Here is a picture of our mom and the collie is our dad.  At one year old we were living on a farm just running loose with no vaccinations or flea / tick prevention.  Animal control decided to take us in and called the collie rescue.  Then went on our first car ride with Judy and Steve that brought us to rescue.  At first we were afraid to get out of the car but after some coaxing we finally gave it a try.  Right away we were each given our very own bowl of food and some fresh water.  Oh what a wonderful place this is and we are so thankful to the collie folks that also care about the mixes too.  We are the sweetest dogs, not barkers and very smart.  So far we have received our vaccinations, wormed, flea treated and heartworm tested which was negative.  We did all test positive for lyme disease because of all the ticks we had and now on antibiotics to clear that up.  Soon we will be going to the vet for our spay/neuter, bath and rabies vaccination.  A DNA test has been sent off to find out our breed percentages and will update when the results come in.  We are doing great with the housetraining never had an accident.  We are very smart and enjoy being around people, the other dogs and the cat is fine with us.

SHORTBREAD

 

One year old male at 50 pounds.  My right foot was caught in a cayote trap and my toes were cut off.  After x-rays and an exam, the vet does not believe that it hurts me anymore.  I do sometimes hold it up, but they think that is out of habit from when it was first injured.  I don’t have any trouble running and do put it down then.  The only thing in the world I want is to be loved.  I am the most humble, gentle and easy going kind of guy.  I do have some hair loss and they are working to find out what is going on with that.  I am learning so many things here at the rescue and doing great with that leash walking.

5/16/22:  The little one at our house became allergic to my fur I had to go live outside.  My folks decided to let me come to the collie rescue so I can find a home where I can live indoors again which I really prefer.  I am 5 years old and weigh about 80 pounds.  You can see I’m very overweight and need to lose pounds so I am on a diet here.  I will be going to the vet soon for a much needed bath and an update on my vaccinations.  I get along with the other dogs and the cats are fine with me.  I am housetrained, enjoy rides in the car and walk pretty good on the leash.  My favorite thing is to play with the water hose and could chase it for hours.

5/18/22:  I am a 4 year old collie girl at about 65 pounds and wouldn’t hurt to lose a few.  I’m here at the rescue because my folks just moved off and left me with no intention of taking me with them.  I am a very sweet girl that gets along great with the others.  I am housetrained and crate trained although I don’t need it.  I’m good with the children but a bit rude and will push by people.  We are working on this.  Doing good with the leash walking and learning basic commands.  I will be going to the vet soon for vaccinations and a much needed bath.

4/3/22:  About 2 months ran out the door and got hit by a car.  I immediately jumped up and ran off.  After 2 ½ weeks I showed up home very skinny as I had not eaten.  After the rescue picked me up, they discovered I am bowel incontinent which means I sporadically drop balls of poop without knowing.  It is possible something happened inside when I was hit by the car and of course it could be something else.  Because I am so skinny I need extra food which means I poop more.  Please keep me in your prayers and also Ms. Jean who is doing all the cleaning for me.  I will be going to see the specialist the end of the month and hoping they can help me.  I know no one wants a collie in the house pooping everywhere but I really don’t want to be an outside dog either.

3/20/22:  I am at the rescue because my person had a medical emergency.  I am about 4 years old,  a smooth collie fellow at 50 pounds.  I have been to the vet for my bath, vaccinations and neuter.  I get along great with the other dogs and also the cats.  I am crate trained and learning basic commands.

Thank you Tara Lane, Kristine Mangor, Landee Roth, June Evans, Barbara Rosso, Deborah Knowles, Shannon Burdick, Calley Steelman and Chelsea Reighard for helping with my medical needs.

5/2/22:  I am a 5-month-old, sable and white collie fellow that is learning so many new things.  We are working on the housetraining, crate training and basic commands.  I like to be around the other dogs and not a pest to them.  The cats are ok but I might like to chase them. My folks had to move in with family members in another state because our house burnt down.  Soon I will be going to the vet for a bath and vaccinations.

