Shiloh (Cosmo) has found his forever home. He's been adopted.
Shiloh is a sweet, very playful and smart sheltie. He is 2+ years old but is still puppy-like and very affectionate. He is oversize for a sheltie but will cuddle with you on your lap if you let him.
Shiloh needs someone who can spend the time focusing on his training to learn basic commands and house manners but is very food responsive and quick to pick up on what's asked of him. He is partially house-trained and is crate trained. He loves to go into his crate for dinner time and sleep. He has a lot of energy that needs to be directed into purposeful activities. He doesn't mind being handled for grooming etc. and he loves to play with other dogs. He needs guidance and direction for his energy and smarts and will move along quickly with right person/family to care for him.
SSPSNJ will not place him with cats and he is compatible with non-aggressive dogs. He walks well on a leash but will need a fenced-in yard, no exceptions! Shiloh will be OK with older kids.
* We do not permit adoptions of shelties as gifts. If you would like to give one as a gift you can contact us for advice on how to handle the situation.
Please note that we do NOT adopt to homes with children under the age of 10. Herding dogs, especially shelties, tend to chase whatever/whoever is running & they often will nip at the back of legs in their attempt to gather everyone into a neat, manageable area.
If you cannot adopt but would like to make a donation or to sponsor one of our forever fosters, seniors or special needs dogs, please email Aneita.
