Maine Sheltie Rescue has a Sheltie in foster care that has experienced sudden onset paralysis on May 6. (This means he has lost the use of his back legs.) Max is a 3 year old double merle that is deaf and sight impaired. He’s having all sorts of test done right now and the rescue is working hard on fund raising to cover his expenses.
Right now he needs extensive testing, physical therapy and maybe even a wheelchair, all of which will cost rescue between $1600 and $5000, depending on his needs. Max is not available for adoption at this time, since he needs a lot of physical therapy, and may need surgery. His foster mom says he’s an absolute sweetie.
Donations to help Max would be greatly appreciated.

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.
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.
I hear a collective “squeeee!” Kim :) Lucky you who got to adopt her!
