5/2/16: Just arrived last week and will be going to my forever home on Friday. Seems there were some folks waiting on a sweet, 6 month old puppy fellow like me. I am the best puppy who is housetrained, crate trained and not much of a barker. My folks could not keep me because they had to move to a smaller home.

4/22/16: Just arrived here from the animal shelter yesterday. They picked me up as a stray and when my people didn’t come called you rescue folks. I am a one year old collie girl at about 45 pounds that recently had puppies. Being so young, birthing babies sure took a lot out of me and have lost most of my coat. My hair will come back and I will be spay when I get healthy again. Please check back to see my progress.

Thank you Tammy Goodman, Debbie Olsakovsky and Nancy Covey for helping with my medical needs.

3/19/16: They sure don’t waste any time here at the rescue and I have been neutered. Today when the volunteers came we found out I like a good game of fetch with the tennis ball. I am also good on the leash and enjoy going for walks.  I weigh 60 pounds and that is a good weight for me.

3/12/16: Hello folks, I am a one year old collie fellow whose folks were having a hard time so they decided to let me find a new home. I am still very much a puppy that is good with cats, other dogs and children but sometimes play to rough with them. I know sit, shake, down, crate trained, housetrained and don’t mind having my nails grind when needed. I have been very well cared for and know this was hard for my people.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you Karen Creager and Claire Thompson for helping me.

4/16/16: Idgie and I are at the rescue because after getting us our owner had an accident and could not take care of us. We are both 16 months old and the rescue folks think it would benefit us to be separated. Neither of us have missed any meals and a little overweight but will probably be around 70 pounds. We are getting to know the others here and fitting in just fine. I love toys and don’t mind playing by myself.  We have been spay and vaccinated.

4/16/16: Practicing my sits today with the rescue volunteers. You know just like people some dogs look older than they are and I am only 7 years. While this is great when you are a teenager not so much when you are middle age as I am.  I’m just very blond and my face isn’t white yet.

3/25/16: I am a sweet, 7 year old collie girl who is housetrained and crate trained. I get along great with the other dogs and fine with cats also. My dad has is in the hospital with leukemia and to be near him mom moved to an apartment in the same city. Such a sad situation and thought it best to find me a new home. I’m going this week to get my teeth cleaned and then ready for my new home.

Thank you Virginia King, Carolyn D. Ladd, Terri L. Cheema, Marian Ridge, Chris Hillhouse, Paul Licurs Jr, Debbie Olsakovsky, Tammy Goodman and Nancy Covey for helping with my medical cost.

 

Syrinx

4/8/16: Nine years ago my people gave me the name Syrinx maybe because of my sweet voice. Since my name is really all I have the rescue isn’t going to change it. My folks were both disabled, moving and could no longer care for me. I’m a plus size lady at 80 pounds so now on a diet and exercising with the others will help out. I am in need of a good brushing and will get that when the volunteers come tomorrow. I’m a sweet girl who gets along with all no matter people, dogs and cats. The rescue would like a permanent foster home for me to live out my years. This is where the rescue will pay for my medical needs and all you have to do is love me. If you would like to help with my medical needs just hit the donate button below.

Thank you Ann Moyle, Carol Clasen, Gordana Kosutic, Nancy Gooding, Mary Witul, Ronald Cohn, Pam Barron, Susan Huneycutt, Kim Moore, Michael Sanderson, Maria Maxwell and Edward Brown for caring about me and helping with my medical needs.

4/16/16: Well I went last week for my heartworm treatment and doing very well. I will have another one in a month and due to my age we are doing it the slow way. Sure enjoyed the sunshine today and a good back rub in the grass. I am very gentle, calm, quiet and tender hearted. Never any trouble and just like to be by your side. The rescue would like a permanent foster home for me to live out my years. This is where the rescue will pay for my medical needs and all you have to do is love me.

3/19/16: First of all I would like to thank the many people who helped make it possible for me to come to the collie rescue. You see I was picked up by the animal control as a stray and my time for getting adopted was just about up. I am a collie mix, senior lady and the rescue is guessing me to be about ten years old. Although I have a lot of white in my face I have beautiful, healthy teeth. Today the volunteers brushed my coat and removed all the mats. Next week I will be going for my first bath in a very long time. I look forward to starting my new life but sadly we found out I have heartworms. The vet will do bloodwork to make sure I am healthy enough to have the treatment. Please keep me in your prayers and thank you for saving my life. If you would like to help with my medical cost just click the donate button and say it is for Celine.

