Sheba Needs a Home

(Update:  We’re keeping Sheba.  Her forever home is with us!)


This is a copy of the flier that I will be putting up at the local feed stores and in our vet’s office.  If you know someone who might be able to give Sheba a good home, please pass this link on to them.  We are in northwest Georgia.  Thanks so much!



Sheba is an Australian Shepherd/Lab mix.  She is 10-1/2 months old and weighs around 42 pounds.  She has been spayed, and all of her shots are up-to-date.

She is loving, trusting and energetic!

She needs a home with plenty of room to run, and active owners who will run and play with her.

We are asking $100 for her to protect her from the fate that some “free to good home” puppies fall victim to, but are including 10 months of her heartworm/parasite prevention meds.

If you are looking for a wonderful companion or working dog, please call us at

(We’ve decided we must keep Sheba, so I’ve removed the phone number.)

This is another photo that is not on the flier, but I am putting it here because it shows her beautiful profile.

  1. What a beautiful dog – I’m sure you’ll find a wonderful new home for her!

  2. She is a beauty. But they are working dogs and you are giving her the best chance for her breed. Hang in there.

    SPecial needs animal rescue and rehabilitation may be able to help you with Sheba. My wife has them on facebook and I think they are located in Louisiana. The phone number I have is 425-5162559.
    Sheba is beautiful and I hope this helps.
    Feel free to email me or call in the afternoons. My number is 479-3818789

    • Thank you so much for the ray of Hope, Tim. I can’t quite bear to call them today. Will call them Monday.

  4. Such a sweet, sweet baby….I know the perfect home is out there somewhere!

  5. Lynne, I think you are Sheba’s biggest fan. Thank you for loving her and caring about her so much!

  6. She’s a sweetheart…needs a big huge red bow and sitting under the Christmas tree gifted to a new special owner. I hope things work out soon, that new home arrives, and she’s out running the land. I feel how saddening this is and pray that door of opportunity opens soon. Hang in there! xo

    • What is so sad is that Sheba is still depressed. She has been lying on the back deck all day. She doesn’t want to come inside. Doesn’t want to do anything.

      I feel crushed that we turned out to be such poor parents for her.

    You’re being much too hard on yourself! You have given her a wonderful start and a loving home, and some fun adventures. And you’re being quite generous and cautious with her owners-to-be. You truly did rescue her from who-knows-what in that parking lot! She may simply be sensing your own mood. I understand they do pick up on our emotions!

    • Kathy, your comment really made me feel better. Sheba is being so loving tonight. And I have been really down about the situation lately.

      I am going to try to find her a new home because I believe she would be much happier. But if I can’t, we will just keep her and take it one day at a time.

    Maybe post the flyer at your veterinarian’s office? Sometimes I’ve had good luck finding homes that way. And there are rescues all over that might be able to help.

    And please, don’t beat yourself up. You are trying to do the right thing for her…it’s not like you’re dumping her. All you can do is your best….you obviously care a lot for her.

      Sorry, I just noticed that you already stated that you would be posting it at your vets office.

      • Teri, my vet and the whole staff just love Sheba. I am sure they will do all they can to help find a home for her. Also, Tim McDougall commented above that a rescue group his wife is involved with may be able to help. I will call them after the holidays.

        And yes, I do love her dearly. She is a wonderful dog.
