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
      Age: Adult
      Location: Stafford, TX
      Posted Breed: Collie / Mixed (medium coat). Hit F5 to refresh screen for current info. Buttons is estimated to be one year old and is a healthy collie mix boy, neutered and fully vaccinated. He weighs less than 50 lb now and we expect he will mature to around 50 lb. He loves to play fetch and will bring you the ball and put it in your hand. He is good with dogs and very sweet with children and would make a good family dog. We have been working on leash training him and he is walking very well with a gentle leader. He is energetic but is very good at behaving indoors. He has been trying to challenge authority lately and we are working with him on that. He tried to counter surf but we stopped him immediately when we saw him. He does get very excited when he sees people running and REALLY wants to run with them. We think his owner needs to be someone that likes to go on walks or runs. He now sits and waits until his food bowl is on the ground and you say “eat” when it is feeding time. He LOVES to get wet. He discovered the pond in our backyard and before we could stop him he was rolling around and swimming in it. He also crosses his legs about 90% of the time when he is sitting down. It’s very funny to watch him!

      Posted Breed: Collie (medium coat). Hit F5 to refresh screen for current info. Hi! I’m Anan. I was born in China and didn’t have a very good life. Someone put me in a cage and was going to sell me for meat! But a very nice lady took me to a safe place and put my picture on the Internet. Another nice lady in Texas saw my picture and wanted me to come to America. But I was pretty sick, I had something called a tumor on my chest. The lady from Texas is part of a rescue that saves Collie dogs like me and they paid all my vet bills for getting the tumor removed and getting me healthy. Finally, after a long time, I got on a big airplane and flew to San Francisco, and then another airplane and flew to another place called Houston. I was very nervous at first because everything smelled different and everybody talked funny. But I’m getting used to it, and the two other collies are helping me learn lots of new things! Let me tell you all about me! I’m five or six year old (I can’t remember for sure). And I’m kind of small, I weigh 50 pounds. The vet says that’s a good weight for me, but my foster brothers are lots bigger than me! We all get along very well and I get along with kitties too. Since I didn’t get enough to eat in China, I’m always interested in getting food. Sometimes I get scolded for something called “counter surfing”, I just call it looking for food. I love treats! I learned that sit means put your butt on the ground and if you do it, you get yummy treats or some loving. I like the loving, but I like the treats better! When I get scared or nervous (like with loud sounds), walking around in circles helps me calm down. I don’t do that much anymore because I’m feeling more secure and confident every day. And I do like to love on you a lot, so maybe you should have older kids, I might scare toddlers. But if you sit down, I will crawl up in your lap for loving and kissing. I’m neutered (ouch) and up to date on all my shots. I’m looking for a forever home where I can stay and gets lots of love and never be afraid again. If you live in the Houston or south Texas area and want me to come live with you, let Houston Collie rescue know and send in your application. In the meantime, I’ll be learning more English, my foster Mom’s Mandarin is terrible!

      Breed: Collie
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Stafford, TX
      Posted Breed: Collie (long coat). Hit F5 to refresh screen for current info. Molly is a healthy 4 year old purebred collie. She is a true testament to the wonderful collie spirit. She came to us from a broken and abusive home. Upon her arrival to rescue she was excited, fearful, playful, and so very confused. One moment she was coming up for love and pets and the next she would kind of shy away before immediately coming back for more love. We quickly discovered she did not like being pulled by her collar, but that she was happy to walk on a leash. When asked to sit, she immediately fell to the ground and showed us her belly. It didn’t take long though for her to start enjoying those belly rubs. The first time we gave her a toy to play with it had to have been one of the most joyous things we had ever seen. Her face was pure happiness and excitement as she ran with the toy-bunny hopping and pouncing around like a puppy. Molly gets along great with the other dogs and cats. It is just people that she needs a chance to warm up to. Once you meet her, it will only be a matter of a day or two before you find her sitting in your lap for love and cuddles. Molly would do best with an experienced dog owner in a home without children. She is completely house trained and is sure to be an excellent companion to her people.

He likes other dogs and is good with cats. Jasper prefers to be in the house, and is house-trained. Jasper is an example of why we love senior collies. He is blind in one eye but that has never stopped him. Jasper, surprisingly, can go over a 4 ft fence and must have a home with a 6 ft fence. He would prefer a home with other animal companions and his people need to be around him most of the day. Jasper is a pleasant, fun companion.
