Bree (5 yr old Female - experienced BC home)
Bree spayed female 5 years old available for adoption. Experienced Border Collie home, no apartments, and fenced yard required. Bree is extremely intense and passionate. She puts her all into everything she does- even cuddling. She will give you the most affectionate doggie cuddles and kisses you've ever received. Her favorite things to do are to play with her toys, play with us, and playing with other dogs. Like I said she is intense... So she can fight over toys. But she doesn't need toys to play with another dog she will run around and "play fight"! She fought with my first dog twice when she first lived with us and they haven't fought since- it's been years. She loves my two year old and plays ball with him. She loves nature walks/runs and car rides. She loves all people! She acts like a puppy and jumps from furniture to furniture piece... It's just who she is! She's quick to forget manners so you have to remind her not to jump on people but after a few reminders she behaves herself. She really tries hard to please but her natural border collie energetic self comes out and she can just be all over the place and everyone. She's hilarious and entertaining but only if you're up for a serious challenge. She wants to be loved and wants to "work" so she needs to be active every day. She needs to be a happy girl, and if you cannot exercise her mind and body daily then she won't be happy with you. She's a special girl looking for a special home to make her family and love her everyday. She deserves it, she's loving and FUN!!
Emmy (1 yr old - Female)
This gorgeous girl is about 1 year old and a Border Collie/Rough Collie Mix (what a lovely combination). Emmy and her sister were abandoned by their owners and ended up in the shelter, both petrified and shut down. It is unclear wether or not they were mistreated or just not socialized but Emmy was extremely scared of everything. After about 4 days she allowed touch and after a week she even started to initiate it. She's comfortable with her foster family but still shies away from strangers. She has made leaps and bounds since she was rescued and at times even becomes quite fresh. She craves attention and loves nothing more than being close to you. She shows her gratitude by lots of kisses and cuddles. Sometimes she gets pushy and wants to be in your lap. Because of her sensitive nature she doesn't need much correction to stop unwanted behavior.
She is still all puppy and likes to chew on a variety of household items if available. She has also stolen trash on one occasions and hid it in her crate.
She started to enjoy walking and slowly understands how to be a dog. She loves to play with her foster siblings and is good with the family bunny. Every step forward is a huge success for her. Jumping in the car (after weeks of carrying her) was another mile stone. Emmy will have to be adopted to an experienced dog owner who is patient and loving but also understands that sheltering her from what she's scared of, won't help her. For her it's all about making positive experiences in a frightening world. A fenced in yard is a must. Emmy needs more time before she can go to a forever home, but keep checking back for updates on this special girl. Emmy is fostered in Burlington, NC, for more information contact Daniela at Daniela.firstname.lastname@example.org
Gigi (Adoption Pending!!!!)
Where do I start in describing this lovely young lady? How about the basics. Gigi is a 1- year old Border Collie mix with a beautifully unique coat of black on white. She has only the good Border Collie traits; smart, inquisitive, desire to please, playful and loving without the drive. She was very underweight at 32 pounds when she arrived but gained 4 pounds the first week and has started to really look forward to her meals. Gigi can go from being a whirling dervish to calm companion in the blink of an eye. She plays well with all members of the pack, is mildly curious of the cats, is learning how to retrieve tennis balls, learned to walk on leash in two sessions and has fantastic recall. Gigi is heartworm negative, UTD on vaccinations, house trained and micro-chipped. She is not happy in her kennel so, since she has no destructive tendencies, we don't force her to use one. Gigi will be spayed and ready to go to her forever home after she gains a few more pounds. We would prefer that her forever home have a large fenced yard because she does like to run and play. Gigi is being fostered near Burlington, NC.
