Willie,Approx. 2 Years Old, Male, Aussie mix, 40 lbs

Take me home! My name is Willie and I love to smile (yes, I'm smiling at you in this picture)! I'm shy when I first meet new people. Once I am comfortable, I become a wiggling happy goofball! I get along with all my foster dog friends but unknown with cats and small children.

Jewell 6 year old Female About 45lbs Aussie mix, short hair


Jewell was at a local shelter where she was so shut down, staff members had to carry her when moving her. She was very sick with pyometra, scabies, skin infection and more. They took excellent care of her and we rescued her as soon as we had an open spot. Jewell has come a long way! She is now healthy, has a gorgeous coat and sweet adoring eyes. She is still very shy with new people but usually will take food. Jewell has learned to walk on a leash but still needs coaxing in new situations. Jewell has been great with her foster dog siblings and is very easy to live with. If you would like to give a shy dog a chance and think you want to adopt Jewell, please fill out an adoption application.Adopt Me

Chance is an 18 month old double merle neutered male, current on shots and microchipped.  He is a wonderful boy, housebroken, great with other dogs, a fairly 'velcro' Aussie, rides okay in a vehicle and okay on a leash. No idea on cats, sorry, just a silly, goofy, sweet boy.  He does seem to have normal vision but is deaf.  His family has decided to rehome him because they have a toddler and a new baby on the way, and Chance gets startled easily being deaf - he is no way aggressive, but toddlers just don't understand about it.  If you are interested in Chance, please fill out our adoption application:   (Bakersfield area)
