Joey was found in a dumpster in Springfield, MO with a recently amputated front leg. A good Samaritan heard him crying in his apartment building dumpster and rescued him. He was taken to the Springfield shelter. The little guy was only 5 months old and just seconds away from being euthanized at the shelter because he wasn’t a “whole dog”. Thank goodness one of the workers contacted Second Chance Sheltie Rescue and they were able to save him.
He was scared to death of everything and had a lot of fear issues, but rescue helped him work through them. He is now living in a great home in WI, has 5 Sheltie siblings and a herd of miniature sheep just for him!
Joey has now even inspired his forever parents to volunteer with Sheltie Rescue in their state!
Thank you for sharing this heartwarming story & fun costume with Sheltie Nation Janice (& Joey’s parents!)
