Boo Boo- 971
Boo Boo was found locked up in an enclosure at a Texas panhandle recreational area without food or water. Every effort was made to try and find an owner with no luck. She appears to have been loved in her past life because she adores her foster dad and spends many hours at his feet as he works from his home office. Boo Boo loves to go in the truck, and can’t wait to be your ride or die buddy.
She walks at a perfect heel on the leash and has impeccable house manners. Boo knows basic commands and is completely house and crate trained. We are guessing she is a mix of BC/Aussie and Antolian Shepherd. She is being fostered in the Amarillo area but travel toward her forever family.
Raven - 987
Hi there! My name is Raven! I am a 6 month old Border Collie mix! My siblings and I had a rough start to the world ending up in the shelter at just 8 weeks old and then my parents were sadly euthanized due to the shelter being full. Luckily my 3 siblings and I were saved by this wonderful rescue!
I am a very playful and happy girl. I love to play with toys and my foster mom’s 8 month old kitten! He is my best friend! I like to run and play with sticks in my foster mom’s yard on her ranch! I am learning that deer are not scary and skunks are not friends! I am VERY food motivated! My foster mom says I have great herding tendencies and would do best in a home that is active. I am still learning how to walk on a leash but my foster mom has been working with me on off leash commands. I know sit, lay down and I am working on how to stay. I do well in the car but still get a little car sick but my foster mom says that I will grow out of it soon.
I love people and I am getting so much socializing when I go to work with my foster mom! My foster mom loves me lots and hopes to find my forever home!
Hello my name is Coal. I am 6 months old. I am a Border Collie X German shepherd mix. I weigh about 48 pounds right now and am estimated to be about 60 lbs full grown.
I LOVE my foster siblings so much but can be very shy with new dogs for the first few hours or day.... then they better be prepared to rough house! I love my foster cat siblings as well. Because I am a puppy it's very tempting to play with them so my foster mom makes me not play with them. I love every one I meet. I love kids big and small. I am pretty hit or miss if I will instantly love you or need to "warm up". But with normal puppy socialization work I have come far and will only get better.
I crate at night like a champ. I mean really... id there was a prize for racing to get into bed to fullfill my nightly routine... I'd win 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. I kennel when left home alone with treat and puzzle toys with no problems. I am good at keeping myself entertained when the other dogs are tired.
I am potty trained and know to go kick the door when I need out. I will be fully house broke in no time... but we aren't there yet... just ask my mom's wall. I am super smart and energetic. I will need a home with another young dog to play with, someone who wants a running buddy, or a family who wants to give me a job!
I definitely have a serious sniffer and may even be good at scent work. I am a natural at agility. But most of all I want someone to cuddle me and love me forever.
I had a pretty hard start to life. My mom and dad were surrendered to the shelter to only be euthanized because the shelter was beyond full. Then me and my siblings were surrendered to the same scary place. Luckily, I was rescued from there. Just in time because I became very sick from parvo virus and had to be hospitalized for over 48 hours. Then my foster mom nursed me back to health. Now she just wants a forever home for me. She loves me a lot so only serious and puppy experienced applicants, please!
Sammie - 833
Meet Sammie, a BC mix, male, 40 pounds, neutered, and UTD on all shots and HW preventative. He is around 6 years old. Sammy is a sweet and very shy dog. He is not comfortable around men, he is not mean, just won’t stay in the room with them. He is great with cats. Small kids easily startle him and he will hide. His foster home has spent time letting Sammie gain confidence. He is now more at ease around strangers. He needs to be allowed to warm up to people at his own pace. Forcing this guy will only increase his anxiety.
Once this boy gets to know you, he is loving, and seeks attention. He likes to be in the room with his people and will lay his head in your lap, or hang out on a bed or cool tile with a toy. We do not know what his background was that caused him to lose trust but we are pretty sure it had to do with a man. Sammie is a gentle soul, even with his anxiety, has never lashed out in fear. He is very treat driven.
Sammie would be best as an only dog, with no small children, and may never approach the man in the house. He would be best in the home of women only. He craves attention and will be your shadow once he warms up to you. He is a calm, low key dog and will go to his crate if he is uncomfortable. His foster home keeps a nice plush dog bed and chew toys for him in his crate, and is a haven where he can decompress. At night he loves to be in the bedroom with you on a nice big comfy dog bed. If you can find it in your heart to be a patient home for this boy, you will have a best friend for life. Please someone step up for sweet Sammie, he deserves a home!
