Rescue Me ID: 16-11-27-00022Tip (male)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Tip: 2 yr Male BC/Aussie Activity Level: Sports Companion/Active Companion Diet: Instinct Duck & Pea/Red Meat Raw & Veggies Special Talent: Sit Pretty w Front Paw Balance; Clicker Trained/Responsive/Whistle Responsive Training: Heavy Socialization/Fear w Positive Boundaries Experienced Dog/BC Owner Potentials Tip is a striking boy that is more private dog with strangers and affection. Once he feels comfortable he will open up his trust and really enjoy his time with his people and he is super smart. He is ready to bound outside for fun times or leash activities, needs lots of room to run and play with a 6 foot wooden fence, human break ... (Read More)during a work day. He can be overly stimulated using his herding mouth but tricks and redirection help this young man know the direction his human is asking for. He does focus on a variety of balls as he runs and explores things, actually easy on the leash but strong if something catches his interest and totally excited when we run and play in a few hill hike/bike trails enjoying commands for jogging as well. Tip is more private about his comfort level for love/petting and is working on this as he does enjoy our fun hugs and makes eye contact. Tip is looking for an experienced dog person who understands the sensitivities of the Border Collie and may not be suitable for off leash. You see his litter came to my rescue July 4th 2014 at 4 months of age which is a prime life experience for any dog. Tip overcame a lot of fears and had some imprinting from the owner reaching/grabbing all the 8 puppies running free on her 3 acres in Louisiana. He is still learning about strangers and how they should approach him for the best positive experience. He is not suitable for cats and children/grandchildren as he is scared of people with fast movements and can fear bark it's just not a fit for him. I do feel he would benefit from another dog from in the home that would be his activity level and enjoy fun BC/Aussie play and or another close knit group of dog friends he can enjoy weekly play time with; crates nicely with a break during a work day, a 6 foot fence is required, and follow his diet as his colon is super sensitive and all of his training/diet have been laid out for the next journey in his life! If an out of area applicant would be a potential match it is required they come to Houston to meet Tip staying a few days to further the matching process. Application required, home visit required, donation $325. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-27-00019Expresso (male)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Courtesy Posting This Border Collie is Not Part of This Group Please Contact: Peter: Petr@hal-pc.org for more information . If you want to know more about Expresso please email Petr@hal-pc.org for more informationand introduce yourself and the lifestyle you will offer him to . Meet Espresso! This handsome healthy 7 yrs young, medium-sized Border Collie (38 lbs) sweetheart is looking for a new home due to both of his owners having health issues. His owners love him dearly but are worried that if something happened to them hewould end up in a shelter for months on end or worse something we could not bear and it's Expresso's time to have a ... (Read More)new journey in life. He is a energetic, bright, happy, playful and intelligent dog who loves his ownersand is very focused on them. He can be cautious in new situations and takes a little bit of time to check things out and read his surroundings. Expresso does alert bark to announce people at the door never continuing the bark. He has lived indoors and is very well-trained. He loves chasing squirrels, going for frequent walks, and would make an excellent flyball or agility companion. Espresso has not been around children much in the past few years and we don't feel smaller children would be appropriate (8 and up calm), and has not lived with cats but he has been friendly with a neighborhood cat but still may be uncertain of kitties better with dog savvy types. He has had obedience training and understands sit, stay, down, up, wait, leave it, take, and no. He just returned from 21 days at Shel-Mar Kennels Dog Obedience School awesome for teaching dogs. He is great on the leash! Espresso likes most other dogs, but it can depend on the situation and how the other dogs act towards him. Generally, he is more comfortable with female dogs. Leash introductions help him when meeting new dogs and the training center feels this is the most positive way for all dogs to meet before a play date. He does enjoy mingling at a dog park that is not overly busy. There is an application and home visit to adopt Expresso. His adoption donation is $200 and donated back to At Home Houston Border Collie. (Less)

Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament

    Drew is the kind of Border Collie that reads my mind with his eyes, attention to my body language, and wicked smart. He can be a hyper fellow who loves to work/think at home and on the leash, cuddly with great curls and an awesome air kiss hug trick. This pup just enjoys life so much and loves to play, great with any training I give him mostly in our environment incorporating that into play in the yard, on the leash, special toys enjoying new play games.

Drew overcame a lot of fears and had some imprinting from the owner reaching/grabbing all the 8 puppies running free on her 3 acres in Louisiana. He is still learning about strangers and how they should approach him for the best positive experience so he can play with them and give those amazing kisses! Drew would do great in a home that can further his understanding of the world, create fun games when playing outside, enjoy taking 'working' walks/hills walks-hikes (away from sidewalk and using tricks) and his settle for the day will rise and shine.

