10/14/14: This month I just turned five years old.  My folks got divorced and had to move to an apartment so they contacted the collie rescue.  They loved me very much and in fact I am a bit overweight.  That will come off quickly as I am having a great time running and playing with the others.  I am housetrained, crate trained and love everyone.

10/14/14: Pleased to meet you and since the rescue doesn’t know my name they have gave me this new, fancy one.  I am a two year old collie fellow who was wondering down the road and animal control picked me up.  Thank you Mikki and Iris for getting me out and giving me a ride to the rescue.  Haven’t been here long but so far I have showed them how I can sit and shake.  I’m getting along great with the others here and please check back to see how I am doing.

10/2/14: I’m Zeta the new girl in town.  The rescue is guessing me to be about eight years old.  Today I am at the vet getting my teeth cleaned and my vaccinations.  I am the sweetest girl you will ever meet and when you talk to me I will howl for you.  I am housetrained, enjoy rides in the car and love everyone although a bit shy until I get to know you.

Well thank you so much Ann Moyle and Nancy Covey for caring about me.




Misty 6 Misty 5











10/14/14: Last week I went to the vet to have my teeth cleaned and also a bath.  The volunteers will come on Saturday to give me a good brushing which I’m not to fond of.  Up until now I have always pretty much done whatever I wanted and starting to learn about rules.  Since I am a collie with a desire to please learning pretty quickly.

Misty and Bob

10/4/14: Just arrived today and my name is Misty, a six year old, tri color collie girl who is housetrained.  I’m getting along great with the other dogs and thank you for taking me in.  I have included a picture of me with my person, Bob who loved me very much.  However he knew he could no longer care for me and contacted the rescue so I could find a new home.  Sometimes love means having to say goodbye.












Thank you Sandra Schuck, Chris Eck, Stephanie Smith, Elizabeth Ferrell, Sharon Ross and Kim Moore for caring about me.




Jack 10
















Jack 11 Jack 12











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 Margie Hoffman, Kimberlee Rettberg, Sharon Ross, Lisa Dalkey, Rebecca Fox, Chris Hillhouse , Barbara Minakakis, Bobby Chastain and Kim E Moore for caring about me.


Joe Joe



9/20/14: Look folks I am growing hair!  My white is whiter and my black is darker.  I have a new smile on my face and getting healthier every day.

Joe Joe 16 Joe Joe 15













9/6/14:  Went this week for a neutering, dental and another bath.  I can’t tell you how much better I am feeling these days with my skin healing up and just look how much whiter my coat is.  There is no doubt I have had a hard life in the past but my new life is ahead of me and I’m looking forward to it.

Joe Joe 11 Joe Joe 10











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.

Mila 15

9/20/14: I’m enjoying playing with the other dogs here at the rescue but sure miss those puppies.  Doing great on my medicine which is very inexpensive and they say It will take about a month to see a difference.  No matter, I am full of energy and love everyone.

Mila 11 Mila 10











8/21/14:  Looking better here and started on medicine the rescue folks will supply for me when I am adopted.  Monday I went to be spayed so I have to be calm and can’t play with the puppies for a week.

Mila 4 Mila











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.


Beau (Courtesy Listing)

BEAU at home!!! BEAU with Flowers











Neutered Male, 6 years old and 80 pounds
Meet Beau. Our loveable Border Collie/Collie mix. We are not sure what breed of dog contributed to his large size but we don’t care, he is a wonderful pup, so easy to love and to have around. He is good with all people, dogs and even good with cats. Beau came into rescue with some health issues but they are all fixed now and he is good to go. He has a lot of space to run and play at his foster home. Beau does spend a lot of time outside as he spends most of his day out in the fresh air with his 5 foster brothers and sisters. He also enjoys playtime as he will chase a ball- he probably won’t give it back but he does like to chase it!! Beau enjoys toys but does tend to tear up stuffed things. So, we are careful what we do give him to play with. Tough Kong’s are best and he does love squeaky toys!
The only thing we have to be careful of is food. He is a bit protective of his food so we solve that by feeding him alone in the bathroom with the door shut. We can give him treats while other dogs are around him so this is not a serious issue. He does have a large appetite but we feed him once a day at night. He has also lost about 10 lbs since he has been in rescue (he now has a waist!).
Beau would be a great family dog. He is totally housebroken and just loves to be with his people. Beau forms attachments easily. He enjoys quiet evenings watching TV, rides in the car, visits to the dogpark, and chasing tennis balls. He is always interested in going for a walk.
Beau is being fostered in Franklinton, NC. Contact Nancy Solum at if you have any interest or questions about adopting Beau.
Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescue dog. They are the BEST!!


