Hi everyone, my name is Jake and I am an 11 year old male border collie with classic black and white markings. I had a rough first 11 years, being left out in the backyard. The only attention I got was when my old owner played ball with me. I love to play ball or fetch, I do not care what it is, if you throw it I will chase after it as fast as I can. I am also really good at jumping to catch toys. My foster dad cannot believe I am 11, he keeps telling me I am 11 going on 2.....I don't know what that means, all I know is I like to play ball. I am a little weary of new situations, but once I trust you I will be your best friend and will not want to ever leave the house. My foster dad is working on leash training with me, but the leash scares me because I do not want to leave my foster dad's house. I guess someday I will learn to like it because my foster dad keeps giving me treats when we go on short walks. I get along really well with his 3 border collies and I love all the visitors he has over to his house, just means more people to throw a ball or toy for me. I do love to cuddle up with my foster dad once it is bed time. Anyways, I cannot wait to have my own forever home......will you be the one to throw the ball for me and let me cuddle with you at night?

About Arizona Border Collie Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

The purpose and main function of Arizona Border Collie Rescue (ABCR) is to promote humane treatment through rescue, rehabilitation, education and the re-homing of neglected, abandoned and unwanted border collies.

Our Adoption Process...

We have a 4-step adoption process to make sure you find the right dog for your family.
First you fill out an application, and then you will have a phone interview to find out just what type of dog you are looking for and if you are familiar with the breed. Next you will be scheduled for a home visit to better assess your needs and the appropriate activity level and age of a potential dog adoption. Last but most important you will be scheduled to meet the Border Collies that would suit you and your family the best for a long happy life together.
