Bella: Kansas Sheltie Rescue

Isn’t Bella beautiful?  Little 3 year old Bella is available for adoption at Sheltie Shack Rescue of Kansas.  She’s just a tiny, 15 lb. girl, but is ready to settle into a home environment and become a cherished family member!

She was rescued from a puppy mill where she lost one of her back feet. (She is missing her right rear foot just above the ankle.) Bella doesn’t even realize it’s gone and gets around splendidly. The rescue is hoping applicants look past her minor glitch and don’t hold the slight visual affect against her. It certainly doesn’t slow her down & we think she is a very pretty girl!

Bella is most comfortable with other dogs, so a home that already has another dog to hang out with would be ideal. She is still a bit shy with humans, but will let her foster mother pick her up with some encouragement.  She does still need work learning to walking on leash, but she is working on it.

Let us help Bella find the happy forever home she deserves! Contact Sheltie Shack Rescue via their website, or e-mail: sheltieshack@bluevalley.net

And VOILÀ, happy ending!

Juke came into Second Chance Sheltie Rescue a year ago from a hoarding situation and he was my foster dog.  Only ONE person was interested in him in the 8 months he was in rescue! I think people were put off by his eye, but you wouldn’t even know he has anything wrong with it.  (Juke has one brown and one blue eye. However, his blue eye can’t really be seen due to a birth defect and he’s partially blind in that eye.) He gets around just fine.  

He has the cutest, sweetest, friendliest personality and I couldn’t resist him. I finally had to adopt him in Oct. 2011. He’s now the perfect Sheltie ambassador for our rescue events and greets everyone with a kiss!
 
We can see why you couldn’t resist him Angela. Hugs to you for giving him a forever home!

I’m Thankful for You Lil’ Lady! [LICK]

Cathy drove 13 hours from Tucson to Salt Lake City to get little Bailey.

She is thriving and loving her new forever home… and her new boyfriend, Calvin! :)

Hugs to you Cathy for adopting a Sheltie!

MD Sheltie Rescue: Sable & Gracie

This cutie-pie named Sable is available through Northern Chesapeake Sheltie Rescue.

Sable is a happy, healthy 10 years young Sheltie.   His foster mom reports he is an absolute sweetheart and is as close as they’ve seen to a perfect Sheltie!  He loves to cuddle and gets along with other dogs.  He is okay with kids, very obedient and attentive and did I mention cute as a button?  He would prefer a fenced yard but does walk well on a leash.

Gracie is a smaller spayed female, also about 10 years old.  She is a playful, active girl.  She tries to play with other dogs but doesn’t quite know how; so she may do best as an only dog (or with a laid back dog that will tolerate her antics!)

She would make a great companion for someone who is home all day or not gone for long periods of time.  She is hard of hearing but manages very well!  A fenced yard required for Gracie.

Bea: Arizona Sheltie Rescue

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!
