Description: Randee is the poster child for the joys of adopting an adult dog rather than a puppy. At seven years old, Randee has evolved into a sweet, loving, well mannered, young canine. He is playful, without being hyper; he chews doggy toys, not your shoes; he is flawlessly housetrained; he doesn’t jump on the furniture; he loves to be brushed; he walks well on a leash; he’s, well…perfect!

Randee was surrendered to a shelter because his family could no longer care for him. Later, he was transferred to MWCR. As you can see from his photo, it was necessary to shave down his coat to remove the mats, so he currently looks more like a really big lamb than a stately, rough coated collie. But hey, fur grows! In no time at all he will once again be the handsome, elegant collie that he was meant to be.

Randee is a quiet, laid-back boy who gets along with everyone he meets. When he first encounters a stranger, he gives them a sniff or two and then bounds off to bring them a toy to play with. He is extremely friendly and likes to play with the neighborhood dogs and children. Because of his size (he weighs 99 pounds), he would probably do best with a family that has children over the age of 5. Although he loves kids, he could accidentally knock over a toddler. Randee is also very good with cats and likes to play and even sleep with the cat at his foster home.

Randee is looking for a forever home that has a fenced yard, since he does get excited by bicycles and kids on skateboards. His foster mom has been taking him for regular walks to help him shed a few unwanted pounds, and he will need his forever family to continue his weight loss program. Otherwise, this loving collie boy would do well in almost any environment. If you are looking for a collie that doesn’t need a lot of work, training and maintenance, Randee is your boy. Just add love.

And don’t forget, I need a new foster home!
