Little Grace with Groomer Serena Drake of Val-u-Vet

Little Grace is being fostered in Deltona by Gisele. She is very quiet and well-behaved. She got the full treatment at Val-u-Vet, including grooming by Serena Drake! She did test positive for heartworm, but that doesn’t scare us one bit! She’s a very healthy girl, and we’re starting her heartworm treatment (slow kill) right away. Grace appears to love kids, and she is great with other dogs.

Foster Update:  Grace follows me around, yet she does not have separation anxiety at all.  She is full crate trained.  She would make an awesome dog for an older person, but would also be perfect as an apartment dog.  More importantly, she would adore going to work with her person every day.  She loads up in the car, is a great traveler and would probably enjoy sitting under someone’s desk all day long.  But don’t let her calmness fool you!  When she is outdoors, she loves to run and bark with joy.  She says good morning to the squirrels and birds, and is all Border Collie!

Grace possesses one skill that I have never seen before.  She hunts moles (at least I think that’s what she’s doing).  She combs through the yard with her head down, and listens for underground creatures.  When she finds one, she barks and bounces.  It’s hilarious.  She then uses her nose and proudly shares her findings… but she does not dig.  If you love to garden, Grace might be the perfect helper!

When I recognized what she was doing, I was immediately sad for Little Grace, for is this skill could’ve been recognized at an early age, Grace would have made an awesome detection dog.  She could have been trained as a bug dog, a bomb detection dog, a drug detection dog… you name it.  She is a VERY smart little girl!

Everything a good dog should be!

Little Grace’s Virtual Foster is Nicole Cook, who donated toward her vetting expenses.  Thank you Nicole!

History:  Eight year old purebred Border Collie. *GRACE* DOB: 8-30-04 (8yrs old) ~ ABCA Reg. #257758 ~ Female ~ Black/White Rough Coat.

10/15/12:  Instead of making families, little Grace now has her own family! A Mom, a Dad, and two little kids to call her own!  Little Grace was adopted by the Martin family, who recently lost their senior Border Collie female.  John explained he has been stalking TDL since last April.  When he saw that little Grace was 8 years old and heartworm positive, he figured she didn’t stand much of a chance at being adopted.  I’m thrilled, aren’t you?

John left for a moment to discuss Grace with his wife over the phone, and when he returned, I noticed as he walked up my sidewalk, Little Grace was wagging her tail, and doing the wiggle of joy!  Yeah, she was ready!

Little Grace with John & John!


She has a family to call her own!

  1. I’m soooo glad she was adopted so fast…she reminds me of my KT:) These dogs offer so much love & personality that they really deserve a second chance. I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of it. They really all do become part of the family.

  2. Hello all,
