Scotty's Story...
Scotty
Age: 6.5 yrs – DOB Dec. 29, 2001
Color: sable
Weight: 20 lbs
Height: 14”
Gender: neutered male

Scotty is cute as a button. He is 14” and 20 lbs. He was given up when his elderly owner had to move into a nursing home. Scotty is quite shy around people he does not know. He will likely never be a social butterfly but if you are patient and give him a chance to settle in on his own schedule, he opens up and becomes your shadow. Scotty grew up without any other animals in the household but he has done fine with the resident kitty and has enjoyed getting to know the other dogs in his foster home…although he can be a little rough when trying to play with them. Scotty would do best in an all adult household since he is afraid of children. He is looking for someone willing to help him learn about the world and work through his fears. Are you that person?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Scotty, a Indiana 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 Indiana, or seeking a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog from a breeder in Indiana.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Indiana 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 Indiana 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 Indiana paves the way for another one to be saved.
