Sandy is an approximately 10 year old sable merle female Sheltie that is currently available for adoption through the Arizona Sheltie Rescue.
She was given up with another sheltie by her owner as they were not doing well with another dog in the household nor the younger granddaughter. Sandy is a pleasant and low-key girl who may be slowing down but still shows a spark and particularly around dinnertime when she can literally hop a little on her rear legs. She has been well-behaved at her foster family and “low-maintenance”. She does not bark much. We do know that she has shown problems with some dogs and cats. As she really does not seem to want to interact to any extent with other dogs we think she would do best as an only dog where she can get the undivided attention and where there are no cats. This periodic behavior with other dogs seems surprising given her general demeanor. Since she is getting older we think she would also enjoy a quieter type household without regular small children. Sandy has been well house-trained. Aside from slowing down, which could reflect the onset of some arthritis and a fatty tumor on her chest Sandy actually seems in good shape. She has been microchipped, was previously spayed, and is current on her vaccinations.
