Rocky

 

 

 

2/19/17: I’m here at the rescue because my owner was elderly and could no longer care for me. A very nice fellow gave me a ride to the collie rescue and my life so I can have a real home with love and care. This is where I have lived all my life, in a pen with no shelter. Yes I had a dog house but after adopting a kitten I let her have the house. Yesterday the volunteers worked on getting some of the mats out and I got a good brushing. Tuesday I will be going for a much needed bath, dental and neuter. I am a very sweet fellow at 7 years old and 72 pounds.

 

Wizzard (Adoption Pending)

 

 

1/29/17: I came all the way from Georgia and the great shelter folks gave me a ride half way so I could get to rescue. I was picked up as a stray and that was my lucky day as I have heartworms that will need to be treated and will also be neutered. The rescue folks are guessing me to be about 4 years old and I am 50 pounds but need to gain a few. I’m a fun loving, happy kind of guy that gets along with all the others. I like to run and play but when it is time for petting I get very serious about that.

1/5/17:  Here I am on the way home from being neutered.  I ride very well in the car and like to look out the window.

12/30/16:  You are probably going “WOW” what is that fellow doing on the collie rescue page? Well actually my mom was a collie but it seems I got all of dads bulldog looks. However I got moms personality. A sweet, gentle fellow that even likes cats and chickens. I am 2 ½ years old and about 80 pounds. Pretty good on the leash, housetrained and crate trained. Ziggy and I came into the rescue together. I going this week to be neutered.

Thank you Claudia Kelley and Susan Veld for caring about the mix collies also.

 

Ziggy (Foster Care)

 

ziggy-3 ziggy-2

 

 

 

 

 

1/9/17:  I’m sorry to report Ziggy has advanced Dermatomyositis and he will not be getting better.  He is already having trouble eating and drinking.  This is a disease that only gets worse and he will stay with me until he is ready to cross the bridge.

12/30/16: Just arrived here yesterday and although I may look like an old fellow I am 3 ½ years old. The tips of my ears have been eaten off by flies and my body is covered with mange mites. I’m frightened and not sure what is happening to me but they have some loving hands here that pet me. It will be a while before I am healthy enough to be neutered but please check back to see my progress.

Thank you Deborah McNaughton, Lee Walters, Gerrie Oliver, Kim Moore, Doug & Lisa Weaver, Robert Blumenthal, Anita Price, Linda Plante, Stephen Fishel, Vincent Binek, Michele Hallman, Kimberly Agzigian, Kimberlee Rettberg, Valeri Rothbauer, Deborah Brown, Jeannette Poling, Gilbert Olvera, Barbara Crockett, Deena Cuda, Jane Olvera, Roberta Healy and Barbara Rosso for helping me to get better.

 

Laddie (Adopted)

 

 

2/18/17: Well I sure found the perfect folks for me when the Smith’s came to visit. I get to be the only dog with all the attention and it was love at first sight. Since arriving home I have explored the house, yard and my very own dog bed. My favorite place is to settle on a rug in front of the hearth for long naps. Bill, Kathy and I are going to do everything together and they say I am the most handsome fellow in the neighborhood.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2/5/17: I sure love to play with toys and run around the yard with them. Sometimes I will even bring them back to be thrown again. Did I tell you that I am perfectly housetrained and will bark at the door when I need to go out? I’m also crate trained and will go in when I am asked. I know sit, come and love to follow you around.

 

1/29/17: Just arrived Thursday because my person could no longer keep me. A small fellow at about 50 pounds and six years old. I would prefer to be the only dog but cats are ok with me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anya (Adopted)

 

1/27/17: Here I am at my new home with Miss Barbara. We are very well suited and enjoy hanging out together. She doesn’t mind that I’m not very active and prefer lounging or following her around. The minute I met Barbara I laid down at her feet and knew she was the one for me. I have every thing I could possible want here with toys, treats, food and lots of love.

12/3/16:  DNA test says I am made up of 50% Collie, 37.5% Labrador and 17.5% Golden Retriever.

11/13/16: I’m looking so much better after my bath and sure am glad those fleas are gone. Rescue is a wonderful place where they take very good care of me. I will be going Wednesday for my spay.

11/6/16: Just arrived at the rescue with my Hickory who is my dad, Olive and Nova. I am about 5 years old and weigh 53 pounds. I’m so glad to be here at the rescue and it has been a very long time since I received any care. Heck my folks couldn’t even take care of themselves but at least they made sure I was fed. So far I have been treated for fleas, wormed, vaccinated and heartworm tested which was negative. I understand I am going to get a much needed bath this coming week so check back to see my progress.

 

 

 

Thank you Michele Hallman, Claudia Kelley, Kimberlee Rettberg, Kimberly Agzigian and Karen Warren for helping with my medical cost.

 

Midas (Adopted)

2/31/16: Looks like I’m going to be the last adoption for 2016 and I’m going home with Tanya and John. They understand this good life is all new to me and will take me a while to adjust. This is my new friend Abbie and it was love at first sight. We had such fun running and playing in the yard. She is so beautiful in her Christmas sweater and couldn’t take my eyes off of her. Thanks everyone who helped me to find the Hart’s and giving this collie mix fellow a chance for a good life.

12/11/16: New here to the rescue and they are guessing me to be about 1 ½. They call me Midas because my coat is this long, beautiful golden color. I was picked up as a stray by the animal shelter and coming inside a house is all new to me. I really want to come in but afraid so I carry a 15 foot leash around so I can be caught to come in the house. Once I am inside I am fine, it is just coming through that door that spooks me. I am learning about love from humans and how good petting can feel. Please check back to see my progress as I lean about the good life.

