Animal Success Stories

Most of the dogs whom we rescue find new forever homes where they live happily ever after. These are our success stories, and we'd like to share them with you. For a variety of reasons, we can't add a photo and story about every dog whom we've ever rescued and placed with a new family, but many of their stories are here.

Jackie O.

Jackie O. was a very small, 3 year old (when she came to us in early 2007) Sheltie-girl who had been required to live outside for all three years of her young life. She's an adorable tri-color Sheltie, became potty trained very quickly, and is bright, friendly, loves to play, LOVES to cuddle, and would also love to share any food you're eating (don't let her!). Her owner turned her over to Sheltie Rescue because they really had no interest in her (unbelievable, but true). Now, Jacki-O is discovering life indoors with people who love to cuddle back, talk to her, scratch her ears, and snuggle in bed, and she's loving it all! It took no time at all for a wonderful couple from northern California to contact us to ask if we'd consider letting them drive to Utah to meet Jackie. As it happened, we were going to be in Oregon very shortly after that, so we asked them to meet us in Oregon, loaded Jackie up into the car, and drive west. This lovely couple met us in Oregon as planned, feel instantly and deeply in love with Jackie — who returned the emotions completely — and adopted her on the spot. Sigh...another lovely success story!!

Jazzie
Jazzie

Jazzie came here with Duke. Initially, we felt it was important to keep the two of them together. After awhile, it looked like Jazzie could really benefit from a home where she could shine without Duke. Duke would be the first to play, fetch a ball, and the first to say hello to new people...kind of leaving Jazzie in the background. Jazzie is in a new home with Mom Eileen and a sister Sheltie. Jazzie and her sister are inseparable and love to play together and nap together. Mom Eileen has them both working on the treadmill after she's done with her own workout. Mom Eileen's devotion to her Sheltie kids is surpassed only by her love for them. Mom Eileen is even helping us out as a volunteer with Sheltie Rescue!
