Callie is about 15 weeks old. She is a very sweet little pup. She has a great personality and likes meeting new people. She loves children and likes to greet all the kids on our walks. She is very social and loves other dogs. She can play rough so small dogs may not like her too much. She does great meeting people and has no reservations about approaching strangers.
Callie still has her puppy teeth and will need lots of things to chew or she may focus that need on inappropriate items. Re-direction has worked out pretty well.
She is doing well with house breaking and doesn't love her crate but she settles down in it after a minute and will take a nap. She does sleep in her crate and she goes all night without making a peep. She has learned sit and does it very well. She is starting to learn basic commands but has a hard time listening when she is too excited. Nothing you wouldn't expect from a puppy.
Callie is a healthy little pup who is ready for adventure. She will make a great family pet, she is 30 lbs at 12 to 16 weeks so she will have some growing to do. She can be mouthy, as all puppies are, so she would have to be supervised around children until she grows out of her puppy nibbling.
Overall, Callie is a great little girl, she is funny, loves toys and likes to play ball. She is full of life and energy but after some play and a nice walk she settles down and will doze off in the afternoons. She is lovely and ready for a for-ever home.
Meet Reilly, a 9-week-old split face border collie puppy. He was found as a stray, so nothing is known about his past. Reilly has a fantastic temperament and absolutely adores people and other dogs. When he is spoken to, he shakes his tail so vigorously that his whole body wiggles with excitement. Like most puppies, he plays hard and then sleeps hard. He will be an energetic border collie who will require a good amount of exercise and attention each day. Before he goes to his new home, he will be fully vetted and microchipped.
At the moment, his favorite thing to do is nibble on human extremities, shoes, or wood. He is learning that toys are also fun to chew on, and he loves to roll around on the floor with a tennis ball. He also really enjoys sneak attacking, and then wrestling with his foster brother. He also LOVES to spend time outside. Reilly is very bold and has a strong desire to roam. I have reason to believe that he could easily scale a chain link fence, so he will need to be closely supervision in the yard at his new home.
In his foster home, Reilly is learning some basic obedience, to go to the bathroom outside, to walk on the leash, and to relax in his crate. He does not enjoy being crated at the moment, but will calm down when his foster brother lies down near him and when there is music playing. Due to his razor sharp puppy teeth, tendency to be extremely mouthy, and his love to perform sneak attacks, Reilly will not be adopted to a home with young children (visiting grandchildren, etc. would be okay). I would love for him to have a canine brother or sister in his new home to help him stay out of trouble and teach him some good manners. He is a submissive puppy, and I believe he would get along well with a more dominant sibling.
If you are interested in adopting Reilly, please fill out an application. After filling out an application, feel free to contact his foster mom if you have any questions. Please keep in mind that Reilly will not be adopted on a first come, first served basis, but rather to the family that is the best match for him.If you are interested in giving Reilly a loving new home, feel free to fill out an application or contact his foster family for further information.
Hi my name is AJ! My name comes from the family who took care of me & kept me safe (Alison & Jeff) until I could become a PRBCR dog. I am a male border collie mix. I am estimated to be between 1-2 years old and weigh right at 40 lbs. I am heartworm negative and have recently been neutered. I am a little shy at first but warm up quickly. The family that took care of me had 2 boys, a dog and 3 cats, they say that I got along with all of them. My foster mom also has dogs and cats, so she will be able to confirm that. I will sleep in my crate at night, let you know when I need to go out (with a bark), and I do not pull when being walked on a leash. My foster parents think that I am really sweet! I am being fostered in the Greenville, SC area.
Sweet Belle is a 7 year old purebred Border Collie who has lots of love to give!!
Belle has WONDERFUL house-manners, loves to play with the ball & her toys. Her foster mom says Belle loves to go over to the toy basket and search for just the right toy- then lay in the floor and play with it or bring it to her to toss around in the house.
Belle is very obedient and knows lots of manners & commands. She is crate trained but does not need one in the house. In her former home, Belle used a doggy-door but she is also good at holding it all day while her humans are at work if she has to. Belle is very good with children, loves to be loved and petted which she gives lots of BC kisses for.
Belle's previous foster mom took her to herding class and Belle did REALLY well but like all Border Collies she does like to be "in charge" & can be a little bossy at times. But like all good Border Collies, Belle wants to please her human and listens well when reminded to not be so bossy; however, because Belle has a strong herding drive, she cannot go to a house with cats or small dogs.
Belle loves to play with the tennis ball, soccer ball & frisbee in the back yard but will glady stop when you ask her to.
Belle was over 70 lbs when she came into rescue and on a lot of medications (which were all related to her being morbidly obese). At this point, Belle has lost over 15 lbs and she is working hard to loose the remaining 15 lbs to be to her ideal weight (35-40 lbs) and no longer needs ALL of those medications!!! Belle does have Hypothyroidism (which was undiagnosed & led to her weight problems); Her Thyroid medication is very inexpensive, around $20-$30 a month. She will need to remain on Thyroid medication for the rest of her life and closely monitor her food & weight- but who doesn't these days?
Belle is not one of those working- obessed Border Collies who needs a job, every day, all day. She would enjoy taking a walk around the block, the beach ,or maybe the mountains. Belle also enjoys going on a car-ride, or hanging in the backyard while her humans work in the yard or sit on their back deck & have a glass of wine.
Belle has a lot of love to give to her new "furever" family and says that 'even though I just turned 7 (my birthday is 3/27/06), I am only at the half-way point in my life; who wants a young inexperienced pup who needs a lot of training and work when I am already "broken-in" like your favorite pair of jeans!!'

