Meet KIP, an active and adorable boy who loves to play! KIP is a medium coat, short tail, 60-pound bundle of love with a sunny personality. Assessed at an age range of 1-3 years, we think KIP is on the younger side with his playfulness and constant encouragement of his foster pack mates to run, wrestle, chase, and hang out! Watch KIP’s YouTube video!

KIP is food motivated and is a smart boy, learning his name in just a few days. He may have been an outside dog previously, but has adapted well to having good manners in the house including being crate-trained. While he would prefer to be on the bed at night with his foster parents (he wiggles a lot and his BC foster sister won’t allow him up), KIP sleeps in his crate all night.

KIP gets along well with a variety of dog personalities (including old and cranky) and would enjoy having a playmate in his forever home. He is exuberant and confident, yet always wants to please his humans. KIP loves squeaky toys, deer antler chews, rope toys, sticks, and other fun items (he found a 30-year-old Lego block in his foster family’s yard!). KIP would do best in an active home where he can be part of the family and get regular exercise. KIP travels well, likes being with people and dogs, but may be a bit too cat curious.

KIP is micro-chipped, neutered, heart worm negative and on preventative, and up to date on vaccinations. If you have an approved Northern California Border Collie Rescue & Adoptions Application and wish to enquire about KIP please email us at If you have an approved adoption application with Border Collie Rescue of Northern California let us know and we will request it be forwarded to us for consideration. KIP is being fostered in Granite Bay in Placer County, California.
