Rescue Me ID: 16-08-19-00218Katie (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Unfortunately sometimes PFP doesn't get it right on the first time around. That is the case here. Her name is Katie and she is 5 months old. She was adopted into a home with kids ranging from 4 to 10 years old. It is reported that she jumps on the kids, nips at them and the kids were terrified of her. We were told she should never have been adopted into a home with children. At 8 weeks old when she left us we saw no reason she could not be with children. In fact, after doing temperament check on her again yesterday - we still see no reason not to adopt her to a home with children but until she is trained the time with young children ... (Read More)will have to be monitored and her behavior corrected. Does she need training? Absolutely. Is she all puppy? Absolutely. She needs a strong pack leader in her human. She needs to learn that she is not in charge. Fortunately she is still a baby and her behavior for jumping and nipping can certainly be broken. We know mom was a Shepherd mix but as Katie gets older she sure appears to be more Border Collie than Shepherd mix. She does seem to know the command of sit and while having her on a leash she seems to do fairly well. We believe she is pretty much housebroken. This pretty girl needs exercise and training to get rid of the bad behavior that has now become a habit. Alternatively, she needs a job using what appears to be her natural herding instincts. She gets along well with other dogs. She was not tested with cats. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-06-05-00514Bravo (male)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Bravo is a sweet and shy Beagle mix who is 2 years old. He weighs about 35 pounds. Bravo walks well on a leash. He is shy, so he walks a step or two behind you. He is very loving and sleeps in bed with his foster mom. He is very well behaved when left home alone, so crating is not necessary. Bravo is a gentle soul who is looking for a home that will build his confidence and show him the joys of being a treasured family member. Bravo came from a hoarder home and lived with at least 20 other dogs and very little human contact. Bravo may take some time to warm up to new people, but once he trusts, he will bond quickly to those who are ... (Read More)patient and loving. Bravo has grown leaps and bounds and loves to explore, roll in the grass, is learning about toys and enjoys a good belly rub. Bravo's forever home should have another dog and a fenced yard. Bravo loves to run and feel the wind. He is still learning about fetch, but hopefully that will come with time. He would not enjoy a home with small children. Little ones with high pitched voices and sudden movements would scare him. Bravo is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. He is not quite fully house trained so will continue to need training and guidance in that area. For more information about Bravo you can contact Roxanne at rox@furfunrescue.org or call 319-929-6657. To start the adoption process please fill out the application on our website: www.furfunrescue.org. Adopters within an hour drive of Cedar Rapids, Iowa only. Indoor homes only. Adoption donation $200. (Less)

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