Posted Breed: Border Collie. If you want to enter an Adoption Application, please click on the following link: http://rogersrescues.com/apply We adopt to NJ and the eastern edge of PA. Please contact ROGERS' RESCUE if you are uncertain of us adopting to your area. All our foster dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on their shots, and have a clean bill of health. In order to meet any of our dogs, you should check your email daily for follow-up instructions. PERSONALITY: Smart, loving, cuddly BREED: Border Collie mix AGE: 1 year old WEIGHT: 33 pounds (I am done growing!) PERSONALITY: Playful, silly, and sweet ENERGY LEVEL: Animated, active, and fun GOOD WITH OTHER DOGS: Yes, requires another dog GOOD WITH CATS: Depends on the cat GOOD WITH KIDS: I prefer calm people, so no toddlers or loud, active kids please! SHEDDING: Yes, I shed GOOD IN THE CAR: Quiet and polite CRATE TRAINED: Yes MUST HAVES: Lots of toys, another dog, and a physically fenced yard ABOUT: Do you have a fenced yard and another dog? Then I may be the dog for you! I’m Millie and I love to have fun and learn new things! In my foster home, I spend so much time playing with all of the toys! They really are my favorite things. I willingly go into my crate and am content to hang out there while my foster people are out. They tell me that I’m very smart and food motivated. I learned sit right away and am getting really good at coming when called and drop it! My new home will need to have a fenced yard since I really love to run and play. I definitely need an outgoing and confident dog in my new home, as I follow my doggy foster brother's lead and am more confident with him around. There are also cats in my foster home and I get along with them most of the time, but sometimes I do chase them so it really depends on the cat. I do take time to warm up to new people, and seem to do best when allowed to approach them rather than them approaching me. I have gotten used to household sounds like the TV and vacuum cleaner, but would be happiest in a home without toddlers or loud, active kids. I do hope to have a cozy bed and blankets to roll in, lots of toys to play with, and people who will continue to teach me to be confident in all situations! Our dogs are all fostered in private homes, and all adopters must go through our screening process before being put in contact with the foster family. By responding to our email inquiries quickly, you can help speed up the approval process! Rogers' Rescues is a 501(c)3 non-profit, all volunteer dog rescue. We are in DESPERATE NEED of more volunteers. CLICK HERE if you are interested in volunteering with us. Donations are always needed to help with vetting, transportation, and supplies for our dogs.

Border Collie

A.K.A. : Scottish Sheep Dog, Welsh sheep dog

Character: Border Collies are intelligent, determined, and brave. They form a very close attachment to their family and are always eager to please.
Temperament: This breed gets along well with other pets and children, as long as there is sufficient activity to keep everyone occupied.
Care: The Border Collie requires at least weekly brushing.
Training: This breed is very intelligent and eager to please, thus making training a very pleasurable and rewarding experience for both dog and owner.
Activity: The Border Collie needs to stay active to keep from being bored (and, therefore, behaving badly). He needs plenty of exercise or specific tasks on a regular basis.

More About Border Collie Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.
