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 ~ September 1, 2007

Meet "Frankie" from Almost Home Dog Rescue of Ohio, Inc.

If you're looking for a calm and steady pal who wants to be with you whether you're at home or out and about, Frankie could be the guy for you. At home, Frankie is laid back and easy. He wants to be where you are, but he isn't pushy or attention-seeking - just being with you is enough to make him happy. He also enjoys lounging out in the yard, if it's not too hot. Frankie is good in the car and on walks. He would like nothing more than to accompany you wherever you go and his behavior, manners, and awesome good looks would make you proud, no matter what the situation. Frankie is great with adults and other dogs (kids and cats - unknown). He stays still for grooming and doesn't appear to have any resource guarding or other issues of that kind; he is nervous during thunderstorms. Apparently Frankie spent his entire life up to this point in a kennel, so he is just now discovering the joys of things like playing with toys, wrestling with other dogs, sleeping inside with his family, and a little chicken on his breakfast. He is learning to sit and to not bolt through an open door. Frankie is mostly housetrained, although possibly not completely. (he routinely goes outside often -- at least every six hours) He hasn't had an accident in the house in the couple of weeks that he has been living with his foster family. Frankie
has recently been given a complete physical, is neutered and heartworm negative, and his vaccinations are up-to-date. He is on heartworm preventative, Frontline for protection from fleas, and he is microchipped. Adoption contribution $175.00 Contact Daryl at for more information about Frankie or any one of our wonderful dogs.

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.
