Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Hannah is a 2 year old border collie/possibly Akita mix. She weighs about 55 pounds. She is submissive and timid, but will stick by you once she gets to know you. She is young and active and needs everything such as house training, obedience training, and socialization. She is great with dogs of all sizes. She loves her 'cave'. Hannah must have a fenced yard. No kids under 12 years of age. No cats, but another dog would be helpful. She is highly unsocialized to the point of being feral. You would be taking on a long-term project. Note from her foster mom: She is a very sweet girl who likes to be close to her family. She came into ... (Read More)rescue 18 months ago%A0as an older puppy very%A0unsocialized and almost feral. She will take a few weeks before she will let you come close to her. She would be considered a flight risk at this point until she bonds with you. She is not really leash trained as she has much too much anxiety being connected full time to a human. She spins and darts and tries to chew her way off the leash. She darts between your legs if she is comfortable with you. She has come a long way! She is doing great with the volunteers, loves to be loved on and stroked. She loves to play chase and is a fairly active girl. She is happiest outside in the fenced yard or loose in the house. Although she is crated trained, she prefers her freedom.

Rescue Me ID: 17-09-04-00473Jack (male)

Border Collie    Age: Young Adult

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

    Jack is a 4 year old Border Collie, with a strong 'eye' and smart as they come. He has been through multiple advanced obedience classes and knows probably over 50 words. He's been neutered and tutored. Jack loves balls, Frisbee, herding ball, and all his stuffed toys He is extremely toy motivated. He likes adult people and he tolerates other dogs and cats. He isn't aggressive - he just prefers a person with a tennis ball to playing with a fellow dog. He's a great hiker and running companion. He tries to herd Doxie our cat, but the old adage regarding herding cats applies'| When we adopted Jack at 7 months he was completely ... (Read More)unsocialized. He was owned by an elderly disabled couple who lived out on property and they didn't have energy, time, or money for a puppy such as Jack. He had never been to the vet, never worn a collar, wasn't house trained, lived outside, was intact and was almost feral when we got him. We had lost our 14 year old Aussie the prior spring - also a rescue - and felt we were up for the challenge. Jack still guards his food and his space (dog bed, truck bed, back seat) - still. We have never been able to extinguish this behavior. He also will not allow anyone to groom him, especially his hind quarters - without snapping. We groom him muzzled. He has snapped (bitten) both my husband and myself in the past. We recognize that Jack should not be unsupervised around children as the guarding behavior is problematic. Jack needs a supervised, active environment without children and with owner(s) who appreciate his active nature and strong natural instincts and can maintain good boundaries with Jack. (Less)

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