Leila's Story...
SCR received a phone call asking to please help a "Collie" whose owner had died and was now with another rescue up in Ridgecrest. After pony expressing her down to Orange County it was obvious that she was an overweight Sheltie. Leila weighs 57# and needs to lose about 15#. She reportably snapped at a young child and thus needs an adult home or one with teenaged children or older. She has been medically neglected and allowed to be overweight for over a year. Leila has now had a thorough exam, bloodwork, and xrays as she had a slight limp in the past. Her xrays show some arthritis in her wrists and elbows thus being aggravated by her excess weight. She is on a strict diet. Our vet also recommends she stay on glucosamine/chondroitin for her joints, limit the use of stairs, and no jumping out of vehicles. Leila is not hyper nor is she a barker. She needs a home with a family who understands a Sheltie. Leila is now a contented housedog enjoying the company of several collies and she even plays with a 7 month old pup.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Leila, a Trabuco Canyon Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog for sale in Trabuco Canyon, or seeking a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog from a breeder in Trabuco Canyon.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Trabuco Canyon already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Trabuco Canyon breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog breeders who help with Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Trabuco Canyon paves the way for another one to be saved.
