JR is an adolescent neutered male rough Collie, a sable with some merling.  He has been an outdoor only dog in Nebraska but is now in Colorado to learn to become an indoor dog with full rights and privileges.  He is 15 months old and has spent all his life with other Collies and lots of children.  He has arrived at our Director's home and then we are discovering all kinds of fabulous things about JR.  Stay tuned!  But one thing JR already knows about it love.  He is a love sponge!

JR (pka Junior)  JR has a ton of things to learn.  He dumped his water and bowl of kibble and stuffed in all under his blanket when he arrived but a 1/2 teaspoon of canned food with some warm water and he chows down.  Someone will need to be kind and nurturing and he will need another canine buddy to help him learn the ropes when it comes to being an amenable companion.  Please don't apply unless you have read the entire bio and understand what it means.


Completed application first.  Without it, I can't even begin a conversation about possibilities.  Thanks for understanding.

Please begin the process for adoption by reading our Adoption Policies and, if we sound like the right group for you, fill out our online Adoption Application. From there, our receipt of your completed application will be confirmed by email. You then 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.
