2/28/15: Hi there and I am a collie mix girl about 3 years old and 45 pounds. You probably noticed I don’t have much coat and that is because I recently had babies. Having children sure does take a toll on the body. Anyway I understand that will not be happening anymore because I am to be spayed this week. I was picked up as a stray and taken to the animal shelter and what a lucky day that was for me when the rescue folks came to get me. I’m on my way to a better life and thank you folks so much for giving me this opportunity. Please check back to see my progress as the rescue folks get to know me.

Wow, people care and thank you Ruth Cummins, Pam Barron and Chris Hillhouse for donating to help me.

2/21/15: I just arrived here to the rescue today and would like to thank the folks who made this possible for me. My folks didn’t care much about me but the neighbor did and she was feeding me over the fence. She finally convinced them to let me go and contacted the collie rescue. You can imagine how amazed I was when I arrived and met others just like me. I am about 2 years old and a real collie fellow at 75 pounds. I understand I will be neutered this coming week and will then be ready for my new home. Please check back to see how I am doing as the rescue folks get to know more about my personality.

Wow I have really hit the good life and Debbie Olsakovsky and Kim E Moore have donated to help with my medical needs.

2/26/15:  Had a great time out playing in the snow today and doing great here at the rescue.  I enjoy playing with the other dogs and they have treats here.  Oh yea and I stole Fancy’s toy, ha ha.  The rescue folks are guessing me to be six years old.

 2/20/15:  Home from the vet and had a bath while I was there.  Sadly we did find out I have heartworms that will need to be in the next couple of weeks.  If you would like to help with my medical cost just hit that donate button and say it is for me.

2/18/15: That isn’t a football under my chin and a huge mat where I haven’t been brushed. The animal shelter picked me up as a stray and that sure was my lucky day. The rescue folks came to get me and immediately cut that mat out. I am a male, white collie with a sable head at about 7 years old. Tonight I am at the vet getting neutered and a dental. While I was glad to see that mat go don’t think the other is really necessary.

Oh my gosh Georgeanne Cheng, Kim Rettberg, Sandra Schuck, Jane Friedman Rankins, Ryan Pifer, Audrey Sumner, Mary Witul and Gordana Kosutic have donated to help with my heartworm treatment and thank you so much.

2/26/15:  I played out in the snow all day and got these snowballs on my feet and legs.  No problem I ate them and went out to get more since I have mastered the doggie door.

2/13/15: Wanted to show everyone my favorite toy so whoever adopts me can get one. This week I have learned to go in and out the doggie door and doing great here. I made it my job to play with the puppies while they were here and take care of them. I’m doing great here at the rescue and enjoy all the people that come to visit.

2/7/15: My name is Fancy and I am an eighteen month old collie girl. I have perfect house manners and know most commands. Great on the leash, like rides in the car and get along with the other dogs fine. So by now you are wondering why I am at the rescue if I am such a good dog, huh? Per my original owner I have explosive diarrhea about every six weeks. I have been on special food and taken to the vet for it many times however nothing seems to work. After the last time it happened and I pretty much messed up the carpet in every room she brought me to the rescue. She loved me very much and hoping the rescue folks can help me with this. Since I arrived I have been put on Activia each day with my grain free kibble. Jerry the collie that use to be here had the same problem and Activia worked for him. Miss Jean watches my poop very carefully to make sure it is solid. So far so good but we are only on week two.

Thank you Sylvia Montgomery and Under The Maples for donating to help with my care.

2/14/15:  Sadly my heartworm test came back a light positive and I will be going for treatment.  Then in a month I will be spayed and no more babies for me.  Doing great here at the rescue and love being in the house.

 

 

2/7/15: I just arrived today and I am a 7-8 year old smooth, white collie girl. I belonged to a breeder who has terminal cancer and he wanted to make sure I am in a safe place. It is a bit confusing to leave the only home you have ever known but the other collies have let me know this is a great place. I’m a very sweet girl with a wonderful personality. Please check back to see my progress as the rescue folks get to know me.

Thank you so much Laura Webb, Susan Huneycutt, Victoria Hollifield, Sharon Ross, Edward Brown, Sheila Nelson and Jennifer Appetta for helping with my heartworm treatment.

1/17/15: My name is Austin and I am a 4 year old, Australian Shepherd mix fellow at 53 pounds. You probably noticed my beautiful blue eyes and that I have no tail. I came into the collie rescue with Sissy because our person will be going through cancer treatment again and she wanted to make sure we have good homes. Before dad left he use to take me all over the country with him in the big rig truck. I’m a very smart guy knowing most commands like sit and give paw. I am great on the leash and of course ride great in the car. This week I understand I will be neutered and please check back to see my progress.

