Little Bear (Adopted)

 

5/9/21:  Just look at my new family and I fit right in.  Nancy says I’m great and loves how polite and sensitive I am.  Every time I see her I give her a great big smile and it always makes her smile.  Thanks everyone for helping me to find this great home.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4/26/21:  Pleased to meet you folks and thanks for letting me come to the collier rescue.  My folks are very elderly and having a hard time taking care of me.  I’m about 8 years old and weigh 40 pounds.  A bit overweight but the way I like to run in the yard that will come off quickly.  I have always been an outside dog living in a dog lot so I am very happy to have the large fenced yard.  In spite of being an outside dog I have perfect house manners and no accidents inside.  I am also already crate trained but I do not really need it.  I walk good on the leash and ride well in the car.  I get along with all the other dogs and will be tested with the cats this week.  I love all people and children and when I see them I put on a great big smile.  I am the best little fellow and cute as a bug.

 

 

Alexa (Adopted)

 

 

4/15/21:  Headed to my retirement home with Patricia and Ted.  They are going to give me all the love and care that I could ever want.  Nothing but the good life for me from now on.  I am so happy to become a member of the  Voigt family and it is special people that give us seniors a home.

 

 

 

 

 

 

3/20/21:  I have been used as a breeder dog and at 12 years old no longer wanted.  My coat is matted, dirty and I am in heat.  Did you know there is no menopause for dogs and we continue to have heat cycles all our life.  I am in pretty good shape and have no problem doing stairs.  I am housetrained and would love a soft dog bed to lay on.  I get along fine with the other dogs and don’t even mind the cats.  I sure would like to have a real home with someone to love me.

The rescue would like to find me a permanent foster home to live out my days.  This is where the rescue pays for all approved medical cost so all you have to do is love and take care of me.

Thank you Susan Veld and Landee Roth for helping with my medical cost.

 

 

Thank you Deborah Brown for helping with my medical needs.

 

Vanity (Adopted)

4/10/21:  Finally I can go home with Rhonda and Melvin.  We have been waiting for my medical work to be complete.  They immediately noticed my now 10 pound slimmer size.  Not quite ready for that bikini but I’m getting there.  We will wait until my thyroid is stable and I lose more pounds before my spay.  We had a quiet ride home where I met Macy.  She and I were instantly friends whit her showing me all around the yard and house.  Adding a picture of me in my new home and thank to all that helped me to find the Jaynes.

 

3/20/21: I was picked up as a stray by the animal shelter.  The rescue folks are guessing me to be between 6 and 8 years old and if you can believe it I weigh 105 pounds.  My coat is very think and I have hair loss which is all classic signs of a low thyroid.  Sure enough after going to the vet my thyroid was so low they were surprised I was feeling so good.  I have started on medicine now and it is very inexpensive at about $8 per month.  I will need to stay on it the rest of my life.  Now my hair will start to come back in and these pounds will drop off quickly.  As you can see I have great hips and still lay like a puppy.  I’m a very sweet girl that gets along with the other dogs and the cats.  I’m housetrained and enjoy sleeping on a dog bed.  I have a great personality and love to  be petted.

Thank you June Evans and Pamela January for donating to help with my medical cost.

 

Cooper (Home)

 

4/9/21:  Mom came to take me home today and we both cried and hugged each other.  I jumped all around the room barking with happiness.  I have been very sad since leaving and pretty much shut down.  I wouldn’t eat, paced all the time and I really wanted to go home.  The family all got together and each one will help mom with taking care of me and we can be together again.  I want to thank all the people that wanted to adopt me but home is where I want to be.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4/4/21:  Hello folks, I just arrived yesterday and right now I am a bit scared and confused.  I’m a ten year old collie fellow in great health and about 60 pounds.  My person loved me very much but she has health problems and cannot take care of me.  I am housetrained and crate trained although I don’t need one.  I have very good house manners.  I’m fine with the other dogs and like their company.

