Susan Daffron talks to Rebecca White from the Collie Rescue League of New England about a 6-year old smooth-coated collie named Jake who came into rescue because of a divorce in his family. Most people are more familiar with rough-coated collies, which have long hair like the TV star Lassie. Smooth-coated collies like Jake have the same pretty collie coloring and markings; they just have a shorter coat. Rebecca says that Jake has a typical collie personality which means he's a bit of a "velcro dog" who loves to be wherever his humans are. .

Because he loves people, he'd do best in a home where his family isn't gone all day. Jakes gets along with other dogs and cats and he loves kids. He particularly enjoys having his hindquarters scratched and will reward you with a little dance Susan calls the "butt scritch stomp." Although Jake can be a bit cautious about trying new things sometimes, he loves to play with his toys, romp around the yard, ride in the car, and go for walks. Jake knows a few obedience commands already, but like most dogs, he will bond even more strongly to his new family if they are willing to take him to a training class. If you love collies, check out this sweet, beautiful boy!
