Kipper was adopted from Second Chance Sheltie Rescue of St. Louis in February 2011 when he was just a little over one year old. Our friends and family love him so much that he is one spoiled little dog. He loves his “stuffless” stuffed animals, so he gets lots of them for his birthday and Christmas.

I think he needs a another bed Marianne and Rosanne! :)

Is it working, Jean?

 And here’s a little Love Story involving Sheltie Nation:

Back in 2010, Sheltie Nation posted some photos of little Tyler, who was with Second Chance Sheltie Rescue. I fell immediately and hopelessly in love with him. I knew that Tyler was MY DOG, and the simple fact that Second Chance Sheltie Rescue doesn’t do adoptions across state lines (I’m in Chicago) wasn’t going to stop this from happening.

Needless to say, we worked it out and here is my baby Tyler 8 years later, along with his ever-present buddy Gypsy.

Alex was rescued by Sheltie Shack from a shelter in Omaha NE, they said he was unsalvageable.

He came to us as a foster and stayed happily ever after and also is a therapy dog!

Such a handsome and dignified fellow, Sylvia!

Buddy Two Shoes was a little surprised at sign in designated dog area at I95 rest stop in Florida.

He would chase one if he saw it! Fortunately no snakes were observed.

Hugs for adopting, Joyce!
