(adopted)  Buddy is an 8 year old male smooth collie.  He comes when you call him, and interacts with the family.  Buddy comes up to you with a wagging tail, waiting for you to pet him, or give him a good scratch between the ears.   He has come a long way in a short time.  He no longer hides shyly in the background, but enjoys being part of the family.  When he hears the opening of the treat jar, he hurries into the kitchen with the other collies ready to claim his prize. 

When he first came to TCCR, Buddy shied away from my hand and wouldn't take a treat.  He has made a complete turnaround in that area.  Buddy enjoys playing outside and running with my other collies, he has even learned what dog toys are for by watching the other collies.  He is one smart and sweet boy.  He proudly walks around with 'his' toy.  Buddy spent his life as an outside dog.  He now enjoys the comforts of being in a home. He is house broken and has very good inside manners.

Buddy is a very gentle and sensitive soul. He would make an excellent companion, and with a little time and patience will get used to a new home. 

If you have room in your heart and home please have an approved application and contact Buddy's foster mom Mary@collierescue.com.