Lewis (Adopted)

 

5/5/22:  Pam has decided to give me a home to live out my senior years.  It is much quieter here and there are dog beds to sleep on.  I have met Lilly the collie who would like me to play with her but she has figured out that isn’t going to happen.  Also met the cat and we just ignore each other.  I follow Pam around everywhere and stick by her side.  I know my people are missing me and I would like them to know I will be just fine and well taken care of here with Pam.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5/1/22:  I have traveled the world over with my family.  I have just turned 12 years old a trip to Japan would just be to much for me.  After doing lots of research they decided CRC would be the best place for me and drove 800 miles to bring me here.  I have been very much loved and well cared for over the years.  Being a smooth coat collie there isn’t a lot of maintenance to my coat.  I am housetrained, good with cats and other dogs and love my dog bed.  A healthy fellow and up to date on all vaccinations and heartworm preventative.  I can sometimes be a little grumpy but that is my right as a senior and please stay off my lawn.

The rescue realizes it is hard to take in a senior and love them as if they be with you forever.  These seniors are suddenly without the home they have always known and need a friend to give them a place to live out their senior years.  The seniors are like puppies without all the bad habits and always doing things to make you laugh.  The rescue pays for all approved medical cost and all you have to do is love them.  We do still require a fenced yard, vet check and home visit.  Most of the seniors cannot do many steps.

Thank you Angelo Massari for helping me with my medical needs.

Max (Adopted)

4/3/22:  I have found my new folks and going home with the Marshina’s and Ella today.  It was a long ride home so Ella and I slept most of the way.  This morning after breakfast we went for a long walk together.  This will help me to get this extra weight off and back to my muscular self.  After a nap Ella and I played some in the yard. I’m helping her to get over her shyness and a perfect job for me.  I am so happy to be joining this wonderful family and never knew life could be so good.

3/6/22:  We came into rescue as a family.  It was me, the little woman and our two pups that have been adopted.  I was a great dad and took very good care of the family.  We were all covered in fleas and ticks, matted, dirty and didn’t smell very good.  We were living out in the county with no fence and a free feeder that we ate from whenever we wanted, and this has caused me to get overweight.  I am 7 years old, about 90 pounds and on a diet.  The folks are working a little each day to get the mats out of my coat and then I will go for a much needed bath.  I will also be neutered and no more babies for me.  Due to all the ticks on me I do have Lyme disease and Ehrlichiosis.  Both are bacterial illness that develops in dogs when bitten by an infected tick.  I am on antibiotics, feeling so much better and hope this to be cleared up soon.  I am a happy fellow and my tail is always wagging no matter what we are doing.  I have had no problem with the housetraining and also crate trained.  We are working on leash walking and basic commands that I am learning quickly.  I am good with the other dogs and love to play.

Thank you Chelsea Reighard and Shannon Burdick for helping with my medical cost.

2/27/22:  Hello, my name is Archie, a four year old collie fellow at about 65 pounds.  About two years ago my Achilles’ tendon was torn on my right, rear leg.  Surgery was done and the vet put a plate in however my leg just wouldn’t heal because I kept getting infections.  Finally, a month ago it was decided to amputate my leg because I wasn’t using it anyway.  I was tired of my leg hurting all the time and having to wear bandages.  I am adjusting very well and learning to balance without it.  I know after a while I will be more comfortable going up and down steps but until then I am using a ramp.  There are tile floors here, so mats were put down for me to walk on safely.  I am a great guy that is good with other dogs big and small, good with kids of all ages and the cat doesn’t bother me.  I enjoy playing a game of fetch, going for walks, swimming and holding paws with people.  I am completely housetrained and have perfect manners.

Thank you June Evans and Barbara Crockett for helping with my medical needs.

