Rescue Me ID: 18-04-25-00054Winston (male)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Some lucky family is going to have the time of lives with our adorable puppy, Winston. He recently came to us from a small country shelter in Virginia, after local Animal Control Officers found him on the run. During his time at the shelter, Winston appeared frightened and shy. He had the aura of a depressed dog that was unsure of his surroundings and of his future. Winston caught the eye of one of our rescue friends, who immediately contacted us to help him. We were thrilled to invite Winston to Connecticut, and he has settled into foster care beautifully. Winston has really blossomed and shown us that dopey puppy personality that will ... (Read More)tickle the fancy of an active family, who are all on the same page about raising an older puppy. Winston is now one year old, and has that gangly, rangy look of young dog not yet in full command of his feet. He is a tall, leggy dog, with an atheletic build. He is quite fast and loves to run. At 43 pounds, Winston is slightly underweight, and he could easily to fill out to 45 to 50 pounds. Shelter staff described Winston as a Staffie, although he bears no real resemblance to that breed standard. We believe him to be a Border Collie mixed with some Labrador Retriever. He has a very athletic physique, and a black and white color pattern with some speckling, that suggests a Border Collie look. Winston has the square head and floppy ears of the Lab, and while he is an energetic, athletic dog, he seems less high strung than some of his Border Collie bretheren. Winston's personality seems more in sync with the Labrador breed standard, and he has the delightful personality of a genial family dog. His nature is sweet and loving, and he is not likely to play favorites in a family dynamic. Winston is very kid friendly and touchable. He craves human attention and would enjoy interacting with older children and being part of a large family. The greatest challenge with Winston, is shepherding him through his adolescent stage, and continuing him on a solid regimen of exercise and obedience. He is past the teething stage, and has not proven himself to be overly destructive, but folks who take on a young dog must be prepared to puppy proof the premises and have realistic expectations of his limitations as far as house training and unsupervised time at home alone. Winston is extremely smart and has begun to grasp the concepts of basic obedience training. He is a dog who could go the full route to Canine Good Citizenship certification, and become a well trained family member, who is welcomed everywhere. His temperament is outstanding, he is extremely friendly to everyone he meets. He has demonstrated no issues with other dogs. We think he may fit into a feline home, although a young pup would likely chase cats in play. Winston has decent house manners for a youngster, and is mostly house trained and nicely crate trained. Adopters must expect to finetune his potty routine, as he transitions to his new home. Winston is in excellent health, and has been neutered. He had one of the best Vet reactions of any dog we've had recently, as he cajoled his way through the poke and prod routine. He has been vaccinated for rabies and DA2PP (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza, and coronavirus). He has had the 4dx test, and is negative for heartworm, earlichia and anaplasmosis. Upon leaving the Virginia shelter he was diagnosed with Lyme, and has been treated with a 28-day course of antibiotic. Our vet does not expect future complications. He has been treated for intestional parasites. If you are interested in Winston, please write to Denise@eskiesonline.com or call Denise at 860-908-9738 for more info. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-04-02-00051Oreo (male)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Our handsome boy, Oreo Truffle, is a natural athelete! He is another magnificent beauty with a tough luck story, a rescue statistic at just one year old. Oreo was surrendered by owners to NYCACC, because they couldn't afford vet basic care. He found himself incarcerated in the City pound, facing an uncertain fate. Oreo was one of the lucky ones, whose good looks and charisma charmed his caretakers and evaluators, so that they reached out to us on his behalf. His shelter behavior evaluations were great, and he made fast friends with all handlers. Even the vet staff gave him rave reviews as he endured their relentless scrutiny. Oreo's luck ... (Read More)ran out when he contracted the kennel cough bug that runs rampant through many city shelters. Once his URI kicked in, he was booted from the adoption program and put on the 'At Risk' List. When we saw Oreo's shelter photo, we knew that there is untapped greatness in him. This dog is destined to be an agility or obedience champion. At the very least, he could become a Canine Good Citizen. Oreo is likely a mix of graceful breeds, perhaps Labrador Retriever and Border Collie. He has a large dog height and stance, and is slightly underweight at 50 pounds. Oreo could easily gain 5 to 10 pounds and be at an ideal weight of 60. Oreo will be a superstar one day very soon. Oreo is a stunning dog with a tall graceful physique and striking color pattern. He is black-based, with white markings including white 'socks' and a wide white stripe down his chest. He also has a black a freckled pattern on the white patches. Oreo has Labrador high energy and need for activity that provides mental stimulation. In personality and temperment, he seems much more Retriever than than Herder. He is eager to please, attentive, and works hard during his training rituals. Oreo is the star of our Training program, and the obedience work comes easy to him. He eagerly works for treats or praise. Adopters will have a blast as they continue Oreo's training regimen. Obedience work is the ideal activity to challenge his mind and body. Oreo is a high energy older puppy. Just one year old, he needs a good deal of exercise to keep him calm and happy. He would be an enthusiastic running buddy, and would love outdoors activities like hiking or camping. If underexercised, Oreo will become restless and frustrated. The active lifestyle of a single or couple would be the best fit, although, a high energy, active family with older kids, would also thrill him, just as long as the family schedule allows adequate time for his training needs. In demeanor, Oreo is a dreamboat. He is simply irresistible, and turns heads as he prances down the street. He has no stranger danger. In fact, he thrives on human touch and affection. He is great with older kids, but toddlers may be overwhelmed with his energy. Likewise, he may be too much 'dog' for the average cat. Oreo is in excellent health, and will be neutered this week. He has been vaccinated for Rabies and DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza and coronavirus). He has had the 4dx test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. He has been microchipped and dewormed. If you are interested in Oreo, please write to Denise@eskiesonline.com or call Denise at 860-908-9738 for more info. (Less)

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 

    Sweety is the perfect name for this lab/border collie mix. She is about 8 months old, approx 45 lbs. She is great with other dogs, just wants to play and is very social. She has done well with all the kids she has met but is still a bouncy pup so a home without little ones may be best so they dont get knocked over. Sweety's foster mom has been working with her on manners and self control and shes becoming quite a well behaved lady. She is crate trained, walks well on a leash and has mastered 'sit' . Sweety is food motivated which will make further training a breeze. Sweety is currently fostered in CT Sound like the dog for you? Visit our ...

