Taz is a handsome, sweet, lovable, well-mannered senior fellow, who was surrendered to us, due to the inability of his former owners to care for him. He is nine-years-old and is perfectly housebroken, walks well on-lead and loves to ride in the car. He is fed in his crate, only because there are several dogs in his foster home and it keeps chaos from erupting. However, he is great in the house and does not need to be crated, even at night. Taz is a healthy boy, whose only issue is being overweight, but he is on a diet and has already lost eight pounds of his original 40. His goal weight is around 26-27 lbs. He is definitely getting to it quite nicely.
Taz really has no bad habits, but he is sensitive to certain sounds, like the coffee grinder, the paper shredder and the disposal. Well, he IS a Sheltie, after all! Taz is great with the other dogs in his foster home and he is excellent with the two cats, as well. He still has plenty of energy for an older pup, loves ...read more about Taz - 1268
Rupert is a very young boy who is crate-trained, housebroken and used to a dog-door. He insists on attention, is very intense and needs lots of exercise. He is quite the athlete and adores children. He can be food aggressive, so it is best that he be fed in his crate. He is absolutely just the perfect Sheltie.
Rupert needs to be in a secure environment with other well-socialized dogs. I am recommending this because just general interaction with humans would never be enough exercise for him unless we are talking roadwork, trails or a treadmill. An obedience class would do wonders for this boy. He is already a good dog but he could be GREAT. He really needs a job and would do well in agility, frisbee, flyball, herding, etc. Rupert’s new people will need some patience when exposing him to new things and situations. He can be very stubborn!!! No crawling children; they must be at least 6 years of age. Cats...read more about Rupert - 1207
Amai is a great companion dog! She is loyal and snuggly and sweet! She is a bit of a Houdini and will escape any crate, room or fence just to get to her people!! IF she cannot see you, she will do whatever it takes to get to you. You will never find a more loyal dog willing to please you.
Amai had a hard childhood. She has broken teeth and a scarred muzzle like a puppy mill dog, but was
in a loving home. She has had a dental, so nothing more needs to be done. She cannot have people food or any treats other than her Salmon and Sweet Potato food due to the allergies. This is what caused break outs and scarring on her muzzle.
Amai loves to take walks, and play fetch. She knows sit and shake. Although she is a bit thin, she is very active and healthy (and FUN!) and we are slowly increasing her weight. She is amazingly well behaved, plays with big and small dogs, and lights up the moment you get home. She loves her foster dad, but prefers her foster mom if given a choi...read more about Amai 1228

Max is a very handsome, sweet boy. He is crate-trained, housebroken and used to a dog-door. He will ask for attention and loves to be close to his human(s). Max is sound sensitive, as many Shelties are, and can be a little food aggressive, so it is best that he be fed in his crate to make sure the other dogs don't get pushed away from their own bowls.
He has an eye condition called Micro-ophthalmic, which we believe was once referred to as “Collie eye.” This condition should be monitored from time-to-time. Max appears to be far-sighted and has somewhat diminished night vision, which means he doesn't see objects the same way the other dogs do and that can, on occasion, cause a strange reaction to things like the outside trash can, or grill. Max needs a dog-savvy person who understands that this pretty boy will always be a work in progress. He is smart and has done extremely well on many levels.
Max needs to be in a secure e...read more about Maxwell 1219
1/11/13 Update: Maggie is settling in and learning how to play with other dogs. She has slimmed down to a nice weight and is more energetic. She keeps her foster Mom on her toes by counter surfing and trashcan diving - probably some of her survival skills from being a stray for so long. She is quiet but gets excited at treat and feeding times. She uses the dog door regularly and her house training is reliable. She will shyly seek out rump rubs; those are her favorites.
6/22/12 Update: Maggie learned the dog door! She can go in and out as she wishes, but prefers to be inside. Smart girl. She also is cat tested and approved!
6/6/12 Update: Maggie continues to enjoy being an indoor dog. She gets along with all the others, and sticks near her foster people. She still does not appreciate being pet, but her foster mom thinks she can gain her confidence. Maggie is happy and healthy and living the life of luxury!
Maggie was a stray for over 9 years. She was fe...read more about Maggie 1227

Buddy is a sweet boy. He needs a home who will give him the instruction every young dogs needs: boundaries, house breaking, basic commands, no bark. He loves his people and loves to play with other dogs. He can be nippy, and needs training. Therefore, he must go to a home with a fenced yard and no children under the age of 11. He is the happiest little boy who loves attention. He does need a commitment to go to basic obedience classes, and I know he will do very well. He is crate trained, rides well in a car, and walks well on lead.
Buddy has been neutered, is up-to-date on shots and heartworm prevantive, and has recently been groomed. He stands 17 inches tall and weighs 25 pounds. His adoption fee is $350.

This sweet girl is very demure and lady like in everything she does. She comes across as shy at first, but it is only “Sheltie Shy” if you are familiar at all with Shelties. Believe me she has no problem asking for a pet or a scratch behind the ears…but she does it so softly with those big brown eyes looking at you.. it is hard to ignore.
She was dumped in a shelter with a litter of puppies that were taken away from her way too soon. Her foster home thinks that is why she loves to carry around stuffed toys in her mouth (so darn cute)! She has been groomed and her coat is beginning to grow in nicely.
Ginger likes the company of other dogs and sometimes tries to engage them in play, but most often she just likes to just stay around her people. She is very good on lead and does not pull at all. Her foster home believes she would love nothing more than to take nice walks with her adoptive home if that is what her family does! ...read more about Ginger 1264

Cooper was found as a very terrified stray. We took him in and had him fully vetted. He is learning confidence at a lightening fast pace. The best thing is he is so small, expressive, and adorable he will be a nice companion. He will eliminate outside on leash, and loves to play with other dogs.
Keep in mind he will not be available for adoption until he greets strangers readily and walks well on leash.
Weight 13 pounds
Cooper has been neutered, is up-to-date on shots and heartworm preventive, and has recently been groomed. His adoption fee is $250.