 

 

Lassie (Adopted)

 

4/2/21:  Folks, I have found the perfect home for me with Jamie.  I will be the only dog and therefor receive all the attention.  We like to sun in the backyard and I of course like to lay in the middle of the kitchen floor so I can see everything.  We are going for short walks as I build up to a little longer.  Thanks everyone that helped me to find Jamie.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3/20/21:  Now my ears are healing and I have medicine to make them stop hurting and itching.  I have also been spay and had my teeth cleaned.  It looks like I am ready for my new home and hope someone will want to adopt me.  I’m a little bossy with the other girls and would prefer to be the only dog or be with a male please.

3/9/21:  We went to see the orthopedic surgeon today evidently so I could take a nap.  While I was sleeping my leg and hips were x-rayed.  When my leg was fixed years ago it wasn’t done correctly so now my leg has healed incorrectly.  This has caused this leg to shorten and throw me off balance.  While they could go in and straighten my leg out they cannot make it longer.  This means I would still have the limp and won’t really help out at all.  I’ve lived with it this long and although it may look like it hurts, it really doesn’t.  Next the allergy specialist is going to access my ears to see what can be done for the growths and this constant itching.  Hoping for better news on this one.  

2/28/21:  I am a six year old collie girl that is a little overweight at 80 pounds.  It will be a while before I can go to my new home because I have a lot of medical problems that can hopefully be corrected.  I have a pin in my leg where at some time I was hit by a car.  It hasn’t healed right and my leg kicks out to the side.  Putting so much weight on my other legs has caused my hips to be out of whack.  I will be going to an orthopedic surgeon to see if anything can be done to fix my leg.  I also have ear infections and there is some kind of growth in my ears that need to be removed.  Then I will need to be spay and have my teeth cleaned.  In spite of all this I live up to the Lassie name and the sweetest girl you will ever meet.  I am housetrained, like the other dogs and even the cats.  I love my crate where I can go in and take a nap.  I’m not much on being outside and just do my business and right back in.  Folks please keep me in your prayers and if you can help with my medical needs that would be greatly appreciated.

A special thank you to all who donated to help me get better:  John C.

Trace (Adopted)

 

3/19/21:  I am becoming a member of the Woodiwiss Family today.  Ashley and Mary have been waiting for a fellow just like me to come along.  We had a long ride home and I behaved the whole way.  Once we go home I tore around the backyard getting some energy out.  I had a big dinner and we went on a walk around the neighborhood.  Then I fell asleep peacefully in my crate.  It has been a really big day for me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

3/13/21:  I am an 8 month old collie fellow at about 50 pounds.  I am housetrained, crate trained and learning basic commands.  Doing pretty good with the leash walking and riding in the car.  I love a good run out in the yard and enjoy a game of fetch.  I have a lot of energy as most puppies do and need exercise.  I do prefer the ladies and I’m not that great with other males.  I’m ok with the cat but I want to play with them and will chase them if they run.

 

Colton (Adopted)

 

3/19/21:  I’m going home with Linda and Gary today.  This is my new pal Kayden and I can tell you now she doesn’t tolerate any butt sniffing. I think I will have to give up on that form of saying hello.  Anyway here I am at my new home with my adoption toy.  Thank goodness they realize I don’t need a crate and let me sleep on a dog bed.  I am so happy to have found the Plante’s and know I will have a great life with them.

 

 

3/11/21:  Hi folks, I am a young, ten year old, tri collie fellow at about 64 pounds.  My person has cancer and wanted to make sure I have a good home so I came to the rescue.  I have always lived outside but you would never know it because I have great house manners.  My coat is a bit dry and bleached out by the sun but if will get all healthy again.   I get along with the other dogs and enjoy a good game of fetch.  I would prefer to be an inside dog now with a nice dog bed.

 

 

Bobo (Adopted)

 

 

 

3/13/21:  Well it turned out I need to learn some housetraining.  Since a wee puppy I have been using a pad in the house and just learning about going outside.  Susan decided she would take this job on and work with me.  Since arriving home I am doing really well and also using the dog door.  This is my new mentor Brooklyn and she is showing me to have confidence.  She is a senior lady that was also adopted from CRC and she has a lot of knowledge.  Thanks everyone that helped me to find this wonderful lady willing to work with me and give me a chance.  Bobo

 

 

2/28/21:  I am a 9 month old, 70 pound, good looking collie fellow.  My owner unexpectedly passed away so I came to the collie rescue.  I have been well taken care of and was loved very much.  I’m a little confused right now but sure do enjoy having the company of the other dogs.  The rescue folks are getting to know me and will update as they know more.

