Description: When Annee arrived at her foster home, she was one confused, frightened, collie girl. She had already spent almost two weeks at the Humane Society and before that she had been picked up by animal control as a stray. We can only guess what life was like for this sweet, gentle girl while she was living on the streets.

We think that Annee has probably lived most or all of her life as an outdoor dog, since everyday household sounds are frightening and strange to her. The first night at her foster home, she refused to come inside and slept on deck. Her love of people finally lured Annee indoors, since she obviously longs to be near her foster mom and follows her everywhere.

Annee is gradually becoming more comfortable in the house. She is learning her housetraining quickly and is getting better every day. She loves to be brushed and will sit calmly for hours while her foster mom brushes her. She knows “sit” and “no” and though she would like to counter surf, she is just a bit too short to be successful at it. Annee is a strong, speedy girl who loves to run in the yard and play fetch. Unlike many collies, she is great at retrieving the ball and politely returning it to her foster mom. She is also extremely quiet.

Annee is fine with her foster mom’s cats and she was recently introduced to children. She is very, very, gentle with little ones, even babies, and doesn’t jump up on them. She would also be great with older kids who would throw the ball for her.

While Annee is good with cats and kids, she is very frightened of other dogs. When she goes for a walk, she does fairly well until she sees another dog and then it is everything her foster mom can do to control her. She is not aggressive – just scared. There are other dogs at her foster home and Annee is gradually becoming more comfortable around them, even to the point of giving one kisses, but she would probably be most happy in a home where she is the only dog.

Annee’s ideal forever home would be a quiet one with a fenced yard for her to play in. She would make a perfect companion for a retired person or couple who could lavish her with attention and provide the quiet, stable environment that she needs. Visits from the grandchildren would be an added bonus, since Annee is such a loving, gentle girl. If you have a quiet home and the patience to help Annee settle in, she will repay you with cuddles, kisses and a lifetime of love.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ANNE (aka-Annabelle), a Minneapolis Collie/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog for sale in Minneapolis, or seeking a Collie/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis 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/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog breeders who help with Collie/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Minneapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
