Northern California Rescue: Daisy

Daisy is a 2-year-old tri-color spayed female Sheltie. She spent a lot of her life so far living in a crate, but is blossoming now that she is in a foster home. Playing ball is her favorite thing; and her favorite ball is a soft, silly-looking stuffed tomato. She’ll chase it, catch it and throw it back at you for hours!

Please contact Northern California Sheltie Rescue to fill out an application for this sweet girl!

UPDATE 9/1/13: Daisy has now been adopted! :))

Tri-State Sheltie Rescue: Boopie

boopieBoopie is a senior male Sheltie who is somewhere between 10 and 12.  He a very sweet dog and is up-to-date on all his vaccinations, heart worm tested, microchipped and neutered.

Boopie is good with people and would do best as an only dog or maybe with one other, preferably a Sheltie or a dog of similar size and one that won’t be on top of him. Boopie does great with the Sheltie and a puppy in his foster home, but is not a big fan of the bigger dog in the home.  He should NOT be with small children as their sudden movements and noise make him very nervous. He would be OK with older children that understand they have go slow with him and not make quick movements or gestures.

Boopie is not a big barker, but when someone else is barking he will chime right in. He does not play with toys as of now, but enjoys chewing bones. He is very loving and likes to put his paws up on the couch or bed for a pat and will cuddle with you. Boopie is crate trained and a very happy boy whose tail never stops wagging. Sadly he had to be shaved due to severe matting, but his coat is growing in.  He is a real cutie!

Boopie needs a home to call his own for his senior years.  If you’d like to adopt Boopie, please contact Julie at Tri-State Sheltie Rescue Tri-State covers NY/NJ/CT.

Please share him with your family and friends!

NY/NJ/CT Sheltie Rescue: Bingo

bingoBingo is our adorable senior boy who is looking for a home of his own.  He is the cutest little thing, only weighing about 13lbs.  Bingo is currently being fostered in Manhattan and walks wonderfully on leash in NYC. He is about 12 yrs old (we’re not sure – he was from a shelter), and is ok health wise. He did test positive for LYME and was on meds, and he sometimes zones out a bit (maybe a little dementia), but hey, I do the same thing!

When walked, he is constantly stopped and people adore him. We had the same thing happen at the Ny Pet Expo – he was the hit of the show, but we need someone to make a commitment to this very sweet boy. He is really no trouble, is house trained, doesn’t bark too much and is really good with kids.

If you have a little extra room in your home and heart to give this old fella a place to live out his life, both we and Bingo would be grateful.  He doesn’t take  up too much space and only eats 1/4 cup of food twice a day. At this point in his life medical care would be basically supportive care because at his age if something were terribly wrong, it wouldn’t be fair to put him through any type of harsh treatment.  There is no adoption fee for our Bingo. We just want someone to love him forever.

NJ Sheltie Rescue: Marble

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERACould Marble be any cuter?

He is a Blue Merle who actually started life as a show dog. Unfortunately, after some early success, he became a neglected member of a hoarder’s home. He is now 6 years old and has lots of energy, but because of his neglect, Marble needs some house training and some help in focusing his energy. He may be best suited to an active home where he can get lots of exercise, focused attention and the patient training. Training will be particularly challenging for Marble because we believe that he is mostly deaf. In his foster home, Marble has gotten along with all the other dogs and has been friendly with all the people he has met. He is competitive at feeding time so this will need to be managed if he is placed in a home with other dogs.

Marble has been heartworm and Lyme tested and is up to date on all vaccinations. He will be neutered and microchipped before being adopted. A fenced yard is required for Marble. If you are interested, please email

Update: Marble has been adopted!
