CHARLIE's Story...
Charlie is an extremely handsome, older gentleman who is looking for the ideal retirement home. He is a very loving boy, and though he is not as active as he once was, he still loves to play with toys and enjoys being with his people.

Like most older dogs, Charlie has some arthritis in his rear legs so he can't handle long stairways, though he can manage a few steps here and there. He gets along well with the other dogs at his foster home, but he would also be perfectly happy if he were an only dog in his forever home. He is very fond of kitties, so a little feline companionship would also be great. Charlie loves children and has lived with them both in his previous home and at his foster home; however, young children would not be a good fit with him, since he can sometimes be a bit of a grouchy old man. He is not aggressive, but because of his arthritis, it would be easy for young, active children to accidentally hurt him. Older, gentle children would be fine.

Charlie has a very strong herding instinct and must have a fenced yard at his forever home. He is also a vocal collie who, like a garrulous old man, enjoys the sound of his own voice. Once he starts talking, he just doesn't seem to know when to stop. His foster mom is working with him on this, and it sometimes helps to redirect his attention to something else. She believes that living in a quiet, low key home would help with his barking.

Charlie is a loving, sweet, collie boy who is still enjoying life to the fullest. He can no longer race up and down stairs as he once did, but give him good friends (canine, feline or human), lots of plushy toys and a soft bed to lie on and he will be a very happy guy. Now all that's missing from his life is that perfect, forever home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

CHARLIE, 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.
