Yakovlev on the left and Lisashenka on the right.
They are brother and sister and they are beautiful. Beautiful Border Collies. Their owner wanted rid of them. They wouldn't hunt. They were useless and one of them was deaf. We don't know about that, we'll do some test to find out.
The boy, Yakovlev, is very timid and very attached to his sister, Lisashenka. She's the boss and is very clever and smart and is able to reassure her brother and keep him calm. The dogs were very skinny but are getting better and are beginning to feel at home. They are good with the other dogs and seem to realise that they are safe. Being Border Collies they are very intelligent.
We saved them in the nick of time as their owner would have killed them. They are pretty dogs, as you can see, and have good, sweet characters. Yakovlev is still scared but that will easily change when he has an owner who loves and undersands the breed.
We'd love them to be rehomed together, but will be happy to have them find forever homes whether together or separately. You can read more about them on the website and on Fabienne's Diary.
