Silvo's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Silvo's Story...
Male, 2.5 years old, Pomeranian/Sheltie, 15 lbs and about 18 inches tall. He is smaller than he looks in the photo.
What the foster has to say:
Silvo is a great dog. No problems with him yet. He loves his walks and is very good off leash. Always comes when he is called. He slept on the bed with us all last night. He’s afraid of the cats (which is just fine), and indifferent to Milo and Rosie (our dogs). He does have the occasional whine/cry which I assume is because he misses Christian. Overall though he is a very sweet dog.

What the owner had to say:
Silvo has quite the personality. He is great off leash and likes to snuggle. Sometimes he thinks he's bigger than he is. He has always lived with Christian and they love each other. Please consider adopting both together.
I have a family emergency and have to move back to Costa Rica. I know the life for a dog will not be good there so I have made the painful decision to rehome them. Please give him a wonderful home as he is a wonderful dog.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Calgary 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 Calgary 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/Pomeranian breeders who help with Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Pomeranian rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Calgary paves the way for another one to be saved.
