10-4 Sheltie Rescue Complete, Over

 This is our new blue merle Sheltie, Bailey Blu! We got him from a rescue in Nyack, NY, where they rescued him from a puppy mill in Indiana.

We are in love with him already – he is very cuddly and loves giving kisses.

Hugs to you Lauren for giving him a loving home!

You go Girl!

Daisy, a rescue who weighed 64 pounds and was going to be euthanized in May, 2010, has come to her fur-ever home. She has lost half her body weight and now is a qualified service dog. She has an amazing story, and was featured on CNN in January in a story about obese pets for her weight loss.

Daisy’s story is an inspiration to all who want to rescue a dog. An example of a little girl who escaped death to go on to have a happy and productive second chance at life.
Daisy is also not shy of the camera and loves to pose for photos. She seems very proud to wear her new vest and takes her job seriously!

Hugs to you for giving her a GREAT life, Beth!

What a “Treasure”

Sick, senior or special needs Shelties require extra veterinary care.  Often, these dogs are the first to be euthanized at shelters.  Rescuing these dogs has become the focus of Sheltie Rescue Alternative, Inc.
Treasure is a “furever foster” at the rescue. He was pulled from a kill shelter just before last Thanksgiving at around age 15. Here he is, six months later, doing well and enjoying every day!

To inquire about adoptions, volunteering or to make a tax-deductible donation, you can visit their website.

Hugs for all you do for these special needs Shelties, Eva!
