8/29/14:  Hello folks my name is Landon and I am a 2 year old collie fellow.  I spent most of my life in a kennel and so happy to be free.  This has really been a busy week for me with getting a bath and neutered.  Doing great with the others and a loving fellow.  I’m going to have a beautiful coat when I am healthy again.

8/31/14:  Feeling a bit stronger and getting around much better.  However I have this large fatty tumor on my right shoulder and it is causing my leg to hurt.  I will be going to the vet on Tuesday so see if anything can be done.

My new name is Dublin and I am a senior fellow probably around ten years old.  I was so miserable I decided to just stand in the middle of the road and wait for a car to come.  However it happened the car was being driven by a wonderful lady who realized the bad shape I was in and she picked me up.  Immediately we were off to the groomer where the many years of mats were shaved off.  They removed so many ticks, fleas and some maggots were also living under there.  It is so wonderful to have air getting to my skin and didn’t remember what it was like.  Then we were off to the vet where I was vaccinated, heartworm tested (negative), wormed and given treatment for fleas.  The vet was wonderful and donated their services to help me.  In just one day I had received more love and care than I had known in years.  My savior knew she could not keep me because she was going off to collage so she drove me three hours to the collie rescue.  By golly things just keep getting better and I have my very own orthopedic bed to lay on with a blanket to keep me warm.  How could all this be possible?  Maybe I was hit by a car because I surely am in Heaven now.  Lee, thank you so very much for stopping that day and taking the time to make a difference in the life of this old fella.  My new life started that day.

The love just keeps coming and thank you Mary Jane Checchi, Pam Barron, Chris Hillhouse, Nancy Gooding, Rebecca Fox, Kimberlee Rettberg, Carol Lightcap, Anne White, Ann Bishop, Katherine Rahman, Lee Alexander, Deborah Sullivan, Susan Huneycutt and Debbie Olsakovsky for helping with my care.

8/22/14:  While I was being neutered they discovered both my ears have infection so I have medicine for that.  I’m a small collie fellow at only 45 pounds and that is a good weight for me.

8/21/14:  Hello folks my name is Jack and I am a six year old collie fellow at 50 pounds.  Unfortunately I am at the vet today being neutered and they sure don’t wasted any time here.  I am in rescue because my people built a new house and there wasn’t enough room for me since the yard was smaller.  I am a friendly kind of fellow that loves everyone and great with the other dogs.  I do need to let you know that I am blind but I have very good perception of where things are and do not bump into them.  I am great on the leash and will hop right in the car to go for a ride.

You folks are wonderful and thank you Lisa Dalkey, Rebecca Fox, Chris Hillhouse , Barbara Minakakis, Bobby Chastain and Kim E Moore for caring about me.

8/16/14:  Howdy and thank you collie rescue folks for taking me in.  I am a sheltie mix fellow between 5 and 6 years old who was picked up by the shelter as a stray.  I am a bit plump and they have put me on a diet and sadly I have a light case of heartworms that will need to be treated. However I am already neutered and won’t have to go through that again.  I have a very sweet personality and get along with the other dogs.  A bit confused right now since everything here is new.  Today I had a brushing and a bath which I didn’t mind at all.  Please check back to see how I am doing as the rescue folks get to know me.  If you would like to help with my medical cost just hit the donate button below.

Thank you Rebecca Fox, Beverly Sullivan , Karen L. Roth and Pamela January for caring about this little man.

8/16/14:  Had a bath and I am a little whiter now but it will take many more to get me clean.  I am on antibiotics for the scabs I have on my back.  The rescue folks put some soothing ointment on them so they feel better now.  I will be going to the vet next week for bloodwork and a check up.  The really good news is that I am heartworm negative.  I am so happy to be here and one day I will look like that puppy again.

Joe Joe puppy

8/15/14:  The first picture is of me when I was a puppy and clearly much loved.  The other two pictures are of me now at eight years old and very much neglected.  I’m not sure what happened that they stopped caring about me over the years.  My owner took me to the animal shelter because they lost their job and it was actually my lucky day.  I’m here with the rescue now where I will receive the love and care I have no known for a long time.  Tomorrow I will get a good brushing and a much needed bath.  Next week I will get my vacations, be heartworm tested and neutered.  I’m on my way to a better life and please check back to see the changes as I progress.  If you would like to help with my care just hit that donated button below.

7/27/14:  Hello folks my name is Mila and I am a ten month old collie girl.  You may have noticed what looks like scaring on my face and I have Dermatomyositis.  You might want to do some reading up on this.  However it does not mean I cannot live to my senior years and it is possible it will go away as I grow.  My parents should never be bred because they carry the condition.  Any way I am a very sweet, active little girl at about 40 pounds.  I was in the animal shelter and folks came to get me out.  I am doing great with housetraining, crate training and love the other dogs.  The cat would be ok with me also.

