Ms Macaulay ~ Adopted

13268486_10154040857284792_8488673687990448536_oThis poor sweet girl was abandoned by her family. They moved away, and left her behind to fend for herself. As you can see her coat is severely matted, and the light has gone out of her eyes.

As we all know, dogs are stronger and more forgiving than most human beings. With love and care, we can help her regain her health and her trust in people, but we need your help.

She is a purebred sheltie and is estimated to be between 3 and 5 years old. Please take a moment to donate to our vet care fund, so we can help this baby, and many others!  Thank you so much. More photos and updates on this Sheltie girl coming soon! ♥ 13308466_10154040857279792_1029018648060403081_o

Once Macaulay is ready, she will be available for adoption. If you are interested in being considered for Ms Macaulay please read Our Adoption Process, answer the questions presented, and email us. You can also Check out her Photos on Facebook!

6/3/16 Update: So we shaved Macaulay down and discovered this sweet little boy was actually a sweet girl! Life is rough when you are so matted down that we can’t tell what gender you are! That being said, Macaulay is looking a lot more comfortable now and has arrived with TDL!

 

7/4/16 Update: Happy 4th for Ms Macaulay. Ms. Mac was adopted by the Berdeauxs of Port Orange. They recently lost a dog and their other dog was very sad and lonely. Looks Mac is fitting right in with her new family. Congrats!

Kit, the Foxy Sheltie ~ Adopted!

Kit, the Foxy Sheltie

Kit, the Foxy Sheltie

Kit is estimated to be about 3-4 years of age.  She needs some grooming, but she’s still stunning!  Kit is very friendly and affectionate.  She was transported from Alabama yesterday, so she is still decompressing a bit!  We can see that she is a Sheltie, but many of us have said she is a fox!  We will be providing you with more details about her shortly!  The shelter says she is good with dogs, cats and kids!

We have a lot of great photos of Kit, and you can see them on her Facebook page.

 

Kit is in excellent health and is great with basic commands. She would do best as an only dog but we are not ruling out other possibilities.

9/9/15 Update: Kit was adopted by the Colberts of Daytona yesterday. Deborah is planning on taking Kit to work with her, and on visits to nursing homes. Yay, Kit!

KiKi, the Shorgie ~ Adopted!

10941268_10205045546153757_1589702525_n

 

1/25/15 Update: Exciting news for Kiki, She found her family! Pam and Art of Debary, FL fell for this little girl and decided it was time for her to be part of their family. Congratulations to them all!

 

 

 

 

1112/22/14 Update: Unfortunately we received word that due to changes in her owners health Kiki needs to find a new home. Kiki would do best in a quiet home, willing to crate her when things get exciting, as visitors can make her a bit anxious. She is not a fan of Kitties, and is unsure of new dogs, but once she has time to adjust she can learn to be friends. Kiki is also a little unsure about younger children, so a home with older, or no children would be ideal. More information to come.

Check out her Photos on Facebook.

KiKi doing the Magpie Look!

05/30/12 Update:  Woah!  KiKi is most definitely a herding dog, and she is good at it!  She has the low stare, the perfect stance, the focus and the desire to control movement.  I’m not at all surprised.  She has been shedding many unwanted pounds, is enjoying her daily walks and has accepted the fact that table scraps are not dog food!  KiKi should be adopted by a quiet couple, with no young children (as she will nip to control) and no cats.  KiKi would do very well on a farm where her talents and skills are needed.  When handled by a professional, her herding and prey drive could easily be redirected with a frisbee, flyball or agility training.

Marjie Wolfe, and Shelter Director Tracey Breen, send me several photos of this cute little thing.  I was hoping I would find a way to make room for her, and I did!  Kiki’s owner had to go into an assisted living facility after her health issues became a serious concern. Kiki is about 4-5 years old. She had lived with a pack of smaller dogs. She is a Sheltie, but a low-rider! She has Corgi legs and my daughter, Sarah says she’s a Shorgi! Unfortunately, Kiki needs to shed some pounds. I’ve been calling her Special K! Looks like her owner took very good care of her, and her dinner might have consisted of biscuits and gravy!

She is an awesome little dog, housebroken, smart, loves to go on walks, does not bark like most Shelties. At first she reminded me of Garcon, and Tiny Tim…. then I saw her spots and said, Shenandoah (Connie), and who could forget the Borgies?  They were one of the most stinking cute litters we ever rescued, but when the sunlight hit her face just right, I looked down at her and saw Magpie!  She is going to the vet this week, we will check for a spay mark, and if she needs to be spayed, we’ll take care of that!  She has had all of her shots, and has been microchipped.  Sarah paraded her around the neighborhood last night, and she was a major hit!

KiKi, the Shorgie!

