Hello, my name is Joe.

Meet Joe!  Joe is an outgoing six month old smooth collie.  He’s also headed for higher education.  Joe has been selected for puppy training at the Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind, Inc.  in Smithtown, NY.  They’ve been training guide dogs since 1946 and are members of the International Guide Dog Federation.  Joe will go to live with a “puppy walker” until he’s about 14-16 months old.  Then he’ll move to a forever home with an individual that needs his new skills.  You can read more about guide dogs and this wonderful program that supplies trained dogs free of charge to those that need them at http://www.guidedog.org/.

Joe is just one example of the ways that rescued dogs and their adopters make the world a better place.  Whether they are working with disabled children, as therapy dogs for cancer patients, or providing love and attention for their adoptive families, they return the care that we give them with years of loyal service.  Do you have an amazing story about a rescue collie that you’d like to share?  Tell us at https://collierescue.net/contact/.
