    Through another online community I belong to, I got this message:

    "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…

    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… 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.

    I rescued her when she was a puppy. She needs someone that can handle her energetic strong willed self. She has become more dog aggressive and food aggressive. She barks and gets excited easily outside but inside she is calm unless another dog is around. I want her to go to a home that someone can help her. She probably needs to be an only pet or on a farm with lots of room to run. She is okay with my cat until she comes near her food. I will screen all applicants. I want her to go to someone that knows what they are doing I will check vet references and home life. She needs so much time and training but she is worth it. No re-homing fee just a forever home please."

    She's tried the local BC rescue, but they don't have room. Does anyone have any ideas? Anyone here looking for an agility prospect?

    Here's pictures of Elliot:

    Good news - it looks like Elliot may have found a new home. I'm really glad; her story and photos really got to me.
