Welcome to the new Sheltie Rescue of GA, Inc. website!
(Fenced Yard Required)
Pippa is a very friendly girl who loves people and other dogs. She is playful and active, but will also lie quietly and chill-out with you. Another dog in her new home would be wonderful. For some reason, she doesn't like toys that make noise, but loves to play with empty paper towel rolls. Pippa is housebroken, but her foster mom is keeping her on a potty-schedule, for now. Pippa likes to sleep on the bed and has not been discouraged in doing so. She will ride in the car quietly in her crate, but "thinks" she should be your co-pilot in the passenger seat. She is good with grooming: brushing, toenails, and brushing her teeth. She walks well on the leash, knows how to sit and lay down. Pippa learned to use the doggy-door after being shown one time, so it is obvious that this little beauty is very smart. She is very trainable and her foster mom thinks she would make an awesome therapy dog. We are making pr...read more about Pippa - 1328

Lilly is a very sweet 1 year old pup. Although a fence is not required for Lilly, she is used to having access to one by way of a dog door so that needs to be taken in consideration. She loves to play with other dogs, loves children, and loves her squeaky toys! She is a very active and strong pup, so would do very well in a home with other dogs to play with, or with an active person or family who can provide exercise and activity for her. She is submissive to other dogs in the home, and seems like she would love to be a lap (or couch) dog! Lilly is house-trained and is learning to walk better on leash.
All we know about her heritage is that her Mom was a "Little Lassie" that was killed in a car accident when she was 3.5 weeks old. She and her siblings came into Rescue shortly after, so they have never been in a Shelter or Breeder type environment. They have always been in a loving home. We have no idea who her Dad was, but we are guessing she m...read more about Lilly - 1272

Stilts (callsign Sugar) (>>FENCE REQUIRED<<) is a little imp when she is comfortable in her environment, she initiates play with the other dogs. She is 4 years old. She will “follow” you anywhere, likes to be the last one to come in. She is very adaptable and non-confrontational with other dogs. She likes to play with fluffy toys. She is learning to walk on leash, sit and down.
She has come a long way in her foster home: She no longer turns to stone when picked up, she is being inquisitive and knows how to navigate stairs and a doggie door. The basketball is her absolute favorite toy. She'll bark when she wants thrown. She will play frisbee and bring it almost all the way back. She is a toy thief and steals from the other dogs, takes them to her place, and hoards them. She is almost 100% house broken.
For now, she is a bit shy and needs a home who can build trust w...read more about Stilts

Star (we are calling her Georgia) (>>FENCE REQUIRED<<) is a sweet girl. She loves to play and run with other dogs. She loves attention, but is a little shy with strangers. She loves to take treats and dances on her back legs. She is learning new things like walking on a leash and house training. She is almost accident free in the house, but might have a mistake in a new house until you show her a routine. She is very smart and does not mess her crate. She is food motivated and easily trained. Her foster Mom says she is so cute and adorable when she runs and plays that she brightens her day and makes her laugh out loud.

Speck (>>FENCE REQUIRED<<) - This little girl came in with the name Speck, but we are calling her Cassie. She is a super sweet and submissive girl. She gets along with other dogs and loves attention. She is learning common house manners like walking on leash and house training. We haven't had an accident in a long while. She is crate trained and prefers to nap there with the door open. Since she is super shy, she needs a very patient home. But her love and adaption to her pack is well worth the wait.
Speck needs a sheltie savvy home who will train her. Prior experience is required. She does not walk well on leash and is a serious flight risk if she ever got outside the fenced yard. Her personality makes her easy to train, but be sure you know she is a work in progress.

Springer came in with her buddy Cole. She was in need of serious veterinary care and we were happy to oblige. She was an outside dog, but is very eager to be a close part of your family. She follows you around, even trying to run a bit. She is grossly overweight, and needs to loose about 30 pounds. Yes, 30. She needs a thyroid bill twice a day, and that may be for the rest of her life. Luckily, they are not expensive. She, too is "debarked". Her new family must me committed to her new path to health with high quality food, exercise, love and routine vet care. She will reward you will love and kisses once she gets to know you. She warmed up to her foster family starting day one and has continued her progress ever since.

Sheltie Rescue of Ga., Inc. is a non-profit organization, composed solely of volunteers, dedicated to saving Shetland Sheepdogs (Shelties) who have been surrendered by their owners, neglected, abused, or are strays. Established in 1994, SRGA is the oldest and most respected organization of its kind in Georgia. We have placed more than 1100 dogs into permanent homes.
All "Rescued" Shelties are immediately taken to a veterinarian to be treated for any obvious medical condition, tested for heartworms and intestinal parasites, brought current on all shots (including rabies), started on heartworm and flea preventative, spayed or neutered and placed in a loving Foster Home until a suitable permanent home can be found. "Rescued" Shelties come in all ages, colors, sizes and personalities. Rarely do we have puppies under the age of (one) 1 year old.
