My story




Shy Sue is a 1-year-old (could be a tad older as she has had at least one litter), 44-pound border collie. As her name indicates, she is a very timid girl and would be considered a flight risk in a new home. If you are looking for a beautiful border collie who is adaptable and fun-loving and wants to go play ball and hike- this is not the dog for you. We don’t know Shy Sue’s background, but at the very least, she was neglected. She tries to escape and can; she is terrified to come into the house and startles at every movement and sound. She has very bad storm anxiety- medicine helps a little.



Shy Sue is warming up in out home, and our pack of four dogs is critical to her success in showing her what is safe. Shy Sue studies their behavior. She was just spayed and is not feeling well, so her personality has not fully come out, and I am not sure yet what type of home would be best for her. Definitely not one with a lot of activity and noise, so no children.



Shy Sue is Heartworm positive and will go through 90 days of treatment for that. I will update her bio when I get a better sense of what she needs.



Thanks for reading and considering adopting a dog. She is a bit of a project, and there are so many easier adoptable dogs dying to find a home right now that I would encourage you to keep an open mind to them.





An Adoption Application for this dog can be found and submitted online.
