ADOPTION SUCCESS: Tater (now Fergus) moves to VA

"Tater" as he was affectionately called at his foster home with Kimmy and Chilly has found his furever home.  You met Tater now Fergus in our last issue and his adoption was in process. 
Kimmy pulled Fergus for us at a Wedowee, AL shelter.  This cutie had blue eyes and became a big favorite at Kimmy's household.  Her sheepie Duds became fast friends with Fergus and it was becoming harder for Kimmy to let him go. 
Her sister and her sister's family had always been a fan of Kimmy's dog Duds and Kimmy asked her sister if she might be interested in Fergus.  The family voted and they were ready for a sheepie of their own.  Afterall when Kimmy went to visit her family in VA, her sister's family was in charge of babysitting sheepie Duds. 
The hard part was breaking it to Duds that his playmate of 2 months was moving.  Kimmy delivered Fergus to her sister and her dog Duds got to help him feel real comfy at his new home.  It was just like being in Alabama.  The boy sheepies parted ways after the holidays.  
Fergus has become a big part of Courtney's home (Kimmy's sister) and gets to go to dog parks, take big long walks and hangs out with the kids. 
The great news is ... over spring break the boys got to reunite and it was a very happy time for both boys and even happier for the families to watch the pups play so well together.   
Happy pups!

Atlanta-Sheepie Day in the Park- APRIL 21

Our Atlanta spring sheepie day in the park will be held on Saturday, April 21 at 1pm (eastern) - 3pm.
Held at our nice big dog park in Norcross, GA, called Pinckneyville Park on South Old Peachtree, this 5 acre park has lots of room for pups to run wild in a nice big fenced location. 
There is some seating there, but you may want to bring your own.  Additionally, bring some water for the pups, because the fountain is still not on fulltime yet.  Make sure you have your dog on a leash until you get into the park.  Make sure you have a current rabies tag on your dog or proof of vaccination on you.   Playtime is at your own risk. 
Feel free to call for directions with Fiona at 404-444-3606 or email for an evite at placement@oesrescuenetwork.org
Hope to see you all there!



This blue eyed beauty is 7 years old.  She was an owner turn in.   She does get along with other dogs, but might do best on her own, with good playtime at dog parks
While Daisy's eyes were considered ok when she met with the vet, it was determined if she was a human she might need reading glasses.  Daisy bit a 4 year old child.  She had lived with this child with no issues for 3 months.  The bite was unprovoked, but it did occur when the child was laying down in front of her.  We feel Daisy couldn't focus well enough on what was in front of her.  Daisy has never shown any aggression before and we would not consider this dog to be a biter.  In fact, she had just lost her boxer playmate about 4 days before this incident, so she was already depressed and then was given up, so we just want her to be happy again.  We just don't think a home with kids is a good fit. 
She is a bit food bowl possesive, so that needs to be taken into consideration.  She is approx. 65lbs, spayed, UTD on shots, HW neg and microchipped. 
Daisy is looking for someone or some small, no child family to love her in her senior years.  She is looking for her happy place again.
She is being fostered in South Alabama.



We hope to be rolling out our new website on Monday, April 9th.  Check it out.  Each time you click on it, you will see a different banner (filled with lots of pretty sheepies, many from our rescue).  Even though the main roll out will be Monday, we will be updating various parts and adding on a few more things after the site goes live.  Thanks to Colin Crews for his hard work on giving us a new look.

Congrats to Fred and Roberta

Best wishes to Fred and Roberta on their upcoming May marriage.  Roberta is the owner of sheepie Cully and got her dog through our rescue.  Roberta has always participated in sheepie days held in Atlanta and volunteered for us as well.  But her sweetest gift was in her wedding invitation where she requested in lieu of gifts, to send donations to our rescue and another charity.  Thanks for thinking of us Roberta.  We will be thinking of you on your special day!

With Our Deepest Sympathies- Mark Peizer

Another one of our Atlanta friends, Mark Peizer, passed away in early March.  Mark, loved sheepies and his current sheepie "Brianna" was a joy to his life.  Mark and his wife Pat were inseparable and came to many of our Sheepie Day in the Parks over the past 4 or 5 years.  Mark was such a kind, sweet man and we will miss him dearly.

More Sympathies-GB Dykes

GB passed away recently in February.  He had attended a few of our Sheepie Day events in Atlanta and mostly came with his ex wife Kim Hoy.  They had recently reunited. Each owning a sheepie,  GB owning Elvis and Kim with AJ.  Our deepest sympathies go out to Kim as we say goodbye to GB, a friend and sheepie owner.
