alfie

Rocket – (was Alfie 2) came to us from the hill country.  He had been living outside and was never allowed in the house.  Rocket is a 2 year old tri-colored mini-aussie mix,  He stands about 14.5 inches tall and weighs around 13 pounds (needs to add 1 to 2 pounds).  He is up to date on all his vaccinations, heartworm negative, on heartworm preventive and neutered.  Since Rocket had always lived outside he is not housetrained but he is working hard to learn the outside is for elimination and not the inside.  He is leash trained and loves to take walks, so many new things to smell.  Rocket is a very athletic dog, loves to jump and run, and loves to play with toys.  He gets along really well with other dogs.  He’s a little shy with adults but small children become his immediate friends.  Alfie would also do well in a performance home, as he is very easily trained and he loves to learn.

Adopted July 2015.

Goldie – Goldie is one of many collies that were rescued by Houston Collie Rescue from a hoarding situation, ASR volunteered to help out with a few of them. Goldie is 5 years old and is a female sable and white smooth collie. She is up to date on all vaccinations but is heartworm positive and will have to go thru treatment. She is a bit malnourished at 39 pounds so we are helping her gain a few pounds. Goldie also has some eye problems which we will have checked out by an optometrist. Goldie will be available for adoption after she is spayed, gone thru heartworm treatment and had her eyes checked. Goldie is relearning her house manners and working on housetraining and leash walking. She is a soft and gentle collie with a lot of love to give.

Update:  Goldie has completed her heartworm treatment and has started to play with the resident shelties.  We will give her a few weeks and then we will set up an appointment with the ophthalmologist t to do some eyelid surgery.  Goldie’s eyelashes grow inward and cause her serious discomfort.  The surgery will relieve this discomfort. 

Goldie to LOVES to play with resident dogs and any visitors.  She also loves rawhide chewies. Goldie is completely house trained and knows how to use a doggie door.  Goldie also likes toys and stuffed animals.  She is very affectionate and loves you back by nibbling!  She now weighs 54 lbs.  Goldie is very good at the groomers, with baths, nails being ground and drying.  She sleeps in a closed crate with a bed at night.  Goldie also walks well on a leash.

Edie – Edie was a foundling in San Antonio. Everyone tried to find her owner with on-line ads, signs, and notices on electronic billboards. She was not microchipped so we had no way to track her back to an owner or vet clinic. Edie is about 5 or 6 years old, she has been recently spayed and is up to date on all her vaccinations. She has been tested for heartworms and the test came back negative, she is also on heartworm preventive. Edie is about 16 inches tall and weighs 38 pounds, she has already started on the green bean diet to get some of that weight off. Edie is very sweet, she gets along with everyone, including small, dog wise children.
