I'm a naturally playful, curious, and trusting canine. Take me for a big walk every day; give me something to do. After my job's done, I'll curl up in front of the fire with you in the evenings. (Externally motivated)

|I just e-mailed them. Hopefully he has a tattoo/microchip so we can find out who his breeder is. Thanks for posting this Jaci.|
|Thanks, Amber |
Would it be better if next time I sent this privately?
|Let me know if you need help with transporting Amber...I'm just around the corner!|
|I sent the link onto a family here in Halifax that is looking to rescue a Sheepie. |
There seems to be alot poping up in Ontario lately.
|Great team work ladies|
There seems to be a lot popping up in Ontario lately.
Just spoke with the shelter....Panton is safe as this a no-kill shelter.
Panton has no previous chip or tattoo....the shelter has just had him chipped. She stated that he has "issues" but when I asked for details she said "well, he is a sheepdog!" They are recommending that he go to a family with children over 16 years old.
I have a friend whose daughter volunteers at this shelter and Laura is going to keep an eye on him for us.
|A lot of people seem to recommend older children. I guess because of size ( they knock young ones over) and the hearding. But my first sheepie was raised with my 5 nephews when they were babies and I never had a problem. Think its more of a parent needs to be aware, not dont have one. Just my thoughts... HAte to see a young child not get the joy and love of a sheepie because someones scared they will get knocked over.|
|Thanks for contacting the shelter, Barbara!|
I hope he'll find a nice family.
It's the liability and often unknown, misunderstood or not-fully-disclosed history/background.
Then too, some people don't properly train their children to respectfully interact with dogs...
or some are too young to understand.
|I seen more than one of those little ankle biters bring down an adult. At least with a sheepie or larger dog you casee AND hear them coming!!!!!!|
|i brought home both my babies with an OES She was wonderful with them!!|
Panton has found a furever home!!!!!
|That is wonderful news|
