Animal ID: D120257Sheldon (male)

Shetland Sheepdog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Pics coming very soon. Sheldon is such a smart and happy boy, it's so far hard to understand why his people did not come get him from the shelter we found him in. We believe we have it spot on when we say Sheldon is a Collie/Sheltie mix boy due to his size, personality, coloring, and smarts. He is between three and five years old. Sheldon is so very very good. He knows and follows basic verbal commands very well, and who knows? He probably knows even more than we have tested him with. He LOVES to go on walks and lights up when he sees the leash come out. And he especially loves being with his people. Sheldon gets along well with ... (Read More)dogs and is of 'average' temperament - he is not dominant but does not tolerate being dominated. He does very well in the car and in a crate. Being on the smart side he is a little cautious of new things though. If you are interested in meeting and potentially adopting Sheldon, please go to the Adoption Process page on our website - throwmeabonedogrescue.org. There you can read about our requirements and find the link for the adoption application. All potential adopters are expected to complete an application and provide pictures of their yard, patio, and/or balcony making sure we can see the fence line and/or railing. The application can be completed and submitted from our website - throwmeabonedogrescue.org - and is found under Resources. Applications will be reviewed for approval before setting an appointment to come meet and possibly adopt the dog of interest. In addition, those who live in a rental property are expected to provide proof that they are allowed to have a dog where they live. Each of our rescued dogs has been de-wormed if necessary, de-flea'd (with topical treatment if old enough, and by medicated bath if too young), spayed/neutered, microchipped, is up to date on shots, and has been fully examined by a veterinarian. In addition, each adopted dog comes with a starter baggie of the food it has been eating, a few treats for training purposes, a rawhide chew, a lead and collar, and a folder containing pertinent records.

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-27-00575Tigger (male)

Shetland Sheepdog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    When Tigger's owner died, we never thought it would be difficult to find him a wonderful home. But we were wrong. We have had many inquiries on Tigger, but they're all from out of the area, and even though everyone SAYS they will travel for him, no one has yet to follow through. Poor Tigger is still waiting. He deserves SO much better! Tigger just may be the best little dog in the world. He is just the right size to play and romp with you, as well as be a happy lap dog. He loves to be with his people and taking part in whatever you're doing. At just barely four years old, he's the perfect age to be past all the naughty puppy stages but ... (Read More)young enough to be with you for many happy years to come. He has a calm, easy going Sheltie nature tempered with just enough terrier energy to make for a perfect personality. He also has basic obedience training and is a good boy in the house. He loves to sleep in bed with his people and is a great little 'hot water bottle' on cold nights. Very athletic, he can jump a four foot gate, but would rather be in the house with you. PLEASE inquire about Tigger ONLY if you are SERIOUSLY INTERESTED IN HIM. If you are making a list of multiple dogs to inquire about, pass him by. He is MUCH too special to be anyone's 'consolation prize'. We keep our listings updated, and reply to all inquiries within 48 hours. Thank you for considering the BEST little dog in the world! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-31-00181Kody (male)

Shetland Sheepdog    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    This beautiful puppy was placed as a baby with a wonderful older woman who is now having to move in with family and cannot take him along. He has always been well loved and gently treated. Incredibly intelligent and perceptive, Kody is a little shy at first with new people but warms up with patience and love. He has not been around many children but has a stable temperament and could learn to love a sensitive older child. This very special little dog will quickly become the love of your life. Please inquire about him ONLY if he particularly touches your heart. We respond to all inquiries within 48 hours, but don't have time or energy to ... (Read More)deal with those making lists of 'possiblie matches' or those not seriously ready to commit to this dog in particular. Thank you for your interest in Kody! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-28-00455Freddie (male)

Shetland Sheepdog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Freddie has been looking for someone he can take care of. We've had a lot of inquiries on him from the other side of the country, but no one has been able to travel to get him. They are really missing out on a great little dog! His owner died, and his mother, a purebred Yorkie, and his father, a black and white toy sized Sheltie, have both found wonderful homes. (Both Yorkies and Shelties are long lived breeds, so you should expect Freddie to be with you for at least another dozen years or more). Little Freddie needs an empty lap to fill, a soft voice to respond to, and an adoring human to love. He has great house manners, is obedience ... (Read More)trained, a little shy with new people, but warms up like the champion lap dog he is. He has always known gentle treatment and is sensitive to your feelings in a way that is almost uncanny. If Freddie particularly touches your heart, please inquire about him. If, however, you're just making a list of dogs to ask about, or if you're not seriously committed and prepared to making him a cherished member of your household, then please pass him by. Freddie is a VERY special little dog and he deserves only someone who's interest is serious, strong, and motivated by a genuine connection to him. All inquiries will receive a response within 48 hours. Thank you for considering dear little Freddie. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-27-00256Tippy (male)

Shetland Sheepdog Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Don't pass up this dear little puppy! Just barely over a year, Tippy's owner has died and he is looking for a lap, a snuggle buddy, and a place next to you on your pillow. He is probably the most cuddly little guy you're ever going to meet. Along with that, he's exceptionally bright and trainable, has good house manners, and a genuine desire to please. He's always lived in one home with a senior lady who has passed on, and known nothing but love. He may be a little shy in new situations, but will come around with encouragement and patience. Please inquire about Tippy only if he particularly touches your heart. If you're making a list of ... (Read More)dogs to *consider*, or are just curious, please don't waste our time and energy. While we love to talk with SERIOUSLY interested people, and return all calls and emails within 48 hours, we are all volunteers and have no time or interest in dealing with looky loos. Tippy is a VERY special little dog and deserves someone who fully appreciates him. If you sincerely believe he's the dog for you, we look forward to hearing from you, Thank you! (Less)
