Our Adoptable Dogs
The Collie is a devoted family dog, especially with children. Although they require daily walks, they can also be couch potatoes. Despite the Rough Collie’s immense coat, they only need to be brushed about once a week, although the need for brushing may increase in shedding season. Collies are also a very clean breed and are noted for not having a doggie odor.
Pinky (Medical Hold)
Pinky (Medical Hold)Six year old rough coated collie, a bit fearful of loud voices and raised hands but warms up quickly to a gentle touch. She has hypothyroidism, seems to enjoy other dogs, and adores both men and women equally. Will only consider placement in an adult household because of her medical and diet concerns.
Shelties love their families, but may be reserved at first with strangers. As a herding dog, they can be inclined to bark at and herd people. Shelties thrive on the farm but adapt to many living situations if given proper exercise. The breed’s dense double coat requires regular maintenance.

BreeBree is a small black and white senior Sheltie, who came to RMSCR from St. Louis, with the help of a fellow Sheltie rescue organization there. A good Samaritan, Sheltie-loving lady happened to be driving to Manitou Springs and brought the lovely little Bree to us! How about that for fate? Bree (short for Sabrina) is very quiet for a Sheltie - in fact, she hasn't barked once since she was rescued! Bree has started her thyroid medication and over time we should see improvement in her fur and energy. We think she's a fabulous dog.
Millie (Medical Hold)Millie (short for Milagro = miracle in Spanish) is an older gal, (estimated 10-12) and is very spry and playful with other Shelties. Millie has been through a lot recently and deserves a loving home. Do you have room in your home and your heart?
Little Interlopers include dogs that’ve come into our system through various contacts, usually RMCSR volunteers. Although not full Collies or Shelties, they’re adorable and will be cared for until we find their forever home.
Remington (Not Available Yet)
Remington (Not Available Yet)Remington is a work in progress. This little Sheltie mix had the odds stacked against him and had nowhere else to go. He was isolated and poorly socialized with humans (but now thinks that some people may be all right). He was morbidly obese at 49.9# and couldn't even get himself to a standing position without help. Remi came into the world as a darling little mixed breed puppy that should have been treated with respect and good care. Instead he was left outside, without companionship, to grow into an almost feral dog. It is heartwarming to see how he's learning to trust. He must think humans have some redeeming value because he has not given up on us. Even though his owners gave up on him.
JasperJasper is a playful, energetic companion who will steal your heart away.
Other Possible Adoptees
Although the collies and shelties displayed above are the only ones currently available for adoption, we also have a variety of others that aren’t quite ready for placement. These include special needs babies that take a bit more work to get them ready for forever homes, new arrivals that we just don’t have enough contact and history with to place, as well as the occasional interloper that lands in our laps for adoption and can’t be disguised as a collie or a sheltie.
Please use the links below to check out any other babies we are working with that may be a good fit for your home. We’re confident they have a home with someone who finds there way to these treasures…

After Rescue, Adoption into forever homes is our never ending focus and goal. All dogs deserve to have a loving and caring forever home. We venture far and wide to find the best homes and families for our dogs.
Are you looking for your forever dog? We have Collies and Shelties living with foster families right now waiting for their forever families to come for them.
It’s simple. Fosters save lives. In 2014 we saved 94 beautiful, at risk Collies and Shelties who are now cherished family members, thanks to fosters.
Volunteers are the heart of our organization and a key reason why we’re able to care for so many collies and shelties throughout the year.
From foster families to dog walkers, transporters and more… we need you!
