Puppies

Mylo (puppy)

Hi I'm Mylo,
I'm the last of 6 puppies that were rescue from a local animal control by some nice people. My brothers and sisters have all found their furever homes, now it is my turn.
I am 10 weeks old today (Monday 9/1/2014) and I'm very healthy. I'm up to date on all of my vet visits. I have had my second round of vaccinations and have been dewormed twice. I'm also micro-chipped.
I'm a fast runner and I love to play. For a puppy I am very smart, I will even come if you call me by my name. I have several border collies that I live with and we all play together without any problem. I really want to find a home of my own where I can be loved and grow up.
If you are interested in me please contact my foster family.
Mylo

cj
 

CJ (Adoption Pending!!!!)

CJ  is about 5-6 months old.  He is reserved at first, but very friendly
and super sweet.  He is good with dogs, cats and people.  He is not a high energy dog, but likes to play and then come in the house for a nap. He will be a great family pet.  All he wants in the world is to snuggle and be by someone's side. He is earning freedom when I am not at home, but he still has some teething to do, so I normally baby gate him to an area where he can't get into much while I am gone.He would do well with a human that is either home a lot or has another dog to keep him company

Charlie --- Coming Soon!!!

Charlie will be available soon. Charlie has heart worms and is going through treatment now so that he will be a happy, healthy dog ready to find his new home very soon.

Though heart worms are very serious and very painful to the dog, when they go through treatment they can live a happy normal life, so don't let it scare you away from this lovely sweet dog. However, the treatment is very expensive and PRBCR needs your help to provide this care

eddie
 

Eddie (1+ yr male)

Eddie is an approximate 1 year+ border collie with a sweet disposition who is still learning how to be a dog. Eddie started the first year of his life in an outside kennel with very little training, human interaction, or affection. He must have had a lot of interaction with other dogs though because he's very well socialized with them and gets along great with all dogs that he meets – exhibiting pack manners and learning his place very quickly when he came into a foster home with three other dogs. He plays well and has never met a dog at the park that he didn't love right away. He's also very smart. He learned to sit by watching our other dogs follow the command. As I started to work with him on learning the command he just looked at our youngest border collie (who had just done it for a treat), looked at the treat in my hand, and then sat down…..and he's done it ever since.

With humans he's still trying to figure it all out. When Eddie came to us in early June we're not sure he had ever had a name or been inside a house before. He was fearful of his foster parents and hid in his crate for weeks. Slowly but surely he's learned that humans are affectionate, and they have all the good treats. He also eventually learned to be house trained and trusts his foster parents enough to wake them up in the mornings by jumping on the bed and licking their ears. He seems to really love these morning wake up calls because he'll lounge in bed allowing snuggles. Just a few months ago he wouldn't even stay in the same room with a human.

In the middle of July Eddie became very sick and spent a week at the emergency vet clinic with internists. He lost a lot of weight, and we weren't sure if he was going to make it. After multiple tests and rounds of antibiotics and fluids, Eddie has bounced back better than ever. He's trying to put weight back on, his appetite is back, and he's back to jogging 12 miles a week with additional walks and play time thrown in. Eddie would do best in a house with other dogs and with someone who is patient and understanding of dogs who are still working through their fearfulness of the world. He's completing training classes and is learning about life, each day being less timid and braver out in the world. And while he might be fearful of something and bark there is no aggression in Eddie. He's the type to bark once then run and hide.

Finally, even though Eddie appears to be a pure bred border collie, he doesn't have the high drive many of them have. He likes to exercise and play, but he doesn't require these or become destructive if we miss a day or two of working out. He just seems so grateful to have a comfortable house and plenty of food that he's content laying at your feet.

ellie
 

Ellie (6 yr old - Female)

Ellie is a beautiful happy girl! She loves outdoor time but settles nicely inside and enjoys snuggle time. She loves going on car rides and meeting new people. Ellie walks well on a leash, very sweet, and will make a perfect companion. She gets along very well with male dogs but would be better in a home with no female dogs or cats. She is estimated to be 6 years old, spayed, heartworm negative, up to date on vaccines, and micro chipped.

Happy
 

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

hudson
 

Hudson (1.5 to 2yo male / Experienced BC Applicants only!)

Hudson is a super intelligent fantastically loving Velcro dog. This dog is simply amazing! He loves to be a lap dog so I will require a 'family' role for him inside the house.

He is extremely sensitive and even a heavy sigh sends him slinking out of the room for days. He learns amazingly fast and responds to soft commands, praise and treats. He will chase/herd anything that moves – that includes cars. So he MUST have a secure fence when not inside with his family. NO electric fences, shock collars, prong collars or punishment based, pack dominance based training.

He plays quietly in the house with his toys and entertains himself very well. A home where someone is home with him a lot or another dog to play would make him happy. He loves to run - so he would love a fenced in yard where he can safely run and play.

Unlike many border collies, Hudson will contently entertain himself and play for hours, then come into the house to lay down and take a nap or get hugs from his family. He would love an active home - maybe weekend herding for fun, agility, treibball, rally-O, basically anything where he can be active with his favorite human.

An ideal home would be a loving family where Hudson can curl up in your lap (he can NOT get close enough to his humans). He would love a large securely fenced area for running & playing, and an active family. He seems to be shy around men, so a man will have to be soft spoken and patient to win Hudson over.

He loves people and just cannot get close enough – so you have to love doggie kisses. He loves to pet you back and show his love by touching you and has the gentlest soft paws you could ever imagine.

I really can't say enough about this dog – he is an ideal border collie and will make an experienced border collie connoisseur an amazing addition to their family.

If you are interested in Hudson please contact his foster mom

jason
   

Jason --- (3 yr Male / experienced border collie home only)

Jason is about 3 years old and is the cutest border collie around. He is house trained, neutered, microchipped and is on heartworm preventative. He is full of energy and loves to run and play with other dogs and also has a lot of love for people. He just wants to please people and in return he'll give a warm, gentle smile and is well mannered.

We will give careful consideration to potential adopters. Jason will do best in a home with people home most of the time and with having another younger, playful dog buddy. He is submissive and plays well with either males or females. He has had some previous anxiety so would not be happy alone, without people or another dog, for long periods of time every day. As long as he has someone with him, he is happy.

He does need a secure yard. He is not a fence jumper but if given the opportunity to run free, he will dash out of your sight and circle back to you a few minutes later. He also likes to chase cars. He's only had the chance of chasing mine and the ATV in the driveway so that is something his new family will have to be mindful of.

As with many other border collies he does have noise sensitivity to thunder and gunshots. He settles quickly though when it's over.

Jason is just waiting for the right home. He knows he has the nicest split face markings and a great temperament and he will make a wonderful companion for his new forever family.

Jet

Jet (Adoption Pending!!!!)

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 (Adoption Pending!!!!)

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

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.

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.

yogi
 

Yogi (4 yr male)

Yogi is a sweet loving 4 yr old bc mix. It took a while for him to get adjusted to my 2 laid back female bc. Probably because he was in the shelter for awhile. I'm not sure about cats. He gets along very well with my 7 yr old grandson. not sure about young children. He has been treated for HW and is a happy healthy boy. Storms and fireworks do not bother him. He rides well in the car and walks good on leash. He's crate trained (with encouragement) and is house trained and needs to be taken out often. He'll make a good guard dog not in an aggressive way but he will let you know when people are outside. He's very vocal. So far he hasn't shown interest in balls but he likes to have chew toys.
