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.

      Anan

      rescue
      Breed: Collie
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Collie (medium coat). Hit F5 to refresh screen for current info. Sweet, beautiful Anan is estimated to be 5 yr old. We rescued him from the meat market in China. We just couldn’t stand the thought of this beautiful boy ending up being food on somebody’s plate. Anan is good with dogs and cats too. He needs a friendly doggie playmate since he just loves to play. He is surprisingly well adjusted and out-going given his history. Very small children are a bit intimidating to him so he would do best with older kids. He is a smaller collie around 50 lb. The ideal home for Anan would be calm and quiet with another dog. Anan doesn’t like the sound of loud machinery and will spin and bark. If you call him to you and pet him he snaps out of it. Still would be best if his home was in a quiet area. Won’t you give this beautiful boy a chance at a normal life as a member of the family?

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Collie (long coat). Hit F5 to refresh screen for current info. Baxter is a sweet and mellow 9 year old male with a honey colored coat. He loves to snuggle and is a big teddy bear. He is house broken and very well behaved. Baxter gets along well with other dogs but, since he's older and less active, he doesn't necessarily need a playmate to be happy. He likes to hang out in the back yard, as long as he doesn't have to stay there a long time. He was kept outside full time alone before he was rescued, so he is loves being indoors with air conditioning, a soft doggy bed, and human affection. He's a true love bug. Just look at that face!

      Age: Adult

      Posted Breed: Collie (short coat). Hit F5 to refresh screen for current info. Katy is a sweet, beautiful, purebred smooth coated collie looking for her forever home. She is perfectly house trained and has never had an accident in the house. She goes to the back door and whines to let me know she needs out. Katy loves to play with other dogs and would be happiest with a dog to play with. She is being fostered in a home with a cat and no problem there. Katy protected her dog food bowl from other dogs so I feed her in a crate. She takes treats gently from my hand beside all the other dogs and I believe this is fading away now that her meals are regular. She has excellent house manners, no chewing or barking issues. She has become such a snuggler and I hope her forever home allows her to sleep with them as she does in her foster home. We are working on her leash skills as she pulls hard initially but settles down after a bit. She is a wonderful collie girl deserving of the very best home.

      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.

      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.
