Lola's Story...
Once upon a time there were three little refugees from Kansas that needed some place to go. Their Fairy Godmother was a wonderful dog rescue woman named MiChielle who never takes “no” for an answer. (That is a very important quality for a dog rescue person!) MiChielle told us the general information about the puppies and asked if we would consider taking them. We said yes, and that is how most conversations start out around these parts. MiChielle had the privilege of naming the three dogs so that we could start making arrangements for these unnamed pooches. Three tri-colored dogs . . . Hmmmm . . . Coconut, Cocopuff and Cocobean! Oh, MiChielle, we will be laughing at you for many years to come! The mother is a purebred full-sized tri-color rough coated Collie and the father is the tiniest Aussie anyone has ever seen. What does this make the puppies? Adorable. Lola (previously known as Coconut) is a beautifully formed 11-month old “pocket Collie.” A pocket Collie is a descriptive term used by our rescue to give you a vision of a smaller dog that may be better suited to a smaller house or the perfect choice for people who prefer a 25# dog over a 60# rough coated Collie. She is the size of a Sheltie but with more of the Collie temperament. Although she is shy at first from living without human companionship for her first year of life, she has made the decision to be a full-fledged family member in her foster home. And Diane tells us that Lola has become quite the dog! Love and patience have won her over and she follows her foster mom from room to room during the day and waits for “dad” to come home to do the same with him. She enjoys the company of all the other dogs she has met so far. And on walks she does huge exuberant zooming circles around her human and joyfully chases bugs. Lola (from the Barry Manilow tune!) would like to have a doggie sibling to play with in her forever home. She expects to be in the house, in your bed if possible and definitely in the kitchen if cooking is happening. This is not a dog that will spend even one more lonely day in a backyard with no stimulation. It simply can’t happen! So, her ideal potential family will have children over the age of 8, an adult family member who stays home a great deal and a firm commitment to making Lola’s life awesome. We have promised all three of these little sweethearts that their coming to Collie-rado was the best thing that could have happened to them and we always keep our promises. Please begin the process for adoption by going to our website at, 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. Lots of good conversation with the foster family, a reference from your veterinarian, and a home visit round out the 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

Lola, a Pueblo West Collie/Australian Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie/Australian Shepherd for sale in Pueblo West, or seeking a Collie/Australian Shepherd 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/Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Collie/Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Pueblo West paves the way for another one to be saved.
