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

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.

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.

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.

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. This lovely girl slipped seamlessly into her new home and the hearts of her new family, even her new collie siblings think she’s pretty great. Congratulations, sweet girl!

 

Haley

Beautiful Isla (nka Haley), a 3-year-old tricolor 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. Now she is in her new home with her family that is so excited to call her their own. Congratulations, sweet girl!

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.

Laddie

Handsome Laddie, an 11-year-old sable male has been adopted and will be living in Wisconsin. His owner passed away recently and although Laddie lived peacefully with lovely Molly and a cat for several years, now that he’s had some time as an ‘only’ dog, he’s decided that is the way he’d like to keep things. Laddie is an absolute sweetheart with people, freely giving kisses and love, and has been a wonderful house guest in his foster home. Laddie loves the snow but his favorite thing in the world is napping. We are so happy that he’s found his very own nice quiet retirement home.

 

 

 

All six of our sweet pups have now found their way to their forever homes. Venus (now Hazel), Apollo (now Teddy), Athena (now Seraphina), Zeus (now Theodore), Nike and Eros are all busy frolicking with resident dogs and keeping their new parents up at night. A wonderful bonus is that all of them are in homes with lots of previous collie experience so our only concern is everyone suffering from a serious case of cuteness overload.

 

Lucky Laddie

Recently adopted Laddie, an 11-year-old senior whose owner had passed away found his new home to be one that would save his life. While in foster care Laddie sometimes favored his right front leg, but the vet felt it was just due to arthritis. Shortly after being adopted, the limp got much worse. X-rays and testing indicated cancer and it was decided amputation was necessary.

Laddie came through surgery like a champ and is adjusting to his new normal. There are several updates on our Facebook page.

We at MWCR are very grateful that, even so soon after adopting him, his new mom is so dedicated to his care – we all know it doesn’t take long to fall in love! We are also thankful to have such a wonderful group of supporters and collie lovers that allow us to help with his care.
