Border Collie - Young - Female
Adoptable Medium Spayed/NeuteredUp-to-date with routine shotsPrefers No CatsPrefers No Kids

Lady is now available for adoption… Here is her history with us.

This is Lady she is an owner surrender in Odessa, TX and apparently the owners didn’t want to feed her. With a lot of coordination through Herd U Needed A Home we are going to be able to fly her here by the weekend. She will need to see a vet and also spend 2 weeks in an isolation kennel. I found an amazing place near me where I can go see her daily and she will be treated like family.

There is HOPE for LADY!! ?? Lady was seen in Bend and was diagnosed with a diaphragmatic hernia. Her liver, spleen and possibly a kidney are all in her chest cavity. There is a specialty surgeon in Bend that is one of the best at repairing this type of damage but it is upwards of $5000 for the procedure. I know that so many of you have kindly donated to help her and it has helped sooo much but now we need to do some additional fund raising to get her this life saving procedure. Without it she wont have much more time with us.

As Lady is feeling better we are learning what kind of home she needs.Lady is a very active girl, good with other dogs, will chase cats and probably best with kids 12 and up. She’s about 2 years old

PLEASE PROVIDE A PHONE NUMBER WITH YOUR INQUIRY. Note: preference will be given to working/herding situations, ranches, farms, large acreages, horseback homes, and agility/trial homes.
Please no apartment or condo living…

All stock dogs need lots of mental and physical stimulation to be happy and to stay out of trouble. A short walk around the block is not going to be sufficient. Herding breeds do best when they have a ”job” to do which occupies most of their day. This can be herding livestock, horseback riding, hiking in the mountains or on the beach, mountain biking, playing extended games of fetch, or agility games. They are incredibly smart and love to learn tricks and solve problems. Be sure that you research this breed carefully before committing to living with a herding dog.
