Assorted BCs

There is now a website specifically to list working dogs in pounds. If you would consider adopting a BC direct from a pound, then please have a look. Many dogs die each week in pounds due to the lack of sufficient good homes. Click here to go directly to the section for Border Collies.


Nala --- (posted 7/3/2017) ---

Nala is simply a sweetie, who loves all the usual BC pastimes, including going to the beach, walks, tug and fetch. She also likes cats, and generally other dogs, tho a little dog barking at her makes her react. Nala loves interacting with her people. She is used to being an outdoor dog, but would love to be allowed to stay indoors with her family. Nala's youth and reactivity make her best suited to a family with older children. For more info on Nala place contact Terese at tacaroid@gmail.com or phone 0415 669 953


Molly --- (posted 13/4/2017) ---

Molly is a sweet, pretty medium-length coated girl who loves people, including children and also loves other dogs. She is on the smaller side of a typical border collie. Molly is a very high energy girl, she loves to play fetch. She needs a home which will give her lots of mental and physical exercise. She will also need some management, to redirect her energies from undesireable behaviours including barking and chewing. For more info about Molly please contact Kathryn on 0413098753


Louie --- (posted 27/4/2017) ---

Louie is a loving 7 yo black BC cross lab. She has a white blaze on her chest, and is lighter boned than your average lab, and she has a smooth coat. She's a very attractive girl. Louie loves company, has been easy to train as she just wants to be obedient, and to be with you. She loves being patted and scritched. Her favourite games are swimming and fetching the ball. Louie's family has expanded with the addition of small children, and Louie isn't comfortable around them, and this is causing her anxiety. A home is sought for Louie where she will be with experienced owners who understand that some dogs prefer adult company. Her anxiety with children can probably be improved, but it would need to be a gradual process, and this can't be managed in her current home. For more info on Louie please contact Penny on 0402 736 567.


Mieko --- (posted 14/6/2017) ---

Mieko is a beautiful but very soft female BC who needs a home that has experience with BC's, especially timid ones. Mieko is super intelligent, and knows all her toys by name and colour, and can find your phone for you, if you've forgotten where you put it. Mieko's intelligence comes with anxiety and over-thinking, which makes her nervous about anything that she doesn't know (sounds or objects). She was frightened by a squealing toddler when she was a pup, and has never gotten over that, so she is scared of all little people. Mieko's anxiety over strange things includes other dogs. Meiko needs an experienced BC-owning home, where she will be able to be an indoor dog, and where her confidence with all things strange can slowly be positively developed. Mieko is desexed with one blue eye and one brown eye. For more information on Mieko please contact Belinda on 0404 248 260


Leo and Max --- (posted 25/6/2017) ---

Leo (caramel and white) and Max (black and white) are a pair of littermates who have never been separated, so the preference is to find them a home together. Their current family have realised that taking on two young BCs was more than they expected, and with very mixed feelings they are looking for a home that will have more time to spend with, and manage, these two boys. Both of them know basic commands and will sit, or wait to eat. They are very friendly, and exuberant in their greetings. They love activity, and walks and playing tug. Neither of them is very fussed with a ball. They both love a snuggle. Leo and Max will need to be desexed as a condition of their rehoming. Their vaccinations are current. For more info on these lovely boys please contact Ricky on 0414 629 364


Rigby --- (posted 5/9/2017) ---

Rigby currently lives on a hobby farm, and although he has plenty of space he wants more to do. Rigby is proving to be a fantastic dog, extremely obedient and great with other dogs. He has proven himself good with command, keen to work, and he exercises some control with working with the two farm sheep. His desire to work, work and run, is not being satisfied on the hobby farm, and a home where he might be able to work more is sought. Rigby would be a great candidate for competitive herding, or another active dog sport. For more information on Rigby please contact Lisa on 0411440866 or email L271163@gmail.com


Lincoln --- (posted 12/9/2017) ---

Lincoln is a beautiful, classically marked boy who needs a new home through no fault of his own. Lincoln loves to be active, and so a home looking for an active companion would be ideal. Lincoln has no formal training but he is a lovely boy with no vices. He is scared of thunderstorms. Lincoln will be desexed before he is rehomed. If you were after a BC that was past puppyhood, and who's personality is fully formed you might be very happy with Lincoln. For more info please contact Barbara on 0409160758


Banjo --- (posted 26/9/2017) ---

Banjo is a stunning, classically marked black and white boy who is needing a new home due to a change in his family's circumstances. They are reluctant to part with him, and so only the best home will do. Banjo is obedient and smart and loves playing fetch (all day if you have time) or swimming. He can be a bit pushy with other dogs and would be best in either a single pet home, or with someone who understands the working BC. Banjo loves to round up the chickens. He would love to have a job to do. For more info on Banjo please contact Hayley on 0405227341. Banjo is desexed.


Hugo --- (posted 4/10/2017) ---

Hugo is a beautiful and sensitive boy who's had a checquered start to his young life. He was originally owned by a cafe, and as he grew his jumping on the customers was no longer cute, it was annoying. So hugo was given to a farmer to try out as a working dog. This didn't eventuate, and he spent some time chained up, until he was rescued by his current family. Unfortunately their life is changing and Hugo now needs a permanent home. Hugo is now fit and well, and he loves people and other dogs. He has the energy of a typical BC and needs some outlets for this, both mental and physical. He is also somewhat anxious, and a home that will work on building his confidence would be ideal. For more info on Hugo please contact Hellen on 0403 497 246.


Kokoda and Jeddah --- (posted 5/10/2017) ---

A change in family circumstances sees this pair of BCs looking for a new home, preferably together. They are both housetrained, and they get on well together, but Jeddah would prefer a home with no other dogs than Kokoda. She gets on well with cats, but doesn't like possums. Kokoda is red and white and is a very soft boy. He also gets on with cats, and is intimidated by dogs he doesn't know. For more info on this pair please contact Julie on 0412493303.