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-14-00078Wednesday (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Our stunning Wednesday enters the room like an arctic blast of cold on a hot summer night and grabs your attention! This magnificent one and a half year old, black Labrador Retriever mix came to us from a big city Animal Control facility, where she spent some time after a lackluster owners abandoned her. She was rail thin and gaunt when she entered the city shelter system, and took some time to adjust to her harsh surroundings. When Wednesday came to our Rescue, she was a wild child, a Black Beauty in need of some firm, loving leadership. It was painfully obvious that her owners had missed all of her social development cues, and woefully ... (Read More)neglected her manners and leadership training. Wednesday was as precocious as her Addams Family namesake, and seemed to feel that her opinion was warranted on just about every subject. In no time, Wednesday has developed into a canine thoroughbred, brimming with potential. An energy and personality match is key to Wednesday's happiness. She is a high energy, athletic dog who needs alot of outdoor exercise. She would gleefully keep rigorous pace with an avid runner, hiker or powerwalker, and seems to thrive in the brisk country air. No doubt about it, Wednesday needs an active adopter, but, also one who is extremely proficient in leadership and obedience training. She is not a dog for the casual or inexperienced adopter. Wednesday largely appears to be Labrador Retriever, but we also suspect some Border Collie in her DNA. She is a lean, tall dog weighing 47 pounds, and is extremely graceful and athletic. She runs with great speed, and could be an agility champion. Wednesday has the energy and intelligence that we see in this high strung Herding breed, as well as the mischievious and impertinent tendency that sometimes occurs when Border Collies are under exercised and bored! As a double dose of working dog, Wednesday definitely needs a job, and she is a natural at obedience work. She knows all her basic commands, and has passed many of the Canine Good Citizenship tests. She handles beautifully on lead, and heels nicely. Wednesday still needs some polish on her stranger manners, since she may, on occasion, greet someone rudely, but motivated adopters should be able to work her through any issues by employing her well honed commands. In the right hands, Wednesday will become a fantastic, well behaved companion. Wednesday would fare best in an adult home, with adopters experienced in handling large, active breeds. She would overwhelm toddlers and seniors. She could easily join a multi-dog home, with another active, well trained dog, but sometimes, unruly and ill mannered dogs press her buttons. We have not had her around cats, but she would most likely chase them beyond their tolerance level. Wednesday has respectable house manners and is mostly housetrained. She will need some finetuning on her potty routine as she transitions to a new environment. Wednesday is in good health, and has been spayed. She has been vaccinated for rabies, bordatella, and DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza and coronavirus). She has had the 4dx test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. She has been microchipped and dewormed, and is on monthly flea/tick and heartworm treatment.

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-23-00049Hero (male)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Our magnificent Hero needs a hero of his own. This beautiful, robust boy is a victim of circumstances. His doting owner lost her home, and desperately tried to find housing to accommodate her beloved companion, whom she had raised from a pup. Hero's Mom took up temporary residence in a local motel, until she could get her bearings, but Hero was booted out by the motel manager. After a tearful goodbye, sad Hero was left in the care of a well-respected town shelter, who pled his case to us. Hero appears to be a handsome mix of black Labrador Retriever and Border Collie. He has the physique and color of a black Lab, and the white tuxedo ... (Read More)markings and black speckled white socks that suggest Border Collie. At 50 pounds, Hero has a solid, muscular build, and yet is easy to handle on lead. As a combination herder and retriever, Hero loves the outdoors, and has a hardwired work ethic that needs to be channeled through exercise and obedience work. Hero sometimes seems unsure of his place in the world, and needs to join a home with a strong pack leader, willing to provide the structure that he needs to to thrive. Hero gives the impression of caution at first, as he sizes up strangers, but warms quickly to a gentle touch. Adopters will need to be comfortable putting boundaries between Hero and strangers: he can become overzealous in guarding his person. He would be the ideal watchdog. Hero seems subdued and intimidated at times, in the midst of our busy foster home, and we sense that a quiet, adult home would suit him best. He is not a big fan of change, and a steady, quiet routine will serve him beautifully. Hero would be the ideal walking or running companion for an active single or couple. He loves the outdoors, can keep a brisk pace on a hike, and longs to make a one-to-one connection with a strong human personality. Hero could easily join a multi-dog home with another well-trained, calm dog, but cats are a definite no-go. Hero has progressed nicely in his basic obedience training. The obedience work serves him as a job he can take pride in, and he performs the commands beautifully, either for praise or treats. Obedience training is key to providing the working breeds with the purpose and focus that they need to live happily in a domestic lifestyle. Hero has good house manners and is house trained and crate trained. Adopters should have appropriate patience, and expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during Hero's transition to a new home. He is in excellent health, and is at an ideal lean body weight. He has been neutered, and has been vaccinated for Rabies, DA2PP (distemper, adrenovirus, parvo and parainfluenza), and Canine Flu. He has been boostered as needed, and has had the 4dx test: negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. He has been dewormed, and microchipped.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Border Collie in Connecticut
    Border Collie Dogs can make good pets in Connecticut 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.
