Keegan: Mid Arizona Sheltie Rescue

Keegan355x231Keegan has been in the Rescue program since last October.  He generates a lot of interest at adoption events because he’s a very handsome & sweet boy.  However people become apprehensive when they learn he’s deaf.  Maybe Sheltie Nation members can help him find his forever home?

Keegan is a 2 year old blue merle Sheltie that is a bit over sized (30 lbs.) but he is neutered, microchipped, doggy-door trained & up to date on shots.  He also walks well on a leash.

He was turned in by his owner for destructive behavior and they did not have the time to work with him.  Keegan was born deaf, but he is very outgoing and attentive.  He is currently learning hand signals and doing very well!  He is very people oriented & wants to be where ever his foster family is.  He does well with most dogs but, are unsure of cats at this point.

Keegan will probably do best in a home that has another canine to help alert him since he cannot hear and would do well with older children.  Due to Keegan’s deafness he might require a little more attention than the average dog, but the love you receive in return will be well worth it!

If you’d like more information on adopting Keegan please contact Arizona Sheltie Rescue. Out of state adoptions will be considered.

UPDATE 12/18/2010:  Keegan’s foster parents have now decided to adopt him!  :)

Best thing to see when you first wake up…

Springtime Sheltie

“Nicki is a Southland Sheltie Rescue who is now 16 years old and still a spunky little lady!  Here she is gardening with my Mom during one of their usual Sunday afternoons together.”

Such a sweet face Monica!

Poochini, perhaps????

Singing_sheltie_2Just before Christmas, Sheltie Nation member Jean, of Mission, B.C. Canada adopted a 12 year old deaf Sheltie, Belle, from a rescue organization.

She captured this picture quite by chance, with a simple point-and-shoot camera.  The combination of a beautiful sunrise, early morning frost on the straw, and Belle’s coloring combined to create the halo-effect around her.  Calling it “The Singing Sheltie” as she is quite convinced she was trying out for the opera – Poochini, perhaps????
