Shea is a stunning 4 year old male, purebred Border Collie. Shea has a rough, brindle-pointed tri color coat.
Shea came to NBCR from a shelter with his brother Philib. We will be adopting each dog individually. Shea is a really nice dog. He is well adjusted and gets along great with people. He loves to meet new people too. Shea could use a little training, but is easy to be around. He does sometimes get excited and jump up, but responds well to corrections. Shea gets along great with other dogs. He has a more submissive personality with his brother Philib, so he may continue to be more submissive OR he may become more dominant in a new home. Shea has not been introduced to cats.
Shea LOVES to play ball! He is very intensely focused on the tennis ball, but also calm at the same time (what a nice combination!). Shea knows that to play fetch he needs to bring the ball back - and he will bring it right back and place it at your feet! Shea is a very nice dog who would do well in an active home.
More information soon!

Rescue Group Info...
NBCR is run by a small group of animal-loving volunteers, all of whom help in BIG ways... we foster, train, socialize, transport, visit shelters, provide veterinary care, educate the public on responsible dog ownership and the characteristics and needs of Border Collies, take pictures to keep website updated, make phone calls, do home visits, etc. NBCR works hard to place adoptable dogs into appropriate forever homes, making the best match possible between the dog and the adopter(s). All border collies in our care receive full veterinary care, including spay/neuter, vaccinations, heartworm testing and preventative. We groom each dog, begin initial obedience training, provide herding tests for some dogs, evaluate for activity level & temperments, socialize and provide a loving environment to nuture their needs.
Nebraska Border Collie Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to serving the immediate needs of Border Collies and Border Collie mixes in danger of harm or euthanasia, as well as educating the public to reduce the need for rescue in the future.
Since we rely on foster homes to house our dogs, you will need to make an appointment if you wish to meet a particular dog.
If you are interested in adoption, an Adoption Application is required to be filled out and a Home Visit will be done by one of our volunteers. An Adoption Fee is required, as well as an Adoption Contract after your family has been approved.
