One Thanksgiving Cornucopia of Puppy
still available for adoption - say hello to Zin!

The THANKSGIVING CORNUCOPIA PUPPIES are all started on their puppy vaccines, wormed, and microchipped. 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 THANKSGIVING CORNUCOPIA PUPPIES 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.

Zinfandel (aka ZIN) is an easy-to-groom 14-week-old smooth-coated border collie/McNab/maybe a little cattle dog mix boy.  His ears will probably stand up, but right now they are undecided, & we think they are adorable. ZIN loves toys that squeak or crackle, & one of his favorites is a used water bottle.  He also likes to chew on soup bones or any good sticks he finds in the yard.  He gives great kisses & likes to tug gently on his foster mom’s hair to show her that he loves her.  ZIN is a great partner on walks & short hikes with his foster mom & the adult dogs in his foster home.  

ZIN loves to learn & is motivated by toys & treats.  He sleeps in an x-pen at night with his siblings, but he goes into his crate on his own for all of his meals.  He is learning to go potty on the newspapers in his puppy pen, & he is learning to go in & out of the doggy door, so he is on his way to being house-trained.

ZIN is being fostered in Live Oak in Sutter County.
