Courtesy Listings

With the Courtesy Listings, each dog will have a specific contact person listed for interested parties to contact for more information. Other rescues will have their own adoption requirements some of which may vary from ours. Courtesy Listings for private parties are merely a referral, we make no guarantees on them and are relying on the owner to provide accurate information, it is up to the interested parties to determine if it is the right match for them. We do not help them sell their dog, but we do require that the dog be altered before we will post it to our site so the owner may ask for reimbursement of that cost, if it was done to meet our requirements. Any placement/home requirements for these dogs are up to their owner.

"BLANCHE" is a 1 yr old red merle spayed female Aussie with a full tail.  She is housebroken, well behaved in the house, good with other dogs, cats and children.  Blanche has a very sweet disposition, she loves to work, and thrives around other dogs.  She is excellent at fetch, and loves going to the park and playing frisbee.  Blanche has been to herding facilities where she has been able to herd goats and other animals.  Blanche has also had abundant professional dog training, from puppy-hood onward.  From her owner's assistant:  "We are seeking placement for Blanche because although she is a wonderful dog, it is not fair for her to be in a confined space without access to roam and work around other animals. Her owner has a busy schedule, travels on a monthly basis, and is away and not able to provide Blanche with an environment suitable for her high levels of energy.  Blanche is a wonderful and smart dog, but she is not able to put her Australian Shepherd working/herding instincts to work in her current environment.”  (LA area)   (6-19)




"ZODI" is a two year old Border Collie mix and weighs 60 lbs. He is fun boy looking for someone to enjoy life with. He is very friendly with people and others dogs. Not recommended for a home with cats / small dogs (will chase) or young children (he can be excitable and rambunctious). Zodi needs a home with a secure dog safe yard. Another friendly dog would be a bonus. Zodi does not want to wait around all day for someone to come home. He needs someone who is home regularly and who will interact with him.

Panda - Adoption Pending

"PANDA"  is a 5yr old spayed and micro chipped female. She weighs about 45-50lbs. She loves little dogs and would be best suited in an all adult household. She is ok with cats. She does not have allergies or any other known health issues, is an indoor dog and uses the dog door.  She is a lower key girl but does enjoys walks and needs to go on them as she is packing a few extra pounds. She’s a typical Aussie, reserved at first meeting, may be a bit protective of her home, but very affectionate and loving once she knows you.  She is a sensitive girl, doesn’t take much to correct her, and needs a quieter household as she can be somewhat noise sensitive.  If you are interested in this sweetheart, please fill out our adoption application and we will forward it on to her caregiver:  *If we have your adopt app already, drop an email to: and we’ll forward your app on  (San Gabriel Valley area)  (6-19)



Rosemary - Adoption Pending

"ROSEMARY" is 3-4 year old spayed female Aussie mix, possibly with Spaniel, about
30 pounds.  Her current owner says she is great with kids of all ages, enjoys the company of people in general, very friendly and loving, just a very easy going, submissive, happy dog.  She LOVES other dogs, all sizes, has been around cats a few times and seems to leave them alone, but she does have a prey drive with birds.  She’s moderately active, enjoys a good hike but not a very long one. She loves to run and chase after a ball and loves a good game of tag (but she’s always it) and also enjoys snuggling up next to you on the couch.  She loves stuffed animals and toys.  She is well behaved in the house if you are home, but may get into things if left alone, unattended.  Her owner's life situation has changed and is unable to have her indoors like she used to, so would like to find her a loving home that can have her indoors more, as well as give her the time, attention, and exercise she needs.  If you are interested in this cutie, please fill out our adoption application and we will forward it to her owner to respond to you:   drop us an email if we already have yours on file and would like us to send it over to her:  (Fontana)  (6-19)




"BEAU"  is a neutered male Australian Cattle Dog Mix, he is 2.5 years old, fixed and current on shots (2/2/2018). Beau is a great dog, but has a very high energy level and some anxiety issues. He needs to be on a property with a lot of land and/or with an owner that is home more often. I walk and take Beau to the dog park as often as I can, but he still has a tremendous amount of energy. Beau does pretty well with other dogs although he can get nervous around large dogs. He has a companion dog with which he gets along well (my 4 year old Chihuahua mix Scooter). Beau has not shown aggression towards people except when I have taken him to the vet. However, he can be skittish around new people. He has received training and knows his basic commands. If you are interested in Beau, please contact owner Jaime at (Bakersfield area)  (10-18)


"EMMA" is a 2.5 year old spayed female, possible Aussie mix, about 50 pounds. She is housebroken, knows sit, stay, lay down, roll over, “bang!”(play dead) and she will howl with you. Her favorite things are fetch, swimming (pool and beach), chewing on toys/bones, sitting in the front window watching people walk by, and barking at the dogs that do also. She is good with other dogs (for the most part) when she is not on a leash or behind a fence/separated from other dogs, she’s only had issues with their other dog and dogs that snap/go after her first. She has a ton of energy but gets worn out quickly, after the beach or park or walk, she gets home and sleeps for hours. Unfortunately Emma has had food aggression problems since they got her as a puppy. They have worked with her and a trainer to try to correct the behaviors and she has not improved. Now she is getting aggressive with their other dog over food and toys. They have a 9 month old baby and are afraid of him (and their other dog) getting seriously injured. Emma’s aggression is usually apparent when there is food and/or treats in her possession. She has bitten the husband multiple times (drawn blood but not needed medical attention), the wife once, and she continues to get aggressive with their 20 lb pug mix (pins her to the ground by her neck and rustles her around, while growling). She has only broken skin on her one time, but more serious injury could happen. If you are able to give Emma a loving home with no other dogs or children, and are experienced with dealing with food aggression, please contact Jeannie @ 760-525-1576 or email: If you'd like to fill out our adoption application, we will forward it to her owners: (Costa Mesa)   (5-19)


"SIMBA" is, at best guess, an Aussie x Corgi mix, neutered male about 2-3 yrs old. He was rescued out of a shelter, and now ready for a new home. He loves car rides, doesn't like cats, and would really prefer to get all the attention, so may be best as an only pet. He is a friendly boy, very personable. He is crate trained, knows sit and to hand you his paw, very smart boy He is not ready for a dog park situation at this point, rather pushy with other male dogs but seems to do okay with easy-going females, just needs time to get to know them. If you are interested in this little cutie, please contact rescuer Alexis at 661-666-1770 (Valencia area)    (5-19)


"JEWEL" 8 years old, female, short hair Aussie mix.                                                                 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 eye. 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      (5-19)


"MoJo" is a 1 1/2 year old cattle dog mix with great energy and enthusiasm. He is learning his obedience and, with training, would make a great family dog.
