Toby

Our Toby has passed over the Rainbow Bridge.

We got a call about a senior sheltie who could barely walk. He was sad because he lost his sheltie brother and his owner was in a nursing home. She was not going back to her home and she went to live with family who would not let her bring her beloved pet. The daughter posted an email that made us ask her to take him to the vet to see if he was in too much pain to even rehome him.

Once we saw this very sad overweight boy we were concerned about him. With a diet change, friends to play with and in a foster home who just loves him, Toby is thriving again. They are working hard on helping him loose weight, he is a different dog and is enjoying life again.

This is what rescue is all about, seeing Toby so happy. We want to get more weight off him and have his paw heal from his nails being so long. But right now he is a forever foster.


* 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.
