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.
Breed Group: Unspecified
Country of Origin: Unknown

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.

      Breed: Collie
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Chantilly, VA
      Posted Breed: Collie (long coat). This is Luke, and he just arrived to Collie Rescue, Inc.! We rescued him from a shelter in Delaware, and now he's looking for a new home. He is sweet, energetic, and playful with all! He loves to be with humans, and also loves to play with other dogs. Luke knows some basic commands like sit and down, and comes when called. We estimate his age to be between 2-4 years old, but based on his energy level, we think he is closer to 2 years old. He's crate trained and housebroken, but does like to jump a bit so we're working with him on that. If you try to force him to do something, he'll respond well if you approach it calmly and positively. If he feels forced to do something he isn't ready for, he will be a bit resistant. That being said, Luke sure does love his treats and food - he'll do anything with food involved! Overall, Luke is a super happy, sweet, and friendly boy! He'll be a fun addition to a loving family!

      Posted Breed: Collie (long coat). Lilly is two years old and is a really sweet girl. She loves to give you kisses, and she loves to go on long walks and romps! She is as smart as a whip too. She knows basic commands, comes when called, rides well in cars, and walks well on a leash. At her foster home, she has started to patrol the back yard for critters, and almost nabbed a mouse! Squirrels do get her attention, but she doesn't go nuts. She is somewhat playful when outside and will play fetch and return with her tennis ball toy for as long as you keep throwing it. Lilly needs a home without cats. Contact Collie Rescue, Inc. for more information about how to adopt lovely Lilly!

      rescue
      Breed: Collie
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Chantilly, VA
      Posted Breed: Collie (long coat). NOTE: KB is in the Senior Care Program at Collie Rescue Inc. and has a permanent foster home. If you are interested in making a donation to support KB's continued care, please visit www.savecollies.org. KB is a handsome collie guy! CRI recently rescued him and we believe he is about 10 years old or more, but he still has plenty of energy and a healthy appetite. Because of his older age, he is a bit hard of hearing but that doesn’t stop him from finding ways to understand you. When he sees the leash come out, he gets a big smile on his face and know it’s time for a w-a-l-k! He's currently in a foster home where he is settling in and checking things out. KB has lots of curiosity and loves to investigate everything around the house, including the other dogs who live at his foster home. He gets along with both dogs and cats. KB is very well house-trained and sleeps through the night, especially when a comfortable dog bed is involved. There are two things we know KB loves… First, he loves butt scratches! He likes them so much that he almost falls over when he leans into them. Second, he loves feeling the breeze in his hair! When driving, he likes to stick his face out the window and smell the air whipping by. This old man may have some years on him, but he is adorable and full of gratitude! 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.
