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.
Our Adoptable Boys
Meet Pepper. This very handsome boy is almost a perfect companion. He is just over a year old and full of fun and love. Pepper weighs about 50 lbs but is very happy to try and be a lap dog with anybody that meets him. He gets along well with other dogs, cats and any stranger he meets. Pepper is housebroken, up to date on shots, neutered and microchipped. He will do best in an active home.
We will require a fenced yard for him and excellent vet references. His adoption fee is $295. He is being fostered in Memphis.
