REX is a gorgeous red and white Blue-Eyed Husky / Border collie mix. We consider REX a special needs boy who needs a special home. REX needs to be an only pet. No cats, no dogs, no livestock whether indoor or outdoor. REX does very well in his current foster home. We would like to find him an environment as similar to his current situation as possible. REX also cannot be placed in a home with small children.

REX needs a home with secure fencing where he can hang out, run around and dig (he will dig). He cannot be exposed to other animals in the yard. This includes potential fence fighting with neighbor’s dogs or the potential for the neighbor’s cat to stray inside. REX’s owner should familiar with the stubbornness and unpredictability one would expect from the combination of breeds. Because of his personality REX is not one to be taken hiking, heading to dog park or hanging at the beach. He needs to be a homebody. 

REX is a fun loving boy who likes to play ball (more accurately called keep away). He would make an excellent companion for a couple who live away from the hustle and bustle and don't get many visitors. His fosters have a VERY SELECT few friends and family that are allowed to socialize with REX. REX is very smart. He knows his room is his home (right by the back door) and goes directly in from outside. He is also crate trained. He’d willingly go in when crated, and a simple "Go Lay Down" gets him to go in. He can be a little mischievous so crating or confining to his own room is recommended if leaving the house. REX has never had an accident in the house.

REX is  micro-chipped, neutered, heart worm negative and on preventative, and up to date on vaccinations. If you have an approved Northern California Border Collie Rescue & Adoptions Adoption Application and wish to enquire about REX, please email us at If you have an approved adoption application with Border Collie Rescue of Northern California let us know and we will request it be forwarded to us for consideration. REX is being fostered near Corning in Tehama County, California.
