|Rescue Me ID: 13-06-18-00576Mick (male)|
I am fostering a three year old Border Collie. He is full blooded and is from Sanders Border Collies in Tippecanoe County. Most have seen this 'kennel' in the news. This male is a full brother to my male Border Collie. The people who previously owned him stated they should have done more research on the breed before they got him. They were going to take him to the shelter. They picked him up when he was eight weeks old. He had a horrible virus which caused him diarrhea and after a few days in their house he became an outdoor dog. They fenced a portion of their yard and that is where Mick stayed most of the time. The breed was a little too challenging for them. However, their children taught Mick some great tricks. They expressed they could not get him to walk on a leash. I have had no problems with this. Actually, I have taught him to heel and stay still when I stop. He is not good with bicycles or strollers. He wants to eat the tires . I am working with him on this. He is afraid of cars and will lie down if one approaches. He is good riding in the car but really does not enjoy it yet. I am crate training him and working on potty training in hopes of an indoor home. I took him to the vet. He is current on all vaccinations and gets neutered on June 19th. He is a very good dog. Very intelligent. My female Australian Shepherd is very aggressive toward him. She is 15 years old. So, I am hoping to find him a good home as soon as possible. A fenced yard would be the best for him and someone who understands the breed. Please forward to anyone you think may be interested. Contact me anytime for more information. (Less)

Cerro Torre is a beautiful black and white German Shepherd. She is extremely loyal, sweet, and loving and just wants to be around people all the time. The shelter I adopted her from (a year and a half ago) thought that she is a GSD/Border Collie mix. They also thought she had been abused, as she is blind in her right eye and also used to cower at loud noises (but no longer does). Today, Cerro Torre is a fully house-trained , crate trained, and well trained dog. She knows sit, down, wait, and target. She is a smaller GSD, weighing in just under 55 lbs. She wears a head collar when we go on walks and does wonderfully. She is great on car rides and loves putting her head outside the window (only if we're going under 40 mph of course). She has been trained using positive clicker training and does exceptionally well with target and her mat work. She is incredibly intelligent and picked up new training faster than all of the other dogs in the obedience classes we have taken. When I am home, she sleeps for almost the entire day. She loves to be chased around the back yard, but yet her energy level is very low compared to a full-breed Border Collie. Her blind eye doesn't seem to bother her much, but she will run into the occasional piece of furniture. She is also very protective. If someone rings the doorbell or knocks, she will be the first to let you know by barking. She does have a slight initial fear of new men, but she always gets used to them over about fifteen minutes and then is completely fine with them after that. Cerro has a big prey drive, so she does not do well with other cats or dogs. Despite this, she is an absolute sweetheart. She is very people oriented and would rather be inside with us than outside with other dogs or anything else. Like I mentioned, she sleeps the majority of the day away on her dog bed. However, there is one problematic behavioral issue that Cerro has that a potential owner should be fully aware of. Whenever I leave, she whines, howls, and barks horribly in her crate. This ranges from just 1 minute to over 20 minutes- it just depends on the day. I have consulted a professional behavioral trainer and we have been working on the issue for about a month now and have just introduced medication to help relax her. I have to move into an apartment because I start medical school this fall. If I can't get this behavior to stop by August 1st, I will have to give her away (or face possible eviction). Thus, I would like to find someone who is a good fit for her now in case this does have to become a reality. I absolutely love Cerro Torre to death, and this is my last resort. Please only contact me if you are very serious about Cerro Torre. I will not give her to someone who lives in an apartment or does not have enough time to devote to her (training, playing, etc.). Preferably, Cerro would go to a home with a large fenced yard, no cats, experience with GSD dogs, experience training dogs, no history of giving dogs to kill shelters, and with a family so she has people around her for the majority of the day. Also, it's not just the person that has to fit- Cerro must be comfortable with anyone interested in adopting her and I must approve of the home she is going to (yes, that means I will require a home visit along with several references, including from your current vet). If you can get past the whining in her crate, or live somewhere where it won't disturb your neighbors (aka an apartment or condo), then Cerro is the perfect dog. She is just an absolute angel and deserves the best home possible. Thank you and please let me know if you have any questions or would like to schedule a time to meet Cerro Torre. (Less)

These 8 week old newfoundland / border collie puppies are going to be fantastic family members! They are friendly and playful and well socialized ... and who can resist that puppy breath! The adoption fee for each puppy is $200; they are spayed/neutered, microchipped and current on vaccinations.

This handsome boy is part Border Collie, part Red Heeler. He has plenty of energy to spare and is extremely affectionate. He needs lots and lots of exercise and loves to run. He has cage aggression so he cannot be crated, which is not a problem if he gets enough exercise. He would be a great dog for someone who loves to take long walks and/or had a yard to run in. It breaks my heart to give him up, but I know he is not happy in our household. We can't give him the exercise he needs.

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Border Collie in Indiana|
Border Collie Dogs can make good pets in Indiana 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.
