Our rescue efforts are dedicated to Australian Shepherds and Border Collies. These herding dogs are adorable puppies and often misunderstood adults. These intelligent dogs are bred to problem solve. They require some sort of job or mental stimulation. Lack of breed knowledge lands several in shelters daily.

Various activity levels required for various temperaments. Our goal is to match up the right dog with the right home.

Our primary service area includes northern Nevada and the Sierra Foothills of California.

Real Dogs for Real People

If you are looking for a dog who won't bark, jump, dig, chew, shed hair, has perfect manners and is 100% housebroken, may we suggest the stuffed animal aisle at Toys r Us.

Our rescued dogs are not perfect. Some of the dogs you are seeing today were abandoned, abused, starved, shot, hit by cars, or simply neglected by the humans they had once trusted. A rescued dog can bring a lifetime of love and devotion, but can also require extra effort on your part. Some dogs will need a gentle hand with housebreaking, or learning that they no longer have to fight for their food. After being abandoned, some may have separation issues, and may need help to feel secure again.

Remember, these dogs have lost their homes and families. Their entire world has been turned upside down beyond their capacity to understand, and most will require some time to adjust.

Please have realistic expectations for them.

If you have the patience and compassion it may take to change the life of a rescued dog, you will be rewarded with a lifetime of love and gratitude unequalled by any other species.

But if you cannot make the commitment to work with this dog and to be a wise and compassionate guardian, we respectfully request that you do not adopt from us.
