Gizmo was adopted by Moreen Jacobsen of Chapel Hill, NC.

After losing my sable female sheltie Crystal at 14 years of age, I was considering my options for finding a companion for my bi-black male sheltie and my tuxedo cat. A friend sent me an email about the "older dogs" that were in rescue and how they needed love too! One of them was a older sable male whose foster family called Gizmo and since I missed having a "brown face" at the door, I went to take a look at him. It was love at first sight! I decided to call him Gus, because it was close to Giz (that the Mike and Sheri were calling him) and he just seemed like a "sweet little Gus" to me. He has fit perfectly into my home, he is very calm and non confrontational with my other two males. I believe at one time in his life he was someone's very pampered only pet, because he can definately give me the dirty looks when I fuss over the other two. The experience of adopting Gus from Triangle Sheltie Rescue made me a believer in rescue shelties and I am now involved in helping TSR in their wonderful work.

An update from Moreen:

I've had Gus (aka Gizmo) for a little over a year now. Last January, I almost lost him. He swallowed a marble sometime before Christmas (this dog will try to eat anything that hits the floor)! Unfortunately, I didn't know he'd swallowed it until New Years weekend when he got desperately ill. The marble had lodged in his small intestine and he had to have 2 1/2 feet of his small intestine removed! He was in the Veterinary Specialty Hospital in Cary for two weeks! I insisted that they bring him out to me (IV's, tubes and all) so I could pet him and comfort him during those many long days and nights. Friends came to give me a break for time to time. One friend, began telling him stories to pass the time. His favorite was the one about how he captivated the crowd at the Sheltie Rescue Parade by waving and because of that he was named "Prince of the Shelties". He seemed to really like that story, so she told it to him everyday. With the help of the skilled vets, my friends and a very strong willed little sheltie we are all healthy and happy again!
