AVALON (Male) was the smallest of the pups but is now catching up to his siblings, weighing in at 18 pounds. He has a soft short coat which is mostly black with some brownish-red highlighting and ticking around his nose and on his chest. Avalon (Av, Avy), enjoys snuggling, LOVES his lap time, gets along well with all his doggy friends, and seems to be ok with cats.

PISMO (Male) is 19 pounds and oh so sweet. This beautiful boy is a black and white smooth coat with ticking. He loves a good play session with his siblings but also loves a quiet cuddle. A fast learner, Pismo will love to learn new things that will make him think as well as play & exercise. He might enjoy dog sports like agility, or canine scent work (aka nosework). PISMO will want to be with you, doing things together that you will both enjoy. He can also entertain himself with toys during down time. PISMO is willing to do whatever is asked of him and then snuggle with you afterward.

JESS is a typical, young herding dog in that he needs exercise, activity, and stimulation. He is good at entertaining himself. You can see how entertaining he is in the videos, playing with his toys and enjoying his bone. He also loves to engage with his humans. If his foster mom is not in the same room, he will go looking for her. Jess loves to go for walks in the neighborhood. During his walks, he is on the look-out for anything that moves, i.e., squirrels, rats, cats, lizards, bunnies. He sees them all and wants to chase. I would recommend a home without cats or other small pets. He has played very well with other dogs at the dog park and does not show any signs of aggression. He walks pretty well on a leash, is not over the top with pulling, and will follow with a little tug on the leash and a “Let’s go.” He loves walks! On walks, he is not bothered by other dogs or cars. He avoids large trucks that make noise, as the noise seems to make him a little nervous. He has not been reactive to bicycles, skateboarders, or motorcycles.

MAISEY is a darling 9-month-old, 40lb (and gaining) Border collie mix. She is sure to catch your eye with her tri-colors and her spotted nose! She has a low-maintenance smooth coat and the best floppy ears. MAISEY is a shy but friendly girl. She very happily greets anybody that walks in the door. MAISEY adores her foster siblings and would do best in a home with other dogs to help her continue to learn how to be a dog. She tries and wants to play, but just has not quite figured out what she is supposed to do.

PATRICK is a WONDERFUL dog with a lot of potential! He’s approximately seven months old, weighs 48 pounds, and has a short, smooth, black coat with white markings. PATRICK is a playful, energetic, loving adolescent pup. He has had a ton of dog social experiences and exposure. He loves his doggy friends. One of his favorite things is to romp and play in the yard with a doggy pal. He enjoys playing chase, bitey face, and WrestleMania. He will adjust his playstyle at the suggestion of his doggy friend. PATRICK also loves all humans. He is willing to approach humans, give them a little kiss, and then he’s off to play again. He loves balls, chews, and squeaky toys. There are never enough toys for PATRICK to choose from. He typically finds a toy and will self-entertain. As much as Patrick loves toys, he can also settle nicely in the house.

THE BOYS OF SUMMER litter is another NCBCRA sweet group of puppies that are sure to steal your heart. Born in June 2023, the pups are 9 weeks old & are ready to go to their forever homes. All of the puppies are “border collie” energetic & smart, so be prepared with games, training opportunities, or dog sports for these dearies; a few really like to play in water and all love toys. If you give them what they need to work their little brains & bodies, they all have an “off switch” & will be happy snuggling, or hanging out with you—some more than others, so ask lots of questions about the puppy you want to bring home. The puppies live with other dogs in their foster home, so they are well-socialized to dogs. They have had lots of visitors in their foster home, & they have been charming to one & all. They don’t yet have a firm grasp of housebreaking, as they’re all still together, providing each other with plenty of distractions. As smart as they are, that should come together once they have one-on-one, consistent direction from you. They eat their meals in their crates & have ridden in a large crate together for the ride to their foster home & to the vet without getting carsick. The BOYS OF SUMMER litter is being fostered Granite Bay, Placer County, CA.
