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.

      Posted Breed: Collie (long coat). Hit F5 to refresh screen for current info. Gentle giant Sport is 9 yr old and 85-90 lb. Sport is good with dogs, cats, and kids. He came to us with old ACL tears which were too old to be repaired. Orthoscopic surgery to remove bone spurs somewhat improved his mobility. He needs help getting to his feet and needs supervision when outside as he sometimes falls and needs help getting up. Sport’s forever home is a home where someone can be there with him most of the day. Sport is a wonderful rough collie and is always a happy and loving boy.

      Posted Breed: Collie (short coat). Hit F5 to refresh screen for current info. Hi! I’m Lorenzo, but you can call me Renzo. If you’re looking for a big, beautiful, blue merle smoothie, then I’m your boy! I’m eight years old. I lost my home when my mom died and my dad had to go into assisted living. What kind of home am I looking for? Well, I would love it if I could be an only dog, since I don’t like sharing my food or my people with other dogs. I also would love to have some older (over eight years old) kids to play with, since I’m so big and like to play. I’m a big lover boy, and love petting, body rubs and kisses! I’m in great physical shape, I’ve been neutered (ouch!) and I’m up to date on all my shots. My foster home is great, but I really want my own home and my own special family.

      Breed: Collie-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Collie / Mixed (medium coat). Hit F5 to refresh screen for current info. Sally is a sweet, healthy 2 yr old herding mix girl. She is crate trained and doesn’t object to going in when we leave during the day. She is very playful and enjoys wrestling and playing chase in the yard with the other dogs. She is fast and sometimes leaps right over the top of the other dogs. She is pretty good on a leash when you walk her by herself. When she is with another dog they all pull to see who can stay ahead. We have mowed the lawn and run the vacuum and neither one seem to bother her. She would be great in an active household. She definitely needs to be occupied. She would also do well with someone that wanted to really train her. She likes kids as well as adults and would probably do great with kids a little older 8 and up. Young might accidentally be knocked down a few times before everyone understands how to coexist. Her coloring is so beautiful, a rich golden brown.

      Eli

      Breed: Collie
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Baby
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Collie (short coat). Hit F5 to refresh screen for current info. Energetic, healthy 10-month-old purebred smooth collie Eli is looking for his forever family. Eli is housebroken, neutered, and has had some basic obedience training including sit, down, come, and stay. He is a bit on the small side for a male collie at around 45 pounds but he will likely grow a bit more. Eli is young, strong, and energetic and will require his family to play with him and exercise him every day. He is a curious collie and still needs supervision in the house. Eli loves to play with toys and will fetch and return a toy. He needs some safe chew toys to keep him occupied while in the house, and a yard big enough for him to run in and play frisbee (his favorite game) with his family. Eli does not always do well with smaller dogs, so a home with another big dog or no other dogs would work well for him. He enjoys wrestling with and playing chase with big doggie playmates.

      Breed: Chow Chow-Collie Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      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.
