Rescue Me ID: 14-09-15-00277Sophie (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Senior

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

    My name is Ryan. I am the mom of a 14 year old Boarder Collie Mix named Sophie. My husband I rescued Sophie from a couple 3 years ago. She was living in a basement 9-10 hours without any one to let her out or pay attention to her. The husband had rescued Sophie as a puppy and when his new wife's pug died she just never got attached to Sophie and really wanted her gone and out of their home. I was so excited to find a senior dog that was trained and past the puppy stage. Since she has been in our lives we have gotten married, moved into a great house with a yard for her and now we are expecting our first child. Sophie has been such a joy ... (Read More)to have in our lives, she makes me laugh frequently, sadly as she has aged in such a short period we are not able to give her all the time she deserves. I am pregnant and due in a few weeks and Sophie is showing signs that the change of another person in the house will not go well. She has survived Cushing Disease, she has poor vision and has selective hearing :). Sophie needs a home that has carpet so she can get around, she has trouble getting around on hard surfaces. She is on low pain meds for a arthritis in her hind legs. She would best be suited with someone that is home all day, she needs to go out about every 4 hours during the day - but does do pretty well at night. Despite all of her ailments she does like to act like a puppy and do a play stance and can be very deceiving about her age. I love Sophie so much but I know that once the baby gets here she will not get the attention she needs. It breaks my heart to send you this email, but I hope you can help. I can send picture if needed. Do not have one at the time of sending this application. (Less)

    Boone and his sister, Sukki, were rescued as part of a litter by me 7 years ago. I adopted the other 5 and kept these two. They are super protective of me, but now that we have a baby, they are worse and growl and snap towards her.

We give them herbal flower essence daily for anxiety aggression, even tried Rx Prozac. They need to be happy and I want them to live out their lives having fun,not being gated away from family.

    Meet Raven!!! She is 100% puppy love and wants nothing more than love of her own! At approximately 6 months old she is the perfect age to start training and teaching her the rules. She is very smart and listens attentively. Being a little shy right now she will gently walk up to her foster mom, sit down and reach out gently with her paw to hold her arm. It is precious as she just wants loves. She was found out in a field with Quinn and Simone fending for herself but in traditional doggy manner - she holds no grudges! She may get to be about 30 lbs fully grown. She is brand new to rescue (7/17/14) and will be ready for her furever home in ... (Read More)about 3 weeks. Now knowing her past best guess is she will need some house training. Get your application in now - this girl won't last long We are a Texas Rescue but will use Rescue Road Trips to deliver her to the Virginia area if we find her forever home there. Her adoption fee includes the transport to Virginia. She is a darling puppy and will go fast in our Rescue. Apply at www.krrtx.org (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-16-00618Helen (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Adult


    Last year, a forlorn girl anxiously waited to see what was next. One of forty odd dogs found by their mistress' body, Helen couldn't comprehend the structure and close human contact in the rescue environment. Now? Helen accepted grooming and bathing over the summer. Her confidence on lead has grown exponentially. She rooms with Joseph, one of the forty or so, and shows her new found confidence. For now, Helen only comes to events when requested.

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

lnteresting Border Collie Trivia Low-Cost Virginia Spay & Neuter Clinics
    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.
