Sky is a people and dog friendly Sheltie. He is approximately 12 ½ years old. Sky is hard of hearing and gets his cues from his foster sister, MNSR alum Tessa and his foster humans. Sky is learning some dog sign language to help him communicate (sit, come, quiet, yes, down). Sky loves to be anywhere his people and Tessa are. Sky has a never-ending ‘smile’ on his handsome face.
Sky would enjoy another older, respectful dog in his new home or an owner who is home a lot. He doesn't like to be left alone when Tessa goes for a walk, but he can't walk long distances due to hip/leg weakness. He loves to play-bow and chase a bit with Tessa but because of stiffness and arthritis his play time is limited. Sky is on thyroid and some pain meds which have helped increase his activity level. A home with few steps is best for him.
Sky is a smart boy who learns fast. He barks when he's hungry, when he is happy to see his people (he settles down quickly), when he has to go potty and when he sees foster sister Tessa barking.
Sky is a larger Sheltie and weighs around 40 pounds. He is reliably house trained and walks nicely on leash however he cannot walk long distance. Click on Sky's photo to learn more about him.
