All in the Family


Border Collie

Joy was a product of an Ohio Puppy Mill and her puppies were taken away much too soon! Thankfully she was rescued by Indian Summers Border Collie Rescue and lived there for a year until we came along. She had just turned 3. She is so sweet and all she wants is a LOT of love. She has a few fear issues, but loved us immediately. She loves our cat Safari, 11. She herds and tries to kiss him all the time! She LOVES to go anywhere in the car and for long walks at the park. Our dog Bailey,a Border Collie/Collie mix, who was featured on here, sadly passed away October 28th. Before she died she promised she would find me the perfect dog and she did, 6 months later. Bailey's presence is still very much in this house and we have been writing a blog of letters to each other ( and it is becoming a book, called Bailey's Journal. Working dogs never stopped working. Joy is just like her in so many ways, just happy to be rescued, have a real home of her own and eager to please. Her name was given to her by her grandma,Victoria Summers, who has the rescue and she could not have picked a better one. She is truly a Joy!

Hey, this is sooo not fair. How come Joy is not on a leash, but me? What I do to deserve this? Anyway, I still love my humans and Joy very much:-).

hi sherri...I've enjoyed reading Bailey's blog. Joy is such a pretty girl; she reminds me of my beautiful Sasha dog who passed away last month when she was a young dog...only she was a tri-color and had a tail! Dr. Summers has worked with me on adopting a new BC. She's been so kind and helpful. It is so hard to move on, and I miss my little girl so terribly much. But it does my heart glad to see Joy in her happy "forever home".
