WHITMAN(GORGEOUS PB SHELTIE!!'s Story...
WHITMAN***CONTACT MICHELLE mmay@kylabrescue.com WHITMAN'S STORY--HE DESERVED BETTER!!! WE RECEIVED AN URGENT CALL FROM THE DIRECTOR OF ONE OF THE HIGHEST KILL SHELTERS IN THE SOUTH LETTING US KNOW THAT WHITMAN'S FAMILY HAD JUST SURRENDERED WHITMAN TO HER SHELTER. HIS FAMILY BROUGHT WHITMAN TO THE SHELTER SIGNED THE NECESSARY PAPERS GIVING HIM UP, AND ON THE LINE IN THE PAPERWORK WHERE IT ASKED "WHY ARE YOU GIVING YOUR PET AWAY?" THERE WAS NOTHING WRITTEN, IT WAS BLANK!!!. THE DIRECTOR ASK WHITMAN'S FAMILY WHY THEY COULDN'T KEEP WHITMAN AND THE DAD'S REPLY "WE'RE MOVING WE DON'T HAVE TIME FOR HIM"!!! THE FAMILY TURNED AND WALKED OUT OF THE SHELTER NEVER SAYING A WORD TO WHITMAN OR GIVING HIM A PAT, THEY JUST LEFT!!!. THE DIRECTOR SAID WHITMAN STOOD AT THE SHELTER WINDOW WATCHING AS HIS FAMILY DROVE AWAY, HIS TAIL WAS WAGGING AS IF HE KNEW THEY WAS COMING BACK FOR HIM--THEY DIDN'T!!! IT IS UNIMAGINABLE TO US HOW SOMEONE COULD BE SO HEARTLESS AS TO JUST THROW A TRUE COMPANION LIKE WHITMAN AWAY, PUTTING HIM IN A HIGH KILL SHELTER IN A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION. THE SHELTER DIRECTOR LEARNED WHITMAN HAD BEEN A PART OF THIS FAMILY SINCE HE WAS A TINY, GORGEOUS, 6 WEEK OLD PUPPY. WHITMAN KEPT HIS END OF THE BARGAIN, HE LOVED HIS FAMILY WITH EVERY FIBER OF HIS BEING, HE DID NOTHING WRONG IT WAS HIS FAMILY WHO BROKE THEIR PROMISE!!!. "HE IS ONE OF THE SWEETEST MOST LOVING & GENTLE PUPS I HAVE SEEN. HE IS SO CONFUSED AND DOESN'T UNDERSTAND WHERE HE IS BUT MOST OF ALL WHY" CAN YOU HELP HIM? WAS THE DIRECTOR'S PLEA TO US. WITHOUT EVEN SEEING A PICTURE BUT JUST HEARING WHAT A WONDERFUL FELLOW WHITMAN WAS WE WERE ON OUR WAY WITHIN MINUTES TO HELP. WHEN WE FIRST SAW WHITMAN IN THE SHELTER WE SPOKE SOFTLY TO HIM, GAVE HIM A PAT, HE LIFTED HIS GORGEOUS HEAD, LOOKED AT US WITH EYES THAT WILL MELT YOUR HEART, HIS TAIL SLOWLY STARTED TO WAG, THEY DO KNOW WHEN YOU ARE THERE TO HELP!!!. WHITMAN LEFT THE HIGH KILL SHELTER THAT DAY, EYES SPARKLING, TAIL WAGGING AND WHEN OUR DIRECTOR PUT HIM IN HER CAR HE LICKED HER HAND, MAYBE THIS WAS HIS WAY OF THANKING HER FOR HELPING HIM. ***WHITMAN--A TRUE COMPANION--SO LOVING-A JOY" WHITMAN IS A BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL, 2-3 YR. OLD, PUREBRED SHELTIE. THE FIRST THING YOU WILL NOTICE IS WHAT A GORGEOUS FELLOW WHITMAN IS. HIS COAT IS A MYRIAD OF GORGEOUS COLORS. SPARKLING GLACIER WHITE ON HIS CHEST AND PAWS, IN FACT IT LOOKS LIKE WHITMAN TIP-TOED THROUGH SOME VERY WET WHITE PAINT. HIS COAT IS A RICH COGNAC AND WARM HONEY COLOR ACCENTED WITH HIGH GLOSS BLACK FRAMING HIS MANE. HIS COAT IS SO SOFT IT FEELS LIKE VELVET, YOU WILL WANT TO PAT AND RUB WHITMAN ALL DAY WHICH AS MUCH AS HE ADORES AFFECTION AND ATTENTION IS JUST FINE WITH HIM!!! HE LOVES TO BE PETTED, HE WILL TILT HIS HEAD BACK AND LOOK AT YOU WITH EYES THAT WILL MAKE YOU MELT, HIS EYES ARE LARGE, A WARM DARK CHESTNUT COLOR WITH A LOOK THAT SAYS "LOVE ME"--IT IS IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO. HE IS ALSO A BEAUTIFULLY BUILT PUP WITH A PROUD, GRACEFUL STANCE. WHEN WHITMAN WALKS, OR SHOULD WE SAY "PRANCE" THIS PUP IN MOTION IS STRIKING, HIS COAT ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE FEATHERS BLOWING IN THE BREEZE WHEN WHITMAN MOVES. ALSO BEING FULL GROWN AND ONLY WEIGHING 30 LBS. WHITMAN IS A DELIGHTFUL SIZE TO FIT IN ANY LIVING SITUATION. WHITMAN IS TRULY BEAUTIFUL BUT THIS PUP'S TRUE BEAUTY IS HIS HEART AND SPIRIT. JUST CALL HIS NAME AND THOSE GORGEOUS "LOVE ME" EYES WILL LIGHT UP, HE WILL WALK GENTLY OVER TO YOU, TURN THAT ADORABLE HEAD TO ONE SIDE AS IF HE'S SAYING "HI I'M WHITMAN NICE TO MEET YOU, WANNA PLAY?" HE IS A DEEPLY AFFECTIONATE PUP WHO WILL COME CLOSE, REST HIS HEAD IN YOUR LAP, AS LONG AS YOU WILL PAT OR RUB WHITMAN WILL STAY. HE IS A PUP WHO'S HAPPINESS IS JUST BEING WITH THOSE WHO LOVE HIM, HE IS THE ULTIMATE COMPANION. WHATEVER YOUR DAY CALLS FOR IS FINE WITH WHITMAN JUST TAKE HIM ALONG. IF IT WAS YOUR DAY TO RUN ERRANDS AROUND TOWN DON'T LET WHITMAN HEAR YOU JINGLE YOUR KEYS UNLESS YOU PLAN ON TAKING HIM ALONG, JUST OPEN THE CAR DOOR, IN WHITMAN WILL HOP, HE WILL FIND "HIS" SEAT, TURN AND GIVE YOU HIS "OK I'M READY LET'S GO" LOOK. WHITMAN WOULD ALSO ADORE AN EARLY MORNING OR LATE AFTERNOON WALK, HE IS IN TERRIFIC SHAPE A FELLOW WHO WILL MATCH YOU STEP FOR STEP. HE WILL PRANCE ALONG, HEAD HELD HIGH, HIS TAIL BLOWING IN THE BREEZE, INTERESTED IN ALL THE SIGHTS ALONG THE WAY. HE IS ALSO A VERY SOCIAL FELLOW AND ADORES ALL DOGS JUST A PLAY BUDDY FOR WHITMAN(HE'S EVEN FINE WITH CATS) THE NEXT THING YOU WILL NOTICE AFTER SPENDING ONLY A SHORT TIME WITH WHITMAN TRUE TO THE SHELTIE BREED THIS PUP IS SMART!!!. WHITMAN IS A PUP THAT LOVES TO LEARN BUT MOST IMPORTANT HE LOVES TO PLEASE THOSE HE LOVES, THE POTENTIAL FOR WHITMAN IS HUGE. SIMPLE THINGS TAKE ON NEW MEANING WITH A PUP LIKE WHITMAN AT YOUR SIDE.

