Arrival Story:
A friend gave her to us.

A friend had bought her as a gaurd dog for their geese and found out the hard way that Border Collies are herding dogs, not gaurd dogs. When she started to herd cows in the nearby fields, the owners of the cows got angry and said that he would shoot her if he saw her herding his cows again. So they gave her to us. She is an amazing dog, but she has become dog-aggressive because of how she had lived in the past (she ran around with the Coyotes). So I can't do agility with her and have to keep her away from our other dogs. But with training she has become much better around other dogs (I can now call her and she will come even if she were off leash and sees another dog). She also has an amazing pedigree. She is registered with the ABCA (American Border Collie Assoc). We used her as a breeding dog before we understood how many dogs (even Border Collies) were dying in shelters every day. She is now retired from breeding. She had three litters of beautiful puppies before being retired from breeding. We only bred her once every other year, and were very careful to screen the puppy buyers carefully. We are still in touch with most of the families and made sure they understand that if anything happens and they are not able to care for the pup it comes back to us (we have gotten one of our pups back since then). Now we are VERY active in all breed rescue instead of breeding.

How I found my home

Hi, my name is Bandit and I would like to tell you how I found this wonderful home. I started life out at my breeder's house and went to live at a new home when I was around 8 - 10wks old. This new family had bought me to guard their geese. When I grew up, they kept me outside all of the time. I missed being with them, but I loved to herd the geese into and out of the pond. It was alot of fun!! Also, our neighbors had a herd of cattle. The cattle were fun to herd also!! I had fun herding all of the animals every day. Eventually I started to get lonely, then one day I met a few cyoties and we would play together almost every night. It got to where I didn't really want to go back home anymore, I finally had some friends!! Then one day I heard my owners calling for me and I came back. There was another family there at my house. I came and said hi to the new family and they talked alittle bit to my owners. Then they put a leash on me and took me into their car. They became my new family!! I was 2yrs old when this happened. They started to work with my training soon after I came home with them. My mom said that she wanted to teach me how to run in agility, but after some time they saw that I am not real good with other dogs (because I learned to much from the cyoties). So they decided that I shouldn't do agility (my family was worried that I would go beat up another dog). Well, after contacting my breeder (they got her number from my first owner), and after doing alot of research on my pedigree, they decided to breed me. My first litter, I had nine beautiful puppies, and I loved every one of them. You can still see one of those puppies (Blazing Fire), we decided to keep her. This helped me to get along with other dogs, as well as confirming that I had just learned to be dog aggressive (all of my puppies LOVE other dogs). In my whole breeding carier I've only had three litters (Patch is another one of my babies). And now I've been retiared, and my mom has decided to get into rescue and not breed anymore. Now I can run around and play with my puppies, and I am OK with most submissive dogs now, I just don't like dominant dogs (And I don't like Carma, I don't know why yet, but I just don't like her).
