Congratulations to sweet Brianna (now known as Lady) and her new family!
Prince 2 and puppy Bridget have been adopted this weekend. Prince will be regally residing in Wisconsin and Bridget will be in Minnesota. Prince was surrendered to MWCR after a fire destroyed his owners’ property and they sadly needed to find a new home for him.
Bridget’s new family says: she has a wonderful personality and is fitting into our family so well. We feel blessed to have her!
Handsome 10-year-old sable headed white, Spencer, has been adopted and will be living in Minnesota. Spencer was surrendered because his family did not have the time to give him the attention he deserves. Spencer’s new mom and dad are retired so he’ll get lots of love and he has new senior collie brother to hang with. So happy for this sweet boy!
Handsome 4-month-old Shamrock has been adopted and will be living in Illinois. Always love to see puppies and kids playing.
Beautiful white puppy Brooklyn came to us from a breeder who contacted us when he realized that she was deaf. Being born deaf or blind is usually an all too common side effect when two merles are bred together and that is often done in the hopes of producing more white, merle or unusually colored puppies. We are thrilled that Brooklyn has been adopted into a family that includes another collie who is both deaf and partially blind, so mom and dad are fully prepared to help this little sweetie lead a fun, full life. She’s already learning sign language and her big sister collie is helping her to master the art of stair climbing. We’re so grateful to her new family and excited to see her grow up!
Beautiful Zara (nka Meadowsweet), a 2.5-year-old sable female, has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. Zara was sadly surrendered by her family with another collie (Prince2) when they needed to rebuild their lives after a devastating fire. Unfortunately, the necessary upheaval of her life was very upsetting to Zara and she has had (and continues to have) some issues to work through. Fortunately, her foster mom has dedicated herself to helping Zara recover and over the last few months, while working to gain her trust, they have formed a loving, lifetime bond that will be the basis of Zara’s ability to blossom like the meadowsweet she’s been renamed for. Her foster mom knows that there’s still lots of work to do and that it would not be in Zara’s best interests to start over with a new family so Meadow has officially found her forever home. Her new mom says she can’t imagine her life without her. Congratulations to both of these lovely ladies!
And last, but not least, ridiculously handsome Teddy, an 8-month-old tri headed white male, has been adopted and will be living in Minnesota. Teddy is a big, sweet, playful boy who was extremely nervous when he first came into foster but quickly relaxed in the company of the resident collies and let his true happy, puppy personality show. Teddy’s new home has a big brother collie to show him the ropes and an extended family of collie-lovers to adore and guide him. Congratulations to this big heart breaker and his new family!
Beautiful Colleen, a five month sable girl, was the last of the four Irish named pups to go to their forever home. Congratulations sweet girl!
