    Sheba is a short haired collie mix. She is very sweet and mellow. Also a rescue dog, her exact age is unknown but I have had her since 2009. She is heavier now because I do not have a fenced yard for her to exercise outside. She has been an inside dog for 5 years now. I am 74 years old and cannot care for her properly now. She is a roommate to Clyde in my last posting. They get along great together. She also has had good food with no bargain brands. Sheba needs a fenced yard as well.

Collie Mix   

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations, Arthritis 

    Clyde was a rescue dog so his actual age is unknown. He is heavier now since he is older (I found him in 2009). He has some arthritis in his hind quarters, but still jumps up on the sofa. He needs a fenced yard so he can run around. I have kept him inside for the past 5 years due to this intolerant weather. I am 74 years old and can no longer care for him properly. He has had very good food while I have had him not bargain brands.

(Read More)go for daily runs or at least being able to run may times a day______________ Working with animals you become aware of surrounding situations and ones that just don't feel right. The sweet boy that I am hoping to get into your foster is so incredibly sweet and this is a very hard choice for me to make but I know its the best one for everyone involved including him. This is the sad story of Rocky and how I came to save him. Rocky was owned by a family who lived within my apartment complex until they decided they no longer wanted him and turned him out. He had been out loose for two days before I learned about the situation. As I was sitting out on my patio I noticed two young boys walking with him. He had no tags, no leash and no collar. The way that these boys got him to listen was by pulling on his scruff and making him follow them. He could barely lift his head and walked very slowly as if he were a senior dog. When the boys let his scruff go he slowly walked right up to me even with them calling what I guess they wanted his name to be. He didn't stop, he didn't turn his head or even acknowledge that they were calling him. That is when I knew the situation really wasn't right. When he got to me I petted him and questioned the boys about what was going on. They couldn't keep their stories straight and they never matched up. When I asked them to call his name he didn't even look in their direction. That's when I learned about Rocky and what he had been going through. The boys also told me that there was three of them taking care of him and the ages were 13,13 and 10. The dog wasn't allowed in any of their homes so they built him a shelter our of whatever they could find behind the fence of the property and kept him there. I told the boys that when an adult was able to come and let me know that this was their dog they could have him back but until then I was going to keep him. Rocky came inside and plopped on the floor and slept! The first 12 hours I could barely get him to eat and or drink anything and his breathing was so shallow there were a few times that I thought he had passed. He wouldn't move his head or even open his eyes to anyone or anything including to petting him. He had to be carried outside and almost held up just to go potty. 24 hours in he finally started to slowly shows signs of being a puppy, eating, drinking, walking on his own and going outside. He was happy to have human touch and you could tell was coming around. After 48 hours he was acting just like a puppy should and full of life! I took him to the vet clinic that I work at and got him up to date on everything. I already knew he had tapeworms just because I had saw them. I had him tested for heartworms and intestinal parasites, which both came back negative. I also had him vaccinated the same day for DHLPP, Bordetella, Rabies, dewormed and a dose of heartworm prevention. I just got him neutered on 4/14/2015 and he has been recovering great. My hope was that once I got him all fixed up I would have a greater chance of finding him a home but so far I haven't even had anyone inquire about him. I would love to keep him but I don't have the time or space that is fair to him. I work eleven hours a day, which means he is in a crate for that long 4-5 days a week, and I live in an apartment so he doesn't get the ability to release all that stored up energy except for maybe once or twice a week. I hate to have to take him to a shelter, but my time is becoming limited. Thank you for taking the time to read about Rocky's story. I hope to hear from you soon. (Less)

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