~ Collin 08 ~

 

 
  Collin had the misfortune of being picked up off the streets by animal control and put in 'jail'.  But perhaps it was a blessing in disguise that he was saved from the dangers of the streets.

Because he had a bloody nose and skin irritation, the shelter asked us to rescue Collin, as he was deemed unadoptable, and at high risk of euthanasia.

As it would turn out, Collin's bloody nose was actually caused by his own actions.  When he was fed, instead of eating the food he was offered, he would turn the bowl over, and begin to hide the food under his bedding.  As he manipulated his food to hide it, he would open a wound on the tip of his nose, which was causing the bleeding.  No doubt he did this because of his days on the street, when he wasn't getting enough food.  His instincts told him to save some food for later, which is what he was doing.  He visited our vet, who prescribed some antibiotic cream for the wound on his nose, and then we attached his food bowl to the side of a large kennel, so when he ate, he couldn't tip the bowl over and hide the food.  It only took a few days, for the healing to begin!  And now, Collin is able to eat from a normal food bowl, without turning it over.  Success!

Collin has to be one of the sweetest Scots we've ever had in our rescue.  He's a quiet boy, but loves to be petted and have playtime.  He does well with other Scotties and Westies.  And then there are those eyes!  Those loving eyes!

We believe Collin is 5 - 7 years of age.  Thanks to the liquid vitamins and premium dog food we've been feeding him, his coat has returned to all its' glory.  He's handsome again!

All dogs adopted by Scottie Kingdom Rescue, Inc. have had a full medical exam by one of our licensed Veterinarians, which includes testing (and treatment, if necessary) for Heartworm disease, Lyme disease, Ehrlichia and Anaplasmosis, all necessary vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery, dental cleaning as necessary, microchipping, registration of the microchip, and any other medical needs each particular dog may need.  Because we want to assure you of the health of our adoptable pets, we include a pre-paid 30 day health insurance policy with each adoption.  Copies of all available medical records are transferred to you when the adoption is finalized.

We prefer to adopt to families with past Scottie, Westie, Terrier (or similar) experience, but realize this isnít always possible. We do not ship our pets. If you have that special place in your heart, and in your home, for a Scottie (or any of our other available rescue dogs), please visit us in Dallas for an in person meet & greet session with our available dogs.  If you have existing dogs, they must travel to Dallas with you, so we can be assured that they will be compatible with the new addition to your family.

Please contact us at Rescue@scottiekingdom.com  to receive an Adoption Application or for more information on our Adoption process.  Also, please take the time to visit our website www.scottiekingdom.com for additional information.

We sometimes receive several applications on the same dog. Our goal is to place the dog in the best home possible, based on his/her needs, personality and past history. Please note:  Adoptions are not done on a first come, first served basis.  Submitting an application does not guarantee the adoption of any dog.   We are looking for the best available home for each of our rescue dogs.

Thank you for your understanding, and for considering adoption!
