My story

Butch is NOT asweet catahoula leopard dog. DNA tests reveal he is 26.6% lab. He was dumped in the community of DFW Collie Rescue (southwest of Ft.Worth, TX). It took a while to make friends with him, but we did and brought him into our care. He appears to be house trained and is crate trained and a good rider. He walks on a leash but does need practice. He loves attention and is a big teddy bear. He will sit and shake hands for a treat. He is a big guy with clear blue eyes that can seem to stare a hole through you. He is good with female dogs, but has not been cat tested.. He loves to run in the fields and pastures at his foster home so he is definitely not a town dog unless there is place close by in the country for him to run. He does like to dig (especially when he smells something.). so he will need a secure fence. Butch is neutered, current on shots and heartworm negative and on preventive. He is also microchipped. The application and terms of adoption can be found at www.dfwcollierescue.org. The app is geared toward collies but can apply to any breed. When the app and terms of adoption are received a home visit will be scheduled (virtual can be arranged and references contacted. There is an adoption fee, 6.75% Texas sales tax and a small fee to register his microchip. Butch is a SUPER DOOPER dog and deserves a wonderful forever home! Call or text 214-668-5794 or email dfwcollierescue@gmail.com if more info is needed.

More about this rescue

DFW Collie Rescue was founded by Carolyn Edgmon in 2005 with a mission of rescuing collies from the Dallas/ Ft. Worth, Tx. area. Over the years collies from all parts of Texas and Oklahoma have been rescued and adopted. We are a small organization adopting around 15 collies a year and yet since 2005 over 300 collie and collie mixes have been adopted to new forever homes. Carolyn showed and raised collies for over 25 years and has an extensive knowledge of the collies. Foster homes are always needed and must be approved the same as an adopter. Once approved, a foster must agree to the terms of the foster home agreement. Any expenses for the collie in a foster home are paid for by DFW Collie Rescue. Donations are always needed to help pay expenses such as vetting, food, heartworm preventive, etc. Donations may be made via PayPal on our website www.dfwcollierescue.org. or by donating through "Friends & Family" by putting in dfwcollierescue@gmail.com . 100% of a donation goes for the care and welfare of the collies.
