Rescue Me ID: 14-04-16-00226Lobo (male)

Border Collie    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Lobo is black and white with a mostly black face. He is currently living in a one-bedroom apartment with his owner, but he has too much energy to live in such as a small environment, and he is barking and disturbing the neighbors in the building. He has been a one-owner dog his whole life and has been always been up-to-date on vaccinations. He is currently a few weeks behind on getting his vaccinations, but his owner intends to take care of those. Lobo is timid around new people, but he has no history of aggression. At this time, if a home isn't found, his owner is facing eviction, so the owner may have no choice but to have Lobo ... (Read More)euthanized to avoid homelessness for both of them. (Less)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Nadia appears to be a border collie mix and maybe black mouth cur? which is common in the area she is from. She has a smooth coat, is about 23 pounds and 4 months old. She was at a high kill shelter and had been adopted but returned to the shelter so her time was up even though she is just a puppy. She didn't know anything after spending so much time in the shelter, but she is crate crated and goes to the door when she needs out to potty. A particularly smart puppy! She learned to walk on the leash very quickly and learned to stop and wait immediately yet had obviously not been taught any limitations on anything. She was very skinny, even ... (Read More)though the shelter appears to feed them well. Due to feeling starved she was food aggressive with the other dogs, (not with people). She now gets all she wants to eat and is filling in nicely. She is now with several bigger dogs and has learned all kinds of normal dog manners. She needs an active home and firm leader to keep up with her training. She just loves to play with the same age puppies and older dogs. Maybe to rough for small dogs. Vet phone number to call for a reference, and contract required to adopt. (Less)

    Honey is a very beautiful, shy, sweet, energetic and fun five-month-old, 28-pound, female, blonde and white Border Collie-mix looking for a loving guardian. Honey is a friendly, wiggly, goofy puppy who is full of tail wags and kisses. She loves to play with other dogs and she's even good with the dog-friendly cats in her foster home. She does like to do a little herding of people, dogs and cats, in a fun way! Honey already knows how to sit on command and is doing great with her housebreaking and crate-training.

Rescue Me ID: 14-04-04-00173Honey (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Honey looks to be a Red Heeler cattle dog. I don't know how she ended up in a shelter. She is SUPER sweet, completely housebroken, learned how to walk on a leash in one day and is just a wonderful easy dog. Loves children! She is one of those good girls who sits at your feet for attention, and is SO smart! Traveled great on the 12 hour ride home from the shelter. Perfect with the other dogs and puppies. She was at a very rural shelter that is not open to the public, and does no adoptions. The dogs are kept 1 to 4 days before being killed by heartsick. (legally it is suppose to be 4 days, but they are being investigated because records ... (Read More)indicate it is often less then 4 days.) Only a rescue group can get them out. I seen a photo of a smooth collie, which we use to raise years ago and couldn't get anyone in the area to help by fostering him for a week or 2. So I decided to make an emergency run all the way down there before he was killed, and also figured we might as well save as many as we could. Honey was at the same place and had the saddest sweet face ever. We got 13 dogs out of nasty shelters. She will be spayed and is now UTD on vaccinations before she is available. We can hold her with a deposit for the right family until she has been spayed then she will be available. Current or past Vet number, and a contract is required to adopt. If your seriously interested in Honey please send vet information in first email to us. (Less)

    Meet Rollie, a gorgeous Border Collie / Flat Coated Retriever mix has everything going for him and he even tolerates cats!!! He was on the euthanasia list at ACS in San Antonio and we decided to take him. He needs an active home with a runner or someone who is willing to exercise him daily.

Border Collie Mix    Age: Senior

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

    [Read About Natural Incontinence Care] Angel is a very sweet dog but high energy. She needs firm discipline and boundaries. We have a 7-month old who has started crawling and sadly we can't keep Angel around him any more - they're not a good mix! She needs more attention than we can give now that we have the baby to think of. Husband does NOT want to keep her in the house and wants to euthanize if we can't place her. Local shelter has no room. We have had her 5 years and are so sad to give her up. Only health issue is a bit of arthritis, and incontinence which seems to be managed okay with pills.

Rescue Me ID: 14-01-13-00108Sammy (male)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    This dog is exceptionally intelligent! Sammy was at a high kill shelter and out of time. Weighs about 45 pounds, about 1 year old, just a big puppy, and is SO much more handsome in person! He's a very dark seal or blue and white, not actually a black and white dog. The volunteers begged us to take him in since he was one of their favorites from the week before and his adopter didn't show up on the only day to pull from that shelter so they held him over the next week to give him some extra time, and then his time was really up. He is energetic when doing something, very smart. He traveled great in the vehicle for a long distance to get here ... (Read More)and to and from the vets, he loves people. He has been neutered is heart worm negative healthy and UTD on all vaccinations. He is crate trained, and doing excellent on a leash, even though he acted like he had never had one on in the past when he was first pulled from the shelter. I just love him! I wish we had more time to spend with teaching him because he learned the basic pattern her in just days. Very smart and wants to please SO badly! He is athletic and would be perfect for an agility dog or maybe flyball or something like that, jogging. He can jump a normal height fence so going out with him to potty or using a covered kennel to potty in is needed. He does bark if just left outside in a kennel, but quiets when told, and in general has become a lot more relaxed and better about not feeling he is going to be forgotten forever again. He is quiet in a crate, when with you or doing something. He looks like a working border collie, with pointer, or heeler mix. He acts like a border collie. He isn't sure about new dogs but has done wonderful adjusting. Contract and vet reference required to adopt. Friend is willing to pay half his $200. adoption fee, so he is $100 at this time. (Less)

She is crate trained, and learned to walk on a leash in just a few days. She is so willing to please! She is happy to potty outside and we only have her loose inside for short periods as she learns house manners. She is such a sweet dog and quickly became on of my favorites. She loves to play and is great with all the other dogs and puppies, has a ... (Read More)more submissive personality. She may have some hound in her also? unknown on breed.

    Queenie was left tied to a tree and her owners moved away leaving her to starve. Animal control was called and she was put in the pound. Her time was up when we rescued her. The volunteers begged everyone to get her out because she is such a very sweet dog! She was very young, may be less then a year old when we rescued her last fall. She has very unique color all black with brindle legs and checks, beautiful. She has a narrow face like a collie mix, and is sweet and submissive like one. She LOVES children. She loves everybody, gets along great with other dogs, even puppies. She is very healthy heart-worm negative, spayed and current on ... (Read More)health care. She is housebroken, and crate trained walks well on a leash. She acts like the silly puppy she is and will chew on things if she doesnt have a toy or is left to entertain herself. Crating recommended when not under supervision (that goes for all puppies or new unknown dogs!) She is super sweet and has a really wonderful personality. We had a woman say she wanted her so she was on hold her (4 months now) before she finally said she really can't adopt her. Vet reference and contract required to adopt. (Less)

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.
