There once was a man from Montana who lived in a small town with his 74 dogs.  One day, the man suddenly passed away and the dogs had no one to look after them. Unfortunately this isn’t a fairy tale, it’s a true story. You can read more of the details here if you are interested. 
All the dogs were surrendered to the Lewis and Clarke Humane Society and have been making their way in 1′s and 2′s to various rescues across the States and Canada.  
As you can imagine, the dogs are a little uncertain about all the changes. They’ve spent all of their lives outside with limited human contact.  They have never been on a leash, never worn a collar, never walked down a sidewalk, etc.  Heck they never probably even had names.
Despite all this, they are quite friendly dogs, if a little shy.  They’ve all been vaccinated, spayed/neutered, dewormed, treated for fleas and given baths.  Quite an accomplishment in just over 2 weeks!
We met a volunteer in Shelby, MT on Sunday and picked up three of the dogs.  Two of them have gone off to the Alberta Sheltie Rescue and one little boy is staying with us until we find him a new home.

We snapped off a few pictures of Billy before he went off to his foster home, but we’ll be sure to get more once he adjusts to the changes in his life.

We’ll also get more information out as he reveals his personality to us.
Sheltie 3 >Billy {Sheltie/Pomeranian Cross}   Adoption Pending
Billy would do best in a quieter home and probably one with another dog or cat to keep him company.  As he grew up outside, he is not house trained and not used to a leash, but we will be working on those!

For more information on this dog, please contact the Windy City Canine Rescue at info@windycityrescue.com or by calling 403-359-3139.

Our adoption fee allows us to provide the basics for the dogs in our care, but we are always encountering additional expenses (dental work, medicine for illnesses, etc.).  If you would like to help dogs like this one, but aren’t looking to adopt one at this time, please consider a donation.  Thank you.
