New England Border Collie Rescue - Helping Border Collies in Need



Meena is a wee gal who is as energetic as she is adorable. She was relinquished to a NYC shelter when her previous owners moved. Though the shelter reported that Meena was noise sensitive, her foster home has not found that to be accurate. She has not reacted to the truck/train/lawn mower sounds, and only becomes slightly nervous with thunderstorms. It is more likely that the many stimuli of living in the city was too overwhelming.

Meena is looking for a home in a more suburban/rural location where she will have another doggie pal to play ball with. Her ideal playmate shouldn't mind her assertive overtures to initiate play - which include pawing, barking and nudging - whether it be ball or chase. Though she loves her doggie pals, Meena also realizes the importance of her People. After all, who is going to throw the ball for her and her buddy?

Little Meena is a finicky eater. She currently weighs about 25 lbs, though her ideal weight should be around 30. The only way her foster home has successfully enticed her to try new foods + treats is if the other dogs in the house are excitedly waiting their turn for handouts.

Her repertoire of obedience commands is growing she knows how to sit + lay down, and her foster home has been working on leash manners, stay, recall, and teaching her that barking will not get her what she wants. She can be wary of people reaching for her collar, so we are associating the hand-reach with good things (treats, ball tosses).

Meena has met quite a few strangers and a few children. Though she can be a bit shy on initial meeting, ignoring her or tossing a ball for her will let her know that you're not so scary. Dog savvy children over 10 would be fine as long as the children are aware that Meena may try to grab the ball from their hands. She is respectful of cats.

Meena is up to date on shots + HW preventative, is microchipped, and is crate + housetrained. She is being fostered in eastern Massachusetts.

**Meena will be spayed prior to adoption and will be available to go home the first week of September**
