    hi there :)
    im new here so just thought id share my border collie X with you all:)
    shes just over a year old and in that short time has been living on the streets, had 4 homes, been beaten and had to eat her dead sister to survive!

    But now shes found a loving and very much permanent home with us,
    hope you enjoy the pictures :thumbup:

    She wont let me anywhere near her:confused: i even got out the chocolate drops (it usually does the trick) but instead she went and sat on my other half's lap and hid her head inside his jumper....

    She will love me when im back from p@h with treats, some new toys and dog food!!

    anyways, she needs to love me...im the only one thats ever truly loved her :)

    Its taken alot of hard work to get her looking so well, she weighed 13kg when we got her, today she weighed in at nearly 19 :thumbup:
    Its also taken a heck of alot of dedication to get her looking so happy, being able to be let off her lead and her to come back, it even took weeks before we could leave her and our jack russell together at home alone without her trying to kill him.
    Shes still got a very long way to go as shes not great with other dogs and isnt keep on large groups or people wearing hoods/big jumpers....but shes a working progress, weve only had her since the beginning of march!

    From the look of her you are doing a brilliant job:)
    My auntie has a rescue BC girl (abuse & neglect case) who is now healthy & confident, it's amazing what love & care does to an animal:)

    It most certainly is....
    Sadly though it still amazes me how anyone can neglect or beat an animal,
    alot of the time they dont deserve it, i think people who are found to be doing so need a taste of their own medicine, see how theyd like to not be fed, have to live in a room filled with their own mess, or each time they moved/made a sound they got a punch. Theyd soon be in the same mind frame as their dog!!

    Absolutely no idea!
    alot of people have said she is border collieXGSD because of her ears, but some days you look at her and shes the spitting image of a lurcher. other days she goes all fluffy and looks like a real collie and sometimes she just looks like a mongral....sorry im of no help!

    but were as much in the dark as you are!
