When we adopted Victory in the fall of 2013, Victory was one of many shelties living in a horrible hoarding house on the western side of Michigan. Soon after, we discovered Chrissy, a sheltie who was also a victim of the horrible hoarding situation. You can read and view further information about the hoarding situation here, here, here, and here.
After we adopted Victory, we saw that Chrissy was up for adoption through the Michigan Sheltie Rescue, and Doug and I believe that Victory and Chrissy are related as they have a striking resemblance — just look at the unique coloring with a hint of Blue Merle; the snout shape; and the similar nose and ears! Perhaps Chrissy is Victory’s sister, auntie, or cousin? What do you think?
In the photos below, Chrissy is shown on the left, which was taken on her first night in her furever home; and Victory is shown on the right while she was in her foster home taken shortly before we met and adopted Victory. (Both images were taken approximately at the time of adoption).
I recently contacted the Michigan Sheltie Rescue who put me in contact with Chrissy’s parents. We discovered that Chrissy lives in Ohio, not too far from my parents who live in Michigan. Our plan is to coordinate a reunion for the two fur girls the next time we travel to Michigan to visit family! At that time, I will take some photographs of the two girls together, and it will be wonderful to witness both of their wonderful transformations! We can’t wait to meet Chrissy!
We hope that you have a great weekend! We are headed back to the Eastern Shore this weekend with Victory! It should be a fun and beautiful weekend!
