    .Border Collie Rescue - Shetland Tess 1 - The Phantom Menace .

    Staying on the Scottish Theme, hope you all enjoy this one.


    Tess had spent just over 4 months, from September 09 to February 2010, as a stray. Running wild on Staney Hill overlooking Lerwick on the Shetland Islands.

    We understand she had been kept on a farm to be trained as a sheepdog but did not show any interest in herding so in September 2009, she had been given away to a lad to be kept as a family pet. Within a week of him taking her home, she had run off and in spite of all his efforts, she would not come back to him.

    In spite of efforts of dog wardens and many local people, Tess had vanished and remained out of human contact for long periods of time. On the odd occasions she was sighted, she stayed well out of reach, running away if people approached her.

    This past winter has been particularly bad on Shetland, with heavy, prolonged, snowfall and temperatures down below -15c on some occasions.

    There is a lot more text to read when you go to the video.

    Border Collie Rescue offers long term care for some dogs that are difficult to re-home or need more constant care. Pan - a blind Border Collie is one of these.
    Initially, she was found a permanent home but the couple split up. Not wishing her to have to risk such an occurrence again, it was decided that she should be permanently fostered and remain under our close supervision.
