Today's Animal in Need

Rembrandt is a four year old male. He is truly one amazing dog! He came to us from an AL shelter after being dumped. With his loving and gentle ways, he instantly became the favorite among the shelter volunteers. PRBCR rescued him as his time was up. 
In the process of vetting him, we found out he was heartworm positive. He came to NC to be fostered and treated for HW. On the way to his new foster home, one of the volunteers that transported him noticed his hips were "wonky" (her word!) so, we had the vet check him out. X-rays revealed a major fracture of his pelvis! Throughout his stay at the shelter, getting neutered and vaccinated, and the transport all the way to NC, this gentle soul never uttered a sound or alerted us to his discomfort. His greatest desire is to be loved and showered with affection. That is all he has asked of me. 
His pelvis may leave him a bit gimpy, so competitive sports are not for him. But if you are looking for a mildly active companion, you will not want to miss out on him. I guarantee, he is worth every mile you may need to drive to come meet him! I cannot say enough about this truly exceptional dog.

We are a small volunteer-staffed group dedicated to finding new permanent, loving homes for border collies in need, and also in educating the public about the nature of the breed, so that rescue will be less necessary in the future. We mainly service South Carolina but as resources allow, can rescue and place dogs in adjoining areas of North Carolina and Georgia. We are registered with the state of South Carolina as a charitable organization and we are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
