Jake is fantastic and a love and he's about 5 years old. He's had a full dental cleaning with 5 extractions, has a microchip, is up to date with everything, is deemed perfectly healthy and is so ready to go home and be loved! And we really do think you will love him very much. A gentler soul you will not find. Jake wants to be someone's soul-dog and put his hard life behind him.
We don't know his history, but he must have had a tough one. He warms up readily with women, but it takes a lot longer for him to bond with the guys. He's a sweet, sweet dog who would never hurt a fly. We are comfortable adopting him to a home with one or two nice children. If you have a little patience, then he will be true-blue and stuck on YOU. He absolutely LOVES other dogs and plays like a puppy around them, and follows their lead, so, he needs to go to a home with other dogs and be an indoor pet with fenced outdoor privileges. Jakey also likes cats! Jake is crate trained and super smart - just say, "Jakey, Crate!" and he knows what to do.
Jake is available through Collie Concern Rescue, in East Tennessee.

COL is proud to offer a feature available to Collie Rescue Organizations across the country, free of charge, called Saturday's Collie. We will feature a collie from a 501c3 rescue with a photo or two and a bio describing the collie's story and personality. Contact us to reserve a space for your organization. We recognize that there are many deserving collies rescued yearly by dedicated groups who restore collies to health, revive their collie character, and match them with new homes.
Many avenues are available to assist collie rescue organizations near you or nationally through the Collie Rescue Foundation. Of course, monetary donations are always needed and appreciated to help pay for spay/neuter, worming, heartworm treatment and preventative, vaccinations, surgeries, and food. There are, however, many ways to assist rescue such as donating supplies, offering to foster, helping to transport, as well as offering services and expertise.
