Scout's Story

Wednesday, July 4, 2012 1:05:25 PM America/Chicago

We recently picked up Scout as our new foster dog through Collie Rescue of Greater Illinois. Scout is a purebred rough coat Collie that was rescued as a stray covered with over 80 ticks! Yuck! If that isn't a reminder to Frontline your dogs, I don't know what is! He had to be shaved down to make sure all the ticks were removed properly, but he doesn't mind. He's just thrilled to be living inside, loved and cared for again! Sadly, he did contract Lyme Disease from the ticks so he is beginning treatment.

Scout is a handsome and well-behaved fella. He minds his manners and believes very strongly in getting along with everyone. It has been wonderful to see him make fast friends with our two dogs (Gerry and Fletcher) as well as our two other foster dogs (little Chihuahuas). He is a very sweet and gentle dog.

Lucky him, a family has already fallen head over heels for our buzz-cut boy and he will be getting officially adopted very soon! In the meantime, he is relaxing and recuperating...

Zack, the Rescued Beagle

Monday, November 14, 2011 11:58:21 AM America/Chicago

Zack gets a new collar

Zack was dropped off at an animal control after his family said they lost their house and could no longer care for him. Poor guy has been a wreck since losing the only family he ever knew and has been very sad and mournfully howls when we have to leave him at home alone. We took Zack in as a foster dog and he has been enjoying his new friends (the Pink Puppy spokesdogs, Gerry and Fletcher), but he still hasn't settled in 100% and longs for a new forever family to call his own.

Shortly after arriving here, Zack picked out his new martingale collar and is very pleased with his choice. He picked the Red Hearts Buckle Martingale Dog Collar. He loves showing it off to people he meets and hope a new family sees how cute he looks and falls in love with him.

Zack is currently available for adoption through Animal Education and Rescue based out of Libertyville, IL. If you have questions about Zack or are interested in adopting him, please contact us

Macy, a Stray No More

Monday, August 30, 2010 3:01:35 PM America/Chicago


Macy is a 2 year old hound/terrier mix (some thought she might be part PBGV). She was picked up by animal control as a stray (no collar, microchip or any other ID) and, of course, no one claimed her.

I took her in as a foster and she picked out a new Vintage Pink Martingale Collar (with a buckle) complete with ID tag and was later microchipped for safe keeping. I meant to post her online last week, but before I had a chance she was adopted! So, congratulations little Macy. We wish you all the best in your new forever home and know you will never be a forgotten "stray" again.

Ronnie's Collars

Wednesday, August 25, 2010 11:10:20 AM America/Chicago

Chewing on Tree Bark

Ronnie was original bought by a family and was supposed to be for their children. After a few months the parents brought Ronnie to the shelter because the kids weren't taking care of him and the parents didn't want to be responsible for his care. It's a shame Ronnie had to find such crummy family to spend his first few months with, but he's ready to find a new one that will love him for the rest of his life.

One of the first things that any new foster dog of mine gets is a new collar (not a big surprise, I'm sure). Most of my fosters come to me with no collar at all or one that is too worn or ill fitting. Ronnie turned out to be a great "Collar Model" and enjoys trying them on and showing off just how cute he looks in them. Below are of Ronnie showing off a couple of his favorites...

Kramer Overcomes Shyness

Monday, May 17, 2010 10:25:55 AM America/Chicago

1st day at my house

My newest foster came to me completely traumatized. He had just been given up by his owner and had little to no socialization with people other than his owners. The poor guy was given up by his family because they were going through a divorce and said they no longer had time for him. He doesn't understand why they won't come back for him.

When I first took him in, Kramer was so terrified that he wouldn't let me touch him. He would give me the "Evil Eye" and even snap to scare me away if my hand came too close. It took many hours of quietly sitting with him, using slip leashes to get him out of his crate and out to go potty and only feeding him if he ate it from my hand (which he did begrudgingly). However, after a week he had transformed and we finally developed a strong level of trust with each other.

Kramer is now a completely different dog. He gets so excited when he sees me come home from work and loves getting belly rubs. It's amazing what a little patienc...

Meet Junior, a Collie Puppy

Wednesday, April 28, 2010 10:41:57 AM America/Chicago


Junior is an 8 week old purebred rough coated Collie puppy that I am fostering through Collie Rescue of Greater IL. Here is his bio from CRGI...

Congratulations! Now that you've seen Junior's photo, you have officially seen just about the cutest thing EVER! Take a minute to recover, because this was a once-in-a-lifetime moment.

Junior probably wouldn't appreciate us calling him 'cute', so you may want to use another word when you meet him. Junior is all boy, all the time, and he thinks 'cute' is for sissies. This confident little guy marches through life with his head up and his chest out, and if he had a back pocket it would be filled with string, a shiny rock and a sling shot. He's got stuff to do, and he needs to go get started! Like all puppies, Junior is learning about housebreaking, sleeping in a crate, and how to walk on a leash. He is also busy learning about squeakie toys, sticks in the yard, what does that flower taste like and can he chew on this? There is just so much to know...

