Sky - I love attention!'s Story...
Sky is a WONDERFUL girl who ended up in a humane society and they contacted MNSR. She has a delightful personality, but had been moved from home to home, and we believe she has spent most of her life outside tied to a doghouse. She has learned indoor behavior quickly and loves to be petted. She is outgoing and not shy, which is great for a rescue Sheltie!

AGE: Estimated to be ~8-10 years, but acts much younger!
SIZE: She is at a good weight for her at 25 lbs.
TEMPERAMENT: Sky is so sweet! She wants a person to love her and she is so deserving of being loved. She tries so hard to please her person and will do anything you want if she can understand what you want.
FENCE: A secure wood, chain link or vinyl fence, with secure gates and direct access from the house is required. Sky loves to snoop and run and play in her fenced area.
DOGS: Sky does well with the other dogs in her foster home, but she doesn’t play with them. Maybe with time she will learn to play. Sky can go to a home with a canine companion or she can be the one & only for someone who has plenty of time to devote to her..
CATS: Sky ignores the cats in her foster home.
KIDS: Sky is wonderful with the teenagers in her foster home and does well with a visiting grandchild.
CRATE TRAINED: Sky is not comfortable using a crate but can be gated to a small area. She enjoys sleeping in a foam bed.
HOUSE-TRAINED: Sky is house-trained when let out on a schedule.
OBEDIENCE TRAINING: Sky hasn’t had any formal training. Her foster family has been working on sit and coming when she is called. She is learning to think and is beginning to make progress with both commands.
LEASH MANNERS: Sky loves leisurely walks on a leash.
CAR RIDES: Sky rides quietly in her crate in the car.
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Sky is calm in the house.
BARKING: Sky will bark when she goes outside and she barks when she wants to come in. She responds well to “no bark”. She is a smart girl and has learned rather quickly that barking isn’t appreciated at her foster home.
HEALTH ISSUES: No known health issues. Sky recently had a dental.

Sky is such a sweetie. She deserves someone to love and someone to love her. She truly is a great dog! She just needs someone who can continue to take her out regularly to help her be successful. Apply for this sweet girl! You will fall in love.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sky - I love attention!, a Circle Pines Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog for sale in Circle Pines, or seeking a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog from a breeder in Circle Pines.

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