 

Schweppes (Adopted)

 

 

2/26/21:  Caroline came to take me home today and I’m the last of the 7UP Gang to leave.  Here I am with my new pack and I’m adding some color to the group.  I was so excited when I saw they were collies just like me.  Caroline has adopted many times and I know I am in great hands with her.  Thanks everyone who helped me to find her

 

 

 

2/15/21:  Would you just look at me now?  I have been to the vet for my bath and neuter.  This week I have learned to play with toys and get on the bed.  We are working on the leash walking and not to jump up.  Doing good with the housetraining however I am still very much a puppy and have things to learn.

1/23/21:  One year old tri, male collie.  Medical work and evaluation is in progress.

 

Rusty (Adopted)

 

2/27/21:  Now that my medical work is complete I can go home with Elaine.  We had a long ride home and then took a walk together. Toby the sheltie will be my new pal and he needs a calm guy like me to be around.  I know I’m going to have a great life here and thanks everyone who helped me to find this indoor home.

 

2/8/21:  I’m looking and feeling real good after my bath and a good brushing.  My coat just shines now and shows off my beautiful mahogany color.  My blood work came back perfect so I am now scheduled for my dental and neuter in a couple of weeks.

 

 

 

1/31/21:  I am an 84 pound collie fellow that just turned nine years old this month.  Having lived outside most of my life I am in need of a good brushing and a bath.  I will be going to the vet this week for an evaluation of my medical needs.

Thank you Helen Kline, Pamela January and Kimberlee Rettberg for caring about me and helping with my medical cost.

 

 

Joe (Adopted)

 

 

2/26/21:  You haven’t met me because I never made it to the website.  When the Kline’s met me they knew I was the one for them.  This is my new pal Sophie who was also adopted from CRC.  Since arriving home we have went on several hikes today and enjoyed playing in the yard.  I’m going to have a great life with them.

2/21/21:  We are three, eight week old, tri male, collie puppies.  We would like a home with another dog to play with and teach us the things we need to learn as we grow up.  We are working on housetraining but it will take us a while to get the hang of it.  We have also been practicing leash walking being brushed and having our nails trimmed.  We are very much babies and do all the things that puppies do.  We will chase the cat if the cat runs because that is great sport and we are a herding breed.

 

Fanta (Adopted)

 

2/20/21:  Please meet my new people, Justin and Jennifer.  They came to take me home today and I am looking forward to being a member of the Duvall Family.  I like to burrow my big snout into them and lay on top.  I have met the neighboring dogs and enjoy running up and down the fence line.  The best part of all is mom and dad cook for us and I get scramble eggs every morning.  I have truly hit the good life and thanks everyone that helped me to find them.

Max (Adopted)

 

2/5/21:  I am now in my new home with Sonia.  We go everywhere together and I’m starting to enjoy riding in the car and not getting car sick anymore.  I have new dog beds but prefer to sleep in the big bed with mom.  I am keeping those pesky squirrels out of the yard and so happy here. We are a great match and thanks everyone that helped me to find her.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1/10/21:  Thinking of downsizing but want to stay with the herding breed?  Then I’m you man. A five year old Mini Australian Shepherd fellow at 38 pounds but I need to lose a few.  I am housetrained, crate trained, good on the leash and know basic commands.  I am good with the other dogs and don’t mind the cats.  I do however get car sick and not much on going for rides.  You can see a movie of me in action at the bottom.

 

Nala (Adopted)

 

 

1/30/21:  We had to wait until all my vet work was complete and finally I am going home with Miss Gale today.  I fit just fine in that little red beetle of hers and rode quietly all the way home.  I already have a wonderful, new bed that I like very much.  There is no doubt I will be a princess here at my new home.

 

 

1/10/21: I’m a ten year old sheltie girl at 28 pounds. A little cutie that knows basic commands and housetrained. I get along with the other dogs and the cats. I will be going to the vet for vaccinations, bloodwork, spay and removal of a mammary tumor. Please say some prayers for me. Nala

Thank you Maria Maxwell,  Anna Demeria, and Paul Bates for donating to help with my surgeries.

