    How wonderful. God bless Laura and Walt. Hope the person/persons that had Oliver previously never own another dog ever again. Oliver, you’re beautiful….and look at that sheltie smile!

    See how beautifully they blossom with love and proper care. While all dogs deserve the best in life it always hurts my heart a little more when it happens to a Sheltie. Those of us who have Shelties know their sensitive nature and just how loyal they are to their families. Great job in rescuing this boy. You can see by his smile how well loved and well cared for he his now. Bless you all.

    God Bless you both and Oliver too. I can’t imagine what kind of monster did that to him. My heart goes out to all the abused pups and I hope they find loving homes like yours. Thanks goes to the Sheltie Rescue too.
    My Jack was also dumped and abused and was found by our local county Humane Society with fresh wound from a coyote trap by the dump. An ad was run for his owner for 10 days but no one claimed him. The first day I saw the ad, I called and asked to be notified immediately if owner picked him up. Jack has been our beautiful boy ever since and a constant companion to our little girl Beetle.
    Again thank and blessings to you and Oliver.

    WOW! Every time I see things like this, makes me want to have a farm just to rescue Shelties. Heart breaks, then you see the results of love. Kudos to you Laura and Walt. . .many years of Sheltie smiles and kisses!

    As a person who rescues shelties, my heart is always warmed by the unselfish dedication of those who take in cases others refuse. Laura and Walt you are miracle workers! Hats off to you. Your kindness and dedication are truly visible in this little soul. I recently took in a 12 year old. Not much to look at. However, his love, sweetness and kindness wins my heart. Bless you for the work you do!
