I am submitting my sweetie Emerson Rose aka “Emmy” whom we adopted from Central Illinois Sheltie Rescue in May 2015. She lived a less than desirable life in an Amish puppy mill and was heart worm positive when she came into rescue. With treatment and much love she is now negative and healthy as can be. She is a wonderful addition to our family!


Hugs for adopting such a cutie, Beth!

    Bless your heart, Emmy, I’m SO glad your story ends with, “And she lived happily ever after.” Those puppy mills are terrible places (my sheltie boy is a puppy mill rescue), especially the Amish ones. Love and patience do heal, though.

    Having adopted a Sheltie that was a puppy mill rescue I can say that they can & do make very wonderful pets. It takes an enormous amount of patience to help a puppy mill dog heal, both physically & emotionally. Some scars & fears will never completely be overcome, but there are ways to work around them. If you want to rescue a puppy mill dog, regardless of breed, remember that the patience & time it will take will ultimately be worth the effort. We adopted our little Sheltie 7 years ago at Christmas & now she is definitely not the terrified little dog she once was. She’s a joy to have. She amuses us, keeps us company & has given back every bit of love we’ve given her & then some. It’s definitely worth it.

    Cuteness overload indeed! Bless you for adopting!
    Nothing makes the heart feel and heal more than adopting a sheltie in need!

    I thought the Amish cared about their animals!
