Shaye's Angels
• Cathy & Steve Bouck, Ziggy & GHF alum Lincoln, in memory of John Andersen
• Linda, Sky, Connell & Anney, in memory of John Andersen
• Sue Basehore & Ilene Fischman, for AJ, one of the greatest mixes ever

SHAYE, Age 11
• Solo dog
• Fenced yard

SHAYE is hoping for a new home where he is the only guy in town! He’s been thriving at Glen Highland with lots of love and attention, as well as plenty of toy play, but like every sweet BC mix we know, this one wants his own people! Shaye is a youngster at 11, full of energy for a great ball game or long walk, a true lover of the great outdoors. He’s full of personality, curiosity and confidence, fine meeting anyone and everyone. Belly rubs are his favorites! Stimulating Shaye’s great brain is easy with food puzzles and trick training cause he’s happy to learn and eager to do well! He is rather selective with dogs so best as a solo boy and not a dog park dog, plus he requires a fenced yard. Shaye is about 45 pounds and good with cats. He has allergies to certain food and grasses so is on daily medication to prevent flare-ups. Prior to GHF, he was in a MD shelter from someone who could not manage his needs well.

Nanu's Angels

• Cathy & Steve Bouck, Ziggy & GHF alum Lincoln, in memory of John Andersen

NANU, Age 12
• No cats
• Must have fenced yard away from traffic

A 12 year old Glen Highland alum, NANU found himself back in rescue when his guardians had to move south and couldn’t take him. He’s a very flexible Border Collie, happy to hang his hat where life is good AND full of ball play! Upon arrival back in rescue, he became totally absorbed with the red jolly ball and getting it to move as well as placing his favorite tennis ball exactly where he knew it HAD to be thrown. Let’s just say that life for Nanu is a ball!!!! He is also a very, very friendly, good-natured boy, exactly how he was back in 2014. Nanu co-exists beautifully with other dogs, happy to hang out but eagerly awaits his person doing that one thing that makes him happiest - throwing the ball! Nanu has some interest in cars if near his home so would need a fenced yard away from traffic. His back-end is also a bit compromised so a first floor home gives him the most comfort and access to the people he loves.

Nanu was originally from a Humane Society confiscation in PA, then transferred to Glen Highland where our intake person’s Mom temporarily fostered him, falling in love. Heartbroken to give him back, she felt it was best based on their life changes. She knew we would be sure he found a great place, again. Nanu is either 12 or 13, though truly acts more like an 8 yr old! He will chase and herd cats so is best in a non cat home. He came back to rescue pretty chunky so will trim up easily considering how active he is.

REO, Age 12
Not yet available for adoption

A 12 year old Border Collie, this lovely sweetheart needed a place to ‘hang her hat’ once her person became ill and thankfully, a dog loving neighbor stepped in to help her land in rescue. Reo is just the nicest, most easy-going Border Collie most likely because her life allowed her to be the ‘neighborhood dog’. Everyone knew her where she lived so a simple walk down the small street meant tons of attention so this girl really loves people. She also enjoys having some canine action though clearly puts human affection ahead of dogs! Her most recent care by the neighbor has been good, helping her lose weight and be more mobile. Prior to that, her needs had not consistently been met so we have lots of vet work to tackle.

Reo has horrific teeth and will face a number of extractions. She also has the worst back-end we’ve seen in a long time, literally one side pushed to the other where she uses her back left leg to center under her body in order to then swing her back right leg forward to move. Her movement is so awkward that it’s uncomfortable to watch her walk. And, her upper body is way over-sized to provide relief from continual pain. It’s actually amazing she can even move.

No matter what her movements look like and all the pain she regularly endures, Reo is just undeterred and so happy to explore and accompany a person wherever they are going - she is truly an inspiration and also exactly what this breed is all about - they have such a will to never give up. Reo is presently undergoing more vet diagnostics so we can be sure she is clear of heartworm since she was not on preventative and lives in Virginia. We have a ‘haul’ ahead to give her the very best care that she truly needs however it is unlikely surgery will be an option due to her age. But, as always, GHF will unearth options and answers! And, in the meantime, she’s hanging with other Seniors who could care less about their pains and mobility issues either! We’ll update her story as it unfolds!
