Young Female Collie / Mixed
This pet is no longer available for adoption.
Update, November 21, 2006
Cassie is now a healthy 41 lbs, and is going through the puppyhood she never had, and is going to her new home within the next few weeks.
We cannot thank everyone enough for helping Husky House with the care of these two amazing dogs, with special thanks going to Karen Cassel of the Northern NJ Collie Rescue and Referal, who went above and beyond getting their story out to the Collie community, who supported them every step of the way!

Meet Cassie, a stunning sable, rough coated Collie, who along with her brother Duke, is the victim of incredibly cruel people. She and her brother Duke were purchased in a petstore, only to be starved nearly to death. Our Collie twins came to us because one of our Husky House volunteers intercepted them, before it was too late to save them. Cassie was dying when we got her, weighing a skeletal 18 lbs., but thanks to the wonderful vet and technicians at the West Caldwell Emergency Center, she was stabilized and saved from an awful, painful death.
Duke and Cassies medical bills will be over a thousand dollars by the time we get them healthy, and we are in desperate need of donations for their care. Please consider helping out these two beautiful dogs in their time of need, even a little bit will help!
Cassie will not be ready to go to her new home for quite a few weeks, as she only weighs 18 lbs. at this time (female Collies should be approximately 50-60 lbs.), so we are only accepting applications at this time. She is heartworm negative, and will have bloodwork done to insure that there will be no long term damage done from the emaciation. Cassie will be spayed and microchipped prior to adoption. We would prefer that potential adopters have some experience with the breed. Cass has a lovely, sweet temperament, and even when she couldn't lift her head, she attempted to wag her tail. She is currently in foster care with three kids, two dogs and several cats.
