Best Sheltie ever needs a home in GA

Post by John Ubel » Wed, 26 Jul 2000 04:00:00



The best Sheltie ever to be placed on this earth is in need of a good home.
She is about 8 and was a rescue of sorts that came from a breeder that was
going under 6 years ago. She is very sweet, has always been 100% house
broken and is not a barker. She knows basic commands sit, stay, come, and
roll over. She is an inside dog only!!!!!! She has always yard trained, and
does not leave the yard, however she finds the outdoors a place she only
like to visit for a short time. She is leash trained and loves to go for
walks with you. She was in terrible shape when we adopted her and she had
severe skin problems due to neglect. She would eat her fur. We shaved her as
to help heal her skin. It worked, never has she had a problem. We have kept
the Lion cut, because we found that she is highly allergic to fleas and
associates long hair with biting her fur. She is small and has the most
perfect sable and white markings, a full white, white collar and she is
gorgeous with the lion cut. You must keep her shaved as this is how she is
comfortable. You must also be at home and not gone all day every day, as
this is what she prefers. She like kids, but her mom wants to make sure she
is never harmed, even by accident. So no kids under 16. She has never been
hit or yelled at, if you are one, she is not for you. In fact, in the 6
years we have had her, she has never done anything wrong. She is gold and we
want to place here in the very best home. She needs a corn free diet and a
pick of the litter mom and dad, are you the one?

What possible reason can you rationalize to want to rehome this dog?

Dear Toni,
We have a ***age son who has Asperger's in the autism spectrum and he is
not doing great at this time. The absurdity of living with Asperger's and
the fact that our daily lives are to be mild,  crazy at this point in time
has left us with wanting to place her in a quiet stable environment Toni

I'm sure that if you would care to share the most pressing dog problems, we
could find solutions for you.
We've all worked through various things at one time or another, and there
are always several options.

If you are determined to give up this dog, please contact the Sheltie breed
rescue folks. They have the resources necessary to check homes and make sure
that the very best is done by this dog.

From what she said, the dog doesn't really have too much in the way of
problems. Having a bit of experience with autism, I can sympathise. If
she feels it is best to rehome the dog, there may not be any easy
solutions to her problems - a household with an autistic child can be a
frightening place for a dog as sensitive as a Sheltie.

I've been doing e-mail with her.
She is really looking for a good solution, and now has some Sheltie contact
people.

You're a peach, Toni!
I'm sad to say that even though this dog might be the best Sheltie ever, she
doesn't sound like a highly adoptable one. :( Most folk looking to adopt
Shelties want a young, "little Lassie" and the dogs over 5 or with health
problems don't get much attention. If the rescue groups out there are
anything like the sheltie rescue here, they will take her, but she'll
probably spend a lot of time in foster homes, which isn't exactly the ideal
situation for a sheltie either.

Possibly food allergies, with the special diet, and maybe skin trouble
(with the request to keep her shaved -- otherwise, please consider a home
that doesn't shave but does know how to keep a Sheltie well groomed.
There's a trick to it).  Mainly, the age will work against this dog;
people looking for dogs most often want puppies, or at most old
puppies/young ***s.

I'm guessing this is a really spooky form of autism, from a dog's
viewpoint?  I'm glad they're in touch with some Sheltie people on this.
All I can say is, best wishes, and I hope they post here again if there's
a chance of keeping the dog and they need to talk accomodation.
