JUST ARRIVED!!!

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.

 

 

BONNIE

Sex: Female
Color: Sable and White
Variety: Rough
Age: 5
Rescued: Phoenix AZ
Fostered: Phoenix AZ
Bio: Bonnie is a delightful, affectionate, energetic rough coat collie that is estimated to be 5 years old. She is playful and loving; a very social young lady. She came to us underweight and fearful but through a fair amount of love and attention she is currently thriving and is making friends with both the people and pets in her foster home.  She is house-broken, crate and dog door trained, and knows a number of commands including “sit”, “down” and “stay”. Bonnie has learned to wait for a command before going outside, does not beg or “counter surf”, climb on furniture, chew, or dig in the yard. She is also good with cats, inquisitive but not in the least threatening.

Bonnie is friendly with our collie but sometimes reacts strongly to loud vehicles or unfamiliar dogs she meets while on walks. Her reaction appears to be fear related. She is receiving daily training during her walks to minimize this issue and she is making good progress. In addition, Bonnie is a bit of a barker when outside but she is learning to curb that impulsive.

With her eager-to-please personality and a little training focus she is making rapid progress toward being a very well-behaved girl.  Given her energy level we think she would be best with grade school or older children who could play or run with her, or who can handle her on a leash.  She would be great in an active household that could give her a fair amount of exercise.

Bonnie is spayed, is current on shots, and microchipped. For more information about Bonnie, please contact Bill Ferrell at bkferrell@cox.net or email or call Bonnie’s foster mom, Linn Rojewski, at lrojewski@cox.net or 602-451-1697.

BELLA

Sex: Female
Color: Sable and White
Variety: Rough
Age: 8
Rescued: Phoenix AZ
Fostered: Phoenix AZ
Bio: Bella is an 8 year female, rough coated collie, on the smaller side. She lost her right hind leg at the age of 5 months old from an injury when she fell out the back of a pickup truck, she gets around well but has arthritis in her back and left leg and will often scoot around when she tired or hurting, She is on medication for the arthritis.

Bella gets along great with other dogs and enjoys their companionship, we are unsure about cats but given her gentle nature we think she would do fine. She is house trained and will use a dog door, rides well in a car but may need help getting in and out depending on the height, she is used to getting on the couch and having free roam of the house. Bella will bark at strangers but is friendly otherwise, she has not been leash trained but should do well with some work. She is current on her vaccinations, is spayed and micro-chipped. For more information about Bella, please contact Cindy Reel at reelracer@aol.com.
