There is a woman in my area who does dog rescue - any type of dog, any age (but mostly young adults and puppies). Just recently, she received a litter of four collie pups. I went to see them, and they are definitely collies, though one solid-brown black masked pup hints that there might be "something" else in there. They have more of the "old-fashioned" collie look - large eyes, broad muzzles. Pup 1- the brown one, male. Pup 2- another male, this one is light sable with a white muzzle, very shy - he will wag close to you but jump away before he can be touched. Pup 3- a female, also shy but not as much as the male. Keeps her ears laid back but will approach. Pup 4- female, this one has a full blaze edged in black, and black freckles on her muzzle. She looks like she will have prick ears. Very friendly and outgoing. They are about 8-9 weeks old, with thick fur, perhaps 8 pounds each (but a little fat). Their behavior and play styles are very stereotypical collie - just like a litter of baby Bonnies! Speaking of which, they loved her. All four of the little ones surrounded her and followed her around the yard. They are not afraid of other dogs at all, very nice dog manners. There are pictures on http://www.allbreed.org that do not do these guys justice- they are way cuter than their pics. I'm going to "take over" the shy male if I can, try to get him out and socialize him. The rescuer isn't really happy about long-distance adoptions, any homes would need to be in the MD area. OTOH, if I can convince her, I'm willing to drive any distance (within reason). Jana & Bonnie ________________________________________________________________ YOU'RE PAYING TOO MUCH FOR THE INTERNET!
