7/25/15: Just arrived here this week because my people could no longer care for me. I am a 4 year old, tri collie fellow who gets along great with children and doing well with the other dogs. I am a bit overweight and understand I will be going on a diet which I am not looking forward to. Also will be going for my neuter this week. Please check back to see how I am doing.

7/25/15:  I was neutered this week and will have my heartworm treatment in 2 weeks.

7/18/15: New here at the rescue and came in with Swagger, Elise and Lassie who is my mom. We have always lived in the country but our people are moving to the city where they can’t take us so they called the collie rescue. Unfortunately all four of us have heartworms and will need to be treated. We will also need to be spay/neutered after our treatment is complete. We are pretty happy to be here since we get to come in the house where it is cool. So far we have learned crate training and I’m sure more will follow. I am a 5 year old collie fellow with the cutest ridge going down my nose. I’m pretty much a lover boy with a great personality. If you would like to help with my care just hit the donate button.

Thank you so much Marcia Ausband, Julie Gochenour, Carol Lightcap, Jane Rankins, Chris Hillhouse, Pam Brown, Linda Gruno, Carolyn McCullough, Audrey J Sumner, Lisa Young, Sheila Floyd and Roberta Healy for helping with my medical cost.

5/16/15: Well here I am looking much happier and making great progress. I am very use to Miss Jean now and we even play together. However I am still a bit scared of strangers but starting to realize all humans can be good and have treats for me. I have started to shed my winter coat which means I am a lot healthier now. With all the good food and treats I am gaining the much needed weight.  Today I got a good brushing and great on the grooming table.

4/4/15: I have learned to trust Miss Jean and still a bit afraid of strangers. However when the volunteers came today we worked on meeting new people. It is just something that takes time when you have lived outside with only other collies for company. I love my crate and it my special place that only belongs to me but don’t mind sharing if others want to join me. This great life can be a little hard to accept however the others tell me my life is only going to get better.

3/16/15: I am named after Marla Hooch from the movie A League of Their Own and play second base for our team. I am a one year old, white collar girl at about 40 pounds. I sure do need to gain some weight as we never had enough food to go around. I am adjusting to this good life here where the food never ends and there are toys to play with. Although I was pretty scared when we first arrived I have learned crate training and love being in the house.  Saturday I had a good brushing where all the mats were removed and a bath.

Thank you Kim E Moore, Under the Maples, Chris Hillhouse, Ann Bishop, Sylvia Montgomery for helping this little girl.

 

Buzz

 

Buzz 37/25/15: Well this week I went to the vet for bloodwork and x-rays. My bloodwork came back really good but the x-rays showed I have pretty bad arthritis. I am on a buffered aspirin each day and has really helped my mobility. Unfortunately I did pick up kennel cough at the shelter and coughing a lot. I know I look pretty pitiful in the picture but you should see me run when that cough medicine comes out. I’m getting stronger every day and will just be on preventive for the heartworms. At my age the vet doesn’t think it would be a good idea to put me through the treatment. The rescue is looking for me a permanent foster home where I can spend my days in comfort. This means the rescue will pay for my medical needs and all you have to do is love me.

Buzz

 

7/18/15: The animal shelter picked me up as a stray walking down the road. My owners didn’t come to pick me up so I came to the rescue. I’m a bit of a senior fellow with that older dog bark, very underweight and weak in my hips. If that isn’t bad enough I also have heartworms that will need to be treated when I get stronger. No one knows how long I have been wondering around on my own and since I am a smooth collie I don’t have any mats in my coat. I know you folks will do what you can to get me healthier again. If you would like to help with my care just hit that donate button and thank you so much for caring about this senior fellow.

4/29/15: Greetings, my name is Neilan and I am a 4 year old white collie with a sable head. A nice lady took me in however I didn’t get along with her male dog so she contacted the rescue. She really cared about me and wanted to make sure I was in a safe place where I will find a home suited for me. I’m a smart fellow who is housetrained and leash trained. A sweet guy at about eighty pounds and get along great with cats.

Thank you Angela Barker, Sylvia Montgomery and Georgeanne Cheng for helping with my care.

8/2/15: If you are looking for an easy going, gentle kind of guy I would certainly be the one for you. I went to the vet this week where I was neutered and they found birdshot in my chest and leg and it was removed. I am a very loving kind of guy and don’t know why anyone would want to hurt me. I also had my rear dew claws removed and they weren’t attached making them kind of like flippers. I’m just a goofy kind of guy who likes doing whatever you do and very respectful of you humans never jumping up. I’m learning basic commands like sit and come.  Oh and I had a bath also.

