This 1-year-old, 75# white-factored rough coated Collie just landed in Colorado, and we wanted to shout the news. Boomer is absolutely glorious, covered all over with the softest white puppy fuzz that is turning into gorgeous white silk.

Help for Lost Dogs
We’ve been hearing a lot about lost dogs recently. The Missing Pet Partnership is an excellent source of information and tips to help find a pet. Their focus is on understanding the likely reactions of a lost pet to circumstances and events around him, including rescue efforts. There are comprehensive and well-organized sections on cat, dog, and other specific pet “lost behaviors” as well as discussions of counterproductive owner and rescuer behaviors. Here is the section on Recovery Tips: Lost Dog Behavior. Links to these and other useful articles are also provided in the RMCSR Resources page.
Rocky Mountain Collie and Sheltie Rescue, Inc. (RMCSR)
Rocky Mountain Collie and Sheltie Rescue, Inc. (RMCSR), formerly Pueblo Collie/Sheltie Rescue, is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization established in 1979 to rescue, rehabilitate, and place lost, abused and abandoned Collies, Collie-mixes, Shelties, and Sheltie-mixes in loving, responsible homes. We are a certified rescue organization through the Colorado Board of Agriculture’s State Veterinarian’s office. Dogs stay in carefully selected foster homes and receive complete veterinary care until they are matched to carefully screened and approved adopters. We do not adopt out dogs at public events.
Can You Foster a Collie or Sheltie?
We have dogs coming in just about weekly, and we always need foster homes. If you have a fenced yard, are dog savvy and are a loving, responsible person — let us hear from you. Previous adopters make wonderful foster homes too! For additional information, Please visit our Fostering page.
