Sweet Annabelle, an 8-year-old mahogany sable, has been adopted and will be living in Iowa. This lovely girl was reluctantly surrendered when her owner had to move for her health and couldn’t take her much-loved pet. Fortunately for everyone Annabelle’s foster home knew she was the perfect fit for them and she will be staying with them forever 🙂
I am so happy to announce that Arkansas Ollie, an 8-year-old sable/white male, has been adopted and will be turning his foster family into his forever home. Ollie originally came into rescue as the victim of extreme abuse due to neglect. This poor boy had bad hips, terrible teeth, was very overweight and heartworm positive. Now all his issues have been sorted out, his beautiful coat has grown back and he is living the good life with his new mom, dad and assorted furry siblings. Congratulations sweet boy!
Deuce, a 6-year-old mahogany sable male, has been adopted and will be living in Minnesota. Often people think that the only animals who need rescue have been lost, abused or neglected but the truth is that sometimes even beloved family pets need a helping paw. Handsome Deuce found himself in just such a situation. Although Deuce came into MWCR under sad circumstances he was originally purchased by his family at eight weeks of age and had a great life enjoying walks, car rides, kids, kitties, other dogs and comfy couches. Unfortunately for everyone involved, he was surrendered due to a divorce that resulted in his owners having to relocate to housing that did not allow dogs. This big sweetheart has been loved every step of the way (his foster mom had a pretty hard time letting him go, too), and now he has a new forever home. Deuce wants everyone to know that he is especially happy that his new home has kitties because he thinks they’re the greatest!
Handsome Fletcher, a 5-year-old sable/white male has been adopted and will be living in Illinois. Fletcher was sadly surrendered when his family lost their home. This big boy is now settling in to his new home with an MWCR collie sister and a kitty sibling as well as mom, dad and two siblings of the less furry variety ;-).
Griffin, a 1.5-year-old sable/white male, has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. Through no fault of his own Griffin found himself looking for a forever home and MWCR was happy to help him out. Griffin now has his very own family with previous collie experience and a big brother dachshund to pal around with. Enjoy your new life, handsome boy!
Pretty Ellie, a 2-year-old honey sable/white, has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. Ellie was found as a stray and originally brought to a veterinary clinic. After a few weeks there she was transferred to a local shelter and although they tried to help her as much as possible, she was not doing well in a shelter environment. When this shy, quiet girl got to her MWCR foster home she was quite weak and thin but it didn’t take her long to realize it was a pretty nice place and she began to gain energy, weight and confidence. Now Ellie has found her forever home which she will share with a handsome, relaxed collie brother who seems happy to show her how wonderful it can be to have her own family to love.
Ruby, a 2.5-year-old sable/white smoothie female, has been adopted and will be living in Minnesota. Ruby has been shuffled around quite a bit in her short life and some of the homes she found herself in were not very loving, resulting in her being timid and fearful of new situations. But those days are over and her new mom and dad are dedicated to helping Ruby overcome her fears and live a relaxed and happy life. She will be sharing her new home with two big brother collies and some kitties who I know will help her realize how good life can be. Congratulations sweet girl!
