Little Love came here from a kill shelter on March 31, 2012.  She had over 100 ticks, severe anemia, and a very dubious future. The vet aged her at fifteen. As it’s been over a year, today we are celebrating her Sweet Sixteen! She takes meds and appropriate supplements for liver and kidneys…but is otherwise happy as a clam. Please join us in jubilation!

Hugs to you Eva for helping these senior dogs through the
Sheltie Rescue Alternative!

    Little Love, what a great name for you. You are definitely a little love. Happy, happy 16th birthday, little sweetheart. I am so happy for you and your loving mom. Two of my older Shelties I rescued also lived to be over 16! You sweeties are just the best little presents from God.

    This is what pet rescue is all about, especially with older pets. Helping to make whatever time they have left the best that you can brings so many rewards & that wonderful Sheltie smile says so much. The hurdles of a rescue can be difficult during the first days & weeks, but gradually a loving, happy dog starts to emerge & they end up doing what all dogs do best, they give back more than they receive. Definitely Sweet Sixteen!
