Rescue Me ID: 17-03-21-00469Logan (male)

Shetland Sheepdog Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Single border collie mix male (SBCMM) seeks single female for companionship and adoration. Likes long walks to the refrigerator, naps on the couch, and barking at the cable guy. Are you Logan's forever home? Logan is looking for the retirement life! He's a sweet, quiet, protective older man in a dog body and just KNOWS there's got to be a home out there for him. He's been with our program for a few months and would really like a home (and a lady) to call his own. When we say he's a sweet old man, we mean it! He's a little grumbly when the cable guy comes around, barks at strangers on his lawn, and would prefer to take a quiet amble down ... (Read More)a quiet street rather than a high-octane hike in the mountains. He is absolutely adorable and fluffy as all get out (seriously, he's actually half the size he appears - all that is HAIR). He's not so fond of the gentlemen, but adores the ladies. And look at all he has to offer: he'll let you know when someone's at the door, without question. He's not so terribly fond of kids unless they're older and can respect his space. He's fine with cats that also respect his lifestyle of napping in the sun, begging for snacks, and then napping in the sun some more. He's gentle when he does take treats, and just really wants someone to chill around, where he can make the highlight of his day watching out the window. Logan probably needs to be an only dog, as he's pretty not interested in sharing affection. He's a wonderful guy if you're looking for an older, calmer, quieter companion to share your home with. Logan is in good health, up to date on shots, neutered, heartworm negative, and up to date on heartworm and flea prevention. His jumping through hoops and burning rings of flame days are over, and he'd much rather settle down into retirement. If you'd like to adopt Logan, please go to, click on adoptable dogs, and then on Logan's photo to get to the adoption application. This sweet old man will be waiting! Logan is being fostered in Zuni, VA. (Less)

Shetland Sheepdog Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    COURTESY POST FOR NORTHERN VA. SHELTIE RESCUE IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BRIDGET, PLEASE GO TO Although Bridget is not a Sheltie, (we think she is a Shepherd mix), her NVSR friends are helping to find her forever home. She is a dog who loves people and making new friends - human or canine. Bridget has a big bark when she sees strangers, but she is only asking them to come pet her! Her foster family says she is very smart, is anxious to please, and enjoys practicing 'sit', 'wait', 'crate', and 'heel.' She can fetch, too! Bridget loves to learn new things and play games with people. She enjoys playing with another dog her ... (Read More)size, but because she can be a little rough when she gets excited, small dogs and cats aren't the right playmates for her. Young children might be afraid of her because she is strong and might knock them down accidentally. Running around a big fenced yard is one of Bridget's favorite things as long as people are with her. Her foster mom says she is a 'velcro dog.' But she doesn't have to be playing every minute. She is quiet and will rest at her humans' feet when it's time to settle down. She sleeps in a big crate and is quiet as a mouse all night long. This friendly girl loves to go for rides in the car as well as walks wearing her harness. She never chews anything she is not supposed to, but she loves her Kong Bone, especially with peanut butter stuffed inside. Bridget has a good appetite but she tends to eat too fast, so she has a special slow-eat bowl so she won't gobble her food. As long as Bridget doesn't have to go too long without a potty break, you can count on her reliable housetraining. She's been brought up to date on all her vaccines and is ready for her new home. As much as her foster family loves her and she loves them, Bridget wants a person of her own who will be around a lot. Could that be you? Bridget is ... 5 years old, 40 pounds, and 19 inches tall. Her adoption fee is $250 'Bridget is fostered in South Boston VA.' . IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BRIDGET, PLEASE GO TO (Less)
