Lio was so happy to make his forever home with a family who treated him like royalty and loved him so. Lio loved greeting all the neighbors, and everyone knew Lio! He enjoyed trips in the RV and was the Sheltie ambassador at the RV park. Lio liked to be in the middle of everything, including the bed at night. He gave so much unconditional love. Lio crossed the Rainbow Bridge in April, 2017 and his family misses him so much. "Thank you for making the adoption of this wonderful fluffy bundle of love possible."


Emmy came into rescue as part of a breeding closure. Her life made a complete 180 when she was adopted by our trusted transport volunteer, and from that time, Emmy was dearly loved and very well-cared for. She shared her home with two other MNSR Shelties, Sweetie, and Emmy's buddy Cody. Emmy was reunited with Sweetie at the Rainbow Bridge in April 2017 at the age of 15. She is so very missed by her mom.


Sweet Prancer came into rescue with his brother, Coni, when their devoted mom passed away - she made sure when she became ill that MNSR would take care of them. Prancer bonded with his foster mom and quickly began to look to her for reassurance. When he also began playing with the resident Sheltie, it became clear that he was happy to make his foster home his forever home. And Prancer and Coni still get together for play dates and sleep-overs! Adopted 4/1/17.


Little Chauncy came into rescue with his best friend, Sheltie Casey. We kept our promise to them to keep them together for life, and they won over their foster mom's heart. Very sadly, Casey passed away from cancer soon after arriving in rescue, but she knew Chauncy was safe and loved and in very good hands. Chauncy follows his Sheltie sisters (Annie and MNSR alum Abbey) around and keeps everyone entertained with his happy, loving, bouncy personality! Adopted 2/15/17.
