Panda and Missy were both adopted from Sheltie Rescue of Central Indiana. One very special day, Panda’s mom agreed to dog sit for her friend, Missy’s mom. Missy was a very shy, laid back and sensitive sable Sheltie who really never met another dog she could feel comfortable with. Panda was a very loving, outgoing, silly tri-color Sheltie who loved to talk.

When Missy entered into Panda’s house, her gorgeous sable-and-white hair flowing and saw dark-haired and very handsome Panda, they both were smitten with each other. Missy found Panda’s silly, loud antics fun, and Panda was calmed by Missy’s quiet, shy sensitivity. They soon fell in love. Missy and Panda got to visit each other often and enjoy each other’s company.


A sweet story, Lisa. There is somebody for everybody! :)

    Awwww, the dark and handsome knight brought the beautiful princess out of her shell, LOL. Such a cute story and it just shows me once again that Shelties really know other Shelties, and gravitate to them.

    Lisa, what a great story! It is really hard to tell which would be a favorite, lucky for me I don’t have too, but Missy sure is a little beauty. I’m glad that Panda is helping her to be more comfortable, she’ll come around and end up being the best of the best. Lucky you.
