MAC - The shelter said he was very matted so they shaved him and he "looks like a little cow." I'm sure he feels much better. He is about 35 pounds and needs to be the only dog. I think he lived outside until now, because he doesn’t have normal dog manners as far as sit, off, and no digging in garbage. He is snarky to other dogs that try to drink from the water dish at the same time and he was recently neutered so the marking inside has stopped. The shelter put him at about 6 years old. He is very submissive and sweet to people, just wants to be the only dog.
MONTY is an 11 year old sheltie who was surrendered for being snipping at a toddler. He is also not tolerant of young dogs that are active near him. He'll try to take a swipe at them as they're spinning and he's quick! He's a beautiful dog and just a little arthritic. Loves people and loves to play with the ball. If there is anyone out there who would only like to have one sheltie (I know, that sounds crazy), Monty would like to be the only dog.
LASSIE is the cutest little thing, but she’s not as innocent as she looks. She can be a bully if she’s in a home with a dog who’s wimpy or doesn’t stand up to her. I feel bad that she needs a home as the only dog, because she really loves to play with other dogs. She went to a home with a very sweet senior boy dog and he didn’t like it AT ALL. She is about 15 pounds and needs a fenced-in yard for her activity level. I’m sure a round of obedience classes would do her some good too. She was transferred here from another sheltie rescue person who’s family is having some health problems. Lassie is 2-3 years old, housebroken and a lot of fun, but needs to be the only pet in the household. A sheltie-experienced home would be best equipped to handle her bossiness. Being wicked smart has it’s disadvantages.
As a rescue organization, our obligation is to the dogs in our care. It is in the best interest of the dogs who come here for us to maintain confidentiality of the people who call us for help rehoming their dogs.
As a result, you may notice some dogs posted on this site without their name. Unfortunately, breeders who are not supportive of rescue have watched our website and if they knew the dog by name, instead of praising rescue for helping a dog that might have otherwise ended up at a shelter or euthanized, proceeded to contact the people who surrendered the dog and harass them.
We are not interested in getting involved in (written or oral) contract disputes between breeders and the people to whom they sell puppies. It is certainly not part of our mission to enforce any contracts for them.
Our #1 obligation is the well-being of the dogs who come to us. In the best interest of the dogs in our program, our loyalty is to the people who adopt dogs from our rescue, and the ones who call us to help with their dogs.
