Below are all of the Collies that are now happily living with a new family.
THOR is a tall-standing (big) boy, sable, and about 3 years old. He has a sweet personality, is pretty laid back, likes to stay close and cuddle. Although he is not overly active he likes to play keep away and chase toys. Thor had been in a shelter and was recently turned in to TCCR by someone who had adopted him but couldn’t keep him. Despite that history, he’s moved into his fosterhome as if he’s always lived there and is very well adjusted. He also gets along nicely with the dogs and cats in the fosterhome. According to his fostermom, she hasn’t found anything negative about Thor except that he could lose a few pounds (he’s an excellent eater).
OWEN is a 7 year old male white collie with sable markings. Owen was turned in because his family could no longer give him the quality time he deserves. Owen has a fear of storms and some separation anxiety issues and takes an inexpensive medication to help him. His foster family is working on these issues and he will need patient and loving leadership from his adoptive family to help him overcome his anxieties.
Owen has hearing loss in his left ear, so he may not respond if excess noise in the environment masks your voice. Owen gets along well with his foster home’s older dog and came from a house with a 17 month old toddler, so we think he can do well in most settings. He likes car rides, long walks, and is very friendly. Contact his foster home at DF@CollieRescue.com.
JERICHO is a lovely, loving 8-1/2 year old sable male who gets along with everyone and knows no strangers. His sweet and sunny disposition wins him friends everywhere he goes! Jericho was turned in because his owners were moving and couldn’t take him with them. He’s good with other dogs and cats alike; seems to like children that he’s been exposed to. He’d love to have another dog to play with. Jericho loves car rides, and walks like a gentleman on the leash and doesn’t pull. Jericho has a seizure disorder that is said to be stress induced; he’s on daily inexpensive medication for this, which is controlling it very well (hasn’t had a seizure in the over three months he’s been fostered). If you can see it in your heart to give him a chance, you won’t be sorry. For more information, contact Jericho at BN@collierescue.com
SAM is a wannabe collie (a collie mix). A TCCR member got a call from a high kill shelter on the west side of the state telling her that they had a collie. She hurried over and pulled…Sam. There may not be much collie blood in Sam, but he has all the collie mentality one could want. He is good with other dogs, cats and kids. He loves to be petted. He was probably neglected so he REALLY appreciates being fussed over. If you are looking for a sweet, gentle boy who will truly be devoted to you…Sam’s the man!
This is MISTY, a 10 year old sable and white female, an extremely gentle girl who is looking for her forever home. Since she was a pretty sable puppy she was called Misty, sure to bring a twinkle to your eye just like the Emerald Isle. Misty has a problem with thunderstorms and loud firecrackers like many collies (and many other breeds for that matter). Her new owner should be aware that she needs to be reassured of her safety when there is a storm. A safe, quiet place away from the noise will help greatly. Misty is excellent riding in a car, loves walks, and gets along well with other dogs and cats. If you would like to open your home to a loving, gentle girl, Misty may be just the one you’re looking for.
This pretty girl’s name is CASEY. Case is a white collie with blue merle markings and is 6 years old. She was turned over to Collie Rescue when her owner passed away. Casey is very friendly and loves being around children and adults. She likes taking walks and is good on a leash. She also like car rides. Casey has proved to be trustworthy when left alone and knows her basic commands. She is well behaved around cats. Casey had to adjust to life in her foster home with other dogs wanting to share toys. With time and patience she began playing and getting along with the other dogs. She fits right in as part of the family. Casey has lots of love and companionship to give to a new forever family.
FINLEY is a 7 year old tri-color male Collie that was picked up as stray and spent some time in the dog pound. He likes other dogs, cats and kids, but he is still learning his manners and is a little over-enthusiastic. For that reason, he might not be a good fit for a home with small children as he could knock them down. Finley is housebroken and can be trusted not to destroy things in the home. He walks well on a leash and is a lot of fun, he loves chew toys and playing tug with you.
BRANDI-LYNN is a 6 year old Sable female who spent the last several months working to regain her health. She came to TCCR underweight, with allergy issues, and heartworm positive.
Brandi-Lynn was successfully treated for heartworm and will now be on preventative year-round. Her allergy concerns have been successfully treated with a commercially available allergy-free food, allergy medication, and thyroid medication. Because of these needs, we are looking for just the right family to welcome this special girl.
Brandi-Lynn is housetrained and trustworthy left loose when the family is not at home. She loves car rides, kitties, and other dogs. She is obedient and walks well on a leash.
CAETO is 4 year old rough mahogany sable female. The first thing that comes to mind when describing Caeto, is that she is very sweet and loving. Once she gets used to her surroundings, she will get attached, will want to follow you, and lay at your feet.
Caeto is every bit a lady; she is housebroken, trustworthy when left alone, does very well with other pets like dogs cats and birds. Caeto knows basic commands and is good when walking on a leash. She also enjoys car rides. Caeto would do equally well with a young family with children or with an older adult.
She was loved by her previous family, but circumstances forced them to give her up. Caeto needs a second chance with a new family; could it be you?
TUCKER is a 9 year old Tri-color male collie. This big boy is verys weet and has a gentle hearted spirit. He knows his commands and gets along well with dogs, cats, birds, horses, rabbits and even goats! He especially loves children that are approximately 10 years and older.
