Caesar's Story...
Look for me at: http://www.mwcr.org/2012/caesar.htm

The original Caesar dreamed of ruling the world. Here at MWCR, our Caesar's dreams are more modest: a soft rug to sleep on, gentle hands to scratch his ears, and a home where he can live out his life in loving kindness. Until recently, Caesar was an outdoor farm dog who was well loved and cared for, but when the family was forced to move to a place where he couldn't come, he was surrendered to MWCR. Now he is looking for a new forever home.

Caesar is a big, tall boy who weighs roughly 95 pounds. He needs to lose a pound or two which would not only get him ready for swimsuit season, but would help with the arthritis in his rear legs. Although he takes Cosequin for this, which helps him move more easily, he would definitely prefer a forever home that did not have lots of stairs for him to climb.

Caesar is a very loving boy who likes nothing better than to have his face and ears rubbed, and he will reward you with moans and groans of pleasure. Although he would love to get this treatment for hours, he is very good about taking the hint when you don't have time to give him a massage and will go and lie down. In the morning he loves to wake his foster mom with his cold, collie nose, but if she wants to sleep in, he will lie down again until she is ready for him.

Although Caesar is primarily a “people” dog, he has lived with other dogs and gets along well with the resident dogs at his foster home. He would be perfectly happy as an only dog or with another, laid back canine. We haven't seen him interact with cats, but it is highly probable that he would simply ignore them. Gentle, older children would also be fine, but because he is a mature, mellow boy, he would not be a great companion for younger kids who might want to rough-house with him.

Caesar is a quiet collie who only barks when the other dogs do so. He is house trained and has free range of his foster home for up to nine hours when the family is out. Prior to being neutered, he showed some marking behavior immediately after eating, so his foster mom always took him outside as soon as he finished his food. In all probability this behavior will stop once the hormones are out of his system. He is tolerant of grooming, though it isn't his favorite thing, and his fur is currently growing out after having been shaved down due to matting. He has learned to enjoy car rides and is also learning to walk on his leash. Having been a farm dog, the whole “leash thing” is new to him and he does tend to pull. He has not shown any inclination to wander, so probably would not need a fenced yard.

Caesar is looking for a calm, quiet home that wants a gentle collie with a laid back view of the world. He has no interest in defeating the Huns or ruling foreign lands, but he would be a very happy boy if he could conquer the hearts of his new, forever family.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Caesar, a Minneapolis Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Collie for sale in Minneapolis, or seeking a Collie 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 breeders who help with Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Minneapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
