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? Click/tap here to see and read more about Maya!!

Let me introduce myself . . . I’m BELLE! My foster mom tells me I am the beauty I am named for, with a soft brown and white smooth coat. I am on the smaller side for a border collie, and weigh about 34 pounds and I am three years old. I love to be petted and would climb in your lap if that is okay with you. I am gentle and sweet and really want to be to be a loyal member of the pack, to love and be loved.  Right now I am feeling a little needy, but as my confidence grows, I do better. I have nice manners, I do my best to not jump up you and I seem to be pretty good on a leash, I know “sit” and recall when you call me BELLE. Click/tap here to see and read more about Belle!!
