Facts about Senior Palliative Collies

  • Breed: Border Collie/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) Mix
  • Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
We have several border collies of advanced age looking for placement into retirement/palliative homes. All of these dogs are quite elderly and each of them has health issues, and are likely not with us for all that long (1-3, maybe 4-5 years). But every one of them deserves a loving home and a soft bed for the remainder of their lifetimes. They have been fully vetted and there is no adoption fee, but excellent, committed homes with people who are financially capable of managing their health needs until the end are required (bloodwork to monitor health, Metacam/Meloxicam daily, etc). They are all quite old, and some may have small incontinence issues (hard to tell who as all 4 are kept together), and all are on some mix of pain killer/anti-inflammatories for the Hind ends and supplements. All the dogs get along well with other dogs. The dogs all have amazing temperaments and were well loved, they listen well and love affection. These are NOT active dogs. You may be able to go a couple blocks but they are not running /hiking/ exercise companions.

Caleb, Cyan, and Millie were born Sept 16, 2005. Crumpet was born in May 2003.

Crumpet is a curly haired mixed breed border collie/ terrier with a weak hind end. She was actually a star in a Dr. Dolittle movie. She wants to try and play like crazy , but her back legs are shakey. Vet has X-rayed and diagnosed Lumbosacral Stenosis / Cauda Equina, which can stay the same or progress as a dog ages. It has a lot of different symptoms and shows different depending on the dog. She is on Metacam/Meloxicam for pain and inflammation relief, and of course supplements like glucosamine etc. She can be a little vocal when goofing around and has a high pitched bark so not good for apartments etc. Crumpet has very high prey drive and cannot be around small creatures, cats, etc.

Moose is ADOPTED.

Lastly, we have 3 siblings (Caleb- black and white, Millie- brown black and white, and Cyan- brown black and white with a blue eye).

Caleb has been X-rayed and diagnosed Lumbosacral Stenosis / Cauda Equina, which can stay the same or progress as a dog ages. It has a lot of different symptoms and shows different depending on the dog. He is on Metacam/Meloxicam for pain and inflammation relief, and of course supplements like glucosamine etc. He shows his age both in looks and gait etc.

Millie and Cyan hide their age well. Their bloodwork indicted possible early kidney disease, which could be genetic, but other than that they are pretty healthy. Millie and Cyan are quite bonded. Cyan is starting to show some stiffness in his back end.

This group of seniors were originally supposed to be 6 dogs boarding for 3 months. Instead they have been abandoned with me going on 2 years this summer. 2 are adopted but 4 are left looking for homes. Last year they cost me approx $10,000 to get all vetting up to date - they were in rough shape with abscessed teeth, tumors, and many other issues. They are due for yearly X-rays and senior bloodwork again.. If you are able to make a donation to help with their check up this year please reply to this listing, email carriecorbett@hotmail.com, or You can also call our vet, Cottonwood Vet Clinic, and donate via credit card to Carried Through's Account 604-824-5848. Thank you :) We cannot do this alone.
