Callie is a 4 year-old, tri smooth female collie. She's good with other dogs and cats while at her foster home. Callie is very smart and affectionate, loves to play with her toys, and very well adjusted to her household. She is good on a leash and likes going on her walks.

Trace

This is “Trace,” a wonderful 9 year-old, blue merle rough male. He is a good size male, weighing in at 63 lbs.

Trace is affectionate and playful. He does not act like an older dog. He loves to run, play and interact with you and other dogs.

His foster mom suspects he was kept outside. She has been working with him and Trace has learned basic commands and indoor manners, as well as climbing steps.

Trace has been a good student. He can be mischievous at times and he will counter surf. Trace`s loving temperament will make him a good companion and loyal friend.

Valentine

Valentine is a 1.5 year-old, tri rough male collie. He is a little sweetheart at 55 lbs and he's pretty mellow for such a young dog, although he is playful. He is potty trained and he's fine with parrots, so we don't think he has a prey drive.

Valentine does get car sick and he is afraid of storms and fireworks and will find a place to hide where he feels safe. He came to us unsocialized with humans and dogs and is a little timid around people at first. He is fine around other collies.

Valentine is very inquisitive and seems to learn very quickly. Although we have been working with him at leash training, he still has a long way to go and is going to need time and patience with his training. Valentine has an unusual bark for a collie. He kind of woofs once, then does a howly type bark after that, but he is not a big barker.

Dora

Dora is a 5 year-old, smooth sable female. She is good with cats and dogs. She would do well with a dog-friendly canine friend.

Dora adjusted very quickly to her foster home. She is timid around strangers, but once she gets a chance to warm up to someone, she does fine.

Dora is quiet and not a barker. She does not do well when taken out of her familiar area, due to her lack of socialization. Due to her fear issues in new situations, she is a flight risk. She would be best in a home without small children, who may leave doors and gates open.

Dora is very sweet and a good companion. She enjoys playing with toys. If you have room in your heart and home, please consider this sweet girl.

Lady (2)

Luck be a Lady. Lady is a beautiful collie gal and approximately 2-3 years old. She was very lucky some good samaritans hosted her while they tried to find her family. Lady’s family never stepped forward, so she was placed with the Tri-County Collie Rescue. She adapted very quickly to her foster home and new doggie pals.

Lady is very intelligent. In a very short time, she learned basic commands, how to walk beautifully on a leash, and figured out the doggie door with little help from the humans. Lady is crate trained and knows that she has to “kennel up” during certain times of the day.

Following her foster family around the house seems to be a favorite activity. She loves human snuggle time, especially if belly rubs are involved. This gal is a pure delight.


Sophie (2)

Sophie is a 2-year old, petite, smooth-coat collie mix who has a zest for life. This gal was so excited to leave the shelter and has settled into her foster home very quickly. She is very smart and in a short time, has learned basic commands and knows how to give paw and roll over.

Sophie loves to go for walks, but gets a little excited when she sees other dogs strolling by even though she is fine with her furry foster home friends who are along for the adventure. Her favorite yard activity is playing fetch and she does it with skill and grace. This little gal, 40 pounds, is terrific in the house and loves going for car rides. She does not chew on things, loves the doggie toy box, and will only get on furniture if invited.

She has full run of her foster home while the humans are away. Sophie will also let you know if someone is at the front door even before there is a knock. She clings to her foster dad, loves to be petted, and frequently snoozes near his feet. Sophie ignores cats, but would do best in a home with a submissive companion and older children. A home with an above ground fence is also preferred.

Sheila is one of our current hospice foster collies. She is a senior girl at 12 1/2 years old who experiences mobility issues due to her arthritis and age. Since being in a wheelchair accessible home, without having to deal with stairs, she has a better quality of life in her senior years. Sheila is also taking a joint supplement and is on a pain management protocol.
