The Little Hebrides Puppies, like their Scottish island namesakes, are a collection of independent, self-sufficient spirits, eager to band together for mutual support, or have a romp across the lawn as the mood strikes them! Mother Skye, was an outstanding mama; doting on her charges throughout the day and night, imparting confidence and playfulness into all eight puppies. There are three males - Muck, Mull & Rum, and five females - Coll, Eigg, Iona, Rona, & Tiree.  Four are black coated, three buff colored and one a reddish boy. The trademark of this clan is their waggily tail! Mama Skye is a Border collie mix and the father is unknown, though many people feel these pups look to be a Labrador retriever mix.


The Little Hebrides Puppies have all been wormed, had their first of three rounds of puppy vaccines, are microchipped, and are on monthly heartworm & flea/tick prevention. As a condition of puppy adoption, each will need to be altered by his or her new owner when he or she reaches approximately 6 months (specific time to be determined by your vet). In addition to the adoption fee, puppy adoption requires a $100 spay/neuter deposit. Upon our receiving the spay/neuter certificate from you, the deposit is refunded.


If you have an approved Northern California Border Collie Rescue & Adoptions Application and wish to enquire about one of the Little Hebrides Puppies, please email us at Adoptions@norcalbcrescue.org. 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.  The Little Hebrides Puppies are being fostered in Auburn, in Placer County, California.

COLL (female), all black with longer length fur like her momma, our COLL is all black with a bit of white on her chin. She's a sweetheart, playful and loving, adventurous and confident. COLL likes the big dogs, her siblings and PuckleCat (who’s really just not that into puppies!) We love her spirit and sweet nature.   

IONA (female), is a beautiful caramel colored pup with a white chest, throat and "wings" on her cheeks. Calm and confident, IONA is a player, but will wander off exploring on her own. IONA is a lover, giving sweet kisses and nuzzles all accompanied by that  precious      puppy breath! IONA has a medium long coat and has grabbed our hearts, we'll miss her!

EIGG (female), first born and almost all black, EIGG has a darling white star on her neck, one white paw and a tiny white tip on her tail! She's calm and observant, likes to explore and adores a cuddle! Tummy tickles are a must and her playful side comes out with the other pups and big dogs too! Lots of kisses and puppy breath are all a part of our EIGG.

MUCK (male), smallest of the males, he sports a beautiful buff/brindle longish coat with 4 white paws, a black mask and black trailing down to the tip of his tail. Sometimes forthright, sometimes reserved, MUCK is almost always the last to leave the grassy play area to come inside at night. MUCK loves the out of doors, plays with his siblings and follows the big dogs everywhere . . . and is first in line to be petted!! A snuggler who curls up at your feet, that's our love bug MUCK!
