Harry was adopted about 5 yrs ago with his brother, as puppies from the no kill shelter that I am associated with here.. TLC HUMANE SOCIETY , and they lived together with my single neighbor for these last years....Now, she has no time for them and with not a lot of training they had become a problem for her. She agreed to release them back to TLC a couple weeks ago and we took them over there to do an assessment for them to see how they did with other dogs...... Edward did great but Harry did not like the 11 yr old Husky that they brought out to meet him so they said they would take Edward back at the shelter but didn't feel they could take Harry.... my neighbor said fine so Harry went back into his pen , now without his constant companion, his brother Edward. She has asked me and my friend, who has pet sat for her for 5 yrs to help her rehome Harry. I am attaching photos of this beautiful wonderful great people dog who is a mix of Border Collie and ??... he is about 50+ lbs, so bigger than a normal BC. He does not like some dogs, though he loved his brother. He killed a cat. It was my neighbors cat who lived inside and her dogs also were left alone inside with her ..... those dogs had NO toys, NO chews , NO nothing to keep them occupied . Just saying. She knew it was Harry and not Edward that did the deed.... I'm not sure how. He does seem to have that prey drive that when you are on walks with him he is looking for critters to chase. He would chase cars if off leash. He is a BC..... Yes he has issues... but.... he has had no training other than sit , stay etc... he is good at those commands. He is a WONDERFUL people dog, very loyal, loving and affectionate...... we love this dog, my friend and I who know him and have taken care of him here and there over the years......He is a dog that needs help finding another home... where he could be an only dog... he is housebroken, walks great on leash, never had toys to play with . Thank you for listening. Please contact Marti at


Freya is a feisty little 15 week old puppy looking for her very own family to love! No one is quite sure what she is a mix of, but she sure is full of spunk, cuddles, and sass - and isn't that all you need?! She loves her canine and feline foster siblings, but loves her human foster mommy the most. She curls up under the covers every night to keep her foster mom nice and warm. Freya's favorite thing to do is run laps around the house with her toys or fosters siblings, then take a nice long nap on her back while she gets a belly rub. Freya is doing really well on potty training, as long as she's taken outside regularly. She is UTD on vaccines, but will need to be spayed when she's 6 months old. She currently weighs 16 1/2 lbs. Freya has completely won the hearts of her foster family with her sweet personality, spunk, and loyalty. Her adoption fee is $150. Please email if interested in adopting Freya.


Beck is 4 years old, black and white short hair, weighs 48 lbs, and an active pet. He is a very loved and lovable border collie. He learns fast and responds consistently to several commands. He loves HIS people. Sometimes a bit too much and gets protective. In his home he is very slow to accept new people but once you are part of Beck’s pack and become one of HIS people he loves you unconditionally and never forgets you. He is very anxious around new people so the introduction process includes a soft muzzle for everyone’s peace of mind. He usually warms up with time but it can take a few hours. He enjoys the children in his life but does get upset when they cry – he will go to the parents and whine to let them know they need to attend to their child! Beck loves to run and play in his large yard – chasing frisbee or tennis balls. But, he also likes to relax around the house. He does well in the car and enjoys Doggie Day care playing with his friends. He loves other dogs and is very gentle and protective of smaller dogs. Unfortunately, we are caring for a family member with advanced Alzheimer’s which requires in-home care. It is growing more difficult to manage Beck during these times. We feel it irresponsible to continue to put Beck in a situation that causes extreme anxiety (not to mention the anxiety of the health care worker!) We feel Beck would do great with a consistent environment, one with other dogs and lots of space to run and explore. And someone to love him as much as we do! Beck is located in Greensboro, NC. For more information please contact Keith Learman at or 336-402-7299.

My name is Rusty. I am an Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix and I am seven years old. I am a very loyal companion and I love to be around my family members. I like my crate and my family calls me “crate trained”. I also like car rides, running and jogging, and playing fetch with a tennis ball. I have been neutered and have not had any major medical issues or surgeries. I weigh 72 pounds and I do not shed very much at all. I especially love belly rubs. My family loves me so much, but they can’t keep me any more because they have way too many houseguest (8-10 visitors a month). I am looking for a new home. I would be best suited in a home with children over 12 years of age or no children. I feel most comfortable in a home that is not too busy with company but with an active family that will play ball with me in the yard or take me for walks. I do not have to have a fence because I usually stay close to my people. If you are interested in meeting me, contact Anna at 704-661-8266.

Rio is an active boy who would do well in a very active household or could probably hold his own in any dog sport. He is smart, highly trainable, and eager to please and play. Rio currently lives with 5 other dogs, both male and female, and does well. He has good recall and is crate trained (he sleeps in his crate every night). He is currently enjoying play with “his” basketball but exploring tennis balls (fetch) and frisbee. He has been a joy to his foster family. Rio is a part of the ARCBCR rescue organization. Please contact them at and fill out an application to adopt. You can also contact the foster directly