2/6/22:  Hello folks, I am a 9 ½ year old girl looking for a home to live out my senior years.  My person put me for sell on a website and the collie rescue quickly took me in.  She didn’t tell anyone that I am incontinent and need daily medicine for this.  This might have really upset someone else had they purchased me.  They might not have wanted me putting me in a bad situation.  The rescue has started me on medicine, and it is working great.  It can be embarrassing to pee your pants and have accidents.  My blood work came back great so I will be having a dental and a cyst removed from my tail later in the month.  I still have plenty of energy and enjoying playing with the other dogs and going for walks.  I have good house manners and will let you know when I need to potty.  I get along fine with the other dogs and the cats are ok with me.  I do enjoy sleeping on nice, soft dog bed if you might have one.

Thank you June Evans, Patricia Finch Dewey, Landee Roth, Paty Cochrum and Thomas McFall for helping with my medical cost.

2/19/22:  The first birthday is always special but this one is extra special for me since I’m going to my new home with Christine and Nathanial.  It was a long ride home and once here I made myself comfortable by taking a nap on the bed.  This is going to be the perfect home for me and so happy to have found the Wheelwright’s.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1/9/22:  Hi guys, I am a one year old collie girl at about 50 pounds.  I am at the rescue because my person could no longer care for me.  I am housetrained and sometimes crate trained although I don’t like it.  I’m good with the other dogs except I can sometimes be a bully and would need a dog that will put me in my place.  I know a few commands and we are working on those.  I don’t mind getting a bath or being brushed out.  That blow dryer scare me a bit though.  I’m a sweet girl that just needs to learn some manners.  The best part is I’m not afraid of the vacuum, fireworks or thunder.

 

 

Cody & Crickett (Adopted)

2/5/22:  We are headed to our new home with the Goodman’s.  Oh how excited we were to meet them and knew they were the ones for us.  They didn’t mind our shenanigans letting us jump up and give kisses.  When we get home, we will meet Maddie who is a senior lady.  We are sure she will probably help to keep us in line.  Thanks everyone for helping is to find this great home with Pam and Joe.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Crickett:  I’m 2 yeas old, 90 pounds and my ears stand up.  Also, my blaze is a little bit off center and I’m the taller one but you can’t see that.

Cody:  I’m 3 years, 70 pounds and my ears don’t stand up.  My blaze goes right down the center of my head.  I’m the shorter one but you can see that.

We are two brothers from another mother looking for a new home.  We would really like to stay together because we get along great and love each other.  It is hardly ever that we have a dispute between us and we are always looking for the other one.  We are in rescue because our person could not longer afford to take care of us.  We are both on diets because we are overweight.  We have been neutered since coming to rescue, updated on vaccinations and heartworm negative.  We get along fine with the other dogs and the cats are ok with us also.  We are housetrained and pretty in the house except one of us sometimes likes to steal things off the counter.  We are very sweet and affectionate fellows.

Tucker (Adopted)

 

1/20/22:  At my new home now with David and we are becoming best friends.  We go on walks together and sometimes I go to work with him.  He is a veterinarian so you know I will receive the best of care.  Dad had collies all his childhood years and always wanted one as an adult, but it just never seemed to work out until now.  Thanks everyone that helped me to find this great home.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1/9/22:  Hello folks, I am a 2 year old fellow at about 70 pounds.  I have to admit I could stand to lose a few pounds.  I am at the rescue because my person unexpectedly has to take care of family members.  They felt I was not getting enough interaction and having to spend to much time in the kennel.  So now you know I am crate trained and I am also housetrained, walk well on the leash and know basic obedience commands.  I know how to ring a bell to let you know I need to go outside.  The kong is one of my favorite toys if it has peanut butter in it.  I am good with children, the other dogs and all humans.  I enjoy ear rubs, belly rubs and cheerios for a treat.

1/14/22:  My new mom and aunt came to take me home.  I’m going to be the only dog and get all of the attention.  Mom sleeps with me on the sofa because I haven’t mastered the stairs yet.  I did bark at that cat when he took my spot of the couch.  We have been going for walks together and Terry is taking such good care of me.  Thanks everyone who helped to save me from being an outside dog and now having this wonderful home.

