Colin (TheCollie) arrived at Dawn & Dusk as a foster dog for Les Amis des Animaux, after months of wandering in our area.
It appears his owners died and Colin was abandoned or just wandered off and nobody cared enough to look for him. He was in a terrible state when he arrived, weighed only 12 kgs, had a bad skin infection and was very lethargic. He soon gained weight and turned out to be a very beautiful Collie, but he has a few serious health issues; deafness, severe hip dysplasia and a heart problem. Since he seemed to love life at D & D, and he will never be able to lead the active life a young-ish (he is estimated to be around 8 years old) Border Collie should have, we decided to adopt him so he can lead a quiet life with us. He is a lovely boy, gets along with everybody and is very popular with our volunteers!
