8/20/16: I was found as a stray and been on my own for a while as I am very underweight. A very nice lady took me in and called the rescue. There is so much food here and can you believe they serve it twice a day? They are guessing me to be between 4 and 6 years old and I will be going to the vet this week for a bath. One of those nasty ticks did give me lyme disease and I am on antibiotics for that. A sweet, gentle kind of guy that is very much housetrained. Please check back to see how I am doing.

Thank you Karen J Creager and George Jensen II for caring about me and helping me to get well.

8/20/16: Thank you folks for taking me, Boris, Dory and Sally into the rescue when our person became very ill. She took very good care of us but looks like she will not be coming home. I am a sweet, gentle, nine year old collie fellow great with the housetraining. This week I will be going to the vet for a checkup and a much needed bath. Please check back to see me when I have been cleaned up.

I must be in the right place and people here care.  Thank you Mary Diesen and Karen J Creager for helping with my medical needs.

8/7/16: Feeling so much better after getting a bath and medicine for my eyes. I will be going to the vet on Tuesday for my neutering and then ready for my new home. I love being in the house and no problem with the housetraining. Getting along great with the other dogs and the cat is ok also.

7/27/16: Thank goodness the shelter picked me up as a stray and no one knows how long I have been wondering on my own. My skin is in pretty bad shape, eyes are goopy and never neutered. I have no front teeth making it hard for me to pick up my food. There is no doubt I was a beauty in my day and please check back to see my progress as I am restored to good health.

So good to be here with folks who care.  Thank you Ron Cohn, Nancy Gooding, Kim E. Moore, Lizabeth Meyer, Karen J Creager, George Jensen, Carol Lightcap, Shirley Treichel, Judy Arey and Deborah Brown for helping with my medical cost.

7/23/2016: My person could no longer care for me so I was on my way to the animal shelter when the rescue stepped in. I have lived outside all my life and love this air conditioned house so much I slept for 6 hours after I arrived. My coat is matted, a bit overweight and I have a light case of heartworms that will need to be treated. Please keep me in your prayers as I adjust to this new, wonderful life.

What wonderful people to care about me.  Thank you Carol Clasen, Mary Witul, Pam Barron, Susan Huneycutt, Kimberly Luddington, Ruth Cummins, June Evans, Marian Ridge, Barbara Minakakis, Lizabeth Meyer, Karen Warren, Debbie Olsakovsky, Nancy Covey and George Jensen II for helping with my medical cost.

7/22/16: My folks were moving where they could not have a dog but I bet you have heard this story before. Anyway here I am in rescue at 10 years old and 80 pounds. I haven’t let this get me down and have a wonderful personality. Needless to say they have put me on a diet and should be easy as I really like to play. If you will rub my belly I will roll on my back and grin at you. I am housetrained, don’t need a crate, good with the other dogs and cats are ok with me.

Juno

 

Juno x-ray

 

8/1/16: It sure has been a busy week for me with getting neutered and going to the orthopedic surgeon to have my leg checked out. Turns out at some point in my life I had a femoral head osteotomy which is the removal of the “ball” part of the ball-and-socket that makes up the hip joint. My folks didn’t do the rehab with me afterwards and why I limp. This leg is a tad shorter than the other one but you wouldn’t notice. Doing great here at the rescue and enjoy playing with the other dogs.

 

Travelers

7/22/16: They call us the travelers because we were found together walking right up to Miss Jean’s house which clearly shows we are smart. She took us in and tried to find our owners but no one came forward to claim us. No real surprise there as neither of us had been neutered. I wish we could tell you our story and know you wonder if we escaped together or met up somewhere on the road. Either way we know even though we are not collies we are in a real good place where we will be well taken care of.

When we were on the road I had to walk real slow so the little man could keep up. The vet is guessing me to be between 1 and 2 years old and a nice weight of 52 pounds. I do have a slight limp on my right, back leg because of an injury when I was younger which is a little late to fix. It doesn’t slow me down any and I enjoy playing with the other dogs. I don’t even mind the cat and have the sweetest nature. They fell in love with me at the vet.

I am the little man and when we were on the road Juno the husky took care of me. The vet is guessing me to be about 2 years old and a nice weight of 11 pounds. Doing great in the house and love sleeping on the bed. Since I am so small I get carried around a lot. No problem with housetraining and the other dogs are very nice to me. A loving, little fellow who likes to snuggle and follow you around.

8/13/16: The Sabol’s are my new family and I will be going home with them on Thursday. I liked them right away and I will be the only dog with all the attention.

7/22/16: I was found as a stray the day my person lost her other dog. At six months old I had a collar imbedded in my neck and she took me in. I am now 2 ½ years old now and it is time for us to part because of circumstances. However we were there for each other when it was meant to be. I have perfect manners and know basic commands. I don’t need a crate, weigh about 80 pounds and I’m not fat. I have been very much loved and cared for but it is time to go to my forever home.

Thank you Gordana Kosutic, Kelley Treichel, Shirley Braden, Tracy Lovelace, Virginia Coile, Rosemary Della Ventura and Shirley Treichel for helping with my medical needs.

7/31/16: My folks were moving to a townhouse and thought it would be best if I have a home with a fenced yard where I could play safely. I am a one year old tri fellow that is housetrained and crate trained. My coat was shaved at the beginning of the summer but will grow back before the winter. Getting to know the other dogs and settling in.

I am a little, sheltie mix girl at about 30 pounds. Great manners in the house and very friendly. I get along fine with the other dogs and wouldn’t mind cats either. I really live up to my name and am a sweetie. Going this week for my spay and no more babies for me.

At 70 pounds I could stand to lose about 5 of that and on the green bean diet. I went for my neuter and a much needed bath this week. I have an outgoing personality and a very sweet guy.
