Meet Kansas, the glorious sable and white rough Collie. He is a 7-year-old neutered male that is active and funny and full of joy. At 66#, down from 70#, Kansas is fit and young for his age. He arrived already neutered and up to date on vaccines so the available dollars were spent on a heartworm test, blood chemistries and CBC and a complete dental cleaning and polishing with one minor extraction.
Stormy is a sweet, elderly, mahogany sable spayed female. She loves everyone and everything and is a pleasure to have as a companion. Like many gracefully aging ladies she is slowing down a bit and is a little hard of hearing. Stormy would do best in a home where her person would be home with her most of the day.
Please begin the process for adoption by reading our Policies & Guidelines and, if we sound like the right group for you, proceed to the online Adoption Application. From there, our receipt of your completed application will be confirmed by email. You will receive a follow-up phone call if we feel you are a good potential applicant for the dog. Lots of good conversation with the foster family, a reference from your veterinarian, and a home visit round out the screening process. We take dog adoption very seriously. Please put a lot of thought into why you want to adopt a dog, and help us make a good match for your family. We appreciate your taking the time to visit with us. We will look forward to hearing from you as well.
THE COLLIE is 22 to 26 inches at the shoulder and weighs 50 to 75 pounds. Although a large, active dog, the Collie is both elegant and graceful, appearing to float over the ground as it runs. Loyal and affectionate, the breed is naturally responsive to humans. Marked characteristics include the beautiful coat of the rough variety and the breed’s lean wedge-shaped head. The coat can be rough or smooth and the four accepted colors are sable and white, tri-color, blue merle and white. The best-known Collie is, of course, the famous Lassie.
The Collie is a devoted family dog, especially with children. Although they require daily walks, they can also be couch potatoes. Despite the Rough Collie’s immense coat, they only need to be brushed about once a week, although the need for brushing may increase in shedding season. Collies are also a very clean breed and are noted for not having a doggie odor.
