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.


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


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


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


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


Ned Kelly --- (posted 17/2/2017) ---

Ned Kelly is a gorgeous and loved family pet. His family have moved to a property where he and his companion Tilly (3 yo kelpie) have no space. So a home where they can have a more appropriate life is sought. Ned Kelly would fit in with a family with or without children (he lives with littlies now) and with or without other dogs. He has basic level obedience, and he loves herding although he has not been trained for it. Ned was rescued when he was 1 yo, and has become a confident happy boy who will be a great addition to someone's home. For more info on Ned please contact Sophie on 0410152068.


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
