Sheltie Nation

Mo: Central Indiana Rescue

This is Mo (Moses)- a sable sheltie available for adoption with Sheltie Rescue of Central Indiana.  He took a ride with me and my sister last weekend to pick up an owner surrender Sheltie.  While waiting for their arrival, we took in some shopping at The Christmas Tree Shop 

Auntie Robin found this mask to help keep Mo in disguise so as not to disrupt the entire store with his boyish good looks!  (He’s just 3!)  It didn’t work!  We couldn’t keep this canine Casanova under wraps for long.  Everyone who past him in the store had to pat on him and he returned the love with kisses to all his admirers!

Check out Mo’s page for more information & to fill out an adoption application!

Thanks for fostering this seriously cute guy, Jenny!

  1. MO , YOU ARE THE MOSTEST !!!!!! LOVE THE MASK THAT SHOWS OFF YOUR EYES, BUT IT HIDES YOUR WONDEFULLY EXPRESSIVE FACE. YOU ARE TOO SWEET ADN YOU DESERVE THE PERFECT HOME TO LIVE YOUR LIFE. I PRAY YOU GET IT VERY SOON. YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE SOMEONE VERY, VERY HAPPY…………..AND CASANOVA IS QUITE THE CORRECT TAG FOR YOU TOO !!!

  2. I love the pained eye peering out of that mask. So meek, yet still letting you know that you really, really, need to compensate with a cookie for that indignity.

    • I thought my Danny Boy was the only Casanova. I see he has some stiff competition. You will be on your forever home in no time Mo.

  3. Good thing he didn’t have a scan tag on him, someone may have tried to buy him in the store!

    • Jo, I have to tell you one of the store employees called her Mom and brother to come meet him! LOL! They REALLY did come! I haven’t seen an application for him yet, but he’s well on his way to finding a forever home I think!

  4. Oh what a sweet sweet boy! Kelly, thanks for featuring these adorable and deserving adoptables.

  5. What a doll!

  6. Some lucky person’s gonna get to have Mo around every day! A canine Casanova indeed!

  7. It’s a pleasure to foster this handsome fellow! He’s a wonderful, sweet boy!

    • What a beautiful boy! I had two Shelties over the years. Chelsea was with us for 15 years and just last October 5 I lost my beautiful boy, Caesar after 15 years. The vet said we were lucky to have had him “over his expiration date”, but we were the lucky ones. We found him walking with his previous owner one day and she was an older woman who had problems walking him. He loved to be out and they lived on the fourth floor. We offered to take him, and after a week or so she came and asked if we meant it. Well, Caesar was my baby boy for 15 years and i still miss him and cry for him. I so desperately want another Sheltie, but some people tell me not to do it because another Sheltie will never live up to my memories of him. I remember taking him shopping to Pet Smart and it taking forever because people kept stopping to talk to him and pet him and comment on how beautiful he was. I’m so sorry this is so long, but I had to comment on your beautiful Mo.

      • Denise,
        I just read your note and wanted to reply to it. I’m very sorry to hear about your loss and I truly understand how you are feeling. We lost our baby girl Sassy in May due to cancer. She was 11 years old. We also still cry every day. Sheltie’s have a special way to steal your heart and never let go.
        In July we were lucky to hold a new Sheltie puppy in our arms, Clearview’s Sadie, just like her big sister she never knew, she crawled into our hearts and took over the whole house. It’s not about living up old memories, but about making new ones.
        There are some things that both Pups have in common, which caused us to nickname Sadie “Sassy Junior” in certain situation. The difference now is, that before we had Sadie, we started crying about even funny memories and now we have the strength to laugh about it. But mostly Sadie has her own special way and she opened up a new huge space in our hearts. You can’t replace the fur baby you lost, but thank God our heart is able to grow and make spaces for other new family members to love.
        It’s your decision if your heart is ready to get another Sheltie or not. Yes, I admit, it wont be the same, because there was only one Ceasar in the world, but nevertheless another Sheltie baby will and can put its paw print into your heart, because that pup will also be unique to you
