Here at Sheltie Nation we get lots of submissions of photos of much loved Shelties.  We have decided that we would try to do our part to help needy Shelties find loving forever homes, because all Shelties deserve one.  We have created a new category called “Adopt a Sheltie” & from time to time will be featuring Shelties that are available for adoption from various rescue groups.

Central Maine Sheltie Rescue has tried and tried to get these two senior Shelties out of the shelter and into a foster home. Meet “Roscoe &Tri”. They are sweetie pies, and deserved to be in a loving home. The Shelter won’t release them to a rescue group, so they must be adopted directly. They’ve been in the shelter now for over 2 months.


Here is the description from the Shelter: These two very friendly and affectionate Shelties came to us after their owner could no longer care for them. Rosco and Tri love everyone -men, women, children, dogs, and cats! Due to their advanced age, we prefer they not go to a home with children under the age of five. They are house trained and will bark at the door when they need to go out. They know the command to sit. They are looking for that perfect family who will care for them in their golden years. The shelter will waive the adoption fee for the right family.

UPDATE:  According to the Coastal Humane Society website, Roscoe & Tri WERE ADOPTED SOMETIME IN EARLY AUGUST.  YEA!!!

    Gosh, if I could only get to Maine. Those guys might be perfect for my Dad… He’s on the lookout for an older already trained Sheltie or Samoyed.

    I absolutely love this idea for the new category! I keep meaning to email you the information for the LL Dog Rescue Group here in Kansas City that I adopted Duncan and Debbie from to add to the “Adopt a Sheltie” Rescue listing.

    I am from Eastern Maine and I will email the shelter. I guess I want to know why they won’t release them to a sheltie rescue. I would think they would be placed quickly there :0( I am thinking on who can help.
