Bella's Story...

Hello Everyone!

It's Brogan and Bella....we have heard there are many people (in many provinces in Canada) that have been following our rescue story - a rescue from a dump in Northern Alberta.

We wanted to give you a little update...

Our Gaurdian Angel was so worried about us (especially little Bella) out at the dump that she brought us in without lining up a Foster home first. We were so happy to be brought up in for the dump...we couldn't stop kissing her! It's a really scrary place out at the dump as it is quite remote and there lots of coyotes that hang around the dump looking for food - plus it's winter here in Alberta! When she picked us up that night we were so relieved because at the far side of the dump were two brave coyotes that stood watching while she helped us into her car. She couldn't bring us into her house because she already has her own dogs and we all slept out in the car together!

We have already gotten vet checked and fixed at the Parkland Vet Clinic in Spruce Grove, Alberta! So we've had a busy couple days and just want to rest for a couple of days now. In addition, we got moved to a temporary Foster Home last night and although we'd LOVE to stay here we probably won't be able to because this Foster Mommy already has 4 dogs.

Both of us LOVE all the dogs in the Foster Home and although we just got fixed we really just wanted to play with them - especially Brogan. Brogan is absolutely in love with the Foster Home - because it is all girl dogs (all fixed)!

We are pretty much house-trained already! And we will work on crate-training and some basic obdience too. However, we are sending this email out because we would love to find a forever home that would perhaps consider the both of us together. We do know that this only happens rarely but we're not both large dogs (Brogan is 60 lbs - with lots of fur; Bella is 26 lbs and should be about 30lbs). If you adopted both of us together we would get to stay together and we would have a playmate to play with while you were at work!

These two dogs are very very bonded. Brogan protected Bella in the dump; Bella would hide in the shack in the dump until she knew Brogan was happy and comfortbale greeting me....she did not even show her face the first 3 days at the dump). After waking up from there spay and neuter the techs tried to put them in seperate kennels but they got so upset that they ended up putting back together and they totally calmed down again.

Brogan: Great Pyr x Husky x Lab cross. 60 lbs. Brogan has rear dew claws so we think there is some Great Pyr in him. We are not looking for a purely outdoor home for this dog. He is a big lovable dog, well mannered, well socialized. He will bond to his adoptive family and become the most loyal family member. He has spent only about 30 mintues with his rescuer over the past 1.5 weeks and he is aboslutely loyal to her. Quiet dog that would love doing agility and going to the off-leash dog park. Requires a secure 6 ft tall fenced backyard.

Age: 1 year old
Sex: Male
Weight: 60 pounds (and furry)

Bella: Shelite cross. 26 lbs. Is currently very underweight. Bella would love a home with her big brother. A really pretty sweetheart of a dog. She sat in the front seat of the car and insisted on giving me kisses on my face on all the drives from the dump, to the vet, and to the foster home.

Age: 1 year old
Sex: Female
Weight: 26 pounds

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bella, a Spruce Grove Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Collie for sale in Spruce Grove, or seeking a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Collie dog from a breeder in Spruce Grove.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Spruce Grove 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 Spruce Grove 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/Collie breeders who help with Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog/Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Spruce Grove paves the way for another one to be saved.
