Ivy's Story...
Ivy is a precious 12 year old, sable and white, spayed female Sheltie. She loves to hang out with the family and enjoys reading, listening to music and even washing dishes. Her doctor says that she needs to slowly lose about 15 lbs. Lucky for Ivy she loves healthy food and is enjoying being able to walk short distances again. Her hearing was damaged by chronic ear infections that have recently healed with simple ear drops. If you need a happy and cheerful companion, Ivy is an amazing and supportive best friend.

Ivy is in San Diego County. Adopters from Southern California are especially encouraged to apply. To sponsor her, please make a donation on our website or email us for more information. To apply for adoption, please fill out our online application so the appropriate volunteer can get back to you.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ivy, a San Diego 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 San Diego, or seeking a Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog from a breeder in San Diego.

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