UPDATE, 9/9/13
Lizzie has now had her final checkup and her dental and is ready for adoption!

UPDATE, 5/4/13:

Lizzie has had her initial vet checkup and is in good health. A dental cleaning is recommended and will be scheduled when she sheds 10-15 pounds. Watch those treats, Liz, and let’s go for a walk!

Lizzie, a 10-year old sable female, came to us as an owner turn-in. She has been well cared for and is currently being evaluated and vetted.

Hey, everyone. My name is Lady, short for Ladybug! I was named by one of the little people in my foster family. I’m a sable and white, approximately 10-year-old, smooth collie girl. I’m a lucky girl at that. I was found by someone north of Saginaw who tried for ten days to find my owners. That person turned me over to the Midland County Humane Society where someone gave TCCR a call. When my foster parents picked me up, I was ultra skinny and had crap (excuse my language, after all, my name is Lady) in my eyes the consistency of Elmer’s glue, but green as grass. I also had blood in my stool. Soon after that, I began vomiting clear liquid with fresh blood. When I went to the hospital, I found out I had THREE different types of worms and an eye infection.

So, I decided right then and there, I was going to beat this stuff and you know what? I’m doing it!! I have another round of worm treatment to go, but those nasty worms really aren’t an issue anymore. I’m putting on weight and eating well. This food stuff is pawsome! I’ve been to the groomer (didn’t really care for the nail cutting, though) and now I am beautiful and I know it!! I totally don’t look ten. I look younger and I feel younger, too, because I run the fenceline, chasing the neighbor’s dog, and she’s fast! I am a very different dog in the house, though, and move very slowly. I don’t want to break anything, plus foster Mom and Dad don’t think I’m used to being in a house. I haven’t told them yet if I am or if I’m not.

Let’s see, what else can I tell you about me? I’m great with people and other dogs. I much prefer little people, though, and won’t leave my little one’s side. I rub against people’s legs like I’m a cat. Also, when I greet people, I position my head so that I receive an obligatory kiss on the top of my forehead!

My foster parents say I’m a joy to have around and they have nothing negative to say about me. I’m house-trained, but I have no other training (although my little person is working miracles with me). I ride fabulous in the car, plus I’m kinda small, so I don’t take up a lot of room. Oh, and one more thing, I don’t bark.

Ella is new to the rescue. She is currently being evaluated and will be available for adoption at a later date.

Hi, I'm Sophie, a 1 1/2 year-old sable rough collie girl. I was turned in because my owner is moving to another state and unable to take me with her. I've been very well taken care of, impeccably groomed, and given much love. I'm active, full of energy and would be a good candidate for agility training. I am good with children as well as all the adults I meet. I love going for walks and car rides. I know my basic commands and have been trained to do several tricks by my previous owner.

Laddie came to TCCR as a stray. He’s a petite, tri-color collie boy, approximately 1 ½ years old. After he puts on some more weight, he will get neutered, so he's currently under a medical hold. He’s a real lover, and wants to be with his people or other dogs, unless it’s nap time, then he will find a little nook to curl up and sleep. He is extremely loving, sweet, and very affectionate. 

He does the "collie rub". He likes to rub against your head, and he will do it to other dogs as well. Laddie has finally started to play with his two collie brothers and Austrian shepherd sister. He prances and bounces when he gets excited during play, but he still gets tired quickly after a romp with the other dogs, as he came to us underweight. He is starting to play with toys a little, but is not really sure what to do with them. His "siblings" are teaching him, though. He doesn’t bother smaller animals; he just wants to play with everyone.

He will bark to let you know if he needs to go outside or if he thinks it’s time to be fed! He will share a water bowl (drink at the same time as other dogs in the house), but will push other dogs out of the way to get to their food (another by-product of being underweight). He has dumped the inside garbage can over searching for food, so his foster parents have had to put the can behind closed doors. He’s not a big fan of being brushed, but will tolerate it for a few minutes. However, he does fine with a bath.

He is like a flower waiting to blossom; his wonderful personality shows through more and more each day. This sweetheart is looking for his “fur”ever home … could it be with you?

Hi everyone…my name is Patches, a 2-year-old female tri-color sweetheart of a collie girl! I’m new to rescue and I’m currently in the process of being evaluated, vetted and groomed at my new foster home. My prior owners couldn’t keep me anymore. They also couldn’t keep my mom, Bella, or my sister, Daisy, who are also now in rescue (see their bios on this page).

Hi everyone…my name is Daisy, a 2-year-old sable female, also known as a powderpuff sweetheart! I’m new to rescue and I’m currently in the process of being evaluated, vetted and groomed at my new foster home, so I’m not available just yet. My prior owners couldn’t keep me anymore. They also couldn’t keep my mom, Bella, or my sister, Patches, who are also now in rescue (see their bios on this page)

Hey everyone, my name is Bella and I’m new to the rescue. I’m 4 years old and I’m a sable female sweetie. I’m currently being evaluated by my foster dad, so I’m not ready for adoption yet, but there will be new info on me in the days ahead. I can tell you, though, that my previous owners could no longer care for me or my daughters (Daisy and Patches, see their bios on this page), so we all came into rescue. Can you believe I have two daughters…I mean I look so young and beautiful! Anyway, foster dad has welcomed me with open arms and will be taking me to the groomers next week, so if you think I’m pretty now, I will be blindingly beautiful next week. More pictures will be posted then.

Hi everyone. Please allow me to introduce myself. I’m Sheba and I’m a 7 year-old sable white female. Watching the Olympics these last few days and seeing all the British Royalty, I was just thinking that I could easily belong to collie royalty, if there is such a thing. I’m a very good representative of the collie breed. I love to be around people, which is a very important thing when you are a royal. Royals greet people you know. I’m very good at that. 

I do very well with car rides. That’s important as a royal, too. That way I can wave to my admirers without getting car sick. I’m smart and learn things very quickly. If you adopted me, I could help us outsmart the paparazzi. I’m fabulous on a leash, love to take walks and I do well with other dogs. Again, I’m totally royal material.

I do have one flaw. I don’t care for cats and am not good with them. Even royals have faults. (I bet Duchess Kate could even tell us a few things about Prince William.)

If you have room in your heart and home for me, I will shower you with royal attention and love.