I am woman, hear me roar.  Feeling so good after my dental and gaining weight.

Twinkle 02222016

3/5/16:  I had 11 teeth pulled this week and so glad to have those painful things out of my mouth.

2/25/16:  Woo Hoo, I have gained eight pounds and almost up to 50 pounds which would be a good weight for me.  I am strong enough now to have my dental on Thursday.  It will be so good to get those bad teeth taken out.  Clearly I am feeling good and so much happier.

2/14/16:  Good news, I have gained 8 pounds and now up to 43 pounds.  Hopefully I can have my dental soon as I have some really bad teeth to be taken care of.

1/16/16: Well in spite of eating 4 cups of food per day I have lost 2 pounds. Therefore I couldn’t have my dental. Now I’m getting really fattening food which I really like and all the cookies I want.

Twinkle Christmas

 

12/13/15: All dressed up for Santa and eating a few of his cookies also. I went to the vet this week for my bloodwork and to find out if I can have a dental. The teeth that I do have are completely incased in plaque/tarter. They also found hair wrapped around some of them and boy did it stink when removed. Doing great here and please keep me in your prayers.

12/5/15: Wow do I love being her where there is plenty of food and a warm blanket to snuggle up with. I get around great and can run circles around the other seniors here. Buzz keeps chomping his teeth at me and there is no doubt he is making fun of me because I don’t have front teeth. However he can’t catch me and much faster than him. I am the cutest, little thing who can’t hear much so I just follow the other dogs.

11/27/15: I was picked up as a stray by the animal shelter. I’m a tiny, smooth collie, senior girl at only 37 pounds but do need to gain a few. The rescue is guessing me to be about 11 years old. They caught a picture of me yawning and you can see I don’t have many front teeth. I have my back teeth and that is the ones that really count. The rescue would like a permanent foster home for me. This is where the rescue will pay for my medical needs and all you have to do is love me.

4/30/16: This has to be the greatest day of my life and I’m going home with Seana & John. They fell in love with my quiet, gentle nature and knew I would work out great on the farm with the other critters. What a long way I have come from being severely matted and covered with ticks to being so loved and cared for. Thanks everyone who helped to make this wonderful home possible for me.

4/22/16: Sure glad to be here at the rescue and know I am in good hands now. When I was picked up as a stray my coat was so badly matted it had to be shaved. My body sure feels a lot better now that air can get to my skin. The rescue folks are guessing me to be between 5 and 6 years old and I weigh 45 pounds. I get along with humans and all animals, cats, dogs, birds and whatever you have. Please check back to see my progress as the rescue folks get to know me.

4/30/16: Going to my new home today with Theresa and this handsome fellow, MaKeene. We made the 6 hour trip safely and now I am getting use to my new surroundings. There are lots of great things to chew on here and I found a pig ear right away. MaKeen isn’t much interested in chew things but does like to play fetch. Being a lady I would rather chew than fetch so this is going to work out just fine. Thanks everyone for helping me to find this great home.

4/8/16: Hi, my name is Lacey and I am a 4 year old, blue merle collie girl.. I came into rescue with Cruz because our owner has a debilitating disease and just could not care for us any longer. We both were very much loved and know this is so sad for him. I am housetrained, leash trained, anxious to please and know my basic commands. I’m great with all humans, other dogs, strangers and cats. I enjoy going for walks, rides and if you talk sweet to me I will talk back. Next week I will be going for my spay and a bath. Please check back to see how I am doing.

Thank you Karen Creager for helping with my medical cost.

4/30/16: This is the day I have been waiting for and going home with the Jenkins family. They understand I will need the enzymes to help me digest my food the rest of my life. This is my new pal Chandler and we hit it off right away. I love to snuggle and found me a spot on the couch to hang out with my people. I have made myself right and home and fitting in fine here. Thanks everyone for helping with my medical needs and finding me this great family.

4/2/16:  Doing great on the enzymes and these rescue folks are so happy to see that my poop is normal.  I’m not as hungry as I use to be since my body is getting the nutrients it needs.

