RED ALERT!!! My name is Big Rudy and I am ready for adoption! I am a very friendly Collie/Great Pyrenees mix. And I would love to be your next family member and playmate for any other canine kids you might have. Let me tell you about me. My beginnings weren’t too great. I was living in a truck yard around San Antonio, Texas. And the truck yard was moving. Some very nice people brought me to the rescue in Houston from the other side of San Antonio. They didn’t want to send me to a shelter. And I’m very thankful they didn’t. Those places are not very good for us. So now life is so much better, but I would love to have my own home and family. I love to run and play a lot. Little dogs, big dogs, it doesn’t matter. I just like to play and always have a smile on my face since life is better than it was. Let’s meet! Go to and fill out an application so we can get together.

Can’t Wait!!

Big Rudy

Big Rudy is a great dog. He’s friendly, loves to play, and is an affectionate boy. And a really handsome guy with big golden eyes. But, he does need a playmate. He will play with any of the dogs, big or little. And he loves to run. As Rudy told you he was living in a truck yard that was moving. One of the employees did not want to take him to a shelter. Since the San Antonio shelter would put him down if not adopted. Her and her husband drove him to us which says a lot about them since it was not a short drive. You never would have known he had been living outside. Rudy has not had an accident in the house since he's been here. He settled in pretty quick. So he is house-trained and crate-trained and ready for his new home. Go to our website www.texascollierescue .org and fill out an application if you are interested in Big Rudy.

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.
