Rescue Me ID: 16-07-21-00074Emma (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    DOB 5/4/14 40 lbs Miss Affectionate Emma is ready to find her forever home! We are guessing her to possibly be Border Collie/ Pit Mix. She loves cuddles, kisses and belly rubs. Everyone who meets her says how sweet she is, with good manners. She loves people, even strangers. Watching her play and run around the yard, her foster mom believes she would love to participate in agility classes. Also, Emma would make a great running partner. Running, chasing , and playing with the other dogs in her foster home, is one of her favorite things to do. It has also been fun watching her learn to play with toys, which she now enjoys. Currently not ... (Read More)crated, she is fine loose in the house, since her foster mom is with her all day but she is crate trained. Not uncommon, she is not a fan of loud noises like storms, the vacuum, and sensitive to 'yelling'. If you would like to meet fun loving Emma, please go to www.alwaysroom4morepaws.com to read about our adoption process.Here you will also find the application to fill out and send back. *Breed and age are a guess, and not a guarantee. **We are foster home based and always in need of more foster homes. The more foster homes we have, the more puppies and dogs we can save from high kill shelters. Without out amazing volunteers, these puppies and dogs would never know what it means to be loved and taken care of. For more information on fostering, please contact alwaysroom4morepaws2@yahoo.com.

Rescue Me ID: 16-07-20-00507Minnie (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    DOB 3/1/15 After seeing Minnie's shelter picture, we knew she needed out ASAP! She was so thin at only 25 lbs, and now after a lot of TLC from her foster, she is 40 lbs. Upon arriving on transport, she greeted everyone with tail wagging and kisses, she knew she was now safe. We think she might be Border Collie/Pit mix and about 1 yr old. After arriving at her foster home, she got to learn what being a puppy was all about, learning how to play and what a dog toy is. She has blossomed into a beautiful, happy, affectionate, active pup, who loves to go on walks. Minnie is not a fan of the crate, but doesn't need one since she does great ... (Read More)without one. Cuddling up with her foster family at bed time, is one of her favorite things. Since she was an outside dog, she had to learn about housebreaking. She enjoys, is playful with and friendly with other dogs. Now that she has been shown what life should be like, she is looking for her forever family to continue showing her what love is. If interested in meeting Minnie or for more information please go to www.alwaysroom4morepaws.com to read about our adoption process. Here you will also find the application to fill out and send back. *Breed and age are a guess. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-07-04-00576Macie (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Macie is guessed to be a young dog, born around September of 2015. She came to us with another dog who may be her sister and they both had mange. She has since recovered from mange, but she is left with severe social issues. We think she might have lived under a porch or similar type situation for her first 4 months of life- during the critical socialization period. She is feral- avoiding human contact and oftentimes defecating or urinating in fear if approached. Through several months of work we have finally got her eating canned food out of our fingers. In consult with our veterinarian and a behaviorist, she is also taking a low dose ... (Read More)of anti anxiety medication. We would like to find a foster or foster-to-adopt home for her that can dedicate more one-on-one time to helping her recover. The ideal candidate would have another confident, well-adjusted dog who can show Macie the ropes. A home where Macie can have a safe space to herself - like a laundry room or large bathroom with tile flooring- would be desired. A quiet home with a fenced in yard and someone with a lot of patience are also desired. For more information about Macie, please contact us at info@perfectpooches.org. If you are interested in adopting, please complete an adoption application, which can be found on our website at www.perfectpooches.org under the Adoption Process tab. All dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccines, heartworm tested (age appropriate), fecal tested and/or dewormed, and microchipped. (Less)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    This lovely gal is Susan Poochie, a striking, mixed breed dog suspected to be part bully breed and possibly Border Collie. Poochie weighs around 45 pounds and is approximately two years young. Poochie has excellent house manners; she is already housebroken and is has free roam of the house while her temporary foster is away from home. Susan Poochie is very loving, affectionate, and friendly with everyone she meets. She seeks attention from her people and enjoys playing with them whenever possible. Because Poochie is energetic, and needs a little work with jumping up on people when she meets them, she is probably not the best candidate for ... (Read More)a home with young children. Poochie seems to be best as an only dog. Poochie has been examined by a licensed veterinarian, inoculated against diseases, been tested for parasites, dewormed, and placed on monthly heartworm preventative. She will be spayed and microchipped the last week of May now that she is healthy.

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.
