I am a Sheltie, but i and my litter mates were bough tby a reputable breeder cause she felt bad for us we were puppy mill puppies. But we wereeligable for registartion so i have papers. (not that that would ever matter to my mom) But to give u an idea of my not so savy breeding and genetics. Iam a 50 pound sheltie thats twice what the hight and weight says (AKC standards). My mommie had just movedout of her parents house and her brothers would not let her take my uncle Laddie (a collie). She wanted one but ther trailer was to small for a bigh dog, so she wanted a mini collie so to speak. lol and she got me i have been with her ever since which is 7 years. I have a little arthritis due to being hit in my shoulder by a car. My mommie say i am the most l;oyal dog she has ever had or mwet and i have 3 brothers.

HI, Im Alex.. I used to be called Tippy but my new mom and dad gave me a better people name. They rescued me from the pound in april. I dont remember much from before but someone had burned me and had been mean to me. They didnt take care of my coat either so the people at the pound shaved it all off, I felt horrible and I looked like a sick coyote.
Now Im loved and am part of a family( I have a papillon brother named Sunny too) My coat is growing back and I am not so skinny anymore.


Yes, I'm- conjoined to my- mom's hip!

Me me! *raises paw*
I'm a "rescue" sheltie big grin

The reason I use ""'s is because as a puppy I had a home but almost 3 years later the family gave me back to my breeder to be re-homed and here I am now dancing I'll be 6 years old this coming November but I've always had white "old man" hairs on my nose since I was 3 years old! shock My calm personality makes people think I'm in my double digits or related to Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh, but I'm such a lovable cuddle dog that it's amazing that anyone who've I've ever warmed up to could ever live without me! cloud 9

I'm a rescue too! My mom saw me on petfinder and had to have me. I'm a spoiled and much loved Sheltie but I'm still very unsocialable and very shy with men... especially my daddy. But I got a new brother that plays with dad so it's all good now. Only now I have to share mom with Jake.
