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.


Lucy --- (posted 10/7/2016) ---

Lucy was found, an unchipped, unidentifiable stray 2 years ago. Her family love her but she needs more "people time" than they can give. Lucy is black and white with a shorter, thinner coat than a classic BC. She is extremely friendly and sees it as her job to play fetch. She gets along great with our other male dog and dogs of her own size but doesn't seem to like smaller female dogs. She is great on the lead, a great jogging partner and she loves to play ball at the park. Its not very often that she will bark or make much noise but may howl along with the sirens. She has got a fair sized yard to play in at the moment but she loves to have open space or at least someone who may be able to give her more time. As she moves around very quickly she may not be suited to a family that has small children. She is a very happy dog but does get frightened by storms or loud cracking noises, this is when she proves to us that she is a great Houdini and will get out any way possible. Lucy needs a home that will prevent her from escaping, and give her the ongoing mental and physical stimulation that a BC needs. For more info please contact Jacqui on 0409796071


Max --- (posted 25/10/2016) ---

Max has been rescued from a less than ideal home, and he is now looking for a new forever home, with a family who can manage and train him to feel part of the household. Max has had little training, and is not very focussed on people. He needs lots of positives to help him want to interact with people, and learn how to be a family pet. Max would prefer a home without cats. Max loves running on the beach and swimming, and he's happy in an off-leash dog-park or in doggy day care. For more info on Max please contact Diane on 0414 569 477


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


Vixen --- (posted 5/1/2017) ---

Vixen is a pretty, happy, active BC girl who is not able to live happily with two other female BCs and so a more suitable home is being sought for her. Most of they time they are fine. But when a rough game commences, often between the older two BCs, Vixen decides to try to help. Vixen doesn't know when to stop and this is sometimes resulting in vet visits. A home with no other dogs, or with a dog with whom rough games are not initiated is sought. In other regards Vixen is a lovely girl. She likes people and loves games including fetch and catch. Vixen is desexed with vet work up to date. For more info on her please contact Ben on 0421 964 708


Kokoda and Matilda --- (posted 11/1/2017) ---

Due to their owners change of circumstances these two BCs are looking for a new home. Although they are pretty happy together, they can be rehomed individually if that seems the best option. Kokoda is a 3yo red and white boy. He needs a little more socialising with other friendly dogs, at the moment he is suspicious of dogs he doesn't know. He is thin-framed with a long coat and a very fluffy tail. Kokoda loves walks and is a pretty easy dog. Matilda is on the small side, black and white with a shorter coat. She is only 12 months old - still a puppy. Matilda is shy, but gets on OK with other dogs. She has a tendency to get carsick on windy roads. Both are desexed and both of them are toilet trained in the house, and will wait to eat, or shake hands if asked. For more info on this pair please contact Julie on 0412 493 303
