SSPSNJ only accepts adoption applications from New Jersey residents.
In order to be considered, RENTERS must submit their Renter's Agreement along with their adoption application.

Cody2, is a 7 yr old sable and white, male sheltie who is on the taller size. Unfortunately, he was surrendered to us by the owner due to unfortunate circumstances. Cody2 enjoys the company of people and gets along with other dogs and cats. He walks good on a leash, rides well in the car, and knows a few obedience commands. He loves to play. He is a happy fellow! We are requiring his new home to have a fenced in yard If you are interested in meeting Cody2, please go to our website and fill out an adoption application at


If you are interested in adopting Cody2 please go the the Shetland Sheepdog Placement Services of NJ website and fill out an Adoption Application or if you are interested in donating to help our shelties find forever homes, please go to our DONATION web page. Thank you.

* 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.
