Rescue Me ID: 17-03-23-00079Molly (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Our Molly is a winsome beauty, who longs to connect with her special person. Last Summer, she was found as a stray in Brooklyn, and was brought to the city pound as just one more stray Pit mix. She didn't seem too shaken by the shelter experience, and received positive behavior evaluations, and was quickly put up for adoption. After a few months, Molly's family gave up on her and returned her to the shelter. It was obvious that they failed to maintain any level of leadership or commit to any training program. And so, the second time around, our shelter contacts diverted Molly to our Rescue, so that we could do a better job at matchmaking ... (Read More)for her. Just under two years old, Molly is poised to start her new life. Good golly, Miss Molly appears to be largely an American Pitbull Terrier, however she has extremely petite features. Our shelter contacts suggest that Molly is part Border Collie. Indeed, she is a tall, lean dog at just 35 pounds. Her short, blue-black coat glistens, and she has white tuxedo markings and 'socks.' She is quick, lithe and fleet-footed, all making us agree that there may be a little Border Collie in her DNA. This is one Pocket Pittie who has the makings of an agility champion. Molly is a mix of two extremely powerful and intelligent breeds, so the need for her to receive sufficient exercise and Leadership training is paramount. She needs at least two to three brisk leash walks daily, as well as focused playtime and consistent obedience work. Molly is extremely eager to please, treat motived, and responds well to positive reinforcement training techniques. She has quite easily mastered her basic obedience routine, and is on her way to Canine Good Citizenship. Adopters should be able to continue her training and achieve certification quickly. Molly has a gentle, friendly demeanor and genuinely loves human contact. She would be a good choice for an active, dog savvy single or couple who can provide the exercise and attention that she needs. Molly is on the laid-back end of the personality spectrum, and while she loves to play, her style is not over-the-top rough-house. Molly would thrive in an active lifestyle that provides alot of action and attention, and in which she can shine as a superstar. Molly enjoys the company of other dogs, and could easily join a multi-dog home, with proper introduction and training. She has a neutral temperament that could blend into just about any kind of pack. We have not checked her with cats. She has good house manners, and is housetrained and crate trained, although adopters should be prepared to troubleshoot post training accidents during her transition to a new routine. Molly is in excellent health, has been spayed. Molly has been vaccinated for Rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza and coronavirus), She has been boostered as needed. She has had the 4dx test: negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. If you are interested in Molly, please write to Denise@eskiesonline.com or call Denise at 860-908-9738 for more info.

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Little Zeus and his sister Athena were found by animal control in traps they had set in the country in South Carolina. They had been set free in a remote place as unwanted puppies. Luckily they were recovered quickly and this little guy is as cute and playful as a puppy should be. Zeus is a little more outgoing then his sister and he has quickly learned that the touch of a hand usually has treats that come with it. Zeus weighs about 10 lbs and is around 10 weeks old. Puppies require round the clock care and his new family will need to provide that. If you think Zeus will fit right into your family, the first step is to copy and paste ...

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Hi I'm Hope and I'm a one-year-old Border Collie mix and I weigh about 40 lbs. I'm the life of the party with TONS of personality and I love everything about life: I like being outside and running around, I like playing with other dogs of all sizes, I like playing with my toys when you're busy, and I absolutely LOVE cuddling and getting belly rubs! I'm also GREAT with small children. I'm really smart, so I'm already housebroken and crate-trained. I'm a wonderful outdoor companion, so if you're looking for someone to walk, camp, or hike with, I'm DEFINITELY your girl! I was hit by a car a few months ago and have had surgery to help me heal. ... (Read More)No I may walk a little funny but that doesn't slow me down! Hope currently lives in a foster home in Texas, but transport will be included in the adoption fee and arranged by Rescue Road Trip if you choose to adopt! (Less)

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. 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.
