Need we say more….the smiles on the faces of his family, and sweet little Bear alike, speak volumes. This is definitely a match made in Heaven for the scruffy little sheltie covered in mats and burrs, roaming the streets looking for anyone to save him, to now having his own family, a warm bed, good food and treats, toys, and all the love he will ever want or need…forever. Bear is an extra special, very gentle, and extremely loving sheltie that is cherished by the angel family that found him, his foster mom, his wonderful dog sitters, and by the family that adopted him. We all love you Bear!
Chase was a young stray whose history was unknown. Misidentified as a purebred Sheltie, he came into our rescue program and decided he belonged with us. He quickly charmed everyone around him with his energy, playfulness, and affection. His hobbies include going for walks, doing zoomies in the yard, playing fetch, cavorting with canine companions, and snuggling with humans. He was in foster care for only 18 days before Laura and Steve adopted him. He’s now going to school and thriving as a model dog. Best of all, he continues to be the ultimate lap dog, as sweet and loving a dog as ever existed.
Pauly was rescued from the shelter by Jeff and Jackie, who agreed to foster for us and shortly thereafter decided to adopt him. He is sweet and lovable, choosing to sit next to his people whenever he can and sleeping next to his companion Sunny, a Golden Retriever, at night. He loves walks and he loves his new home, where he gets lots of love, attention, and exercise.
After several months of treatment for heartworm disease, Bear (formerly Beau), was officially adopted by his foster parents, Jack and Pat. This sweet teddy bear has a great life with Sheltie companions, Tony and Allie, and as much love as he can handle.
Rocky, brother to Tim and Bear, was fostered by Charlene and Bob, who ended up adopting him after his successful heartworm treatment. They had quickly fallen in love with his sweet nature and handsomeness. Rocky fits in beautifully with their family and exhibits the same good temperament and sweet affection as his siblings.
Tim, brother to Bear and Rocky, recovered from heartworm disease under the careful and loving guidance of Jack and Pat. He was welcomed enthusiastically into his new home with David and Kathy, who have guaranteed him a home filled with love, good health, and activity.
Woody came into rescue as a stray. After neutering, housebreaking, and training in basic manners, he found his permanent home with Steve. He gets a great deal of affection and attention in his new environment and he is relishing his new life.
Bailey was surrendered by his owner’s relatives when the owner was faced with a serious illness. This boy was raised in a loving home and was well cared for in every aspect. He went into a “foster-to-adopt” home with Cheri and Steve, who nurtured him through the adjustment period. It wasn’t long until they decided to adopt him, and Bailey is now enjoying life with his canine sister on his beautiful, rural property.
Daisy was surrendered by her owner after she moved into assisted living. She had been very well cared for and had many good manners, along with a very sweet disposition. She was adopted by Anita and Bob, who interestingly enough have another Sheltie in the home who turned out to be Daisy’s brother. This is a great match for all involved and a very strange coincidence for our rescue program.
Misty was raised from puppyhood by a couple who doted on her. Reluctantly, they moved into assisted living and had to give her up. We placed her in a “foster-to-adopt” home with Steve and Eileen. Three days later they told us they wanted to adopt her. Misty came to us up-to-date with all vaccinations, in excellent health, in good weight, with wonderful manners and a lovely disposition. What more could one ask?
Ace, a friendly, outgoing, playful guy, was adopted to a quiet home with Courtney and her Sheltie, Raleigh. After living with a family of six children, he had developed some anxious behaviors and needed to unwind from his herding responsibilities. He found a very loving home. He is now busy working on losing some of the extra weight he gained and loving his new companions.
Sweet Gidget Marie (the tri on the left) settled in her forever home at the end of April 2012. She lives with her big brother, Chester, and her sister Rosie, the cat, who weighs more than her! Gidget spends most of her day playing with Chester and sometimes with Rosie. Chester is so happy to have his little sister to run around the yard with and to play a good game of tug-a-war, and pretty soon she will be running around the agility course with him. We are so happy to have Gidget in our family!
Lucky boy, Raider, has been adopted by Diane who lives near the ocean with another rescue sheltie adopted from us named Conor. The boys love to play and go for walks.
Parker (renamed Shane)
Shane is doing very well; he has fit right into our family and we love him dearly.
