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 "Bentley" a one year old border collie FEMALE. She is a smooth coat, tricolor girl.
She was born on 9/8/20 and is spayed, microchipped, and on heartworm and flea prevention
Bentley is a brilliant girl and knows many basic commands(sit, stay, roll over, shake). Her best fun is playing in water and playing fetch. She has a high ball drive and could chase balls/frisbees until she drops.
Bentley loves other dogs, is house trained ( occasional accidents if left inside too long) but sleeps through the night inside without accidents. Bentley needs lots a chew toys if alone, still a chewer as she is still basically a puppy.
Bentley is adoptable through West TN Border Collie Rescue. She is being fostered in Oxford, MS.
Adoption applications are at www.bordercollierescuewesttn.org. Her adoption fee is $375 and we will require a fenced yard.
Meet "Sammie". This sweet girl is about 3 years old and is being fostered in the Memphis area. Sammie found herself in a middle TN shelter after she had puppies and, as often happens, her puppies were adopted and she was left behind.
She is an awesome, medium energy girl and avid squirrel patroller in her yard. She loves other dogs and people of all ages but she stalks the foster's cat. We think a no cat home is best for her.
Sammie is housebroken, spayed, vaccinated and on heartworm prevention. Her adoption fee is $275. We will require a fenced yard for her.
Applications are available at www.bordercollierescuewesttn.org

She loves people and gets along well with other dogs. She is untested with cats.

Pippi is spayed, housebroken, vaccinated and up to date on heartworm prevention.
