Brandy's Story...
**BRANDY IS FOSTERED IN ONTARIO**

Please fill in the adoption application before sending an inquiry about Brandy. Adoption applications can be found at the Collie Rescue Network website. Please fully read the Adoption Process, also found at that website.

An adoption fee of $350 applies for all adopted dogs.

Brandy is a super sweet 7-year-old girl who would love to find a family who wants to snuggle while watching TV, snuggle when they get home from work, snuggle before bed and maybe snuggle in bed too!! Brandy really likes to snuggle!

She is pretty sure she is a tiny lap dog and being very close to you makes Brandy very happy - so if you don't want a dog on the couch or on your bed, Brandy is NOT the girl for you. We'd hate to see one of the things that makes her happiest taken away from her.

Brandy likes everyone she meets and will walk up to strangers and lean in for a hug. We have no experience with small children with Brandy but older kids 8+ would be fine with her. She LOVES to be brushed and was fine at the "do it yourself" doggie wash her foster mom took her to. At home, while brushing, she sometimes takes it as an invitation to get into your lap so plan snuggle time between brushings!

Brandy is great with other dogs and has no issues with space. She is very patience with bouncy younger dogs and appropriately will tell them, 'enough' when her tolerance finally runs out. However, she does not like to share toys - which is odd because she doesn't really know now to play with them yet either. Brandy spent most of her life in a barn on a farm setting and isn't quite sure yet what to do with toys, but at the same time, she's pretty sure they're great so would like to keep them for herself and gets snarky with the resident dog if he tries to take hers away while she's "using" them.

Because Brandy lived mainly in the barn, her basics (like sit, down, etc.) are not perfect but she's very willing to learn and loves cookies, so will be easy to work with that way. She's a very easy-going girl who wants very much to please you and be with you so training will be a fun activity for both Brandy and her new family!

Brandy has some minor creaks and stiffness (normal for large breed dogs) so please be aware that going forward she will likely need glucosamine or even medciation from the vet for arthritis (again, normal for most large breed dogs). She will need a home with few steps in and out for walks (which she LOVES and does a happy dance whenever her leash comes out!) and where the main living area is on one floor.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Brandy, a Toronto Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie for sale in Toronto, or seeking a Collie dog from a breeder in Toronto.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Toronto already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Toronto breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Collie breeders who help with Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Toronto paves the way for another one to be saved.
