ANGIE... is an absolutely beautiful sheltie girl who arrived with us after we stepped in to help another rescue.  It was supposed to be temporary, but she’s such a doll and no trouble so we offered to keep her here with us until a home could be found for her.

She landed in Dundalk Dog Pound  about 3 weeks ago in the most appalling condition. (see pix below). Who would have guessed there was such a stunner under all those matts?

Angie is about 5 yrs old and other than being a little timid, is just lovely - a very good little girl who is great with everyone, big or small. She’s housetrained, good in the car, and you can walk her almost anywhere off-lead as she wants to be at your side. She’s great with the gang here and is now beginning to come out of her shell. She and Tara have been playing kiss-chase in the garden in the past few days - and she loves her walks on Salisbury Plain, growing more confident every day.

Angie is looking for a loving home where she’s allowed on your lap for a cuddle and will have lots of company. Ah, and you’ll need a hairbrush  :-)

Angie is spayed, wormed and fully-vaccinated.

Video added... Angie has really come out of her shell now and is really loving life here at BRX HQ. It’s ovely to see her blossom - and it’s in all the right ways. It really is almost impossible to fault this girl.

UPDATE 22/11/10

Rehomed! Angie (now Lucy Lou) has gone to live with Martina and Garry in Portsmouth with the two other dogs they have adopted through us - Buddy (in 2007) and Max (was Casey) in 2008.  Mum Martina was looking for more of a lap-dog for herself and grew up with Shelties, so this is a match made in heaven - with the added bonus that this is a Sheltie (or perhaps Sheltie x - we can’t decide) that doesn’t bark!

We’ve absolutely loved fostering Lucy Lou and found it very hard to part with her, so are delighted she’s gone to such a perfect home.

Above and right, the Divine Miss Angie... beautiful now, but just look (below) at how she landed in Dundalk Dog Pound in early October..
