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

NH Sheltie Rescue: Manny


Look at this sweetie! Can you be the home Manny is looking for? He needs a place he can run and go for lots of walks and someone who will love him for himself. He needs a person with patience in helping him get over mistrusting people.  He does well around other dogs but because of his mistrust in people, it is recommended he not be placed with small children. He is neutered, up to date on all his shots and is very healthy for a 9 year old. He is a happy boy who loves to give kisses!

If you’re interested in adopting Manny and learning more about him please contact his foster mom Joanne.

Update 3/8/13: Manny has been adopted! :)
