My name is Rusty and I am waiting anxiously for you to adopt me. I’m a young Collie Great Pyrenees mix of about nine months old. I was found wandering around on a very busy highway. Thankfully someone cared enough to pick me up. And the rest is history as they say. I’m kind of a big fuzzy teddy bear. I love to have someone pet me and I will lay my head in your lap so you can. But, since I am a young boy who really does like to play I will need an in-home dog buddy to play with. And some good kibble. I LOVE to eat! So what are you waiting for? You need to start filling out an application so you can meet me. Applications can be found at
Can’t wait to hear from you!


Rusty is a gorgeous dog. Just a youngster. And he was found going back and forth over a busy highway. We were notified of him and took him into rescue. He has beautiful golden eyes and great coloring. His pictures don’t do him justice. He is a big boy and loves attention. Where he came from he wasn’t probably getting much. He likes to lay his head in your lap or come and stand really close to you. He just wants to be near someone. But he is young and will need a playmate. Rusty is ready to go at any time.

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.
