|Rescue Me ID: 14-04-13-00345Gracie (female)|
Gracie came to us through a relative who found her neglected and scared. She is a sweet girl who needs a patient and loving home...someone who understands her breed and able to get her to submit to them without causing her to be aggressive/defensive. She is a smart girl/quick learner, but is stubborn and can grovel quite a bit. She responds best with LOTS of praise and love...and a few snuggles, too. She does well with other dogs, but does think she is always the Alpha. Does not play well with cats, I would not leave her alone with one. She is very protective over children, even to the point of sitting on them if she feels the need. We are unable to keep her with us as our landlord will not allow her. She needs to go immediately, but we did fall in love with her very quickly. We have been 'hiding' her here...trying our best to find her a place to live...I really don't want to see her at the pound. I know someone will adopt her from there, but I truly feel like she needs someone who knows Border Collies. We are hoping that she will find a family that will give her the love she deserves...and truly needs. She is house broken and will go to the door or nudge your arm when she needs out. I have had to leave her at home alone for several hours and she didn't 'go' inside or chew anything up. Having said that, she does not like to be alone. She will come lay in your lap (though she is much too big)while you are sitting on the couch. She does sit and give 'high fives' and seems to learn tricks easily...if she is in the mood. She does not like strangers and barks until she feels she has said enough. So, she will need someone able to correct some behaviors. She does use a leash, but does not walk nicely...she likes to pull you along. She loves to run and could really use a place that has lots of space. She is touchy about her hind haunches, I am guessing someone kicked or hit her there. She will let me pet her there now, but it did take some time. She is also prone to matting behind her ears, which I try to cut out when she gets a bath. I am not sure of her vaccinations, but I do know that she has been spayed. Again, she is a sweet girl...I am hoping someone out there will love her like we do. (Less)

Gabbie is our fluffy puppy (with extremely soft fur). She's a small breed, extremely quiet until she hears a doorbell, but generally after you tell her to stop she will. She is housebroken, leash trained, knows basic commands, and even a few interesting tricks. She's HW Neg and on a monthly HW preventative. Extremely lovable and friendly to all. Never been around cats or young children.

|Rescue Me ID: 14-03-12-00499Susie (female)|
Susie is a beautiful little lady with a very loving disposition. She is about 7 or 8 years old, and adopted us after we let her in the house during a thunderstorm (she was our neighbor's outside dog, and we have made her an inside dog). Our neighbor doesn't mind that we are giving her away, as they have other dogs. We have rescued a few other dogs, and Susie is now lower in the pecking order, and sometimes gets edged out. She really deserves better! She needs to be in a home as an only dog so that she can receive the attention she craves. Susie can be needy, but obeys fairly well, does well on a leash and comes when called. She is completely house trained and does not chew. The only 'bad' traits are her neediness and the fact that she is deathly afraid of thunderstorms. Susie is looking for a new forever home, with a family who will lavish her with attention in a nice indoor home, with a fenced yard, or with someone who will take her on regular walks. (Less)

sweet sweet angel that loves to play. Very smart. can differentiate between red, green, and blue toys if asked. Newly divorced and he isn't getting the attention or love he deserves. He is used to someone playing ball with him everyday. He knows he is a lap dog and sleeps in bed at night.

|Rescue Me ID: 13-10-28-00293Toby (male)|
Hey!!! I am Toby!!! I am only 6 months old and I love EVERYONE! I am a border collie (maybe lab mix). I haven't shown any herding instinct yet but I LOVE fetch and besides the letting go part I had it figured out after the first try! I am already learning sit and as you can see I love to jump and catch stuff in the air. I get along GREAT with other dogs and love running around outside. I learned today I am no fan of baths... but look how clean and shiny I am now : )

|Rescue Me ID: 13-08-18-00102Tippy (female)|
Tippy needs a job and a home. I will be moving out of state and will not be able to take her. She shows lots of signs of being a 'herding' dog. She has always been inside at night but outside during the day. She's lovable but also protective. She needs a loving home with a job.

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