Zheke's Story...
Taffy & Zheke are the most adorable bonded pair of Shelties. They are well mannered, lively, spry and have the cutest play sessions. They are housetrained, obedience trained, spayed and neutered.

Taffy’s birthdate is June 3rd, 2004 so she is 10 years old. She is a sable & white, small, gorgeous girl. She loves to snuggle, lick and preen. She will lay at your feet but it is so much more fun when she snuggles on the couch.

Zheke’s birthdate is June 15th, 2008 so he is 6 years old. He is a small, tricolor sheltie, we thought he was a bi black until we noticed a small line of brown on his muzzle. He loves to play and get the pack going in daily running fits. He nudges your hand for attention and that makes Taffy jump in for love and pets too. Both are great on walks, like to go places and are good plate lickers. They make it really hard to go to work because they are so cute and fun to be with.

Taffy & Zheke are in San Diego County, CA. Adopters from Southern California are especially encouraged to apply. To sponsor them, please make a donation on our website or email us for more information.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zheke, a San Diego 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 San Diego, or seeking a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog from a breeder in San Diego.

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