Bridget's Info...

Bridget's Story...
Although Bridget is not a Sheltie, (we think she is a Shepherd mix), her NVSR friends are helping to find her forever home. She is a dog who loves people and making new friends - human or canine. Bridget has a big bark when she sees strangers, but she is only asking them to come pet her! Her foster family says she is very smart, is anxious to please, and enjoys practicing “sit”, “wait”, “crate”, and “heel.” She can fetch, too! Bridget loves to learn new things and play games with people. She enjoys playing with another dog her size, but because she can be a little rough when she gets excited, small dogs and cats aren’t the right playmates for her. Young children might be afraid of her because she is strong and might knock them down accidentally.

Running around a big fenced yard is one of Bridget's favorite things as long as people are with her. Her foster mom says she is a “velcro dog.” But she doesn’t have to be playing every minute. She is quiet and will rest at her humans’ feet when it's time to settle down. She sleeps in a big crate and is quiet as a mouse all night long. This friendly girl loves to go for rides in the car as well as walks wearing her harness. She never chews anything she is not supposed to, but she loves her Kong Bone, especially with peanut butter stuffed inside.

Bridget has a good appetite but she tends to eat too fast, so she has a special slow-eat bowl so she won’t gobble her food. As long as Bridget doesn’t have to go too long without a potty break, you can count on her reliable housetraining. She's been brought up to date on all her vaccines and is ready for her new home.

As much as her foster family loves her and she loves them, Bridget wants a person of her own who will be around a lot. Could that be you?

Bridget is ... 5 years old, 40 pounds, and 19 inches tall. Her adoption fee is $250. Please see our website (NVSR.org) for information about applying for adoption BEFORE you write to us.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Charlottesville 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.
