Facts about Elsa

  • Breed: Border Collie Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 304
Elsa was found wandering around a school in Saginaw, TX. She was wanting to play with the children at recess. One of our volunteers, who works at the school, was able to bring her home. She appears to do great with older children, and will be introduced to younger ones as well. We don't foresee there being any issues with her loving on children.

For Elsa, everything about being in the house was new. She was overwhelmed and scared, but she quickly learned that she liked other dogs and cats. She also loves cuddling with her foster mom, the other dogs, and her foster dad. She will try to play with the dogs a little, but she mostly enjoys cuddling and pacing the room or fenceline. As she has settled in more, she has opened up a bit on the energy scale, and could be considered medium energy. She would be a great companion to her humans, and would be fine as an only dog or in a multi-pet house.

She is extremely bright and learned to use the dog door within the first 24 hours in addition to learning to walk on a leash. She does well in her crate and the car. She appears to be completely potty trained since she takes herself outside through the dog door in order to take care of business.
She has chased the cat a little but only when the cat is running. She has been very gentle and sweet with the kitten even when the kitten attacks/claws her.

For Elsa, life was like a series of doors in her face until suddenly she ran into one of our volunteers. Can your love be the open door she's been searching for?
Elsa is estimated to be about a year and a half old. She weighs 45 lbs.

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.
