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.


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


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.


CJ --- (posted 5/11/2017) ---

CJ is a sweet soul looking for a new home due to no fault of his own. He is a beloved family pet who currently lives with a 2 1/2 human boy with whom there have been no issues. (Like any BC he is exciteable and strong, and so he is not recommended as a playmate for toddlers.) He is good with humans and other dogs, tho he will bark at a stranger visiting the house. CJ likes to be with his people, walking, chilling in front of the TV - whatever you want to do. CJ does have skin issues in reaction to some brands of dog food, and this needs to be managed with his diet. For more info on CJ please contact Jessie at jessieannelee@hotmail.com


Mature BCs --- (posted 5/1/2018) ---

There is a ready-made BC family looking for a new home or homes in Bathurst. Due to changed circumstances new homes are being sought. They can be separated, or not. The primary concern is that they are loved in their new places. There are two females, Panda and Bonny and one male Zorro. Panda is the youngest, being 8 yo, and she would be best in a home with no new dogs, and definitely no cats or pocket pets. All three are long coated, working dogs, but pet homes are sought. If you would like the company of a BC (or two) that is past its wilder youthful years, then this might be the answer for you. For more info on these lovely dogs please contact Julie on 0421 203 619.


Harry and Bronson --- (posted 20/1/2018) ---

Due to a sad change in circumstances this pair of boys are urgently seeking a new home. They can be separated if necessary. Harry is a BC lab cross with a BC markings and fuller coat, and one blue eye. He is a friendly, loving boy and a snuggler. Bronson is a kelpie lab cross, yellow with a short coat, and the fine bones and long legs of a kelpie. He loves to swim. He is also a sweetie, who loves people and will sit in your lap if you let him. Both boys are desexed. If you would like more info about Harry and Bronson please contact Naomee on atchinastud@yahoo.com


Zahri --- (posted 20/1/2018) ---

Zahri is a very pretty and active girl. She looks more like a lab than a BC, with her yellow short coat, but she has a BC frame with slender legs and pricked ears. She also has a BC temperament. Zahri loves people and she loves having something to do. Extended games of fetch are wonderful! When playing with other dogs, one of them will have to be the 'sheep' so that Zahri has something to herd. She is quite boisterous in her play too, so dogs of similar size would be desirable in a multi-dog home. Zahri is OK with children, but like many BCs can be overwhelmed by loud and exuberant toddlers so a family with older children would be ideal. Zahri is toilet trained and knows lots of commands, and is used to walking off-lead. Some training in on-lead walking will be needed if that is required. Like any BC, Zahri will need ongoing management and training, with considerable mental and physical stimulation to keep her content. For more info on Zahri please contact Vivienne on 0438 725 241
