New Hope Cattle Dog Rescue
"Rescues" are generally a pain in the ass, and that one looks no different. Application, phone interview, home inspection, contracts. Go to the humane society and be done with it.
I know this is an old post but we are currently working with New Hope to adopt our second cattle dog mix. The application and home inspection were no big deal at all. We got to meet the dog and spend time with him and if he doesn't work out for us then we can give him back to his foster home and work with them to find a better fit for us. New Hope so far has been really nice to work with and I don't see any issue with them.
All that being said our first dog came from the Boulder Humane Society and we love her to death. She's an amazing dog but she had an unusual amount of information for a dog at a shelter (though still not much) that led us to believe she would work out. The flip side of adopting from them was that they didn't ask much of anything and the adoption process was very quick. It was in my opinion a bit too easy to walk out with a dog.
Maya is a 2 year old cattle dog / border collie mix (at least we think) and hasn't been on a 14er or 13er yet but she will be soon. We're still in the process of training her and she's done great on hikes so far.
