I just wished to let you know my precious Gigi adopted from your organization crossed over the rainbow bridge. She was my best friend and companion and I can not thank you enough for allowing me to adopt her. She and Pumpkin and Nikki are running together now in grassy fields.
Gigi was adopted 7/26/09 and adjusted into our family of furry feet very well. With two big sisters; Pumpkin who was previously adopted also from SSPSNJ, and Abby (a german shepherd) to welcome her into our home she felt safe and secure immediately. After Pumpkin passed away, Gigi became very close with Abby.
Gigi enjoyed supervising my gardening skills and would sit in the shade with best buddy Abby watching as I plucked out weeds. Occasionally walking over to give sheltie kisses. In 2013 we retired and moved to Florida and she happily adjusted to her new surroundings and home, liking the long walks and having my husband and I home with them all the time. Gigi became ill quite suddenly on Jan 4th and was taken to the University of Florida Veterinary Hospital. With a very guarded prognosis of possible malignant neoplasia and bleeding into her abdomen the decision was made for humane euthanasia. My heart is broken over the loss of my baby girl but I know she is now at peace. Thank you again for all that your organization does for this wonderful breed!
* 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 us.
