Tiny Dancer, the mini Border Collie ~ Adopted

This adorable little girl weighs about 20 pounds.  She is affectionate and very intelligent.

Amy Benz writes:  “Ladies — In the melee surrounding today’s transport, I never did get to share the little border collie girl’s story with you. The brother of one of the shelter workers found her roaming around his property. She was full of milk and crying. The brother and his friends searched the property and surrounding areas for hours, but could not find her puppies. They believe that someone kept her pups, but grew tired of her and simply dumped her off in the middle of the country. Gwinnett is a rural county and apparently this happens quite a bit out there. The brother then gave the dog to his sister, who took her to the shelter where she works.  Several kennel workers told me that she was the smartest dog in the whole shelter.

All I know is that when I was approached her pen and placed my hand on the glass, she put her paw up to my hand as if to say, “Help me.” Of course, you know that was the end of that! She’s a shy, skittish diamond in the rough right now, but I know with a little rest, some home cooking, and lots of kindness, she’ll be shining in no time. All she wants is some love and attention. If you let her, she’ll climb right into your lap and park herself there!

By the way, according to Khaz, Gwinnett County has the lowest adoption rate in the area. That means this little girl was a real find. Way to go, Dog Liberators!”

Incredible Focus

Tiny Dancer has been with me here in Deltona for a few days.  She is incredibly affectionate and has an unbelievable focus.  She sits and stares at you, waiting for a command.  She’s had a very hard life, and has been through a lot of trauma the past few weeks.  Spaying a female who has just had a litter is very risky.  Tiny Dancer met Dr. Oliver yesterday, at Val-u-Vet, we were all concerned about her spay.  However, with extra pampering by Megan and I, she woke up this morning frisky and ready to start her new journey!

I believe that Tiny Dancer could be an incredible performance dog.  Her size alone would make her a great fly ball dog.  But performance is something she would do to please you, because pleasing her human, and being loved is what she wants the most.

Emotionally, Tiny Dancer was very confused and fretful, still showing those signs of being motherly and protective.  I can’t imagine what she must think.

Tiny Dancer loves children… well, she loves anyone that will sit still, pet her, and let her convince you that she should be on your lap!  I can’t say enough how smart she is, and how easy she will be to train.  For now, we’re working on the basics, and taking things slow.  Updates will be coming soon!

Make sure you look through Tiny Dancer’s extensive photo album.
