DEACON

Sex: Male
Color:
Sable and White
Variety: Smooth
Age: 1
Rescued: Albuquerque NM
Fostered: Albuquerque NM
Bio: Deacon seemed to have had a slow start in life by being left behind for basic dog things: easy commands, collar and leash training, food manners, and shy if not fearful back-aways. But, this boy has made such huge strides in those features as well as housebreaking and car rides, that he is proven to be a very quick study and a super huggy and loyal fellow. At one year, or so, this handsome guy has his whole life ahead. He is completely adaptable to athletic pursuits and total involvement in adventure. He gets along very well with other dogs and he has a very gentle but playful spirit.

His ideal adopter would have another dog and lots of time to work Deacon into the confident collie he would like to become. For more information about Deacon, please contact Arlene at arlenestarkey@outlook.com

   

TIA

Sex: Femalebkferrell@cox.net
Color: Tri
Variety: Smooth
Age: 3
Rescued: Phoenix AZ
Fostered: Phoenix AZ
Bio:Tia is a 3-year old loving, sweet and sassy collie/german shepherd mix. She's a healthy weight of 70 pounds. She's housebroken and knows commands, like "sit" and "down". She doesn't counter-surf, hasn't chewed/destroyed anything inappropriate (just her toys), and she doesn't dig. She likes bones and gently licking soft toys to make them squeak. She's more interested in human affection than treats or other dogs. She is very gentle with children. Tia loves dog beds and will drag lighter ones to be closer to you!

She's easily excited medium-energy dogs and would do well with walks to tire out her energy. There are issues with separation anxiety and barking/whining/crying too much She happily barks at everything in the backyard while playing by herself so she needs training and time. She's good on a leash and has good car skills -- but may bolt unexpectedly so she needs a well-fitting collar or harness. Her eyes are unusual! She has one brown and one blue eye. It's a very striking look, and she sees fine from both eyes.

Tia's background is mostly mystery. She was picked up as a stray in New Mexico, transported to a southern Arizona location, next went to the Animal Welfare League, and then ended up with us, the Southwest Collie Rescue. She is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on shots. The vet said she is in excellent health. For more information about Tia, please contact Bill Ferrell at bkferrell@cox.net

   

LUSCIOUS – COLLIE MIX

Sex: Female
Color: Tri
Variety: N/A
Age: 7-9
Rescued: Albuquerque NM
Fostered: Edgewood NM
Preliminary Bio: Luscious is a really great dog. She is well behaved and gets along well with a dog pack. She likes riding in the truck and jumped right in when we left the shelter. She really wants to please and could easily become a lapdog if allowed. No signs of counter surfing or food guarding. She prefers being indoors as she is a little hesitant about going out the door. Once out, she is very happy to run around and play chase with Jackson (a collie/sheltie mix). She is a really active girl.

She is spayed, chipped, up to date on rabies and innoculations and is heartworm negative. She walks great on a leash and comes when called. She knows her name, so perhaps it would best to not change her name. She is fine with cats. Her foster mom did take her to feed the horses and she did not bother them at all! For more information about Luscious, please contact Arlene at arlenestarkey@outlook.com
