Rescue Me ID: 14-12-02-00535Sammy (male)

Border Collie    Age: Adult

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

    All Sammy wants for Christmas is a real home who will love and care for him forever! Sammy was picked up as a stay in very bad condition and going to be put down the next day due to being older and how bad he looked. He was a skinny 38 pounds, covered in fleas, had almost no coat, is missing part of his ear and the end of his tail, and was not wanting to eat just cowering in the kennel terrified of all the loud sounds at the shelter. He is shy of strangers, better in a home quite home not because he's bad but because he would want to hide if it were very noisy or had lots of people coming and going. He adjusted to being here very quickly ... (Read More)once he knew we weren't going to hurt him. He didn't have any trouble with being put with any of the dogs even tiny dogs. He was very easy to leash train, crate train and all around did great with whatever was asked of him as long as we were slow and gave him time to adjust. He loves to be pet, but won't come up to you if your an intimidating type of person. I believe he has had a really rough past and all he wants to do is stay away from anything negative. He has never acted out in anyway simply melts even if your doing something like trimming his nails or giving him a bath. He is a very, very sweet dog and one of my favorites. Sammy is current on vaccinations, neutered, was treated for heartwroms and is microchipped. He is on heartworm preventative. He's good with any dogs but will lay by and guard the food bowl. He was so starved when we got him he was eating anything, (like shingles off the dog house, a stack of drywall and dirt. Now that he is chubby and knows theres food, plus no doubt is past any deficiencies which can cause pika he never eats anything strange. He is not at all destructive with his blankets and loves a soft place to lay. He really doesn't know any commands but he does come when called and he would love to learn there are other great people out there who won't hurt him besides us. He is guessed to be 6 to 8 years old and weighs a chubby 61 pounds now. He never potties in his indoor kennel but I don't know if he's housebroken. Sammy is a lovely quiet and sweet boy who deserves a wonderful home and not to spend the rest of his life in a kennel. Adoption fee is negotiable to the right home. Vet's phone number you use currently or in the past is required to adopt for a reference. We have 30 rescued dogs of all sizes all praying for a real home! Please do not consider a dog for Christmas unless you want a dog as a family member for its whole life. (Less)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    zzy' is a social, energetic, beautiful puppy, who loves to play and be loved on. She is good with the other dogs that like to play hard and then crash and rest. She is ok with the cats in her foster home, but would be best without them as she is a bit too inquisitive towards them. She is 6 mos. of age, born 06-06-2014, and weighs 35 to 38 #'s. She is doing great with house training, as long as you let her out often. A basic companion dog class is highly recommended, as Izzy is an intelligent and eager to earn girl. She will be your BFF at class and also learn what is expected of her. Izzy would be an awesome agility dog and this would keep ... (Read More)her mentally and physically stimulated. HELP will also reimburse $50.00 of your class fee if you complete a class within 4 mos. of adoption. A fenced in yard to run and play in, plus a family where someone is home more than not is best for Izzy. Since she has a bit of herding breed in her children over 5 is requested. Izzy is crate trained, sleeps all night quietly in her foster mom's room, and is really a sweet loving girl. She is gentle with people, and likes everyone she has met. Walks are a favorite of hers, and she is enjoying the experience of seeing new things. Izzy has learned sit, come, 'no', and drop already, and is working on responding quicker too. After all, she is still a puppy! She would love a family that loves her and will give her a 4-Ever home this Christmas season! Woof! (Less)

He is full of kisses and tail wags for everyone. Sadly, he was found stray in the Englewood neighborhood where children were beating him with sticks. Police officers intervened and brought the dog to Chicago Animal Care and Control. When his original family neglected to claim him, he was transferred to ... (Read More)Rain Dog Rescue.

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