You can’t see me.

This is Snickers, who I adopted from Second Chance Sheltie Rescue of St Louis, MO. I think she is hiding behind the hydrangea and believes I cannot see her. So sneaky, Barb. :)) Sheltie Nation - Largest Community of Sheltie Lovers on the Net!

Cherished

This is the anniversary of my adoption of Mr. Chance. Although it has been three years since his passing, I still miss him. But adopting him brought the most cherished years of my life. So much love in that face, Gloria.

That Goofy (Knowing) Grin

Skipper was adopted from Wisconsin Sheltie Rescue when he was 7 months old. A puppy mill rescue; he’s come a long way since then. He knows how good he’s got it.He has a bed in the kitchen, one in the dining room, 2 in the living room (one facing our way to watch us watch TV, and one facing the other way looking out the patio door.) And of course a special space in the bedroom. A rescue should be pampered! Happy Birthday to Jodi’s Mom! ;) Sheltie Nation - Largest Community of Sheltie Lov...

Heart (and fur) warming rescue story!

By Karen Porter Daisy came to me as an owner surrender. One of her humans was terminally ill and the other was going into an Alzheimer’s care home. The relatives were too busy to devote much time to her. When Daisy first arrived, she was scared and nervous but seemed to have a gentle soul. Her first days here were very tentative, but I was pleasantly surprised when she accepted my dogs and they accepted her. After a short period, I began looking at prospective adopters. One special couple, Anit...

5x the fun!

Rogue, Rascal and Rowdie (front row) Ritz and Riley (back row) Everyone gets along well and they all play together in various groupings. Rowdie and Rascal are brothers who were rescued together. Rogue was rescued after multiple surgeries inflicted by other dogs before we found him. We love our Sheltie children and we are always laughing from their antics. They are THE BEST! That’s a lot of Sheltie hair, Linda! :)) Sheltie Nation - Largest Community of Sheltie Lovers on the Net!

Feel Good Smile x2

Due to a technical error, poor Kipper missed his moment in the Sheltie Nation spotlight. :( We want to fix that with today’s re-post. :)   We adopted Kipper from Second Chance Sheltie Rescue of St. Louis in February 2011. Kipper is always ready for action, especially with his favorite football! Ready to play with a smile, Rosanne! :) Sheltie Nation - Largest Community of Sheltie Lovers on the Net!

Sunshine Salvation

 I received Fay through Spokane Sheltie Rescue. She was abused to the point of being so scared to go outside. I am working slowly with her with lots of love and a secure routine. Here is her picture and I have to say after having her almost 2 months things are improving! A lucky girl, Brenda!   Sheltie Nation - Largest Community of Sheltie Lovers on the Net!

Living the good life

Koji was rescued from a neglect case by Collie and Sheltie Rescue of SE Virginia and adopted in 2010. He’s been my spoiled baby ever since. (Not that anyone could tell!) He deserves all the attention. He’s a great ambassador for the breed. So gentle he’s always a favorite with kids and he’s my veterinarians favorite, never complaining or nipping. What a sweetie, Jennifer! Sheltie Nation - Largest Community of Sheltie Lovers on the Net!

Just hanging out with my friends.

Kipper was adopted from Second Chance Sheltie Rescue of St. Louis in February 2011 when he was just a little over one year old. Our friends and family love him so much that he is one spoiled little dog. He loves his “stuffless” stuffed animals, so he gets lots of them for his birthday and Christmas. I think he needs a another bed Marianne and Rosanne! :) Sheltie Nation - Largest Community of Sheltie Lovers on the Net!

Sheltie Persuasion…and a happy story!

Tyler and Gypsy trying to convince me to stop working and start playing. Is it working, Jean?  And here’s a little Love Story involving Sheltie Nation: Back in 2010, Sheltie Nation posted some photos of little Tyler, who was with Second Chance Sheltie Rescue. I fell immediately and hopelessly in love with him. I knew that Tyler was MY DOG, and the simple fact that Second Chance Sheltie Rescue doesn’t do adoptions across state lines (I’m in Chicago) wasn’t going to stop this from happening. Nee...

No more “dough” in the doughnut!

Proper Pampering

Emerson Rose (Emmy) and Ella Rose are sisters that we adopted one year apart through Central Illinois Sheltie Rescue. They are sisters through and through. One minute loving all over each other and the next minute wanting nothing to do with each other. After living in a puppy mill for 7 years they have acclimated quite well to the life they deserve.
