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.


Cooper --- (posted 16/5/2017) ---

Cooper is a beautiful young BC boy who likes being part of the family, being indoors, or playing in his wading pool (he loves water). However, Cooper is not well-socialised, especially with men, and also reactive. He is fearful of novel things and experiences. This has made his behaviour a bit unpredictable: he will be happily getting a tummy rub from someone, and then decide he doesn't like it and growl. Cooper is so unhappy with the idea of a walk that he just won't move, so he doesn't walk on lead at present. Cooper is not the dog for an ordinary pet home, or a home with young children. He needs an experienced dog-savvy family who will be prepared to put an effort into socialising him and setting rules for his young life. Assistance from a vet behaviouralist would be BCRA's advice. If you have lived with a less straightforward dog before, and would like to give Cooper a chance, then please contact Kerri on 07 54329115 or 0432 241 054


Chewie and Mae --- (posted 30/5/2017) ---

Major changes in family cirumstances have resulted in Chewie and Mae needing to find a new home. They are a happy pair of littermates who love all people and activity, and yet are able to settle as indoor layabouts, chilling out with the family too. They are in excellent health. They are highly obedient, although they've not been formally trained. The pair are not well socilaised with other dogs. However, they can become very friendly with other dogs when they get to know them, and their current best chums are a pair of groodles. Some positive re-inforcement when meeting new dogs will probably improve their enthusiasm for meeting more different dogs. Both are desexed. For more info on the pair please contact Juliette: julietteguthrie@hotmail.com or phone 0434 039 304


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

Milo is a gorgeous boy who has had a bad experience being rehomed, at 2 years old, and he is now hoping for a home that has some experience with BCs. Milo is currently in a shelter, and he isn't very settled there. Milo is friendly with people, and OK with other dogs. He is inexperienced with small children. Milo's initial home wanted him for a working dog, but his working instinct is apparently not strong enough for this vocation. Milo is desexed, and just looking for a home that wants a smart, active dog. For more info on Milo please contact Julie on 0421 203 619.


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


Gypsy --- (posted 15/6/2017) ---

Gypsy is a very beautiful girl who needs a new home because she is too much to handle in a home that has youngsters as well. Gyspy is an anxious girl and she needs a home that is prepared to take on a dog who will require more than the usual amount of effort. The combination of her anxiety and not getting enough to do at the moment is resulting in destructive behaviour which needs to be managed. Acceptable alternative outlets needs to be found. In the right home she will have a lot to offer, as she is a sweet and intelligent girl. A trial in her new home is an option. For more infomration please contact Shay on 0406 180 356


Maisy --- (posted 19/6/2017) ---

Maisy's family are looking for the very best home for her. She is a sweet short coated girl who is good with people, other dogs, cats, horses and chickens (free range). Maisy is currently living on a property with two other BCs. They spend all day playing together - in fact they are not really interested in interacting with their family, they are so caught up in their pack. Maisy is not afraid of thunder or loud noises. She is housetrained, although she is used to sleeping in the garage. A family with a bit of space, and a plan to do active things with their dogs will be Maisy's ideal new home. For more info on Maisy please contact Nicole at nicolem737@gmail.com


Missy --- (posted 19/6/2017) ---

Missy was rehomed 12 months ago, as she was living with a family in an apartment. She is a gorgeous girl, but her lack of training in her early years has created a young BC girl who doesn't know how to be quiet in her own company, and so she finds destructive things to do including digging holes. She also doesn't walk well on lead. Her current family want to find a home who understands BCs and has the time to put into managing and modifying her behaviour. Missy has a lovely nature, and gets on well with other dogs and is unphased by children. For more information on Missy please contact Gail on 0429 999 213