Meet Lexie, a Collie Puppy

Wednesday, April 28, 2010 10:35:42 AM America/Chicago

Lexie's New Collar

Lexie is an 8 week old purebred smooth coated Collie puppy that I am fostering through Collie Rescue of Greater IL. Here is her bio from CRGI...

Strange things happen when you see a puppy for the first time. Your eyebrows wrinkle together & upwards, a big smile stretches across your face, your shoulders go down and your hands stretch out. An involuntary 'Ohhhhh! Look at the baby!' raises up from your heart and escapes your lips and your can't wait to pick that little bundle up and snorgle her neck.

Lexi is a puppy who carries a Level 10 Cuteness Alert - so be prepared for all of the above when you see her. We'll even warn you about the possibility of a Level 11 knee-melt and maybe even a Level 12 Cuddle Attack - this is one little girl who will wiggle her way straight into your arms and your heart.

Now, Lexi is NOT a fluffy ball of fur, and never will be. She is a smooth collie, and is one of the prettiest we've ever seen. She is an elegant little girl who will blossom into a sleek, lovely aristocrat of the collie world. Smoothies have beautiful movement, are very smart and extremely affectionate - and people who have them are often hooked for life! Add the fact that her lovely tri-coat will gleam like ebony and require much less maintenance than a rough, and well, what more could you ask?

Lexi's days are busy doing puppy stuff - playing with toys, learning about housebreaking, and walking on a leash, so your summer will be filled with fun as you guide her through her growing months. Every day will be exciting as you watch her grow and learn, and she will have a special place in your heart forever - puppies are like that! We strongly recommend that Lexi attend Puppy School when she is old enough - not only for the bonding it will produce between you, or the education she needs to be a canine good citizen, but because Lexi is blind in one eye. Lexi's left retina was detached at birth, so she doesn't know any other way to see, but training class will help her be confident of your guidance, and help her learn to move freely through life. Lexi's right eye is normal, and you'd have to watch closely to notice that she sees from only one eye, but you should be aware that sometimes she might be surprised by movements on her left.

Puppies are always little jewels in the Collie Rescue treasure chest, and Lexi is certainly one of our sparkling best. A bundle of darling in the beginning, and an elegant lady to share your life - we envy the family who adopts our little Lexi - will it be you?

(Lexie is a wearing a Hot Pink Prep Martingale Dog collar)

The Rescued Collie Puppies Arrive

Saturday, April 24, 2010 10:51:33 AM America/Chicago

Yummm... dirt!

My two newest fosters arrived a couple days ago from the Collie Rescue of Greater IL. They are two adorable bundles of fur (i.e. 8 week old collie puppies). Junior (rough coat) and Lexie (smooth coat) were originally purchased from a breeder. After the owner found out they each had a detached retina (which means they are blind in one eye) they didn't want them anymore. That's when Collie Rescue swooped in, saved them, and is now looking for new homes for them who will love them the way they are.

Despite each being blind in one eye, it doesn't phase them a bit. In fact, you'd probably never even notice. They are just a couple of happy-go-lucky pups without a care in the world.

Junior is a typical boy... running and romping and getting dirty is the name of the game. He is outgoing, bold and very adorable. His blue merle markings are just stunning and he often has a lot to say.

Lexie is a tri-color Smooth Coat Collie. She has a rather submissive personality and lets her brother take...

Izzy Goes Home

Tuesday, April 20, 2010 11:28:27 AM America/Chicago

Izzy Gets Adopted

Izzy has been adopted! Her new family picked her up and she even had a furry Beagle brother waiting for her when she got home (who was also a former foster dog of mine).

Her family reports... "She and Harley hit it off better than we expected. He actually got all excited and wanted to play with her in the yard... She is currently sucking on his Kong. But that is only fair -- he jumped right on the new mat we got for her and tried to chew her big Nylabone. Nothing is sacred here! She is doing better than he did on his first day with us. Within about 10 minutes of being in the house -- he peed on my nice oriental rug. She hasn't had an accident yet. We are all going to head to bed early as it has been quite an exciting day."

Congratulations, Izzy! I will certainly miss her, but she is a very lucky girl and found an amazing family to call her own.

Heartworm Positive

Friday, April 2, 2010 11:10:19 AM America/Chicago


After rescuing Izzy (my current foster dog) from living chained outside and neglected, she unfortunately tested positive for Heartworm. It's a tragic blow, but is treatable as long as we caught it quickly enough. Only time will tell.

For the last few weeks Izzy has been waiting. There is currently a shortage of Heartworm medication and we have anxiously been awaiting her name to come up on the waiting list. Today we got the call and she has her first treatment scheduled for Monday, April 5th.

She has a long battle ahead of her. It starts on Monday with an injection into her lower back and the whole process will take a minimum of 2 months. The treatment is often quite painful and is uncomfortable for some time after. Her activity level will need to be very restricted. If she gets too excited and active, it can increase the risk of the dead heartworms moving through her system which can clog the arteries creating very serious complications in her heart and lungs. Then, after four ...
