My family has owned Border Collies and Border Collie crosses for longer than I can remember. When I was finally able to get a dog as an adult, Border Collie Rescue was my first port of call having fallen in love with a photo of Lucy (a Border Collie cross). Following her, I adopted another cross (Raccoon renamed Rocket). Border Collies climb into your heart in a way very few dogs can. Having adopted two dogs, slowly I ended up doing home checks for the rescue and well the rest is history that I blame Julie for.
