    Montana is an 11yr old border collie mix who is in desperate need of a new home. Montana has always been a sweet and even a bit shy dog. She has always gotten along with our 3 dogs and there has never been an issue with other dogs she meets. We take her for walks, to the dog park and on hiking and camping trips. In march of 2016 I got a service dog, they always played together and would even curl up together and nap. A new neighbors had moved in about 2 yrs ago and they have 2 dogs. The dogs would bark and chases each other through the fence. We suggested letting the dogs meet and play and the neighbors said that was a bad idea because ... (Read More)one of their dogs is 'kinda mean'. We eventually noticed one of their dogs was trying to get under the fence. We blocked the bottom of the fence to keep their dog out. Late last fall the dogs suddenly went nuts. We headed outside and Montana came running in the dog door and her muzzle was cut and bleeding. When I got out side I notice one board of the fence was down and the neighbors dog was aggressively biting, snarling and trying to tear another board down to get into the yard. The fence was repaired however if the neighbors dog was outside Montana would get very agitated. We would call her back into the house and she usually would run right inside. A few weeks after the initial incident we called Montana because getting agitated by the neighbors dog and she spun around and attacked my service dog. The service dog took off and got away from Montana. This happened a handful of times over the next several months and eventually the service dog started fighting back. The service dogs training is for her to ignore and to not be aggressive but she has to protect herself and now starts to get agitated at times if other dogs are nearby . In the last 2 months this has escalated greatly. Montana has attacked the service dog in the house a couple times and the service dog (a German shepherd) started fighting back and neither one will back down. This is usually unprovoked and unexpected. The last 3 incidents we notice Montana is going directly for the service dogs throat. We have to keep them separated the last several weeks and Montana now spends most of her day in a kennel. Montana has tried to attack through the kennel. This has occurred several times in last 3 days. Montana has NOT acted aggressively toward any of our other dogs and even runs away from a 3 month old puppy. She ONLY targets my service dog. Montana's behavior has clearly started affecting my service dog and her training. There was a lot of time and money invested in the service dog and now we have to retrain her because she is developing negative behaviors that are unacceptable in a service dog because of Montana (really because of the dog that attacked Montana). First and foremost we can not have Montana ruin my service dog. We are also very concerned that if there is another fight there will be serious injury or worse(the shepherd is bigger and much stronger than Montana) We have tried everything we know or that has been suggested by trainers and nothing is working, the situation is only getting worse. We have talked to or worked with almost a dozen trainers and contacted nearly 2 dozen 'rescue's'. Half of the 'behavior' trainers have stated that some techniques will take time and they don't understand that this is negatively affecting the service dog because they dont deal with training service dogs. The other half, the service dog trainers, 2 vets and several rescues are telling us we need to remove Montana (to include the majority telling us to put her down) from the situation immediately because the longer this goes the more likely the service dogs negative behaviors will become 'permanent' and the more stress this puts on Montana. (Of Note: I have no control over the neighbors dog which IS where the problem starts.) We have tried to find Montana a new home with family or friends. We contacted several rescues who will NOT take her because she has attacked another dog or can not because they don't have space. The local animal shelter stated because of her age most likely they will just end up putting her down and suggested we go to the same rescues (by name) who wont take her. My wife cant handle seeing her in a kennel all the time and is insisting she is just going to take her to the shelter to at least give her a chance of finding her a new home since the only other option we have been given is to have her put down.

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