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

|Rescue Me ID: 16-04-19-00265Coffee (male)|
Our Coffee was a tough nut to crack. He came to us with a gigantic chip on his shoulder, and we really had to work at earning his respect! Coffee was understandably peeved at his reversal of fortune, as his questionable owner dumped him in an overcrowded Animal Control facility when Coffee was just four years old. Coffee is the sort of dog who prefers the status quo, rather than 'go with the flow' change. The shelter experience was not kind to him, and he did not make many friends. Further, he had a rough time with the shelter kennel cough, and by the time he showed up on our radar he was on the Euthanasia List, and on his way to full-fledged pneumonia. When he arrived, he was overweight, showed signs of terrible neglect, and his coat had been butchered by an at home haircut. On top of that, he developed pneumonia and was hospitalized for several days, battling for breath. The recovery was slow, and Coffee endured more than his fair share of poking and prodding at the Vet's office. And while he wasn't always the model patient, over the course of time, Coffee begin to trust and slowly let his guard down, and he has adapted to his new life in Rescue. Now, a year later, Coffee has transformed into a happy, loving boy who has become one of our house favorites. He is a 100% well, in great health, and his eyes have started to sparkle. Now he's ready to join his new home. Coffee is a medium sized dog, weighing 44 pounds. He is a mix of American Eskimo Dog and Collie. His gorgeous gold and white coat has grown back to lush fullness, and he has visited our groomer two times with great results. Coffee has the stance and body shape of the standard American Eskimo Dog, but has some of the Collie coloring and size. His coat is thick and requires regular brushing, and perhaps professional grooming a couple times a year. Coffee would be a great choice for laid back, seasoned Adult Eskie lovers. He is best suited to a calm, quiet home without a lot of hectic comings and goings. Coffee is a big fan of peace and quiet. He bonds beautifully to his chosen people, but then prefers to steer clear of strangers. Coffee needs Adopters willing to put boundaries between him and the world at large, and insist that strangers approach him slowly. Although he is an excellent watchdog, adopters will need to be able to make a correction, or be willing to crate when strangers come into the home. Adopters' family and friends will need to approach him on his terms, and let him get comfortable before they become too touchy-feely. Adopters will need to be comfortable instructing folks how to approach Coffee, so that he feels comfortable and safe when meeting new people. Coffee is not a good choice for a busy family with children, but he could live happily with another canine housemate, if the dog is calm and well behaved. He has not yet been exposed to cats, but a dog savvy feline housemate is not out of the question. Adopters will need to be patient with Coffee, and allow him to warm up at his own pace. He is not likely to give a Disney moment at the adoption meeting. Coffee 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 has begun to master his basic obedience commands, and takes to training very well. Coffee responds positively to both treat-based and leadership techniques. He is in excellent health and has been neutered. His preoperative blood work was normal and serves as an important baseline going forward. His skin and coat are in A-1 shape, and he has been 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.

|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.
