Home to Home Success Story: Luky
When a wonderful family reached out looking to rehome their young border collie, we were happy to help. They had done a great job with him, but felt that he wasn’t getting enough stimulation in the home. Our trainer and staff worked with the family to better understand Luky’s needs and how to set him up for success. We all agreed that due to his age and breed that he would do better staying in the home while we found a fit. His family agreed and we all set out to find his next family via our Home to Home program.
Through the Home to Home program, a dog that needs to be rehomed, but who may have behavioral or medical barriers to a successful stay in the kennel, is fostered by their owner until the pet finds a home. We work with the family to determine the best fit for their dog. We generate an accurate profile for the dog, we list the profile and photos on the website, and provide him or her exposure to potential adopters. We take in inquiries and process applications to determine best fit. We then set up a meet at the shelter with the approved applicants.
Through this process, we were able to find an amazing woman named Ann. She lived on a sheep farm in Vermont with her other border collie. She had had many borders and understood the breed well. In fact, she had years of experience in positive-reinforcement training and agility work. We couldn’t have asked for a better fit!
Fast forward to our latest update:
“Just an update on Luky (now named Liam) he is a great dog and very smart – I think he is very comfortable in his new home and loves his new girlfriend (see picture) – he also loves being outside and has been off leash since the first week he got here and comes when he his called almost 100 percent of the time (he is still young). He also loves leaves and spends many hours out in the field with my old horse!! They have a strange attraction to each other – go figure but I love him to pieces – thank you so much for finding him for us!”
