Cooper by Mark Staggs

Cooper (ON MEDICAL HOLD) - approx. 7 to 8 year old sable male. He was in bad shape when we got him. He is being treated for heartworms and is being fostered in Memphis, TN.


Buddy by Mark Staggs

Adopted on 8-11-17!

Buddy - 2 year old sable male. He was turned into rescue after his owners bought him off a Craig’s List ad and discovered he was very shy (esp. of men). We are working with him to be more comfortable with people, places, and things. He is sweet but also will be a ‘work in progress’ for a while.

Cassie by Mark Staggs

Adoption Pending!

Cassie - 6 month old sable merle female. This is Cody's sister. Her foster mom might adopt her. We should know if a couple of weeks. She is being fostered in Hot Springs, AR.

Lexie by Mark Staggs

Adopted !!!

Lexie - approx. 7 year old sable merle female. She reportedly came from a hoarding situation, so she is also shy and needs a quiet home that is dedicated to helping her bloom into a more confident companion. She is being fostered in Olive Branch, MS (just south of Memphis).

Lukas by Mark Staggs


Lukas - handsome blue merle 3 year old male that was transferred to us by an all-breed rescue group. He originally came from a puppy mill, and they were not experienced in working with shy under socialized Shelties. Lukas has been in our rescue since March. While he has made good progress, he will still be a 'work in progress' for a while. He loves to play with other dogs! Understandably he is much more comfortable around other dogs than people, but it just takes time, patience, and love to work with the shy ones to help them bloom. He can only be placed with someone that is willing to work with him and has a quiet home (no young children, etc.) and a very securely fenced yard - at least 6' privacy. Lukas likes to run, jump and play, and he may be able to leap over anything smaller. He is being fostered in Franklin, TN.

Finn by Mark Staggs

Finn has been adopted! He's a beautiful color headed tri boy who is slightly oversized. Finn is 3 to 4 years old. He came from a hoarding situation and needs quiet home that will work on continuing his socialization. He doesn't know what toys are or treats, but he is learning. Finn wants to be loved and likes to be near people. He will follow you around just to be near you - although he won't come up to you directly to be petted. Finn is a sweet boy!


Logan by Mark Staggs


Meet Logan. He is one of 3 we got from the 50 Shelties Atlanta Humane Society. He is 6 to 7 years old, oversized at about 17.5 inches and thin at 28 pounds. Unfortunately he is heart worm positive. He has had blood work and chest x-rays and has started on Doxycycline. He will be in rescue for several months being treated for the heart worms. He is a little timid but very sweet! 


Macy by Mark Staggs

Update 12/26/2016: Macy has been adopted! Congrats Macy on your forever home!


Macy is a beautiful female merle. She is around 6-7 years old and very sweet. She was living outside without much human friendship. After she came into rescue, we quickly discovered something was very wrong. Macy was taken to the vet where they discovered she had a HUGE bladder stone (the size of a lime!) - surgery was done immediately to remove the stone, and she was stable enough to spay and have her teeth cleaned. Her vet bill climbed to over $850 with the surgeries, x-rays, bladder stone analysis, medications, etc. Macy is doing very well! Since she had previously lived outside all her life, she is being house trained and has rarely had accidents in the house. 

Macy loves being indoors and wants to be close by you when you are home. She is crate trained and working on leash training. We are beginning the process of looking for her forever home. The ideal home would be where she won't have to be home alone for 8-10 hours at a time since her bladder is still healing. 

Macy is currently being fostered in the Nashville, TN area. She gets along well with her foster sisters; in her prior foster home, she didn't like one of the female dogs but was fine with the males. She loves to sleep on the doggy beds and to be petted. 

Macy is slightly oversized and weighs around 30 pounds. She is fully vetted, on heart worm and flea/tick prevention and looking for a family who wants a loving, sweet girl.