Tucker - 855
Tucker is a 2 year old male border collie mix who looks more like a golden mix. Tucker is very smart and loves training. Due to his brilliant mind, although he might love you right away, will need time and patience to gain his trust. Tucker is a happy dog and super fun to train.
Tucker spent a great deal of time with one of the best trainers in Texas Karen Deeds to work on his resource guarding and leash reactivity. He now has a great foundation that will need to be continued and reinforced in his forever home. He will come with all the training resources.
Tucker will do best with a person who enjoys training him as much as he does and won’t mind reinforcing boundaries from day one by creating structure and routine which helps to create a better relationship. Tucker will need both mental and physical stimulations. He loves other dogs as long as there are no resources (toys/food) and the other dog is mature and calm.
Training Tucker is so rewarding and fun. He will love you and entertain you with his goofy nature. He loves to talk and will wake you up by making small sounds from his crate. He can be your running or cycling buddy by patiently teaching him your pace. No small animals or cats as he has a high prey drive. He will do best in an adult only home to prevent access to items he may want to steal like children's toys and food.
If you have patience and time and love training an intelligent dog you will quickly gain his trust which is so gratifying. In return you have the funny smart dog buddy Tucker! Tuckers’ trainer calls him a fun jerk with lots of attitude and spunk!
Willow - 954
Hello everyone! My name is Willow the wild child and it’s lovely to meet you all! Let me tell you a little about myself - I’m a sweet girl who is looking for a home that’ll take me in and teach me that not all humans are bad. Someone willing to let me zoom around the backyard chasing a ball or another dog. Someone who likes cuddles in the evening and will give me all the yummy treats I deserve (which is all of them, I promise ).
I am around 1.5-2 years, up to date on all my yucky shots and fixed. I am around 35lbs and currently in the DFW area! I came to BCRR after being surrendered because I was spending too much time in my crate alone. I didn’t like that, I love people and other dogs too much for that! I’d love a home with another fur friend to help me fully come out of my shell and learn how to be a real dog again.
I need a little work on my leash training but my foster mom says I’m doing so much better than when she first got me! If you’re someone looking for a new adventure, a new friend to enjoy life with and a new friend to keep you active - I am the girl for you!!
Stella - 995
This is Stella!
Stella is a spayed, 45lb golden mix, with what we believe may also be border collie. She is approximately 2 years old, house trained, crate trained, up to date on vaccines and prevention, heart worm negative, and getting along very well with her foster siblings.
Stella is a bouncing ball of joy, she definitely has that golden energy and love. She aims to please and always looking for an adventure. She came to BCRR looking for rescue when her previous parents found they just didnt have enough time in the day to give her the play time she needed.
She adjusted quickly into her foster home and loved all the attention. Her foster parents believe she would be a great addition to any home. Stella is unphased by the bad of the world and only sees greatness. She is all joy and excitement and loves to play chase.
Stella has not officially been tested with cats, but her foster parents think a home without them would be best. She has been around small children and did wonderfully, though still believe she (and any pup) should be supervised.
COMING SOON: Stormi - 1008
Stormi is a 9 month old, female, 33 pound, Border Collie mix currently located in San Antonio. She is heart worm negative and up to date on her vaccines. Stormi came to us after being relinquished to a Midland shelter due to her previous owners not having time for her. This sweet girl was on the euthanasia list (because of over crowding at the shelter) when she was rescued by BCRR.
Stormi knows sit, down, and is working on more basic commands like walking on a leash and not jumping when excited. Stormi is kennel trained and 98% potty trained. She loves other dogs and is friendly with men, women, and children. She has not been tested on cats but she does have a very sweet nature. Stormi loves to play with her foster fur brother, run around outside, and be loved on by humans. Stormi would do well in a household where she has multiple humans to give her attention and at least one other dog who loves to play.
Despite all she has been through, Stormi has adapted and is a cheerful, happy, sweet puppy who is looking for a family to give her the love and attention she deserves for the rest of her life. She will be ready for adoption mid December after being spayed.
