Rollin' Roosevelt

Uploaded: December 16, 2010


Roosevelt is a young border collie who was born with unusable front legs. With his wheeled cart, he is able to run and play with other dogs and fetch his beloved toys. Roosevelt is currently in the care of New England Border Collie rescue as he awaits his forever home.

Thank you Allen!
Roosevelt was one lucky pup to land in the caring hands of NEBCR volunteers who have done a wonderful job of meeting his needs. They will be there to support whoever adopts Roosevelt. #9110382

Thank you Susie!
Even without the wheels, Roosevelt does remarkably well. He is a typical high drive border collie! #9110517

Thanks Joy!
Roosevelt is coming up on his first birthday... His mother was surrendered to NEBCR while pregnant. He is very happy in his current foster home with several other canine companions. #9110863

Thanks Kathleen!
Roosevelt still is looking for his forever home...foster care, however good, is not the same as permanency. #9113380

Wonderful image, Melinda! I once had a Border Collie and she was the most amazing and intelligent dog! I do hope Roosevelt finds a permanent situation. Heart warming capture! #9120485

Thanks Tom!
BCs are incredible dogs but they are not the dog for everyone! NEBCR does a great job of finding appropriate homes. #9121088
