ADOPTED – Woody is a handsome, tri-colored boy who loves adventure! (He tries not to brag about his good looks.) Right now his ears are only part-way up, but we bet he's going to have beautiful upright ears when he's done teething. Give Woody time to finish his puppy shots & he'll be ready to go on adventures with you like hiking or running through tunnels & over obstacles, just to see if you can catch up with him. He also likes to use his nose to guide him, so he might like to learn to use his nose to find things you want him to find. Smart as a whip, Woody would like to learn anything you'd like to teach him. And when all the adventure & play & learning new things are over, Woody likes cuddle time on the couch, & might even like to fall asleep next to you--well, after he's potty-trained, of course. Woody is treat & toy-motivated, but he's not picky. He eagerly plays with chew toys, soft toys, squeaky toys, bones, balls, & Frisbees. And as far as treats go, he's happy with a piece of his kibble. All his foster mom has to do is make a couple of "click" sounds, & he comes running for a piece of his kibble.

🐶 🐕 BOLT ADOPTED 8/13/2022 Male 7 months Bolt’s casual meet and greet turned into an unexpected adoption. His new family could not leave without him - check out more photos and see the rest of our dogs on our website -- https://norcalbcrescue.org/available-dogs/our-dogs/ 🐕 🐶 Meet 7-month-old Bolt, a gorgeous black & white rough-coated boy, whose coat is so soft to touch & beautiful to look at. The best thing is that Bolt is as beautiful on the inside as he is on the outside. He's happy, social with humans & dogs, & he even leaves the cats in his foster home alone. Bolt loves nothing more than following his foster dad around the property & surveying the scene. Sometimes he breaks into a little leap & romp just to make sure you know he's having a good time. He is active, curious, & adventurous, but not over-the-top.

ADOPTED – SAM is as affable a guy as The Sam Malone of Cheers fame. He wants everyone to be happy with him & thrives on positive reinforcement. It's easy to be happy with Sam because he truly is such a good boy. Sam likes to try new things & join in the fun with his littermates & the other dogs in his foster home. And did we mention cute? Sam has soft eyes & a beautiful black & white, easy-to-care-coat. He also has a "thumbprint" on the top of his head. Some dog lovers call this "the lucky thumbprint" & others call it "the mark of wisdom." We say whoever adopts him will be wise & lucky! Like his siblings, Sam loves to play with toys & with people & other dogs. He would do well in a home with another dog, but would be happy as an only dog, soaking up all the love & attention. He's easy-going that way. Sam is a bright, inquisitive boy, who will enjoy learning new things, & enjoying the treats & play-rewards that come along with all of that. If you're looking for a devoted, fun-loving friend to pal around with & to simply hang out afterwards, our Sam just might be the best puppy sidekick you could ask for.

ADOPTED – LILITH is the princess of the litter. She has a gorgeous, soft, white & black coat that is a true delight to touch, & it's a good thing. This little girl loves all kinds of attention, especially snuggling, cuddling, napping next to her foster mom or on her foster mom's lap. Lilith seems to know that she's pretty & that the world should be her oyster. That said, she is a benevolent princess & is happy to share attention with her siblings. She also shares her toys nicely. And beauty that she is, Lilith is not afraid to play & get her paws wet & dirty, as long as someone is standing by to clean her up when the fun is over. Lilith is both treat & toy-motivated, but she's especially attention-motivated. Lilith has shown the most interest of all the puppies in watching the sheep in her foster home. She is silly, loving, gives kisses, & is the best tugger of the group. She could live happily with another dog in the home, but might really prefer to have all of the attention for herself.

