Leading the Sheltied Life!
Featured Dog Available Now:
CLAUDIA (formerly Cherokee) - She is 9 years old (DOB 4-15-06). She's had three litters with Vern. She is sweet and just the perfect size. Her eyes are weepy alot so I had that checked out at the vet and it looks like she’s just getting used to the change in seasons and the stains are old. She never itches or rubs them so it’s not allergies. She was just recently updated on her shots and HW tested.
This is VERN (formerly Apache). He didn’t know his name so we changed it to honor the folks who gave him a ride. Vern is 10 years old (DOB 11-14-04) and has sired three litters with Claudia (see other available dog.) He was recently neutered, HW tested and brought up to date on his shots. He is a friendly guy and an attention hog. He is a nice medium size, has a good recall, but likes to herd you as you go in and out the door as he’s barking at you.
This is LUNA. I’ve nick named her Lunatic. She is flippin adorable and fun and would make a great pet for anyone. She is a smooth collie about 1-1/2 years old. housebroken, great with kids and other animals. She is a TERRIBLE countersurfer. TERRIBLE. She would benefit greatly from some obedience classes, although she knows sit and will do anything for food. She loves other dogs so it would be sad if she went to a home where she was the only dog.
About Wisconsin Sheltie Rescue
Wisconsin Sheltie Rescue has two main purposes:
- Find new homes for displaced Shelties.
- Educate the public about the Shetland Sheepdog breed.
Since 1995, WSR has rescued over 1,600 dogs and has mentored other rescue organizations through their own startup phase.
Wisconsin Sheltie Rescue is an all-volunteer group that grows every year by the number of adopters dedicated to helping dogs lead the “sheltied” life. All WSR dogs are beloved family members, some are also agility and obedience champions.
Shelties come to rescue at all ages, from puppy to 15+ years. The breakdown in age of WSR shelties is:
- 0-3 yrs. 15%
- 4-9 yrs. 50%
- 10+ yrs. 35%
No matter the age or background, each dog has the potential to "lead the sheltied life." There is a perfect home out there for each dog, and WSR helps that home find their perfect dog. Perfection in home and dog has little to do with housekeeping and adherence to breed standard. Perfection has everything to do with the “match.” WSR constantly strives to create that perfect match between human and canine.
