MAYA is a darling 6-year-old border collie/Australian cattle dog mix. Like her border collie ancestors, she bonds strongly with her humans, loving to snuggle up, follow you everywhere, & roll on her back for a belly rub. Like her ACD ancestors, she loves to chase a toy (& probably any small, moving creature like a cat) & do silly butt tucks around the yard. She has a stocky body & when she jumps, it's with all four feet in the air!  Did we mention adorable? MAYA loves people & she has learned to be respectful of the other animals in her foster home with the exception of a bossy female border collie. Sometimes she will look at another dog with an overly keen eye or even posture, but a quick "that'll do" or "leave it" puts a stop to any temptation. Click/tap here to see and read more about Maya!!

Meet GORDON, a 4-year-old happy boy who is hungry for your affection! He has an easy to care for smooth coat with bold shawl, socks and ticking to go along with his expressive dark brown eyes.  GORDON is loving and friendly. He loves to be with his people and gets along splendidly with his pack mates. Click/tap here to watch a video of GORDON with his pal Flash. GORDON is the type of dog that will have a deep and lasting bond with his owner.  He weighs about 46 pounds and would be considered medium energy. He is loyal and super smart.
