We said our final farewells to Sherman today.  Penny was by his side, so she would know her life partner had traveled to the Rainbow Bridge.

Afterwards, we allowed Penny time to be with Sherman.  She gently sniffed his lifeless body, then stoically sat next to him, guarding her mate.  I truly feel she would still be there, sitting next to him, if we didn't intervene.  It's something we've not seen before, and may never again.  Penny loved her man, and she showed it till the end.

Sherman joined us as an owner surrender, along with his lifelong companion, Penny (L).  They are truly an inseparable pair.  Unfortunately, Penny will soon need to face the reality of being alone, as Sherman has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.  We have been treating him for several months, hoping the tumor would shrink, but it hasn't.  Sherman is now in the final stages of his life and has entered our Hospice Care Program.  We are monitoring him at all times, and Penny is by his side, as she should be.  They are a remarkable couple, and we feel sad that there aren't any medical solutions to Sherman's health issues. 

It's our feeling that we should be here for dog's like Sherman and Penny, so they can at least have a chance for treatment.  Even though in this case, our options were decidedly limited, Sherman did indeed, have a chance given to him.

If you are able to help us with the costs of Sherman's past care and other dogs like Sherman, we know he would be so appreciative.

All dogs adopted by Scottie Kingdom Rescue have had a full medical exam by our Veterinarian and have received all necessary vaccinations, in addition to being spayed/neutered and microchipped. Because we want to assure you of the health of our adoptable pets, we include a 30 day pet health and accident insurance policy, at no cost to you.

Scottie Kingdom Rescue is a 501(c)3 Non Profit Organization. We prefer to adopt to families with past Scottie, Westie and/or Terrier experience, but realize this isnít always possible.

We do not ship our pets. If you have that special place in your heart & in your home for a Scottie (or any of our other available Rescue Dogs), please be prepared to visit us in Dallas for an in person meet & greet session with our Available Dogs.

If you have existing dogs, they must travel to Dallas with you, so we can be assured that they will be compatible with the new addition to your family.

Please contact us at Rescue@scottiekingdom.com to receive an Adoption Application or for more information on our Adoption process. Also, please take the time to visit our website www.scottiekingdom.com for further information.

We sometimes receive several applications on the same dog. Our goal is to place the dog in the best home possible based on his/her needs, personality and past history. Please note that adoptions are NOT done on a first come, first serve basis. Submitting an application does not guarantee the adoption of any dog. We are looking for the best possible home for each of our rescue dogs.

Thank you for your understanding, and for considering adoption!
