Welcome to the new Sheltie Rescue of GA, Inc. website!
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 may have a bit of Boxer or Bulldog in her ...read more about Lillly - 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 with her. Stilts/Sugar has been spayed and ...read more about Stilts
Sir Flop (>>FENCE REQUIRED<<) - His foster Mom calls him Fopsy-Fop. He is an adorable BIG personality, but pretty shy. He loves to play with other dogs (after he gets to know them). He and his foster mom play "I'll get you" which makes him get the zoomies. He is a very fast runner. Sir Flop also loves to rub on the chain link fence and looks so cute doing it. He is a great companion, but afraid of loud noises. He is learning basic household manners like crate training and walking on leash. He is house broken and crate trained. He would prefer to sleep with his human instead of in a crate. He is an adorable boy, but shy at first.

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.

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.
