Ace is a 6-7 year old purebred Border Collie who came from a breeder/ rancher. Ace was a working dog, herding cattle and siring several litters of puppies. His owner wanted to retire Ace and work with a rescue to find him a FURever home where he could become a house pet and enjoy the comforts of life.
Initially, Ace was very hesitant around new people. He actually escaped from his temporary foster in Austin immediately after coming into rescue. We were able to find and capture him with the help of a wonderful volunteer trapping group and moved him to a more permanent foster with some land where he could acclimate to a new life in a home situation similar to where he came from. Since that time, he has become a lot friendlier with people and really enjoys the company of other dogs. He is engaging more and more with both dogs and his foster, and has learned that sleeping on the bed is super comfy. He still is learning to trust people but he has a decent recall and will come when called. He is likely going to remain a moderately active dog who will do good with another pup to play with, or would probably make a great running partner for someone who is willing to put a little bit of work into getting Ace leash prepared.
