Border Collie

Handler: Louie Hellard

 

Sky is a little border collie that was renamed in honor of ‘Pilots n Paws’, the organization that transported her from a high-kill shelter in Louisiana to the Sunshine State.

 

After surviving two rambunctious boys & puppy sitting for my best friends’ dog, I knew I had room in my home & in my heart for another dog. While searching the internet I came across Sky & a couple months later I contacted her rescue group & her foster mom. After exchanging emails for a couple of weeks I decided to take the boys and meet Sky.

 

4 hours later we arrived at the dog park on the east coast & the boys were ready to run. Sky & her foster mom arrived a few minutes later & Sky immediately hid under a picnic bench.

 

After spending 7 months in foster care, she was more than a little uncertain why her foster mom had brought her to this strange place & why she was being loaded in a strange car, with strange dogs. When we got home the boys began to frolic & play while Sky sat on the sidelines, just watching. But it wasn’t long before she got tired of just sitting there & began to join in.

 

Then Jett showed her the toy basket. When he pulled the basket over & the toys spilled out, her eyes lit up. The three of them went through & played with each toy until they got to the tennis balls & Sky was in heaven.

 

I knew then that she would be joining her brothers in the flyball lanes.
