Rescue Me ID: 18-04-20-00389grace (female)

Border Collie    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Pics coming soon. 9 year old female tri color border collie named Grace. Black/white/grey with one moon eye. Very pretty and she thinks she is still 2 or 3. Runs and plays like a young dog and loves people and their attention more than anything else. Great personality and will admonish you with a hyena like chorus when you get home if you leave her. No known issues other than she is a little near sighted and if playing with a stuffed animal might make contact with your hand on accident. Tennis balls will mesmerize her. She is from a busy home where there was a divorce and now she resides in a place that is incompatible to her. The other dog ... (Read More)is much younger and bullies her. Very svelt 40 pounds and loves to walk on a leash. I had her trained off leash but only under close supervision in open areas. She will run to greet new people and not listen at times so this is not a good idea unless you live in the country and watch she doesn't wander off. She knows, sit, stay, shake, wait, 'in the house', off, and a host of other commands. She picks up new commands quickly as she is so oriented to please people. Great dog with no food aggression etc. Can be a little quirky when meeting new dogs, but a tennis ball takes care of that and draws her attention. She does adapt to other dogs but her deceased sister was very dominant and bullied her, so she greets new dogs with some apprehension but will adapt to most easily. A great dog I just cannot have in my current residence. She would do well with a full busy family, or a single person. A 100% with her owner would be a dream for her. She does like car rides although she gets pawsy sometimes as she is anxious to find out where the new adventure is. Again she is completely healthy and weighs 40 lbs. I will get her shots and such updated before she is adopted. I will interview you as you are interviewing grace. I would prefer a forever home, but a really good foster with references from a local group would be ok also. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-04-12-00125Rocky (male)

Border Collie    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    Rocky is very energetic and sweet. He has stranger anxiety and exhibits aggressive behavior when excited or fearful. He may be able to overcome this with behavioral training. He has nipped a jogger, therefore our homeowners insurance says he must go or we lose our insurance. He is a loving loyal friend and is a great companion. My heart is breaking.

Rescue Me ID: 18-03-25-00038Sharon (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Sharon is a 1-2 year old and weighs about 45 lbs. Our best guess is she is a Border Collie / Boxer mix. She is potty trained, crate trained, and relaxed in the bath tub. Sharon is very loving, outgoing, and has got to be one of the friendliest dogs out there. She is dog friendly, but we recommend a home with larger dogs and a home with no cats. She is a very active dog who loves to run, have fun, and have a job to do. She will play fetch during the day and chase a laser pointer at night. She requires durable toys (ie. ropes, rubber, Kong, antler, etc.). Her happy-go-lucky personality is infectious; no matter your mood, she will cheer you up. ... (Read More)Sharon LOVES to give kisses. She is a love bug and craves affection. Sharon is very smart and highly trainable. Although she is incredibly friendly, Sharon would do best in a home with kids over 10 as she is a little mouthy and jumps up when she gets excited. Because of her energy level she requires a fully fenced yard. Her foster parents are working on her leash manners and basic obedience (she's catching on quickly). She currently knows sit, down, shake, touch, and spin. If you think this amazing girl is a fit for you, please send an inquiry today! Sharon is fully vetted and microchipped! (Less)

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