Bronco's Story...
Hi, my name is Bronco, and I’m around 13 years old, but my story begins about 9 years ago, the day I was first rescued. I had been on the streets long enough to have been in multiple dog fights, shot with a pellet gun, and broke my leg, probably from trying to herd a car. Then I went to school, Odessa High School, where I met two nice teachers who took care of me, took me to the vet where they amputated my leg, and then found me a loving home. Fast forward 8 years, my Mom had terminal cancer. Her caretakers found homes for my brothers and sisters. I wasn’t so easy, since I only had three legs, plus I was 20 pounds overweight (don’t judge) so I couldn’t get around very well. I could only take a few steps, then I would have to sit down and pull myself with my front legs. The caretakers then found Border Collie Rescue & Rehab and they agreed to take me. I’ve been in my foster home since June 2016. I’ve lost 15 lbs, had lots of physical therapy so I can get around better and with less pain, and now I’m getting a new leg! This is a very big deal because my leg was amputated at the hip so there is no attachment point. There has never been a prosthetic designed for this. But then we met Pawsthetics, a 3D printing company who is designing my very own prosthetic leg with a harness! I am a friendly guy who loves to be brushed and petted. I have some hearing and sight loss but am picking up on hand signals. And now I’m even getting some basic training! I’m here to prove the saying, “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” to be false! Please stay tuned! I will be available to go to my Furever Home very soon!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bronco, a Allen Border Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie for sale in Allen, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Allen.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Allen already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Allen breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Border Collie breeders who help with Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Allen paves the way for another one to be saved.
