More About Collie Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Carmelo

      rescue
      Breed: Collie
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Collie (short coat). Hit F5 to refresh screen for current info. Carmelo is eight years old and is a people dog. He is devoted to his people and minds well. He is titled in both obedience and conformation. He has been good with our large cat, and dog family, but would enjoy a smaller group of animals. Carmelo is a happy collie when in the presence of his people. Carmelo is large and about 95 lb. He is somewhat intimidating for a collie but we have found he is very sweet. Carmelo would do best in a home where his people are near most of the time, and include him in all of their activities. He has slept in our room at night in his bed near ours and requires being close. He could be an only dog, but most dogs prefer a companion.

      Breed: Collie-Havanese Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Collie / Havanese / Mixed (medium coat). Hit F5 to refresh screen for current info. Heart Stealer Wrigley is looking for his perfect forever home. This handsome boy is only 10 months old. His Mom is a purebred collie and his Dad is a small adorable dog that resembles a Havanese. It is an adorable mix. Everyone who meets him is instantly drawn to him. He is also very smart and is already potty trained! His favorite thing in life is playtime, but he is just as happy chewing on a toy by himself as he is playing fetch. Wrigley loves the company of other dogs and cats. He is very sweet meeting new people, but a bit shy. You will need to give him a little time to get to know you before he is his typical happy-go-lucky self. We believe Wrigley would be happiest in a home with another doggy friend for him to play with and to help show him the ropes. If you have been looking for the perfect companion for your friendly outgoing dog then I think Wrigley may just be the perfect dog for your home! You will be set for a lifetime of tail wags and puppy kisses!

      Shaggy

      rescue
      Breed: Collie
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Collie (medium coat). Hit F5 to refresh screen for current info. Shaggy is a one and a half year old purebred Old Time Scotch Collie. He is young and full of puppyhood. He loves to play with other dogs, toys, and his people. He adores being snuggled and loved. He will sit and be petted for as long as you can endure it, but can be distracted with a good toy or something to chew on. Shaggy didn’t get to be a puppy, so he can be mischievous, but he wants to please his people, and figures out pretty quickly what they want him to do. He has learned not to jump on people, no longer counter surfs (although he will put his paws up if his people are sitting at the table or counter), and has not had any accidents in the house for several weeks. He’s over the puppy nipping stage, but does like to have something to chew on. He has not chewed on any furniture, but will find a stray shoe. Shaggy gets along great with other dogs and would love a doggie playmate so he can play, play, play. Shaggy will remain small-about 40 pounds, is a beautiful auburn color, and just wants a family to love. He doesn’t have much experience with children, but when he was with our grandchildren, he was excited to play with them. A cat test showed he really wants to chase and play with cats so probably best in a home without cats.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Collie (long coat). Hit F5 to refresh screen for current info. Gorgeous Remington is a 4 yr old purebred rough sable and white collie boy looking for his forever family. He came to rescue because his elderly owner had to go into assisted living. He has been well cared for and loved his whole life and is a healthy, house trained boy. Remington was an only pup in his litter and then was an only dog in his former home. While he is purely sweet, he does not “speak dog”. He is extremely playful and when other dogs tell him “enough for now” he does not stop. He will need to be an only dog or else carefully matched with a young, friendly, playful dog. Not cat tested but that could be arranged. He is sweet, friendly, out-going, and loves the water.

      Breed: Chow Chow-Collie Mix

      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Collie / Chow Chow / Mixed (long coat). Hit F5 to refresh screen for current info. Allie, Collie Mix, 40 lbs, 2 years old as of 2/14/2016 (#4 photo is of Allie as a puppy) Super sweet, active, playful, great with dogs, cats and just loves human companionship. Allie is perfectly crate trained and happily goes in and out when asked. Allie needs a home with tile or wood floors in case she has an accident due to her special needs. So far Allie is very good with house training as long as she is let in and out regularly. Some mornings she has pooped in her crate but she avoids it and its easy cleanup. Allie loves to run, play with the other dogs and chase birds. Allie stands and walks great on all 4 legs though when she overdoes it or gets to running too fast she can start to drag her rear leg thus sometimes getting dirty from my flower beds. Allies is a delightful dog with an infectious smile and wants to please. Allie was adopted and recently returned due the adopters serious health issues requiring hospitalization. Allie is looking for a home with some dogs and a family to entertain this special girl. Special Needs: HCR took Allie in at 4 months of age and spent thousands of dollars with MRI's and specialists only to learn that Allie has a subarachnoid cyst between her spinal column and the sheath that covers (L1 ). It is compressing her nerves and also pushing the bones behind it apart. Highly unusual for this to happen, can be congenital or result of trauma. We've even received reports from expert radiologist to verify findings since this is so unusual. Doctors have confirmed any surgery would be very risk and could leave her paralyzed since they'd have to cut on spinal column sheath to open cyst and relieve pressure. Additionally there is not guarantee the cyst would not return after surgery.
