Hannah is a small Sheltie weighing in at about 15 pounds. She came from a commercial breeding facility and did not have adequate socialization when she was young. She is just now learning how to live inside and be a pet. She is doing well with crate and housetraining and gets along well with other dogs. We are looking for a home with shy Sheltie experience and one that has another socially normal dog to help miss Hannah learn what it is like to live in the 'real world.'
Meet miss (Princess) Leia! She was found in bad shape but we have lovingly nursed her back to health, and she is ready for her forever home! She is up-to-date on all her vaccinations, her blood work continues to come back normal, and she’s recently had a dental cleaning. She may be a senior Collie at approximately 10 years old, but she definitely has a sweet personality. She would do best in a home with few stairs due to arthritis. She is being fostered in the middle Tennessee area.
If interested in adopting this senior citizen Collie, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Meet Max. Max had been living outside for a long time (at least 8 years!) before we got him. It took 4 baths to get him somewhat clean! At some point in the past, he was hit by a car and not treated. We have shown his x-ray to several vets and the consensus is that it is stable and nothing should be done at this point in time. He does need a home with few to no stairs. He is adjusting very well to living in the house, having a soft bed, eating quality dog food, getting yummy treats, etc.! The vet estimates him to be 11 to 12 years old. He has been neutered and gotten his teeth cleaned. He weighs about 28 pounds. He is being fostered in northwest Arkansas.
Cooper is an approx. 7 to 8 year old sable male. He was in bad shape when we got him. He was treated for heartworms and Lyme disease. He is such an awesome dog! He is being fostered in Memphis, TN.
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 is a 6 month old sable merle female. She is a little shy and needs additional socialization. Her foster mom might adopt her. She is being fostered in Hot Springs, AR.
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 - 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.
