More Adoptable Dogs

These dogs have not actually come into our rescue program, but they need homes nonetheless. We have posted their pictures and information as a courtesy to the individuals, shelters, and rescue groups who are trying to find homes for them.

If you have a Border Collie or BC mix that needs posting, ETBCR will be glad to post referral listings for individuals looking to find a home for Border Collies and obvious Border Collie mixes within a 400-mile radius of Knoxville, TN. Referral dogs must be spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, have had a negative heartworm test, and be on regular heartworm preventive. This will be verified by ETBCR representatives. For more information, please see our ETBCR FAQ.

Helo is a 7 year-old border collie mix that is in great need of rehoming. His elderly owner got him from Young-Williams Animal Shelter many years ago but is no longer able to care for him. She fell last week and needs to have assistance. Unfortunately, the nursing staff cannot get to her to help because Helo is so protective of her that he doesn't want to let strangers in the house. He is a sweet boy and has never had an instance of meanness his whole life before now. We are desperately trying to avoid returning him to the shelter.

If you are interested in adopting Helo or want more information, please email Virginia.
