Border Collie Rescue is a registered specialist canine breed rescue organisation based in the UK and covering the whole country. 

They are run and staffed by volunteers. It has always been a basic premise of this charity that those involved in helping the dogs should be doing so because they are driven by a love and respect of the breed rather than the expectations of payment for doing a job. 

Part of their work involves assessing all the dogs we take in around sheep and other livestock to ascertain their working ability in order to be able to consider these factors before re-homing because they believe any Border Collie, but particularly a puppy, should always have a chance to work and fulfill its natural instincts.

If being a sheepdog is what it needs to do to have a happy and fulfilled life, we should find that out and facilitate it.