Thank you Susan Veld for helping with my medical needs.

 

Comet (Adopted)

12/27/16: Can you believe I have a real family with Chris and Randy? There is also Joy the collie and Jackie the jack Russell that let me know I’m not the boss. I’m getting so much attention and I have my very own dog bed and a bone. And if this wasn’t great enough I’m going to go to school and I really enjoy learning. What a long way I have come from being a lonely boy on a chain. This is going to be the best New Year ever and thanks everyone that helped me to find the Pomplin’s.

comet-3

12/24/16: It’s the same old thing every year with “Come on Comet let’s put your antlers on”. This is what happens when you were born in December and given a reindeer name. However I do look pretty handsome in them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

comet comet-2

 

 

 

 

 

12/17/16: My name is Comet and I am a 2 ½ year old collie fellow. I was purchased as a puppy and then dad passed away. Mom is 80 and she was afraid I would knock her down so she put me on a tie outside. Since I haven’t been taught any manners I probably would have knocked her down and you also because I really like to jump up. I am really starved for attention and the companionship of humans. I don’t know how to play with the other dogs and I’m way to rough with them so they don’t like me much. The rescue folks tell me I will learn and I am really trying. Doing good with the crate training even though I am not very food motivated. This week I am going to have a bath and hopefully will be white again.  Please check back to see my progress as I learn the things I missed as a puppy.

Thank you Susan Burakoff-Hopkins and Deborah Knowles for helping with my medical needs.

 

Nova (Adopted)

12/29/16: My new home will be with Miss Jean. I was a bit nervous on the ride home because it is a little scary not knowing what is happening to you. However when we arrived my tail started to wag again. There are band new things here just for me like toys, chews and a fluffy bed. I have met the cat and we are alright with each other. Thanks everyone who helped to make this wonderful home possible for me. It is truly going to be a good new year.

12/24/16: This is a special Christmas for me where I am in a place where I am loved and cared for. I have seen all the packages you wonderful folks have sent with treats, toys and food for us.

11/13/16: It took 2 baths to get my fur white again and know I am looking pretty now. I was very good for the bath and my skin feels so much better. My face is starting to heal up from where I scratched it because of the fleas. I’m going Monday for my spay.

12/29/16:  It’s been a long day, but I’m already loving my new home in Virginia with Dan and Gloria. As soon as we got home, I helped mom get food from the pantry for dinner. Of course, I got to eat first! I did a perfect down stay on my mat while mom and dad had their dinner and then I discovered a huge toy box! Then dad and I had a talk. He said that I needed a proper Scottish name that reflects my personality. So, from now on, I’m Fergus, which means strong and manly. I’m pretty played out and my bed feels so good…

12/24/16: Nice to meet you folks and I am a 3 year old, smooth collie mix fellow at 60 pounds. Since I am 90 percent collie it would be hard to guess the other 10 percent. However I have all the collie traits and a smart fellow also. You might have noticed that cut above my eye and this is where I was attacked at the animal shelter. I had to have stitches in my forehead and my leg. Healing up fine and things are looking up for me now. I know all my commands like sit, down, wait and come. Pretty good on the leash and a very athletic fellow that will need a 6 foot fence. I am crate trained and housetrained and have a great personality.

 

Piper (Adopted)

12/26/16: Carolyn and Robert came to take me home today. I will be their 2nd adoption from the collie rescue and know I am going to have a great home. I have met the others and they have accepted me into the group. I get to sleep on the bed here and no doubt I will be very much spoiled.

12/21/16: I am an eight month old collie puppy girl at about 35 pounds. I’m a smart girl being housetrained, crate trained, know sit, come and go potty. I would like a home with another dog that would like to run and play with me. I also very much like cheddar cheese if you might have some.

Thank you Caryn Ward for helping with my medical needs.

 

Tessa (Adopted)

tessa-maxwells-2

 

12/24/16: Today the Maxwell’s brought Ruari to meet us girls and pick out a new friend. Ruari was also adopted from the collie rescue and I found him to be very handsome. He really knows how to romance a girl with us running and playing all over the yard. Yep he picked me to go home with him and so did Scott & Maria. What a special Christmas this will be for me.

12/21/16: Tessa here and I am 1 ½ years old and about 50 pounds. I am housetrained, crate trained and know basic commands. I am in rescue because I kill chickens and guess the farm life just isn’t for me. So if you don’t have chickens I might be the one for you and have a great personality. Get along fine with the other dogs and enjoy a good romp in the yard.

 

Olive (Adopted)

12/22/16: Clearly Miss Cynthia was the one for me because she came wearing green just like my name and it is her favorite color. We are taking things slowly because I am a little confused right now. I have my very own bed just for me and I am getting a lot of attention. Us girls are going to do great together and thanks everyone that helped me to find a home for Christmas.

12/11/16: I’m going to have a home with Robert & Sabrina this Christmas. They came to meet me yesterday and MayMay and I got along right away. We made the long ride to MD just fine and I have checked out my first real home. We ate dinner and had a kong with treats inside. The Pacifici’s understand that this good life is very new to me and it will take a little time for me to accept it. There is no doubt I will be very much loved with them.

11/27/16: Just arrived this week and understand I will be going for my neuter this coming week. I was picked up as a stray by the animal control and rescue folks came to get me. Starting to adjust to this new life but a little shy right now. I’m a 2 year old, gentle kind of fellow and weigh about 65 pounds. Please check back to see my progress as the rescue folks get to know me.

Thank you so much Kendy Cochran for helping with my medical cost.
