outdoors in a van, and we were luckily able to help bring them into our program. They are a bit shy with new people, and in situations so requires someone patient and willing to go slow with him to continue proper socialization. Jasper and Cooper are Queensland Heelers that is estimated to be a medium size dog who will require consistent training, mental stimulation, and serious physical exercise every day. They are looking for herding breed-experienced, active adopters who can enrich their lives with lots of interesting physical and mental activities every day. They will thrive in a home with a fenced backyard. They are not apartment dogs!
Stunning Zaida is a 4-month-old Border Collie mix that hasn't had the best start in life. She was found along the road, and a kind person stopped to help her. She is now in our care receiving all kinds of love and socialization. We are currently accepting applications for her to start the review process. She is a very loving, and treat-motivated pup that has been getting socialization with all types of people and other dogs. She will need a loving and patient adopter to continue this socialization. She loves toys, and is a super playful pup!
AGE: Approx. up to 1 year (Veterinarian’s assessment)
TEMPERAMENT: Sweet, Goofy, Very Playful (Tug-of-War in particular), Energetic, Stubborn
KNOWN COMMANDS: Sit, Where’s Your Toy (will look for nearby toy and pick it up), Wait (will wait to eat or go outside until we say "okay")
•Can be stubborn and will let you know of his disapproval by voicing his irritation with barks or vocal grunting.
•Gnaws to play, especially on arms. Does not “bite” though.
•Unknown temperament with other dogs or pets. When trying to introduce our own dog to him he was not aggressive but very reactive, pulling and barking toward the dog. We did get him to calm down with some treats and he eventually laid down next to the gate that was between him and our dog. As we haven’t seen him truly interactive with other dogs, I don’t feel we can give a definite answer.
•Unknown how he would react to other “non-dog” pets/animal but are more inclined to believe he would not do well due to his high energy and playfulness, though again we can’t give a definite answer. However, with proper training this can be remedied.
My husband is a City of Phoenix,Arizona police officer and on 3/29/23 while he was on duty parked at the Apache Wash Trailhead hiking parking lot, he was approached by a woman who said she had found a dog in the desert, miles from any nearby homes. She said she didn’t want to take the dog to the pound but knew she would not be able to keep him due to her living in a rental home and said she would try to find a home for him.
Being a dog lover and not wanting the dog to go to the pound, my husband told her that in the event she was unable to rehouse the dog, he would take the dog as a temporary solution until the owner was located. The following day she called and asked if we could take the dog as she had been unsuccessful in her attempt to find a home for him; we have been housing him since.
He does not have a chip ID so we opened a case for him with MCACC and PetFBI and his photo and information was posted on various “Lost Dog” Facebook groups. It has been a little over 5 weeks since the dog was found and there is no sign of an owner. Because of his good health and cleanness when found, along with the fact that the fur around his neck appeared as if a collar had just been removed at the time he was found, we suspect that he may have been dumped intentionally by his previous owner.
He needs a family who is active and has a nice yard for him to run and play. We assume he is good with children as he spent two days with the woman who found him and she has children from ages 9-12 who were very sad they couldn’t keep him. He will need someone willing to train him and outlast his stubbornness and have time for walks and playtime to release his energy.
We are unable to keep him long term because we have other pets in the home (dog, cat and bird) that we have had to gate off to different sections of the house. Though the cat and bird are fine to be by themselves, we have a dog that experiences high separation anxiety; we have become isolated from each other to separate areas in our own home at different times in order to be with the dog and our own pets.
We are in Arizona but willing to drive to a nearby state to give him a home.
Dexter is a neutered 3year old Queensland Heeler mix. He is fostered by myself and my partner , and he was saved from the euthanasia list at Stanislaus County Animal Services Agency. We fostered him to give him a few more weeks of life and we are so happy we did!
Dexter is a happy, loving boy. But with all queenslands, he does have a prey drive with small dogs and cats. He enjoys the company of dogs bigger than him. We haven’t tested him since getting him neutered, however, so this may have changed with hormones. He is great with all human adults and loves attention ! Has not been tested with kids, we don’t have any around currently.
I can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or a text can be sent to (209) 270-7452. Calls don’t always come through with my phone privacy settings.
Looking for a foster or forever home for Koa. Koa is a year old cattle dog mix. In his foster home, he is mostly confident, although he can still get spooked by sudden movements and loud noises. He is very high energy and loves to play constantly with other dogs. He can be too much for small dogs, but he does well with confident, developed younger dogs.
