    Sweet, beautiful, calm and lovely. Duke has it all but that wasn't enough for his people. Duke was picked up by animal control in the in Georgia when his people called to complain he kept leaving the property and they didn't want him anymore. He was left outside to fend for himself, no food, no fence and no love. When we called the shelter to save another dog, they had just brought Duke in. No surprise that Duke has heart worms which he is being treated for. He is SUCH a great dog! Duke is fully house broken, calm, friendly and gets along with everyone. He seems to be about 5 years old and weighs 55 lbs, but he should probably gain a ... (Read More)little weight. He has long gorgeous fur and is magnificent looking.

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-20-00086Sarge (male)

Collie Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Our Sarge is a lovebug. He joined us a few months ago from a well-reputed local shelter where he had been put up for adoption and passed over. Sarge was found roaming the area as a stray, and at the age of five, found himself a guest in the local pound, where he made many friends. This handsome charmer peaked the interest of our shelter contact, Emily, who thought he'd be a good candidate for our Rescue. Sarge seems to be a Collie mix, graced with a lush, full coat, a full mane and pretty Collie tri-colors. But his stocky, muscular build suggest Australian Cattle Dog DNA. Sarge is a double dose of herding dog, so he definitely needs an ... (Read More)active lifestyle and a job. Herders are hardwired to work, and if his adopters do not give Sarge a job, he will practice his herding skills within the household. A bored, frustrated herding dog is a recipe for Mayhem. Exercise and obedience training are the keys to managing the Herding Breeds. Sarge is a high-energy dog, who would make a great running, walking or hiking partner. He's built for speed, but will adjust his pace to suit his Handler. He needs at least three brisk daily leash walks, in addition to focused playtime. Adopters can increase the intensity of a walk by outfitting Sarge with a dog backpack, loaded with water and a collapsable bowl. At each rest and water stop, Sarge will feel like he's got a job and will be quite proud of himself. Obedience training is essential to meeting the needs of a Herding dog. Sarge already knows all of his basic obedience commands, and is on the way to earning his Canine Good Citizenship Certification. Adopters should be able to take him the rest of the way with ease. Structure and obedience work go a long way in providing Sarge the mental and physical challenges that he needs. Sarge is best suited to an active adult home, with a dog savvy single or couple, who have the time and energy to give him his daily exercise. Tranquility and calm suit Sarge best. In a chaotic, hectic environment he becomes anxious and demonstrates herding behavior in order to maintain social order. In a calm environment, Sarge relaxes and enjoys quiet time with his people. Kids and cats may provide too much stimulation, but Sarge could easily join a multi-dog home. Sarge has good house manners and is house trained and crate trained, although adopters should expect to troubleshoot a few accidents during his transition to a new routine. He is in excellent health, and at an ideal lean body weight of 30 pounds. He has been neutered, and vaccinated for Rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza and coronavirus), He has been boostered as needed. He has had the 4dx test: negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. If you are interested in Sarge, please write to or call Denise at 860-908-9738 for more info. Eskies Online is a 501(c)(3) Multibreed rescue group that serves unwanted American Eskimos and other dogs in need. Our group of volunteer foster homes spans the North East, and our adoption territory extends from Maine to eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, and parts of northern Maryland. Once an adopter is approved, we arrange transportation. We do not adopt dogs beyond our territory. Please visit our website: for more information about our group and our adoption procedures. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Collie in Connecticut
    Collie Dogs can make good pets in Connecticut if they match your IifestyIe. Collies, or Rough Collies, are loyal, devoted, and protective dogs. Most Collies are excellent companions for children. Collies are natural herders and may nip at people's heels when they are puppies. Collies respond well to gentle obedience training. Collies are best suited to loving families with a decent sized yard but can adapt to apartment life. Collies are easy to housebreak.
