Indy - adoption pending!!! by Mark Staggs

Indy - we got this older boy the day before the 4th of July (hence the name Indy for Independence day). He was picked up as a stray by a north Mississippi shelter and spent his 5 day shelter hold time with no one coming to get him. We were told he was even picked up near the shelter, but again, no owner came to claim him. He is microchipped, but the chip was never registered. We, as well as the shelter, were unable to get any information from the chip company to help us look for his previous owner.

Indy has had all of his vaccinations, tested heartworm and fecal negative, and had a dental cleaning. Bless his heart, his mouth was a total mess! When the vet first examined him last week, one of his pre-molars was just hanging and came out easily. During his dental cleaning, another 2 teeth just about fell out, and he had about 10 more extracted. His blood work was good, with just a slight elevation in his white blood count most likely due to his nasty teeth. He is a little less than 20 pounds, is at least 10 years old, and is crate and house trained. His coat is in rough shape, and we thought he might be low thyroid but he isn't. Hopefully with time, a good quality dog food, and routine grooming, he will look better soon! He is looking for a forever home that will give this 'oldie but goodie' some quality time and much love in his senior years.

Cricket - not yet available by Mark Staggs

Cricket - 2 year old small sable girl. She came into rescue in January but was too thin to be spayed. It took a while, but she finally gained enough weight to be spayed. She is still shy and is still working on getting housetrained. She does like to play with other dogs! We will post when she is ready to start looking for her forever home. Stay tuned!

Molly - adopted!!! by Kimber Fike

Molly is a 9 year old larger Sheltie. Sadly, her owner had a severe stroke and was unable to care for her; she had her from when she was a puppy. We just did bloodwork and a dental cleaning on her on Friday (2-15). We started her on Glucosamine, too. She was already spayed and UTD on vaccinations. She is super friendly, happy, and loves people! She likes to go on walks and play fetch with a tennis ball. She would do best as an only dog or with a submissive one. She is being fostered in Little Rock, AR. For more information, contact us at info@mysheltie.com.

Jingle Belle - adopted! by Kimber Fike

Meet miss Jingle Belle. You can tell from her name that she came into rescue right before Christmas! She is a cute little 12 pound female who came from a commercial breeding situation. She is a little shy which is to be expected but is doing well in adjusting to life in the real world. She needs time, love, and patience to help her bloom into a confident family pet. She is 1 1/2 years old and has a pretty bad under bite (but it's so cute!). She is crate trained and is doing extremely well on house training. She needs a home with a securely fenced yard AND a playful young dog to be her playmate and mentor (no exceptions on both requirements!). She is being fostered in the central Arkansas area north of Little Rock. Adopter must be willing to drive to meet her. For more information, contact us at info@mysheltie.com.

Halley - adopted!!! by Mark Staggs

Halley – 5 year old blue merle female that came into rescue when her owner died. She tested light heartworm positive, has been treated successfully, and is now ready for a new home. She LOVES playing with other dogs, so a home with another playful dog is a must. She is shy due to lack of socialization, so a quiet home with shy dog experience is what we are looking for. A fenced yard is a must! She is a pretty girl and gets along well with other dogs. Do you have a place in your heart for this sweet girl?
