Rescue Me ID: 17-11-17-00346Riley (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Riley: 6.5 months; Sex: Male; Weight: 28 lbs (almost done growing); Height 18 inches; Activity Level: Active Companion; Breed: Border Collie Mix; Coat: Black and White Rough Coat. Spunky and Exuberant youthful, Riley, is needing his Alpha to keep a structured environment. This pup has gone through SO many changes that I can't wait to see him in his new home!! It take a special person to understand Riley. He needs someone to keep him challenged and focus. He is an energetic boy who is fearless to loud noise, car rides, and trips to the vet. He enjoys leash walks, balls and toys, and rolling around in the grass while working on sticks and ... (Read More)with grunting games but only when his people are outside. Needs lots of fenced in areas for running - he has to let his wild side run free. This pup has really come full circle from a boisterous confused pup running the streets at almost 3 months; coming into rescue in July, I have been working with Riley laying the ground work for manners inside the home. Manners on walks; crate training (a must have for him to feel safe in his own den space); coming when called; comfort level in varied situations in the home. He is a bit strong willed and will have the run of your home; privileges when earned and asked. Structure and boundaries and earning rewards are what he truly craves. As you can see from the video Riley gets a real kick out of dogs and doesn't stop when a dog sits down, giving space to the other dog or reading 'body language'; more than likely he didn't get enough time with him momma dog. Riley would do best as an only dog or with a dog that can handle this behavior well that is larger and present as a leader to other dogs. Due to his impulses he will most likely do best with no children with his energy level and an older Alpha Mini Me of mom or dad; he will need a good yard with a secure 6 foot fence; appropriate training classes are SO important for this pup as he matures. Continued routine and practice something I really stress for Riley's maturity. Riley is fully vetted; has been on heart worm and flea preventive; is micro chipped to rescue and his adopter on a legal neuter agreement. All adoptions require application process, meet and greets and home visit (if applicable) to ensure the fit is perfect. Riley's adoption donation is $250 with a legal neuter contract, $325 alteration/baby teeth removed scheduled within rescue services . (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-09-19-00028Ellie (female)

Border Collie    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Ellie: 9 years young; Sex: Female; Weight: 43 lbs (goal is 35 ish); Activity Level: Companion; Breed: Border Collie Lavender Back and White. Ellie is back and really ready for adoption this time around being fostered with her rescuer learning more, as her adoption wasn't a good fit for all parties nothing she did that made this decision in fact all the grandkids loved her.%BD%A0 All we knew about Ellie is that she was left behind in a barn during an estate sale showing she had been bred quite a bit, had a lot of trouble moving around and walking her back end had sat in a U shape for who knows how long in that barn. She is still gaining ... (Read More)confidence as her own dog inside the home and on walks on the property as well as leash walks. Ellie loves it when I am outside reading a book as she can come over and nudge me all day long for pets and knows she can also have a place next to me or sit in the grass with a calm command. She rides nicely in the car is not nervous at the vet and enjoys the dog beds in my home and the safety of her crate. She can still be anxious inside uncertain which way to the door or if OK to drink from water bowl. In my open floor plan I use baby gates for engaging boundaries for Ellie to be loose in with me or if I am very busy inside she uses her crate as a safe den and for rain or fireworks. Ellie is doing some training work to move forward from past experiences that can be easily transferred to her new home, she is totally up for a road trip to meet her perfect match. When you meet Ellie you might ask what happened why does she have arthritis in her hips and knees and can't enjoy the couch like my other dogs? Well no one cared to walk her in her former home and she didn't get adequate exercise in her previous adoptive home but she loves the leash and will walk about a mile a day using a joint supplement, fish oils and a heated Tumeric recipe for her arthritis as she does much better than on medications. A perfect home for her would be: an active retired person, someone who works from home; or a dog walker work day home; a home who is familiar with a strong willed dog who needs to use her manners and listen to her human boss and continue to learn what she missed out on as a younger dog!! A small properly fenced yard (6 feet) would suit her fine, an active dog in the home who respects Ellie's boundaries she would enjoy as she really can run with engaging stimulation, she is excited about cats but will stop with 'cookie' command, she does fine with children and will allow hugs and pets but won't be the type of dog that comes running to children however if it is too busy in the home she does fine in her crate. All adoptions require application process, meet and greets and home visit if applicable to ensure the fit is perfect. Ellie's adoption donation is $150 for seniors that need that special home (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: 17-04-15-00027Drew (male)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Drew: 3 yr Male BC/Aussie Activity Level: Sports Companion/Active Companion Diet: Instinct Duck & Pea/Red Meat Raw & Veggies 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 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 ... (Read More)give him mostly in our environment incorporating that into play in the yard, on the leash, special toys enjoying new play games. Drew is looking for an experienced dog person who understands the sensitivities of the Border Collie and may not be suitable for off leash; lots of room to run and play; 6 foot Wooden Fence; human break during a work day. 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. 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. 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; he would do well with a BC experienced school age child, 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 Drew and potentially stay a few days to further the matching process. (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)