 

Beckett (Adopted)

 

2/7/21:  This big man is headed to his new home with Gary.  I will be meeting mom when we get there and she has been looking at my picture every day.  She knew I was the right one to join the Stevenson Family.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1/10/21:  Because of COVID my person lost her job and could no longer provide for us so I came to the rescue.  I’m the big guy here at 88 pounds which is way to much for me.  Needless to say I am on the green bean diet until I lose about 18.  I’m a three year old, tri collie fellow with very good house manners.  I’m also crate trained, great on the leash and know basic commands.  Good with the other dogs and don’t even mind that cat.  When I go outside I bark to much.  We are working on that but I’m not really getting it because I have a lot to say.  My coat was shaved in the summer and it will come back pretty soon.  My people will need to know I will have a tremendous coat and a lot to take care of.

Thank you Tracy Brewer for helping with my medical cost.

 

Charm (Adopted)

 

1/24/21:  Will you just look at my great, new family and we are going to be very happy together.  At my new home I have others to play with and they have already accepted me.  I’m going to have a wonderful life with Elizabeth and William and thanks everyone that helped me to find them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1/10/21:  I’m a one year old collie girl at about 48 pounds.  I get along fine with the other dogs and don’t mind the cat.  I am a bit of a nervous girl and pretty much always moving.  I will need the company of another dog to help me get out energy and show me the things I need to learn.  I am housetrained but need to go out first thing in the morning and before bed.  I’m good on the leash and on car rides.  I need a person that will be patient and understanding with me.

Thank you Shannon Burdick for donating to help with my medical needs.

 

Katie (Adopted)

1/12/21: I’m happy to say collies are the only ones that get adopted here at this rescue.  Finally I am jumping in a car that will take me home and starting my new, indoor life with Marianne.  I know everyone at the rescue is happy for me but I know they will miss me too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1/10/21:  I am a long hair, muted calico cat and the sweetest girl you will ever meet.  I just showed up one day and nobody knows where I came from.  Not sure of my age but believe I am young.  I would very much love to be an indoor cat again and have a home.  I have been spay, vaccinated and microchipped. 

 

Shimmer (Adopted)

 

 

 

 

1/12/21:  The Smallin’s brought their adopted dog to meet us rescue collies today.  Rosie and I hit it off right away and had a great game of chase out in the yard.  On the way home we stopped for a puppuccino and wow have I been missing a good thing.  It is pretty clear I am going to be spoiled and loved with Jean and Anita.

 

1/10/21:  I am a three year old collie girl at about 50 pounds.  I am in rescue because my person felt like she had to many dogs.  That is ok because I get so much more attention here.  There are so many things I am not use to and loud noises scare me.  I love to go for rides in the car and will hop right in.  I do fine with the other dogs and I am terrified of that cat.  I have mastered crate training and do pretty good on the leash if there is nothing to scare me.  I think I will get better about this as I learn about these new things.  I am doing great with the housetraining but will sometimes submissive pee.  I just need a whole lot of love and understanding.

 

Kenston (Adopted)

1/12/21:  Headed to my new home with the Johnson’s where I will be spoiled and loved very much.  No more outside dog for me and I’m now a member of a real family.  I’m going to try and be the best boy ever for B.J. and Susan.  Thanks everyone who helped me on my journey.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1/10/21:  I’m a six year old fellow at about 53 pounds.  Most of my life I have been used as a stud dog.  Now while that may sound like a glamorous life I can tell you it is not. Only being needed to do the deed I get no special attention.  Once that is done it is back outside for me and I’m forgotten until needed again. Now I always look like I am smiling because I am so happy to be here at the rescue where I can be in the house all the time and I can no longer do the deed.  I have mastered crate training, sit and good on the leash.  I am good with the other dogs and the cats also.  I’m doing good with the housetraining but sometimes can’t resist in new places.  That will get better as the testosterone goes away and that usually takes about a month.  I ready to start my new life with a family.

Thank you Maria Maxwell for donating to help with my medical cost.

