Rescue Me ID: 14-12-29-00200Heidi (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Heidi is a 10 year old female border collie. She is up to date on all vaccines (proof of this provided), spayed, treated with preventatives for fleas/ticks/heartworm, and ready for a forever home. This girl has lives with cats and does great with them. Heidi would NOT do well in a home with other dogs though because she does NOT like to share with them. Over extended periods of time Heidi can become more and more possessive of items in a home and directs this aggressive possessiveness against other dogs. She is fine meeting other dogs on the street and such, she just does not like to live with any others. She does okay with young children ... (Read More)but would probably prefer a home without them because of her age, but grandchildren or children that that visit would be fine with her. She is a HUGE couch potato, very quiet, and incredibly sweet. She is housebroken, and does fine with a crate. She likes women but seems to LOVE men! Heidi was found as a stray at a year old and adopted out to a couple by the local vet. Earlier this year the wife passed away and the older gentleman could not care for Heidi and brought her back to the vets were she stayed until someone stepped up to foster her. Heidi was adopted from the foster home but the adoption did not work out due to the fact that she was discovered to have this resource guarding targeted at other dogs. Heidi was adopted again by a younger couple and kept for a month before they said they had to return her because they were moving. So sadly Heidi is looking for a new home for the 4th time in her life! Heidi is located in Manchester, CT and adopters must drive to pick her up after being approved to adopt. To adopt adopters must fill out an application (using the link below) which includes references we will check, and allow a home visit at their residence. There is a small adoption fee for Heidi, and a promise of a great other dog free retirement home where she can be the queen. (Less)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    ADOPTION PENDING Jerry is a GORGEOUS young (about a year old) border collie / pointer mix who - sadly - has spent virtually his whole life in the shelter. Jerry is - understandably - a little shy and confused right now. Regardless of that, he is a gentle, loving, affectionate boy who LOVES children, LOVES giving kisses, and even does well with other dogs (of course proper introductions are always necessary). Right now he is badly underweight - but reportedly he is gobbling down his food with gusto - and with 3 meals a day he should be packing on the pounds pretty quickly! If you can open your home and heart to Jerry please email: ... (Read More) (Less)

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.