WHITMAN IS GRATEFUL FOR ANY AND ALL ATTENTION BUT HE NEVER PESTERS OR DEMANDS IT. EVERYDAY IS A GIFT AND TIME WITH A PUP LIKE WHITMAN IS SO PRECIOUS. AT THE END OF THE DAY WHEN YOU AND WHITMAN HAVE SPENT THE DAY TAKING LONG WALKS, RUNNING ERRANDS, PLAYING IN HIS BACK YARD AND JUST ENJOYING EACH OTHER'S COMPANY WHEN WHITMAN COMES INTO HIS HOME HE CONTINUES TO SHINE. WHEN YOU SETTLE IN ON THE SOFA TO WATCH A MOVIE OR READ A BOOK, YOU WILL FIND WHITMAN CURLED UP AT YOUR FEET, THE LOOK ON HIS FACE IS ONE OF CONTENTMENT AND PEACE, HE IS WITH THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON IN THE WORLD TO HIM, YOU AND THAT'S ALL THAT MATTERS. WHEN IT'S TIME FOR BED WHITMAN WILL CURL UP ON HIS BED OR JUST STRETCH OUT ON A COOL FLOOR THE MAIN THING IS JUST AS LONG AS HE'S AS CLOSE TO YOU AS HE CAN BE.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

WHITMAN(GORGEOUS PB SHELTIE!!, a Winchester 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 Winchester, or seeking a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog from a breeder in Winchester.

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