Rescue Me ID: 18-04-18-00060Rey (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Rey: Age: 1.5-2 yrs old; Sex: Female; Activity Level: Active Companion/Sports; Border Collie/American Mini Aussie; Color: Black/White; Weight 30 lbs; Docked Tail. Rey is a fun loving get up and go gal ready for excursions with cool tricks to keep her mind stimulated. She loves to go for a variety of leashed trail walks, checking out different terrains and popping into different neighborhoods for some fun along an errand run as much as she can fit in throughout the week!! In a conflict or anything too intense she is easy to redirect, wicked smart and yes her new home will want to enrich this in all aspects with Rey:a deep desire to work ... (Read More)and have fun! Rey does play with some toys/tugging/flirt pole and stimulating balls that bounce and move keeping her challenged along with trying out agility weave poles in her yard. I have started to test her for Search and Rescue and she really enjoys the work; would be a nice obedience dog or possibly agility or things like this in her environment-changing the stimulation while creating fun challenges; trick classes would be cool too. Even though Rey has a lot of relax settle to her, she has a strong mind must be challenged to be worn out! Rey does well with dogs she has met, she has learned about meeting new dogs on a leash walks and really gets a kick out of running on little dog side of a dog park; great with cats who like dogs; respects her fence boundaries; easy on leash; car rides; at the groomers; she is crate trained. If there was a dog in her prospective home she would love to engage in play with another confidant dog who likes a play mate who jumps over her and has fun climbing trees. What she was missing is a home where she can settle in and be herself, continue socialization, engage in life exploring more, and use her mind as she really wants to think. Rey initial vetting indicates she may have been a working ranch dog as she plays using her herding skills. In fact Rey was just hanging out in the yard with the foster/finders dog in Benders Landing as if all was well and she had belonged for some time in their home. She could be a nice herding dog; she is very bidable for tricks and any training and I think would be a fun dog to continue to teach new things; explore leash walks and continue to be engaged in this new journey she is on. Rey is full vetted, adoption donation $300, application to adopt is requested, we anticipate she would do well with children 8; home with good yard and at least 5 foot fence; break during a work day and depending on the applicant if an out of area applicant would be a potential match best that they come to Houston to meet Rey potentially stay a few days to further the matching process.

Rescue Me ID: 18-04-10-00031Drew (male)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Drew: 4 yr Male BC/Aussie Activity Level: Active Companion/Sports Diet: Raw Balanced Diet Special Talent: Fantastic Air Kiss w Hug/Up for Anything; Clicker Trained/Responsive/Whistle Responsive Training: Heavy Socialization/Positive Boundaries Experienced Dog/BC Owner Potentials Drew is the kind of Border Collie that reads your mind with his eyes, attention to body language, and wicked smart. He can be a hyper typical teenage Border Collie, 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. He is great with any training ... (Read More)incorporating it into play in the yard, on the leash, and with special toys enjoying new games. Drew is looking for an experienced dog person who understands the sensitivities of the Border Collie; lots of room to run and play; 6 foot Wooden Fence; human break during a work day. His litter came to my rescue July 4th 2014 at 4 months of age which is a prime life experience for any dog. Drew overcame a lot of fears and had some imprinting from the owner reaching/grabbing. All the 8 puppies were running free on her 3 acres in Louisiana, pretty dang scary for young herders. 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) settling in for the day. I do feel he would benefit from another dog in his home that is on his activity level and enjoy fun BC/Aussie play or play dates with dogs he's met on leash walk. Also, he would do well with a BC experienced school age child. He crates nicely with a break during a work day, a 6 foot fence is required, and owners that follow his diet as his colon is super sensitive. 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 Drew and potentially stay a few days to further the matching process. There is an application and home visit required, adoption $300 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-15-00030Tip (male)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Tip: 3 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/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 during a ... (Read More)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: 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)
