 This is "Little Jilly" on her last assessment around our sheep the day before she was due to be rehomed.
Jilly is 2 yrs old, fully grown and weighs around 11kg, making her one of the smallest Border Collies we have had through the rescue. She has always shown a great desire to herd, strong instincts and drive, keen eye, boundless energy and great spirit.
She has a sweet nature and is very freindly, albeit a little nervous of strangers with the motto - bark first and ask questions later.

Short teaser trailer for "NICE WORK!",

(Theatre trailer at foot of page.)

A sixty minute documentary about the work of Border Collie Rescue, which also looks at some of the dogs the organisation has re-homed over the last 10 years through interviews with their owners.

Re-edited into 6 x 10 minute episodes for YouTube, "NICE WORK!" takes a look at the Border Collie Rescue Assessment and Re-habilitation centre near York, UK and follows the progress of Gael, one of 8 working dogs featured in the 13 part Animal Planet series 'PROJECT PUPPY' as she is being trained to take over the position of lead dog at the centre.

Amongst other dogs featured is Bryn, one of the dogs assessed and rehomed by Border Collie Rescue as a Police sniffer dog for drugs and firearms.
Molly - one of several dogs assessed and re-homed for Search and Rescue Work.
Meg who works cattle and sheep.
Flash, one of Sally's pups now working as a sheepdog and Rab and Fly, selected to be re-homed as a pair so they could use their qualities to help each other overcome the problems that caused them to end up in rescue care.

Directed by Jim Closs, "NICE WORK!" is all about Border Collies - from unwanted pets to RSPCA cruelty cases handed over to BCR for care, re-habilitation and re-homing and the film gives the viewer insight into the ideals and workings of the organisation - but mainly.....it's about the dogs!

Meet the Crew

Here at Border Collie Rescue, we enroll the assistance of well balanced dogs to help us get through to the less fortunate dogs we take in.

These are all rescue dogs that have found a permanent home (and job) helping within the organisation. They are just as important to our work as any other volunteer.

This video is to introduce them to you and show you where they work, rest and play.

It is dedicated to those that went before and are no longer with us. Those of you who met Meg and Mr. Tod will know why.

Training Gael

At Border Collie Rescue we assess every Border Collie we take in around sheep to understand the degree of their herding drive and ability.

Those who need to work livestock are re-homed to be a sheepdog and those who don't can go as companions. To keep the sheep in order we use a trained dog we call a 'control dog'.

This video is of Gael, being trained to become our new control dog. Dot, who you will see in the background is one of our existing trained dogs.

Pan - Blind from birth

Border Collie Rescue offers long term care for some dogs that are difficult to re-home or need more constant care. Pan - a blind Border Collie is one of these.


Initially, she was found a permanent home but the couple split up. Not wishing her to have to risk such an occurrence again, it was decided that she should be permanently fostered and remain under our close supervision.


She was initially trained by Nicki Oliver and this training has been maintained by our foster carers, ensuring that she is very obedie
nt.
   A high degree of verbal control has enabled us to give her more freedom.
This video was shot in widescreen 16.9 format, which is why the perspective is odd!


Puppy Walk

Here are some pups, born at our Assessment and Re-habilitation centre near York, going out for one of their many daily walks together.

 Our own 10+ acres of land is supplemented by several hundred acres of surrounding farmland and farm tracks in remote countryside, allowing plenty of freedom to run and play together.

Foot and Mouth

In 2001 Border Collie Rescue ran a unique scheme with government approval to rescue Border Collies and sheepdogs from infected farms in the UK.


Working under license with MAFF, and later DEFRA, we attended farms that had been culled and disinfected and removed dogs that were made jobless by the cull.


This is a short video about that time.

Jamie's First Assessment

In a routine Border Collie Rescue sheepdog assessment, Jamie, a young red merle rescue Border Collie, is shown sheep for the first time.
This is the first stage of our assessment process for all the dogs we take in.
After all, the Border Collie is first and foremost a sheepdog breed - so if a dog comes into rescue for re-homing it is only right we should go to the trouble of finding out if it is happier working or happier as a pet.
Otherwise the dog, and its new owner, may be in for a lot of trouble.


How would we know if we did not assess them?
We wouldn't!

Case History - Patti

Patti was found as a stray Border collie tied to a caravan in County Durham and came into the Border Collie Rescue centre at a year old in April 2006.
She needed a lot of attention and socialisation before we could even start to assess her but she has plenty of the spirit and energy the breed is known for.
She showed us that she was good at scenting and retrieval so a number of options were open. Search and Rescue - sniffer dog for the Police, Etc. or another similar discipline.
She is in her new home and this video shows her in training for competitive working trials.

Case History - Blue

This Border Collie, Blue, was born on the Island of Taransay during the making of the original BBC TV series 'Castaway'.
He came into Border Collie Rescue care at 6 months old and is now nearly 7. After assessments he was rehomed to be trained as a sheepdog.
Now, with the BBC filming a new program about what happened to the people and the dogs from Castaway we were contacted and asked about his progress and with the agreement of his old owner, Ron Copsey and new owners David and Cathy Calvert we are able to make his case public as a short piece about his new home will be broadcast in the program.

The farm Blue was re-homed into is also a visitors centre in Swaledale North Yorkshire. Visit their website at www.hazelbrow.co.uk

 


New Arrivals - It's BIG dog week !

Meet some of the new arrivals at our centre near York who came in to our care between Sept 16th and 19th 2007.

The 5 Border Collies featured in this video have one thing in common - they are all BIG - between 29 and 37 kilos in weight.

Sam, a Merle from a farm who's owners tried for a long time to train him as a sheepdog, but he showed little or no interest in his sheep.

Nell and her son Bill who came to us after a vet, called in to put them to sleep, advised their previous owner that there WAS an alternative.

Finally, The Boys, two dogs (brothers?) that have come in from the Hambleton Dog Warden Service, Names Unknown.
These two are the largest and most overweight of all being 33+ and 36+ kilos respectively and were abandoned near a caravan site.

We are pleased to be able to offer these Border Collies a new start and a new life.  This is a video of how they came to us.

Our thanks go to Chantelle and Lisa.
