Linda Greiner fell in love with Shelties when doing research on what type of dog to get for her sixteenth birthday. Many years later she decided to adopt instead of buying from a breeder and contacted the Shetland Sheepdog Placement Services of New Jersey. Sashi was her first experience with a severely traumatized dog. With love, patience, positive reinforcement training, and the Rescue’s support, they were able to overcome Sashi’s problem behaviors.

Linda started fostering for SSPSNJ in 2003.  Each dog has had a tale to tell. She is currently working on a new book and plans to create a series about Sashi and the rescues they have known and loved. A portion of the proceeds from Sashi, the Scared Little Sheltie, Sashi Adopts a Brother, and Sashi and the Puppy Mill Girl will benefit Sheltie Rescue.
