Rescue Me ID: 17-03-17-00275Sheena (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis, Blind, Malnourished 

    Sheena is a 15-year-old, very frail and thin, female black and white shepherd-mix looking for a loving guardian as a hospice situation. This senior lady was dropped off at Chicago Animal Control with a younger Dachshund sibling. They were separated when a rescue took the Dachshund but not the senior shepherd. Luckily Sheena was taken in by the Famous Fido Rescue. She has proven to be just fine with other dogs as well as cats. Poor Sheena has had two bouts of pancreatitis since she's arrived in rescue. Rescue staff and volunteers have nursed her back from each illness and now she eats mostly boiled chicken and rice, although she also loves ... (Read More)cheese. Her arthritis slows her down. She is visually impaired and easily startled so she may bite if surprised or frightened, so she's best in a home with tolerant dog-lovers without children. If you'd like to make a donation towards her care and the other special Famous Foster rescues, please click here: https://www.paypal.com/donate/?token=-x2Q2RPzX4vCwQdc9cSu7Vzf53GcLXZJKgskm4-iff6c8VF4_sSttP65ITmce2U0UFgPh0 If you are interested in fostering or adopting Sheena, please fill in the online application at http://famousfidorescue.com/rescueforms/machform/view.php?id=26727 and follow up by calling Gloria at 773-907-0305. Her adoption fee of $250 benefits the rescued pets of Famous Fido's. Sheena is at the Famous Fido Rescue, 3124 W. Irving Park Road at Troy Street in Chicago, Illinois 60618. Hours are by appointment only. Please e-mail Gloria at fido@famousfidorescue.com (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-03-16-00245Holly (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Deaf 

    If you dream of a dog who has the wisdom of the old and the zest of the young, it's possible you dream of Holly! Holly is a senior who is absolutely super. She's a 12 year old Border Collie mix who is very petite at 25 pounds. Holly arrived at ACL from a local animal control facility where we saw her sad face and knew we had to help her out. When Holly got here, she was very shut down - she didn't want to interact, go for walks, or play. It was clear she was struggling. Turns out, Holly had a very painful dental infection that was likely taking up all of her energy to deal with! After a dental cleaning that removed the broken teeth and some ... (Read More)time in foster care, Holly has really turned around. Her foster mom says she has more energy than her own younger dog! Holly loves to go for walks, and her favorite thing in the world is to run around the backyard and get silly. She's great with other dogs - she doesn't seem to notice them at all! - and she'd do fine with cats, too. Holly is deaf due to age, but she's very responsive to facial expressions and hand gestures. She needs to be watched a little more closely than a younger dog for effective housetraining, but she does great with crating and a schedule. Holly has really opened up and overcome a lot of obstacles - we just want her to live out her golden years in peace and comfort, with some play time thrown in! (Less)

    Rock is a playful, intense and intelligent, 11 or 12-year-old, male Border Collie looking for a loving guardian. Rock came into rescue with his ribs showing due to neglect. His front left leg bows but we don't know if he was born that way or whether it broke and healed like that on its own. In either case, it doesn't appear to bother him. Rock lives to be loved ad play ball. He's fine with other dogs, but has his limits '| he'll snap when he's had enough. His adoption fee of $250 benefits the rescued dogs of Famous Fido Rescue. He is a healthy senior, up-to-date on vaccinations, neutered and micro-chipped. To meet and possibly adopt ...

Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    CHECK OUT THIS BEAUTIFUL GIRL!!! Sable is a very unusually colored dog. She is quite beautiful. The best way to describe her is a border collie with a sable shepherd coat. She showed up at a farm for a few months and once the horses were moved she started wandering so the farm owners sent her to the pound. Sweet Sable gets along well with other dogs and cats. She also reportedly gets along fine with children and horses. She is a very high energy dog and will need a large FENCED yard to run. We would love it if she also had a friend to play with in her new yard. We think she would be the perfect candidate for agility training! Although Sable ... (Read More)is heartworm positive she will soon be done with her heartworm treatment and ready to go to her forever home. If you are interested in Sable, be sure to email Christine@Howlin4help.com to request an application. Sable is approximately 2 years old. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-10-09-00210Deacon (male)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    *MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Are you ready for a lifetime of fun and adventures with a devoted canine companion? Do you need a buddy with whom to watch sports on tv? Well, I would like to apply for the job. My name is Deacon, and I am a 1-year-old border collie mix; lucky for you, I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am a pretty good looking dude if I say so myself. My coat is decorated with caramel and white swirls, and I have handsome hazel eyes. And I am about 40 pounds of lively love! My friends at Fetching Tails ... (Read More)Foundation saved me from Chicago Animal Care and Control. Ever since my foster mommy took me into her home, I have been having a total blast playing with her female pittie mix Rey (who is a Fetching Tails alumna! She tells me all the time in our doggie language that I will find a great forever home for myself just like she did!) We love to run around in the backyard together and play together inside, and play with our toys and chew bones together, basically playing together as much as possible. I love to play and be active, so I would love a forever family that likes to be active, too; I could be a great workout buddy if you need a friend on long walks. It would also be amazing to have another dog friend; I think a canine companion about my size and energy level would be a perfect fit! We can keep each other entertained and be best friends forever. And I am serious about watching sports on tv: it doesn't matter what sport, if there is a game on the telly I like to get right up in front of it and keep an eye on the ball. So when we are all done going on fun adventures and playing, I would be the happiest dog alive if we could watch a highlights reel or two on ESPN together. I have great house manners and I am learning even more all the time! I am potty trained, and I do fine resting in my crate while foster mommy goes to work. She says I am very good at letting my people know when I have to go outside and 'take care of business.' I know a few basic commands, including sit, stay, and give paw. I love to learn, and Fetching Tails Foundation likes to encourage all adopters to attend training courses with their new pups, so I think it would be a lot of fun if we could take a few classes together. I love to go on long walks, but I can get excited and pull a little strong, so maybe we could work on leash skills together in doggie school? More than anything, I would love a family that is up for fun and adventures like I am, and a family that will love me for life! If I sound like I could be the fun-loving, active, spunky (And did I mention cuddly and affectionate? Because I am definitely a cuddlebug, too!) sports-junkie for you, please get in touch with my foster mommy at Fetching Tails and tell her you are ready to watch the World Series with me! Love, Deacon If interested please fill out an application on our website at www.fetchingtailsfoundation.org or if any questions please email us! Adoption Requirements: *Be at least 21 years of age *Have the knowledge and agreement of all adults living in the household *Have approval from owner of residence (written in lease) *Have a valid ID with current address *Be approved as a suitable adoptive home by Fetching Tails Foundation *Be prepared to make a lifetime commitment *Lives in 50 mile radius of Itasca within the Illinois border Adoption Fees: Senior dog - 8 years and up, $75 Adult or young dog - 6 months to 7 years, $250 Puppies - under 6 months, $350 (Less)

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: 16-06-10-00594Susan Poochie (female)

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. ADOPTION or Foster APPLICATIONS are available for online completion and submission through our website - www.acaringplacehs.org. (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.

lnteresting Border Collie Trivia Low-Cost Illinois Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Border Collies stare down cows and are sometimes said to hypnotize them. Border Collies are used as guide dogs in the Netherlands. Border Collies are considered by some to be the most intelligent breed of dog.
