Bo (Adoption Pending!!!!)
5 year old BC/Aussie Mix - docked tail – Neutered - UTD on vaccines and HW-
Hi my name is Bo but my foster mom calls me "Wiggle-Butt". I guess that is because I am so happy and can't stop wiggling. I don't have a long tail to swish around. That thing might be a weapon if I had one.
I have several other foster brothers and we play all day long. I like to play with the ball and mostly just run and jump and wrestle with my foster brothers River and Sam.
I do like to jump so small kids would need to be comfortable with active dogs. I would never knock a kid down on purpose, but I just love life and I jump and play and might knock a small kid down by accident.
I do know commands like sit, stay, down, and come. My foster mom says I am very smart and that I am a sweet boy. She says I have a beautiful fur coat. I have seen cats before, but I have never played with them so I don't know if they would like me or not. If you are looking for an active friend that likes to be with his person(s), then I am your guy.
If you are interested in Bo please contact his foster dad
My name is Cameron but my nicknames are sassy pants or chunky monkey. I love Milk-Bones and any other treats. After I get to know you I have just the biggest heart. I love to be petted - a real people dog. I love you no matter what. I may be smaller but I'm a fiesty girlie and will take up for myself with the other dogs. I love to play with them though.
If you are interested in adopting Cameron:
Cash (Prev. Eddie; 1 to 2 yr old male))
Eddie/Cash has had a rough start and we are hoping he will find the perfect spot for him. He spent the first year of his life in an outdoor pen with little human socialization. What little he had wasn't nice. He has been in foster care for 6 months and is learning that humans and the indoors can be good. Here is what he will need to continue to grow and trust.
He needs a quiet home with few visitors and a large fenced yard to run and play. Another friendly dog mate is a must as he loves dogs. He is also good with cats. Right now, he doesn't really want to leave the house and yard, so he is not the dog if you are looking to travel and go lots of places with your dog. I am hopeful one day he might enjoy these things, but no one should take him with those expectations.
He has fear issues and some health issues. His adopter would need to be prepared for this. He cannot handle any sort of correction. Even a loud voice sets his progress back. He will need someone either that knows about positive force free training or someone willing to make the commitment to learn.
Eddie/Cash does love to get on the bed in the morning and before going to sleep. He loves to cuddle and doesn't want you to stop petting him. He loves to play with my other dog and run with him in the back yard. He is a sweet dog and when he makes progress it just sends you over the moon.
I know I am looking for a needle in a haystack, but the right spot for him is out there.

Cocoa (13 weeks female (03-0-15))
Hi, my name is Cocoa! I'm a 13-week-old, mixed-breed female. (My mom was mixed but mostly tricolor Border collie.) I am very easy-going, friendly, happy, social and confident. All the neighbors who've met me immediately fell in love, because my personality is so cute and winsome. I don't have much herding/working instinct, or the high-octane energy that BC's are known for—so I would be perfect for a family who just wants a good companion or family pet, or a second dog to play with your current dog. My favorite things to do are: Chase my brother — a 5-month-old Aussie — around the yard, get my brother to chase me or wrestle, learn new tricks (I know "sit" and "come"), chew on my toys, and cuddle with my owner. I'm well-behaved in the house and never bark at people who come to the door or in the yard. I'm still a puppy so I'm still working on my house-training. I wouldn't be good in a family with small children, as I'm still learning that humans, for some reason, don't think my jumping and chewing/biting on their hands is a fun way to play. I live in Greensboro, NC.
Cisco (1-2 yr old male)
Cisco is a very sweet 1-2 year old boy. He is great with other dogs and very laid back. He will be a Velcro dog – likes his people and wants to be with them. He loves riding in the car and being pampered. . He loves bathes, brushing, and even the blow dryer. He will need brushed at least on a weekly basis.
If you are interested in Cisco please contact his foster dad

Border Collie Boxer Pups
Hi – My name is Cooper (I'm the brown and white one) and the black and white one listed below is my brother Ollie (Yes he is the one that looks like a Border Collie).

Hi – My name is Oliver (I'm the black and white one) and the brown and white one listed above is my brother Cooper (yes he is the one that looks like the boxer daddy).

