ADOPTED 06-25-2012

Update 5-30-2012

Quincy is such a lovable little mush. her foster mom had a little girl about 7 years old come to her house the other day. She was down on the floor with Quincy and he was kissing her and all over her. This little boy wants to be where the action is and loves to be hugged and held.

Her foster mom wanted us to add a couple little things that Quincy does. When the water bowl is empty he will pick it up, bring it out on the deck and sit with it like "Do you get it yet, I need water"!.He will also repeatedly take the same toys out of the toy bucket if I put them away very smart!!

Original bio

Quincy is the cutest little pup with white blaze and awesome colors, not to mention she has cute rings around her eyes, like little glasses. I love being with people, following them around even if they walk away from me and getting right in their lap for some good pets and kisses. My foster mom says I have great manners, I don't jump on the furniture and I am potty trained. I enjoy playing with and being around other dogs, right now I have lots of foster brothers and sisters to play with plus all the toys are great, especially the squeakers. I'm a little nervous about car rides but with time I'm sure I'll come to enjoy them, even more if someone will sit with me in the backseat, I would love that because I really like being with my people.

I am a Sheltie mix, the sheltie would explain the lovely fluffy fur I have and the weenie dog from the long torso and short legs. Because of that they think I'm going to be a smaller dog maybe 15-20 pounds but they can't be sure until I get older and am done growing. I enjoy bully sticks and deer antlers to chew on and healthy treats like solid gold soft treats or wellness soft treats, those are great for training. I am working on my sit and down and soon I'm going to be pro at them and begin harder stuff like stay, I'm a smart boy who wants to please his people. I'll be sure to have my foster mom update everyone on my progress. I am looking for a forever home so if you’re interested in a handsome, well mannered boy like me who gives kisses please fill out an adoption application and make me part of your family.

About Our Rescue

These dogs deserve all of our attention, and in Rescue Dog Village, we are committed to our adopters and our dogs equally. We offer full disclosure and hope to make the best matches possible. Please know our adoption fees never cover our expenses. We rely on the generosity of our adopters and supporters to help us help the dogs.

Our rescue is ONLY in the business of offering FULL DISCLOSURE to adopters, and expects and hopes to engage your questions and concerns fully. We owe it to the dogs we rescue and all the wonderful families/adopters who might consider welcoming our charges into their hearts and home. Our dogs are waiting for that ideal forever home where they will be cherished as deserving family members. It's sad these second chances are even necessary for these dogs, but we are committed to them and will devote the time and energy to their rehoming, and not just MOVE them to save more dogs. We diligently and responsibly seek good matches as we don't want to re-home the dog again. These animals have already endured more than they should have, and through no fault of their own. It behooves us to be honest and forthright, and we appreciate the same in return from applicants. It's that winning combination of reciprocal trust and respect that allows for successful placements to be made. Happy adopters translate to happy dogs, and that's our goal!

Our rescue volunteers will be more than honored to be in touch with you directly and promptly, after receiving your application and conducting a mandatory a veterinarian check. If you have never owned a dog before, please submit your application regardless, and we will be in touch with you as soon as possible. TAKE NOTE YOU SHOULD CHECK YOUR SPAM AS SOME RESPONSES FROM US WIND UP THERE WE'VE DISCOVERED. Also, take care to contact your veterinarian to let them know a member of rescue will be inquiring about your pet history!

Thank you for respecting that we all donate our time to saving these animals, and understand we value your philanthropic and compassionate desire to help be part of the rescue team. That said, you'll understand why we are committed to the well-being of our charges and consider this veterinarian check mandatory. If you are a first-time dog owner, we will work with you every step of the way! ADVOCACY AND EDUCATION ARE AS MUCH A PART OF RESPONSIBLE RESCUE AS ADOPTION! And it takes a RESCUE VILLAGE to help the most dogs possible in a thorough manner to ensure success on all fronts, and then some! It is an awful feeling to fail a dog, and we can't continue rescue if we don't do everything we can to ensure good matches for the dogs and tender families who might adopt them. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING.

Although we are an extremely small rescue group, we understand and respect your family's eagerness to be in touch and learn as much as you can about the dogs you are considering adopting. Our very experienced and devoted trainer will be happy to share all aspects of OUR RESCUE DOGS to determine compatibility once you've submitted your application, and another of our volunteers will explain the whole process of our rescue and answer any questions you might have as well

If you have the time and love to offer this extremely bright dog who can make you laugh for hours at his antics, PLEASE APPLY TO BE CONSIDERED FOR A RESCUE DOG VILLAGE DOG AND GIVE ONE A HOME. Our dogs deserve all that a committed family can offer. Make no mistake about it, this is one spectacular dog!

Please contact and we will be happy to return your correspondence, but please submit the application now so we can have that information as a starting base for our dialogue.


ALL interested adopters MUST complete an application; agree to a vet reference check, phone interview and home visit. ALL family members MUST be in attendance for home visits - no exceptions. This helps us get to know everyone in the family so that we can help find the right dog for you.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Quincy, a Preston Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog for sale in Preston, or seeking a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog puppy from a breeder in Preston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Preston 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 Preston 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 Preston paves the way for another one to be saved.
