Through no fault of their own, these two fun loving cuddle bugs, lost the only home they had ever known when their owner could no longer care for them. Belle, a female and Bailey, a male, are Sheltie siblings that have spent their whole lives together. Therefore, they would like to stay together in their new home. They are twelve years young, very well housetrained and total love bugs. They have had their teeth cleaned, some fatty tumors removed, and are now on diets. Belle has reached her weight loss goal, but Bailey still has a couple of pounds to lose. Both are on inexpensive thyroid medicine. Belle has Ataxia, resulting from being hit by a car several years ago. She doesn’t let that slow her down, but will periodically experience a loss of balance or stumbling. One might also notice that she slightly drags her back leg. She needs a home with no stairs. Bailey has an old ACL tear that was never repaired and he now has a slight limp. Surgery would not be beneficial since so much time has passed. He also needs a home with no stairs. Both love to go for short walks and they enjoy car rides. Won’t you consider opening your home to both of these friendly purebred Shelties . . . and double your pleasure . . . double the fun! We require a secure fenced yard, we do not accept "invisible" or electric fences. We will check your fence. All our dogs are spay/neutered, current on vaccinations, heartworm tested and on prevention, on Flea & Tick prevention and microchipped. Dentals are completed as needed. You may meet our dogs at Petco on W. 75th Street, just East of Metcalf in Overland Park, KS on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month from 10 to 2 and the 1st Sunday of the month from 11 to 3 or by Appointment. We DO NOT SHIP our dogs.

You may meet our Shelties at an adoption event or by appointment. Most of our Foster parents work, so appointments will be made at their convenience. If you have any questions or concerns, please give us a call (913) 384-0366, or send us an email. Please note, we do not ship our shelties so adopters from outside our area must drive to the KC to adopt one of our dogs.

Our Adoption Process...

We require a secure fenced yard, Our adoptions begin with the completion and submission of an Adoption Application. We do have an On Line Application available on our website: www.kcsheltierescue.org. Completion of an application does not commit you to an adoption, but does start the process. Be sure to fill the application in completely to avoid processing delays. Once we receive your application, it will be processed. We do process applications in the order in which they are received, but reserve the right to select the family that is the best suited for each particular dog's dispositions and needs. We will check your fence and your references, contact your vet reference/s and contact you. Please take time to walk your fence line. Check the height from the ground up in the lowest area, check for gaps at the ground, between posts that meet, posts at the house or buildings, gaps around the gates, and at the ground, broken, loose or missing pickets, and wood or brush piles against the fence. Most fence issues are easily dealt with, so please take the time to beef up areas of your fence you find that are not secure. This will help get your fence approved and save time.
