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!
Some of the members and friends of Northern California Sheltie rescue got together for a Sheltie Romp on the 4th of July. These are just some of the 39 four-legged attendees… The little tri-color right in the middle is 14 year old Sunny – rescued from a ‘backyard breeder’ at the age of five.
Dottie is a special needs girl looking for that special forever home! Dottie is a very sweet, 6 yr old sable female that just came into Second Chance Sheltie Rescue. She is crate trained and has lovely manners. She gets along well with other dogs and is always looking for a hand to give her some ear scratches!
Dottie had a mammary tumor removed which was cancerous, but thankfully it was not an aggressive form of cancer and all was removed. She is a breast cancer survivor and wears her pink ribbon proudly! (She will need a chest x-ray every 6 months for 2 years.)
Sadly, Dottie had also been shot in the foot by some abusive boys. One toe is partly missing and another (a weight-bearing toe) was broken and never treated. That toe healed completely crooked and therefore offers no ability to help bear weight on that leg. This does cause her to limp some.
UPDATE 7/6/11: Dottie’s was seen here on Sheltie Nation by Suzie in FL. Her super sweet face could not be resisted & her adoption is now in progress! Woot!
NJ Sheltie Rescue is trying out a new kissing booth at the events we have coming up this year to raise money. Autumn and Sundae tried it out, but Autumn wasn’t that into giving him a kiss… Maybe he needs a breath mint???
There is a puppy in this pile of toys!
Cody is a rescued Sheltie from Sheltie Shack in KS. There are many more Shelties waiting for forever homes in the rescue, so check out their website!
Thanks to Janice!
We normally don’t peddle much merchandise here on Sheltie Nation, but in this case I’d like to ask you to consider purchasing one or two! (They are quite beautiful and I personally have the Sardonyx for my tree in honor of my heart dog Trevor.)
If you are giving it as a gift, it comes in a lovely pouch & gift boxed; all ready for wrapping!

Additional information about Incolay:
Incolay is a handcrafted product that is made right here in the USA. It is not mass produced by machinery in China.
All products are made by hand, from beginning to end by skilled artisans. This means that the Incolay 2-part stone formula is mixed by hand, poured by hand, de-molded by hand, finished by hand and antiqued by hand.
There is a lot of time and work that goes into each product, which accounts for the cost and collectibility factor.
To learn more, here are a few pictures from some of the artisians at the Incolay factory.
