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!

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.
