Happy (3 to 4 yo Male)
Happy is a very sweet laid back dog and loves people and is friendly with other dogs and cats. Happy loves the water and has the markings of a Border Collie and the traits of both a Lab and Border Collie. As you can see from the photos Happy is a beautiful dog and is one of easiest dogs we've taken care of and quickly becomes your best friend. He loves hugs, belly rubs and likes being your best buddy. He may be a little shy at first and that is just for the first few minutes and then he quickly warms up to you. Happy is a delight and easy to be with as he causes no trouble and just loves doing things with you and can just lounge around too. He'll likes to ride in the car if you want to take him somewhere with you he'll enjoy the ride and if you like to go a lake, river or if you have a pool Happy will be right at home! He loves toys and playing with you and especially likes chewing on a big doggy bone. When I've had friends over they always say the same thing, "what a nice friendly dog"! He has been neutered and is up to date on all shots, negative on heartworm and up to date on heartworm medicine.
If you are interested in Happy please contact his foster dad

Jet (4 yr female)
Jet is a sweet and active pure bred border collie. She gets along great with my other borders but all she really wants is to be with people. ON you if possible. She's incredibly loving and desperate for approval and she would crawl inside our clothes to be closer to us if she could-a real Velcro Dog. At sometime in her life someone spent lots of time with her before her life took a turn. She is utterly crazy about fetching the ball and loves toys, especially tug toys or things she can "kill". She's active, athletic, and is fantastic off leash. (Better than on leash, frankly) She knows sit, down, come, shake and loves the car, sleeps in a crate at night like a champ. She adores men and is fantastic helping around our farm. We currently have no cats or livestock so she hasn't been tested on them. She is about 4 years old, and when she got here she was a little on the skinny side but has made up her weight deficit and now is about 40 lbs. She will need some continued training to "wait" at feeding time. Because of her past history of abuse she will also need a family who is respectful of her body.
Mae (5yo Female)
Dear Prospective Furever Home,
Hi I'm Mae, I'm about 35 years old (that's about 5 in human years) and I'm very sweet. I'm a cute tri-colored pure bred Border Collie. I have a lot of black ticking on my front legs and face and smart brown accents. I really don't like the camera much, but my foster dad was able to get a few pictures to see how cute I am. I am reserved and quiet when I'm in the house. I come quickly when you say my name and I'm willing to enjoy all of the petting and scratching that you care to share. I like my crate, and I'm house trained. I get along great with my other 4 legged sisters, I like all 2 legs but it takes me a minute to warm up to some of them. I've never met a cat but I think that they would be my friend too. I'm heart worm negative, completely up to date on my vaccinations and I have my own microchip. I need someone that will love me, be patient and is willing to help me blossom. Please feel free to contact my foster dad and we can meet and you can see in person how sweet I am. Love, Mae
Nellie (6 months Female: coming soon!)
Available soon. Nellie is a 6 month old female border collie mix who is full of energy and love.
Poppy (8 - 9 months Male)
Poppy is an 8-9 month old neutered, HW negative, male Border Collie mix (maybe with some spaniel?). He currently weighs about 40 lbs. although he is a bit on the thin side and could stand to gain a few pounds. He is a wonderful, energetic pup who will do well in an active home! He is crate-trained as well as house-trained and rides beautifully in the car. He's very very happy to do pretty much anything. He will often throw toys to himself or simply run in our backyard if no one is playing with him. He seems to have endless playful energy.
When he came from the shelter he had some puppy-mouthing and excitable jumping behaviour but this has calmed down a lot with proper exercise and positive training. He seems exceptionally eager to please his people and has already learned several tricks! He is VERY food motivated and hot dogs are his favourite! He learns very quickly and has already been picking up some of the behaviours our dogs get rewarded for.
Poppy is also exceptionally loving and one of his favourite things to do is give kisses! He loves getting on your lap, being pet and snuggling. If you lay down on the floor he will come over for face kisses and get on top of you to cuddle!
Although his goofy energy is very fun, it can sometimes be overwhelming to other dogs, as he is still very much a puppy and not very good at picking up on other dogs' social cues. Due to this, he would probably do best either as an only dog OR with another dog or dogs who really like to play and are energetic. He will not be the best for homes with senior dogs or very calm dogs.
In terms of cats, he seems to be interested, but not overly so. He has met one of our cats and he seemed more confused than anything else, so he would probably do fine in a home with cats.
Poppy has not been tested with kids yet, but given his energy level and some of his mouthing tendencies (which we are working one) he would probably do best in a home without young children.
Scout (4 yo Female)
Scout is a 35 lb., four year old female who has been through some rough times lately. She has made tremendous improvements since I started taking care of her. At first she was so scared that I couldn't touch her without her cringing. She is a very sweet and energetic girl who loves to be petted and cuddled. She walks well on leash. Scout gets along well with other dogs once she gets to know them. She likes her toys and likes to chew them up. She is spayed, heartworm negative and up to date on all her shots. She's always ready to go for a ride, a walk or most anything.
If you are interested in Scout please contact her foster mom
Yogi --- Coming Soon!!!
Yogi will be available soon - check back for more information.

Border Collies are being turned into shelters and rescue groups daily. The breed's unique desires to work and please their owners are often the very reasons they are relinquished. Please be sure a Border Collie is the right dog for you and your family.
For more available Border Collies, we recommend your looking at www.Petfinder.com. Other rescue groups, shelters and independent rescuers post Border Collies at that location. Also, check our links section for other BC-specific rescue groups.
