Looking to adopt a Sheltie.

Post by GusCE6 » Wed Jul 05, 2017 1:53 pm

Hello everybody- this is my first post here.

Last year in June my Collie/Husky(?) mix Skipper was diagnosed with cancer: a tumor on the heart. This year in late April he died.

He was adopted with his goofy sister Molly as two-month old pups from an Amish place and they spent their whole lives together. Molly can be a pushy loudmouth but is not aggressive towards other dogs. I am trying to find another dog since she should not be alone, and am thinking of rescuing a homeless Sheltie, since I've always liked the breed.

I've been involved in dog rescue for over three decades, mostly Kesshonden, although Wire Fox Terriers, a Doberman Pinscher, a Norwegian Elkhound, Pit Bulls, and various mixes were also involved. So I've had plenty of experience working with dogs.

I live in Central New York, so- does anyone here know of any Sheltie rescue groups near Herkimer County?

Thank you.
