Assorted BCs

There is now a website specifically to list working dogs in pounds. If you would consider adopting a BC direct from a pound, then please have a look. Many dogs die each week in pounds due to the lack of sufficient good homes. Click here to go directly to the section for Border Collies.


Bonnie and Clyde --- (posted 14/12/2016) ---

Bonnie and Clyde's family have had to relocate, and the new home isn't ideal for an active pair of BCs. Bonnie and Clyde have been together since they were pups, and a home where they can stay together is preferred. If you were after a ready-made BC family, which is over its 'wild' years, then Bonnie and Clyde are made for the role. For more info on the pair please contact Angela on 0400 184 367 or email angelafratar@me.com


Indy --- (posted 13/2/2017) ---

Indy is a beautiful and much loved family pet, but after some debate her family have decided that they must be able to find a home that can manage her more successfully. Their location is against them, and this is something to take into account when looking at a new home. Indy is a loyal, loving girl who can be walked without a lead - unless she sees another dog, in which case she is going to desperately want to go and say hello. She is a very social girl. Indy is pretty well trained, she knows quite a few commands and will wait to eat until she is give the OK. Indy is also gentle with children and loves a cuddle. HOwever, Indy is an anxious girl and she is particularly upset by construction noise. A home in a quiet area, which can manage her exposure to noise, is sought. When she gets scared Indy will scale fences, so a plan to keep her safe in the yard is also needed. Although she does return home after escaping, it is not an OK behaviour, as she could get into trouble while out. Since she is house-trained, a home where she can be indoors when on her own would be ideal. If you would like a loving girl past puppyhood, who just wants to be safe in your household, then Indy might fit the bill. For more info on Indy please email cassandrablok@hotmail.com or phone 0439 043 757


Tarni --- (posted 17/2/2017) ---

Tarni is a pretty, classically marked girl who was rescued by her current carer, as she was unwanted in her previous home. Tarni is an older girl, and is not wanting to be really active, like a youngster. However she does love to swim, and is currently getting a swim every day - which she revels in. Tarni loves people and she loves attention. She is not enthused about other dogs. Basically Tarni is looking for a relaxed home where she can become one of the family, without being expected to run or play frisbee. For more info please contact Kate on 0477 655 648


Nala --- (posted 7/3/2017) ---

Nala is simply a sweetie, who loves all the usual BC pastimes, including going to the beach, walks, tug and fetch. She also likes cats, and generally other dogs, tho a little dog barking at her makes her react. Nala loves interacting with her people. She is used to being an outdoor dog, but would love to be allowed to stay indoors with her family. Nala's youth and reactivity make her best suited to a family with older children. For more info on Nala place contact Terese at tacaroid@gmail.com or phone 0415 669 953


Molly --- (posted 13/4/2017) ---

Molly is a sweet, pretty medium-length coated girl who loves people, including children and also loves other dogs. She is on the smaller side of a typical border collie. Molly is a very high energy girl, she loves to play fetch. She needs a home which will give her lots of mental and physical exercise. She will also need some management, to redirect her energies from undesireable behaviours including barking and chewing. For more info about Molly please contact Kathryn on 0413098753


Dog --- (posted 22/4/2017) ---

Dog is having some twists and turns in his young life. He is a good sized, classically attractive full-coated BC boy, who at 12 months ended up unclaimed in a pound. His current owner rescued him, and he's had a good couple of years, but now his owner is unable to care for him. So Dog is looking for a new home. Dog loves people, and he'll be happiest when getting to be with you. This could only be improved upon if you let him play with the hose :) which he also loves. Dog has a basic level of training, his recall isn't solid at present. This will improve quickly with some positives-only training. He hasn't spent a lot of time indoors, but when brought inside, when say there have been fireworks, he has simply settled near the door. Dog is currently not social with other dogs, having had little exposure to them. He will need more positive training with a gradual introduction to strange dogs, to improve this. BCRA can assist with this if requested. His name can be changed too, of course. For more info on Dog please contact Jennifer on 02 95258832


Louie --- (posted 27/4/2017) ---

Louie is a loving 7 yo black BC cross lab. She has a white blaze on her chest, and is lighter boned than your average lab, and she has a smooth coat. She's a very attractive girl. Louie loves company, has been easy to train as she just wants to be obedient, and to be with you. She loves being patted and scritched. Her favourite games are swimming and fetching the ball. Louie's family has expanded with the addition of small children, and Louie isn't comfortable around them, and this is causing her anxiety. A home is sought for Louie where she will be with experienced owners who understand that some dogs prefer adult company. Her anxiety with children can probably be improved, but it would need to be a gradual process, and this can't be managed in her current home. For more info on Louie please contact Penny on 0402 736 567.
