Shelby has been adopted by Joe & Ann in Loomis. Shelby joins little sable sheltie sister, Lilly in this home full of well loved and cared for rescue dogs and cats.

Obedience and agility are on the horizon for this pretty girl.

I just wanted to let you know that Phoebe has been a fabulous addition to our family. We couldn't have asked for a more wonderful dog, and our daughter just loves her new best friend. Thank you so much!
Erika, Jim, and Sarah

We are so grateful to them for their generous hearts!

The holidays came early for Christmas when her senior owner's nephew drove from Sebastopol to Palm Springs to get her when her owner died. Christmas got all her veterinary care up-to-date at the Washington Squre Veterinary Clinic in Sebastopol including a major dental, then into foster care for a couple of days before Helen in Foster City snapped up Christmas. It was a whirlwind trip through Rescue with wonderful results!

Gail and Marty were looking for a Sheltie companion when Fancy came along. It took a while for her to adjust to living inside rather than outside, but they persevered and she is now a beloved member of the family.
Bullwinkle (aka "Wink") had so many medical issues when he came into rescue that we weren't sure we could save him. Thanks to loving foster care from Karen, he was eventually stable, healthy, and adoptable. An absolute sweetheart and friend to all children, Wink was adopted by Annette. He continues to charm everyone he meets, a great ambassador for the breed.