ADOPTED – CARLA is a girl with focus. She checks things out & then sets herself to the task at hand: pouncing on a toy, following her foster mom & pups around the yard in a game of puppy train, or finding something or someplace new to explore thoroughly & purposefully. Carla especially loves chew toys & treats, so both work well for training rewards, & as smart as she is, training should be a blast with this little girl. Carla is active & adventurous, & has a can do attitude. Yet she has a calm button, too. When we took her photographs for the website, she was hands-down the most poised puppy. She seemed to know what we wanted her to do & held her pose again & again. She has a beautiful black & white smooth coat, which will be easy to care for. Can you tell that this little girl has it all? She would thrive in a home where she would have lots of opportunities to train & learn. (Dog sports anyone?) She loves to show her person what she can do.

ADOPTED – What a little darling DIANE is! We can always find her in the pile of puppies because she has a beautiful black dot on her back. Diane loves to play & rough-house with her brothers & sisters. Her favorite game is to see who can run fastest in a game of chase, & Diane is often the winner of those races. She doesn't hold back. A game of tug with another puppy is also super fun, so we have to say that Diane is something of a tom-boy. That said, when it comes to interacting with the adult dogs in her foster home, she is nothing but sweet, giving lots of kisses to her aunts & uncles, as if to say: "Be nice to me. I'm just a baby!" So, she has a sweet, soft side, too. Diane is very play, food, & toy-motivated, so she will be a blast to train. While she loves to chase a ball & tug with her siblings, she's still learning to "tug" with people & to bring a ball back once she's chased it. Not to worry, Diane is super smart, & she learns quickly.

ADOPTED - Meet FRASER, an 8-week-old girlie with a beautiful tri-colored smooth coat. And we're all taking bets on what her ears are going to do (just today we see ears heading in an upward direction). Fraser is spunk & sweet rolled into one. At about 10 pounds, she can run with the big dogs & loves to. She isn't afraid of anything. She chases after the big dogs in her foster home until she is tired enough to do somersaults across the yard. She doesn't want to miss out on anything. And when she becomes a pest & they tell her to back off, she listens. One of her favorite things to do is to gather all the toys, even toys that are bigger than her, & take them into her "lair," creating a big pile. It's hilarious. She doesn't guard her toys; she simply collects them. Like all puppies her age, when she gets too tired, she has trouble winding down, so that is the time she needs to return to her pen or crate & take a puppa-nap. She is crate-trained, & is making great progress in potty-training.

ADOPTED - Say "hello" to PANCAKE, a 2-year-old former mama dog, whose beautiful puppies have all found their forever homes. Now it's Pancake's turn to find her forever home. Pancake's favorite part of being a mom to her pups was the stage in which she could play with them. It was as if she turned back into a puppy herself. And we've seen that playful enthusiasm in her interactions with the other adult dogs & puppies in her foster home. She is also very kind. When another dog or puppy in her foster home seems unsure or in need of support & comfort, Pancake is right there to help. When she was in the vet clinic for her spay, she checked in on the other dogs in the kennel, quietly "talking" with them & leaning toward them. The whole hospital staff loved her.

Meet our sweet FRANNY girl. She is a 32lb, 10m old BC mix with a soft, medium coat and cute fluffy ears. FRANNY's favorite thing is her person. She will follow her foster mom around the house, then settle at her feet. She is a typical young girl who is still puppy-ish and will sometimes chew things that she should not given the chance. A little puppy proofing or limiting where she can go in the house is all she needs.

COCO came to us a stray. The streets were not kind to COCO, she was sick, thin, and badly in need of dental care. But with Coco's strong determination to survive and a deep need to belong to someone, mixed with some excellent dentistry a bath, a persistent foster Mom and 4 pack mates, and the opportunity to slowly recover in an environment where she felt safe, secure, wanted, and lavished with lots of affection and kisses - COCO has blossomed into a beautiful bold happy little girl, running, and talking, playing and napping, chasing squirrels, watching the birds on the fence line, taking rides to and from, driving up and down the American River Parkway.

