Sandy with Santa

2/2/15 The Shetland Sheepdog Placement Services of NJ hearts' are saddened by the passing of Sandy. She was an amazing little girl who had a heart of gold. Sandy touched the hearts of everyone she met. Her foster family loved her very much. They cooked for her every day/night and treated her like their little princess. Sandy enjoyed the time she spent with them. She will be always in our memories.


UPDATE September 23, 1014 Our sweet Sandy just had her 2nd ultrasound done. She was having some difficulty breathing and it was discovered that she has pulmonary disease. She has just started taking a medication to help with the breathing and we are hopeful that it will help. Sandy has had 6 treatments with laser to help with the arthritis and it has been very beneficial to her. She has lost over 4.5 lbs which was great, because it has helped take the extra weight off of her body. We will continue to update the progress on little Sandy. If you would like to contribute towards Sandy's medical care or any one of our other sweet rescues, please go to our website and use the paypal button or contact Aneita directly at Sandy Thanks You for your support!

Sandy is a very sweet 11 year old sheltie who was surrendered to the SSPSNJ by her owners. She had a hard time getting around and our vets just recently found a mass between the liver and spleen. We have her scheduled for an ultra sound on Thursday July 17. She also has a thyroid issue and it is being monitored to make sure she gets the proper dosage of medicine. We will be posting more info on her soon. Due to the medical conditions she is posted as a forever foster.

Sandy has been having laser treatment. She has improved and is walking better since she started the treatment.

* 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.