Her giant photo album can be viewed on Facebook!

Update:  Yesterday was a hoot!  We took KiKi to Val-u-Vet in Deltona to see if she has been spayed and to have her nails cut (they were pretty long).  But before we got down to business, I asked all of the employees, (about 10-12) to guess her breed.  Definitely Corgi legs, but is she a Border Collie or a Sheltie. It was split down the middle… Dr. Oliver guessed Sheltie because of her coat, and I agree.  Others suggested Border Collie because of the spots on her nose and legs, and I agree.  This is one dog that really should be DNA tested!  So I’m no closer to suggesting if she’s a Shorgie or a Borgie!  One thing is for sure, she’s a doll!

 

 

Captain Jack Sparrow, the Sheltie Boy~Adopted.

Captain Jack Sparrow, the Sheltie

Captain Jack Sparrow, the Sheltie

Captain Jack came to us from Miami-Dade thanks to Patty Duenas who pulled him and transporter Jennifer that drove him to his foster. He was picked up as a stray and was described as very, very scared in the shelter environment.

This little Sheltie boy was in serious trouble, and we didn’t even know it.

Patty Wrote: He has a few staples on his neck that need to be removed in a week. He had a cut on his neck. Vet said that the “dreads” he had were pulling his skin apart. They weighed a lot. This dog broke my heart. I bathed him on Wednesday. He is so sad. He was not doing well in shelter environment. Can’t wait to see him flourish in a living home.

I’ve never heard of a dog needing grooming so much that it literally split his skin… that’s gross.  Michelle Kamber in Boynton Beach is fostering this little boy, and  he immediately was invited to play with her dog, Trixie!  While he was terrified at the shelter, he’s playing in foster care!

Happy Boy on Transport!

Happy Boy on Transport!

While we see the Sheltie in him, his ears and nose has us a bit confused.  He doesn’t have short little legs, so your guess is as good as mine! Jack is 25 pounds and while the shelter thought he was  5, we disagree and feel like he is  more likely about 3 years old.

9/14/14 Update: Michelle writes: “As soon as he got to our home, his tail started wagging and hasn’t stopped much since. I was prepared to spend a few days helping him get over is fright but that wasn’t necessary.   He was happy to explore the yard and loved meeting our dog. He seems to like other dogs a lot and has been following our pup Trixie around like a shadow. He’s met the cats too but couldn’t care less about them.

Captain Jack is not overly clingy to the humans but will come around for affection every so often and then is happy to go play with the dog. He’s more likely to follow another dog around the house than the human. He has a very sweet personality and has been perfectly behaved so far. He’s potty trained, gentle, quiet, playful with other dogs and loves to have his ears scratched. Jack is not too sure about toys, it’s like he’s never seen them before. We are working on getting him to realize the fun of all the toys in the basket. My baby nephew came over yesterday and he was perfect with him as well.

Captain Jack Sparrow

He is a fan of the couch!

9/28/14 Update: Michelle writes: “We’ve had Captain Jack for a little over two weeks now and boy has he come out of his shell!  He’s one of the most loving, sweet and easy dogs I’ve fostered.  He got his staples out from his neck boo-boo last week and was a star at the vet’s office.  Everyone fell in love with the good nature and cuteness of our Captain.
He has become super affectionate.  He loves to be pet and scratched all over and will melt his body into your legs for more.  Captain Jack is great with dogs, cats, and people of all ages.  He also gets very excited about car rides and when the leash comes out.

We will get more updates soon, but in the meantime, you can visit his photo album on Facebook.

Captain Jack is going home!

Captain Jack is going home!

Update:   Captain Jack was adopted by Rick of Fort Myers.  He’s making himself at home and creating a relationship with Rick’s cats!  Can’t wait for updates!  You can see more adoption photos on his facebook album.

4/7/16 Update: It is with a heavy heart that we share the news of Jack’s passing. 3 weeks ago he was diagnosed with a heart issue which ultimately became too much. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family as they grieve his loss.

Honey Boo Boo~Adopted

Stinking Cute!

This little one is only 6-7 weeks old.  It’s too soon to tell her breed.  She presents Collie or Sheltie, maybe Aussie, we’re just now sure.  She really reminds me of our Nutella.  Jackie will be giving us more information about her personality shortly.

Her photo album is on Facebook.  I don’t think she’s a real dog, she looks like a stuffed animal to me!

She’s being fostered by Jackie in the Miami-Dade area.

 

 

 

 

Honey Boo Boo and the Lee Family!

Honey Boo Boo must have received over 20 emails of interest. Jackie went through them all, but we only have one Honey Boo Boo! She was adopted by the Lee family last week…. and Jackie is identifying many adorable dogs that need good homes… so stay stuned!

Too Cute to be Real!