Rescue Me ID: 16-11-09-00331Banjo (male)

Border Collie    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Banjo: Age:2 yr old; Sex: Male; Weight: 45 lbs; Activity Level: Active Companion/Companion; Border Collie Rough Coat. Introducing Mr Banjo a fun loving dog in the making Border Collie who enjoys spending time with his people and having fun!! Yes he really likes to have his people time: loves to take walks or a jog, enjoys chasing squirrels in a secured fenced yard, LOVES to swim as this really helps him be a confident young BC. Banjo is an owner return to avail of his own, thus what I have discovered about Banjo is he does have some past experiences that can make him a little uncertain of himself, missing quality steps in socialization ... (Read More)years. Through confidence and positive training with me he is learning he can go further and be a fulfilled pup earning affection and taking direction with toys/swim/leash time/settle inside the home. Swimming with a special toy really helps boost his confidence/endorphins as he enjoys the fun challenge of going in on the deep end of the pool, he could really enjoy a water sport or walks along a trail that has a stream/pond. Banjo is uncertain of movement as this is part of his BC traits, he would do best in a quieter home without too much coming or going, as well as continuing healthy boundaries using the crate especially with the front door as this makes him anxious with a desire to chase out the door and it is a must that Banjo have an owner that can be his leader and give him further direction. With is former owner Banjo enjoyed going to work at her chiropractic office and visiting with clients; long walks along the river in the am with swim time; running fun errands with the immediate family and trips to the dog park occasionally. He would make a great travel companion as new adventures on leash bring him closer to his people as much as he would enjoy an active retried family or an interactive family who liked to enjoy the busy in life time with their 4 legged companion. Banjo walks well on the leash and settles into a speed after a little trick work; he crates nicely; house trained; enjoys fun balls and toy play and would be a great Frisbee contender as he likes to jump up and off you like a fun Frisbee dog. For Banjo his journey to his forever home would be a home either worked from home or a hearty break during a work day, if children just the 1 child 10 + who wanted that close relationship with their pup would suit him, most comfortable with dogs smaller than him and learning more about dogs his size but he is very curious/learning more and does show play positions enjoying some chase and herd fun. If you travel and were looking for a hiking buddy Banjo could go faster or slower you show him the speed!! Adopting Banjo does require an application, meetings, and home visit where applicable and YES he will travel for the right home and yes he is fully vetted with the standard adult donation of $300.

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-12-00321Brie (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    BIOS ARE BEING UPDATED THIS IS A VERY UNIQUE HIGH ENERGY DOG INQUIRE WITHIN Weight 25 lbs. Were you looking for a 21 month old pup that can be your entire world and trust life through your direction on the leash? That is what Brie is looking for: bright eyed playful, cuddly bouncy petite girl about 13 inches-with a soft smile and loads of charm desiring full trust in people as she aims to please is available for Foster to Adopt or Adoptive Home. She is a special treasure that was not going to allow previous fears on the leash and being confused with sounds and movements hold her back from a real life-she wants more than just playing in ... (Read More)the yard and she deserves it! Brie really LOVES balls and toys; strong desire to retrieve/give and run and herd her pack mates and that happy bark when doing so; finds so much freedom in swimming and turned into a fish like her siblings her 2nd trip to a park (in her video) at the quieter hours; jump on the couch with you and enjoy a fun chat and lap love; loves to ride in the car. Her leash life lessons have been stunted from fears in early puppy stages and her life before rescue amplifying her sound sensitivity and reaction to movements. Remember she is a herder these traits are so true for the breed. For me I love to earn undivided trust through the leash and that is what Brie is getting and she is gaining a confident foundation to her lessons. Example of a lesson: Brie can now start her walk right out my door (unless too much activity then we drive), using the clicker to mark positive behavior and calm she also does down and recall other tricks on the leash to keep the focus. If there is activity in front of us we may cross the street before-hand and or make a U-turn in a drive way or push on through it doing tricks keeping a steady calm nature for Brie and identify what we see and move on so as not to fixate on fear of unknown variables. Example: on a walk there was a loose Schnauzer out front of its house, she loves dogs of course, and I went over with her about ringing the doorbell for the puppy and it's mommy may talk to us, she was very calm and there were no other outside factors at that time all very happy-as we moved along our walk two people came around a corner a bit unexpected she got scared but worked with me and the command is 'done'. It's all about the trust down the leash for Brie. 2/9 Example: Quiet trail walk at Sugarland Memorial Park: Brie did great with the big lawn mowers doing tricks for focus and calm, saw a jogger fear barked as he was 'coming at us' then she wanted to herd him!, did great with me talking to someone from a distance and let me know she was ready to move on. I am highly observant of our environment to anticipate anything necessary creating a positive and safe environment. Brie can handle activity on the street and it's important for her to have this but if it's too much at once, or right in front of her she feels threatened possibly boxed it like it's coming 'at her', progressing daily with this, and cars used to scare her so much just the vibration she was in total fear of being injured. She is looking for someone who works from home that has the time to dedicate to more lessons for a healthy living; an approved trainer maybe needed to continue this work in her environment please be aware of the commitment you are making to her. Fortunate for Brie and her littermates I was able make a full commitment at 11 weeks of age building a foundation allowing Brie to find her true self. Brie and her sister did move from a foster to my rescue/training house at 4 months of age. This was an accidental litter Border Collie mom and Aussie dad surrendered to rescue. Coming from a rural raising with limited human interaction things in the world are still new and take time to learn and trust. With my desire to build a strong physical foundation and the lack of proper nutrition she has been on a raw meat/fresh veggies diet along and quality kibble. An ideal home for her would have some quiet between neighbors; fence is mandatory and no apartments or condos; children 10 and up only as this can be too intense to this Border Collie; a dedicated human partner to enjoy life with; having her human and pup pack to bond with. Brie's adoption donation is $275. There is an application to adopt and home visit where applicable. She is crate/house trained; fully vetted/chipped/on preventative, clicker and enjoys whistle training. ******I believe you have to see the world as a dog does and thus training began at home on all the new and unknown variables through identification, clicker and positive food motivated exercises; learning redirection to sounds and stimuli in the yard/home and life on the leash; coached on dog interactions to strengthen the leadership skills; working through all fears in the home and on the leash using the clicker method to achieve a healthy action/reactio (Less)
