Sheldon's Story...
Pics coming very soon. Sheldon is such a smart and happy boy, it's so far hard to understand why his people did not come get him from the shelter we found him in. We believe we have it spot on when we say Sheldon is a Collie/Sheltie mix boy due to his size, personality, coloring, and smarts. He is between three and five years old.

Sheldon is so very very good. He knows and follows basic verbal commands very well, and who knows? He probably knows even more than we have tested him with. He LOVES to go on walks and lights up when he sees the leash come out. And he especially loves being with his people.

Sheldon gets along well with dogs and is of "average" temperament - he is not dominant but does not tolerate being dominated. He does very well in the car and in a crate. Being on the smart side he is a little cautious of new things though.

If you are interested in meeting and potentially adopting Sheldon, please go to the Adoption Process page on our website - throwmeabonedogrescue.org. There you can read about our requirements and find the link for the adoption application.

All potential adopters are expected to complete an application and provide pictures of their yard, patio, and/or balcony making sure we can see the fence line and/or railing. The application can be completed and submitted from our website - throwmeabonedogrescue.org - and is found under Resources. Applications will be reviewed for approval before setting an appointment to come meet and possibly adopt the dog of interest. In addition, those who live in a rental property are expected to provide proof that they are allowed to have a dog where they live.

Each of our rescued dogs has been de-wormed if necessary, de-flea'd (with topical treatment if old enough, and by medicated bath if too young), spayed/neutered, microchipped, is up to date on shots, and has been fully examined by a veterinarian. In addition, each adopted dog comes with a starter baggie of the food it has been eating, a few treats for training purposes, a rawhide chew, a lead and collar, and a folder containing pertinent records.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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