    Fee is Negotiable. We got this dog from Craigslist yesterday. The people did not tell us the truth about him and now refuse to take him back. Our humane society told us that they WILL euthanize him if we drop him off tomorrow. He does NOT like cats, we have 2 cats and he has tried to actively kill them. He jumps a lot and tries to take you down. He has knocked down our children (7 and 4) multiple times and has hurt them. He also tries to mount people, so we know he has some dominance, but he has not tried to space guard or snap/growl. We do believe he may have been abused and/or neglected in the past as he jumps when touched without ... (Read More)warning, tenses up if you pick up a stick and snarls if you touch his ribs. He is high energy, loves to run and listens semi-well (knows sit and lay down). He likes to play and will fetch. He chews on EVERYTHING--even glass nail polish bottles as we found out (he didn't break it, but was trying to). We adopted him for $200 yesterday and if it wasn't for the fact that he is actively trying to kill our cats, we'd try to work with him, but he will NOT even calm down slightly around them. Right now we have them in separate rooms, but the room our cats are in is very cold and they cannot stay out there forever, separated from the family. We were told by the previous owners that he is crate trained, but do not have a crate, so not sure how well he is trained. Please help us find a place for him. We don't want to see him euthanized, but there is NO way we can keep this dog long at all due to our other pets. Update: We have been working with him with our cats. He is showing signs that he *will* tolerate them, so we are trying everything we can to help with this. He is afraid of the dark and does not seem to recognize you well in the dark or in a darker area (i.e. coming down the hall, he'll growl and back up until he recognizes it is you). We don't know if he doesn't see well in the dark, but we know he sees fine in the day and can easily follow you and toys, ect. He is getting better with our kids, he just really needs someone you can dedicate the time to rehabilitating him. We are certain he was mistreated at the very least. We are doing our best to keep him with us and separated from our cats to try and find someone who can work with him on trust and manners. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Collie in Maryland
    Collie Dogs can make good pets in Maryland 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.

    The most famous Collie was the television star, Lassie. The Ken-L-Ration Hero Dog Award has been presented to Collies on five occasions. Collies have been known to travel as much as 2000 miles after getting lost to be reunited with their people. Pal was the name of the first Collie to play the part of Lassie.
