BRISTOL is a delightful and happy 2 yr old, 33#, female, tricolor sheltie.  Since arriving in rescue, she's been completely vetted, including a recent diagnosis of laryngeal paralysis (excess drooling).  This is a condition normally found in larger breed dogs.  There is no treatment, is not curable, but monitored.  Our Vet suggests that dogs with this condition would do better in an area with less heat and humidity.

 Link to describe condition:  


Bristol would do best in a quieter home.  She loves to play with other dogs but maybe to her determent (she can be a pest); therefore, an older or reserve canine companion that is not interested in a playmate would not be a great match for her..  She will also relax and lay quietly as well as jump in your lap for snuggles.  She has learned to play fetch and loves her toys.  She is a good traveler and would be a wonderful walking companion.  She still has a need for basic obedience work and is occasionally plenty barky.  

I am more than willing to discuss Bristol's condition with anyone that is not scared off by adopting a rescue dog that is "not medically perfect".  Rescue NEVER turns away a dog due to age, health or adoptability.  With that said and we also hope that there are potential sheltie loving adopters that are also willing to give these dogs a happy and loving home.
