Lucy is a two year old female we pulled from a shelter in Big Spring Tx back in March. She's with her foster mom who is considering her for adoption at this time. If she decides she is not the right fit for her home, Lucy will become available for adoption.

Here's some details about Lucy's progress from her foster momma:
Lucy is slowly coming out of her shell. She is seriously damaged. Hides in her crate, didn't know her name, has no training. She now comes to me, greets me at the door and sleeps part of the night next to my bed. Has bonded with my border collie pup and is getting along most of the time with my corgi. She is extremely fearful of men. I have her in an agility class. Still walking with head and tail down..but compliant. Can't tell if she will enjoy it yet. Probably a 2 or 3 month time period before it's clear. She still throws up every time she is in car. Hates leaving the house. . .take her on a Nature Trail 3 or 4 times a week...still scared I will leave her. Very sweet and protective of the property. We have calves behind our house and she definitely watches them closely.

Keep following Lucy's story as we get updates from her foster momma!

About Border Collie Rescue & Rehab of Texas

About Our Rescue Group...

Border Collie Rescue & Rehab (BCR&R) is a network of volunteers and foster homes dedicated to helping save Border Collies, Border Collie mixes and other similar herding breeds.

The dogs in our program have come from shelters and the streets and we bring them into our homes and provide them with the training and love necessary to help them become valued members of a family. We call it our Rescue & Rehab Program.

All dogs are provided with necessary veterinary care and are microchipped. The dogs in our program will live with us as part of our families for a minimum of 3 to 4 weeks for evaluation and training in addition to ensuring overall health.

Our Adoption Process...

Once we have your application we will begin our screening and matching process so we can help find you a perfect match.

All Applicants are interviewed, reference checks and a home visit completed.

Once approved and you have met a dog that you would like to adopt, an adoption contract will be completed and an adoption donation of $300.00 requested to complete the adoption process.

BCR&R is totally dependent on our volunteers and foster homes, most of whom have full time careers and commitments outside of BCR&R. As a result, we work with potential adoptive families in the evenings and weekends.
