We got dooley when I was 8. He was a rambunctious puppy, always getting into trouble. My mom had to give him away because the golfers kept complaining about him trying to herd them. So when he was about a year we gave him to a family with three kids and quite a bit of land. I could tell the wife didn't really like him but the husband and the kids adored him. Four years later my mom decided to let me have another puppy. We went all over Georgia in search of my new puppy but non of them just felt right (I love all dogs and usally would have chosen any puppy). We went to our local PetsMart to see if there were any new puppies for adoption one saturday and while walking out I saw Dooley walking in. I ran over and kneelt down beside him. The lady that had him said that she had found him in the local pound and he had actualy been there a month! None on the workers wanted to put him down so she was called to pick him up and move him to a rescue group up north, but the dog she was fostering had been with her for about two months and she decided to send her dog up north insted of Dooley. Both my mom and I thought it was fate that led us to run into Dooley that day so we re-adopted him and he has been with us for a wonderful six years now. Now I am 19 and in collage. I miss him very much but I do go to see him every weekend.

It was fate! He looks very happy and I am so glad you found him a second time!! Give him lots of hugs and kisses from Sadie (another BC mix!) and me the next time you get to see him!! He is a very handsome boy.....

Wow! What a story, so glad you got your Dooley back. That is a true love story and I'll bet Dooley was glad to see you. Too bad the other family didn't contact you first to see if you wanted him back! How awful to send a dog to the pound! They just don't understand why they have been abandoned!

Oh, what a wonderful story. Dooley looks like he has some golden retriever in him, too, but he has the herding instincts of a collie allright. He's beautiful and I'm so glad you have him back.
