A COMPLETED APPLICATION IS REQUIRED BEFORE ANY CONVERSATION ABOUT ADOPTING FROM OUR ORGANIZATION.  PLEASE GO TO OUR WEBSITE AT www.colliesheltierescue.org AND READ ABOUT THE BASIC REQUIREMENTS (GOOD PHONE INTERVIEW, SECURELY FENCED YARD, FABULOUS REFERENCE FROM YOUR VETERINARIAN, HOME VISIT).  I KNOW THAT IS A LOT BUT WE SCREEN CAREFULLY FOR THE SAKE OF THE DOGS.  THEY DESERVE IT!

From the family of Burton.....

"Burton is a very loyal, loving dog who is happy to spend time with his person doing just about anything, including snuggling, walking, riding in the car, tummy rubs or playing tug.  His tug rope is his favorite toy and he will bring it to you to engage in play.  He loves to lie on the carpet and rub his back!

We are careful not to leave unattended people food (or dog treats) within reach of Burton.... We also remember to close the pantry door now."  LOL

Burton is an 11-year-old combo dog.  We think Sheltie and Aussie mix. Healthy, neutered male, used to regular grooming and lots of companionship from his family.  His folks are unable to keep him for the rest of his life.  And Burton wants what every pooch wants.  Stability and compassion, good food and a comfortable place to nap.

Adopting a senior dog is a gracious and loving thing to do.  We believe that those folks go straight to the head of the line at the Rainbow Bridge.

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.
