New England Border Collie Rescue - Helping Border Collies in Need


(see below)


Hanzo came to NEBCR from the Flat Creek Border Collie confiscation case. He is estimated to be around 2.5 years old and had lived outdoor his whole life before NEBCR took him in.

Since arriving at his foster home, he has made a huge turn around. He arrived basically feral (afraid of people). He now enjoys a human touch, getting brushed/ groomed, and will even jump up on the couch just to 'hang out'.

He's not a big fan of his crate, but does well confined in a room when left home alone. He likes toys and bully sticks A LOT! He will chew and chew but very easily and nicely gives it up when asked.

He has not yet learned the art of 'playing'. He like to run around the fenced yard and will chase a toy or ball but not pick it up and not retrieve it. He walks very nicely on leash and would definitely enjoy leash walking daily.

He is a big boy, weighing about 50 lbs and is still a little on the slim side. He is particular about his food and we have to 'change it up' to keep him eating. His favorite foods are pizza crust and hot dogs.

Hanzo has been in rescue since January 2014. In that time he has learned:
- his name
- how to potty outside
- how to use the dog door
- how to play appropriately with other dogs
- that people aren't so bad
- that with grooming comes hot dogs
- basic house manners

He is still working on:
- being in a crate for more than 3 hours
- not counter surfing (getting better)

Hanzo's foster mom has fallen in love with this big goofball and knows he will bring daily joy to a lucky family!

Hanzo is currently being fostered in eastern upstate NY.
