October adoptions

By Sarah Rebernick, VP & Adoption Coordinator

Scottie

Stunning Scottie, an 11-month-old tri-headed white smoothie, has been adopted and will be living in Iowa. He was surrendered to MWCR because his juvenile collie behavior was too much for his owners. They lived on a busy road, so he was very excited by all the traffic, bikes, motorcycles and skateboards zipping past. Scottie’s new forever home has two canine buddies, a collie and a sheltie, to join on long walks and dog park playtime. He seems to have assimilated into his new pack extremely well and this drop-dead gorgeous boy will get plenty positive reinforcement of his new dad.

Sherlock

And cutie patootie, 3-month-old Sherlock also went to his new home in Wisconsin with mom, dad and kitty.

 

Lady

Beautiful Lady, a 4-year-old sable/white, has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. Lady was sadly surrendered due to difficult life changes – her mom passed away a few months ago and her dad is moving to assisted living. They had adopted a collie from us previously so he knew that MWCR would be able to find a loving home for this sweet girl. Lady is now with her new mom and dad and they promise to give her lots of love and spoil her like crazy

 

Precious

Precious, a 1.5-year-old sable/white girl has been adopted and will be living in Clorado. She sends her thanks to our members, the Ferlaaks, who volunteered to fly her to her new home. Jim’s willingness to fly Precious made her travels to her new home so much easier than a two-day ground trip and the Friendly Skies a little furrier.

 

Benji

Handsome Benji, a 6-year-old sable-headed white male, has been adopted and will be living in Indiana. Benji was sadly surrendered to MWCR because his personality and medical issues were not a good fit for his home situation. Fortunately, his foster dad discovered that Benji was exactly the right boy for him and we are happy to announce that he had turned ‘foster’ into ‘forever’. Congratulations to both dad and Benji! 

 

Coco

Charming Coco, a 12-year-old sable/white smoothie has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. She was surrendered due to financial reasons and you might think that at her age she would be ready to retire and regally enjoy a comfy cushion, but no! This spunky senior has the energy of a much younger girl and loves to play, leaps effortlessly into a car and bounds up staircases.

We are especially happy for her because her new mom is the adopter who took such great care of sweet Laddie, the senior boy with bone cancer that recently left us. Thank you so much for opening your heart and home to another senior – you’re my hero!

 

Ollie

Ollie the Collie, a 10-month-old sable/white male has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. Ollie was sadly surrendered to MWCR by his loving Mom who has health issues and was facing surgery with many months of recovery. Although it was a heartbreaking decision she knew that she would not be able to give Ollie the attention and exercise that he needs. We’re so grateful that she put his needs first and that she trusted us to find a new loving home for him.

And there’s no need to worry about him getting enough exercise now! With a 2-year-old collie companion and two young human brothers, they’re sure to have a great time racing around in his new big backyard. Have a great time guys!

 

Agatha

Agatha, a 5-year-old sable/white female, has been adopted and will living in Minnesota. Agatha was surrendered due to a changing life situation but now she has changed the life of her new mom. Her exact words were “I’m in heaven” and I’m sure Agatha feels the same way.

 

Allie

 

Beautiful Allie, a 2-year-old tricolor female, has been adopted and will be living in Nebraska. She was reluctantly surrendered by her family who had rescued her from a bad situation, but they then realized that they don’t have the time and energy to provide adequate exercise and companionship for her. Fortunately for Allie, it didn’t take long for her foster family to realize that she was the perfect fit for them and now she’s landed in the perfect spot.

 

Lucy

Lovely Lucy, a 13-month-old sable-headed white female has been adopted and will be living in Illinois. Lucy was sadly surrendered to MWCR when her owner realized, as she got bigger, that a young dog was too much for her to handle with her medical issues. This beautiful girl’s new mom and dad are excited to have her in their lives to share their love and home.

