I am already spayed, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Good day to you!!! My name is Tinkerbell, and I’ve had nothing but good days since I was rescued from the never never land of a hoarding situation in Arkansas. Even so, I remain quite skittish around the general populace. I hide under my foster Mom’s desk at her work, but once I’m home…all bets are off. I’ve even heard her refer to me as “Tinker the Tireless”, the prancing instigator of demolition. What? I’ve only attempted to eat one couch, and no one informed me, until after the fact, that it was an antique. How was I supposed to know? I’m not even a year old yet…and I’m a dog. Hello!!! My foster Mom may know these things, but I don’t learn stuff like that by osmosis. As far as being tireless, pfft…well, what does she expect? I hide under her desk for over 8 hours, quietly observing her day. I have energy to burn when I get home, and the layout of my house is perfect for drag racing, and screeching around corners, leading my brothers and sister in a rousing game of “Catch Me If You Can”. Notice the white tip of my gorgeous tail? Notice the set of my eyes and ears, my happy pixie like face, and my most beauteous markings? I’m a BORDER COLLIE. Tireless is SUPPOSED to be my middle name.
I’m house trained. I’m crate trained. I know “sit”. I know “drop it”. I haven’t learned anything else yet because, by her own admission, my foster Mom is being a slacker. She thinks I’ll be a quick study once she has the one on one time to devote to my training, and I develop intestinal fortitude. I LOVE to play with my foster brothers and sister. I jump onto the bed in one whoosh, and it’s a HIGH bed. I’m not into toys, YET. I won’t go after a ball, YET. I should probably be adopted by a family with at least one other dog because I need a furry security blanket, and a buddy to lead on a merry chase, but more on that later. I need to stay where I am until I grow some gumption.
I hope this small write up has piqued your interest. My foster Mom says I’m not ready for prime time yet, but if you like what you’ve read so far, a “teaser” if you will, set your TiVo, and stay tuned to this channel!!! I’m going to blossom into the…BEST. DOG. EVER!!! You're gonna' want me. I just know it.

Rescue Group Info...
We are a small rescue organization located in Southwest Florida. Being small helps us give more one on one attention to individual dogs and their needs. Rescued dogs are kept in our homes and treated as our own. Border Collies are a unique breed. Because they are a highly intelligent breed, they require much of the owner’s attention. The dogs are evaluated, when they come into the rescue, for any temperament and health issues. Then they are given basic obedience, socialization and rehabilitation as it is necessary.
It is our sole purpose to find forever homes for these loving, wonderful dogs that have been discarded through no fault of their own. All adopted dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on shots, heartworm negative, micro-chipped, and on flea and tick preventative as well as heartworm preventative.
Since all rescue dogs live in our homes with us or in foster homes, you will need to travel to meet any dog you might want to adopt.
You will need to contact Ewenity Farms BCH to make arrangements to meet the rescue dog.
We require potential adopters to fill out an Adoption Application.When that is approved we can arrange for the prospective adopter to meet the dog they are interested in. We do require an adoption contract to be signed at time of adoption. We conduct home visits. There is an adoption fee that is usually around $250 per dog to cover any expenses we have incurred. We do have dogs located at quaified fosters throughout the state and also out of state.
The adoption fee is also used to purchase food, flea and tick preventative, and heartworm preventative.
