Born October 17th, 2009
Appear to be sheltie mixes

The girls weigh in at just twenty pounds and are not expected to get much bigger if any bigger at all.

Both girls are lovely with longer wavy hair.  They both come joyfully when called and stay right with us for walks in the woods. 

Shivers has longer curlier hair and she is all black.  Scooter has a white tip on the end of her tail.  They bothsheltie_girl_face_black_june_15_2010sm have cute little faces with those cute noses and tipped ears.   They came with these names and I meant to rename them but just couldn’t seem to come up with any so it is Scooter and Shivers.  And they do know the names but names can be changed.

The girls were owner surrendered to a local animal shelter.  The reason stated was that the owner could no longer care for them.  We actually got them the day they were surrendered!  It was just happenstance that we arrived to pick up some other animals when these two had arrived and the staff sheltie_girl_run_june_15_2010asked us if we would take them.  Of course we would….  These two girls are keepers!

You can see how joyous they are in this photo.  They love to run and play, explore and find neat things.

They can be adopted out alone or as a pair.  They would make an easy pair to adopt because they respond so well to the spoken word and are eager to please.

They are pretty much housetrained but need to be watched.  They share a crate at night time.

If a cat runs they will chase it but not as prey, more as, hey, sheltie_girl2a_june_15_2010what is that moving?  And then they sniff and lick and find something else to be entertained by. 

I sometimes jokingly call them pygmy goats because their heads are small and their bodies round – the roundness is from the hair and give them a bit of a silly look.

The girls have sweet natured temperaments.

They would do well with most families.  Shivers, the black one is a bit timid but not much.  Scooter is very outgoing.

They do well with other dogs and with the cats but they do want to eat the birds and will paw at the cage….. not sure how they will do with pocket pets.
