Pilot - Pilot is a sheltie mix that was reportedly thrown out of a car, he was quickly scooped up by a witness and taken to the Austin Animal Shelter. He is probably around 8 years old, he is now current on all vaccinations, heartworm negative, on heartworm preventive, neutered and has had a recent dental. He stand about 14 inches tall and weighs around 19 pounds. he has a bad haircut but it will soon grow out and be so handsome. Pilot is a sweet little fellow that is getting a refresher course in house training. Pilot enjoys the company of other dogs but we aren’t sure about cats. He is currently looking for a forever home and would prefer one without small children.

   
   

Wolfie - Wolfie is an owner surrender due to the health status of members of the family. He is 14 years old, neutered, and an adorable, laid back blue merle sheltie. Wolfie is about 14 inches tall and weighs 25 pounds. He is up to date on all of his vaccination, heartworm negative and on heartworm preventive. He is house trained and leash trained. He gets along well with the resident dogs at his foster home and enjoys being petted and brushed.

   
   

Macha - Macha is a spayed Sheltie mix, probably a bit of Husky but without the bark and talkativeness Huskies are known for. She is 10 years old, about 17 inches tall and weighs 37 pounds. Macha is up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm negative and on heartworm preventive. She is house trained and leash trained but not real thrilled with crates. She gets along well with the current resident dogs and loves to be petted and cuddled. Macha has some skin issues that may be caused by thyroid problems so we have her on thyroid medication. The hair is growing back in the shaded areas on her back but there are no hair follicles in the very light areas. She is anemic but it is like her body has learned to deal with it, she doesn’t appear to be making red blood cells. But even tho she is anemic she has energy, loves to encourage the other dogs to play and walks proudly around the yard. Macha has a tumor on her throat that appears to be slow growing, it does not get in the way of anything, she eats and rinks just fine. Her bark is a bit muffled but it is seldom that she barks. Macha is spunky, ever so sweet and gets along great with others. She is a love bug.

   
   

Praline - Praline came to us from NE Texas, a group of folks worked together to get her out of a neglectful home. Praline is about 8 years old up to date on all vaccinations, spayed but sadly is heartworm positive and will have to go thru treatment. She will not be ready for adoption until the end of June. Praline is about 14 inches tall and is a bit underweight at 16 pounds.

   
   

Adopton Pending! Kota - Kota is a 10 month old ball of energy, he can jump straight up about 36 inches, and he loves to run. Kota weighs 15 pounds and stands around 15 inches. He is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative and on heartworm preventive. We will be looking for a home that will keep him busy, an active home where he can be trained to be his best. He enjoys walking on lead and he gets along well with other dogs. Kota also knows a couple of commands and is very eager to learn more.

   
   

Patsy - Patsy was a stray in nearby Live Oak. She is about 10 years old, up to date on all vaccinations, spayed, heartworm negative and on heartworm preventive. She weighs 18 pounds and stands about 14 inches tall. She has a perky attitude and gets along well with everyone in her foster home. Patsy has a grade 4 heart murmur and currently has an appointment with a cardiologists for further testing. Patsy also has no sight in one eye, it appears she suffered an injury some time ago to the eyeball and a cataract has formed preventing any sight from that eye. None of this slows her down, she is a happy bouncy little girl that is house trained and crate trained.

   
   

Mack - Mack is an owner surrender due to owners health situation. He is a very senior sheltie, about 15 years old, with a sweet attitude. He is about 15 inches tall and weighs 27 pounds. He is neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm negative and on heartworm preventive. Mack is very friendly, gets along well with other digs, and likes to be close to his people. Mack is having some housetraining issues, we’ve done a variety of tests and there are no health reasons. It is probably due to his advancing age but belly bands are his savior.

   
   

Gumbeaux - Gumbeaux is a papillon or sheltie chi mix that was found as a stray in Killeen. The shelter turned him over to us when they could not find his owners. Gumbeaux is about 7 years old, He is about 13 inches tall and weighs 15 pounds. Gumbeaux is up to date on vaccinations, neutered, heartworm negative and on heartworm preventive. He is working on his house training and learning new manners. Gumbeaux gets along with other dogs and cats but does not do well with small children, they move too fast.

   
   

Robin - Robin also came from a North Texas Shelter and was shaved down before coming into rescue. His coat is growing in and it is looking great. He is between 6 and 8 years old and is a good weight. He is neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm negative and on heartworm preventive. He seems to be a mellow fellow and he walks well on a leash. Robin is dealing with some arthritis which sometimes makes it difficult for him to get and start moving. He is currently on medication which is helping him move easier. Robin is housetrained, loves cuddles and tons of attention, particularly petting.

   
   

Lucas – Lucas is a sheltie mix that came in to the local shelter as a stray. He was found wandering around the lake and had a terrible case of sarcoptic mange. He has been thru treatment for the mange and his hair is starting to grow in and cover the bald places. He is also up to date on all of his vaccinations, heartworm negative, and on heartworm preventative. Lucas is about 14 inches tall and came in to rescue weighing around 14 pounds. Lucas is a happy go lucky puppy that has just gotten into a foster home and we will be learning more about him, his personality and what he knows.

UPDATE: Lucas is over his case of sarcoptic mange and after noticing that the fur was not growing back on his face and feet we took him to a dermatologist. It was determined that Lucas may have what is commonly called collie nose or DM (Dermatomyositis). It is not contagious but a genetic issue that effects a small percentage of shelties and collies. Here is a website with information concerning DM: http://www.illinoissheltierescue.com/dm.html . Lucas is a sweet well behaved sheltie mix. He is house trained and crate trained and has excellent house manners. He loves to go on walks and interacts well with other dogs and with people he meets on those walks. We took him to Barnes and Noble when we were gift wrapping at Christmas and he was a wonderful ambassador meeting and smoozing with all of the visitors. He is currently around 7 years old and is looking for his forever home. He would love an active home as he loves to run and play with toys. He also gets along well with small children and other dogs.
