Snickers and Blondie

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.

SSPSNJ has received two new senior shelties named Snickers and Blondie. These two shelties were loved very much by their owner, but unfortunately because of medical circumstances, the owner could no longer keep them. Snickers and Blondie had bloodwork tests done, were microchipped and they will both be getting a very needed dental cleaning soon. Snickers is starting to have kidney issues and Blondie is on thyroid medication. Both shelties were professionally groomed and they are very well mannered, housebroken and get along with other dogs and are fine with people. They must stay together.

If you would like to contribute to their medical costs, PLEASE contribute whatever you can to help us help them with their medical costs. Thank you. SSPSNJ

If you are interested in adopting Snickers and Blondie 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.
