Border Collie Puppy Up for Adoption – Colorado!

This is Oreo — the border collie puppy who went missing for 8 days in our canyon recently. She is currently being fostered by one of our neighbors and is up for adoption from Charlie’s Place Shelter in Dumont, Colorado.

I got to meet her in person today (May 25, 2012), and she is awesome. Honestly, I’d adopt her in a second, if the timing were right or we didn’t already have 2 dogs (our limit).

Please help us create a social media blitz so that Oreo can find her forever home! Video with photos and a clip of her playing fetch below.

Oreo says, "Adopt me. Won't you?"

And, yes, she looks just like Lilly – the canine heroine of our dog blog Champion of My Heart.

Oreo is adorable!

I hope that things have been getting better for you after the rough month you’ve had. You’ve been in my thoughts. ((hugs))

Oh, I wish the timing were right for me, too. In two years when my daughter leaves for college I plan to get a second dog, but can’t manage it now. I’ll spread the word!
