Zephan & Kieran (Bonded Pair - must adopt together)

Zephan and his brother Kieran are litter mates, 8 years old, and always been together. Zephan and Kieran have adapted well to indoor living, and sleep within a... few feet of each other. We really want to keep them together, so it’s very important that whichever lucky person decided to adopt Zephan gets the double pleasure of adopting his big brother Kieran too. They are a matched set, very attached to each other, and I think they’d be lost without each other. They have gotten along very well with my own dog, Ellie, a 6-year old Border collie mix. Zephan loves to be brushed, housebroken, does well in the house, and enjoys chew toys. He is incredibly sweet, very loving, and adventurous, travels in a car very well, loads well, and is a calm traveler. He is excellent on long car trips, and curls up to enjoy the ride. He will need plenty of chew toys around. . I really think he will be happiest if he can stay with his brother.

Because they were outside dogs for so long, they need a lot of space to explore, so a good size back yard, and with a big fence is a necessity-just don’t leave them out too long, or they will dig their way to more exciting things to explore. Kieran and Zephan love to take walks, and recommend using a harness. They did not do well with my personal cat, and not sure if they would do well in a home with cats.

Please consider giving these wonderful boys a forever home. They have so much love to give. Please complete an application if you are interested in adopting Kieran and Zephan.

beau

Beau (male)

This guy came to us after being found wandering the streets in a shadier part of town. Initially he was shut down, coming out of a county animal control shelter. But with some understanding, good food, and plain old love he has blossomed. He reminds us of our female border collie name Belle. What else could we name him but Beau.

Beau is a tall fella about 24 inches at his shoulders. He gets along great with other dogs, is neutered, has tested heart work negative and has been completely vetted. He is a classic black white. He needs an active family and a fenced yard. Long walks, hikes, or runs are just what this guy needs or maybe a family interested in agility or herding.

If you are interested in this southern gentleman please feel free to contact his foster family. .

Conway (3 yr old _ male)

Hello friends! I am Conway, a 3-yr old tri Border Collie. My foster parents adore me – they say I’m the absolute best and I’d like to tell you a little bit about me to see if you would love me as much as they do!

Firstly, I’m super duper smart. Most of us Border Collies are, but I’m especially good at being intuitive with what my foster parents want me to do. I read their body language a lot and I’m always checking in with them to see what they might ask me about. I REALLLLLY want to make them happy, so I learn things very quickly and always do what they ask on the first try. As far as commands go, I know sit, down, come, go to mat, “where’s your Frisbee” (my favorite!), out, wait, leave it and bunch of other ones!

Secondly, I’m very athletic! My favorite sport is Frisbee – I absolutely love catching that thing in mid-air. Now, my foster mom is not the best at consistently throwing it (her words, not mine!), but I will always get it, no matter where she throws it and bring it back to her. She also takes me for runs, which I love. She says I’m one of the best running dogs she’s had because I don’t get distracted by anything and my focus is on her and running!

Thirdly, I’m awesome with people and dogs. I love playing “chase” with my foster siblings. My favorite thing to do is all out zoomies around the yard with one or more of them chasing me – it’s the best! I’m very very fast and they usually can’t catch me, so sometimes I slow down or stop so they can!

Finally, I get very attached to my human(s). I LOVE being hugged and I really enjoy sitting on their laps and generally being close to them.

I would love a home with a good Frisbee thrower, or runner, and a fenced in yard. I get along with other dogs, but I’d also be fine with just a human as long as they spent a lot of time with me! I don’t like kids very much, so I would prefer not to go to a home with younger children. Mostly, I just want someone to hang out with forever!

joleen

Joleen (Applications Closed)

We let Jolene write her last biography and she got lots of inquiries and visits but none were the perfect forever home for her; close, but no cigar. Now we will try our hand at describing our friend and companion, Miss Jolene. Jolene is a two-year old female blue-Merle full blooded Border Collie with all the bells and whistles. She has the biggest blue eyes, is smart, completely house trained, spayed, heartworm negative, micro-chipped, UTD on all vaccines, walks well on lead, rides well in car, swims like a fish and cuddles like a Teddy Bear. She is a bit underweight at 31 pounds but eats well so her high energy level just keeps the weight off. Jolene plays well with inside or outside toys, great with Frisbee, quick as a whip and plays and plays and plays. We go for long walks in the woods and she loves to run free but never out of sight and her recall is excellent. Jolene is just a lot of fun to be with

Jolene tolerates our other dogs but doesn't really want to play with them. Many potential homes had to pass on Jolene because there just was no dynamics with the home dog. Jolene will not make a good pet for a pet. She will chase after the dogs when they are fetching a ball and attempt to keep the ball from being returned which at least provides exercise. Jolene is a dog who would rather be with people and sticks like glue once she accepts you as her friend. Jolene is also a dog that requires lots of physical and mental exercise. She is happiest when she is working with her favorite human whether walking, playing or doing tricks. She is currently living with a dog-savvy cat with no problems

Jolene does not like loud sounds or loud humans as the noise seems to offend her sensitive nature. Children under the age of ten are loud, look and sound a lot like sheep, and don't like to be herded so create a problem with Jolene and should be avoided. A fenced yard would be nice for her safety but no invisible fences. Jolene has a little anxiety when she is separated from her human but is not destructive, she just goes to her "safe" spot and waits for your return.

Jolene is a princess so has been spoiled and treated like royalty all her life. That must not change. She will nap on the couch or sleep in the bed when she gets the notion but gets down when she is told or if she feels uncomfortable and retreats to her own bed. She is very respectful of others in bed but what a way to wake up for as you stir she is sitting there looking at you with those gorgeous eyes waiting for the new adventures to come

If you would like to learn more about Jolene please contact us as we love to brag on her. Jolene is being fostered near Burlington, NC

laveau

Laveau (Female)

Laveau is a two year old border collie mix. She is almost all black with a bit of white on her feet and chest. She is a small at only around 30 lbs. She is a shy girl especially with new people and situations, but she loves to be around people once she gets to know them. It will likely take time and patience to earn her friendship, but will be worth it when she comes to you for a belly rub. She is laid back for a border collie and has a medium energy level. She is great around kids and other dogs as well.

tess
 

Tess (female)

Tess, a pure white, beautiful 36 pound Golden Retriever/BC mix. She is used to an adult home, knows basic commands and has great house manners. She will need a home without cats, preferably a home without other dogs, or perhaps a mature male dog. She is good with older children.

Tess is partially deaf and responds to hand signals. She has never been bothered by loud sounds, sleeps through thunderstorms and fireworks, even with perfect hearing. She enjoys time outside, but would need a fenced yard or someone that enjoys walking her on a leash. Tess loves to ride in the car and would make a great travel companion. She is house trained and has the run of the house, sleeps in her own bed, is not a chewer, doesn’t bother things left on the floor, and is a devoted family member with lots of love to give. Tess is a very sweet loving dog looking for her forever home.
