Chance is a 1-year-old sable collie being surrendered because the 4-year-old child in the home has taken to hitting him and although they have tried everything to get him to stop, they want Chance to feel safe in his home.
They got him as a puppy and he loves his family, including the 4-year-old and new baby, and loves their other dog. He loves snuggling and is very eager to please. He is house-trained and crate trained and should be crated when left alone/overnight because he is a chewer and has destroyed the boy’s toys (so maybe that’s why he hits him).
We just picked him up this morning and he’s pretty cute. Has a dark muzzle, which is adorable.
Just thought I’d send you a note to update you with Blue. He’s a FANTASTIC dog!!!!!!!! He has issues with eating if Sadie is within sight but we’re working on that and it’s getting better all the time as we figure out what works and what doesn’t. He has settled in here very well and is learning the routine of daily life. He gets along great with Sadie and loves to run and play with her in the backyard. And, all through the house too! He’s very good with my cats and is accepting that they don’t like to be herded all the time. Confuses him a bit when they just sit there and refuse to move!! Also, he has what I would think would be a comfy dog bed but chooses to be a rather large “bed hog” in my bed!! He’s a snuggler but so is Sadie. Usually one on each side of me sound asleep!! LOL!!! So to sum it all up… He’s a PERFECT fit here!!!!!!!!!!!!THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!
Bunker was my 15th foster in May of 2012. He was adopted by a family in Nebraska, who drove all the way to my house to pick him up. He lived out in the country with horses and they gave him a wonderful life. A very sweet and gentle dog who will be missed.
From Wendy – We had to put Bunker down today. He had become very arthritic and we tried everything the vet could offer. Today he was throwing up and crying. It just got to be too much for him. Thank you for being his foster mom. He had a great life and will be missed. We loved him.
Blue has strong herding tendencies and needed to learn what should be herded and who shouldn’t. Since coming into rescue, Blue has been working with a trainer with good results and his new dad will be continuing patient and gentle guidance. Blue’s new life also includes another collie buddy.
