Wrangler (aka the Collie Llama)


7 year old mahogany and sable male







New to Rescue!

If a collie barks in the forest and no sheep hear him, does he make a sound?

Learn the answer to this question and other bits of wisdom by consulting Wrangler, the Collie Llama.  Wrangler's foster dad calls him that, not only because he is a wise collie, but because his long, thin neck makes him look a little like a llama.  Wrangler is a seven year old, neutered, mahogany and sable male.  He was surrendered by his family because they didn't have time for him, and he eventually made his way to MWCR.

Wrangler has lived his entire life outdoors and is definitely more comfortable outside than in the house.  His foster family says he likes to spend time in a large, insulated garage that has a sofa and chair and an attached, outdoor run.  He is fully housebroken, however, and has had no accidents since coming to his foster home.

Wrangler is a playful, active collie who gets along well with other dogs and is friendly and well behaved with everyone he meets.  He is interested in but not aggressive with cats, though he does chase squirrels and rabbits and has a reported history of killing chickens.  He generally walks well on a leash, except when tempted by a squirrel.  He rides well in cars and likes to sit in the passenger seat and sleep with his head on the driver.

Wrangler is looking for a forever home that will, ideally, include a fenced yard and a family that will help him acclimate to an indoor lifestyle.  He is an energetic boy who wants to please and would benefit from obedience training.  Wrangler has lots of love to share with his new family and is ready to be someone’s new, collie pal.

Wrangler is being fostered in Fergus Falls, Minnesota.
