Chase - Chase is a sable and white sheltie that recently came to us with the request to find him a home that better suits his herding qualities and energy level. He is 18 months old (born June 2014), neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm negative, and on heartworm preventive. Chase is 17 inches tall and weighs about 30 pounds. He is housetrained and loves to play with other dogs. He loves to snuggle with his humans and gets along well with other dogs. Chase has a strong herding instinct and would not do well with small children or cats.

Taffy 2 - Taffy came to us from Universal City, she was a stray and no one came to reclaim her. when she was picked up by the shelter her coat was tangled and dirty and she had lots of fleas and ticks. The shelter had her groomed and updated her vaccinations. When we picked her up she was frightened by all of the changes, the noise of the kennel situation and all of the strange people. She has now settled into her foster home and gets along great with the other dogs. Taffy is about 12 inches tall, weighs about 15 pounds and is spayed. She is heartworm negative and is on heartworm preventive. Taffy is probably 8 or 9 years old and is working on her house training. She is leash trained and a very gentle little girl. She gets along well with other dogs and likes to snuggle. Taffy is a bit overweight but is working on weight loss with good food, exercise and the green bean diet. She loves to play with toys and tries to be first in line to greet her foster mom. She is a happy girl.

Adopted March 2016.


Lil Bit - Lil Bit is a tiny sheltie that was recently surrendered to us because her home life was stressing her. She is about 3 or 4 years old. Stands about 12 inches tall and weighs 13 pounds. Lil Bit is spayed and up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm negative and on heartworm preventive. Lil Bit is very nervous in new situations and quite shy. It takes her a while to warm up to new people. She loves to take walks and enjoys meeting other walkers, she does well on a leash. Lil bit is not house trained but is working on better house manners. She gets along well with other dogs, and the size of the other dog does not matter to her.

Darby - Darby was in a rescue north of Austin but after being there for several months he was not getting attention. They agreed to let us take him and do what we do…find him a new home. Darby is 4 to 5 years old, up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm negative, and on heartworm preventive. He is about 16 inches tall and weighs 41 pounds. He has a wonderful, happy, loving personality. He loves to run and play, is good on a leash and loves to take walks. He is getting a refresher course on house training and learning quickly. Darby is a high energy dog that loves to run and play with the other dogs but he also has a quiet side where he will sit by your side for pets and skritches.

Adopted February 2016.


Sabrina - Sabrina Sabrina is a 3 year old border collie sheltie mix. She came to us from the San Antonio shelter where she had been confiscated for neglect. She is about 15 inches tall and weighs around 22 pounds. Sabrina is spayed, up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm negative and on heartworm preventive. Sabrina is very frightened right now but as you can tell from the look in her eyes, she has a lot of love to give and she really wants to trust. More as we get to know this sweet girl.

UPDATE: Sabrina has turned into a bouncy, energetic little girl that loves to play with balls. She appears to be house trained and loves snuggles and being close to her human. She is a little joy to have around.

Joani Joani and ChaChi are a bonded pair. They were found wandering around Lakeway and picked up by animal control. After they were held for 3 days, the animal control officer contacted us to help them find a good home. Austin Sheltie Rescue picked them up and took them to the vet. After testing we found that both shelties are in need of thyroid supplements. Joani is now up to date on all of her vaccinations, is heartworm negative and on heartworm preventive. She stands about 13 inches tall and weighs 30 pounds. Since she is on the inexpensive thyroid supplements along with good food and exercise, her weight should come down to a reasonable level. Joani is about 8 years old, house trained and very friendly. She walks well on a leash and would prefer a home with her buddy, ChaChi
