"Desmond" (aka:  "Desi or Des") is a 7 year old Sable colored Rough Collie. He spent his entire life with a senior gentleman who passed away suddenly,  leaving him an 'orphan' if you will, and homeless.  Desi is tall, long, and weighs 90 pounds.  He is NOT overweight.  He is a sweet, loving, and playful boy who is housetrained, crate trained and gorgeous! 

 

Desi needs to be your only pet.  He is very dominant and doesn't play well with others.  He is great on the leash, doesn't pull, sits, lies down, shakes hands, and is working on other commands.  He seems to like children, but hasn't had a lot of exposure to them.  Desi loves to go for walks, as well as rides in the car.  He even seems to know what happens at the drive thru at McDonalds!  He was sound asleep in the back of the vehicle until we pulled through the line to collect MY food, he popped up and put his head to the window, expecting his share.  Although it was very cute, he didn’t get any. :-(

Desi will not be able to be off leash, go to a dog park, doggie day care, nor be contained by an underground fence.  He also needs obedience classes both to bond with his new adopter and to learn respect.  If you think Desi might fit into your lifestyle, please contact his foster mom at: beth@collierescue.com
