Story
Burr was born in December of 2013 and we have had him since April of 2014 as a puppy. He has had anxiety issues all of his life, especially with motorcycles, fireworks, thunderstorms, etc. In the past year had increased issues of urinating in the basement kennel. We feel bad that he should really be on a farm or outdoor environment with safe shelter available. Not a full time indoor house dog, but needs a safe haven when anxiety causing situations arise. Very sweet dog but has no quality life living in our basement. We both work outside the home and don’t have the time anymore due to changes in career obligations to give as much attention as we would like. Struggle with the thought of having to put him down but hopefully could find a new better place for him to enjoy his last few years.

Story
Meet Kage, the ultimate good boy who's just so darn cute! This gentleman is a pro at house living, fully potty trained, and a master at walking on a leash and harness. He's a social butterfly, getting along famously with other dogs and loving those backyard playdates with his pals. Kage is a stunning mix of Lab and Border Collie, the perfect blend of intelligence and family-friendliness. He's just the right size, like a mini Lab or a slightly larger Border Collie. When you find two fantastic things that go together like peanut butter and jelly, you celebrate! Kage is that winning combo, and now you can celebrate by making him a cherished member of your family. His temperament is pure gold - sweet as honey with everyone he meets. Now, here's the scoop: Kage is a special needs pup, and he's looking for someone who can be with him about 90 percent of the time. Storms, rain, and loud noises send him into severe panic attacks, and he's been known to chew through walls when anxiety strikes. Crates aren't his jam because of past storm-related trauma. He's also dealing with seizures, so he's on medication for that. Kage would thrive in a local adoption, and he's best as a single dog with no cats or small animals around. He's a wonderful companion for older kids, and he loves nothing more than cuddles and long walks. He's got the whole house training thing down too. His foster mom adores him and has prepared him for his forever family as best she can. Now, the ball is in your court. Remember, when you adopt Kage, you're not just bringing home a good boy; you're giving him the loving, understanding home he deserves. Don't shop, adopt, because Kage's life depends on it! Local adoption fee is $200 (in TX) Out of state adoption fee is $400 (includes transport to your area - $50 Temporary Fuel Charge will be added)

Story
My name is Atlas, and I'm searching for the best life a good by like me can have. As a border collie mix, intelligence comes naturally to me. I might be a little reserved at first, but give me a little time, and I'll be your devoted companion. I've had a stroke of luck in my life; after being taken to a lovely animal shelter at 8 weeks old, I survived a flood there. Rescued once more, I'm eager to find a forever home where I can be cherished and have my curiosity nurtured. Could you be my perfect match? ##2044104##

Story
I'm Melissa, on a quest for the finest life a good girl like me deserves. Being a border collie mix, smarts are part of my nature. I may seem a bit shy initially, but with a bit of time, I'll become your loyal friend. Fortune has smiled on me; I was brought to a wonderful animal shelter at 8 weeks old and even survived a flood there. Now rescued again, I'm ready to find a permanent home where I can be loved and my inquisitive spirit fostered. Are you the one I'm searching for? ##2044101##
