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.

UNA is 12 weeks and 15 pounds with a soft black coat, classic white markings, and the most astonishing ears! Occasionally NASA calls on her to listen into deep space for them. Her coat will probably be short (not smooth) to medium in length. And her personality? “Play” is Una’s middle name. She loves to play fetch with whatever toy or ball is thrown. She also loves to play tug with her foster mom and dad, or with any or all of the big dogs in the house. Her adult dog buddies Perkins and Skittles accommodate her whenever they are together. Una has recently graduated into the big dog room, where the big dogs, in turn, join her for socialization and play.

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.

Our little cuddlebug, MIYA, is a mere 25 lbs, 1 year old, with a smooth, gorgeous tri-color coat. She loves to snuggle on the couch or in bed (if allowed she would LOVE that). She will be fine in a crate overnight as well. Miya gets along well with the other dogs in the house. She really loves the company of other young dogs to play with. They provide her much needed comfort and outlet for her energy. This girl loves to play and wrestle!

OWEN is 6 months of age and slight of build at 28 pounds. His smooth coat and bat ears point to his being a McNab / border collie mix. His shiny coat is dark brown with white markings on his chest. OWEN gets along well with dogs young and old, but leans towards and prefers his people. When let out of his crate, he wants pets before going outside. When outside he will be at the center of all activity, yet will seek out his humans for affirmation, pets, and love. He is all about climbing up on the bench with his foster dad, as long as Jet or Skittles hasn’t beaten him to it.

JET craves love and affection. At 3 years and 41 pounds, this beautifully marked rough coat (medium length) red and white border collie is all about his people. His golden eyes will make your heart melt. From minute one of their first meeting, JET leaned into his foster dad for pets and lovin’. He really wants to be close to his people…like if he could get inside your shirt close that would be just fine with JET.

Meet GiGi! Gigi is a beautiful red and while rough-coated border collie mix. She is an approximately 2-year-old, 38-pound spayed female. She has beautiful brown eyes, soft ears, and a gorgeous, feathered tail. She is very friendly and wants to engage with everyone she meets, even at the vet’s office. GiGi is a typical, young herding dog in that she needs lots of exercise, activity, and stimulation. Without it, she gets bored and looks for things to do. GiGi loves to be out and about, enjoying walks in the neighborhood and going to the dog park. She generally plays very well with the other dogs and does not show any signs of aggression. That said, she does try to herd some of the other dogs and can play a little rough at times. And she sometimes thinks it’s fun to steal other dogs’ balls or to play when another dog doesn’t really don’t want to play. However, she responds well to direction from others and to being told “that’s enough.” GiGi loves walks! She is great on a leash; she does not pull and will generally sit when asked to sit. She is learning to bring the leash to the door for her walks. She gets very excited when “leash” is mentioned. On her walks, she is not bothered by cars or trucks, but she is not fond of the roaring sounds of motorcycles.

When inside, if we give him a sliver on the couch he’ll squeeze his way in or just make his home on dad’s lap (try saying no to that face).
