Rescue Me ID: 15-12-07-00690Nudger (male)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Nudger is a neutered 1.5-2 year old Border Collie Australian Shepherd mix. He's such a handsome pup. He was found with his two siblings in a cornfield a few months back. He is not as socialized as we would like so when new dogs approach him he can shy away or even voice his unsureness. He is a quick energetic learner. He would do best in an active home that has patients and willing to work with him. With some time and basic training he will make a great addition to any family. We're desperately looking for a foster home near by or definitely a forever home wherever that will show him the love and time he deserves.

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.
