Patriot's Story...
Patriot is a sweet young dog who is playful and very loving. He is a bit of a suck with his foster mom. He would be a wonderful family companion and would do well in a home with a backyard, an outdoorsy family with older kids, and lots of cuddle time. He is approximately 9 months old and weighs 30 lbs however he is gaining as he was initially underweight. He should be more around 45 lbs when fully grown.

Patriot is a very sweet gentle dog. He has a very soft mouth when he is playing. Not a lover of his crate, he settles well once in it and sleeps through the night. At times when he is asked to find his baby toy he will come to his foster mom and turn over for a pat. He has a let's play look in his eyes at times and loves to go on walks and play with his toys. He is learning to go up and down the stairs in less than a single bound. Very quiet dog at home and outside and has only given a couple of short barks when excited playing.

This poor boy had such a bad ear infection and was a mess when he was first picked up as a stray. He has just finished his meds and although he has a scab from scratching his ear it is healing nicely. Other than that he is now a very healthy and happy boy.

He knows where the front and back doors are and gives only a low whimper when he wants to be let out. He knows stay but will sit and roll over at times. He knows the word no and come and he knows what up means when he is out and has to go on stairs. He is learning to get his toys. Has been fully house trained since he arrived and will give a low whimper at the door to be let out if foster mom is busy with other things. At night when he knows he has to go in his crate he can be stubborn but settles well once in it both in the day and at night. He is learning about walking on a leash and getting better everyday but needs some work with meeting people and dogs as he thinks they are out to play with him and will jump ahead or back at first. Has only been in the car twice but settled well and lays down.

His energy level is moderate but he likes to have a quiet time after a good walk. Loves to run up and down the stairs in the house and play with his foster mom and follow her and his toys, even watches tv once in a while. Really enjoys his daily brushings and was even quiet in the bath. He would be best suited with older kids only as he tends to jump around and might knock a small child over. It would also appear that he doesn't quite understand when children are making a lot of loud noise and gets a little unnerved by it all.

Patriot would do well in a home with a big fenced yard and older children or adults that can spend lots of time with him as he grows from his puppy stage. He would not do well being crated for long periods. He is a lovely gentle little dog and weighs about 30 lbs at present full of energy at times and has a happy mischievous look in his eyes. Needs to be loved and cared for and he will give back his love many more times.

If you think Patriot would be a good addition to your family, please submit an application for consideration.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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