Could the supermarket be my sanctuary?

At 7:00am I get up…or more correctly, either the ex-mill Shelties Sienna and Jet[photopress:Jet_and_Sienna_w_caption_best__Medium_.jpg,thumb,pp_image] or the 5 1/2 month old puppies Dakota and Gypsy, [photopress:Dakota_hanging_on_gate__Medium_.jpg,thumb,pp_image]bark, to let me know it’s time to wake up! Oh no…I think…not yet., please… But nobody’s listening to that little voice inside me. The noise level is [...]

And Here Come Four More…

About a week ago, we took in a quartet of Shelties, all related. One was a female named Cassandra and another a male named Sherlock. They were the dam and sire, respectively, of the other two, 5½ month-old puppies Dakota (a smart and precocious boy) and Gypsy Rose (a darling, sweet, and smart-as-a-whip girl).

Sheltie Rescue has a beautiful two year old Collie-boy, just neutered, who’s very, very handsome, assertive, and a great agility prospect. He’ll soon be listed on SheltieRescueUT2.org. In the meantime, here are some photos.  His foster Mom, Sally, successfully begged for an early slot at the Spay and Neuter Clinic.  She told them [...]

Never Mind…

Yesterday, I blogged about Alex’ adoption to this great couple from Idaho. Well, today, the adoption got undone. There wasn’t anything wrong with Alex — in fact, he exceeded their expectations because (for example) he enjoyed riding in the car and didn’t cause conflict with Bunnie (their existing Sheltie). However, Diane and Tom thought that [...]

Down In The Salt Mines

Well, not really. But I’ve been spending a pretty good amount of time in the last couple of days (and a couple of days about two weeks ago) entering all sorts of new products into our web store, SheltieRescueMall.com. Most of what I’ve done is added all of the remaining towels in our new 2008 [...]

Oh, Alex, my Alex…

Today, one of our seniors, Alex (who’s been here for a pretty good while), went to meet his new family. Mom Dianne, dad Tom, and Sheltie-sis Bunnie drove down from Moscow, ID, to meet Alex and (they hoped) take him home with them. Their trip did not exactly go as planned — they had three [...]

“7 month old Sheltie Free to Good Home”

So one of our volunteers sees this ad on a local, free, online classified section and, as one of our great volunteers, she dutifully calls the owner of this Sheltie. “Yes!” says the owner, “we will turn our Sheltie over to Sheltie Rescue. Can we bring him to you today?” So as one of our [...]

I’m Still Cute!

Hi All,

Just had to share a couple glamor girl photos of our Jackie.Everyone who has known her since we got her says how much more confident she’s become and we agree.

As I expected, she’s very intelligent and obedient and a wonderful companion.  She’s on her stool beside me as I email.  My little shadow.  She’s [...]

Here’s Why We Do It

My Foster Dog

by Unknown Author

My foster dog stinks to high heaven.
I don’t know for sure what breed he is.
His eyes are blank and hard.
He won’t let me pet him and growls when I reach for him.
He has ragged scars and crusty sores on his skin.
His nails are long and his teeth, [...]
