Its not letting me respond to you on my profile page. But yes...she is a rescue. We got her from Lakeshore PAWS. She's been abused in the past. She has behavior issues: biting, anger, jealousy, peeing in her crate, anxiety, etc. I've managed to train most of it out since we got her 8 months ago. She also came with health issues: giardia and heartworm. She gave the cat (also a rescue but from 14 years ago) giardia. The whole experience has been rough on the family but I've been the glue holding it together. She is now very much our "daughter" and we love her dearlySorry about that. Yes,collies are known to be smart.
