5/21/16: Hello folks, my name is Nadine and I will be turning 3 years old next month. A smooth collie girl and just like the rough collies without all the matting. My people purchased me as a puppy but as I grew up I became to much for them as they were elderly. I’m a healthy, study girl at 68 pounds and that is a good weight for me. I am housetrained and crate trained.

5/21/16: First I would like to give a paw up to the folks who are helping with my medical needs. I have a long way to go with these heartworms that need to be treated and then will be neutered. I am a sweet, kind, older gentleman and not really much of a rambler. The strange thing is people start singing this song when they say my name. I’m housetrained, learned the doggie door with a quickness and Miss Jean lets me sleep on a bed in her room. Thank you folks for taking me in and helping me.

5/12/16: They call me The Rambler because I was picked up as a stray. It was probably a good thing I come to the rescue since I have light heartworms that will need to be treated and was never neutered. The rescue folks are guessing me to be between 8 and 10. I am a very sweet fellow who only wants to lay my head in your lap and be a companion. I get a long great with the other dogs and cats are ok with me also. 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.  If you would like to help with my medical needs just hit that donate button below.

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.

5/21/16:  Woo Hoo, I have lost 5 pounds and feeling so much lighter. While that may not sound like much to you, for a dog it is a lot of weight to carry around. I am getting up and down much easier and can still lie like a puppy doing frog legs. We found out my thyroid was a bit low causing the weight gain and I am on medicine now. It doesn’t cost very much and I just eat it with my food. I’m a sweet girl that get along with all the others and cats would be fine with me. Check back to see me when I am ready for my bikini.

Syrinx Syrinx 2

 

 

 

 

 

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.

4/16/16: Paisley 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. We have been spay and vaccinated.

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.

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

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.

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.

I have met my new mom and my new friend Bacall who is 4 years old. I think I might be a bit much for her because she keeps asking mom when I am leaving. She will eventually put her paw down and teach me manners. Thanks everyone for my new family.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
