Dallas's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, and up to date with shots.

Dallas's Story...
Dallas, the consummate Collie, clearly displays the unmistakable temperament that is pure Collie....he is gentle, well-mannered and extremely intelligent. A stunningly handsome burgundy-shaded sable and white rough coated fellow, Dallas will surely turn heads everywhere he goes. In his prime at 5-years-old, he weighs only 42#. Until he gains another 5 pounds or so, a general anesthetic might be dangerous. We will hold off on his neuter surgery until Dr. Alsobrook at Franktown Animal Clinic gives us two thumbs up. Rather quiet and pleasantly obedient, Dallas wants very much to please his foster family. He loves to go on walks with a buckle collar or harness and does very little tugging or pulling. He responds to commands, smiles and friendly gestures equally well. He relishes hanging out with the 'family', be it human or canine. We can only speculate, but it seems that Dallas had a lonely and possibly fearful life before he came to us. He does not appear to be convinced in the goodness of mankind. He may seem relaxed and curious one day and nervous and flighty the next. As a result of his lack of trust, Dallas does not handle change well. He has been known to pace or whine. Tom and Andi, his foster mom and dad, are teaching him about love. But his fur-ever family will be the ones to really make him understand how fabulous it can be to be loved unconditionally for a lifetime. Dallas loves to be cuddled, whispered to and kissed. He would do best in a calm, stable environment with a patient and sensitive woman as one of his people. Other dogs are just fine with him as long as they aren't dominant. Cats are an unknown. Well-behaved children over 10-ish would be welcome friends. It is all about the love. Please begin the process for adoption by going to our website at www.colliesheltierescue.org, reading our policies and guidelines, and if we sound like the right group for you, proceed to the online Adoption Application. From there, our receipt of your completed application will be confirmed by email. You then will receive a follow-up phone call if we feel you are a good potential applicant for the dog. A good conversation with the foster family, a reference from your veterinarian, and a home visit will round out our screening process. We take dog adoption very seriously. Please put a lot of thought into why you want to adopt a dog, and help us make a good match for your family. We appreciate your taking the time to visit with us. We will look forward to hearing from you as well.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Pueblo West 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 Pueblo West 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 Pueblo West paves the way for another one to be saved.
