New England Border Collie Rescue - Helping Border Collies in Need




Sparrow is a lovely and sweet 12-year-old buff and white border collie. She is a healthy, happy girl whose favorite activities include eating and resting, in addition to some wildlife patrol from the fenced in yard here at her foster home. Sparrow has no interest in getting on the "fur"niture; rather, she prefers the most uncomfortable spots on the floor, such as the tile.

Sparrow has very appropriate dog-to-dog skills and has done extremely well with her foster brother and sisters. Her initial response to new dogs is a bit stand-offish, but once she is introduced to a new friend, she is very polite and often tries to initiate play. Sparrow would likely do best in a home with another low-to-medium level energy canine friend. She would be fine as an only dog, however, with all the attention for herself. She has no interest in cats in an indoor setting.

We are currently working with Sparrow on walking more nicely on the leash. She tends to pull a bit, but is learning "easy" and improving very quickly.

She loves running around in her fenced-in yard and is respectful of the physical boundaries. Unfortunately, Sparrow is not a candidate for off-leash adventures, as she will immediately wander off and has only 50/50 recall, even with the tastiest treats awaiting!


If you are willing to provide Sparrow with her forever home, she, in turn, will fill your home--and heart-- with unconditional love.

Sparrow is being fostered in NH.
