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 about four years old and weighs in at about 35 pounds. She has a docked tail. She came to us from N.M. as an outdoor dog. Her owner could no longer keep her. She has adjusted well to inside living. She is a pretty independent young lady and been somewhat inconsistent with other dogs. She has gotten along ok with the multiple other foster family dogs with only periodic “tiffs”. She can be fairly reactive on walks to dogs that she sees. We are currently unsure about cats (or other “critters”) although she had a recent foster experience where she was ok with a caged bird. She is fairly insecure and seeks reassurance and attention from the foster parents. She is very alert and protective. She is housetrained and uses a dog door. She is healthy, spayed, current on vaccinations, and microchipped.
Treble is an estimated six year old spayed female “collie” mix whose owner recently surrendered to our rescue. The owner was moving and unable or unwilling to bring Treble with them. Treble is a very sweet young girl who is soaking up attention at her foster home. She initially comes across as fairly insecure and not ready for direct gazes. But, she is already getting excited when her foster family returns from errands and is almost giddy. She is getting along very well with the several other foster dogs in the household and has been respectful of their “space”. We are unsure of how she is with cats but she was previously good with the owner’s ferrets which could indicate a low prey drive. We think she would be great with older kids. She reportedly gets pretty worked up and barky at strangers coming to the home and so would probably do best in a quieter household. We have not really observed the agitation other than her initial introduction at the owner’s home but it quite likely could take some more time for her to develop a home “possessiveness” and the barking tendency. She is very housetrained and quickly does her business to return inside. Treble rides well in the car. She appears healthy and is probably just a little overweight at 55 pounds. She will be current on shots prior to adoption and she is microchipped.
Pearl is a senior double dilute purebred Sheltie. We got her from a Shelter in California. She is blind and deaf but in spite of her condition, is a sweet, living girl. She is housebroken and gets around the house with minimal trouble (she feels her way around with an occassional bump. She is being treated for an ear infection and is on a special diet. She is schedules for a dental before adoption. She is spayed and up to date on her shots.
