OUR FIRST STEP TOWARD ANY PLACEMENT IS A COMPLETED APPLICATION WHICH YOU WILL FIND ON OUR WEBSITE AT www.colliesheltierescue.org.  AN INQUIRY FROM PETFINDER IS NOT THE SAME THING.  PLEASE READ ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION SO YOU WILL UNDERSTAND THE REQUIREMENTS FOR ADOPTION.  SECURELY FENCED YARD, A GREAT REFERENCE FROM YOUR VETERINARIAN AND A MEANINGFUL CONVERSATION WITH OUR DIRECTOR.

Quincy is a medium-sized (46#) buff colored Collie/Border Collie mix (we think) in search of an active and loving home.  He is shy (as some Border Collies can be) and lovable (as all Collies are.)  His fur is soft and warm and will start to gleam soon with a change in diet and a lot of loving hands on him.  He was living with some adults with special needs and he is not getting the running and playing that a 1-year-old pup needs to be a happy boy.

Quincy has been neutered and microchipped.  His blood chemistries and CBC are normal and he is heartworm negative.  He is housebroken and has learned to open doors to let himself out to go potty if no one is available.  This is a highly intelligent dog and he could be trained to do just about anything.  But he would not do well left alone in a backyard.  He would be bored and become destructive.  And we won't let that happen.  Let's find him a doggie play pal and some humans who are at least as smart as he is.

**** Quincy has some baggage from being passed around as a young dog.  He has separation anxiety, so will be looking for humans who will make him the priority in their lives and spend most of their time with him so that he feels secure.  A canine companion who loves to play will be essential to his well-being so that is a requirement.  Lack of car experience can be overcome by short car rides with a trusted doggie friend.  You can even start with just hopping into the car, getting out and having a treat.  We have lots of constructive ideas for these kinds of training issues with dogs that were not given the kind of early socialization that well-loved dogs need to be well-adjusted.

Quincy will help by screening applications himself.  He is just that smart!
