THOR – COLLIE MIX

Sex: Male
Color: White with Sable markings
Variety: Rough
Age: 7
Rescued: El Paso TX
Fostered: Phoenix AZ
Bio My name is Thor. I am a handsome 7 year old guy and I love people and I get along well with other dogs. I have also made friends with a hen at my last foster home. I am a strong and athletic boy, so A fence that is 5 feet high or taller helps keep me safe in a yard. I know how to use a doggie door, but I also am really good to ask to go outside in places where there is no door. I have never - not once - had an accident in a house.
I enjoy baths, love to be petted, and belly rubs are my favorite. It is so nice when I get to spend time with my humans and I especially like going for walks or hikes, riding in a car, and am even good for the vet.
Having a crate is nice, too. I like having my own space and when I get tired or too excited, a crate is my own quiet space. It's also good for my humans to let me stay in a crate or a quiet place inside whenever they have to leave me. I don't like being left alone, so having another dog companion would be perfect for me. I am learning about cats, but I find them very interesting and have chased a couple of them when they wanted to run around me.
If you are interested in a big, handsome guy like me, I would love to come and live with you. Just get in touch with Kathy Wallis at katwallis1@msn.com or anyone from Southwest Collie Rescue to get more information or to make arrangements to meet me.

TRUDY – COLLIE/SHEPHERD MIX

Sex: Female
Color: Black and brown
Variety: N/A
Age: 2
Rescued: Hobbs NM
Fostered: Alamogordo NM
Coordinator: Kathy Wallis at katwallis1@msn.com
Preliminary Bio: Trudy arrived at the Hobbs shelter as a stray. She was thin, but friendly and social. She was adopted by a Hobbs family and per shelter policy, was spayed prior to going home. Trudy is sensitive to medications and anesthesia (unknown until the spay surgery), then experienced several seizures while with the adopter's. They returned her to the shelter, and shelter management contacted SWCR.

Her current foster family named her Trudy, meaning 'Universal Strength'. They report that she is sweet, but suffers from separation anxiety. She is learning house dog manners quickly. She gets along great with other dogs. Welcome Trudy!

But Trudy has almost no hip sockets and is in constant pain. She will need the services of an orthopeadic vet, and probably some hip replacements before she will feel really good.

Rescued: Fulshear TX
Fostered: Phoenix AZ
