Hi. My name is Ty. I am about 6-years-old, and I am a Border collie mix, weighing about 50 pounds. My coat is gorgeous, shiny, and medium-length. The first thing I hear people say when they meet is “What a lovely dog!” And they are right. Not only am I gorgeous, but very well- mannered and loving. I am a BUDDY dog, just bursting with cuteness, personality, and devotion. I go everywhere, and wherever I go, I am very well-behaved. No jumping, or barking, no yapping at dogs across the street, or lunging at the end of the leash, and no barking at the mailman or garbage people. I am well-balanced, calm, and centered, especially for a herding dog. I even behave well at the coffeehouse or tea shop.

LITTLE JO! A sweet and cuddly 10-12-week-old puppy

MEG is a darling 11 pound, 10-week-old Border collie/McNab mix girlie, with the slick, easy-care McNab coat, & the smarts & keen attention common to both breeds. She is a confident, enthusiastic, social girl. She has a "bring it on" attitude & wants to do everything, sometimes all at once, which makes for some hilarious moments. She wants to make sure that she doesn't miss a thing. Meg is rocket fast & already very agile for a pup; she is a capable climber & jumper. Meg seems to want to have some kind of job. Sometimes she chooses to chase, crawl on, and steal toys from the older dogs in her foster home. They are mostly tolerant of her antics, & eventually she will leave them alone, finding a great time doing something else. Meg thinks it's all fun & can't understand why everyone else isn't joining in. She loves tug toys, chew toys, sticks (although we discourage that for her safety), & she loves any & all treats. So, she will work & learn for toys & treats.

SARGENT (AKA Sarge) is a 36+ pound, 6-month-old neutered border collie mix, who is as beautiful on the inside as he is on the outside. Like his sister Tootsie, he is active & playful, yet is surprisingly easy-going for an adolescent pup. He is endearingly clumsy & goofy sometimes, but don't let this fool you! Sarge is smart as a whip & learns whatever is asked of him quickly. For example, he learned to use the doggy door in his foster home in a fingersnap!

TOOTSIE is a 25#, 6-month-old spayed border collie mix, who has a lovely, gentle temperament. She has a beautiful sleek coat. Like her brother Sarge, she is active & playful. She particularly likes to play with her brother. She might like a home with another playful dog. She is friendly & social with people, but will offer an alert bark when someone she doesn't know comes to call. She is easy-going, & is a little bit on the soft side. Tootsie likes to please & doesn't like to think she's made her human unhappy.

TIBBY (Mr. Tibbs) is a 25lb, 6-month-old male Border collie mix with ears for days! He has a lovely easy care smooth coat (like a Labrador retriever’s coat) and the cutest spots on his big ears. In fact, he might have some Labrador retriever in this background. TIBBY gets along very well with other dogs and would be best placed in a home with other dogs. He will chase cats, but he does not hurt them so he could live in a house with very dog savvy cats. TIBBY loves the human that he is bonded with and will cuddle (for a few minutes) on the couch or lay at your feet. His favorite thing in the world is playing with his foster pack mate Cindy, who is about the same age. In play, he likes to wrestle and run zoomies, so any dogs who engages him in play would need to like his play style. He will back off if the other dog lets him know “enough already.” He is a young puppy, after all! He leaves the older dog in his foster home alone, mostly.

DOVE saw to it that all four of her Bird Pups found great homes, and now it’s her turn. DOVE sports a short white coat with red ticking behind her ears and an ever so subtle red strip along the middle of her back. She is slight of build. At 45 lbs. she looks like she should put on a few pounds, but even three squares a day has not resulted in added weight. We don’t know what her DNA says, but we know she has a border collie heart and mindset. She is very active, loves to run and play with her buddy Perkins and whatever puppy we have added to the mix. She loves to pick up random sticks, branches or tennis balls and let them try to catch her to take it away. They don’t succeed but they have fun trying.

PERKINS is a friendly boy who wants to be included in all his family’s activities. He loves being around people and immediately perks up when you walk into his area. He is hoping for one of two things…its meal time or he’ll hear the words “Let’s go outside." He will rush to the door, tail wagging, just waiting for you to open it. The excitement doubles when you walk out that door with him. That way he can show off his “zoomies” skill, chase a ball or play with one of his dog buddies. His best bud right now is our little 10 week old baby girl Wren. They love to chase, wrestle and chew on the grass together. They also room together in a penned in area in our living room and really enjoy each other’s company. They have full access to our deck via the doggy door and use it so they can enjoy the indoors and the outdoors. Our dog savvy cats do not trust him, as he likes them way too much. For that reason he will need a cat-free environment.

Meet SIMON, a beautifully marked 70-pound medium coat 3-year-old! SIMON is a sweet boy who wants to be with his people, and loves to play and cuddle. He is mischievous, social, curious, sensitive, and still thinks he might be a lap dog. When giving SIMON any correction (for behavior), his soft eye response is “What’s the problem?” and then “Hugs! More Hugs!” He’ll need gentle guidance to learn basic commands, and of course some supported practice. A play buddy and sturdy toys will make SIMON a happy dog. SIMON gets along well with his foster packmates, travels nicely in the car, is crate-trained, and knows to go potty outside. Overall as you can see in his video, he is very, very sweet.

Meet GORDY! This sweet boy is so excited for his new adventure. He greets everyone he meets with enthusiastic tail wags and a whole body wiggle that will melt your heart! He’s still a little on the shy side though and has a tendency to do a kind of submissive belly crawl when he encounters new situations, but he embraces every new situation and everyone he meets with a happy demeanor.
