 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 Rayne...Rayne is a sweet girl, about 1 year old and weighing in at 30 lbs. She and her siblings were abandoned on the side of the road and we believe they had very limited human interaction prior to rescue.
Rayne is great with other dogs and finds comfort in taking her cues from them as she learns household routines. She is crate trained, house broken and is learning to enjoy a pampered life. She makes a great home office companion (currently spends her days under foster dad's desk while he works).
She is extremely shy and not well socialized. She will require a lot of patience and kindness as she is still learning to trust people. She is not trained in any traditional sense, and will need time to build confidence. A quiet home with other dogs would be the ideal setting for this sweet pup. For someone willing to put in the time, she will be a wonderful companion.
Rayne is vaccinated, spayed, microchipped and on heartworm prevention.
She is being fostered in middle MS.  Her fee is $325
Applications are available at www.bordercollierescuewesttn.org
As always, we will require a fenced yard.

SHYLA

Meet "Shyla". This beautiful girl is about 20 mth old and came to us because her family was no longer able to keep her. They drove many hrs to bring her to us and were broken hearted to give her up.
Shyla has alot of border collie energy and a very strong herding drive. She loves to play with other dogs although we think she'll do best in a home with male dogs. Because of her herding drive, we will not place her in a home with small children or cats.
Her ideal home will be an active home with at least one other dog to play with and someone that can give her all the attention and continued training she needs.
Shyla is being fostered in Memphis. She is housebroken, up to date on shots, spayed and on heartworm prevention.
Her adoption fee is $350 and we will (as we always do) require a fenced yard.

DIVA

Meet baby, "Diva". This pretty puppy was found along a roadside with two other pups. Diva was very tiny, neglected and frightened. One of our rescue friends took all three in and nursed them to health. Diva is now ready for a forever home.
She is about 11 weeks old, weighs 8 lbs. She is partially housebroken, leash trained and fully crate trained. Diva has had a round of puppy shots and her adoption fee of $300 will cover remaining puppy shots and spay at the appropriate age.
Diva goes to work with her foster every day and has gotten great socialization. She loves other dogs and people.
Applications for Diva are available at www.contact@bordercollierescuewesttn.org
