New England Border Collie Rescue - Helping Border Collies in Need





Meet Hope! She is a delightful 4 year old female border collie who came into rescue from a shelter. Hope loves to play ball and gets along really well with her foster siblings. Hope has Addison's disease which is easily controlled through a once every 25 days injection of medication and a small dose of prednisone daily. You can read more about Addison's disease HERE.

Hope's foster family has a dog of their own with Addison's and they will tell you that once being treated there is absolutely no difference in the dog and no restrictions are necessary. Their dog even competes in agility with no issues.

Hope is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations. She is
negative for heartworm and tick borne diseases. She is crate trained and
also house trained. She is reported to be good with children and cats as

We are hoping to find a loving home for her where stress levels are low and where she can have outings or a fenced yard for her playtime. In her old home she spent a lot of time outdoors and we are hoping that her new family will include her as a full fledged member of the family and not leave her outside by herself.

We have noticed some OCD behaviors when she has been outside alone and not interacting with her humans. So a fenced yard is not a necessity as we do think she would thrive with more human contact in her life.

Hope is being fostered in eastern upstate New York.