I will be going for my neuter and a bath on Friday and please wish me luck.  That is my brother doing the photo bombing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh my goodness, Lizabeth Meyer sent a donation to help with my medical needs.  However I think that means neutering.

8/2/15: Ok I went to the vet and got neutered and yes I am much smarter. I leaned not to ever go there again because they remove your body parts and give you shots. Thank goodness I only stayed one day or who knows what might have happened. I just a fun loving, goofy kind of guy at 66 pounds. I get along with everyone and cats would be ok with me. Quickly learning to sit and walk well on the leash. I don’t jump up on people and a gentle kind of fellow. While the rescue folks don’t know what the mix part might be I have the true collie nature.

5/16/15: Wow has my life really turned around and I am so happy now. When I first came into the rescue I had no idea how great humans were and how much love they have to give. I have learned to sit for a treat and gaining some much needed weight. I’m still a little afraid of strangers and starting to learn they have treats also. I sure do smile a lot more these days and love this new life. There is plenty of food for everyone but would someone ask Miss Jean to please stop hugging all over me? Little boys just don’t like that sort of thing.

4/7/15: Time for an update on my progress and I am in the house now. Doing great with going in my crate for a cookie and have started to learn sit. I’m starting to get more confident, enjoy this good life and pets feel great. My system is finally adjusting to the good food and plenty of it. They tell me I am a good boy and these are words I have never heard before.

I play shortstop on the team and so glad to be here. I am a three year old white collie with a tri head. I sure did love having a bath and wagged my tail the whole time. This new good life where there is plenty of food is so new to me and a little scary. So many things I have never experienced like love and kindness. However I sure am ready to give it a try and understand my life is only going to get better.

Thank you Sandra Schuck, Mary Witul, Thomas Jeffries, Michael Sanderson, Ginny Coile and Terri L. Cheema for helping this fellow.

7/25/15:  Heartworm treatment complete and I will be neutered in one month.

7/18/15: I am probably the most lively eight year old collie fellow you will ever met and also the most loving. Went to the vet where he x-rayed my hips and everything looked fine. However he does think I have a bit of a neurological disorder because I sometimes like to go in circles and probably trauma sometime in my life. I will be going this week for my heartworm treatment.

6/23/15: Really good news for me and after having my blood tested two more times I do not have kidney failure. In fact my bloodwork was really good so I will have my heartworm treatment and then be neutered. Heck I have as much energy as these youngsters and love playing with them. I need to gain a few pounds so I get lots of treats during the day and whenever I go in my crate. Doing great with the housetraining and no problem there. All the other collies and I get along just fine and I sure am happy to be here where so many people care.  Looking pretty good after my bath huh?

6/7/15: Folks my name is Lasso and my people took me to the shelter at eight years old because I was no longer wanted. I am only 45 pounds and underweight and when the shelter ran bloodwork found out I have heartworms and in kidney failure. I also have never been neutered. It was my lucky day went my folks abandoned me and the rescue took me in. They ran new bloodwork and it came back normal so there is a mix up somewhere. The vet suggested putting me on antibiotics and retesting bloodwork in two weeks. When I came in I was very wobbly and unsteady on my feet but I am improving and starting to play with the others. I am the sweetest fellow you will ever meet and please keep me in your prayers.

Just when I had pretty much given up hope I found out there are people who care:  Mac Robinson, Theresa Kleeman, Ruth Cummins, Under the Maples, Kim E Moore, Thomas Jeffries, Michael Sanderson, Hollis Kerfoot, Jacqueline Mongan, Kimberlee Rettberg, Barbara Minakakis, Kendy Cochran, Ann Bishop, Underthemaples, Anne White, Maureen Walsh McGrath and Gordana Kosutic

7/31/15: Hello folks I am a 3 month old, 15 pound collie boy. In my sort life I have had 2 different homes through no fault of my own. The first people sold me on Craigslist and the 2nd ones took me to the animal shelter saying they did not have enough time for me. The rescue folks says they just weren’t the right home for me and my forever people will come. Due to my size all the volunteers like to hold me on their laps and carry me around. I’m a sweet, confident, little fellow who is learning crate training.
