Saturday's Collie

COL is proud to introduce a new weekly feature available to Collie Rescue Organizations across the country, free of charge, called Saturday's Collie. Every week 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, and we will let you know when your rescue collie will appear. We recognize that there are hundreds of deserving collies rescued yearly by dedicated groups who restore collies to health, revive their collie character, and match them with new homes. We'd love to include as many rescues as possible and will continue to feature new collies every Saturday of the month, as long as groups keep sending them.

Saturday's Collie ~ August 25, 2007

Meet "Tony" from
Houston Collie Rescue

My name is Tony, and I'm 7 years-old rough boy. My long coat got shaved, but it's growing back now. My owner had to go into something called a nursing home, so I ended up with some nice people at HCR. Right now I'm “between homes” and am boarding. It's not so bad, but I'm wishing for a place of my own, or at least a foster home until I find a “permanent situation.” I have so much going for me, I'm sure my wish will come true soon! I'm neutered, heartworm negative, and up-to-date on vaccinations. Oh yeah, my teeth have been cleaned – trying to show them off in the picture here.  I'm very intelligent and know Sit, Down, Stay, Heel, and Hold (as in no jumping into or out of the car until I'm told and no bolting through doors and gates). In spite of my near perfection, I admit to a few very tiny flaws. I have a lot to say when I'm outdoors but settle down when I come inside.   They tell me I'm  also just a wee bit stubborn but take stuff seriously if I know a person really means business. My last little fault is that I weigh
82 lbs. – too many dog treats – I guess? Weight Watchers, anyone?!

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.
