Meet Plato, a seriously cute dog. Plato has a heeler body with a slightly fluffy collie-ish coat – making him look like a perpetual puppy. Plato is very thoughtful and often serious in his expressions, hence, his name. However, he can get silly when playing with his people friends – we call him Playdough when that happens. Plato is good with other dogs and people and often wants to engage and play with them.. He is curious about cats, but is fairly respectful of them. He walks very nicely on a leash, knows sit, down, shake, turn and is learning to stay. He’s also learning to play fetch and loves playing tug of war with his foster dad. He is a great companion for walks and jogs. Plato is crate trained and knows how to use a dog door. He is doing well with house training and he’s about to graduate on that department (still supervised when loose in the house).

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.
