Rescued Shelties

Have you thought of adding a rescued sheltie to your home?

There are several of us breeders in the Ottawa area, along with a couple of companion owners that stepped up when there was a major need to help a large number of shelties after a hoarding/cruelty seizure that took place over a month ago.


All these dogs have been spayed/neutered, vaccinations updated, heartworm tested, microchipped and any dental work attended to.

Presently in the Ottawa area we have a 7 yr old sable and white female; a sweet red sable boy, approx 5 yrs of age and an 8.5 yr old sable boy. All homes must have a fenced yard. All dogs are fully crate trained. They have been doing well in their foster homes, so we look forward to homes that can continue with their socialization and provide a loving environment.

You can find an application for consideration of these dogs on Petfinder.com under sheltierescuesos. SOUTHERN ONTARIO SHELTIE RESCUE
http://www.sheltierescuesos.petfinder.com/
You can email me for further direction/email to SOS Rescue if you are interested in finding out more.

What lovely looking dogs -- but is it just me or does anyone else notice a difference in their eyes? They look a bit lost...wary, I guess but if you scroll down and look at the pictures of your Shelamo shelties there's a brightness in the eyes and a whole different way of carrying themselves.

I think that they look sad right now, probably missing their former home. I hope that they soon find new human families to love. I believe that Petfinder lists about 17 Shelties that were taken in by SOS Rescue from this one source. If we can't adopt any of them ourselves right now, think about making a donation to SOS Rescue or contact Maureen.

Those pics were taken shortly after they came into our care and they were just getting to know their new environment; yes they were 'lost'. The ones we have are all adjusting quite well. The vet bills are enormous; adoption fees won't even begin to cover them.

How much does it cost to adopt one of these shelties? I'm sorry if the information is posted somewhere :S I couldn't find it.

all depends on age/condition of each dog; you'd have to contact SOS rescue and start with an adoption form