 

Brittany (Adopted)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

12/24/20:  I’m going to be in my new home for Christmas.  It is the best present a girl could want and I am already loved so much.  I’m looking forward to many years with the Jackie and the grand kids.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

12/8/20:  I was taken to the shelter after my owner passed and it was very scary.  This collie mix girl is between 8 and 10 years old and in very good health.  I was always well taken care of by my person.  My weight is about 52 pounds and I have a very manageable coat that is easy to maintain. You may want to check out my beautiful tail and one of the prettiest you  will see.  I have perfect house manners and will hop right in the car to go for a ride.  I’m not much of a barker but will let you know if I need to go outside.  I get along great with the other dogs and pay no attention to the cats, even the one that swatted at me.  I’m a very smart girl that learns quickly with a strong desire to please.  I’m going to the vet next week to have a growth on my eye removed, a small fatty tumor on my side removed and my dew claws removed.  Then I will be ready for my new home.

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

 

Diego (Adopted)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

12/13/20:  I sure did find the right person for me and I am in my new home with Scott.  He has a lot of experience with blind dogs and realizes we are no different from sighted dogs.  Honey Bee is my new collie, girl friend and she is showing me around.  As you can see I have made myself right at home and very comfortable here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

12/8/20:  I am a six to eight year old collie fellow at 66 pounds.  I have great house manners, ride well in the car and good on the leash.  I have cataracts that have progressed beyond the ability for surgery to fix therefor I cannot see.  Once I learn where everything is you would never know I am blind.  I go in and out the doggie door and enjoy exploring outside.  I had a lot of mats in my coat so it had to be clipped.  It will grow back soon.  I love to be with people and always in the same room with you.  It would benefit me to have the company of another dog to follow and play with.  I do very well with children and pretty much ignore the cats.  I am an outstanding companion who is willing to give my heart to anyone who will give their heart to me.

I am being fostered in Waynesboro, VA and if you are interested in giving me a home please contact Almost Home Collie Rescue.  https://almosthomeohio.org/meet-diego/

 

Song (Adopted)

 

11/7/20:  Joining the Johnson family today and this is my new pal, Lucy.  She is an older girl and will show me the things I need to learn as I grow up.  I know I’m going to have a wonderful life with Sally and Bobby.  Thanks to everyone that helped me to find this great family.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

11/4/20:  I just turned one year old and I am a 63 pound collie girl.  I know you have heard my story many times where my family had a baby so I went outside.  They didn’t have time for me anymore so I came to the rescue.  You can see one of my ears doesn’t stand up but I can hear just fine.  I am housetrained and get along great with the other dogs.  I am good with the cats but like to chase them if they run.

 

Odyssey (Adopted)

10/22/20:  Well I have found my new home with the Smith’s. We are going for walks every day and I am enjoying the good life.  Wayne & Jill tell me I will never be an outside dog again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

10/4/20:  Well I have had a bath, was spay, had a hernia repair and a small mammary tumor removed.  Thank goodness that tumor was benign and now that I have been spay should not have anymore.  I think I’m looking pretty good after my bath and the brushing.  I’m getting along great with the other dogs and cats are ok.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

9/21/20:  I am a four year old and 60 pound collie girl.  After the newness wore off my people put me in the backyard to live.  Finally they decided to move but my coat was so full of burs that a lot of them had to be cut out.  I have good house manners and am crate trained but don’t really need it.  I can be a little shy until I get to know you.  I’m good with the other dogs and the cat is ok with me.  I like to cut up with that puppy.  I’m going next week for my spay and a hernia repair.