Jasper (6 to 7 yo - male)
Hello, my name is Jasper! I have been told that I am a very handsome border collie mix, who estimated to be 6-7 years old. I am a devoted & loving companion, who is quite the charmer, and steals the hearts of everyone I meet. I am not a running partner, fly ball dog, or a high energy dog. I do play, but I am not overly active. I know a few commands, such as "sit", "down", and "shake". I do not jump up on people or furniture, and I am not an escape artist. I have not shown any signs of being fearful of noises, such as fireworks or thunder. I am house trained, crate trained, walk well on a leash, and love going for car rides. I am also fully vetted. My foster parents think that there are a couple of things that I need for my forever home. I need a home without any steep staircases (a few is fine), a physical fence for my safety, and a home with some carpet or area rugs (for when I play inside). I do enjoy resting in my crate, and I need to be leash walked (as I get into my own world of investigation & for my safety). I need an experienced adopter who will be devoted to my eye care needs, as I have a dry eye condition. My eye condition does require eye drops 2x's a day, which are very easy to apply. The cost of my eye drops are around $65.00 a month. The vet says that I will maintain the vision that I currently have (which is 90%), as long as I continue the medications that are currently prescribed for me. I currently live with other dogs, and I am fine with all of them. I do enjoy playing/chasing with my 2 smaller foster siblings the best. I would probably enjoy the company of another laid back companion, who is the same size or smaller than me, but would also be fine to be an only dog.
If you think that you could be that special someone with my forever home, contact my foster family so we can meet! I have a lot of love, hugs, and kisses to give. I am currently being fostered in Greenville, SC area.
Sugar (12 yo female)
Meet Sugar she is an older 12 year old Australian Shepard. She will make a great companion as she is laid back although loves short walks. You can tell she was well loved by her previous owner who unfortunately lost her home and couldn't take care of Sugar anymore. Although she is a very happy girl who will greet you with excited barks once she sees its you. Sugar obviously had a doggie door in her old home since she knew how to use it without being shown. While she could stand to lose a little weight she has been chasing her foster dog family around the yard so should start slimming down. Her nickname is princess since she lays down to eat and likes to have her sweet potato treats broken up into small pieces. Sugar is looking for a home where she is either the only dog or the only female dog. She doesn't need that much activity but does still like to room around a bit. She likes to lay right next to you and have you love on her. Don't let her age stop you from getting this lovable girl.
It might be best for Sugar to go to a home with male dogs and with a fence - no invisible fencing and no appartments
Toby (1 yo male)
This boy is a charmer and will win your heart in no time. Toby is energetic and is looking for a new owner that can keep up with him. With true Border Collie intelligence he will learn commands on the second repetition. Daily walks are a must for Toby as he will only flourish in a home that makes him part of its active lifestyle. In return you will get a loyal companion, one in a million. Toby bonds strongly with "his" person and will make you feel like the best thing ever. He is 1 year old and would benefit from and enjoy some training. To keep him from pulling on the leash we are walking him on a thunder leash which works beautifully for Toby. If his new family already has a dog Toby will need to be fed separately since he's protective over his food. Toby loves dogs of all breeds and sizes, children and is just an overall friendly and wonderful, playful guy. Toby is fostered in Burlington, NC
Zach (male -- BC experienced home only!)
Hi my name is Zach. I am a Border Collie! Yea those kind of crazy dogs that like to run play ball, Frisbee, herd, run, chase things, and jump and did I say run. Yea I live for playing. My foster mom says I am a handsome boy, and someone will be lucky to get me for dog. She also said I needed some manners and training whatever that is. We do something where she will give me a treat if I do what she says, like sit or down. I really do like playing those games…I love treats.
My previous owners took me to this place with a bunch of barking dogs. I didn't like that place. They didn't want me anymore they said because I killed some of their chickens. I just wanted to play and they were loud and looked like a lot fun…. Let's just say I didn't mean for any to get hurt. The cats don't like me either cause, I want to run and play. So my foster mom says I need to go to a home with no chickens or cats.
I would love to play some kind of sport. I am fast and very agile!!! I jumped over the couch the other night. It was fun!!! Foster mom said I would do well in agility! Did I tell you how fast I am?
Note from Foster Mom: Zach is a sweet boy. He is very energetic and will need some activity to expend all that energy. He will make someone a great performance dog. He is definitely not a couch potato, but settles well when he has been exercised. He is not for the beginner BC owner. He will need obedience training with a consistent firm and patient handler. He has done well with housetraining, but I do crate him with I am gone and at night. He is going to make an awesome dog with training and love. No Apartments - No Invisible fencine - Border Collie Experienced home only.
