Chloe is an approximately 12 year old “sheltie” mix that we got from a New Mexico shelter. After getting out a few times the owner just did not want to be bothered with her. After getting to know Chloe we are confident that she is not an “escape artist” and it was more a case of owner inattention than a fault of Chloe. In any case she seems like a sweet older girl who is looking for a quieter home. She would prefer to be an only dog or at least in a household where other dogs did not bother her. We think she would be fine with cats. She is fine with kids that treat her fine. Being an older girl she does have some apparent arthritis and we are working to get her some pain relief. Further, she has experienced some “leakage” at night and we are trying proin to solve that problem. Finally, her renal values are a little high and she will be going on renal support food. All in all though she is a pleasant girl who people like when they meet her.
Kyla is what we believe to be, an Australian shepherd mix and not a collie or Sheltie mix. She weighs in at about 35 pounds. She has a docked tail. She cane to us from N.M. as an outdoor dog. Her owner could no longer keep her. She seems to be adjusting well to more of an inside life and with other dogs. We are currently unsure about cats (or other “critters”). We are getting to know her but the consensus is that she will become more self confident without the overprotecting behavior of her brother, with whom she came to rescue. She would probably do best in a quieter household and with another more social dog. She does seem housetrained and will use a dog door.
Loki is probably an Australian shepherd mix and not a collie or sheltie mix. Still, he is a happy guy who seems to be adjusting well to more of an inside life and with other dogs. We are currently unsure about cats (or other “critters”). We are getting to know him but we have determined that he likes to play with balls and will fetch and return them. So, we think he would do well with older kids. He does seem housetrained and will use a dog door. He is between a sheltie and collie sized dog at probably 40 pounds. He is about three and a half years old. He is already neutered and microchipped and we will be getting him current on vaccinations and checked out by a vet. He travels well in the car. Contact us for the latest information on this guy.
