Right now they are in her home all by themselves with people coming over a few times a day. They do not have any bad habits. Very Polite, they have never been around children (that might be difficult for them) they do not mind other dogs or cats. They would like to go together as they are seniors 12 and 13.

Maine Sheltie Rescue: Toby

By Holly Fent, Toby’s Foster Mom and President of Maine Sheltie Rescue

rescue-sheltie-toby-1I received an email from the Kennebunk Shelter, they always contact me when they get in a Sheltie, they know they can always count on us. They said that they got in a very sad case, and wanted to know if we would take on Toby. I said YES!

Toby, is a 8 year old Sheltie, and on March 6th he was taken to the local emergency veterinary clinic after his owner suffered a stroke and was hospitalized. 11 days later Toby was found, on death’s doorstep. Initially, the vets did not think Toby would pull through, unable to stand or walk, eat, and with kidney function levels dangerously high.

Much to the surprise of those caring for Toby, he improved a little each day. On March 7th, after 5 days of around the clock care, Toby was ready to be transferred to Maine Sheltie Rescue’s veterinarian. Evidence supports that Toby had been neglected far longer than 11 days. Toby is seriously obese at 70 pounds, his coat, nails, and ears in deplorable condition. Toby has a long road ahead – the arthritis in his legs requires he have physical therapy four (4) times a day in addition to helping him stand and walk. Toby has demonstrated a will to live, and Maine Sheltie Rescue is committed to getting Toby healthy and eventually finding him a home where he will never know neglect.rescue-sheltie-toby-2

On April 2nd, after 21 days at the Vet Hospital, Toby, now weighing 64.8 pounds, walking on his own, and is now in his foster home. It’s been an amazing transformation to watch. Toby has a sweet spirit, with a strong will to live.

Please consider helping Toby make a full recovery by donating to help with Toby’s medical care. Donations made directly to Maine Sheltie Rescue are tax deductible and donors will receive a receipt for tax purposes.

Mid-Florida Sheltie Rescue: Shep

shep-1Meet Shep. He would really like a home for Christmas.

It is a very sad day for his family as they have lost their jobs and their home. They realize the only fair thing to do is to allow him to go to a home that is able to care for him for the rest of his life. Let’s try to make that happen for him!

Shep is a very sweet sweet boy. He is a little over weight at 30 pounds, but he is not a big boy. He is easy going, respectful other dogs and does not mind cats. Shep is a little shy and reserved, but once he trusts he will be all yours and more, he just wants someone to love.
Please if you have room in your home and your heart let Mid-Floria Sheltie Rescue know ASAP. The rescue has so many Shelties in rescue right now that they regretfully are not able to take in another at this time.
However the rescue will assist by getting Shep fully vetted and shep-2only ask that the donation be made for the amount of the vet bill. The rescue will not ship him, but he can be picked up. If you do not have an application on file, please fill one out so they know how to get in touch with you.
If Shep isn’t the right dog for you, please check out Mid-Florida’s adoptable page. Adopting another could open up a spot for Shep in foster care.

NJ Sheltie Rescue: Jenny

Jenny is a spunky 10 year old who came to NJ Sheltie Rescue in August via the Lancaster Humane Society. At that time she was quite chubby jenny-rescue-sheltie2from improper diet and needed TLC to get her coat and teeth back in condition. She was given the proper update on shots, had a much needed dental cleaning.

As of November she has lost quite a bit of weight (12 pounds !!) is getting her girlish figure back and her coat is absolutely gorgeous. There’s nothing “old” about this girl. She loves playing fetch with her favorite ducky toy and enjoys walks around the neighborhood. A total love muffin, she greets everyone with a tail wag and smile. The only time she gets upset and barks on leash is when people “leave” — either by walking away after petting/fussing over her or when they drive away from their house.

jenny-rescue-sheltie1Jenny does have a jealous, alpha personality and must be an only pet in her new home.

Applications are available at www.njsheltierescue.org.  Applicants must be within a 75 mile radius of Mt. Laurel, NJ where Jenny is being fostered (zip code 08054).
