A ray of sunshine & sweetness is what this sable &
white 3 year old Collie boy is all about. He has a
wonderful temperament and is extremely well behaved.
Casey is fully vetted and has the ultimate in Collie
personality. He loves to be by your side, is
friendly with cats, other dogs and every person he
greets. He is very social, quiet and well mannered.
He was surrendered by his owners as they no longer
had time for him. Casey is a large boned Collie and
was very overweight due to lack of exercise. He has
lost more than 17 lbs. since he came into rescue and is
very close to an ideal
weight of 80 lbs. He is doing exceptionally
well on his weight control program.
Casey will always be considered as a ‘Special
Needs’ Collie. He has been diagnosed with
severe left hip dysplasia. He is currently
undergoing acupuncture treatments to lessen his
pain. This will be a short-term regimen and
then he will only need acupuncture treatments on a
periodical basis. Casey has also been diagnosed as having
Hypothyroidism which is being treated with
medication. This medicine is only about $8/month but will
be required on a daily basis.
Casey is doing very well in his foster home and is
much more active due to his acupuncture treatments, thyroid
medication, 3 Collie friends, 2 cats, and the love and
attention he gets from everyone he meets.
Casey's thyroid medication is stabilized and doesn't
have to be retested for 6 months.
This is Casey at a full gallop, running to meet his
foster mommy when she came home from work.
After acupuncture treatments Casey is enjoying his
play time like all Collies do... He was never
able to run like this before! He is now 3
months between acupuncture treatments!
