Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Jasmine is a sweet, calm and gentle dog; the kind of dog that too often gets overlooked at the shelter. In fact, she was only minutes away from being taken to the back for euthanasia when her gentle spirit caught my eye and we were able to tag her for rescue and save her life. When I picked her up at the shelter after the spay surgery, the clinic staff said she was the sweetest dog they had seen that day. Definitely a life worth saving! Once home, we could tell that humans had treated her unkindly in the past. However, she has moved on from that and now warmly greets not only us but also strangers. She does not have a mean bone in her body. ... (Read More)She is so kind and gentle with our young children and elderly toy dogs. She is doing great with housetraining, no accidents thus far. She is such a good girl, we can even leave her out unsupervised when we have to leave the house for an errand. Each day she is blossoming more and more in our foster home. She will make a great addition to her forever family! Jasmine is about 2 years old and weighs 34 lbs. Jasmine is currently in a foster home in Texas. If you choose to adopt her, she will be transported to you through Rescue Road Trips. The fee is included in the $375 adoption fee. (Less)

    Kate is an Aussie/Bordier Collie Black/white short hair mix 2.5 yr old female. She is high energy and needs a home that does not have a lot of high traffic of people and an owner that can spend a lot of time with her. Kate does not do well with dogs that are also the same breed as her or also herding dogs due to the nature to want to herd each other. She has gotten along with dogs that are smaller and larger than her and hunting dogs. She has gotten along with domestic cats, she does well with children but does have her threshold of amount of time she will allow for herself to be played with. She has been noted to get anxious around children ... (Read More)who are around 8-12 years old but ok with older and younger children, we have no clue why.

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    Kate is 2.5yr 75% Aussie 25% border collie mix short haired black and white female that is in need of a home. The home is preferable to have no other dogs or another dog that is of a non-herding breed, as Kate struggles with the other herding breed dogs like herself. Kate has a strong need to herd and have space to run and play. She loves to play and is easily excited. She does well with young and older children, she gets anxious with children around the age of 8-12 years old for some reason. This is what we have observed based on the children in the neighborhood and her reaction to them, her fur will stand up and she gets very scared. She ... (Read More)has done great with our little ones under 1 and up to 6 years old and teenagers. Kate does well with cats and loves to play with the cat in the home. She needs to have a family member that is home with her more frequently and a home where she is the only dog and not much traffic in and out of the home with company. Kate is a very loveable girl and needs a home where she can have the time and space to run and play with out a lot of people to make her nervous. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-06-04-00059Chrissy (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    It's been a long road for this sweet girl. She gets along with everyone in her foster home, both two legged and four legged. She is very gentle and loves everybody. Chrissy is about 7 months old, housebroken and crate trained. Saved from a high kill shelter, we can't be sure what happened to Chrissy when she was a puppy. She does have a very slight tic due to some type of head trauma. Her toe was removed because of the arthritis that had developed after the injury that left her sight impaired in her left eye and her limp on the left front leg. We can guess that she was hit by a car but we will never really know. Her teeth are stained due ... (Read More)to her being given tetracycline when she was a small puppy since the folks that found her were unsure what to do. Now Chrissy is feeling great and there is no additional medical required. This little girl is just the most loving, sweet girl and doesn't require any special attention. Her injuries come with her and cost her nothing as far as how she lives her life. She runs and plays just as rough as the other dogs. See our video how gentle she is and if you are interested, please ask us for more videos of her running and playing with the other dogs in her foster home. What a wonderful example to show people (your children?) that a dog who is not perfectly perfect deserves a loving home too. Chrissy is WONDERFUL and we think she would be the perfect first (second or third) dog for a family. She is very delicate and gentle and would be just fine with a family with smaller children. Chrissy will not be knocking anyone down! If you think Chrissy is the dog for your family, please copy and paste this link to your web browser to fill out our online application,http://members.petfinder.com/~CT243/sampleform.html. Chrissy has been vetted including spay, shots and micro chip. Full vetting and transport up north included in her $400 adoption fee. Although Chrissy looks like a Border Collie, we can't be certain what she is mixed with! (Less)

Animal ID: RDV547BOBO (male)

Border Collie    Age: Puppy

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

    Bobo is a very friendly, curious, loving dog. He is very curious and likes to check things out in the house, but generally doesn't bother things. Once he has had a chance to investigate he settles down quite quickly. He loves to be with his people, and be a part of what they are doing. He has been around children before and done fine, but he seems to be more interested in adults. He gets along very well with the foster dogs in his home, both large and small. He barks at the cats and squirrels that cross the pasture. He likes to alert his foster Mom of anything he thinks shouldn't be there. He likes to wrestle with the other large foster ... (Read More)dogs in his home, and when he has exerted his energy he enjoys long naps on the deck. He really enjoys being outside, so rainy days are tough for him, but chew bones seem to occupy him on those days. On days where he can be outside, sometimes he needs a little help with coming inside when his foster mom says it is time, he is extremely intelligent and loves to learn. He is house trained using a doggie door and has never had an accident in the house. He is excellent on leash, and rides well in the car. He is not the biggest fan of being in a crate, but he will tolerate it for short periods of time and does okay in it overnight. However, he usually sleeps on his own dog bed in his foster home at bedtime.

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.
