Sweet senior Black Jack has been adopted and will be living in Minnesota. We’re happy to report that at his vet check up on Thursday he had gained three pounds! Excellent work on behalf of his foster home and his new family will continue fattening him up. His new home has another senior collie to be his buddy and I’m sure they are looking forward to spoiling this sweet boy with love and treats! I know his former mom would be so happy with this outcome. (Note: Jack needs some good thought sent his way. His appetite is down and he is losing weight. His vet is trying to figure out why).
Adorable Jack, a 1-year-old tricolor male, has been adopted and will be living in Minn. Jack was surrendered because his owner knew he was not happy living in an apartment and needed more space and attention. This sweet, loving boy is thrilled with his new family and big back yard. His mom says he’s a major cuddle-bug who loves to play and learn new things. So happy this boy has found the right fit for his personality!
Our lovely golden girls, Emeline, an 8-year-old merle and Jasmine, a 6-year-old tricolor, have been adopted and will be living in Minn.. The girls came to us as a bonded pair and we are so happy that they can stay together. Their new mom is excited to welcome them to her home and we’re all pleased the the resident collie and kitties think the girls are great companions. Congratulations Girls!
Sweet, petite 1-year-old smooth collie mix, Malibu, has been adopted and will be living in Illinois. Malibu came to us after she was surrendered to a shelter because her family couldn’t afford to keep her. At the shelter she was extremely scared and shy, but soon started to warm up to her caregivers. Malibu’s exam showed that she had a heart murmur and their vet felt she should have further testing, so they reached out to us to see if we could bring her in.
So, of course, we did just that. Our vet started with bloodwork and then an ultrasound, which showed that there are actually two different things going on with her heart. Neither one was a huge concern on its own but since she has both, they recommended a cardiac consult as well. The cardiologist gave the go ahead for her to be spayed and felt that her condition shouldn’t impact her quality of life. I want to give a huge Thank You! to her foster mom, Nancy Kibbe, who did such a great job getting Malibu ready for adoption (especially during these unusual times), and has continued to work with her adoptive mom to help Malibu settle into her new home.
