Dogs Fostered at All American Dog School 2010-2011

Petey
Petey, adopted Feb 2010. Petey is a dog on a mission. Big and brawny, Petey was getting into trouble at Callithea Farm where he was being fostered, so he came to All American Dog to work out some of his puppy enthusiasm and energy. Petey spent the winter here and survived the big blizzard of February 2010 only to find a great new home soon after.

Woof
Woof, adopted June 2010. When Woof Wolf was given up to Collie Rescue because of some pending aggression issues, we knew we couldn’t keep his original name. So we shortened it to Woof and worked with him a bit on his issues. Woof didn’t need a lot of work because he was as sweet as any other collie, so he soon found a great home. Woof sometimes shows up at the Collie Reunion Picnic and gives his foster mom big kisses like the old days

Chloe
Chloe, adopted Sept 2010. Chloe and Wiley are two cockapoos who were given up by their family when he was 10 and she was 8. After 7 months at All American Dog, they were adopted together by a family in Virginia

Wylie
Wylie, adopted Sept 2010. Chloe and Wiley are two cockapoos who were given up by their family when he was 10 and she was 8. After 7 months at All American Dog, they were adopted together by a family in Virginia

Thistle
Thistle, adopted March 2011. Lovely Thistle was turned into the shelter as a 6 month old puppy, and was lucky to land at All American Dog School for her foster home. Within a few days, we learned that she had a genetic disease that would cause continued failure of her eyesight, and that she would end up totally blind. Thistle needed a special home with a super committed family, but in the meantime, she got specialized training to give her a head start on her encroaching blindness. Finally, a family found Thistle, and they drove to Potomac, MD from Wisconsin to pick her up and bring her home. Her new family had 3 other dogs already, 2 of whom were collies who became her ‘seeing eye dogs.’ Thistle was renamed Mollie and she is Miss January in the 2012 Collie Rescue calendar.

Bailey
Bailey, adopted Aug 2011. Bailey is a beautiful young collie who was turned into Collie Rescue when his family couldn’t keep a dog anymore. He loves to snuggle up with his human pals on couches and other comfy perches. Bailey found a great new home in Gaithersburg.

Evie
Evie, adopted April 2010. Evie is a border collie mix who was given up by her family at age 6 months when she turned a bit nasty. She stayed at All American Dog for over 5 months to smooth out the kinks, and then found a great home with a young couple and their male hound, Goose.

Kelly
Kelly, adopted Aug 2010. Kelly is a beautiful female collie, who was only 7 months old when she arrived at All American Dog. Full of energy and spirit, she found a new home fast, and loves to show up at the annual Collie Rescue Picnic with her family.

Wylie
Wylie, adopted Sept 2010. Chloe and Wiley are two cockapoos who were given up by their family when he was 10 and she was 8. After 7 months at All American Dog, they were adopted together by a family in Virginia

Dillon
Dillon, adopted Sept 2010. Dillon is a young lab mix, sweet as can be, who found a great new home with young kids to be his new best buddies.

Lizzie
Lizzie, adopted Oct 2010. Lizzie is another young female collie, who was cute enough to be selected as the Covergirl for Collie Rescue’s 2011 calendar. Before she turned a year old, Lizzie was adopted by a family whose other pet was a potbellied pig. Lizzie is another girl who loves to attend the Collie Rescue Picnic and observe the sheep herding demonstrations.

Piper
Piper, adopted May 2011. Yet another lovely young collie girl, Piper needed to learn how to settle down before finding a new home. When she arrived, she was matted and very underweight, and paced or ran in circles non-stop if allowed. Piper got a good dose of structured exercise and training over a five-week period which helped her calm down and she was adopted by a family who could accommodate her exercise requirements.

Sammy
Sammy, adopted June 2011. Sammy came to be fostered by All American Dog School after he showed significant dog aggression in his foster home, making him a poor adoption candidate. He spent 6 weeks under a strong leadership program, and managed to learn how to socialize with Rotties and Chihuahuas. He knew how to turn on the charm for human visitors, and was adopted by a family with kids just as summer began.
