Gus is a lovable, 10-year-old tricolor male who came to rescue from a private home. He is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, micro-chipped and had a dental. Gus knows a couple of tricks like sit, paw and down. He walks well on a leash and has been trying to herd his foster sister in the backyard.
Gus crates well although he has the run of the house whenever his foster mom is home. He loves to be petted and have his belly rubbed—when you stop, he paws your hand or leg to get you to keep petting. He would do well in a home with at least one other dog.
Whether he is posing in the backyard or relaxing in his crate, Gus is always ready for some hands on loving. :)

Now that spring is here, Can.CH Prairemist Imagine “Honey” is waiting for her usual ride in the Corvette!
A Sheltie is always the best co-pilot, Donna! :)
What, doesn’t everyone have a friend to help them stir their morning drink?
Cody is silly, Janice!
Like a Sheltie needs an energy boost. LOL!
The ocean is much less intimidating in daddy’s arms!
Colby is recovering now but it is a long recovery when this happens–3 months. He tore it chasing–surprise, surprise–a cat. What’s funny is he really doesn’t dislike cats and doesn’t know what to do when he catches them so stands there and wags his tail. No big walks for that many months also while the scar tissue develops. Just a caution to everyone who loves Shelties. As they get older (Colby is 11) that ACL weakens and it doesn’t take much to tear it. He has really taken advantage of all the extras of being a patient. More treats, LOTS and lots of hugs, kisses and attention.
Awe give him feel better cookies from us, Connie!
