***SASSY says: 'Keep calm and adopt a pet.'***

And she would love it if you'd adopt her! 

At eight years old, this 38-pound Border Collie has all the kinks worked out, and she possesses impeccable etiquette—not to mention she's embracing the Chicago way with excellent laundry-basket-dibs-calling technique as well!

Quiet and polite, Sassy is a true lady. She drinks her tea with a pinkie claw up and knows how to dress for dinner without any direction from you. She gets what she wants without being obnoxious because 'elegance' is her second name, and also, frankly, because no one wants to see what she looks like when disappointed.

Already house trained, and getting along great in her foster home with other dogs—that all have huge crushes on this border collie babe—Sassy is sweet and gentle…a dog that everyone truly loves! In a word, an angel. Covered in fur.

About All Herding Breed Dog Rescue of Illinois

About Our Rescue Group...

•We pull dogs from shelters that euthanize, bring them into our homes, have them vetted, feed them a proper diet, train and exercise them until we reach our goal of finding them new homes and matching them up with forever families.
•We will re-home owner surrenders facing hardship no longer able to care for their herding dog.
•We want to reduce the animal overpopulation by spaying and neutering and educating the public of its importance.
We are strong advocates against animal suffering, abuse and neglect. We teach the importance of proper care, training and socialization for a humane world.
