Our Adoptable Boys
A word about our adoption process...
We are often asked about our adoption process, how long it takes and "will I get the dog I want". Please understand that our mission is to place the right dog in the right home. Not all border collies are the same and we work hard to match the needs of the dog to the home that can best meet those needs. We have criteria that we generally live by in adopting. There is some flexibility depending on the dog but generally:
1. We require fencing. If we say "fence required" please do not apply until you have a solid fence (no invisible fence) in place.
2. We generally will not adopt to families with children under the age of 6. Border collies are herding dogs and that intense drive that makes them so appealing to us, also can make them unsuitable as companions for small children .
3. If we indicate "border collie experience preferred" it is because we have a dog that we know will be a challenge for someone that is not acquainted with the characteristics of the breed. Many border collies are intense, intelligent and energetic dogs and sometimes they can be too much for someone that is new to the breed.
AT THE TIME OF ADOPTION, ALL OF OUR DOGS ARE SPAYED/NEUTERED, UP TO DATE ON SHOTS & HEARTWORM NEGATIVE. Adoption fees generally range from $250 to $400.
Meet "Buddy". This sweet boy is about 11-12 mths old and is a bc mix. He is being fostered in Clarksville, TN. Buddy was a stray but appeared well taken care of but his owners never came for him. His fosters say this about him, "We've been working on teaching him to play fetch. He's still a little he’s skittish and shy but getting better every day. He tries to imitate our border collie boy...wants to be just like him.
Buddy is very sweet and gentle. He loves cuddles and enjoys napping on his person. He would probably be great at agility."
We don't know how he would be with cats but he is friendy and submissive with other dogs.
Buddy is neutered and up to date on shots We will require a fenced yard for him (no invisible fencing).
