Rescued Shelties

Everyone gets along well and they all play together in various groupings. Rowdie and Rascal are brothers who were rescued together. Rogue was rescued after multiple surgeries inflicted by other dogs before we found him. We love our Sheltie children and we are always laughing from their antics. They are THE BEST!

That’s a lot of Sheltie hair, Linda! :))

Due to a technical error, poor Kipper missed his moment in the Sheltie Nation spotlight. :(

We want to fix that with today’s re-post. :)


We adopted Kipper from Second Chance Sheltie Rescue of St. Louis in February 2011.

Kipper is always ready for action, especially with his favorite football!

Ready to play with a smile, Rosanne! :)

Harvey was adopted from Colorado Sheltie Rescue in 2007 and has become a true gentleman even becoming certified as a therapy dog. Jackson was adopted from a breeder in Washington state. He too is a therapy dog putting smile on the faces of nursing home residents.

Lovely boys, Kent!

 I received Fay through Spokane Sheltie Rescue. She was abused to the point of being so scared to go outside. I am working slowly with her with lots of love and a secure routine. Here is her picture and I have to say after having her almost 2 months things are improving!rescue sheltie posing
A lucky girl, Brenda!


Koji was rescued from a neglect case by Collie and Sheltie Rescue of SE Virginia and adopted in 2010. He’s been my spoiled baby ever since. (Not that anyone could tell!)

He deserves all the attention. He’s a great ambassador for the breed. So gentle he’s always a favorite with kids and he’s my veterinarians favorite, never complaining or nipping.

What a sweetie, Jennifer!

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.


Lady knows any place is a good place for a nap!

Hugs for adopting, Beth!
