Hey there! My name is Bodhi and I am a young border collie mix with quite the border collie personality. I was originally adopted through Power of the Paw as a puppy, but then I sadly wasn't socialized correctly. I began nipping at the children coming in an out of the home and was surrendered back to the rescue. I was just trying to control the craziness, but I guess it wasn't appreciated. 

When I first arrived, I had a rough go at it all. I was very scared and didn't know how to handle all the confusion in my life. I am now doing phenomenally in my border collie savvy foster home. I obviously have fear of strangers and it takes a bit to warm up. But after I'm comfortable, I am an awesome dog. 

I get along well with other dogs. I have been introduced to quite a few of them and done really well. Cats on the other hand... Well, I don't know how I'd do with them. It's likely that I probably would like to chase them though, just because of the type of dog I am. As for kids, because of my past, I need older, respectful children. If they don't know how to be respectful, I get unsure and scared. I don't bite but I do use my mouth to make it clear I am uncomfortable. My foster mom says we are working on teaching me not to talk all the time. I think that everyone needs to always hear me. Luckily, I'm smart so I'm catching on to the "shhhh" quite quickly. Since being here, I haven't had a single accident in the house and can be left alone, roaming. I use a doggie door currently. Just make sure the trash is up and there isn't any food on the counters. That will make me a bit curious. 

If you know border collies and love the energy and intellegence of our breed, I might be the one for you. To meet me, head on over to adopt/ dog-adoption-application/  and fill out the application. I have so much potential! 

ADOPTION FEE: $200 includes neuter, DAPP, Rabies, Bordetella, microchip, deworm and vet check.

About Our Rescue Group...

We began in November 2011 as a facebook page that shared dogs in high kill shelters and we grew into something unexpected. We now have fosters, volunteers, and supporters that have grown the rescue into something we never imagined. We are volunteer run, and we are not government funded. We run off community donations.
