Tri-State Sheltie Rescue (NY/NJ/CT): Sheba

shebarescueSheba came into rescue a couple of months ago, unable to really stand on her own and walk any distance. She was overweight with very bad hip dysplasia. Well, thanks to her foster parents, Sheba is doing wonderfully! She has lost 5 lbs. and had alternative therapies including laser, acupuncture and hydrotherapy. She can now getting up on her own and walking around all the time. She still needs help with stairs, but she has improved so much! We are so pleased with her achievements!

Sheba is a truly wonderful sweet dog. She is friendly with the other dogs she lives with and great with everyone she meets. She is just such a happy girl who holds no ill will for being neglected.

Sadly the rescue has not had one inquiry for adoption for this girl. Please share her. She is a beautiful color headed white sheltie who will definitely not disappoint her new family. She has so much love to give!

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!

MD Sheltie Rescue: Awesome Seniors!

The Northern Chesapeake Sheltie Rescue (located north of Baltimore, MD) has three older Shelties that are in need of good homes. Unfortunately the rescue reports they have a lot of wonderful dogs looking for homes and they are running out of foster parents. If you can’t adopt, consider donating or becoming a foster parent. Spread the word to your facebook friends and family!

Dwight: Dwight is a gorgeous, healthy 12 year old sable boy with personality plus! He has been fully vetted and groomed. Dwight loves everybody, gets along well with the other Shelties and is fine around cats and older children. He is housebroken, loves belly rubs, AND walks well on a leash.

Beauty: Beauty is appropriately named, inside and out. She is an adorable 10 year old tri-color gal. Beauty is happy, friendly and healthy, although a little chubby, but they’re working on it! She walks well on a leash, and gets along well with other dogs. Beauty is anxious to go to her new forever home.

Cinnamon: Cinnamon is a larger 50-lb male 8-year old trio-color Sheltie. He is very sweet and affectionate, loves belly rubs, being petted and attention! He walks well on a leash, gets along with other dogs, and loves to zip around in the yard. Cinnamon knows his name and comes when called.  He needs a fenced yard to run in and a family that is looking for a good, solid boy to be a companion. He’s ready for his new home!

Cindy Lou is a Sheltie mix with possibly Cocker Spaniel as the secondary breed. She is about 8 years old, is super sweet, gets along with everyone, loves playing with other dogs and is especially playful and gentle with puppies and small dogs. She is completely housebroken, crate trained and listens well. Please open your heart and home to this beautiful girl.

Ginger: VA Sheltie Rescue

Ginger is a sweet, gentle Sheltie who sadly has been lingering in foster care for some time. Let’s help her find her forever home!

Ginger came to NVSR very obese, and since then her foster mom has helped her shed a few pounds.  Her adopter must monitor her diet closely to help continue slimming her to a more girlish figure. :) 

Ginger is 15 inches tall, currently 32 pounds, and 12 years young.

Ginger especially likes to follow her foster mom around the house and sleep on a dog bed nearby. She would prefer to be an only dog but lives peacefully with three kitties in her foster home. In typical Sheltie fashion she loves an ear and rump scratch whenever offered! At night she likes to sleep on a comfy dog bed in the bedroom and in nice weather she likes to explore in the fenced dog yard.

Ginger loves her walks and is very good on a leash.  She also is great with children of all ages.  She is an all-around sweetie! If you might be interested in adopting Ginger, please read their adoption FAQ section and then send a note to: apply@NVSR.org.  Tell them Sheltie Nation sent you!
