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: Beagle-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Bella is looking for someone with a kind heart to love her, and she has tons of cuddles ready to give! We know she will make a wonderful addition to a very lucky family! Bella is a wonderful, sweet girl looking for a new home. She is approximately 7 years old and we believe she is a beagle mix. Bella is currently staying in a foster home, and her foster moms says she is a real sweetie pie! She has been enjoying a wonderful temporary home with dog toys, a soft bed, warm meals, extra treats, and new friends (dogs and cats) to play with! Once she has a fun play session, she loves to settle down to take a nap. Bella may be somewhat timid at first, but once she sniffs you out, she will be sure to steal your heart! She's full of glee when you come home at night, making sure you know how much she loves you. And when it's time to settle in for the evening, she thinks snuggles on the couch are a little piece of heaven. She went to the vet in October and had her teeth cleaned, which means she can give sweet kisses to everyone! Bella has splayed feet and is on medication (Gabapentin) to help with some of the discomfort in her legs. We aren’t sure what caused her feet to look the way they do, but the medication has been helping her and she doesn’t mind being a unique and a special dog! Despite her legs, she loves to romp around the backyard, play in the leaves, and smell the wind blowing through the trees. She doesn't let anything hold her back. Bella is otherwise really healthy, eats great, and is full of hound enthusiasm! She will often bark to alert her people of new strangers, but she doesn't bark much inside the house. Her foster mom says Bella is really smart and knows many commands like "sit," "shake," "sit pretty," and "beg. Bella seems deferential to smaller dogs. If her future home has larger dogs, she may do better if the large dogs have mellow personalities. This sweet pup is, without a doubt, a special and loving girl who deserves a caring home. She is eager to find a new family member to cuddle up with forever and share her love. 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: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Collie (long coat). Luke is a really friendly 3 year old pup looking for a new family to bond with, as his last family was not able to care for him anymore. For that reason, it is really important to us that his next home is his true forever home! We are specifically look for a home with another young, playful dog who can play with Luke. Luke is housebroken, knows basic obedience commands, and is crate trained -- but he can be a stubborn fella! He’ll need an owner who has patience and understands that he doesn’t enjoy being forced to do something he doesn’t want to do, such as getting into SUVs (he's fine with getting into cars) or being pulled by the collar. He would do best in a home with children who are teenagers or older. We are also specifically looking for a home with another young, playful dog in the house that Luke can play with, given his high energy. This handsome guy is very outgoing! He’s very friendly with all people, and is especially playful with other dogs. He seems to do fine with cats. Luke LOVES his food, and will do just about anything to get another snack. For that reason, he is on a diet (he's a bit overweight!). He can be protective of his meals, so he should be fed separately if other dogs are in the house. Luke's a super upbeat guy who will make a great addition to a lucky new family! 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.
