I'm really glad to hear that, I didn't know that about Border Collies. It was sad to think that she might have been abused. She may in fact just be lost and a long way from home and just scared.
There has been more good news since yesterday. Little Momma and the neighbors daughter (she's 10'ish, sorry to say I don't know her exact age) have hit it off famously, and apparently have been for a few days. She positively bounded out to meet the school bus yesterday afternoon. So, I talked to the neighbors and they thought that she belonged here, or across the road at Pos' farm. They closed the gate to their yard, which will keep her off the road and other dogs away, but still gives her nearly an acre of land to run around on. I gave them the rest of the dog food that I had, and they have gone this morning to get some bowls and a clean collar. We took several pictures and made up some "lost dog" posters to put up around the area. I made sure to give them directions to the shelter and told them to take one there (that way, if we find her home, they will still get to see all the other doggies at the shelter that need homes
She is still a little too flighty for a bath, so they put some scented flea and tick powder on her yesterday. Hopefully they may be able to give her a bath this weekend without freaking her out too bad.
This is the best picture I could get of her. She is so happy to be around people with food and clean water that she is positively squirmy
By the way, Little Momma isn't a name, it's more like a title till we find out if she has a family or not.
