Go for it! Border Collies in my opinion are the BEST dogs! Upon coming to Clovis, NM I wanted a dog to keep me company. I was checking out online sites, craigs list and the local pound but i was staying in hotel (waiting to close on my house) that didn't allow pets. At the back of the hotel i saw a border collie laying underneath a hawking my every move. I didn't think much of it and went on about my business. About two days later, i saw him again. I sat down on the curb and he came trotting and sat down next to me. He was in some bad shape, his fur was matted and was quit skinny. I advertised him on social media sites, craigslist and at the local pet store...and i am so thankful that no one claimed him. My thought is go for it! Rescue dogs know that it's their second chance and they thank you for it!

Thanks everyone for the support. He had a hard time getting used to his kennel and did keep me up for a good portion of the night but he did finally fall asleep and he was out cold on his back this morning when I got up. The cat is going ok just keeping a really close eye on him and he really doesn't want anything to do with her. I think it will just take some time but I think both will be ok.

Aw...what a cutie. There is a fulltimer here at the park I'm in presently who is living in a small 5th wheel with 2 border collies. He seems to be doing well. Only problem is they are serious barkers. So, if you can work with your boy and keep him happy and quiet and exercised, you should be fine. Kongs are great to leave with him in his crate. Freeze sardines or peanut butter & they will last longer.
Crate/kennel also keeps them safe from eating stuff they shouldn't!

Absolutely awesome! There are so many dogs out there that are wonderful and deserve a loving home. Good for you!

P.S. Both of our Wirehair Fox Terriers came out of puppymills. They have taken a lot of work but it is so rewarding. Once they bond with you, you have the most loyal dog imaginable.

We have two dogs that go every where with us as pictured. Their not only good company but are good burglar alarms.

Congrats on your new family member! He's adorable! Next time you're at Walmart, go to the sports section, and buy a CASE of tennis me, you'll need the whole case. ;0)

We play "hide the ball" games all the time. We put them in drawers, pockets, in cabinets, under blankets, anywhere, and our girl finds them. Just amazing to watch.
