They Say It’s Your Birthday!

Buddy says: “I turned thirteen on November 7th!”

I adopted Buddy after seeing him on Petfinder. He had been dumped in a kill shelter around Christmas Eve when he was ten. Since arriving, he’s brought a lot of excitement into all our lives! He’s the friskiest puppy here. He could play fetch all day, if I could. He had cancer 18 months ago but it was removed with good margins and he’s been fine ever since!

Sleepie Teefies!

Juke, adopted from Second Chance Sheltie Rescue in St. Louis.

I finally caught a picture of how silly his teefies look when sleeping!

He is happy even in his sleep, Angela!

Honors Graduate

I am so proud of my beautiful rescue Sheltie, Lucy. She just graduated from obedience school, and this is her “grad picture”! She is 6 1/2 years old, and has never been socialized, was only used for breeding. This class was a huge challenge for both of us. But, Lucy did great, and is slowly learning that people aren’t scary.

Mary Mounts, a photographer with NVSR, captured this picture of Joey enjoying himself at the Autumn backdrop.
How WONDERFUL, Mary K. and hugs to you for adopting him!

Think Inside the Box

Harley is one from the Buxton puppy mill rescue adopted via Maine Sheltie rescue. He was born a tripod and went blind this past winter due to white genetics. He is sitting in a food pantry box, (we are the co-directors of the pantry), as if to say: “I can help!”…:)
