Meet one of our SCARS dogs, Holly. Holly came to us in March 2007, after a very unsettled life. She was found with her puppies in Northern Alberta after being dumped in the bush. The girls at PARS rescued her at just over a year old. Someone adopted Holly from High Prairie and moved her to Edmonton. The adoption didn't work for some reason and Holly was surrendered to SCARS. We had been checking the website for a border collie cross, and Holly (then Sookie) caught our eye. When we brought her home, I didn't know what to expect. I certainly didn't expect to find her sitting in the middle of the kitchen table in the middle of the night, howling! That only happened the first night and I have no idea what got into her. She is still a little shy with men unless they ignore her. The harder a guy tries to make friends, the more suspicious Holly becomes. For some strange reason, Holly bonded with my husband right from the start, she never made strange and prefers his company to mine. That was a relief after her history of shyness. Holly is a typical border collie, energetic and sensitive. A raised voice leaves her cringing. So no raised voices! We love her to bits and are glad to have been able to give her a good home.
