1/5/18:  I had been on my own as a stray for a very long time.  The folks at the animal shelter put out traps to try and catch me.  I’m a pretty smart guy and was able to avoid them so they tranquilized me.  Now I’m at the collie rescue and learning about the good life.  Stuff like a warm bed to sleep on, plenty of food to eat and getting pets.  Since I am a bit shy I go outside on a 15 ft. leash so I can be caught if needed.  However I’m doing really well and even trying to come through the dog door.  I have some really large mats that need to be cut out and I need to be neutered.  Please check back to see my progress.

Thank you Petra Thomas for helping with my medical cost.

1/7/18:  Went to the vet this week for a check over and a much needed bath.  It had been a very long time since I’d had a bath and the sweet girls washed me three times to get all the flea dirt off.  The vet said my tumors are lipomas (fatty tumor) that are to large to remove but do not hurt me in any way.  Hopefully as I lose weight they will shrink some and 85 pounds is way to much for me.  My teeth do need a good cleaning and will get that done next week.  I am housetrained, great with the other dogs and such a very sweet girl.  I am looking for a permanent foster home where the rescue will pay all my medical needs and all you have to do is love me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1/1/18:  My person was in a bad auto accident and could no longer take care of me.  I’m probably the happiest 9 year old collie mix girl you will ever meet and will make you smile.  You may have noticed I’m a bit overweight and that I am also lopsided.  On my left side I have a huge growth and we are going to the vet this week to see if anything can be done.  Please keep me in your prayers.

Thank you Libby Meyer, Amanda Cox, Deena Hilbert and Barbara Crockett for donating to help with my medical needs.

1/4/18:  Robert and Susan came to meet me today and I decided to go home with them.  They had been following me on the website and already knew all about me.  Once we were home I snooped around the house and let them know about that empty food bowl right away.  I’m going to have so much love and attention with the Johnson’s and thanks everyone who helped me to find them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1/1/18:  The animal shelter picked me up as a stray wondering around.  I am a 6 year old collie girl at about 55 pounds with good house manners.  I like the other dogs here and get along with them just fine.  Last week I had my first bath ever and they had to was me three times to get all the dirt off.  I’m looking pretty good now if I do say so.

12/26/17:  I will be starting the new year in my new home with Heidi.  She has been a collie lover for a long time.  When she was a little girl she got lost in the woods and a mysterious collie showed up and led her home.  I’m pretty sure I can live up to this adventure as I am a very smart fellow.  We are going to do most everything together and here is a picture of me in my new home.  Thanks everyone that helped me to find Heidi.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

12/19/17:  Please to meet you and I am a 2 year old fellow at about 45 pounds.  A very active kind of guy that loves the ladies.  I’m doing good on the leash training, enjoy rides in the car and am housetrained.  A sweet, loving little guy that would really like another dog to play with.

Thank you Susan Veld for donating to help with my medical needs.

12/16/17:  Doug and Cynthia came to take me home today and I am very excited to start my new life with them.  We made the long trip home safely and I have explored the yard and house.  I’m a bit of a nosy chap.  I will be the center of attention here and will even get to go to work with them.  I have definitely found the right folks for me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

11/26/17:  Dong great here at the rescue going for walks on the leash and rides in the car.  I am fine with the other dogs as long as they are not aggressive to me and no food is involved.  However these old ladies here do put me in my place and I’m ok with that.  I’m all about food and highly motivated to train for treats.  Here is a movie so you can see me in action.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

10/19/17:  I am a two year old ninety-seven pound collie boy on a diet.  However I am a big fellow and only need to lose about ten pounds.  A friendly guy that is housetrained and knows basic commands.  I am at the collie rescue because I would prefer a home without other pets.  You can see I have a huge coat that will require weekly brushing.

 

 

Puppies (Adopted)

 

 

12/2/17:  My turn to go and start my new life with the Smith’s.  I’m going to live close to the rescue and I can visit often.  So here I go wearing my bow tie because a tux wouldn’t be right without a bow tie.  I will have two brothers to play with and a lot of new toys my new mom and dad bought.  I know I’m on my way to a good life with Pat and Clay.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TUX (Adopted)  I like to have my picture taken and will sit up proudly for the camera.  I’m an outgoing kind of guy.  Clearly no imagination was used with my name, really look at me.  All I need is a bow tie.

 

 

12/2/17:  I’m going home with Miss Rebecca today and she says we are going to do everything together.  She loved me the minute she saw my picture and I know I am going to have a good home with her.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ROLO (Adopted)  I’m a tri fellow that is sweet as candy with loving to snuggle.  Learning about the big new world and stuff like baskets.

 

 

12/7/17:  I’m finally big and strong enough to go home with my new family.  The Munson’s have been very excited my coming to live with them.  I will have another dog to play with and know I will be very much loved.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GRETEL (Adoption Pending)  Although I’m not as big as my siblings maybe I take after mom who is also small.  I wanted to go ahead and start sheep herding skills and get this big thing under control.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

12/1/17:  I’m the first to leave the nest and going home with the Parker’s.  They have visited me several times while I was growing up enough to leave.  This is my big sister Zoe in the picture and she was also adopted from collie rescue.  She is about 40 pounds and I will probably be bigger than her one day.  We ate our dinner together and  Zoe is taking very good care of me.  She tells me we will go on many travels with mom and dad and I’m looking forward to the adventures we will share.  I know I am a very lucky puppy to have found Linda and Alan.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OPRAH (Adopted)  I have a lot to live up to with my new name and plan to be a strong, caring girl.  I like to cuddle, play with my siblings and learning about toys.

