Joyous Jessie, a 4.5 year-old sable/white female has been adopted and will be living in Minnesota. Her Mom hit a rough patch in life and tearfully surrendered Jessie to MWCR in order for her to have a better future. This sweet lady will now be enjoying her huge fenced yard, sister collie and a mom and dad that are home most of the time. Congratulations to all!
Sweetie Dickens, a 2-year-old red tricolor collie mix, has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. She came to MWCR after being brought in from a cruelty case by the AHS. She was very scared and not doing well in the shelter environment but really blossomed in foster care.
Buddy (aka Snowy), a 2-year-old sable-headed white male, has been adopted and will be living in Illinois. This handsome boy is a deaf “double dilute”, the result of breeding two merle collies. He was sadly surrendered due to the owner losing her home. He’s such a love that his foster mom wanted to keep his original name of Buddy because that is exactly what he is. He is also quite the gentleman and enjoys the company of other dogs and cats so I know he’s going to love having both a new canine and human sister to play with.
Sweet Piper, a 7-month-old female sable merle has been adopted and will be living in Minnesota. This lovely girl was reluctantly surrendered by her loving mom because of changes in her life that make it difficult to meet Piper’s needs. You see, Piper had an accident when she was four months old that resulted in three fractures to her pelvis and hip and needed to find a home that could help with her exercise regime and rehabilitation. Although she will never be an agility dog or run a marathon, her new mom is more than happy to share her life with such a loving companion.
Prince, a 6-month-old Gollie (collie/golden mix), has been adopted and will be living in Minnesota. Prince, who came to MWCR when there was a death in the family, was adopted out a couple weeks ago but his new family unfortunately discovered they were extremely allergic to him. Happily, there was another adopter who had been waiting for a happy, wiggly bundle of puppy energy to join their family and Prince now has a new home with a canine buddy and two human brothers to keep him entertained. Congratulations cutie!
Buddy is a big boy, weighing in at almost 130 lbs., so his new mom will be continuing his strict diet in order to lose weight and avoid injuries to his joints and ligaments. But just as he is “king-sized” in his physique, he also has a king-sized sweetness to his personality. He’s such a good boy that the store manager at Walmart offered to hire Buddy as a Greeter!
