Bea: Arizona Sheltie Rescue

Bea is an adorable double dilute Sheltie puppy who was born May 10, 2011. These Shelties are known by several different names: double merle, double dilute or homozygous merle.

Sadly, many of the resulting puppies from this type of breeding happen to be mostly blind and/or deaf.  Bea is no exception.  But thankfully she is a happy girl who is doing fine in her foster home and quickly learning the “lay of the land”.

She is social and tries to interact with the other dogs – although they aren’t quite sure what to do with this active little puppy!  She is quickly picking up house training and it won’t be too long before the foster parents introduce the dog door.  She appears healthy and is undergoing her vaccinations.  She will be microchipped and spayed prior to adoption.  Somebody with patience and a willingness to work with her is going to end up with a wonderful girl!

If you might be interested in giving this cutie pie the loving home she deserves, contact Arizona Sheltie Rescue, Inc.

  1. We have a 10-year old blue merle. She has been blind since birth. Smart as any sighted dog. She manages very well. When we travel with her she manages to find the couch in the hotel room, I hope Bea finds a lucky family to call her own.

  2. Sooooooo precious! I wish I was closer to him! I have a double mearle also and she is BEAUTIFUL and such a good girl! Hugs to Bea :)

  3. Sweet little pup, hope she finds a wonderful home!

  4. I just want to give Bea a big hug. What a heartbreaker. Somebody very special is going to have the time of their life with this sweetie pie.

  5. Bea is a sweetie pie and I just know that someone will do the right thing and adopt her. We have a Blue Merle that is a handful, but with lots of patience, love and training she has come a long way. Hugs to Bea.

  6. I PRAY THAT THIS PRECIOUS SHELTIE, BEA, FINDS A HOME THAT SHE SO RICHLY DESERVES. I HOPE WHOEVER TAKES HER WRITES TO SHELTIE NATION TO LET US ALL KNOW HOW SHE IS DOING WITH HER NEW OWNERS. BLESS YOU SWEETHEART !

  7. The thing that humans tend to forget is, for a dog, their sense of smell is even more important to them than sight or hearing. Dogs who have limited or no hearing and sight are amazingly adaptable and make great companions! Like any other sheltie, Bea is intelligent and eager to please. Someone will be very lucky to have her in their life.

  8. I hope Bea finds a nice home soon. We have a double merle sheltie also. Roxie took some extra effort in potty training, and socialization, and now we have a great dog! Bea will be a great addition to a loving family.

    Note her pink nose, we call Roxie’s her ‘pink piggie nose’ lol, it has grown on us, and darkened a bit too.
