    Hobbes is an extremely sweet, high-energy, cuddly and loving, 29-pound, 18-month-old, male Rat Terrier/Border Collie-Mix looking for a loving guardian. When you first meet adorable little Hobbes, you hear a growl and you take a step back. He does the same thing to dogs when he first meets them. The funny thing is, he really loves everyone. 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.
