Facts about AIMEE

  • Breed: Border Collie
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Aimee is tiny 26 pound flat coat BC, @ 18 to 24 months old.  She was a stray, that came into rescue in need of immediate medical intervention.  Apparently she had been the a victim of being hit by a car and was not taken to a vet for medical help. It was also apparent that she had, had a recent litter of puppies.  At first we thought that she was a candidate for FHO surgery for her hip, but the x-rays showed that that she had an old injury to her tibia that healed on its own.

The Vet felt that it affected her growth plate which made her leg grow a bit shorter and that FHO surgery to the hip  would not correct her problem.  The Vet did not recommend amputation either as she is using the limb, and her foster parents are committed to strengthen the muscles on her hip and leg. She now uses all 4 legs about 85 to 95% of the time. She is great with other dogs, kids and people in general.  She has the typical BC prey drive, so is not good with small animals, its not recommended that she is placed in a home with cats.

Her new family should be fairly active and committed to keeping her busy and strong. She loves play time and her toys that she sneaks out of the toy basket and piles on her bed. She is crate trained, and will put herself to bed in her crate. She is doing better on a leash, is house trained but it is recommended that she is put in basic training classes. She is your typical smart BC and wants to please her people. She has a very sweet, shy personality, she does not do well with harsh or loud voices, responds better to soft correction.

Once you meet and spend time with this sweet little girl you can't help but love her and want her future to be safe and filled with the love she so deserves.  She makes her foster parents laugh at her silliness and their hearts melt with her cuddles every day.

If you are interested in meeting our dogs, please fill out an adoption application.  We require a pre-approved application to be on file before any meet and greets are scheduled.  The electronic application can be found on our website at

About Border Collies In Need

About Our Rescue Group...

Border Collies in Need, Inc. was founded in 2007 by a group of non-paid volunteers who have come together to rescue and foster Border Collies (BCs). Border Collies in Need is a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing Border Collies who are abandoned, neglected, or abused, and placing them into permanent, loving homes. Our dogs come to us from a variety of different sources such as City and County Shelters and strays. We also accept dogs from private individuals, or offer assistance to those needing help to re-home their family pets, who for whatever reason must relinquish their Border Collie(s).

Our ultimate purpose is to match homeless or potentially homeless Border Collies with loving permanent families, specifically interested in the breed. We will accomplish this by providing temporary foster care, necessary and reasonable veterinary treatment, temperament evaluations of the dogs, and interviewing suitability of potential adopters, which includes a “home-check.” Each dog is provided with all necessary and reasonable veterinary treatment, vaccinations, sterilization, and micro-chipping.

Border Collies in Need recognizes the need to expand its horizons beyond the basic rescue duties, and network closely with regional Border Collie clubs which includes herding, agility, and flyball activities for sport and competition. Border Collies In Need recognizes that many regional Border Collie clubs do not have funds to support rescue even though they are the ones who are looked upon as the caretakers of the breed.

It is through the mutual admiration and respect of this breed that will encourage awareness to their plight by breed education, by promoting rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption.

Our Adoption Process...

The dogs in our program are fully tested and evaluated for temperament, sterilized, micro chipped, and all required vaccinations have been administered prior to adoption.

In order to adopt a dog from BCs in Need, Inc., you must first submit an Adoption Application. You will be contacted by one of our volunteers to discuss your application and the BC traits you desire for your companion. Once your application has been approved, you will be eligible to adopt.

To submit your application, you may apply online. The more information that you can give us on your application helps us to determine if the dog is the right match for you. Additionally, we may recommend others for your consideration that would fit into your lifestyle. We strive to mutually match our dogs into forever homes with adopters. You will be notified by email or telephone when your application has been approved.

We schedule adoptions by appointment only or you can visit us at local adoption events which are listed on our Events Page. If you have another dog, you will need to bring it with you to see if they are compatible with one another. We will do a home check, however, pictures of your home, yard, fencing, gates, and where the dog will sleep are encouraged.

If you have any questions please email us at
