From commentor DeeLoralei:
I’m in desperate need of someone to rescue a great Border Collie, a three year old female, her name is Elliot and she’s a super terrific dog who needs a new loving home. She keeps picking fights with a female pit bull she lives with and she keeps losing those fights. Tonight for at least the third time in the last year she has picked a fight and has had to go to the ER Vets to get stitches. My friend can’t afford any more vet bills. And she’s not really a dog person. (The three dogs in her household are her daughter’s pets. She’s a cat person and they have 8 cats, also.) I’d take Elliot, but I already have two dogs and two cats. Everyone I know locally who loves dogs already has at least two.
We’re in Memphis, and I’d be willing to drive say 700 miles to deliver this dog to a good, loving home. Can anyone here help? She’s a super dog. She just seems to pick fights with other female dogs. She’s mostly white with some liver-colored spots and ears, and one nice gray/black eye. And she’s smart as a whip, mostly trained and mostly mellow.But she picks fights with the other female dog in her pack. She needs to be an only dog, or at least an only female.
Please Balloon Juice people, come through for this great dog, find her a new forever home. I know most of you are dog lovers.
If you want to help but don’t want to ‘go public’, send me an email (click my name near the top of the right-hand column) and I’ll forward it to DeeLorelai — Anne Laurie