Well thank you so much Bobby Chastain and Steve Jarrett for helping with my medical cost.

2/27/15: We just can’t believe our good fortune and going to our new home together. Deborah came to meet us today and we really liked her. She spent a lot of time out in the cold getting to know us and sharing treats. We weren’t real sure what was happening to us after leaving the only home we have ever know and then going to the vet where they did horrible things to us like neuter. However this is our lucky day and we are going to be very much loved with her. We made it home safely and have met the other collie boy and girl. When called to come in we just followed them right in which is great progress for us. Yep we are home and thanks to everyone that helped to make this happen for us.  Dillon & Doc

2/26/15:  Well I went to the vet where they cleaned my teeth and I got neutered.  The vet found out I have little sight and will probably eventually lose what I have.  It is a slow progress so I am able to adjust as happens.  Thanks everyone for helping me.

2/20/15: We had a great time playing in the snow and then I came in the house for the very first time in my life. It’s pretty cool once I get in here but I don’t much like the coming in part and getting use to doorways. I’m not really afraid of the sounds in the house or that vacuum. I’m headed to the vet on Tuesday for my neuter and dental which I’m really not looking forward to. Guess it has to happen so I can get ready for my new home though and I will keep practicing on those doors.  Oh and I went to the groomer where I got my very first bath and brushing.  I’m a big collie boy at about 66 pounds

2/14/15: Dillon and I are new here at the rescue, getting to know the others and made friends. You see our owner got us as puppies and we have never been out of our yard in our entire life of 8 years. We have never been to a vet or in a car so the ride here was a bit traumatizing and we have never been on a leash. All these things are new to us but we are willing to learn. Thankfully we were heartworm negative and have received our vaccinations. We will be going to the groomer this week and then on to be neutered. We are good size collies at about 70 pounds and since we have been outside all our lives have put on tremendous winder coats. Please check back to see my progress.

Thank you Gordana Kosutic, Kimberlee Rettberg, Nancy Covey, Debbie Olsakovsky, Ann Moyle, Jennifer Phillips and Thomas Jeffries for helping me on my way to a better life.

2/26/15:  At the vet they found out my gums were growing down over my teeth and I had an umbilical hernia.  These have been corrected now and I was also neutered.  I’m not so sure about ever going out the door again.

2/20/15: Big things going on here for me with going to the groomer for my very first bath and brushing. I was a very good boy and enjoyed every minute of my beauty treatment. I also got to come in the house and think this is way cool. I’m going in and out and also learned about the crate where I get special treats. Tuesday I will be going for a neuter and dental at the vet which I’m not really looking forward to but guess it has to happen. I weigh about 60 pounds and could stand to gain a few.

2/3/2015: The rescue folks were at the shelter picking up some collie mix puppies when they spied me and said they would take me also. I’m a little westie mix fellow at ten pounds but need to gain a few. I was picked up by the animal control as a stray. There is no doubt I had a home where I was loved because I am such a nice guy. I ride in the car great, good on the leash and have a very gentle nature. I very rarely bark and get along with all the other dogs.

Mom has big plans for us girls and we are going to do everything together. The best part is she has cats and I love them. I would have never have imagined such a life could be possible for me.

1/31/15:  Today I had a bath in the sink and a blow dry. This is probably the only time I will get to stand on the table.

1/27/15: I am a 2 month old, collie mix girl at 15 pounds. Just arrived here yesterday from the animal shelter and learning about the good life. Oh my goodness we have plenty of food, toys and things to chew on here. I’m catching on to how great humans can be pretty quick and they rub your belly. One day 2 adult females were dumped on a farm and they have been producing puppies which is why we are all different ages. The folks on the farm have been feeding all of us and finally managed to catch us puppies. They are going to trap our moms, have them spayed and keep them. I understand I am on my way to the good life and it sure has started off great.

Thank you Terri L. Cheema and Kimberlee Rettberg for helping with my medical cost.

2/13/15: My mom Belinda adopted from CRC many years ago and when her collie passed she wanted to give another a chance at a good home. I am very pleased to say she choose me and I’m going home with her. She recently retired and there is no doubt I will keep her busy. I understand we have a pigmy goat named Victoria who misses her collie friend. There will also be chickens and a cat for me to play with. There is no doubt I have hit the good life and thank you everyone who helped to make this possible.