 

Theo (Adopted)

10/25/20:  I am now a member of the Weese Family and doing great in my new home.  Charlene bought me a nice comfy bed and gives me treats.  Charlene likes to take me for walks where we meet the neighbors.  Lesley relaxes by brushing my coat every day.  The cat loves me and likes to snuggle in my fur.  There is no doubt I have it made with these three ladies to take care of me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

10/4/20:  Pleased to meet everyone, I am a four year old, tri color collie fellow at about 80 pounds.  I have perfect house and leash manners.  I enjoy going for walks and rides in the car.  While I would prefer a home without other dogs I don’t mind the cats.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Belle (Adopted)

10/10/20:  No more being an outside dog for me and I’m going home with the Ulmer’s.  From now on I will be an inside collie and a member of the family.  This will be my new pal Chevy who was also adopted from CRC.  Thanks everyone for helping me to find this great home.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

9/26/20:  A collie angel came to our farm today and my prayers were answered.  She had come to buy some chickens and didn’t know I was here.  When I saw her I started barking so she would see me all alone in the little dog lot.  She immediately came over to meet me and could see how starved I was for human company.  Since she had adopted a collie from CRC she begin telling the lady about the rescue and they would find me a home.  Some wonderful volunteers gave me a bath and drove me all the way to CRC.  I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am to run free in the fenced yard and have people pet me.  I am a 4 year old white collie girl at 66 pounds.  No problem with the housetraining and I get along fine with the other dogs.  Right now I do get a bit over excited and sometimes jump up.  I understand we will start working on my training and I will be going to the vet for my spay.

 

Morgan (Adopted)

 

10/7/20:  Alan has been waiting for a girl like me that will like to go on morning runs with him.  I will be great company for him while he works from home and have other collies to play with.  Looking forward to my life with the Sumner’s.

Rumble (Adopted)

 

9/25/20:  Joining the Jenkins family today and I will have a collie buddy name Jack that was adopted about a year ago.  He will show me the ropes and play with me.  I know those rescue folks are going to miss meet because they sure did hug me a lot.  I’m going to be just fine in my new home.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

9/21/20:  I’m just a little fellow at 10 weeks old and 12 pounds.  I have an outgoing personality and listen very well.  I have learned to sit for a treat and doing really well with the housetraining.  However I do not like being by myself in that crate.  I a sweet little guy that loves being with people and carrying around a good stick.

 

Rosario (Adopted)

 

9/24/20:  Going home with the Tush Family and have a 4 year old collie pal named Rex.  We play really hard together and then lay on the bed to watch TV.  Mom and I will be going to obedience training where I will learn to be more of a lady.  I sure am happy to have found Jim and Susan.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

9/21/20:  I am about one year old and 45 pound collie girl.  I am housetrained, crate trained and know basic commands.  I have a lot of energy and will need a home with another dog please.  I play hard and will need a pal that likes to horse around rough.  I can be a bit of a pest and some dogs like me and some don’t.  I’m a very loving girl and like to snuggle with people.  I am at the rescue because I killed a duck and the rescue folks think I was severely punished because when I first arrived here I would submissive pee.  I’m pretty much over that now though and know people can be good.

 

Shuri (Adopted)

 

9/26/20:  Going home with Thomas today and I will be his 4th adoption from CRC over the years.  I know I will be in really good hands as he sure is a collie lover.

Glimmer (Adopted)

8/20/20:  Finally after being spay and having a benign mammary tumor removed I am headed to my new home with Kriss.  She is going to take me to school where I will learn the basic manners.  Kriss likes a girl with personality so we are going to do just fine together.

Thank you Lizabeth Meyer and Cheryl Rader for helping with my medical cost.

 

 

Dreamer (Adopted)

8/13/20:  I am joining the Raj Family and looking forward to starting my new life with them.  Their previous smooth collie passed away and missed having a dog.  Asha is my girl and we are going to be best buds.  Thanks everyone for helping me to find this wonderful home.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8/9/20:  I’m new here at the rescue because my owner unexpectedly passed away.  I am a 3 ½ year old, tri, smooth collie girl at 48 pounds.  I am housetrained, leash trained and get along with the other dogs.  I don’t mind the cat and pay no attention to them.  I have a great personality and ready for my new home.

 

 

Bruce (Adopted)

8/9/20:  Wow have I found the perfect people for me.  Tammie and Robert wanted to downsize after losing their three collies.  When I came into the rescue they knew I would be great for the Krauss family.  I am already being spoiled and know I will have a wonderful life with them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8/2/20:  I’m a 6 year old corgi / sheltie mix fellow at 45 lbs.  When the rescue isn’t full they like to help out other breeds so here I am.  The new husband at our house was allergic to my fur and couldn’t stop sneezing.  No problem with the with the housetraining and I have very good manners.  I’m a very attentive and like to be by you side.  I do like a game of fetch and a very smart little guy.  I have the softest fur that you just want to keep rubbing.  Pretty good with the other dogs if they don’t aggravate me and cats are ok.