Now all we need is a loving furever home. Please contact our foster family because as cute as we are we won't be here for long.
Jasper (3-5 yr old, male)
Hi my name is Jasper! I am estimated to be between 3-5 years old! I am housetrained, crate-trained, and walk really well on a leash. I have been neutered and I am up to date on my vaccinations. I currently live with 5 other dogs, and do quite well with all of them. They are all ages, breeds, sizes, males and females. I do have an eye condition called Pannus, along with a dry eye condition. I will always need eye drops 2x's a day, which are very easy to apply. The vet says that I will maintain the vision that I currently have (which is 90%), provided I receive my eye meds as prescribed. Don't let my eye condition fool you, I am playful & outgoing, but can also be laid back. My foster mom says that I am the perfect mix of play, sweet & calm. I have appeared to be interested in a good game of fetch (provided you will let me keep it), but I am working on it. I also enjoy playing chase with one of my foster brothers, he's really fast.
I enjoy doing everything that other dogs like to do. My foster mom prefers a fenced yard for me, since I do have a slight vision issue. I am currently being fostered in the Greenville, SC area.
Mistletoe (13 weeks (March 8, 2015))
Meet Mistletoe a 13ishweek old Border Collie Mix:
Mistletoe's journey started when at 4 weeks old she was thrown from a moving car in Chesterfield County, SC in December and found herself saved by some good Samaritans who picked her up and took her to the shelter, where a PRBCR volunteer rescued her.
Despite her "ruff" start, Mistletoe has a zest for life that only a BC puppy can have. She is a Smooth-Coat girl who loves almost every dog and person she comes into contact with. She is being crate trained and is working on her house training, walking on a leash, and her basic obedience skills. Mistletoe is being clicker trained by her foster mom and has picked it up quite quickly. She has also been working on mat training and playing with mental stimulation games. She goes to work with her foster mom & one of her foster siblings every morning and loves to ride in the car. She has been on several road-trips (long & short) and is an excellent travel companion. She says "this is how I roll".
She is currently being fostered in a home with two Border Collies & two Labradors and she loves to play with each one of her foster siblings (although they may not feel as fondly about her). She adjusts her level of play for each of the dogs in the house. One of her favorite games is to hide under furniture just to aggravate her big Border Collie sister and she likes to snuggle up to the 'grumpy old brown dog' and take naps when he will let her. She is a confident & clever little girl who seems to maybe have some Billy-goat in her parentage because her foster mother has found her in the strangest of places- standing on a counter to get to treats, climbing in an office chair to take a nap, climbing on the couch to get to a toy off of a table for a foster sibling, climbing on top of her crate and a box to see her foster mom making her food. She is also quite a fast runner and can easily keep up with her foster siblings when they are running and retrieving the ball or playing soccer with the Jolly Ball in the back yard. She has recently discovered the water-hose and is fascinated by the water coming out of it. When she first came to her foster home (at 4 weeks old) she attempted to herd her foster siblings and has even been to see some sheep and other BCs at a herding clinic. To her foster mom's surprise, Mistletoe recently discovered that if she got up enough speed running from the kitchen to the living room, she could run and take a large leap and jump onto an ottoman and then jump into a large chair just like her Border Collie brother.
Mistletoe (AKA: Squirt) is a typical Border Collie puppy and can be quite inquisitive and is very intelligent. And left to her own devices, she can get into trouble quite quickly. She can be a relentless pest to her Labrador foster sister when she wants to play (or any of her foster siblings). She has very good problem solving skills and will require someone who can harness those skills and preferably someone with prior experience owning a herding breed.
Mistletoe would do best in a home where she will be given a job; that job could be Search & Rescue, Fly-ball, Agility, Disc-dog, Dock-Dogs, Herding, Obedience, Rally, or Free-style dance-; just don't ask her to sit still for long or hangout in your backyard all day or you may be surprised to find what she has found to entertain herself while you were gone. Your imagination and stamina will be the limit for this little girl. Mistletoe is currently being fostered in the Charleston, SC area.
Penny (Adoption Pending!!!!!)
Hi my name is Penny. I'm about a year old. When I was younger I had a bad day.
I escaped from my family and ran into the street and I was hit by a car and my leg was injured, pretty badly. My family took me to the vet, but the price was to fix me was too high, my family left me there. Some nice people at the clinic called Phoenix Rising to see if they would take care of me. I was taken to Atlanta to a nice foster family. Initially they thought that I would lose my leg. However thanks to Dr. Thomas, Dr. Amis and the team at Wellspring animal hospital I've been fixed up pretty well. The bills are kind of high, over 500 dollars so far. I still have about 4 weeks to go before I'll be ready to be adopted. Oh by the way I'll looking for a good home soon so if you are interested please contact my foster family.
Roscoe (4 month old male)
Roscoe the Rascal we call him lovingly, as he has spunk and personality yet... he is a very easy going pup. We believe he is 4 months old or so. He has been with us since the week before Christmas. Roscoe loves to run and play, he is well behaved inside the house. He is crate trained and housebroken. He gets along well with other dogs and children. He has an independent streak, so will come to snuggle and kiss on his humans, and then will walk away to go play with a toy or chew on a bone. He is loving without being "needy". He loves his daily walks down the block- we go 2 or 3 times a day. On the days we can grab a 3-4 mile walk, he is even happier. He loves to prance, and chase the other dogs, but is respectful of the pack and the hierarchy. He likes to steal and hide and chew on socks if he can find them laying around the house, but he has not ruined any shoes...Roscoe is a protector and will bark and strangers and noises to alert us, but then will come to stand my our side for his own reassurance. He likes squirrels and birds, and will run to find and chase them. In our family, we call Roscoe the perfect puppy. Sweet, loving, affectionate, obedient, willing to please, a total lovebug, and likely a good dog for agility training. He is a sweetie pie... overall, he will grow into a wonderful dog.
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.
