Kentucky Border Collie Dogs for Adoption

Urgent: This animal could be euthanized if not adopted soon.

Animal ID: 15-03-31-00237Bruiser (male)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    Border Collier/mutt mix. He is generally sweet but is aggressive to those coming into 'his' territory (delivery people, yard treatment, etc). He is much more docile inside. He would probably be ok in a fenced yard where he is contained and he knows what his territory is. At present, he is free to roam and has decided that the next door neighbor is in 'his' territory. He plays fine with everyone else in the neighborhood, including larger children and other dogs. Would not recommend with toddlers or small children, not because of aggressiveness but because of his size and strength.

Animal ID: 15-03-30-00394Leah Rosebud (female)

Border Collie    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Leah is a lovable, very intelligent Border Collie with a high-level instinct to WORK. She is loyal, clean, house-trained (she trained herself with our verbal encouragement) and crate-trained. She will self-crate. She has a high desire to please us. However, she also has a strong natural INSTINCT to HERD. She years to WORK. We must contain her in the house and fenced yard because she will HERD cars and bicycles and children if she gets loose. She does not favor leash-walking. Leah is 'intuitive.' She is territorial and protective. She can intimidate and scare adults and children. And, she will rough-play with other dogs if given the ... (Read More)opportunity. This is a problem in out neighborhood because the dogs are 'designer' dogs and smaller than she is. Some are geriatric. The owners, our neighbors and feinds and family, do not understand nor appreciate her special qualities. They are impatient with her and have clearly told us that she does not belong in the neighborhood. We fenced in the back yard to give her a place to play. She goes in and out the dog door at will. She has had Training at Pet Smart (3 levels) and is eligible to take Advanced Training. I had intended to go through agility training with her. However, we are grandparents - and have many children running in and our of the house. This makes for opportunities for Leah to get loose (and then her wild HERDING INSTINCT kicks in). Also, the children are inconsistent in their play with her - and some are afraid of her. Some adults and parents also are afraid of her - and not supportive. Leah has been consistently loved and cared for since we adopted her from a private breeder last year in March. She was about 6-7 months old and had NOT been socialized at that point. She may have been neglected due to a congenital eye-defect that made 'unsellable' and not breedable. We had her neutered immediately and she has been well-treated and loved ever since. She is from a littler of 8 where 2 of the Border Collies had a Congenital Eye defect. The vets and we do not think she is blind in that eye. Her hearing instincts are sharp and keen. She is alert immediately when she hears a noise that catches her attention. She loves to look up and chase birds and bats out flying out back. We back up to a large park and creek - and she has enjoyed playing in it. However, we have had to limit that since she will run off and then her WORKING/HERDING INSTINCT takes over. After a while, she comes straight home. However, while 'working' she only looks to us for cues and keeps up her 'job'. This upsets the neighbors. We are careful to limit her to the house and backyard, accordingly - for her safety and everyone else's. She had all her shots this week and is healthy. The Vets who have seen her for routine medical care are concerned about her in a neighborhood with children. As a Border Collie, she will nip at heels. She has NOT done that for awhile though. We have not given her the opportunity - and have positively redirected her. She is eager to please - both me (her favorite #1 person) and my wife (her daily companion). She is a great companion. A job on a farm would give her an outlet for her energy and work ethic - and she will rest beautifully then. She likes her crate and self-crates herself both willingly and on cue. Her crate, bed, and toys will go with her. It will break out hearts to be without her - but when she goes to the right environment and owner, we will know it is in her best interests. She is not getting to use her skills and live up to her potential here in a suburban Fayette County neighborhood. This is a beloved, talented, cherished dog. We are amazed at her skills and potential. We are also realistic about the INSTINCT inbred into her to herd and work. She NEEDS a rural setting farm and WORK with an owner experienced with working dogs. Her litter-mates sold for $1,000 apiece. For the right owner, Leah could be a true blessing and a loyal and true, dedicated long-time working companion. Please feel free to call us. We will be totally honest - and will take her back if she does not work out. We are open to her having a 'home visit' since we are understanding and know that adopting a pet is a long-term commitment as well as an important addition to a family.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Border Collie in Kentucky
    Border Collie Dogs can make good pets in Kentucky if they match your IifestyIe. Border Collies are extremely intelligent, faithful dogs who live to please their masters. Border Collies need lots of attention and praise. They respond to high level obedience training and make excellent Frisbee dogs and farm workers. Border Collies do well in large yards or with acreage and they need a job to do. If a Border Collie becomes bored, he will find his own job to do and it may not be the owner's idea of work. Border Collies do well with older children and other dogs, and some Border Collies can coexist with cats. However, it depends on the dog, and generally Border Collies should not be trusted with non-canine pets.