Meet Buddy! He is a sweet, lovable little guy. He is 8 yrs old and gets along well with other dogs. I have two foster dogs right now and they run around the back and have a good time. He is crate trained, house trained and likes his toys. Buddy walks well on a leash and he comes when he is called. He is always ready to go for a walk or a ride. He rides well. He has been trained not to put his feet up on people, but you can tell he sure wants to (that is how we show love says Buddy). Buddy may prefer a home without small children or cats. He will make someone a devoted pet.
If you are interested in adopting Buddy, please contact Don
Chaco --- Adopted!!!!
Meet Chaco! He's a chocolate and white border collie. . He has been neutered, micro chipped and is up to date on all his immunizations and heart worm medication. He is a sweet dog with a wonderful disposition and gets along well with other dogs but has not been tested on cats or kids. Chaco is housetrained and will dance around by the door when he needs to go out to potty. Chaco is very affectionate and loves to climb into your lap to give hugs and kisses. He seems to have a lot of ball drive and will bring the ball back to you. He is also extremely intelligent and I feel he’d do great with agility or fly ball. Chaco is being fostered in Chesnee, SC. If you are interested in adopting this sweet boy, please contact his foster mom at email@example.com.

Chloe is a sweet energetic girl. She is starved for love and attention. She is working on basic obedience, she walks well on a leash but needs a little more improvement. She is house trained. She gets along well with the other dogs and really wants to play with them but they are both laid back and do not play much. She is more interested in playing with other dogs than toys at this time. She weighs about 41 pounds and is about 3 yrs old.
> Declan (an Irish name meaning "full of goodness") is a purebred smoothcoat male, approximately 2 yr old. This happy boy has never met a stranger, adoring men and women, young and old alike, coming to sit politely at the new person's feet to be petted. Declan apparently had a rough past, with an unset broken front leg and dislocated back toe that have healed with small deformities that cause him no trouble. Declan is almost certainly from strong working lines. Although he would like to work all day, due to his old injuries, he should not run continuously or work stock more than an hour at a time. 1-2 mile walks or short herding sessions are just fine! Declan has also been introduced to sheep, where he shows a LOT of interest, and could easily be trained to assist on a small farm. It appears Declan was also kenneled most of his former life, so he has had to learn many skills that most loved doggies take for granted, like living inside, playing with toys, interacting with other dogs, and most important, that love and food will ALWAYS be available. He is extremely submissive to other dogs, which can make him a target in pack dynamics, so a family with only one other dog would probably be best for him. Declan is being fostered with cats, but he is constantly trying to herd them, so a home without cats would be best. If you would like to be the person who will always love and feed Declan, please contact his foster mom and fill out an application.