 

Grady

Handsome Grady, a 9-month-old sable/white scotch collie, has been adopted and will be living in Minnesota. He was surrendered because his owners (who got him as a puppy), realized a young dog did not fit in with their lifestyle and wanted him to find a home that was right for him. He is a cross between an collie and an English shepherd, which have very similar temperaments and behaviors, so it really is a lovely mix and Grady is a lovely boy. He is now sharing his home with a new canine buddy and they certainly seem to be comfortable with each other,

September adoptions

By Sarah Rebernick, VP and Adoption Coordinator

Buddy

Handsome Buddy, a 1.5-year-old tricolor male, has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. Buddy was surrendered to MWCR by an older couple who realized they weren’t able to keep up with the needs of a young dog. Buddy’s new mom recently lost her senior collie and is so happy to have another collie in her life. They are both looking forward to long walks in the cool fall weather!

 

Beau

Friendly (Lam)Beau, a 1-year-old tricolor male, has been adopted and will be living in Minnesota. This sweetie was surrendered when his owner moved in with her daughter and is such a good boy that he won over the hearts of his foster family. Instead of a ‘fosture failure’ think we’ll call this one a ‘foster touchdown’! Go Pack!!

Heidi

 

Lovely Heidi, a 9-month-old sable/white female, has been adopted and will be living in Minnesota. This sweet girl was surrendered because she was too much for her older owners to handle. She ended up spending a lot of time alone in the yard and the neighbors were complaining about her barking (well, who can blame her)! She feels that squirrels and chipmunks were put on this earth for her entertainment – possibly because they had been her only entertainment for the past few months – but hopefully her new collie sister will prove a more interesting playmate.

Mycroft

Little cutie, Mycroft (nka Parker), a 10-week-old tricolor male, has been adopted and will be living in Illinois. Mycroft’s new extended family includes lots of other rescue buddies to show him the ropes. Besides his new sheltie brother, he gets to enjoy the company of a collie uncle, and an auntie and uncle sheltie. Everyone seems to be getting along well and we’re hoping mom and dad will get a full night’s sleep soon.

Graham

Gorgeous Graham, a 6-month-old blue merle male, has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. This sweet boy was sadly surrendered to MWCR due to the life changes that go along with divorce. We are grateful that we can be there for owners going through difficult times and are able to help find new homes for their beloved companions. Graham’s new home comes complete with both a canine and feline companion and word is that everyone is getting along well .

August adoptions

By Sarah Rebernick, VP & Adoption Coordinator

Beautiful Lassie, a 2-year-old sable/white female, has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. Lassie was surrendered when a growing family realized that they didn’t have the time necessary to meet the needs of this young girl. Now she will have lots of the attention she deserves from her new mom and dad who have lots of collie experience and will be able to show her the path to become a perfect companion. Congratulations, sweet girl!

July adoptions

By Sarah Rebernick, VP & Adoption Coordinator

Dua, Wylie, Wilson (nka Finley) and Winston (nka Kirby) have all found their permanent homes. Dua to Minnesota and the other three in Wisconsin. All of them will have canine siblings to play with and Finley & Kirby are our latest foster ‘failures’. Congratulations to everyone concerned and also to me, since Kirby is actually my personal ‘failure’, with Creena and Rivers’s approval.

 

Kirby

Pickles, a 13-year-old male, white factored smoothie has been adopted. A huge thank you to everyone who helped with him.

June adoptions

By Sarah Rebernick, VP & Adoption Coordinator

Duchess

Beautiful Duchess, a 2-year-old tricolor female, has been adopted and will be living in Minnesota. She has moved around quite a bit in her young life and her previous owner hoped that MWCR would be able to find the perfect fit for this lovely lady. Duchess can be nervous of new situations and is a bit reserved when first meeting new people. Her new parents are excited to give her a quiet, stable home where she can develop the skills, trust and good manners that will make her the wonderful companion she wants to be. No more looking for love in all the wrong place for this regal girl.

