Colin is a super sweet and smart Scottie lad of about five years old. He went through rough times, and was in bad shape when the West Texas Scottie Rescue ladies picked him up from a shelter in Southeastern New Mexico. About five years old, Colin had two types of tick fever, an eye infection, tape worms, severely infected ears, and non-malignant growths in his left ear. You can see from his “before” picture that he needed help badly. WTSR neutered him, brought his shots up to date, gave him a dental, killed the tapeworms, treated his ear and eye infections, and removed growths from his left ear. They also resolved his tick fever and implanted a HomeAgain microchip. In other words, Colin had the “works”. That’s what adopters can count on from Texas Scottie Rescue! See what a handsome guy Colin turned into from his “after” picture.
Colin needed extended foster care. He was fostered in San Angelo, and was very happy playing with the resident Scotties and even liked cats! A leash? He didn’t know what one was when rescued, but learned that lesson well. He surely did love, love, love toys from the beginning though, and snuggling in a lap. Colin learned so much, including house manners and how to use a doggie door. Colin’s downside was his talent as an accomplished escape artist. Libby and Ed curbed his escape career! In the end, Libby, one of the WTSR coordinators, and husband Ed, became so attached to Colin after his long stay with them for rehab and training that they just couldn’t part with him. By Summer 2013, Colin called San Angelo home, and Ed and Libby his very own humans . Congratulations, Colin. You hit the jackpot! (Colin was first posted on TSRF for adoption on Jan. 29, 2013.)
