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 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 Barbara Minakakis, Lizabeth Meyer, Karen Warren, Debbie Olsakovsky, Nancy Covey and George Jensen II for helping with my medical cost.

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 up but it is time to go to my forever home.

7/22/16: I’m another collie in rescue because my folks are moving were they could not have a dog. However I know now that I am at the rescue I will find the home waiting for a great girl like me. I am 4 years old, housetrained, crate trained and good with the other dogs. I have been well taken care of and have a great personality.

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.

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.

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. If you would like to help with my medical cost just click the donate button and say it is for Celine.

Thank you Kim Rettberg, Ruth Cummins, June Evans, Lizabeth Meyer, Adele Volpe, Marian Rogers, Ann Moyle, Deborah Showalter, Terri Cheema, Valeri Rothbauer, Carolyn McCullough, Valerie Brehm, Carol Clasen, Karen Brown, Shelia Nelson, Diana Horvat, Russ Alba, Maria Rivero, Carol Olmedo, Cindy Simpson, Renee Weitzman and Heather DeMelia and Anita Strawser for caring about the seniors.

6/16/16:  Went for my spay this week and found out I was in the early stages of pregnancy and thank goodness I will not be having puppies again.  I really like to have my belly rubbed and sit on your lap.

6/5/16: Started life off a little rough with already having 2 litters at only 1 ½ years old. However I can say I have never gone hungry or been mistreated. 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.

6/17/16: Well here I am at the rescue because the animal control picked me up as a stray. About 4 to 5 years old and haven’t missed any meals so must not have been roaming long. 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.

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.

Thank you Rebeccah Gan, Terri L. Cheema, Carolyn Ladd, Virginia King, Marian Ridge, Chris Hillhouse and Kimberly Luddington for helping with my medical cost.

6/22/16: The Ortner’s drove 11 hours to meet the collies and I picked them out. These are my new wheaten buddies Riley and Lucy and they are rescues also. We made it home safely and the girls are getting used to my southern bark. We visited the dog park where I enjoyed running and playing. The wheatens pretty much like to hang out with mom while I am a daddy’s girl. I am so lucky to have found this great home and thanks everyone.

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.

Thank you Rebeccah Gan, Nancy Gooding, Mary Witul, Susan Huneycutt, Ruth Cummins, Debbie Olsakovsky, June Evans, Nancy Covey and Tammy Goodman for helping with my medical cost.

 

Timmy (Adopted)

Timmy & David - Copy

 

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.