He's very insecure and afraid of the world. He is not aggressive, he just runs when he is scared. He’s fostered with many dogs whom he LOVES to play with. He would be so happy in a quiet home with an outdoor space to run. He needs a few weeks to fully warm up to a new person. He's a goofy guy! He is crate trained and good in the house.
Could you be that very special foster who has the experience, patience, and time for Koa? If so, please complete a foster application on our website (Beyond Rescue) at
My wife and I adopted Gretel from our local shelter about 2 months ago. She is 8 months old. According the veterinarian she is mostly a Entlebucher which is a Swiss cattle dog. She is not a purebred and I do see some type of terrier in her as well. She has been spayed and is up to date on all shots. Gretel is good with Adults and children. I have not had her around other dogs however the foster before we adopted had other dogs and said she was fine with them. She is currently about 30 pounds and smooth coated tricolor. Unfortunately my wife has essential tremors and balance issues so she is prone to falling so having such an active puppy puts her at a greater risk of falling. I will not take her back to the shelter since they are not a no kill shelter. Gretel would do well with a family who could give her the attention she needs. She is house broken and crate trained as well. She is also fairly good on a leash and knows a few commands. Located in Bakersfield.
Border collie mix 3 years old Good with other dogs, has lived with cats
Red came from the Spca, they couldn’t adopt her out due to her being very shy & not wanting to build a relationship with any people + very scared of any noises.
I took her in as a long-term training case, she’s made tons of progress and is a completely different dog. She can still be on the shy side but she’s very sweet and much more trusting of people these days, she loves other dogs. Has lots of toy drive and can play fetch, frisbee very well. Her energy levels outdoor are fairly high, but she can also hang out inside for a quiet evening, she is crate trained both in the house and the car. She has practiced socializing/ been exposed to many different environments, including the beach, lots of hiking trails. Busy places aren’t her favorite but as a training field trip, she can do great. She knows her basic obedience, leash walking.

We have had Trooper since he was 8 weeks old (DOB 11/7/21). He is GREAT with people, and loves his humans. You can usually find him sitting by your feet, or on your lap if allowed up. He knows sit, stay/wait, come, up, off, leave it, eat, and heel. He walks very well on a leash without pulling, and is potty trained and crate trained. He will go on walks and runs with you, and just wants to make his humans happy. Trooper loves chasing butterflies, eating ice cubes, and sleeping upside down.
Unfortunately, Trooper does not do well with other dogs which is our reason for rehoming him (we have another dog at home).
Abandoned in Dinuba CA. My parents moved out there in 2015 because it was always my dad’s dream to farm. What they didn’t realize was the amount of animals that would get abandoned out there. Since 2015 they have rescued 15 dogs. They make sure all the animals get spayed/neutered. They get fed and when they sick all animals get medical treatment immediately. My parents are out of kennels, space and their property is getting flooded. I’m taking care of these three, along with 3 dogs of my own.
The puppies are dewormed and have had their first set of vaccines. We want these dogs to go to a responsible owner who can spoil them and give them their best life.
Please call (559) 859-2476 in interested in these great dogs!
This sweet boy is a 9 years young Australian Cattle Dog/Kelpie from Sacramento.
He is an energetic and playful pup. He loves everyone he meets, gets along well with other dogs and enjoys playing with toys. He is housetrained and knows commands such as sit, down, off, get back, shake, and "go to your house" (crate). He is also very polite and understands "no thanks" or "no more" when he insists on bringing his toys to you to play. He is an indoor dog that loves to cuddle by your side. When he's outside in the yard, he likes to play fetch or rest while soaking up the sun! In the summertime, he enjoys playing in the wading pool or sprinklers. He is crate trained and prefers to sleep in his crate at night, whether his door is open or shut. If invited, he would love to snuggle with you for a snooze, while reading a book, or watching TV.
Breed: Australian Kelpie Age: 9 Years Gender: Male Size: Medium 40-45 lbs Can Live With: Dogs Spayed/Neutered: Yes Current on Vaccines: Yes Specialized Care: None Location: Sacramento, CA
River is a 5 year old Queensland Heeler. Likely a mix due to his size. He's 70 pounds. Has lived with a docile cat and has had the luxury of living in the mountains with his one owner and was by his side 24/7.
Has a very sweet personality, is crate trained, but otherwise needs obedience training if he is to be leash walked. We will work on getting him trained while waiting for an adoption.
River is diabetic, but controlled. Needs injections twice a day. Very good about the procedure. The previous owner's children are willing to pay for his medical needs and food for life as the owner recently passed away.
Loves car rides, but not socialized. We are working on that. Currently with our 12 year old Border Collie. Does well with him. Sweet disposition. Wants to please.
