Arrival Story:
Shell is a foster dog. She showed up at someone's home after July4. The people contacted East Tennessee Border Collie Rescue, who then contacted me. A friend and I went to pick her up, not knowing what to expect. Shell greated us as soon as we pulled in. She was friendly and curious. As soon as we grabbed her collar to put her in the vehicle, she got suddenly scared and ran away. It took us a package of chicken and 45 minutes to coax her out from under their car and get a leash on her.

Bio:
It has been a long road getting her to trust us, but it has paid off. Shell is very sweet and loving. She now will let us put a leash on her, grab her collar, and put her in a crate. She is great with the other dogs and loves new people. Shell is going to be taught some basic obedience and will be housetrained before she is adopted out. Do you have a loving, understanding home for Shell?

Shell's Tale


Adopted!

Shell has been through a lot and is finally on her way to a new home. Her new owners met her yesterday. There was an immediate connection and I know that she will be loved. Shell came to me scared, with tape wrapped around her tail and leg. She was terrified of having her collar touched and of leashes. She stayed under the coffee table. Now Shell has come out of her shell. She is loving and sweet. She loves to go for walks and we can handle her collar and put her on a leash. She has traded her coffee table for the couch! Hurray Shell!
