Dear Friends of The Scottish Terrier Rescue of the Southeast, We are so excited to be putting together our 2015 calendar.  YES, it’s that time again! In addition to this year’s rescues we will use 2 pages in the calendar to remember Scottie’s adopted in previous years,  including those who are no longer with us.  If you would like to have your dog included in the calendar, please email STRSE at with a picture of your dog by August 24th.  All pictures must be submitted by the August 24th cutoff date to ensure being included in this year’s calendar.

Requesting submissions: All dogs adopted in 2014, Any dog adopted prior to 2014 for the 2 remembrance pages.  Updated photos will be appreciated. Any dog adopted in 2013 that was not in last year’s calendar (please note this in the email)

We are also adding a page of STRSE Alumni Dogs.  We would like to divide the grouping of alumni into those still with us and those that have passed.  If you can indicate which group to place the photo in when sending that would be great.

We are also planning to add a performance Scottie section so if any of your Scotties participate in dog sports such as agility, rally, obedience, barn hunt  send us a picture of him/her in action@

Please send a good resolution image, your dog’s name and note whether your dog was adopted this year or previously.

Calendars will be available in late September.

A very special Thank You to Cincinnati Scotty Friends

Dawn D, one of our volunteers  in FL, along with her pack & a friend got to make the trip to the annual Cincinnati Scotty Friends 2014 Collectors Show this year & by all accounts they had a great time representing STRSE.  We hope many more STRSE

We especially thank Cincinnati Scotty Friends for their generous donation of $311.00 to STRSE.  We appreciate your support of our rescue & will certainly put it to good use for the medical expenses of one of the little ones that comes in to us.  Thank you for naming STRSE to receive the proceeds from the special fund raiser for Scotty Rescues this year.  And Thank You Linda Sprinkle for naming STRSE as your rescue of choice to receive these funds.

Happy Tail Bunny Rebecca

Meet Bunny Rebecca! Her new parents Howard and Karen contacted us in Florida about a year ago after loosing their precious Scottie Ann. They weren’t sure if they were ready so we put their application on hold for awhile.
Well along came beautiful Bunny that needed a new home where their were no other dogs. She was surrendered by her owner due to health reasons and had very little socialization for most of her life. She needed a new devoted family that could introduce her to a big wide world and Howard and Karen were just the ticket. They saw her pictures and heard her story and it was the perfect match at the perfect time.
She has settled in just fine as you can see from her happy expression and is enjoying walks around the neighborhood, playing with toys and lots of love. Many thanks to Dawn for reaching out to her new potential family,Brenda and her family for fostering and Pam for doing the home visit at short notice in order to make this happen so quickly for Bunny Rebecca and her new furever family.

Karlee Sue’s got a new home!

Karlee SUe

Karlee Sue is one of our most recent rescues. She has been adopted by Kay and spends her days learning rally obedience and barn hunt and playing with her Scottie sister and two Airedale sisters. She is learning to be the dog she was meant to be and having a wonderful time. Kay said she loves learning and playing. Another wonderful success story! Karlee Sue is a very lucky little dog to be with Kay and her family. We are so thrilled that Karlee Sue is so loved and cherished. And Karlee Sue is showing how much she appreciates the love and attention she is receiving. She is a busy and happy little girl.

Maggie’s Happy Tail!


Maggie is thriving. Look at this beautiful girl. She was fostered by Karen in 2011 and adopted by Patrick in June of 2011. She is a happy, loved and cherished little Scottie lass. Thank you to our fosters for the wonderful care they give to these little ones and to our wonderful adopters for giving these Scotties the love and life the so deserve. Patrick reports that Maggie runs the household -as it should be for a Scottie lass.

What a year!

It is our pleasure to announce that with your generous support from around the country and the help of our wonderful volunteers in NC, SC and FL we were able to rescue 64 Scotties (33 in Florida alone) in 2013. Several of those scotties required long term care for heartworm , behavioral issues, and sadly cancer. They are now in their furever homes, and we could not be happier! rescues Thank you for helping us make sure that no Scottie is left behind!

It’s a Happy Tail!

Congrats to Scott and Sally who have just adopted sweet Miss Lassie! She is beautiful and happy girl who is going to be loved for the rest of her life. And special thanks to first time foster Tracy! We can’t thank you enough for opening your heart and home to fostering! Librariesassie
