New England Border Collie Rescue - Helping Border Collies in Need




HoBeau is a two to three year old neutered male Australian shepherd. He is in border collie rescue at the request of the shelter who captured him back in September when he was seen running loose for at least three weeks. He had no collar, no tags, no microchip so nothing is known about his history.

HoBeau has come a long way in foster care. He is fearful but not in an aggressive way at all, just in a shy and move away sort of way. He has been with his foster family now for 8 months and while he will come and seek attention and treats from them, he really does not want pets.

If HoBeau is leashed he will walk nicely and he has also learned to sit and lie down. He has been introduced to agility.

He is fine with all of the dogs he has met, not aggressive to any. He loves to run around and play in the fenced yard and often engages in a game of tug with the resident dogs.


HoBeau will need some very special people who can keep on encouraging him to trust. Another playful dog in the home would be great but we will consider a home as an only dog as that may help him bond more to humans.

HoBeau is being fostered in Eastern upstate NY.
