New England Border Collie Rescue - Helping Border Collies in Need





Zac is a handsome, 10 year old, curly coated boy. He came from a shelter and little is known about his past. He is a healthy and active dog. His favorite game is tug, and he also likes to go for walks and catching balls or frisbees. He'd rather you fetched them for him, at this point, as he hasn't figured out that if he brings them back to you you'll throw them again!

If you want a dog who really loves people, Zac would love to live with you. He loves to shadow his foster mom everywhere. He loves meeting new people, especially when they give him attention and tummy rubs! And treats! He will pretty much do anything for a treat! He is a very smart guy and knows several tricks including Sit, stay, down, roll over, shake, and spin, and he is currently working on going out and around a post, unwind and come.

Zac, being a border collie, needs an adopter prepared to keep him active and mentally exercised. He needs a child free home and is a one without cats and small animals - they are just much too exciting for him! He does fine with other dogs but those with high energy really put him into an extremely overstimulated state, and therefore he'd do best with quiet, low key dogs, or as an only dog. He's fine out and about with other dogs and isn't aggressive - he just gets really wound up and frantic when living with other high energy dogs.

He's really looking for a fresh start where he can be your best friend? Do you need a new best friend? Zac is ready and waiting to meet you!!

Zac is being fostered in eastern upstate NY.
