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. If you are interested in Wednesday, please write to Denise@eskiesonline.com or call Denise at 860-908-9738. Eskies Online is a 501(c)(3) Multibreed rescue group that serves unwanted American Eskimos and other dogs in need.

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-11-00057Trixie (female)

Border Collie    Age: Senior

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

    Our delightful dowager, Trixie, had a real shock to her system, when her owner died last year, and a concerned neighbor sent her to us, along with her beloved housemate, Akiak. Akiak was adopted right away, and left Trixie behind. Ten years old, this lovely Border Collie was really thrown for a loop. Trixie, we discovered, is deaf, making the transition even more difficult for her. Over the course of the last couple of months, Trixie has mellowed out, and has proven to be a complete love. She is experiencing some stress from adjusting to our multi-dog Rescue, so we would love to see her in a quiet, relaxed environment with folks who are ... (Read More)willing to open their hearts to a deaf senior. Trixie would be an ideal companion dog: she loves people, loves to be stroked and brushed, and greatly appreciates human touch. Trixie is a Border Collie, who has lived her life as a pampered pet. Trixie arrived with a summer 'puppy cut' that did little to flatter her zaftig figure. Over the past few months, Trixie's lush, black and white coat has regrown to its former glory, and she is a vision of soft, curly waves with elegant white tuxedo markings and spotted white socks. She is easy to groom, and enjoys daily brushing. At the age of 10, Trixie is well past that maddening, hyperactive Border Collie youngster phase. Her ideal situation would be a home in which she could shine as Superstar. We would like to see her lavished with attention and love. She is the ideal companion dog, and prefers to relax in the company of her special person. She would do well with either an active single or couple, or retiree who enjoys a couple of brisk leash walk daily. Her needs are very minimal, but she definitely needs a loving environment for her golden years. As a spritely senior, Trixie is way past the puppy destructive years, and would be a good choice for apartment living. She's not overly reactive to sounds, and doesn't seem to bark much. Although Trixie has lived her life with another dog, she seems to feel that Akiak is tough to replace, and hasn't accepted the many other fosters in her orbit. We believe that she could grow fond of one other well-behaved dog, that is willing to give her space. She may well be the ideal companion to another senior dog who recently lost their beloved housemate. She could do well in a family with older children, but toddlers would not be the best fit, as their overzealous attentions can spook laid-back dogs. Trixie has good house manners, and is house trained and crate trained. Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during her transition to a new home. Trixie is in good health and has recently been spayed, and has had a full dental. Her pre-op bloodwork was normal, and she has many great quality of life years left. Trixie can be a chow hound and is still on the chubby side at 63 pounds. Adopters should watch her weight, and make sure she gets exercise each day. Trixie has been vaccinated for Rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitus, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza, coronavirus), and Canine Flu. She has been boostered as needed. She has had the 4dx test: negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis. She has been dewormed, microchipped and is on preventatives for Heartworm and Flea/Tick. If you are interested in Trixie, please write to Denise@eskiesonline.com or call Denise at 860-908-9738 for more info.

Rescue Me ID: 17-03-12-00091Shadow (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    My name is Shadow and I'm a 5-year-old Cattle Dog mix and weigh about 35 lbs. I had a rough start on life, but despite that, I have so much love to give! I'm a little shy when you first meet me, but I'm quickly learning to trust people and show my love by cuddling and giving gentle kisses. I love playing with my dog friends, but I'm very gentle, so I'm also great with small children. I'm a very quiet girl, so I don't bark or whine. I'm 100% potty trained, which means no accidents in the house for me - plus, I'm not destructive, so I don't chew anything up! I would be perfect in an apartment - I like to just lounge around and hang out with my ... (Read More)people. So let me know if you're looking for a calm and loyal pup that will look up to you for a lifetime! Daria 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.
