This good-looking guy is Monroe, a 3 year-old Collie mix male who found himself homeless at a rural county dog shelter along with his brother Magic. We don’t know whether they were strays or owner surrenders but both made the trip to Canine Lifeline so they could take their time finding permanent new homes. We didn’t realize until they arrived here with us that Monroe and Magic do NOT like each other. Needless to say, they will not be adopted to the same home. Monroe can also be particular about his other dog friends but is a bit more mellow meeting other dogs than his brother Magic. Even so, Monroe would likely do best as the only dog in the home so he could enjoy all the attention from his humans. He has had excellent crate manners in his foster home so should be able to pick up the house rules quickly in his new home. Monroe is still trying to figure out the whole leash walking experience. He tends to try to stay as close as possible to the person walking him so has a tendency to get twisted and tangled around their legs. Monroe also likes to flop over for a belly rub frequently so it makes walking him a bit of a challenge  at this point. We’re sure he’ll improve in this area as he gains more experience. Monroe is very friendly with people and is sure to blossom and be a much more confident dog under the patient and loving care of his new family. Monroe weighs about 44 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
