We discovered Riley (formerly Duff) with Golden Bond Rescue in October after our cousin highly recommended them. We had lost our beautiful beloved Collie, Zoey, in April. There was such an empty space in our hearts, but Riley definitely filled it! The volunteers at GBR were wonderful and the process went smoothly.

We picked him up in November from his foster home where he was loved, trained, and cared for extremely well.

True to Collie personality, he is loyal and loving, easy to please, empathetic, gentle and very social.

He loves other neighbor dogs and he gets along very well with our cat.

Training is going well, especially considering he’s still under a year.

His vet visits went well and determined he is very healthy. His birthday is February 20th, he is about 60lbs.


Our hearts are full, we love him so much, and he is such a wonderful boy. He’s lovable, goofy and playful.

Riley has two other brothers available through GBR named Clarke and Angus, who are looking for their fur-ever homes!

If they are anything like Riley, and you’re lucky enough to adopt one, you’ll have the dog of your dreams❤


Katie, Sean, Heather,

Ringo and Riley!




This little cutie, Duff (#3738), came in September 7 from South Korea.   His foster mother described him as “a one in a million dog.”   He’s very sweet, and mellow.  He’s doing great with all the dogs and the cats in his foster home.   He’s about 95% potty-trained.   He sleeps through the night fine in his crate in the master bedroom.   He does not like to be left alone in his crate and will howl if  he can’t see someone.   Duff is also struggling with stairs.  Fortunately, Duff’s foster family is helping him with all of these things.  He is smart and eager to please so should work through them quickly.

Duff has an overbite and has retained all his baby teeth.  The vet mentioned he might need to see a dental specialist so Golden Bond Rescue is checking on this. Duff also has a small hernia from the umbilical cord.

All descriptions above are what we know about this dog when it was first released to GBR. Dogs are typically in foster care for three to four weeks. During that time, we will discover its true personality as witnessed by its particular foster family. The dog’s personality traits may change as it becomes accustom to its new foster home.
