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! :)

Virginia Sheltie Rescue: Lily

Lily is looking for her forever home. She has diabetes and requires a little bit of extra tender loving care, but you wouldn’t know she has it.

Her real issue is a serious case of cuteness, just look at that face! She comes to us from Collie and Sheltie Rescue of SE Virginia.


 Hugs to you for fostering her, Brent and Jenny!
I hope the Sheltie Nation members can find her a home!

Granite State (NH) Sheltie Rescue: Rocky

Check out this sweet boy! Rocky is a 6 year old neutered tri-color Sheltie. He is a wonderful dog with a great temperament. He gets along with other dogs and cats, walks well on a leash, knows sit, down, high-five and give. He loves to sit next to his humans while the TV is on, loves to play with toys and of course, bark! He has not been around a lot of children, but when he has he tends to ignore them.

He was in a lot of pain due to a torn ACL in his right rear leg, but came through surgery just fine. Some arthritis had set in and some bone spurs had to be cleaned up and filed down as well. Proper care and physical therapy are key to a full recovery, which will take about 8 to 12 weeks. He’s being a real trooper and is on the mend. He will be available for adoption once he has recovered from surgery.Sheltie for adoption in New Hampshire

As you can imagine the cost of the surgery has taxed the rescue so any donations would be gratefully accepted.  If you can’t resist Rocky’s sweet face, you can learn more about him and fill out an application by visiting Rocky’s page.

UPDATE: Rocky has been adopted by a wonderful family in CT who saw him right here on Sheltie Nation!
