An update on Dakota(Cody now)...

He is the best dog, and he has a new brother Beau. Beau is a rescue from Minnesota and together the two of them have so much fun. They’re both good travelers and we’re so happy to have both of them. They have completed their beginner classes in obedience and passed [...]

Dakota’s New Adventure

Well, we’re down to 13 dogs (for today, at least — we may get another one tomorrow). Dakota just left with a fantastic retired couple from near Twin Falls, ID. For the moment, it’s a "foster" situation, but everybody believes that it won’t stay that way for long…it’ll turn into an adoption. (In fact, the [...]

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:

Busy Weekend!

Wow. Where to start?

Yesterday morning, the lovely people who rescued Daisy (a/k/a Daisy Mae) three or four years ago (and nursed her through the loss of her leg — which was caused by her being hit by a car, not an infection as I suggested yesterday!) brought her over to our house. Daisy was a [...]

Senior Adopts Puppy

Well, today was Tessa’s adoption day. Mid-afternoon, a slightly elderly man (let’s call him John, since that’s his name ) and his son (we’ll call him John too…same reason) came over for the older John to meet and adopt Tessa. Barbara had done a very careful pre-screen of this gentleman and we’d agreed [...]

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 [...]

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 — [...]
