Winter is an 8 month old pointer mix, about 35 lbs, who came to rescue on his “kill” date, having been at a shelter in a cage for several months. We can’t figure out why this sweet and beautiful little boy was not adopted before this. He is very affectionate, he loves people and is very appreciative of attention and affection. He also loves other dogs, but does not do as well with cats. Winter would do best in a home with a big yard to run in and at least one other dog for company as he does not like to be alone. He is smart and eager to please. He is house trained and crate trained. He is very high energy, but he is not an escape artist and makes no attempt to leave the yard, even though he probably could jump the fence if he wanted to. He is neutered, heart worm negative, and has had all his shots.

About Texas Collie & Sheltie Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Texas Collie Rescue, Inc.

Our Mission

Texas Collie Rescue is made up of individuals that love the breeds with a mission to help Collies and Shetland Sheepdogs (Shelties) to be placed in the best possible permanent homes. These Collies and Shelties may be found throughout the State of Texas and surrounding states as strays or in shelters, dog pounds, humane organizations, or even homes that for some reason are no longer able to provide the best circumstances for their loved pet. When received, Collies and Shelties will be evaluated and provided with any necessary veterinary care to give them the best possible quality of life. They will be spayed or neutered, checked and treated for heartworms and other internal or external parasites, vaccinated, and micro-chipped.
The Collies and Shelties will be maintained in loving foster homes to return them to health, evaluate their temperament, improve behavioral issues, and wait for that right family to provide their forever home. Potential adopters will be evaluated to determine if they have commitment to provide a loving home with proper care and concern for their new family member, as well as to determine if the family and individual Collie or Sheltie will be a good match for each other.
Texas Collie Rescue will also provide educational resources to help people learn about the proper care and special needs of Collies and Shelties.
Texas Collie Rescue relies on financial contributors, fund-raising efforts and for volunteers to provide foster homes, transportation assistance, and activities involved in support of its goals.