3/18/16: Well the doctor figured out why I am so skinny and not gaining any weight. Can you imagine always being hungry no matter how much you eat? They ran a test and found out I have Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency. This basically means my pancreas does not produce enough enzymes for me to digest food and most just gets passed undigested. I will probably always need the enzymes and be on a gastrointestinal dog food. I have already started and get 1 teaspoon of the powder added to my food. The cost is about $125 per month since I am eating twice per day. With the help of the enzymes I can live a very normal life and I believe a lot of humans also have this problem. Once I’m not starving anymore I should start to put on some weight. In spite of having cow patties for poop I have never had an accident in the house.

3/10/16: Howdy folks, I am a 2 year old collie girl in rescue because my people are going through very hard times and have to move where they cannot take me. They wanted to do the right thing for me and let me come to the rescue where I very much enjoy playing with the others here. I am housetrained and know how to sit. I need to gain some weight at only 40 pounds but I really enjoy exercising so it isn’t easy to put it on.

Thank you Deborah Showalter, Sylvia Montgomery, Edward Brown, George Jensen, Sue Bittner and Rita Wilson for caring about me.

 

Cruz (Adopted)

Cruz & Kim

 

4/30/16: I’m going home today with Kim and I get to be the only dog getting all the attention. Now if you are wondering if I will miss Lacey the answer is no. I’ve had 4 years of that woman bossing me around and getting all the petting. I have found me a nice spot on the couch here and later Kim and I will go for a nice walk around the neighborhood. We live about 10 minutes from the rescue and can visit anytime. Yep this is the life for me and we will do just fine together.

 

 

 

 

 

Cruz 3

 

4/16/16: Just as they said I was neutered this week and had a bath. I’m a quiet kind of guy that rarely barks and enjoy watching what is going on around me. This week I am learning to take treats gently and I do love food.

We both were very much loved and know this is so sad for him. I am housetrained and know my basic commands. I’m great with all humans, other dogs, strangers and cats. I enjoy going for walks, rides in the car and belly rubs. Next week I will be going for my neuter and a bath. Please check back to see how I am doing.

Timmy (Adopted)

Timmy & David - Copy

 

4/8/16: David has adopted from the rescue before and when his collie passed came out to visit the ones available for adoption. The one he chose would go to work with him every day just as his other dog had done. After meeting all of us he went home to think about it but it wasn’t long before he called back and would like to adopt the little marching man, Timmy. My first day at the office very little work was done by the employees as I was getting all the attention. They say I bring joy to everyone I meet with my happy personality. I run around freely until I decide to lay anywhere and take a nap. Oh I know I have found the right person with David and us guys will be just fine. Thanks everyone who helped make this possible for me.

3/19/16: Yesterday we went to the vet for some bloodwork which was perfect and Dr. Tart is going to call a specialist about my condition to see if anything can be done to help me. You see my front legs do bend but my brain doesn’t seem to know how to do this so I will with stiff legs, goose-stepping. All you have to do is call “Timmy” and I will come marching. This makes it hard for me to go up steps because I fall backwards. However I have mastered the tile floors with no problem. I am completely housetrained and will let you know if I have to go outside. The collies and the westie here are very kind and play gentle with me.

3/12/16: Glad to meet you folks and I am a one year old, eleven pound Shetland Sheepdog fellow. I was rescued by a very nice lady who called the rescue. You see I have Cerebellar Hypoplasia which is a disorder where the cerebellum of the brain has not fully formed. There are various causes such as bacterial or viral infections, poisoning, injury or malnutrition. It will not get worse but will not get better either and it basically means I walk funny. Actually I look like I am prancing when I go around the yard. Slippery floors are hard for me and not good with stairs. However since I am so small giving me a lift shouldn’t be a problem. I am good with cats, other dogs, rides in the car and on the leash.  If you would like to see a movie of me just click on this link

The love just keeps coming and thank you so much Debra Shuman, Gordana Kosutic and Lizabeth Meyer for helping this little man.

 

Temper (Adopted)

4/8/16: This has really been a big week for me with getting my spay, dental and another bath. Did I mention I was sprayed by a skunk. The smell had mostly worn off until the groomer wet me down and boy was she surprised. Smelling nice now on the way home we stopped at Joyce and Bob’s house to meet then and the cat. I was having such a good time with all the petting and attention we all decided I was a perfect fit in the Nelson home. So folks I have finally found a home with people who will love me and know how lucky I am. Thanks everyone who helped to make this possible for me.

