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!
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.
Gotta love those Sheltie ‘quirks’!
Timmy loves to put both front feet in the bowl and find just the right ice cube to chew.
Think Timmy is cute? He is available for adoption from Wisconsin Sheltie Rescue!
This little cutie pie is Benji!
Currently 6 months old, 10.2 lbs and perhaps 11-1/2″ at the shoulder, he’s going to stay on the small side when mature. Apparently he’s quite the little character!
His foster mom reports that he loves to be snuggled and will stand on his hind feet with his paws on your leg asking to be picked up & held! OMG, every Sheltie lover’s dream dog!
He’s also SOOO fast, his tiny body becomes a blur as he races around the room when playing with his “housemates”. Pounces with delight on toys; which we all know is always just too cute for words. His foster mom is working on his house manners (and he has improved quite a bit since his first day in foster care less than a week ago!)
Benji is one of 3 puppies [age 5-6 months] recently rescued from the Lancaster mills by NJ Sheltie Rescue. If you can’t resist adopting one of these sweeties, please visit NJ Sheltie Rescue’s website and complete an application: www.njsheltierescue.org
Act fast, because with a face like that, you know he is going to be adopted quickly!!!!
8/14/2011 Benji is pending adoption, but two others are still looking for homes!
Dottie is a special needs girl looking for that special forever home! Dottie is a very sweet, 6 yr old sable female that just came into Second Chance Sheltie Rescue. She is crate trained and has lovely manners. She gets along well with other dogs and is always looking for a hand to give her some ear scratches!
Dottie had a mammary tumor removed which was cancerous, but thankfully it was not an aggressive form of cancer and all was removed. She is a breast cancer survivor and wears her pink ribbon proudly! (She will need a chest x-ray every 6 months for 2 years.)
Dottie also has arthritis in her elbow and hip and will need to be on a joint supplement and possibly some pain medication. Although she is still quite playful!
Sadly, Dottie had also been shot in the foot by some abusive boys. One toe is partly missing and another (a weight-bearing toe) was broken and never treated. That toe healed completely crooked and therefore offers no ability to help bear weight on that leg. This does cause her to limp some.
She would need a house with only one or two steps to the yard — preferably none. To learn more about her & to see a video of her playing, visit her page at Second Chance Sheltie Rescue.
UPDATE 7/6/11: Dottie’s was seen here on Sheltie Nation by Suzie in FL. Her super sweet face could not be resisted & her adoption is now in progress! Woot!
