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.

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.

COOPER is a beautiful blue merle who will be turning 10 years old in November. He’s a big boy at 88 lbs (could stand to lose a few) who is healthy and active. Taking walks and playing with his stuffed squeaky toys are his recreational outlets. Cooper is a gentle dog with his humans, loves hugs and being petted; he really enjoys the one-on-one attention and follows his people around like a good companion dog should. Since he has some show ring experience in his background, he is a dream to groom and handle. He’s a quiet dog having been debarked and should not bother neighbors as he cheers on the bicyclists and skateboarders that go by. The best home for Cooper would be as an only dog unless his new owner is very dog savvy and can handle the inevitable competition with other dogs.

BABE is a 6 year old female, spayed, up to date on shots and on heartworm preventative. She is a friendly girl who is adjusting to indoor living after kennel life. She is crate trained and has had no accidents in the house. Babe walks well on a leash which is good because she is overweight and needs the exercise. Babe comes when called and sits when asked. She is learning to shake hands, go up and down stairs and play nicely with my 10 yr old male.

Babe likes squeaky toys and has retrieved tennis balls when thrown for her. She likes to be right in the middle of things, gives her opinion when asked but stops when told to. So far she does not like the vacuum cleaner when it’s turned on. There are no kids or cats in her foster home so her reaction to either isn’t known but with her pleasing personality she’ll likely adjust to most situations. If you are looking for a dog that will be a good companion, Babe could be the dog for you!

KRIKIT is a 6 year old tri rough female. She has a very sweet temperament and likes to be around people. She would do equally well living with an older family or a family with young children. Kriket likes to play but is not overly rough where she jumps up on you or would knock down a small child. She is good with cats and dogs and is trustworthy when left alone in the house. She enjoys taking walks and is good on a leash. She is well behaved when riding in the car. Her favorite thing to do is snuggling up with her human family. One cute thing Krikit will do to get your attention, is sit by you and put her front paw up in the air as if she is waving at you.

MATTHEW is a sweet, 8 year old Sable male that fell on hard times. The son put his dad in a nursing home so the daughter of the 90+ year old owner took her mom back to California for a visit before sending her home to Argentina….leaving Matthew tied up outside with the neighbor feeding him and taking him for the occasional walk!

Mattie (Matthew is just SO formal! <g>) is housebroken, current on shots, just neutered, loves kids, obviously does well with older folks and a little confused by the cat. He will sit and stare at the cat, then start to bark at her, never tries to chase her, but just can’t quite figure her out. He likes to be as close to me at all times as he can be. Mattie is no slouch though, he and my 2 year old “pup” race around the backyard playing tag and herding each other whenever they get outside. If you have room for a really sweet gentleman, take a look at Matthew!

GLORY is a wonderful 9 yr. old, petite girl who is very well-mannered, obedient and playful. Young in spirit for her age. She loves a game of fetch and being tossed her toys. She will cuddle next to you on the couch, and sleep at the foot of her master’s bed, always returning the love and praise she receives with a collie smile. She is gentle with children and very good with other dogs and also cats. Glory does have skin allergies and will need to stay on “grain-free food” as well as an inexpensive medication and Vitamin E to maintain good health. Glory will not do well in a stressful environment. She is instead suited for a calm household, possibly being a wonderful companion for a retired couple. She came to us from a good home and a caring owner.

Hi, I’m “Paris”. My foster mom affectionately calls me “Evening in Paris” (probably because I’m so beautiful!). The vet thinks I’m about six years old. I’m a very gentle, sweet and smart collie! I try very hard to please. I’ve been in two homes before my foster home, but folks treated me pretty well and gave me some obedience training and housebreaking.

But, I hadn’t seen a vet in a long time. Now things are better! I’ve been spayed and all my vaccinations are up to date. I have a minor eye problem that the vet says is ‘benign’ but no other health problems. I didn’t get much food in my other home and, according to the vet, I was underweight. But I get LOTS to eat here and have two  other collies to play with. I used to climb up on the counters to get food but my foster mom says I don’t have to do that anymore, so I don’t. She says I’m “quick to learn.”

I love to run around the yard, but mostly I love to stay by my foster mom just in case she needs me to do anything. She calls me her ‘Velcro’ collie! I’d love to have a home where I could be the center of attention even though I get along with other dogs. I’m not sure what a “cat” is as we don’t have any here. I love to go for rides and used to go into a crate, too, but not here. If you’d like a sweet collie who’d give you all the love in the world, please contact my foster mom!

Update on Paris: I’ve had such a FUN day today! My foster mom and her granddaughter took me to a “Pet Day” at their local feed store. I was introduced to Alpaca’s, Llama’s, bunnies (boring!), goats, a pig, and even a miniature horse! I really liked all the different animals and my foster mom said I did r
eally good, not barking or getting upset with all the noise and different smells. And the tall furry, funny ones sure did SMELL! I met lots of other dogs too and so many people, big ones and little ones, petted me that I lost count. They all told my foster mom how beautiful I am, and of course she agreed! I shook hands and acted just like the lady I really am. I’ve put on some weight now and the vet says I’m SO healthy! Her granddaughter played with me and brushed me until my coat shown. No wonder everybody thinks I’m beautiful!
