WHY I ADOPTED

I have had the privileged to foster a number of dogs for DFW Collie Rescue and life has never been the same since! I became an accidental foster collie guardian after the sudden and untimely death of our beautiful Claire. Carolyn has a knack for knowing when a broken heart needs to be filled with Collie love and asked me to foster one of her senior girls, Lassie. Well, it was a buy one get one free day because as Lassie was getting into the car Carolyn’s long-term resident Bonnie decided to come along too. Carolyn was convinced that Bonnie would only go visit for a couple of days, but as it turned out both Lassie and Bonnie spent the remainder of their days with us and hold a very special place in our hearts.
