Dante, an 8-year-old sable/white male, has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. Dante is a previous MWCR collie who was sadly surrendered back to us when his owner had some unexpected and difficult changes in her life. But fortunately for Dante he won the hearts of his foster family and will not have to look any further for his forever home. According to his new mom he is an awesome dog with a great personality and sense of humor. She says she feels lucky to have found him and I’m sure he feels the same way :-).
Banjo (fka Ashby), a 6-month-old sable/white, has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. Some of you may have met Banjo at the Minnesota Frolic and I don’t think any of us are surprised that this sweet boy wormed his way into the hearts of his foster family in record time. His new mom says she’s never seen a pup waltz into a house and make himself so at home so quickly, and even his new big sister collie thinks he’s pretty awesome.
Lassie D, a 6-month-old sable/white, has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. In the proud tradition of the original Lassie, Lassie D is a boy despite the confusing name. He originally came into rescue when he ran a’fowl’ of the neighbor’s chickens and needed to find a new place to live. He’s a true people dog who loves his humans, especially the little ones, and fortunately his new home comes equipped with one for his enjoyment 🙂
Dundee, a 7-year-old sable headed white male, has been adopted and will be living in Michigan. This sweet boy is very shy and has had some medical issues to overcome, but his new mom and dad have the patience, love and experience to make sure everything will be better from here on out. I know we all wish him a happy new life!
So excited about this one! Emily, a 10-year-old tricolor, has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. Emily originally came to MWCR from the Dodge County Humane Society where she was brought in as a stray. When Emily was found she was miserable, itchy and extremely skinny with a bad flea infestation and horrible skin infection. We want to send a huge ‘thank you!’ to the many people who have helped Emily along the way and an extra big shout out to her foster mom, Elaine, who took such excellent care of her. Emily’s skin condition is now under control, her coat is lovely, she is putting on weight and, although she will probably need medication for the rest of her life, her new mom is dedicated to making sure she will always be comfortable and loved. We’re all proud of you sweet girl!
Baxter, a 6-year-old tri-headed white male, has been adopted and will be living in Indiana. Baxter is a large and loving boy, well maybe a bit too large 😦 He weighs in at 105 lbs and some of that definitely needs to go before he’s ready for a swimsuit cover shoot, so we see lots of walkies in his future. His new dad has been looking for a ‘velcro’ collie to be his pal and Baxter certainly qualifies. From the minute they met he didn’t leave his side – it was love at first sight for both of them 🙂
Skip, a 1.5-year-old sable/white male has been adopted and will be living in Minnesota. Skip was surrendered because his owner’s health kept them from being able to handle a young, energetic dog. Fortunately for him we had an adopter looking for an active buddy for their young collie. When these two boys met they were instant BFFs and now they both have a playmate to enjoy 🙂
Simon, a 5-year-old sable-headed white, has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. Simon was originally brought to a local humane society as a stray and then came to MWCR. This sweet, gentle boy is being treated for Lyme’s and is doing well, although he may continue to have some pain in his front leg. Simon loves to snuggle and enjoys the company of other animals, which is wonderful since he is joining a family with other collies and a kitty. We don’t know anything about Simon’s earlier experiences but I know he’ll be enjoying life from here on out 🙂
