NELLIE is a young red and white Border Collie female. She has a beautiful silky coat and enjoys frequent brushing and lots of ear scratches and pats. She has patterns of red throughout her mostly white coat; and an adoring gaze from deep and thoughtful eyes. Mostly this girl enjoys hanging out with her special person(s); whatever you are up to she wants to be nearby but she is also happy to nap if you are working. She will also wait and rest patiently alone in her crate when necessary and has never had an accident in the house. NELLIE is not a big barker; she doesn’t even seem to mind when the UPS man delivers a package and rings the doorbell.

Sweet little FERN is a medium coat tan and white border collie. She is a petite 35 lbs, about 2 years old. FERN came in with a group of dogs from a hoarding situation and was shy and under socialized. It didn't take her long to figure out that her foster home was a pretty great place. She has settled in very nicely but still needs slow introductions to new people.  She warms up after 10-15 minutes with a little encouragement and patience. Once she gets to know you FERN loves her people and pack mates equally. She gets along fine with cats and mostly ignores them. She follows her person around the house and wants to cuddle at any opportunity. Click/tap here to see and read more about Fern.