Thank you so much Nancy Covey, Ann Moyle, Tommy Welborn, Ruth Cummins, Pamela January, Nancy Gooding, Hillhouse, Rebecca Fox, Pam Barron, Pamela January, Kimberlee Rettberg, Michele Brane, Carol Lightcap for caring about me.

6/29/14: My name is Coby at 10 weeks of age and I am the one of the seven puppies taken to the animal shelter.  Our mom was a tri color collie and papa was a, well we don’t know what breed he was.  The folks had mom spayed and she is going to stay with them.  Right now I weight about 12 pounds and will be normal collie size. I may look larger in the picture because they are taken at eye level but you can still hold me in your lap.  I’m very outgoing and a confident little fellow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sochi (Courtesy Listing)

Sochi Sochi 2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SOCHI ~5-6 years old.  Good with older considerate children, dogs and cats.  Apartment appropriate.  Please visit our website at http://www.gsdrescue.org/animals/detail?AnimalID=6792644

Sochi is a fabulous blend of blue merle collie and German shepherd. His coloring makes him look older than he is however his pearly white teeth and sassy attitude tell me he is between 5 and 6 years old. He was found cowering along a highway loaded with fleas, missing lots of hair, skinny and scared. GSRA to the rescue!!! Sochi has obviously been abused. He would cower if voices were raised, regardless if it is directed at him or not. I explained to him that I will disagree with a behavior and correct him, but I would never hurt or hit him. He has accepted this and no more cowering. He’s moving on!  YAY! Since being in rescue he has learned how to live with other dogs and cats. Sochi is crate and housetrained. He is fine loose on the floor all night but crated when I am not home. He just wants to be near you. He is an expert couch rider but the vet says to be sure he gets regular walks and exercise to keep him limber. Sochi loves to go for rides in the car and can be quite vocal about his excitements and boy does he love to play tug with soft toys. He tries to be gentle and will “drop” something on the first request. Sochi has grown fond of his foster pack but does not play much with them. He saves his bountiful energy for games of tug, fetch and jump with the soft stuffed toy. I wouldn’t recommend him as a playmate for a younger dog. Sochi tolerates and kind of likes his foster mates but that’s about it. I haven’t had him around small dogs. Adult people are Sochi’s “thing”. That said, I would not recommend him to a home with small children. He may not have the patience, but teens and adults are fine. With a lot of love, a good diet, a calm leader, Sochi will bloom into a confident, happy dog.

7/15/14:  Would you just look at me now that I have had a brushing and a much needed bath.  I was great for it all and enjoyed every minute of spa day.  I am getting lots of calories so I will gain some weight but still eat as though it might be my last meal.  Henley and I never fight over food or try to take the others.  I am doing great with the other dogs and getting along fine.

7/4/14:  What a wonderful holiday for these four year old fellows and truly a time to celebrate.  You see yesterday our owner took Henley and I to the animal shelter and it was the best day of our life.  We are about 20 pounds under weight and have gone hungry for a long time.  We were covered in fleas, ticks, mats and dirt.  The animal shelter vaccinated and wormed us then called CRC.  Cheryl came to pick us up and she didn’t care that we were dirty with fleas letting us ride in her van any way.   Greg and Robin came today to groom collies and we absolutely loved the attention.  We have truly hit the good life with so much food here and people to love us.  Unfortunately both of us are heartworm positive and will need to have treatment after we get healthy.  If you would like to help us on our way to a better life just hit that donate button and thank you for making this new life possible for us.

8/30/14:  Well guess who wormed their way into Miss Jean’s heart and I will be staying here at the rescue.  I understand my job will be to make the new collies coming in welcome and let them know their life is going to get better than they could ever imagine. I always knew I was staying and it was Miss Jean that was the slow one.  I make her laugh with the puppy like things I do and her other dogs have accepted me into the pack.  Yep I’m one lucky man and now that I am adopted can make myself comfortable.

Buddy 12

 

 

8/19/14:  I love toys but will never hurt them.  I made the mistake of taking Mr. Duck through the doggie door and the puppies took him away from me.  I can do pretty good but can’t keep up with them.

8/16/14:  Hello my name is Buddy and they said I am ten years old however the rescue folks think I may be younger.  Clearly I have no hip problems and still lay down like a puppy.  I’m a sweet fellow that always likes to be by your side.  Completely housetrained, great on the leash and love everyone even the cat.  My coat was shaved earlier in the summer and now starting to grow back.  An outgoing friendly kind of guy who enjoys doing whatever you want to do.  If you are looking for a buddy named Buddy then I’m your man.  Due to my age I am looking for a permanent foster home.  This is where the rescue will pay for my approved medical needs and all you have to do is love me.