 

 

Mac (Adopted)

8/8/20:  I will be joining the Bell Family today and this will be my new pal, Izzy.  She is 3 years old, needed a playmate and I’m happy to say that will be me.  Their last collie was a barker so they have experience with us talkers.  It sure is good to be in my forever home with David and Simone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8/1/20:  Our new baby came early and has a heart defect.  She will be having many surgeries so mom and dad were spending all their time at the hospital.  They didn’t think it was fair to me being home all alone most of the time so I came to the rescue.  I am a 2 year old fellow at 60 pounds.  I have good house manners with the housetraining and know basic obedience commands.  I can sit, stay, come when told and ride well in the car.  I’m pretty good on the leash and we are working on that.  At my previous house we had 3 cats but I do like to chase them if they run.  I’m going to the vet on Tuesday for my neutering and a bath.  I’m good on the grooming table and don’t mind being brushed.  I enjoy playing fetch but a little ruff so trying to ease up on that.  I get along great with the other dogs and really like the girls.  Although a very smart fellow my only vise is barking when outside which we are working on.  I just have a lot to say and want everyone to hear me.  However Miss Jean has made some comments about relocating my head if I don’t stop barking. So whoever adopts me must be prepared to say “Mac Quiet” a lot and not have neighbors that that will complain about me.  Due to my energy I would be better with older children.

Thank you Sara Crayton and Deborah Brown for helping with my medical cost.

7/29/20:  Today I am headed to my new home with Christine and James.  They are long time collie lovers so I know I will be in good hands.  The car was a little high for me to jump in so they just picked my 96 lbs. up and helped me in.  Once getting home I met the whole family and they all love me.  I’m am settling in just fine and so happy to have joined the Willemain’s.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7/26/20:  Hello folks my name is Sampson and I am 8 ½ year old fellow at 96 pounds.  I’m not overweight and just a big collie like we used to be bred.  I’m a gentle, easy going kind of fellow that is housetrained, great on the leash, love car rides and will hop right in.  I’m great with the other dogs and don’t pay any attention to the cats.  My new dad was allergic to my fur so I came to the rescue.

 

Jake (Adopted)

2/19/20:  Finally, someone crazy enough to adopt me has come along.  Turns out I’m Jeff’s kind of guy and he likes a fellow with personality.  Miss Jean told him how I like to do unappreciated home renovations and my master gardener skills with unplanting and severe pruning of brushes and trees.  I even showed him some of my smooth moves like getting on the kitchen table and my athletic ability with springing into the air to knock people down.  Didn’t matter to Jeff and we are now on a road trip headed to my new home in Texas.  As we were pulling out of the driveway Miss Jean was changing the locks, put out the closed sign and blocked Jeff’s phone number.  I know she really loved me and will miss me although it may take a week, month, OK maybe not.  Jeff is the right person for me and us guys are going to bond on our long trip.  Please say prayers that I can behave and that Jeff has nerves of steel.

 

 

 

11/12/19:  I’m doing so good here at the rescue with learning manners and boundaries.  Jumping up is the hardest for me because I get so excited when I see people.  Doing better playing with the other dogs and most of them beat me up when they get tired of me pestering them.  I have a lot of energy and they usually get tired before I do.  Watching the birds come to the feeder is one of my favorite things to do.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

10/27/19:  Jake here, a two year old, tri collie fellow at 80 pounds.  I have no clue how large I am and we are working on not jumping up.  I enjoy playing with the other dogs but I am a bit rough.  My favorite way to get attention from the other dogs is to body slam them and not sure how much they like that. I just don’t know how to play and another thing we are working on here at the rescue.  I am full of energy and a very smart fellow.  I am housetrained, crate trained, know basic commands and good on the leash.

Thank you Jenny’s Cause 4 Paws, Inc., Susan Veld and Ann Leslie Valenza for helping with my medical needs.
