Not much has been happening, rescue-wise, in the last couple of days. We got a call from Jeff, the man who adopted Shadow, reporting that she’s settled in and is having a great time. You might recall that, in the same week, they adopted another rescue Sheltie (named "Kali") from Sheltie Shack in Kansas. Well, [...]
Barbara told me on the phone this morning (I’m on the road until the end of next week) that Shadow will be adopted this weekend, probably Sunday. She’s been talking to a family who lives in California but who happens to be in Colorado at the moment. They have just adopted a (young female) rescued [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
This video focuses just on our new little rescued Sheltie girl, 16 week old Tessa. She’s probably going to be a very small-sized Sheltie given how much smaller she is than her sister Shadow and even Meggie, her already adopted sister. Tessa has, kind of unexpectedly, made friends with one of our puppy mill Shelties [...]
This evening, our friends and rescue colleagues Cynthia and Marie dropped by with Marie’s puppy Layla (whom she adopted from us when she — the puppy, that is — was named Lucy). Among other things, Marie wanted to finalize the contract for Layla’s adoption, and both of them wanted to meet puppies Shadow and Tessa. [...]
Well, tomorrow morning is when Barbara goes under the knife again, so we’ve been pretty busy the last few days trying to get the house and everything else as ready as we can. Of course, I’ll have more to do while she’s in the hospital to prepare for her homecoming (probably by Wednesday or Thursday!). [...]
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 [...]