 

12/26/21:  My people were elderly and when they passed away the granddaughter advertised me on Craigslist for free.  Some wonderful folks came to meet me and all the young lady could tell them was my name and that I am 9 years old.  Never been around other animals, or trained and always been an outside dog.  As soon as they saw my condition they knew I was going home with them.  My hair was long, matted to the skin, and my legs and tail area was so bad I couldn’t sit down.  I was caked with dead skin, dirt and feces.  My teeth were  snaggled and you could smell his breath across the room. I was very weak and wobbly, and had held up while being washed and shaved. I was so happy to be clean and able to move but when I gave a rag a gentle tug 3 of my teeth fell out.  The good folks took me to be checked and vaccinated.  I weighed 48 lbs., had 3 different kinds of intestinal parasites, and a “horrifying” case of dental disease.  Fortunately I was heartworm negative.  I was treated for everything and had a dental with 4 more teeth being pulled.  Now I am eating, gaining weight and my coat has started to grow back.  I have been debarked and make a huffing sounds when I try to bark.  I enjoy playing with the other dogs if they don’t get to rough and the cats don’t bother me.  I do great on the leash and will hop right in the car for a ride.  I know no strangers and love everyone.  I want to thank the lifesaving folks that me in even though they knew they could not keep me.  They know the rescue will find a home that is just right for me.

Dapper (Adopted)

 

 

1/1/22:  I am happy to be the first adoption of 2022.  I am starting off the new year with my new family Jill and Carl.  Once home I met my new sister Skye and all the critters on the farm.  Looks like I’m going to fit in perfectly here and thanks everyone that helped me to find the Joyce Family.

 

 

 

12/26/21:  The vet is guessing I am between 4 and 5 years old and I am about 50 pounds.  I was picked up by the animal control as a stray and nobody came to claim me thank goodness.  Since coming to the rescue I have been neutered and heartworm treated.  My coat wasn’t in very good shape but is starting to grow out now.  I have a lot of personality, one of the happiest guys you will ever meet and absolutely love life.  I am housetrained, crate trained but don’t really need it.  I am great on leash walking and enjoy a good game of fetch.  I’m good with all the ladies and most males if they aren’t to bossy.  Also good with those cats and they don’t bother me at all.

Thank you Joanne Cowulich and Shannon Burdick for helping with my medical needs.

 

 

Keebler (Adopted)

 

12/28/21:  Dad and I are on a long trip to my new home.  I will meet mom when we get there and he assures me she will love me just as much as he does.  I will be the only dog and get all the attention and petting I want.  I am so happy to become a member of the Stolpa Family and thanks everyone that helped to make this new life possible for me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

12/12/21:  I’m a 4 year old collie fellow at the rescue because my person took me to the animal shelter.  That was my lucky day because now I’m going to have a real life with folks that will love me.  I have been to the vet for my checkup, neutering and a bath.  I’m doing pretty good with the housetraining although I have had a few accidents.  I don’t need a crate and I’m so good I get to sleep in Ms. Jean’s room with her.  I know my basic commands like sit, shake and pretty good on the leash.  I get along with most other dog but since the cat scratched me I don’t like them anymore.

Thank you Kendy Cochran for helping with my medical needs.

 

 

Ledger (Adopted)

 

 

12/11/21:  The Skinner Family drove a very long way to adopt me.  I knew they were the ones for me the minute I met them.  On the way home we stopped to spend the night at a hotel and that was pretty exciting.  I was a very good boy on the ride but mostly slept.  I’m going to have all the attention I want being the only dog and that suits me just fine.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

10/31/21:  I’m a 10 month old, tri collie fellow.  My people could no longer keep me so I came to the rescue.  Doing great with the housetraining and learning basic commands.  I will be going to the bet for a much needed bath and neuter.

Thank you Shannon Burdick and Pamela Gregorczyk for helping with my medical needs.

11/30/21:  I found my new person and going home with Susan.  I was a very good boy in the car on the long ride home.  I met the car and took a long nap on my new bed.  The next day Stella came home from the pet sitter.  She is an older woman at 1 ½ and showing me the ropes here.  We went outside for a rousing game of ball then took a long nap.  I’m going to be very happy here in my new home.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

11/14/21:  I’m a young, one year old tri fellow here at the rescue because my people were having financial difficulty.  You would never guess me to be a puppy because I have such good manners.  I am completely housetrained and don’t need a crate because I don’t chew on things.  I will sleep my your bed quietly all night if you let me.  I do not jump on people but do pull a little on the leash.  I get along great with all the other dogs and the cats are ok but will chase them if they run.

