Time to celebrate!

Three of these Shelties are from Rescue, One is Joey (remember his story? aka Joey the Pirate), one is arrow and the other Snowy, all rescued.  We had a 4th of July party not just for us humans but for Shelties too!

Nice job getting them to pose Heidi!

Turning a negative into a positive…

Joey was found in a dumpster in Springfield, MO with a recently amputated front leg.  A good Samaritan heard him crying in his apartment building dumpster and rescued him.  He was taken to the Springfield shelter. The little guy was only 5 months old and just seconds away from being euthanized at the shelter because he wasn’t a “whole dog”.  Thank goodness one of the workers contacted Second Chance Sheltie Rescue and they were able to save him.

He was scared to death of everything and had a lot of fear issues, but rescue helped him work through them. He is now living in a great home in WI, has 5 Sheltie siblings and a herd of miniature sheep just for him!

Joey has now even inspired his forever parents to volunteer with Sheltie Rescue in their state!

Thank you for sharing this heartwarming story & fun costume with Sheltie Nation Janice (& Joey’s parents!)

Don’t just sit there!

Joey (the Bernese Mountain Dog) & Morgan look like they are thinking Bonnie is “the crazy little Sheltie”They just don’t understand, Perri!  ;)
