Posted Breed: Spaniel / Mixed (medium coat). Meet Liberty! Isn't she a major cutie? She is a mix of various breeds, and sometimes those make the cutest pups! Liberty is a young gal who is about 1 to 2 years old and weighs 20 pounds. Liberty is sweet and gentle. Everyone who meets her falls in love because she is such a cuddle bug! Even though she is a puppy, she is not high energy and does not require a ton of exercise to wear her out. However, she does like to run around and play each day, especially with her toys. She loves to play with other dogs, and we are hoping to find her a home where she will have another young dog to play with. She also would do best in a home without younger children. She also likes to nibble on some things, which is normal for a puppy like her. Overall, Liberty loves to be the center of loving attention! We are teaching Liberty to walk on a leash and get acclimated to new sights and sounds. She gets nervous in new surroundings and around new dogs, but once she learns that everything will be OK, she eases right in and joins in on the fun! She will be a wonderful "cuddle bug" for a loving family! Contact CRI if you're interested in learning more about Liberty. If you are interested in rescuing a collie, please complete this short adoption questionnaire. Our standard adoption fee is $350. This fee helps us to cover the expense of providing each dog with a Health Exam, Rabies/DHPP vaccines, Heartworm Test, Heartworm Preventative, Flea & Tick Protection, Microchip, Neuter/Spay, and a Bath. Thank you for your consideration in adopting a collie in need!!!

A.K.A. : A mongrel, mixed-breed dog
Overview: A mongrel, mutt, or mixed-breed dog, is a dog that is not the result of breeding within an existing breed or to modify or create a breed and belongs to no breed. In the United States, the term "mixed-breed" is a favored synonym over "mongrel" among many who wish to avoid negative connotations associated with the latter term. The implication that such dogs must be a mix of defined breeds may stem from an inverted understanding of the origins of dog breeds. Pure breeds have been, for the most part, artificially created from random-bred populations by human selective breeding with the purpose of enhancing desired physical, behavioral, or temperamental characteristics. Dogs that are not purebred are not necessarily a mix of such defined breeds. Therefore, among experts and fans of such dogs, "Mongrel" is still the preferred term.

More About Mutt 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.

      Lil' Girl

      Breed: Collie-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Chantilly, VA
      Posted Breed: Collie / Shetland Sheepdog Sheltie / Mixed (long coat). Check out “Lil’ Girl” - an adorable collie (maybe sheltie) mix. She is 9 months young and about 40 pounds. Although young in age, she has already experienced life at an animal shelter. Her original owners gave her up, and luckily our Collie Rescue learned about her and took her in. She is now living with a foster family until she finds her new forever home! When she first arrived, she was very shy – happy to hide in her crate and only wanted to go outdoors for potty breaks. However, it didn’t take long for her to realize that she could trust the humans and canines around her – and she is having a great time playing with (and learning from) all the dogs at her foster home. Her playful spirit has emerged! Although she can be a bit shy at first with strangers and new places, Lil’ Girl quickly warms up and will joyfully follow her trusted human around the house and yard. When she is inside, Lil’ Girl is happy to lie on a dog bed and just observe the activities around her. But when she is outside, she enjoys trekking around the yard with her nose to the ground, investigating all the new scents, doing a bit of digging, and romping around with her canine buddies. All that fun doesn’t stop her from frequently checking in with her foster mom, which earns her an ear rub -- or even better, a little butt scratch. Lil’ Girl is a perfect houseguest – she hasn’t had an accident indoors or tried to chew on anything inappropriate. And after just a little bit of work, she is content to gently accept treats from her foster mom’s hand. This sweet, affectionate little lady will be happiest in a home with a fenced-in yard, an outgoing resident dog, and a relatively quiet suburban or rural lifestyle. If you are interested in rescuing a collie, please complete this short adoption questionnaire. Our standard adoption fee is $350. This fee helps us to cover the expense of providing each dog with a Health Exam, Rabies/DHPP vaccines, Heartworm Test, Heartworm Preventative, Flea & Tick Protection, Microchip, Neuter/Spay, and a Bath.

      Breed: Collie
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Baby
      Location: Chantilly, VA
      Posted Breed: Collie (long coat). Meet sweet Bailey! She is a young puppy who will turn one-year-old in May. Can she spend her first birthday party with you? She is a bit shy, but is quite a sweetheart! She really opens up with other dogs though, so we’re hoping to find Bailey a home where she can live with another confident dog. She also does well with cats! We think she would do best in a home without children. Bailey is still getting used to new situations and environments, especially neighborhoods where there is a lot of activity and loud noises. Her foster family is helping expose her to new people. They say Bailey has shown herself to be a typical smart collie – easy to train and quick to learn! Yummy treats are a favorite thing to keep her focused, but toys are what really brings out her playfulness.
