Do you like NASCAR? Do you also like Collies? If so, we have the perfect Collie for you. Hannah
is a shorter Collie (compact and low to the ground, just like a race car) who loves to do high-speed laps
around the the picnic table at her foster home. She also enjoys showing off her speedy moves at the
dog park where she is clearly queen of the track. Her foster mom calls her NASCAR doggie.
Hannah came to MWCR as an owner surrender. Her family loved her very much and took great care
of her, but when they were faced with some health issues, they were forced to move into a smaller
dwelling. In their new home, they felt that Hannah didn’t have the space that she needed and wasn’t
getting as much exercise as she should, so they made the heartbreaking decision to give her to MWCR.
Hannah is a very sweet and well behaved girl who is fully house trained and crate trained. In fact,
she loves her crate, and when she knows her foster family is going out, she will open the crate door,
go in and wait for the treat that she knows is coming. Hannah rides well in the car and is pretty good
on her leash unless she sees a squirrel – then all bets are off. Perhaps she thinks that the squirrels are
challenging her supremacy as the fastest creature on the block. Hannah will bark to alert her family of
any strange sounds or when people pass by the house, so she makes a great watchdog.
Hannah gets along nicely with everyone she meets. She is currently living in harmony with a cat and
gets along well with the resident dogs. She loves the dog park and when she approaches she barks
furiously as if to alert the other dogs that the queen of the track has arrived. Once there, however, she
is not at all bossy or aggressive and plays happily with the other dogs.
Hannah will fit beautifully into almost any family. She is energetic, but not hyperactive, and enjoys
walks with her family and trips to the dog park. She loves just about everyone she meets with the
single exception of squirrels, so it might be better if her forever home did not include small rodents
like rats or guinea pigs. She is a happy, healthy, loving girl who is hoping that her forever home will
include either a race track or a picnic table where she can show off her moves!
