She seems to know she was rescued and is now waiting for 'her' family to come get her. Is that you?

Rescue Me ID: 14-04-15-00376Nadia (female)

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)

Rescue Me ID: 14-04-04-00549Honey (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Honey is a very beautiful, sweet, energetic and fun six-year-old, 30-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! And, she jumps up on people, so she needs some training and is probably best without young children in the home. Honey already knows how to sit on command and is doing great with her housebreaking and crate-training. She's is currently ... (Read More)overcoming her fear of eliminating in front of people, so she's not accustomed to urinating on leash yet. Honey is healthy, spayed, micro-chipped and vaccinated for rabies, distemper and bordetella. To meet and possibly adopt her, please contact Ursula at Ursulaspets2u@aol.com or 312-315-9748. Her adoption fee of $250 benefits rescued pets. She is currently living in a foster home in Chicago. She is looking for a home with a fenced in yard with a secure six-foot high fence to keep her safe. (Less)

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

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
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, we pulled Zeus and Sammy at the same time, both their favorite dogs. He is energetic when doing something. He ... (Read More)traveled great in the vehicle for a long distance to get here 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 does excellent on a leash. I wish we had more time to spend with teaching him because he learned the basic pattern here 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, or jogging or playing with in the back yard. He can jump a normal height fence so going out with him to potty or using a 6 foot or covered kennel to potty in is needed. He does bark if just left outside in a kennel, but now quiets when told. He has come such a long way from when he first arrived! 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 is now good with most other dogs. At first he just had no idea how to play with them. He is indifferent to cats that rub on him but will chase them if they run. Contract and vet reference 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.

    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 used by police for narcotics and bomb detection as well as search and rescue work.
