MARLIN's Story...
MARLIN--"OUR GOLDEN BOY"--GENTLE--LOVING--BEAUTIFUL!!! MARLIN IS A GORGEOUS, 1 1/2 YEAR OLD, 45 POUND(HIS IDEAL WEIGHT WILL BE 55 LBS.), ROUGH COATED COLLIE. THE FIRST TIME YOU SEE MARLIN HE WILL STOP YOU IN YOUR TRACKS HE IS SO BEAUTIFUL. HIS COAT IS JUST STRIKING, CUDDLE SOFT, A WARM, RICH, DEEP, BUTTERSCOTCH COLOR ACCENTED WITH SPARKLING GLACIER WHITE HIGHLIGHTS ON HIS CHEST AND FACE. HE HAS THE SWEETEST FACE, WITH AN ADORABLE WHITE CIRCLE AROUND HIS NOSE WHICH LOOKS LIKE MARLIN JUST STUCK HIS NOSE IN A BIG FLUFFY SNOW BANK!!! HIS EYES ARE LARGE, CRYSTAL CLEAR, A RICH MAHOGANY COLOR WITH A GENTLE, KIND "I LOVE YOU" EXPRESSION ,IN OUR OPINION IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO. MARLIN IS A BEAUTIFULLY BUILT PUP WITH A LONG, FLOWING BODY, CHEST DEEP SHOWING STRENGTH, WITH A REGAL, DIGNIFIED STANCE. HE HAS A SMOOTH, FLOWING, GRACEFUL GAIT MOVING WITH A GREAT DEAL OF GRACE AND AGILITY. HIS COAT LOOKS LIKE FEATHERS BLOWING IN THE WIND. HIS MOVEMENTS, TRUE TO THE COLLIE BREED, ARE EFFORTLESS ALMOST AS IF HE'S FLOATING THROUGH AIR. HE IS BEAUTIFUL TO WATCH BUT THERE'S SO MUCH MORE TO MARLIN THEN JUST A PRETTY FACE ALTHOUGH HIS FACE IS PRETTY!!! MARLIN IS A DEEPLY AFFECTIONATE, UNDERSTANDING, GENTLE, CALM PUP WHO WILL GREET YOU WITH A SOFT, KIND EXPRESSION ON HIS FACE. THIS PUP ADORES ATTENTION AND AFFECTION. HE SOAKS UP EVERY MOMENT WHEN GIVEN HUGS AND KISSES. HE IS A LOVING COMPANION WHO'S TRUE HAPPINESS IS BEING WITH THOSE WHO LOVE HIM. OUR "AMBASSADOR OF GOODWILL" ADORES EVERYONE HE MEETS AND ALSO DELIGHTS IN THE COMPANY OF OTHER DOGS, ANY SIZE, HIS IMMEDIATE NEW BEST FRIEND. YOU COULD TAKE THIS GENTLE, LOVABLE, HAPPY GUY ANYWHERE AND HE WOULD MAKE YOU PROUD. JUST PLAN ON MAKING MANY STOPS TO LET FOLKS SEE MARLIN. MARLIN IS WHAT WE CALL A "MOVE IN READY" PUP. ONE WHO'S FIRST DAY WITH YOU YOU WOULD THINK HE HAD ALWAYS BEEN A PART OF YOUR LIFE. IF YOUR DAY STARTED WITH AN EARLY MORNING WALK MARLIN WOULD BE AT THE DOOR THOSE GORGEOUS EYES SPARKLING, TAIL WAGGING. A WALK ON A BRISK, SNOWY DAY HE WOULD LOVE, IMPERVIOUS TO COLD(REMEMBER HE HAS TWO COATS), A SNOWFLAKE OR TWO ON HIS NOSE AND HE'S HAPPY!!! IF YOUR WEEKEND CALLED FOR A TRIP TO THE MOUNTAINS JUST GRAB THIS "LET'S GO" PUP AND TAKE OFF. MARLIN WOULD SPEND THE DAY EXPLORING NEW TRAILS, ENJOYING THE DAY JUST ENJOYING LIFE. THERE IS ANOTHER PART TO THIS GREAT PUP'S PACKAGE. THE COLLIE BREED IS A HIGHLY INTELLIGENT BREED. THEY ARE EAGER TO LEARN, EXTREMELY FAST LEARNERS AND FIND ANYTHING NEW YOU INTRODUCE THEM TO EXCITING AND A CHALLENGE. THEIR EXPRESSION IS LIVELY, INQUISITIVE WITH A "WHAT IS IT" LOOK. AT DAYS END WHEN YOU AND MARLIN RETURN HOME AFTER A LONG AFTERNOON WALK AND YOU BUILD A FIRE TO SETTLE IN FOR THE EVENING YOU WILL FIND THIS "COMPANION" PUP CURLED UP AT YOUR FEET, NAPPING, CONTENT AND HAPPY BEING WITH THE MOST IMPORTANT PEOPLE IN THE WORLD TO HIM--HIS FAMILY!!! AS WE HAVE LEARNED THIS GORGEOUS GUY WITH HIS "I LOVE YOU" EXPRESSION IS A TREASURE AND WILL SHOWER HIS FAMILY WITH LOVE, TAIL WAGS AND KISSES(HE GIVES THE BEST KISSES EVER) EVERYDAY HE IS A PART OF YOUR LIFE. MARLIN IS A PUP THAT IS FAITHFUL, LOVES UNCONDITIONALLY AND FOREVER. WHEN MARLIN SNUGGLES IN AT NIGHT ON HIS BIG, SOFT BED THE LAST THING HE WANTS TO HEAR SPOKEN TO HIM BY HIS FAMILY IS "MARLIN WE LOVE YOU AND WE'RE SO GLAD YOU ARE A PART OF OUR FAMILY" AND YOU MIGHT SEE MARLIN BLINK THOSE GORGEOUS EYES, THUMP HIS PLUME LIKE TAIL AND YOU CAN BET THIS IS HIS WAY OF SAYING HE'S GLAD HE'S A PART OF YOUR FAMILY TOO!!!! THIS PUP IS A TRUE TREASURE!!! IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT MAKING MARLIN A PART OF YOUR LIFE PLEASE CONTACT***** ELLEN ellenmccabe@comcast.net

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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