Chantilly's Story...
Chantilly is a 7 year old female tricolor smooth collie. She came to rescue through sad circumstances, when her elderly owner had to move to a senior assisted living facility.

Chantilly is a delightful dog--we think the perfect family pet. She is well behaved and quiet. She is housebroken & already adept at the foster home's doggie door. She is playful and gets along well with other dogs. In her foster home, we find that she ignores cats and birds, and is respectful of their ducks and chickens. Tilly gets along very well (as you can see) with the foster family's child. She sleeps with him at night. She is nervous however around young children, and like most of our rescued collies, cannot be placed in a home where young children live or visit regularly. With adults and older children, Tilly is affectionate and seeks out attention & petting.

Tilly walks well on a leash, but she is shy outside the home. We suspect that she was not walked or taken places by her elderly owner. She can be frightened of noises, movement, and other unfamiliar things. Her foster family however is getting her out and about, and providing training to help her adapt to the outdoor world.

Tilly was evaluated by our veterinarian and found to be in good health. Unfortunately, Tilly is obese and will benefit from losing a significant amount of weight. Her foster home has her on a healthy diet & exercise program, and she has already lost 10 lbs since she arrived at the shelter weighing 88 lbs. She should be her 2004 weight of 48 lbs, so her adopters will likely have to continue her weight loss program.

If you are interested in Tilly please fill out an application and e-mail it to: cathy@calcollierescue.org.

NCR places dogs only in northern California. All NCR dogs are altered, health-checked, microchipped and current on rabies vaccinations before being placed in adoptive homes. Tilly is also current on her other vaccinations.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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