This is tiny little Jasmine who we got from Michigan Sheltie Rescue. She is the sweetest little soul. She came to the rescue when a next door neighbor could no longer stand seeing her chained to a fence during the cold winters and hot summers here in MI for 5 years! She was used as as a backyard breeding dog. So very sad. When she was no longer producing puppies the owner finally agreed to let her go to the rescue as recommended by the neighbor. Now she is a special cherished member of our family… she is spoiled now and enjoying every moment! She deserves it!
Hugs to you Gloria for giving her a loving home!
Chance, you are a beautiful boy!
Hugs for adopting him, Gloria! :0)
To make a cushy bed for Kenny, of course!
This is our new blue merle Sheltie, Bailey Blu! We got him from a rescue in Nyack, NY, where they rescued him from a puppy mill in Indiana.
We are in love with him already – he is very cuddly and loves giving kisses.
Hugs to you Lauren for giving him a loving home!
Daisy, a rescue who weighed 64 pounds and was going to be euthanized in May, 2010, has come to her fur-ever home. She has lost half her body weight and now is a qualified service dog. She has an amazing story, and was featured on CNN in January in a story about obese pets for her weight loss.
Daisy’s story is an inspiration to all who want to rescue a dog. An example of a little girl who escaped death to go on to have a happy and productive second chance at life.
Daisy is also not shy of the camera and loves to pose for photos. She seems very proud to wear her new vest and takes her job seriously!
Hugs to you for giving her a GREAT life, Beth!
Sick, senior or special needs Shelties require extra veterinary care. Often, these dogs are the first to be euthanized at shelters. Rescuing these dogs has become the focus of Sheltie Rescue Alternative, Inc.
Treasure is a “furever foster” at the rescue. He was pulled from a kill shelter just before last Thanksgiving at around age 15. Here he is, six months later, doing well and enjoying every day!

Hugs for all you do for these special needs Shelties, Eva!
Maine Sheltie Rescue has a Sheltie in foster care that has experienced sudden onset paralysis on May 6. (This means he has lost the use of his back legs.) Max is a 3 year old double merle that is deaf and sight impaired. He’s having all sorts of test done right now and the rescue is working hard on fund raising to cover his expenses.
Right now he needs extensive testing, physical therapy and maybe even a wheelchair, all of which will cost rescue between $1600 and $5000, depending on his needs. Max is not available for adoption at this time, since he needs a lot of physical therapy, and may need surgery. His foster mom says he’s an absolute sweetie.
Donations to help Max would be greatly appreciated.

Isn’t Bella beautiful? Little 3 year old Bella is available for adoption at Sheltie Shack Rescue of Kansas. She’s just a tiny, 15 lb. girl, but is ready to settle into a home environment and become a cherished family member!
She was rescued from a puppy mill where she lost one of her back feet. (She is missing her right rear foot just above the ankle.) Bella doesn’t even realize it’s gone and gets around splendidly. The rescue is hoping applicants look past her minor glitch and don’t hold the slight visual affect against her. It certainly doesn’t slow her down & we think she is a very pretty girl!
Bella is most comfortable with other dogs, so a home that already has another dog to hang out with would be ideal. She is still a bit shy with humans, but will let her foster mother pick her up with some encouragement. She does still need work learning to walking on leash, but she is working on it.
Let us help Bella find the happy forever home she deserves! Contact Sheltie Shack Rescue via their website, or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
