We saved a 3 year old Sheltie yesterday. His name is Shadow. He is the most beautiful dog...very sweet. But he has been very mistreated. He is scared to death of JD (all men) and is very timid even with me and my daughter. I think he was hit with his food bowl!!... He is very thin. We noticed if we or our hands were near his food bowl he cowered away. Will eat only if no one is near his bowl. Goodness gracious...how could someone do that to such a sweet animal??!!
