Let us introduce you to LINUS, a male Border Collie/Australian Shepard, approximately 4 years old, with a tri-color, smooth coat, weighing 48 lb. LINUS is a recovering Camp fire survivor and looking for that happy forever home. He is a bit shy and reserved with new people while learning what the world is like again. His foster pack mates have rejuvenated his play genes where he now romps with them in the backyard; plays tug with a rope and chase each other. Immense joy comes from chasing birds and squirrels, rolling in the grass, sniffing, pouncing in the dirt and kicking up dust, exploring bugs & big lizards. LINUS loves his belly rubs and affection. He has learned ‘stay’ has its rewards and ‘come’ comes with affection. Click/tap here to see and read more about Linsu!!

Call him Valentine, Valentino or just plain VAL; just don’t call him late for dinner! VAL loves his meals and loves his treats. This boy (14 years, 65 lbs.) definitely doesn't know his age, and acts just as spry and happy as the younger dogs. He is the sweetest boy ever - so well-behaved; he might play with the ball but mostly wants your love.  Click or tap here to watch a video of Val. VAL is a gentle giant. He likes to cuddle up on the couch but will move off when he’s had enough loving. VAL and his four foster siblings get along well and he shows no interest in the cat. He is house and crate trained, and has earned “free time” at night, sharing the living room with sister Sissy and brother Newt. He has shown no inclination to dig and only chews on bones and toys.
