Hi, my name is Sandy and I am a 1.5 year old male Sable Sheltie. I came into LISSR a little while ago and it’s taking me a little while to adjust to being loved by my foster family. I love my foster mom and I am beginning to trust all the rest of my foster family. I am pretty active because, after all, I am only a puppy! I do love to play with other young dogs especially Shelties! I am a good eater and I sleep in my crate or the kitchen at night. Sometimes I like to sleep in my foster mom’s bed! I’m not too sure if I would be afraid of young children but I can be a great companion because I’ve learned how nice it is to sleep in someone’s lap. It might take me a little bit to transition to your family but I would love a home where I can play with other dogs in a nice big backyard with a fence.

Daisy, is a 10 yr. old Sable/White Female Sheltie.  She is totally housebroken, friendly, and obedient.  Daisy is one happy sheltie. She is a gorgeous sable.  She is a little above standard height.

Daisy will make a wonderful companion.  She walks on a leash.  She is just a perfect ambassador for the breed.

Daisy came into rescue from a loving family with children who could not afford medical care for Daisy.  She had had an ACL injury. LISSR decided to try a new and innovative medical treatment. Daisy had stem cell surgery…her own stem cells are rebuilding her torn ligaments.  She was a great patient and has recovered nicely.

Daisy loves other shelties.  She would be a wonderful new family member to any family or person.

There's a new little man in town!!! Meet Trooper. Trooper is 7 years old that came into rescue when his owner became ill and needed to move to a nursing home. He is more than a bit chubby and we will be working with him to shed some lbs. Trooper won't be available for adoption until he is neutered and fully vetted. When he is done with his weight management he should be only 15 lbs, a little guy. So, when he is available for adoption the lucky family will have to make a commitment to continue on his weight reduction plan. 🥕 🍓 🥒

April is a beautiful sable, loving, high-energy 9 month-old Sheltie puppy. She’s very long, tall, and slender. There’s nothing April loves more than running across the yard at top speed, except maybe cuddling up for a belly rub. April loves playing catch and tug of war. If a squirrel runs across the yard, she is sure to chase after.  April is house broken and she knows basic commands; sit, stay, up, and come. She needs additional training on good leash behaviors. April is social and gets along well with other dogs, as well as cats. April is very playful, so make sure any other pets are open to this type of attention. Any new person that enters your house is her new best friend. She makes herself at home quickly in many different environments. April has a good appetite and loves snacks.