Hurley has completed his heart-worm treatment and is good as new. Hurley is a Border Collie mix with a very heavy mostly black coat with white trimmings and a doughnut tail, cute as a button. Hurley-Bear is a very easy dog with none of the BC idiosyncrasies (except maybe stubbornness). He is built stocky and strong weighing in at 34 pounds while standing 18 inches at the shoulder, neutered, I.D. chipped and UTD on shots. His age is estimated between 2 to 4 years. He is fully house and crate trained, very calm and quiet when inside, loves to go for rides, and plays well with our other dogs of all sizes. He is not much at chasing balls but starting to develop an interest. Hurley is what we call a wanderer as he has a territory he patrols larger than we prefer. He always comes back in his own good time but we feel that he should live in a fenced yard for safety reasons. Hurley is a smart boy who learns routines fast and prefers a regimented schedule. His best trick is standing upright like a big old cuddly Teddy Bear. He is a talkative dog once he feels comfortable with his surroundings. He could go either way with cats so we are recommending a cat-free environment. A handsome,
Jet was dumped in a kill facility in SC a few days before Christmas. When she first came to me she had terrible fear and anxiety and no social skills with other dogs but she is really starting to understand the good in life. 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, probably purebred, 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.
Lucy is looking for her forever home. She is a spayed Border Collie mix estimated to be about 3 years old. Her foster Dad says that she is sweet, loveable, good with other children, cats, and other dogs. She is a special girl looking for that special some one to give her a loving home. Lucy is being fostered in the Greenville SC area.

Riff --- Adoption Pending!!!!!
Hi I'm new to PRBCR and they call me Riff. I'm a one year old male HW neg. I absolutely love all people & I am great with children (especially those that give me some good belly rubs). I know some basic commands and,I'm house trained. I do good on my walks. While I like other dogs, I need to be fed alone for now. This could be because I am 35 lbs and extremely under weight.I take food very gently from my humans. I can escaped my create but, I didn't mess any thing up. I don't chew anything but my toys. I wasn't always taken very good care of in my previous life but with the help of some caring people, I've got it pretty good now. I've got a warm bed out of the elements and enough food to keep my belly full. The people who are helping me out right now tell me that although I'm a handsome fella and very loving I can't stay here forever so I'm looking for a forever home. I still need to go visit the doctor get neutered Monday 3-3-14- if all of that goes well I'll be ready to move to a permanent home soon.

Sadie --- Adoption Pending!!!
Sadie is a sweet pure bred border collie female. She was born blind but don't tell her she has a disability. She mapped out the yard and house in no time. She gets along with other dogs. I don't know about cats as I don't have any, but I feel sure she will be fine. A fenced yard is a MUST. She likes the outside, but loves to come inside with her humans. She loves to cuddle. Sadie is an active dog and not a couch potato. She will need exercise. It is thought that she can see some shadows. She doesn't run into things so she must see some. She needs a home that will help her reach her potential and a family who will devote time to her training. She is a great dog and is looking for a very special family who will give her the love she deserves.

Skipper is a healthy, sweet and playful adult dog who is in search of a loving, permanent home. He is a Border Collie mix, neutered and is 6 years old weighing 45 pounds and is current on all his shots. He prefers an active family who will take him on walks and has a large fenced-in yard to play in when he is outside alone. He is a good car rider and is house trained and will automatically sit for his owner when he sees a leash coming. He is friendly with other dogs and children and will favor anyone who shows him loving attention. He is not a fan of cats so his new home may be better off without them. He enjoys being both inside and outside with his family and has a microchip in case he ventures too far from home. Skipper is being fostered in High Point/Thomasville, NC area.
