Carolina Border Collie Rescue
is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the rescue and adoption
of abandoned, neglected and mistreated border collies in the state of North Carolina.
Exciting news at CBCR! On April the 5th our foster dog Karris gave birth to 5 healthy puppies, 2 girls and 3 boys. The mom appears to be full blooded Border Collie and has the sweetest disposition you could ask for in a companion. She is loving, playful and has done everything in her power to fit into her foster family’s household. She has never had an accident in the house, stays away from dogs she’s unsure of and loves to be around children, men and women equally. With such a great mom those puppies surely gonna make some awesome companions. We don’t know who the father is or his breeding, so we are advertising the puppies as Border Collie mixes.
They will be ready for their new homes at the end of June. Karris herself is not available.
We are no longer accepting applications for the puppies.
I’ve Been Adopted
Newton (formerly Ruddy) is a 6-month-old neutered Border Collie mix. Newton is up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and is already microchipped. He is good with cats, other dogs, children and super friendly towards people. Newton was pulled from a shelter so we don’t have any background information on him. We do know that we loves car rides and to constantly be with his humans. Newton is very cuddly and loves to lay and snuggle with you. He also loves to chew on nylon bones and play with toys but he won’t bring toys back if your playing fetch. For being a puppy Newton is pretty well behaved. He is already mostly house trained and crate trained. He doesn’t stay in his crate anymore because he can be trusted to be lose free in my house without destroying anything BUT every single dog toy will be removed from the toy basket and will be laid strategically all around the house when I get home. This puppy really is a catch and will likely be adopted to an applicant who has already applied and is waiting for a puppy.

I’ve Been Adopted
Meet Champ. A smooth coat Border Collie, believed to be purebred. Approximately 2-3 years old. Kid tested (6 and 8 year olds) and cat approved. He is a true cuddle bug and not overly high energy like most Border Collies. He has limitations, but he excels at most typical pet needs. He hasn’t met anyone he didn’t like. Other dogs are ok, but he is not a pushover. He does defend himself. Champ does have a disability in that he is mostly blind. 100% in his right eye, and possibly 80% or more in his left. He is able to see shapes, distinguish light and dark and sees movement. It is degenerative, and eventually he will be 100% blind. He will need a home with a fenced-in yard.
He knows basic commands, sit, stay, down, wait and will shake paws. He takes treats nicely and has good manners. He is also crate trained and housebroken, although his first day he did try to mark, but was discovered to be unneutered. After scolding, he has taken his business out each time.
