Rescue Me ID: 15-02-24-00490Blanco (male)

Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Blanco showed up at my daughters property last summer. We was very skinny and terrified of riding in a car. We believe someone drove by and drop him off (country land). Our daughter loved him but there were already 3 dogs in her family (all rescued from the streets) and there was no way they could handle one more. My husband and I live in a small townhouse with no place for Blanco to run like it is evident he likes and desperately needs. It breaks my heart to see him leave because he is an amazing dog! Super intelligent, so loving and clearly anxious to please us and gorgeous on top! I wish we had a bigger place and mostly a place with a ... (Read More)large fenced yard for him to run freely and get his exercise. The times we've seen him run we can tell how much he needs that. He runs like a horse! He looks like he is galloping not running! He is a sharp retriver, he'll bring you back anything you throw, he is a natural. Something else we loves is getting in to the water. We have a large hot tub in our back patio and if we were not careful he would jump in any chance he got. That tipical of the Newfoundland breed, they are often used as part of a water rescue team. He is 10 months old, he eats like a horse, any dog food we've tried he loves. He is almost house broken, not a 100% he seems to be into marking his territory I guess because we have two older dogs at home (10 yr old full size Maltesse male and a 9.5 year old Maltipoo female. Our Maltipoo does play with Blanco, not as much as he would like to play with her but they do play some. Our older Maltesse has become a grouchy older dog that does not want to be bother unless is to come eat. We have two neighbor dogs that he frequents and loves to play with. Their yard is bigger and they are very nice dogs (male and female pits). They run and run in circles together! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-02-24-00320  (female)

Collie Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed 

    **COURTESY POST** Emma is a stunning beauty! This four-year old female caramel and white collie mix has tantalizing eyes. Emma weighs approximately 70 pounds and very healthy. Emma is very playful when comfortable and secure; she loves her humans and truly loves human touch! She would do best with a calm male/female companion dog or as an only dog; she would not be comfortable in a high energy environment. Emma would also accept older calm children who understand dog behavior. Emma walks very well on leash and enjoys the security of her humans, although she's sometimes skeptical of strangers. She is leash and crate trained, up-to-date on ... (Read More)vaccinations, heartworm free, spayed, and microchipped. Emma will need a secure yard with a tall fence for daily exercise; she will not do well with small children. Is your family the match for this sweet girl? If you are interested in providing a loving home to this pet please complete the L.A.P. application http://www.laprescue.org/adoption-application.html or email us at LapRescue@gmail.com Local area adoptions only.

Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We had been feeding Luke out on the streets for over a year (and he had been living there for who knows how long before then). We were never able to find a foster to be able to pull him to safety. Then he went missing. We searched for him and found out animal control had picked him up and he was on their euthanasia list since he was heartworm positive and had a severe case of demodex mange. We put out an urgent plea and thankfully, a foster stepped forward! We were able to pull him from the shelter before he was euthanized and he went to the foster home to undergo treatment. He is now a happy, sweet boy! He came out of his shell quickly and ... (Read More)now has so much fun playing with his fur brother and loves to go to the dog park.

    Coy came to KRR when he was discovered living with his collar embedded into his skin. A cruelty investigation was opened and we found that he was adopted as a puppy from the city shelter and his so-called 'owners' never bothered to get him a new collar as he grew. After surgery to remove his collar he was understandably timid around people. However, he is coming out of his shell and he is very sweet and is learning to trust us. He is about 40 lbs and he LOVES to play with his foster sibling, does very well on walks, and seems to really like kids. Despite all he's been though in his life, he is very playful and will make a wonderful family ... (Read More)dog when he knows he's finally safe and loved. He is about a year old, is neutered, heartworm negative, has all his shots & a microchip. This boy deserves only the best from this point forward - are you that family? (Less)

Animal ID: 284Annabelle (female)

Collie    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Annabelle is a 5 yo, female, spayed, tri pending registration Old Time Scotch Collie (OTSC). The OTSC is the predecessor of today's collie breeds that became obsolete with the disappearance of the American family farm. These collies were more stocky, and hardy than today's collie, bred for independent thinking and the stamina to herd, hunt, and protect the family farm. There are only a few hundred of these dogs left, see http://www.scotchcollie.org/). So how did Annabelle wind up in Texas Collie Rescue (TCR)? The OTSCs that have been discovered in the U.S. have come from old family ranches and farms. And Annabelle is the right age to ... (Read More)have been turned in the San Antonio Humane Society as a pup at about the time when the Texas drought forced many San Antonio area farmers and ranchers to sell land and livestock, and part with the dogs they used to work farms and ranches that had been in operation for hundreds of years. But Annabelle can't remember living on a farm, or being taken to a shelter, or adopted. Or her owner mistaking her for an Australian Shepherd because of her coloring and docking her tail? Or getting lost? Or being stolen? That was just too long ago. And the poor dog could not say how she wound up in the back yard of a house in San Antonio in a high crime neighborhood, where someone put down an endless supply of cheap dog food that led to her becoming overweight. A high of just shy of 90 doggy pounds! It seems that Annabelle CAN remember being made to fight with other dogs, that caused the scars on her face and tongue. She is still collie-friendly and wags her stub of a tail lovingly at every dog she meets. She even wags at cats, who don't seem to want to share the love. But because of her fighting experiences, she will fight, and not back away if she is attacked by an aggressive dog. Annabelle must be with a family with a gentle dog friend, or no other dog at all. She should not visit a dog park where aggressive dogs might attack her. And she should not live in a home with very young children who might startle her by poking a stick in her eye when mom or dad aren't looking. And yes your little darling will do it even if you don't think she/he will, because young kids just don't know any better! And Annabelle also seems to remember being left alone in a yard until there was no more food to eat, and finally breaking down a gate to try to find water and food. She wandered for days through a neighborhood that you and I would be afraid to hang out in after dark before she was caught by a Good Samaritan Rescuer, who called Texas Collie Rescue. So now Annabelle keeps a close (almost-human-in-intelligence-and-perception) eye on, and stays where she can always see her Foster Mom to be sure she is never abandoned again. And she will be a loyal and devoted friend to/protector of her new owner(s) forever. Annabelle just had her teeth cleaned and one broken tooth extracted. So she has a bright new Pepsodent smile, gentle brown eyes, and gorgeous soft coat. Other than being overweight, she is completely healthy (HW negative). Annabelle is outrageously smart, and could learn anything a dog can be trained to do, as you are inclined (obedience, herding), or just be a beautifully mannered best friend and protector. She can sit, shake, lie down and loves to go on loose leash walks (you could build endurance and work off those pounds together!). She is ready to love her new person/family forever. Annabelle is a special collie in many ways, and you will know after seeing her pictures and reading her story that she is YOUR dog.

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