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.
SOPHIE is a 7-year-old (DOB 9/20/07) medium-sized girl who is a bit shy, but really sweet. She was surrendered by a woman who got her as a gift from her children who purchased Sophie at Petland, which surprised me because her pedigree showed some "CH's" in her background meaning that they showed her ancestors. Apparently a puppymill in Missouri got a hold of some show dogs to breed with their own. She is also related to my own Rocky. Sophie was surrendered due to moving to an apartment. When the woman said she had some 'quirks', it made me nervous so I asked her to explain. She said she's afraid of thunderstorms and fireworks and she'll steal bread off the counter. Lady, those aren't quirks!! That's called BEING A DOG :)
This boy is 8 years old and was surrendered because his household situation changed due to divorce and they had to make the difficult decision to place one of their two dogs. As a single mother with a special needs child, having this little peanut in a different home will hopefully relieve some of the stress in the house. He is just a tiny little thing and I haven’t heard him bark yet, but I’m not holding my breath! His coat was kept short in the summers so it has grown back sort of fuzzy and uneven. He has had good vet care, regular dentals and has been cared for. His kennel name is one that I’m very familiar with in our rescue as other dogs have come here in the last 18 years that he was closely related to. He does not require a fenced in yard, but should be kept on a leash at all times. He travels well and gets along with other animals. He lived with a teenager, but might prefer a quieter home.
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.
