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.

      Breed: Collie-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Location: Stafford, TX
      Posted Breed: Collie / Mixed (medium coat). Hit F5 to refresh screen for current info. Houston Collie Rescue pulled Ferris from Happy Day Humane Society of Big Spring, Texas. Ferris was a 5 month old puppy when the shelter took him in and is now three years old. Ferris is a border collie/collie/German shepard mix. Sweet little Ferris is a sensitive boy who gains his confidence with other dogs due to living in a shelter all his life. Ferris has come a long way in his socialization and trust of humans. He is definitely a creature of comfort, melting when given a massage and belly rubs. Ferris enjoys his walks and is perfect on a leash. Mealtime is another favorite time of the day for Ferris who will dance for his dinner! Ferris’ ideal family would be one who has another playmate he can look to for guidance and confidence. Ferris can run like the wind and would need a good sized backyard. He would do best in a family where someone is home for the most part of the day. Ferris prefers a laid-back, quiet environment and a family that can give him the love and understanding he needs. Ferris is a very loving and special boy!

      Breed: Collie-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Stafford, TX
      Posted Breed: Collie / 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.
