ASR's Available Shelties


No Longer Accepting Applications for Lenny - Adopted


This sweet little guy is Lenny. He came to us with very little information so we have had to make some guesses. We think he is about 9 years old and we can tell he was well loved by his mannerisms and personality.

Lenny gets along well - or at least tolerates - other pets in the home and has no problems sharing. He is bit on the timid side and very much likes to be inside the home.

He has some health issues that are being managed so he will need a family that will commit to ongoing veterinary care - nothing too out of the ordinary for a senior dog.

Lenny would prefer a quieter home where he can enjoy his retirement years. Lenny's is fostered in the Calgary area and his adoption fee is $250.00.

Please note we do not arrange transborder adoptions and if you are applying from out of province you need to be prepared to travel to meet him.

Contact us anytime at if you would like to be considered for Lenny.

Accepting Applications for Guinness


Guinness is a male Sheltie approximately 7 years of age. He is on the tall size for a Sheltie and weighs 30 pounds.

Guinness knows his basic commands and is a smart dog. He loves to go for walks but is very reactive on leash to other dogs nearby. He is not reactive to people walking. Food aggression with him is also an issue and he needs to be fed in a contained area away other pets in the house.

When he is loose with other dogs he loves to play. He is bothered though by high strung dogs and has difficulty dealing with them. Bonding with his humans is no problem. He loves pets, tummy rubs and brushing.

Most times with visitors he is very social. When he is unsure of new people in the house he needs a quiet place to chill out and usually is fine when reintroduced to them.

Guinness is not a pet for the first time dog owner. He needs a family that has had lots of experience with dogs. He will need a family with a very docile other pet or no other pets. A home without small children would be best. His ideal family would need to be willing to work with absolute consistency, on his prey drive and aggression issues is essential. Working with a trainer/behaviorist who specializes in dog aggression would be most beneficial. Guinness has a lot of love to give to his forever family.

Guinness' ideal family:

  • is very experienced with dogs
  • has a fully fenced, secure back yard
  • is willing to work with a trainer/behaviourist to help Guinness with his reactive behaviours and food aggression

Guiness is fostered in the Red Deer area and his adoption fee is $350.00.
