Arrived into Rescue in 2013 at 9 months old
RESIDENT RYE has been in rescue for seven years, arriving at 9 months old in 2013, given up due to his intensity. Over the years living with the Founder, Rye proved to be extremely challenging with many OCD traits including car chasing. His early start and/or breeding led to some distrust of strangers, too, making him a tough combination for any normal adopter. Thankfully, Glen Highland had space for Rye and he benefited from a heavily managed and protective life. We are committed to him to his last day.
In a wonderful way, Rye’s maturation, now 8 years old, has been a blessing…he is much more affectionate, actually seeking time for a cuddle and very, very compliant when asked to do anything at all. Aging can be good! He is still madly ball crazy and will go for any toss any time however his front leg injury, from before rescue, prohibits too much running. If Rye is not restricted, he will endlessly wear himself out in ball play and then be unable to even walk. We finally had to reach for anxiety medication to handle his odd reactions to everything and we are glad we did. Rye loves the action of the big pack but mostly loves his ball! He is a much happier, more settled Border Collie now, enjoying life as a Santuary Resident.