4/2/16: I just arrived here at the rescue and would like to thank all the folks who helped me on my journey. Although a very long trip I rode great in the car. Things are a bit confusing right now but the others here are making me welcome. I am a 5 year old collie girl who weighs about 60 pounds. The animal shelter picked me up as a stray and this was my second being at the shelter. The first time my owners came to pick me up but since we didn’t have a fence I left again. My coat was horribly matted and covered with fleas. The lady who pulled me from the shelter brushed out all the mats and treated me for the fleas. I am feeling so much better and know I am on my way to a better life with people who will take care of me. I’m a very sweet girl who likes other dogs and cats.

Thank you Gordana Kosutic and Kimberly Luddington for helping with my medical needs.

Yep I have hit the good life and found my family.  Thanks all who helped to make this possible for me.

2/27/16:  I don’t mind playing in the yard all by myself and will throw the toy 10 feet in the air to run after it.  When I get tired of doing that I roll the big ball all around the yard.  However I don’t care about toys if you are out with me and all about humans.

2/6/16:  Well this week I went for my neuter and not sure that was necessary.  I absolutely adore humans and have a strong desire to please.

1/30/16: Here I am at the collie rescue and thank you folks so much for taking me. After I was picked up as a stray by the animal shelter, Judy & Steve pulled me and drove me all the way to rescue. I am about a three year old collie mix fellow who weighs 62 pounds which is a good weight for me. There are lessons to learn here and I have mastered sit and shake so far. Doing pretty good on the leash and great with the other dogs. Heck I don’t mind the cats and they are fine with me. I am full of personality and will make you laugh. When I bark it is a really strange, quiet sound and not loud like the others here. Got all my vaccinations today and next week I will be going for my neuter. I took some pictures so you could see all about me.

Thank you Nancy Gooding, Susan Huneycutt, Chris Hillhouse, Terri Cheema, Ruth Cummins, George Jensen, Judy and Steve for helping with my medical cost.

3/21/16: Went to my new home with the Deborah and Jerry. Met the neighbors and they tell me I have truly hit the good life. We spent the afternoon relaxing on the deck and then I went to sleep on my bed for the night. Met the grandkids and they say “Fozzy is the greatest dog ever!” I just ignore the cats and they ignore me, lol. We’re working on some simple commands and going to sign up for obedience classes next week. I am so happy to become a part of the Miller family and thanks everyone who helped to make this possible for me.

3/18/16: Pleased to meet you folks, I am a 3 year old tri color fellow that might have just a tad of something else besides collie in my blood. However there is so much collie people would never figure out what that other might be. I was hanging around at an abandoned house with some other strays when a nice lady took me in and made sure I came to the rescue. I love to zoom around the yard and very athletic. So much so that I can jump a 4 foot fence so will need a higher one. I’m only interested in going over the fence if my people are on the other side and want to be with them. In the house I’m a real couch potato and love bug!  No problem with housetraining for me and a smart fellow. I get along with most other dogs but really prefer the ladies.  Everyone says I have the cutest ears.

3/18/16;  Feeling good and wanted to show you a picture of my beautiful blue eyes.  I’m going to go ahead and toot my own horn letting you know I am the best collie here and will do most anything asked of me.  I would make a wonderful therapy girl.

3/5/16: Well this week I went to the vet for my vaccinations and a much needed bath. Then they brushed and combed my hair for hours which I did not mind at all. Please excuse my tail as must of it had to be shaved.  I’m a little shy until I get to know people and like to put my head in the crook of your arm. I’m a sweet all right and ready for my new home.

2/27/16: Hello folks, my name is Lilly and I am a 4 year old collie, mix girl. Dad passed away a year ago and mom recently joined him so I came to the collie rescue. I like the other dogs and cats are ok with me. I am housetrained, up to date on vaccinations and spayed. Enjoy going for walks and great on the leash. I do have some mats that will have to be shaved out and will get my bath this week.  I am a little overweight at 55 pounds and need to lose a few.

3/10/16: I’m here under very sad circumstances with my person having cancer. She wanted to make sure I find a loving home before she has to leave. There is no doubt I have been very much loved and cared for over my three years. However I am a bit overweight at 81 pounds but will get rid of the excess quickly as I enjoy running and playing with the others here. While I am not excited about this new diet plan I know I need to slim down. I am housetrained and just an all around good guy.

