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 $300.
Meet Toddy. He is about 10 yrs old and his beloved owner passed away. That has left him with no home. The owner’s caregiver promised her that she would see to finding him a good home where he can live his life out in comfort. Toddy can stare intensely at any new dogs but has proven that he can live happily with a female. He does not do well with cats. Toddy LOVES people and would love nothing more then to spend his senior years with someone who would shower him with that same love in return.
If you can offer Toddy a final home, please call Karen at 615-617-9177 for more info on Toddy or to set up a meet and greet. He is located in middle TN
Meet "Griffon", also known as "Po". This handsome boy is a 15 week old, purebred, tricolor border collie boy. He is from our recent puppy mill intake and he is now ready for a permanent and wonderful home.
Po is a healthy, happy, people loving, other dog loving boy. He has one more puppy shot and neuter to go prior to adoption but he will be ready April 24.
We will give preference to adopters with border collie experience. As with all of our dogs, we will require a fenced yard (no invisible fencing).
Po is being fostered in Collierville TN. His adoption fee is $350. Applications are found at www.bordercollierescuewesttn.org
