March adoptions

By Sarah Rebernick, VP & Adoption Coordinator


Beautiful Callie, a 1.5-year-old female tricolor, has been adopted and will be living in Nebraska. Callie is an energetic girl who was surrendered by her heartbroken mom, when she realized she did not have the energy and good health to give Callie the attention and exercise that she needed. Happily, her new home has another young playful collie brother and very active parents who will make sure this sweet girl gets the training and exercise she needs to be a wonderful companion. Congratulations to all!


Handsome Blaze, a 3-year-old sable/white male, has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. He was surrendered by his loving mom after a change in life circumstances caused her to realize that the best thing for Blaze was to find a new place to live. His new home includes kids to play with, lots of room to romp and a family who is able to spend lots of time with him. Congratulations!


Handsome Buddy, a 1-year-old tricolor male, has been adopted and will be living in Nebraska. Although this sweet boy had created a loving bond with his owner, as a very shy and fearful boy, she realized that the circumstances in her home made it a poor fit for him. Buddy’s foster home has worked diligently with him and a trainer and he is doing remarkably better, so we’re excited to have found an adopter with a loving, quiet home and experience with frightened dogs. Everybody looks pretty happy with the way things turned out.

Our special boy, gorgeous Graham, a 2-year-old blue merle, was adopted and became a true Lassie-style hero all in one day!

See Graham’s story featured in our newsletter.
Originally an MWCR adoptee as a young pup, Graham came back into foster after he started having seizures which quickly progressed to being frequent and severe. We are so grateful to the Kiesow family for stepping up to take on this difficult foster and for all the love they gave him. While in foster Graham had a neurology consult at UW-Vet with an MRI and spinal tap to see if there was some underlying cause for his seizures. All his test results were normal so it was classified as idiopathic epilepsy and the only thing we can do at this point is work on finding the best combination of medication, etc., to control his seizures. Happily, yesterday Graham went to live with his new family who understands his needs and is ready to make sure he gets the appropriate care. We know he’s going to enjoy his new human siblings and his collie sister.
