These collies or shelties have just arrived in SWCR. Each will be vetted and fostered until SWCR knows enough about them to write a bio. That process can take a few weeks. Then they will move to the Collies Needing Homes page. So click on this link to see if the collie you last saw on this page is now ready for adoption.

Preliminary Bio: Laddie’s estimated birth is in spring 2016. He currently weighs 45 pounds, but is already gaining weight on 3 times daily feeding.

He is a smart collie who knows how to sit, is very responsive to recall, and is good on a leash. He is not housebroken but is crate trained and will overnight quietly in his crate. Laddie is extremely affectionate and trusting, and very open to people he doesn't know. He bonds easily and is eager to please his human.

He, as a young dog, and needs lots of handling, settling, and exposure to new things as he is a little behind in social skills, and lacks confidence around unfamiliar things. He is good with other dogs but has a typical bouncy exuberant puppy behavior, but he does respect fellow dogs' orrections well.

Laddie has been vetted, appears to be healthy and is heartworm and parasite free. He will be neutered and microchipped next week.

His possible adopter has been identified so we are not entertaining new applications for him at this moment. If that changes, you will find him on the Collies Needing Homes page of this website.
