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 13 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.

MALIBU (Male located in Granite Bay CA) is 11.87 pounds and is a adventurous, curious, confident, & with lots of energy. Malibu loves to be in your lap to be petted and cuddled. He has a white chest, light shawl, a white blaze on his face and a touch of white on his two back feet. He will be a blast to train, using toys & treats & through the wonderful bond he’ll form with his person, & after training or lots of play, he will love to snuggle. Because he is smart & high energy, he will need things to do to stimulate him mentally as well as physically to help him be the best boy he can be. He might enjoy dog sports like agility, or canine scent work (aka nose work). He will want to be with you, doing things together that you will both enjoy. Malibu will be willing to do whatever you ask him to do & then snuggle with you afterward.
ZUMA (Male located in Granite Bay CA) is 10.47 pounds with a lovely coat & the dearest expression. He has a large blaze on his face, a white chest, shawl, white socks and a white-tipped tail. Zuma is the most reserved of the litter, is playful & energetic, & he settles nicely. He often watches for a few moments before joining in whatever is going on. Zuma likes to play with people most & he’s also happy to play with toys of his own. Zuma will want to be with you, doing things together that you will both enjoy. And because he is thoughtful & affectionate, he will bond easily. If you’re looking for a lovely, smart border collie boy who will be willing to do whatever you ask him to do & then snuggle with you afterward, Zuma may be your new best friend
THE BOYS OF SUMMER litter are current on vaccinations, as well as heartworm and flea/tick prevention. They are microchipped. As a condition of puppy adoption, they will need to be altered by their new owner when they reach approximately 6 months (specific time to be determined by your vet). In addition to the adoption fee, puppy adoption requires a $75 spay/neuter deposit. Upon our receiving the spay/neuter certificate from you, the deposit is refunded.