 

Zivah

Nellie, a 6-year-old sable/white girl and 9-year-old tricolor,  Zivah, have been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. They originally lived with several other collies in one loving home since they were a few weeks old.

Nellie

Unfortunately the hardest of life’s knocks tore their home apart and their loving Mom asked MWCR to re-home them. We’re so happy to announce that they are now officially foster ‘failures’. A big thank you to their foster mom for knowing these girls would be happiest staying together and making them a part of her family.

May adoptions

By Sarah Rebernick, VP & Adoption Coordinator

Gemma

Petite Gemma, a 1-year-old sable collie/aussie mix, has been adopted and will be living in Minnesota.  Her tall collie dad’s genes were dominant, but her more petite frame and slight merling comes from her blue merle aussie mom. Gemma is a lovely active young girl, still in the puppy stage of her life. Unfortunately for her, changing work schedules and the demands of a very young family meant that she was not getting the people time she needed and her family decided to surrender her to MWCR so she could find a home that fit her needs. This gem just needs some of her rough edges smoothed out and her new mom and dad are excited to help her reach her full potential.

 

Bruno

Bodacious Bruno, a 4-year-old sable/white male, has been adopted and will be living in Minnesota. Bruno was re-homed due to some difficulties within the family but his journey to a new home wasn’t a long one. His foster mom and collie brother knew pretty quickly that Bruno was meant to be a permanent part of their lives and have now made him an official member of the family. Nice work, Bruno!

 

Twister

Twister, a 5.5-year-old sable/white male, has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. Since he was a few weeks old this sweet boy has lived in one loving home, with several other collies including his sister, Arrow. Unfortunately the hardest of life’s knocks have torn their home apart and his loving Mom asked MWCR to re-home them. Twister is a clever, sweet-natured and mellow boy who will make a wonderful addition to his new home. I’m sure this big boy will twist them around his little white paw in no time.

 

Stormy

Handsome Stormy, a 1.5-year-old sable/white male, has been adopted and will be living in Minnesota. Stormy is a very sweet, gentle boy who is a bit uncertain of new things at first but quickly warms up and takes them in stride once he realizes there’s nothing to be afraid of. His new mom and dad are happy to help him with that and his new collie brother is already making him feel comfortable – the cat is reserving judgement.

 

 

Big boy Badger, a 1-year-old blue merle, has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. This sweet boy is smart and loving, so he is quickly picking up on how to behave like the good boy we know he is, although he remains convinced that he is a lapdog . He is sure to get lots of love, attention and snuggles in his new home and he was appropriately respectful of his new kitty sibling.

April adoptions

By Sarah Rebernick VP & Adoption Coordinator

Dean

Sweet senior collie mix, Dean, has been adopted and will be living in Minnesota. Dean came to MWCR after he was picked up as a stray. Since no family came to claim him he was happily transferred to us and is such a nice, loving boy that his foster mom and dad quickly realized that he was the perfect fit for their family. Congratulations to all concerned!

 

Lucy & Ryder

Ryder, a 10-year-old male tricolor and his daughter, Lucy, an 8-year-old sable/white, have been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. These two lovely collies were surrendered by the family of their owner when she became ill and was no longer able to care for the them. Handsome Ryder has a few health issues that his new dad will keep an eye on but we’re happy to report that neutering has reduced his somewhat excessive interest in the lady dogs’ … um … backsides ;-). We’re so happy that he and Lucy were able to be adopted together!

Willow

Beautiful Willow, a 3-year-old merle female, has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. Because of unexpected and difficult changes in life, her owner to surrender her to MWCR, reluctantly, but with her best interests at heart.

Trudy

Trudy, a 6-year-old loving mahogany sable girl, has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. She’s a very sweet, snuggly smaller girl (about 50 lbs.), who is a great kisser. We don’t know much about her former life but she is extremely loving and delights in being with her people, so much so that her foster parents think she would make a great therapy dog. Trudy will be enjoying her new home with a large fenced yard, a collie companion and a few cats just to keep life interesting.
