Description: As welcome as the flowers in spring, thatís our girl May. This pretty sweetheart is mostly sable and white, with just a touch of blue merle around her face and a hint of blue in her eyes. And she is every bit as sweet natured and gentle as she is lovely. She is a small collie, though the pictures make her look larger, and she does need to lose a few pounds to reach her ideal weight. She was just diagnosed with hypothyroidism, which explains why she is a little plump, and she is now on an inexpensive medication that will control the condition and should help her to lose weight. Once her thyroid levels are normal, May will probably become a bit more active, though she will always be a gentle, calm girl.

May is house trained and extremely well behaved. She gets along beautifully with everyone, including the other dogs, and likes to engage in gentle, non-aggressive play. She has no trouble with the three or four steps leading in and out of her foster home, though she wonít do the long flights of stairs to the second level or to the basement. May was debarked by a previous owner, so she is a silent girl.

May has become very comfortable in her foster home and has even learned to sneak in and usurp her collie foster brotherís favorite bed. She loves to be petted and talked to and happily wags her tail to show her pleasure.

May is a loving, gentle soul who is looking for a forever family who will care for her and cherish her. She should probably have a fenced yard, since she came to MWCR from a shelter after having been found as a stray. She shows no interest in chasing and would probably do well with cats (though there are no cats at her foster home). She does like other, non-aggressive dogs and would get along well with kind children. May will bring the sweetness of spring into the lives of the lucky family who adopts her.
