Colby's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Colby's Story...
Welcome to the "cheese pups" - born on 5/24/15 - who came to Forget Me Not as a Stop the Cycle litter. Mama will be spayed on a Forget Me Not voucher and returned to her owner, and all the pups will be spayed/neutered before leaving. They will be ready to go home 8/7/15..

These pups weighed between 12 1/2 and 14 1/2 pounds at 8 weeks old. We expect they will be around 60 to 80 pounds full-grown. They are all well socialized, happy pups, who stayed with their mama for their first 8 weeks, and are staying together as a litter until they head for their new homes after 8/7.

Mama Blue is 1/2 Border Collie, 1/4 Doberman, and 1/4 Rottweiler - last photo is of her.

Papa is suspected to be a wandering Maremma (similar to a Great Pyrenees) that passes through the mama's property from time to time.

None of the pups look like either Blue or a Maremma right now (except for Cheddar, Gouda, and Manchego with the long, thick, curly Maremma-like coats) - had they come in without any history, we would have just described them as "shepherd mix" pups! They are all beautiful, unique LeMutte pups, and should integrate easily into pretty much any type of family - kids, cats, other dogs, they should adapt to all. They were even raised around goats!

Colby is a frisky tricolor girl with adorable white sock and the cutest eyebrows..

Puppies require a lot of human interaction, and all puppies will benefit from obedience training and full immersion in their human household. These pups' ideal home will have someone who can exercise them with a couple of energetic walks each day, plus commitment to training them how to be the best dogs they can be. These pups hope to have very few hours per day when they will be without the companionship of a human or other pet. They will reward their forever people with boundless love and loyalty! We start all puppies on their vaccinations as soon as they arrive at the shelter (this litter had their first vaccination on 7/18, their second will be given on 8/8, with a final booster about 3-4 weeks later [likely post-adoption]; they will then need rabies vaccination between 4-6 months of age).

We've included a short video of the pups from 7/22/15

Colby comes with a 30-day money-back trial adoption period. We will be accepting applications for these pups until 7/29/15, and will then work with approved adopters to assign pups based on individual "pupsonalities" that will be developing during their time in the shelter's care.

Spay/neuter, worming, microchip and all age-appropriate shots are always completed before placement, and are included in the adoption fee (suggested minimum $108; more gratefully accepted!)

Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your payment to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Colby, a Republic Border Collie/Maremma Sheepdog puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie/Maremma Sheepdog for sale in Republic, or seeking a Border Collie/Maremma Sheepdog puppy from a breeder in Republic.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Republic 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 Republic 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 Border Collie/Maremma Sheepdog breeders who help with Border Collie/Maremma Sheepdog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Republic paves the way for another one to be saved.
