Police officers intervened and brought him to Chicago Animal Care and ... (Read More)Control. When his original family neglected to claim him, he was transferred to Rain Dog Rescue.

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-04-00132Grace (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Grace was rescued with her mother and 3 siblings. Mom appears to be Shepherd collie. There was a purebred looking male shepherd on the property we were told was the father, but she doesn't look like she has a purebred shepherd father. She is very sweet, with a very shy submissive personality. They came from a terrible situation and Grace took the longest to adjust to the fact we wouldn't hurt her. All the dogs from this residence are terrified of small children, completely submissive even if cornered, they hide their head, even when picking them up. She is still very shy until she knows someone. She loves attention from us! She has learned ... (Read More)to walk on a leash, is crate trained. About 10 to 11 months old, UTD vaccination, spayed and on heartworm preventative. Mom has been adopted and they couldn't be happier with her. They tried to adopt Grace at the same time but Grace was so fearful and they had a lot going on so they returned her. It did wonders for Grace though she is more outgoing then she had ever been. They loved her but just didn't have the time to walk her to potty when Grace was scared of everything around. A fenced yard would be very helpful. She is very smart and will be a very devoted dog for a nice quiet person or older family. She may never adjust to the commotion of children. (not that she's bad in anyway just so very frightened of them, she would be fine with visiting children since she would just hide.) Her adoption fee has been paid by the family who loved her but felt so terrible they just didn't have the time right now for her. A current or past vet you have used for pets number is required for us to call for a reference prior to adoption. We have many other rescued dogs available also to choose from. Contract on adoption. Brighton IL. Transport option may be available. (Less)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Say hi to Monkey! He is approximately 1 year old and is believed to be a miniature/toy Australian Shepherd or Border Collie mix weighing in at 18 lbs. He is very friendly and happy and gets along with other dogs. He plays like a little pony- bucking and bouncing around :) He would do best in a home with a family who has time to provide Monkey a lot of mental and physical stimulation. He doesn't like to be crated and would do best where someone is home with him a lot. He is a true snuggle bug and loves to jump in your lap, give you kisses and let you rub his tummy. He doesn't care too much about toys- mainly just hugs and kisses. ... (Read More)Monkey's adoption fee of $325 helps cover the cost of his vetting.

    Buddy was rescued with his mother and 3 siblings. Mom appears to be Shepherd collie. There was a purebred looking male shepherd on the property we were told was the father. Rocky looks like a longer coated shepherd collie mix. He is very sweet, and very shy with strangers. They came from a terrible situation. All 5 dogs rescued from the location are terrified of children and run and hide. He is very submissive with teens and adults. and would prefer to also hide from them until he knows them. He loves attention from us, is cuddly and happy, but is still learning new people won't hurt him at random. He has learned to walk on a leash fairly ... (Read More)well, is crate trained. About 10 to 11 months old, UTD vaccination, neutered and on heartworm preventative. He is great with a wide range of dogs, submissive to them yet loves to play and even the crabby dogs who don't want to play often learn to play when they are kenneled with him. He has no interest in cats. A home with another happy outgoing dog would be perfect so he can gain more confidence from the other dog. He is one of my favorite dogs as hard as I try not to have favorites. He has a sweet collie personality. A current or past vet you have used for pets number is required for us to call for a reference prior to adoption. We have many other rescued dogs available also to choose from. Contract on adoption.

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.