2/29/16: Well I have definitely hit the jackpot and going home with the Porterfield’s. They have adopted several collies over the years and fell in love with me when I showed them how smart I am. Diane will take me to therapy dog training so I can read with the school children which I will enjoy very much. Dennis and I are going to do guy stuff like camping and hiking in the woods. I sure do appreciate everyone who help to make this wonderful home possible for me.

2/25/16: Thank goodness this rescue takes collie mixes when they can and pulled me from the animal shelter. My people got a divorce and I was living in a car with one of them for a while. There was no doubt I was very much loved and I know they did the best they could under the circumstances. At six years old I am as sweet as they come and a smart fellow also with knowing sit, shake and come. I’m at the vet today getting neutered and my teeth cleaned. I like the other dogs and get along with everyone.

 

Thank you so much Ann Bishop for helping with my medical needs.

2/29/16: The Senterfeit’s came today to take me home and I know how lucky I am to have them. They will do training with me and I will be very much loved. Daisy the collie will be my new pal and she will teach me the things I need to know as I grow up. Thanks everyone who helped to make this possible for me. No doubt I will keep them busy.

2/27/16: My owner thought it best to find me another home because the older dogs were beating me up and didn’t like me. I’m only a 4 month old, little fellow who is really smart with already knowing sit. The collie rescue had some folks picked out for me and I will be going to my forever home on Monday.

12/29/15: Today I went home with these lovely ladies. Michele brought me a new coat that fits and doesn’t make me wear that hat. We all rode home together nicely and once here I picked out a spot for myself and a chew bone. Michele is a vet and I will get to go to work with her and the girls some days. Yep, I’m going to be just fine here and thanks everyone who helped me on my journey.

11/27/15: I didn’t mind going to the vet for that bath and dental but did they really have to neuter me? Without my fur I have been pretty cold when I go outside and shivering. Just look at my new coat with a matching hat and a hunting I will go. I’m going to need a gun to go with the outfit and a ride to the vet where I can let them know how I feel about that neuter thing. Due to my age the rescue would like a permanent foster home for me. This is where the rescue will pay for my medical needs and all you have to do is love me and my ensemble.

11/19/15:  WHOAH, I Feel Good! So good, so good that I’m naked. Just a little James Brown there for you folks because I feel like dancing. I have been wearing that feces, matted coat for so many years. I had forgotten what it feels like to have the air on my skin and a clean body. It is just amazing and I feel so much younger today. Thanks everyone who has helped me.

11/13/15:  Came in today with Jazzy because our owner could no longer care for us. At 12 years old I am a bit confused right now but the other collies have let me know I am in a safe place and everything will be fine. Please check back to see my progress.

Thank you The Budde Family, Kimberly Luddington, Gordana Kosutic, Under The Maples, Mary Witul, Karen Creager, Pam Barron, Kim Rettberg and George Jensen for proving old collies are not forgotten here.

 

Cherise (Permanent Foster Home)

Cherise & Borman's

12/22/15: After reading over John’s resume and meeting them, I have decided to go home with the Borman’s. John and Peggy have adopted many senior collies over the years and I know what a lucky girl I am. We made it back to the hills safely and I have met Sweetie Pie the other dog here. This morning we had a little BACON in our breakfast and I knew I was in the right place. Thanks everyone who helped to make this great home for me possible.  Just look how happy we are.

 

 

 

 

 

Cherise Christmas

12/19/15: Cherise Navidad, Cherise Navidad, I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas from the bottom of my heart. Makes you want to sing huh? Doing great here and no problem with house training. Just a senior lady looking for a home where I can live out my years with love.

11/21/15: Well here I am at the rescue at the age of 11 and no longer wanted by my people. I didn’t do anything wrong and it seems they are to busy for me and that has been the case for a long time now. Any way I am happy to be here and adjusting. My coat got a good grooming but some of it did have to be cut. I am housetrained and a very gentle, loving girl. The rescue would like a permanent foster home for me. This is where the rescue will pay for my medical needs and all you have to do is love me.

Thank you Kim Rettberg, Deborah Showalter, Karen Creager, George Jensen II for caring about us seniors.
