Rescue Me ID: 15-08-24-00005Sweetwater (courtesy) (male)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Sweetwater's short story: Brought home as an adorable puppy, he grew up outside, in the company of an old dog, sleeping in a culvert in bad weather, or basking on the porch on sunny days. When he failed to teach himself how to herd cattle, he was given up. Sweetwater is still adorable, and very smart, affectionate, and sweet-tempered. If you would like to meet Sweetwater, please contact Abbie Lynn at mauiranch@yahoo.com.

Rescue Me ID: 15-08-22-00220Sammi (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    The very first thing that Sammi the Border Collie/Australian Shephard mix wants to make clear is that she's a love. In this photo, you're not aware of the darkest charcoal black and whitest of white that run through her gorgeous coat. It is with grooming, care and great nutrition that Sammi's coat will show its gorgeous colors. Everything is new to Sammi...her adorable little nose sniffs shyly at an outstretched hand...and then an ear to ear smile if it's a loving touch. And then before you know it, Sammi is next to you on the couch. She's so happy there because her human (and canine) relationships are so important to her. We have to ... (Read More)remember that Sammi comes from a very tough and challenging shelter. This 9 - 12 month old, 35 lb (anticipated adult weight 35 - 40 lbs--what a perfect size for a Colorado dog!) Border Collie/Aussie mix truly lights up whens she feels likes she's done a good job... some serious hugging and kind words will send her over the moon. In this spirit of great behavior, Sammi is doing very well at mastering house skills...quite an accomplishment for a rescue pup! Sammi's foster mom has the following to say about Sammi: Sammi is doing great! She really enjoys (and even loves) my 2 dogs and they all have the greatest time playing in my yard. Sammi is very respectful of them. I was very pleasantly surprised at the level of her respect and gentle nature - when they tell her they have had enough play time, Sammi immediately backs off and keeps herself busy in a positive way. You would also expect a young Border Collie to be a bit crazy and have tons of energy..this isn't the case with Sammi. She has exactly the right amount of energy. She's so responsive..if she jumps on me, I just have to say no and she responds. She also learned the sit command in about 2 minutes..no kidding. It must be about the natural intelligence (and inherent great personalities) of these working-type dogs. I actually think Sammi is quite calm for a 9 - 12 month old. She loves to play, run and beginnings of frisbee play...but then loves to cuddle equally. Her temperament is outstanding! I just have to walk into the room and glance at her...it's head to toe waggy tail and huge smile. She is such a sweet girl - anyone who welcomes Sammi into their home is truly getting a gem of a dog! Sammi' SUMMARY Sammi is such a people dog. She loves kids of all ages but they definitely must be very gentle and handle her kindly. We envision Sammi with an active retired couple or individual or a family with a bit older kids who want a beautiful and sweet dog as a family member and best companion. She would be so excited to spend her days in the company of her family. Being a Border Collie/Aussie, Sammi loves physical exercise as well as mental stimulation. She would be a natural in positive reinforcement group obedience classes and agility class. She would love the challenge and is so smart and wanting to please, she would excel. Sammi would also be overjoyed to hike along Colorado paths..enjoying the sunshine and time with her people. Her nature is to be very joyful and in moments her silly and fun nature takes over. We've requested that Sammi be spayed prior to her transport to Denver. We're not optimistic that this will occur due to too many dogs and not enough vets in these rural areas. In fulfilling our commitment to zero population growth, Farfels is happy to cover all costs for spaying and a microchip for Sammi if our Denver vet is used. Sammi will be arriving on transport in Denver on 8/28/15. If interested in this fun-loving, sweet and very devoted puppy, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to farfelsapps@gmail.com. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-08-21-00209Bernadette (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    The Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix is a perfect combo for those with who are searching for an extremely smart, active and loyal companion. They're famous for their intelligence, great temperaments and loving and snuggly ways. They're also known to be trustworthy and very gentle with family members and other family pets.. They (like all dogs) require exercise and love being with their people...if a walk or hike is the order of the day - count them in! These breed mixes are known to hike joyfully through the Colorado mountains...and then crash on the couch snuggling close to their favorite humans, canines and felines (Bernadette ... (Read More)loves all!). Bernadette is an absolutely adorable and engaging puppy who was chosen for that coveted ticket to a new life in Colorado because of her extraordinary temperament. She's just 12 weeks old and 8.8 lbs (anticipated to be approximately 35 lbs when full-grown) and filled with nothing but love and great intentions. She will be that perfect companion for kids who love dogs and are yearning for that fuzzy best friend. Bernadette would also love adult company...perfect for a morning run or frisbee at the park. Bernadette's Oklahoma foster mom sent us the following report on this sweet puppy: Bernadette has to be the the most endearing pup ever! She greets me in the morning with the cutest smile. She