A Pack Update

Actually, there’s been a fair amount of stuff going on with our pack over the last week or so. Let me try to catch up a bit.

Right now, we have 13 dogs in house, including our own two (Star and Abby). I’ll go through the 11 rescues one at a time:

* Chuy is deteriorating. He [...]

New Boy Cole Already Adopted

Sometimes, it just works out. Let’s hope this is one of those times.

A week or so ago, we took in a young (7 month old) tri-color male named Cole. Cole was pretty shy, moreso of men than of women, but not great even with women. He spent a fair amount of his time in [...]

They Come and They Go

I’ve been so busy annoying you all with my tribulations with this blog, that I haven’t actually blogged recently about the purpose of this whole thing: Sheltie Rescue!

Lemme see…and please forgive me if I’ve told you some of this previously…

Cassie came back to us (I know I did tell you this). But she went to [...]

And Then There Were…

It’s only 10:00 in the morning and we’re already up one dog. At about 9:00, a couple and their 3-year old daughter came over to drop off their 7-month old puppy, a tri-color Sheltie named Cole. Their reason: He’s too shy and runs away from their daughter. Well, they’re a nice family, and the daughter [...]

I Guess a Dozen Just Isn’t Enough

Well, for a few days, since Tzar died, we’ve been down to an even dozen dogs in the house, about as low as we’ve been in over a year. It just couldn’t last, could it?

Since Barbara got back home yesterday afternoon, we’ve learned that Cassie’s coming back to us. Her family’s unhappy that she hasn’t [...]

Two out, four in

Well, in the last three days, we’ve placed two rescued Shelties (Cassie and Shelbee) into new homes, and we took in (today) four new rescues. Sigh…

The newcomers are:

Cooper — a 20-month old male Sheltie with a very striking face: it’s over half white. He’s a little skittish about men, but did let me rub his [...]

Cassie’s Got a Forever Home

Back in (I think) August 2008, four Shelties were turned over to us together. They were:

Cassie — A mahogany sable and white girl about nine years old who had (about five months earlier) given birth to three puppies
Sherlock — A blue merle boy about three years old who was the sire of those puppies
Dakota — [...]