ADOPTED - AMY is a darling 13 pound, 14-week-old Border collie/McNab mix girlie, with the slick, easy-care McNab coat, & the smarts & keen attention common to both breeds. She is a delightful, enthusiastic, social girl. Amy thinks it's all fun & would like someone to share fun with her. She loves tug toys, chew toys, & balls, & she loves any & all treats. So, she will work & learn for toys & treats. She loves playing tug & chasing the other dogs in her foster home as fast as she can possibly run!

ADOPTED - LEMON is a darling 6-7 month old Border Collie mix weighing in at roughly 40lbs and gaining! She has a long-haired, rough gold coat with minimal white and perfect collie ears. LEMON knows her name and has a decent recall, especially when a treat follows. She is very food-motivated and also responds well to “no.” She is a bit of a chewer, so must be watched closely or crated while alone. LEMON does not prefer, nor particularly enjoy her crate, but goes into her crate well with a small nudge and subsequently sleeps without complaints. She is potty trained, but she does not signal when she needs to go out, so needs frequent offerings.

ADOPTED - MARLIN is 66 pounds of love bug. It’s pretty awesome when you get a dog big enough that you don’t have to bend over to pet him. He loves that he can be petted while walking alongside his person. MARLIN loves to run, play, walk, chase, be chased…any activity is a good activity when there is a person or another dog (dogs) around. The more the merrier, but humans are his favorite. The shelter put him at about 2 years, but he could be younger. His teeth are bright, bright, white, and his personality is much like a puppy. You will get a loving, gentle teddy bear of a boy if you take Marlin home with you. Not even the cats seem worried about him. He looks, he sniffs, but does not bother them.

ADOPTED - PENELOPE is a border collie cross weighing in at 30 pounds. She is under one-year-old and has been spayed. Penelope is a beautiful, well-balanced little girl with deep brown inquisitive eyes. Although she appears black and white in pictures, Penelope’s true color is dark chocolate brown with white accents and mahogany brown freckles on her nose. PENELOPE is fun, energetic, and very curious. She loves to explore the yard on her own, and mostly stays close by her humans when outside. Penelope is both agile and athletic. She will run and turn on a dime, then stop and look at you. If she hears no command, Penelope will continue to run and play on her own. On hot days, you will find Penelope lounging in the kiddy pool.

She is friendly & affectionate, nuzzling her foster mom & dad's hands, wrapping around them, & even sometimes jumping up simply to be closer. She wiggles with joy when she sees her foster parents, & sometimes gives little kisses on their fingers. This girlie is such a sweetheart! She is even good with people she first meets. And she is good at the groomer's shop & veterinarian's office.

ADOPTED – Meet GORDY! This sweet 6 ½ year old boy loves affection and welcomes kind words and cuddles. Weighing in at about 60 pounds, GORDY has a classic easy care black and white coat, a black round accent around his right eye, and a slight overbite, showing an adorable bit of pink tongue. Once he knows that you are friendly, he comes right up for pets and cuddles. GORDY does well on the leash and loads up into car and travels great. He shown that he knows basic commands. He just wants to please you. GORDY likes to know that he is in a safe environment and will do best in a quiet household without young children which he will run and hide from. Owners should understand gentle, positive behavior reinforcement and offer dedicated household areas (like a crate) where GORDY can relax. GORDY has demonstrated herding behavior and cats are definitely not on his friend list. However, GORDY gets along with his foster BCs just fine, and is quite kind to our young foster puppy, who routinely gives him kisses.

ADOPTED - Hi. My name is Ty. I am about 6-years-old, and I am a Border collie mix, weighing about 50 pounds. My coat is gorgeous, shiny, and medium-length. The first thing I hear people say when they meet is “What a lovely dog!” And they are right. Not only am I gorgeous, but very well- mannered and loving. I am a BUDDY dog, just bursting with cuteness, personality, and devotion. I go everywhere, and wherever I go, I am very well-behaved. No jumping, or barking, no yapping at dogs across the street, or lunging at the end of the leash, and no barking at the mailman or garbage people. I am well-balanced, calm, and centered, especially for a herding dog. I even behave well at the coffeehouse or tea shop.
