I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
My name is Reilyl. My DOB is 4/12/03. I survived four years as a breeding dog. Then the softies at Sheltie Rescue came and took me out of there. I’m not complaining as they have treated me well. I lost part of my lip when I had a disagreement with another critter at the breeders. The folks in my foster home take really good care of me. When I got to my foster home, I couldn’t keep my food down and I had “the runs”. ICH! We found out I had giradia, an intestinal parasite that makes you feel crummy. I didn’t complain. I think my foster parents knew something was up when they had to clean my crate every day. Oh, Lordy! I am over that now and I like sleeping in a clean bed. That is the reason why I have learned to go outside to Potty!. I also like to be petted although I make it hard for folks to do it. I have an image to maintain after all! I have done a pretty good job up to now of keeping everybody at a safe distance. Note from Reily’s foster dad. Reily needs a special home where the folks will understand they can only have what Reily is willing to give. With a lot of time and tenderness, I think Reily will be a great pet. He may never lick your face but even this tough little guy has a tender side. Could you be the one for him?

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.
We require a secure fenced yard,
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.
