Meet Gertie! She is a 7 week old border colllie mix puppy who is a tiny little thing. She is the one of the largest of the litter, is active and loves to hear her voice. She is a talker! Gertie is the most dominant of the group of puppies and clearly is the leader of this tiny pack. She is smart, confident, playful and happy. Gertie and her littermates and mama are being fostered in Central Illinois

Mama is a Collie/Spaniel mix, and daddy is a mystery but they are tiny and will be small to medium sized when grown. Mama weighs 27 lbs but is underweight. to be first to meet them when they arrive!

All puppies are spayed/neutered, microchipped, have first 1-2 sets of shots (depending on age at adoption), are fecal tested and dewormed, have flea/heartworm preventative given prior to adoption and come home with a collar and 2 meals of food.

Puppies under 6 months are required to have human contact at least every 4 hours to avoid developing separation anxiety. All dogs from our rescue must be inside dogs. They must be leashed or in a fenced yard if outside. All of your current dogs must be up to date on vaccines, spayed or neutered if over 6 months, and on heart-worm preventative year round unless you live in Northern US states where it is not required. (Unless your veterinarian will verify a medical reason for you not to do so) Transport can be arranged for a fee anywhere in the USA and Canada. You are required to have a home visit prior to adoption. We can arrange for a volunteer in your area to do this.
