"Just pick one!"

Charley

Charley is a purebred Border Collie, a smoothie. As many vacuum cleaners that I’ve gone through with my collies, a smoothie seems to be a very attractive option! Charley was purchased from a breeder, but his owners already had two dogs that created their own pack.  The nonsense of a new puppy did not appeal […]

Jamie Lee~Adopted

What a gorgeous girl.  She looks like a German Shepherd, but her coloring makes me wonder if there’s a touch of collie in her blood!  This girl is just a baby, still has her baby teeth!  She is shy at first, and loves to hide behind her human.  She needs a confidence boost and a […]

Buttons Sparkles

For being such a small little man, this dog has a million nicknames names, Buttons, Sparkles, even Elvis!  He was labeled a fear-biter, but the minute the shelter let him out of his crate, he ran to Terri and jumped in her lap… I think he’s been there ever since!  Buttons was neutered yesterday, he […]

Gomer now Frasier

Gomer Pyle~Adopted

The shelter named him Einstein.  When I first saw his photos, I thought for sure he was an Aussie/Border Collie mix.  He was abandoned at a park, I assume someone tied him to a bench or a tree, because he seems to me to be the type of dog that would follow you to the […]
