You'll make out like a "Bandit" if you adopt me and bring me into your family. Just look at my photo shoot. I'm such a handsome and well behaved man. My dad died a while back, and my lifetime momma is now sick, so the nice people at ITV are searching for a new forever home for me!! Yes, I know I am a very desirable herding breed. I'm a Sheltie! Shucks, my name has been Bandit for 9 years-ever since my momma brought me home as a little puppy. I think I'm great, and my foster mom agrees. I'm pretty self sufficient and really not a bother. I will be a great companion dog to the person who wants to enjoy a quiet life during my senior years. Not trying to brag, but I'm also a smart guy- I know sit and stay. I use to only eat people food, so don't laugh that I weigh 59 pounds. I am now eating healthy dog food, and have learned to let my foster mom lead me on a leash. I would love to take leisurely walks with my new human and enjoy the outdoors while bonding AND losing my "hotdog" belly. Hey- hotdogs are All-American, and I just couldn't say no..ha ha. I'm learning not to bark at people or be scared during leash walks. I really miss my human, and I am sad, but I understand things change. I am used to being an only dog. I'm totally ok with a meet and greet, but having a sibling seems a little bit scary. I just hope you will be patient with me. I've gone through so many changes recently, but my foster mom says I've been a good boy. I'm know to do my business outside through a doggie door. I'm a gentleman and don't soil inside. However, if you don't have a doggie door, I need your encouragement and leadership to learn your rules. I'm ready to earn treats when you teach me new tricks. I hate to toot my own horn, but I am an amazing specimen. Look at my coat and how dapper I look! My momma took me to this nice place where I had regular spa days and I will need to continue that to keep my beautiful coat healthy. That may sound a bit "sissy" but I enjoy being pampered and staying so handsome. Add my sweet disposition to my great looks, and you will want to love me forever! Since I am a bit older, I would like a quieter lifestyle. I enjoy watching TV. I am flexible though, so if we like different shows, I will compromise. I enjoy mature children who have been taught to respect my species. Those little squirmers and screamers scare me a bit. I also love stuffed animals. Of course, I also have all my medical papers in order. I'm neutered (I want to help control the pet population), vaccinated, microchipped (I don't want to get home if I'm lost) and heartworm tested. My previous human took really good care of me, and my foster mom has been amazing. It's time for me to start my future now. I'm anxious to read the stack of applications and choose my best match at ITVRescue.org. I appreciate ITV and my foster mom for taking in a distinguished fella like myself. I'm ready to meet you...IF I sound like a perfect match AND if you promise to love me forever. When you send in the application, make certain you type in BANDIT. I saw many amazing dogs at ITV, so be certain you ask for me!!!! I'm Bandit, the smart and handsome Sheltie. Lets get this adoption process rolling!

About It Takes A Village Canine Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

It Takes A Village Canine Rescue, Inc. is a non-kill 501(c)(3) dog rescue dedicated to doing what it takes to find loving homes for stray, abandoned, and surrendered animals, and to keep these animals safe and free from further suffering. Our mission is "To work as one in helping homeless dogs irrespective of breed, location or circumstance." By working with committed volunteers, foster homes, local veterinarians, animal control, trainers, and boarding facilities, we are able to rescue countless animals every year and provide them with loving temporary care as we work to find them well-matched forever homes. Although we do not discriminate based on breed, size or color, we have a particular interest in bully breeds, black dogs and other hard-to-place dogs.

We are generally at Petsmart on Burkhart every Sunday and have adoption events at various locations throughout the year.

Our Adoption Process...

We require all adopters to complete an application and pay an adoption fee. Adoption fees vary, but are usually $150 to $175. We may do a vet reference check and/or home visit.
