Hope is a gorgeous six year old red merle border collie. She was found in someone's yard in Oklahoma. A kind hearted soul took her in and discovered that she was not only heart worm positive, but also had a large benign tumor. Hope is a sweetheart who gets along well with others (dogs, humans, cats, children). Although she seems to love everyone, she can be initially shy and may have been abused in the past. If you move quickly near her or raise your voice, she sometimes ducks her head. Hope would do well in a home where she gets to be a companion for a human. Although she does like the companionship of a dog, she isn't much on active play. She is a very calm, low energy and affectionate girl. Hope enjoys sleeping mostly, and will follow her foster mom around the house to rest at her feet. Hope also enjoys giving kisses. Hope is house trained and currently uses a doggy door to let herself in and out as needed. She will not get on furniture, likely due to some arthritis. She is a bright, food motivated girl, and could easily learn other things in her new home. Hope is a great eater, even eats pills without any effort. Hope is listed as Coming Soon. She is undergoing a slow kill Heartworm treatment, and is still recovering from having the large tumor removed. Once she settles, and is fully recovered, she will be made Available for Adoption. If you would like to make a donation to help with Hope's medical expenses, please visit our Website at Donations may also be mailed to PO Box 682, Allen, TX 75013.

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.