Thank you Susan Veld for helping with my medical needs.

11/18/21:  Serena came to meet me today and took me home.  Once we were home I met dad and Leo who was also adopted from the collie rescue.  You can see I am already being spoiled and this home will suit me just fine.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

10/31/21:  Hello, I am a small, one year old white female collie with a tri head.  I am in rescue because my person said I kill chickens but rescue folks aren’t sure about that.  I’m a quiet girl doing great with the housetraining and learning basic commands.  I will be going to the vet for a bath and my spay.

Thank you Shannon Burdick for helping with my medical needs.

 

Granger (Adopted)

 

 

11/11/21:  It was a long ride to my new home with the Powell’s and I slept most of the way.  I am their second adoption from CRC and know I will be in the best of hands.  I will get so much attention and all the petting I want.  Thanks everyone that helped me on my journey to find this great home with Jean and Willard.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

10/24/21:  I have been to the vet for a bath, vaccinations and neuter.  I’m an easy going kind of guy with good house manners.  I have learned to walk on the leash and do some basic commands.  I get along with all dogs and you can see I like the kitties.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

10/12/21:  I’m a ten month old fellow at about 50 pounds.  I have lived outside most of my life and not had much attention.  However I am coming around really quick and learning that crate training thing.  I get along with the other dogs but haven’t been tested with the cat.  I’m headed to the vet today for a bath and my neuter.

Thank you Susan Veld for helping with my medical cost.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vala and Minnie (Adopted to Permanent Foster Home)

 

11/13/21:  They say some things are just meant to be and that is exactly what happened for us.  Ron and Marianne were visiting at the rescue the day we arrived.  They helped us get settled in with giving us lots of pets and making us comfortable.  It seems we stayed on their minds and couldn’t stop thinking about us.  The next day they called the rescue to say they would like us to come live out our senior years with them.  What a blessing for us getting to stay together and going with folks we have already met. After going for a walk and meeting the neighbors we settled right in just as if we had always lived here.  Oh yes, it was meant to be.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

11/1/21:  Our owner unexpectedly passed away, then they cleaned out our house and we came to the rescue.  As you can imagine we have been through a lot lately.  We have been together all our lives and can’t imagine not having each other.  We are going to have our medical work done and will get some grooming this week.  We are looking for a home where we can stay together and someone will love both of us during our senior years.  Vala 13 (white) and Minnie 10 (sable)

Thank you Barry Knapp and Rosemary Aja for helping with our medical needs.

 

 

Tucker (Adopted to Permanent Foster Home)

 

 

11/12/21:  Lucky for me Trish has a weakness for the smooth collies and I’m going to live out my senior days with her.  She has another smoothie fellow just like me that was also adopted from CRC.  I have learned to go up and down the stairs to get in and out of the car so that we can go places together.  I think I am really going to enjoy living on this little farm with all the critters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

10/31/21:  Please to meet you and I am a 10 year old smooth collie fellow.  I have gained way to much weight and now on a strict diet.  I have great house manners and enjoy going for walks which I really need.  I’m fine with the other dogs and haven’t been tested with the cats yet.  I’m a very gentle easy going kind of guy.  I am at the rescue because my person is moving out of state and not taking me.

The rescue realizes it is hard to take in a senior and love them as if they be with you forever.  These seniors are suddenly without the home they have always known and need a friend to give them a place to live out their senior years.  The seniors are like puppies without all the bad habits and always doing things to make you laugh.  The rescue pays for all approved medical cost and all you have to do is love them.  We do still require a fenced yard, vet check and home visit.  Most of the seniors cannot do many steps.

Thank you Susan Hopkins, Landee Roth and Judith Gast for helping with my medical needs.
