At about 2-years, SEAMUS is a calm, sensitive, fast-learning pleaser of a border collie/McNab. While initially timid, SEAMUS is very people-oriented, and quickly became devoted to and watchful of his foster humans. He is highly attuned to instructions and to the moods of people around him. It does not take much to direct or re-direct him, and he loves to learn new things. SEAMUS does not chew, and seldom barks or whines. He has good recall, is housebroken, crate-trained, rides well in a car, loves sleeping snuggled up to a person, other dog or both, and is always up for outdoor endeavors with his human family.  Click/tap to see and read more about SEAMUS.

TOBY & HUNTER are siblings, available for separate adoption. They are 10 month old, playful, fun and well behaved pups. They were surrendered to a shelter by their owner who couldn't keep them, though broken hearted to part with them. It is apparent they were well loved as they are both affectionate and loving in return. TOBY (45 lbs) has a shorter, smooth coat with more black coloring and a docked tail. HUNTER (49 lbs) has a medium rough coat, more gray merle coloring with fringe on his tail.
