"Hi I'm Coco! My best friend passed away this past May and two of her good friends Maddie and Jules took me in so I wouldn't have to go to the shelter. I was cooped up in a small apartment and never taken outside. I am oh so grateful they took me and in my time with them I have learned how to go potty outside, some basic commands with the help of a clicker, and how to be friendly towards humans.”


“Maddie and Jules have a female dog Athena that I don't get along with well and because of this I need to find some new friends who know more about my breed and no other female dogs. I get along with their male dog Harley and other dogs while we're out on walks or hanging out at the park. In my short stay with them I've also learned that I LOVE to run alongside skateboards, be outside just hanging out, and get cuddles from my humans. I am a very dependent canine and need someone who will be with me most of the day. I would love tons of space to run but am used to my small home and smaller yard. I am up to date on all my vaccinations and I'm spayed. I have medication to take if my tummy is upset but haven't had to take it in awhile which makes me and my humans happy! I am currently being fostered in Fresno County and my humans are willing to drive to take me to my new fur-ever home! please contact Jules at jules.1965@hotmail.com or by phone at (559)473-9678."

Meet Coco!

DOGS AVAILABLE DIRECTLY FROM THEIR OWNERS - Page 2   
Meet Indy (Page 1)



There are a variety of reasons for someone to relinquish their dog. Often it is because of a change in life circumstance beyond their control. We understand the difficult decision these owners face and appreciate the effort they are making to find a suitable home for their dog. One advantage of obtaining a dog directly from its owner is much, if not all, of the dog’s history may be known. Dogs are presented on this web page as a service and courtesy to their owners, but are not being made available for adoption through NCBCRA. We have not met these dogs and our understanding of them is limited to the information provided by their owner. No fee has been required of owners to place their dogs on this web page though some owners may have provided a voluntary donation. To enquire about a dog on this page, please contact the owner directly.    


Due to limited resources, we are unable to accept owner surrender dogs into rescue at this time. Click or tap on this link to review the exceptional information on re-homing your dog offered by the San Francisco based American Pit Bull Terrier rescue, Badrap.org. If you have a border collie in need of new home we would be happy to place their photos and a description on these web pages. Please email us at OwnerListings@norcalbcrescue.org for additional information. Please note, Owner posted dogs are required to be spayed or neutered.