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

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.

9/20/14: I have reached my new home in New Orleans with the Perkin’s Family.  I knew this was the life for me the minute I met William and now have my very own boy who I will take very good care of.  We have another collie fellow here and two westies to play with.  Dad has already taken me to the café and we had crab beignet and rillettes of pork shoulder.  Thanks everyone that helped to make this possible for me.

Kasey 7 Kasey 5











9/16/14:  At the vet today getting my teeth cleaned and a bath.

9/12/14: Hello people, my name is Kasey and I am a seven year old collie fellow.  I’m a good size collie at 80 pounds the way they use to breed us.  You probably noticed that hotspot on my side where my fur has been shaved so it can dry out.  See if us dogs can’t scratch an itch we lick it until it causes a bare skin, raw area.  Most anything can cause it like a bug bite or any irritation that itches.  My people took me to the vet where many expensive unneeded treatments was recommended.  They could not afford all this and made the decision to take me to the animal shelter.  I have always been well cared for and loved.  I have wonderful house manners and just a great boy to be around.

Thank you Jennifer Hitney for helping with my medical cost.

9/20/14: Just when I thought being in rescue was pretty bad after going to the vet for a dental and a small growth removal, JoAnne comes to take me home.  Yep folks I’m adopted and when we get home will meet my new, soon to be friend Alec.  He too was adopted from the collie rescue.  I would like to thank all the folks that helped to make this possible and a special thank you to my friends at Hope Crossing Animal Hospital.  Don’t worry about me I’m on my way to a good life.

Chloe 3




9/12/14: Hi there my name is Chloe and I am an eight year old collie girl.  When my person move out of state she boarded me at the vet but she left me there for eighteen months.  The folks at the vet contacted the collie rescue and I was finally released to leave.  They were very good to me there and I of course had special privileges.  You can imagine my surprise when I arrived and saw all the other dogs that are just like me.  I’m having so much fun just running and playing freely in the big yard.  So much in fact it is hard to get a picture of me standing still.  I have impeccable house manners and know most commands.  My coat was shaved earlier in the year but it will grow back.  I am so looking forward to having a home of my own.

Thank you Kim E Moore, Ann Moyle and Gail Von Gonten for donating to help with my care.

Dazzle 1 Dazzle











9/15/14: Hello everyone my name is Dazzle and I am a 3 month old, 20 pound collie mix puppy boy.  I am the sweetest little man and doing great with my training.  I sleep quietly in my crate all night long and then I go out to potty.  The other collies here play with me and are teaching me the things I will need to know.  My owner no longer wanted me so he just let me go.  I went straight to the neighbors house and she called the collie rescue.

This puppy boy is learning people care and thank you Frank & Louise Carney and Stephanie Smith.

9/18/14: Finally my medical work is complete and I am healthy enough to go home with Cindy and Walt.  Tomorrow we are headed to the sunshine state where I will begin my new life with folks that love me.  What a long way I have come from 38 pounds to 50 over the last 3 months but they waited patiently getting to know me more through updates.  I was so happy to meet them today and love them already. I just can’t believe this is happening and how do you thank the many people for saving your live and making this wonderful home with the Shober’s possible for me.



Jorge 10Jorge 6









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.

Jorge 2 Greg 2









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.

I am so bless these great folks are helping with my medical needs:  Deborah Sullivan, Debbie Olsakovsky, Susan Ellis, Kimberlee Rettberg, Carolyn McCullough, Maryann Pelletier, Caroline Mclean, Anna Craig, Terri L.

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 Nancy Covey, Jennifer Hitney, Rebecca Fox, Beverly Sullivan , Karen L. Roth and Pamela January for caring about this little man.