 

 

11/4/17:  We are having our first puppy food and it sure was good.  We will be 5 weeks old on 11/9/17

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

11/2/17:  We are 1 month old today and happy birthday to us.  We have been growing and starting to develop personalities. 

 

10/11/17:  What a surprise we were.  Mom was adopted on 9/17 and a collie/ sheltie/? mix.  She was scheduled to be spay but we came along so that will have to wait.  We all moved back to the rescue until we are weaned and can go to our new homes.  Yesterday we went for our first vet visit and to have our dewclaws removed.  One of our sisters did not have a rectum and could not poop so she didn’t come home with us.  We weighed a little of a pound today and are 2 boys and 2 girls.  We will be ready to go in about eight weeks.  Our mom is such a good mother and takes very good care of us.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fluffy (Adopted)

 

11/30/17:  Stephany came today to take us to our new home with her.  We will have two sisters with Munchkin the sheltie and Lacey the collie.  Our bags were packed and we hopped right in the car because we love car rides.  Right now we are busy making ourselves at home.  We are so happy we could stay together and sure do appreciate Miss Stephany for loving these two beautiful, goofy guys.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

11/19/17: Ben and I are five year old brothers and the rescue folks are getting to know us to see if we need to stay together.  We are very gentle, mild mannered fellows that love to ride in the car and go for walks.  We are great with all other animals and children.  Enjoy playing fetch with the football and sunning on the deck.  We are housetrained and will go in a crate for a hot dog but don’t really need it.  We are at the rescue because our person moved from the country to the city.  I’m a beautiful fellow at 82 pounds.

Rosie (Adopted)

 

 

 

11/20/17:  I’m going home with the Smallin’s today and they will continue my physical therapy to help my leg strengthen.  These are my new pals Darcy and Brett who were also adopted from collie rescue.  There is no doubt I will have the best of care with lots of love from Jean and Anita.

 

 

 

 

 

 

11/12/17:  I am a 1 year old, smooth collie that is housetrained and crate trained.  My person became disabled and could no longer care for me so I came to the rescue.  I get along great with the other dogs and cats are ok with me also.  If I don’t have others to play with I just play by myself, throwing my toy in the air and run after it.  I have a bit of a limp on my right rear leg and no one seems to know what happened.  However at some point in my young life I stopped using it and have lost a great deal of muscle.  The specialist x-rayed and checked me over good and no injuries to be found.  Therefore I am going to physical therapy twice a week where I get on the treadmill and have laser therapy.  We also do exercises at the rescue to teach me to use the leg again.  It doesn’t hurt me except after the therapy session it is a bit sore.  Having the others here to play with has really helped also and learning to put my leg down.  I am making great progress.

11/17/17:  Leaving today and headed to my new home with the Hoke’s.  We made the long ride home safely and then I met my new friend Finley.  He is two years old and sure did welcome a buddy to play with.  I have so much in store for me here.  We plan to do agility and many other activities.  Thanks for helping me to find Colin and Krista.

 

 

11/2/17:  Went to Lowes yesterday where we met lots of people and some had treats for good dogs.  I’m still very much a puppy and working on not jumping up and mouthing.  I would really like a home with another dog to play with.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

9/18/17:  Doing great in my foster home and learning so many things.  Outstanding progress with my obedience training.  Went to herd the sheep one day and I do have the instinct for the job.  I’m a happy girl that loves everyone.  I have included a link below so you can see how well I am doing.

8/28/17:  Last week I went for my spay and ready for my new home.  Miss Jean doesn’t like barking in the house and if I do she squirts me with that water bottle.  So I just do a soft huff, huff, huff if I feel the need to bark and don’t get squirted.  I am easily corrected if I am doing something I shouldn’t but spend most of my day playing.  I am learning basic commands like sit, down and come.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8/20/17:  I’m the youngster here at the rescue and only 10 months old.  I was picked up as a stray by the animal control and thanks Anita and Paul for helping me find my way to the rescue.  Last week I was spay and received my vaccinations.  Doing good with the housetraining, crate training and learning basic commands.  I love everyone, the other dogs and cats are ok with me.  The rescue folks aren’t sure what my DNA mixture is but I have enough collie that I don’t like that squirt bottle.

Thank you Susan Veld for helping with my medical cost.

10/15/17:  I’m going home with Sherry today and met Max when we arrived.  He perked right up and started prancing around.  Max has really been missing having a collie companion and we need each other.  He showed me all around the yard and then we settled down for a nap.  I’m going to be just fine here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

10/10/17:  I am a four year old, sweet as the come collie girl.  My weight is about 56 pounds.  I am with the rescue because my people could no longer keep me.  I have great house manners and also crate trained.  Not much of an alpha girl and would prefer a home with another dog to give me confidence.  I do have a bit of a sensitive stomach and on special food.

10/14/17:  I’m excited to start my new life today with Diane.  Once we were home I met Charlie my new collie friend and he showed me around.  I immediately made myself comfortable on the couch and Diane doesn’t mind.  I’m going to be very much loved here and thanks everyone for helping me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

10/8/17:  I’m feeling so much better and happier.  Having a great time running and playing with the others here at the rescue.  My hair has started to grow and my skin is not itching as much.  One day my full coat will be back.  I am learning basic commands like sit but don’t really see the need for it. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

9/3/17:  I am a 5 year old white collie fellow at about 55 pounds.  My owner is going through some really rough times and could no longer care for me.  I have a bit of a skin infection which has caused a lot of hair loss.  Getting a medicated bath this coming week and a check over with the vet.  I’m great with the other dogs and cats are ok with me.  Walk well on the leash, housetrained and crate trained but I don’t need one.  I have very good manners in the house.
