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.

About Northern Virginia Sheltie Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Northern Virginia Sheltie Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)(3), all volunteer organization established to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome Shelties. Most of these Shelties have been relinquished to NVSR by owners unable to keep them. Others are found in shelters because they are strays or have been abandoned. All our Shelties are fostered in NVSR volunteers' homes (we do not have a shelter), and any medical needs are addressed promptly and fully, including spay or neuter. They are then eligible to be adopted to carefully chosen homes, where they will be loved, well cared for, and protected. For the remainder of the adopted dogs' lives, NVSR stays in touch with the adoptive families. NVSR is a non-profit organization funded solely by donations.

Our Adoption Process...

Potential adopters need to complete an adoption application which is available on our website at http://www.nvsr.org or can be obtained by calling our phone number. The application is essential for NVSR to find the right Sheltie for a particular family and lifestyle. After the initial application is completed and reviewed, and a home visit is completed, NVSR will contact the potential adopter about Shelties that might be currently available which fit their profile.
