Sonia Kutz currently has 26 dogs in her care – 5 puppies and one honorary Border Collie. Ashley’s fur was so out-of-control and badly matted that her rescuer thought she was a Border Collie when she brought her to Sonia. Sonia took her in and is currently nursing her back to health. Ashley has a lot of medical issues and the bills are mounting.

An animal rescuer brought this sweet dog to East Tennessee Border Collie Rescue but when the pup was groomed, it was clear this was not a Border Collie. ETBCR took her in and they're nursing Ashley back to health. Fetching Apparel is raising money for ETBCR this month. Please shop now at Fetching-Apparel.com!Fetching-Apparel.com

East Tennessee Border Collie Rescue was started in 1995. A caring and loving woman named Suzanne West founded the group.

“She is one of the most remarkable women I’ve ever met,” said Sonia. Suzanne still works with the rescue but has now taken a less active role. Animal rescue is all consuming – mentally, physically and time-wise.

Sonia got involved with ETBCR after falling in love with the breed. PLEASE WATCH THIS VIDEO!!


“Everybody has something that speaks to the heart and they just speak to my heart,” she said. “They have a high rate of surrender. They’re very misunderstood.”

Border Collies are working dogs; they’re herding dogs. They’re known for their smarts. They can’t be allowed to get bored or they may get up to mischief! Not everyone can handle a Border Collie. That’s why so many end up back in shelters.

If you want to know if a Border Collie is right for you, reach out to ETBCR. Sonia currently has Border Collie puppies up for adoption and she’s carefully monitoring their personalities so she ensures each one goes to the most suitable home.

  1. My heart swells every time I see Sonia’s posts at ETBCR. Her love and dedication to advocating for this amazing breed is truly a beautiful thing to witness. Thank you Fetching Apparel for every thing you do, to help those who are helping those who can’t help themselves ; )
    I’m a fan of your company and will be spreading the word of your good deeds! blessings to all♡

    • Thank you, thank you, thank you! Spreading the word is the toughest part of our mission so we truly appreciate the help. We are in awe of everything Sonia does, along with so many others in the rescue community. They’re a rare breed indeed and we are proud to get behind such dedicated groups like ETBCR. We visited Sonia at her home and got to meet all her dogs and witness all the work she puts in. Such a special lady. 💕

  2. Suzanne West built a solid foundation for East Tennessee Border Collie Rescue, one of integrity dedication, and compassion. Now in the capable hands of Sonia Kuzt, we see the organization operating on those same strengths and values. Her marketing skills are keep the turnover going and placing dog into excellent and deserving forever homes. People have said it was easier to adopt a baby than it was a Border Collie from ETBCR. So be it. I has been an honor to be a foster for nearly 15 years.

  3. Love the story about Sonia and her border collies. I met Sonia when she trained my Yorkie for a therapy dog–a truly wonderful, caring person. Thanks for sharing this information.
