JIM, an 11 year old Border Collie, is not only a gorgeous Border Collie, he is THE sweetest guy around. He just wants to be near to his person and be their shadow, wherever they go. A really good-natured, easy going Border Collie, he would blossom with someone devoted to him. Jim gives his whole heart with lots of affection, cuddling near and such a love-bug. He is incredibly gentle.

Jim is learning all about home life, even seeing TV for the first time along with the odd sounds coming from a ‘big box’. He was adorable trying to sort what was really going as ’The Crown’ show caught his attention. Since Jim’s hearing is compromised, he needed reassurance as he heard the sounds.

He is also learning about relaxing without the stimulation of sheep since his history involves working. Jim was a young, well -trained working dog in Wales though once he lost his hearing, he landed in Michigan, bought by someone to be a breeding dog. Once that person became ill, Jim needed a chance for a totally new life with the help of Glen Highland.

Jim is loving the cozy, warm home he finds himself in but will benefit from a patient person who guides him through all the new things he’s now experiencing. He clearly loves exploring the outdoors and trusts whomever gently helps him. He is very good in the car, walks on a leash well and is crate trained though we are giving him lots of freedom to explore inside a home setting.

Jim is not yet comfortable with the other rescue dogs so needs more time before we decide if he is a solo dog or can easily live with others. As a former stud dog recently neutered, this is not unusual.

 

HEALTH CHALLENGES:
All the vetting indicates Jim is in great health though we are checking his back-end gait to be sure he is not in any orthopedic pain. With running, Jim will be lame in a back leg. Soon as we have clarity on his physical need, we’ll update his bio.

In loving memory of GH resident ASHER. Still loved. - Sandy, Mike and GH alum Ace

So grateful Jim is coming to you. I wish I could take him but not the best time to bring a new dog into my pack. So grateful for GHF. - Gretchen Rierson