very politely asks for breakfast. I also have to brag about how great she has become in her crate as long as she's been allowed to play puppy-hard and interact with her human and doggie friends during the day. She didn't make a peep last night! (FYI - she's better with an open wire kennel...a blanket over the top for security worked well) She was a bit hesitant when I put her in a closed travel crate although that could just be because it smells like my cat, Sophie). ;o) Bernadette is a truly sweet Aussie Shep/Border Collie mix, also known as an AusBor (in other words, she's a stunning designer dog, teehee)! Bernie weighs just 8.8 lbs. and has a calm, gentle nature and always sweet (no matter what!) personality. She gets along famously with my senior 80 lb. Smooth Coat Collie and young, energetic 14 lb. Miniature Poodle and is very polite with my cats. In other words she's perfect and I'd never let her go if my husband didn't put his foot down at 5 pets! Full disclosure - Bernadette is the greatest companion I've ever fostered! She perks up with love every time she sees me...and actually engages with pure joy with every human and dog she meets...always behaving herself like a champion. What can I say...Bernie is a dream-puppy..no kidding! She is a wonderful companion, loves to be in your lap but never needy or whiny (unless very tired). She will steal your heart (and the hearts of your family) instantly. I only ask that she be loved completely. No dog ever deserved it more! Our rescue assessment of sweet Bernadette is that her kind nature is just waiting to be enjoyed and appreciated...she makes playmates everywhere she goes. Bernie is very outgoing and social and that means everyone she meets can ultimately becomes a friend. You know when a loved one approaches, Bernie's tail starts the greeting and it wiggles up through her entire body ending into a smile. And if your lap is available, up Bernadette goes to cuddle and snuggle and let you know the level of her devotion. Bernadette is such a wonderful being...we think she represents the best qualities of her breed mix. As Bernie has become comfortable in a foster home, she has become a fuzzy ball of good-will that loves to please - the happier her family is with her behavior, the more she shines with her accomplishments. We would like to see Bernie in a home that includes her in family time and activities... and takes that extra step to participate in puppy kindergarten followed by positive reinforcement obedience classes. These classes take a very smart dog like Bernadette and molds them into a great family member that can behave appropriately in any situation. Bernie would also be a wonderful companion for active retirees who have the time and desire to be best friends with a truly adorable young pup. Bernadette would enjoy another playful dog to run and tumble with...she's so entertaining as she puts her positive energy into some serious play. Bernadette will arrive on transport in Denver on 8/28/15. If interested in this sweet, playful and very loyal companion, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to farfelsapps@gmail.com. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-08-10-00567Dazi (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Dazi is looking for the right family who can give her a great new home. This beloved pup is a border collie / pit bull mix. She will be two years old in September, is spayed, has had her shots and good vet care since she was adopted at 8 weeks old. Dazi is calm, obedient, trained and sweet. She is small (about 40 lbs) and she gets along with cats and other dogs. At this time, she is the only dog in her home but we think she will blend into your pack well and won't need to be the alpha. Currently her best buddy is a cat. She needs a home with some space to run - either a farm/ranch or large fenced yard and where she won't be left alone for ... (Read More)long periods of time. My son and his girlfriend adopted Dazi when they were teenagers, in high school. Regardless of parental objections to the adoption, they became great parents to Dazi for two years. But, now that they have graduated, they're realizing that they can't take care of Dazi as they go off into the world, move from place to place and develop their adult lives. The situation, moving Dazi around instead of leaving her in one home and what to do about it all, has created some conflicts with extended family and the kids realize that the most loving thing they can do for Dazi is find her one forever home with someone who can care for her properly and to find that home as soon as possible. Dazi is protective of her home and family with strangers and visiting dogs, (in a normal dog way), and she needs to be adopted by a family, who know how to handle these protection instincts. These instincts do not manifest when Dazi is the visiting dog, which is why we think she will blend into an existing pack with no problem. Please PM me for an opportunity to meet Dazi. She is a sweetheart! (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Border Collie in Colorado
    Border Collie Dogs can make good pets in Colorado if they match your IifestyIe. Border Collies are extremely intelligent, faithful dogs who live to please their masters. Border Collies need lots of attention and praise. They respond to high level obedience training and make excellent Frisbee dogs and farm workers. Border Collies do well in large yards or with acreage and they need a job to do. If a Border Collie becomes bored, he will find his own job to do and it may not be the owner's idea of work. Border Collies do well with older children and other dogs, and some Border Collies can coexist with cats. However, it depends on the dog, and generally Border Collies should not be trusted with non-canine pets.
