    I am not affiliated with any rescue, I'm just trying to help a friend, and I hope this post is allowed in here. I'm located in Florida, and doing this for a man in Douglasville who has an elderly Sheltie mix that he must rehome by August 30th at the latest. He is leaving the country.

    Ricco is a 15 year old Sheltie mix. He is in really good health other than age related hip problems. He is neutered, Loves kids, is great with cats and walks on a leash. He just needs somewhere to spend his senior days, and has an owner who cares enough to reach out to me, a person who generally networks basset hounds!! So, I started searching and found this forum.

    Ricco's owner is Mark Funk, and can be reached at (Kelly here, please PM this person for the phone #)
    I am going to try and attach some photos of Ricco.z

    ok, I tried to embed photos from Facebook, and couldn't figure out how to do it..

    Penny Zalaback=====I'll be back with photos, when I figure this out.

    Thank you so much for helping out, and I hope Ricco finds a good home quickly, but honestly - why would you give up a 15 year old dog? As a dog parent I cannot fathom doing this - for any reason unless I was dying. It will be difficult to find a person willing to take on a dog this old, although there are some out there - thank God. I am sad for Ricco but will keep him in my thoughts and pray a situation can be found for him to peacefully live out his days.

    Can any Florida Sheltie Nation members help? I'm in California, so not much help here.
