Finding a Forever Home Friday

It’s Friday, so that means it’s time for another “Finding a Forever Home Friday.”  This week I chose the Minnesota Wisconsin Collie Rescue.

Below are just a few of the collies looking for their forever homes, so please visit their website and see if your new best friend is there, waiting for you!

Basie – A 10-year-old Smooth Tricolor Male
"WANTED: The new and improved love of my life! Job requirements include a homebody, a hand or two or three ready to caress my head at a moment's notice, a quiet home with few or no steps, preferably a fenced yard, and one or more people who will love me to the end of time. Other, calm dogs welcome, cats are OK, and older sedate children are fine too. And if you don't live too horribly far from my foster home it couldn't get any better than that! It is not every day that you have the opportunity to adopt a ready-made hand rest, so what are you waiting for? You can mend my broken heart, AND have a soft, furry place to rest your hand while you give me some lovin'!"

Allie Mae – A 9-10-year-old Sable & White Female
"Foster Mom calls me the Queen Bee, and certainly my royal subjects (foster brothers and sisters – both canine and feline alike) defer to me in all things because they clearly recognize my superior rank. But don't let my noble lineage put you off! I am a total sweetheart who loves absolutely everyone, even the commoners amongst me! My foster brother, Willie, calls himself 'King of the Collies' – yeah, whatever. We'll just let him have his fun as there is only one royal highness in this household, and we all know who that is!"

Pippa – A 7-10-year-old Mahogany Sable and White Female
"Hi, I'm Pippa, although given my hunting prowess, I think Diana or Artemis after the Roman or Greek goddess of the hunt would be more appropriate, but whatever! I get along with cats and most dogs, but occasionally another dog makes my hackles rise. I love older, respectful kids. Mostly, I am looking for somebody to love, who is home most of the time, has a fenced yard, and maybe a compatible canine companion. Oh, and since I have discovered the joys of sleeping on a love seat, maybe a comfy place to sleep would be in the cards as well? Just sayin'...?"

Rocky – A 5-6-year-old Sable and White Male
"Like my favorite movie hero, I am fighting back against long odds. I came from a bad situation where food, loving, and grooming were in very short supply. Despite my rough start in life, I am a sweet, loving boy who loves absolutely everyone. I prefer to dine alone, possibly due to the dog-eat-dog world I came from where every meal time was a scrabble to get one's share of kibble, but I will probably outgrow that quirk once I realize there will always be enough food in my bowl and that it is mine alone! Once my fur grows back, I am told I will be quite stunning, whatever that means. I hope you can look past my bad hair days and see the beauty I will become!"
