Meet Smokey! He is the one of most sweetest, adorable, loving puppies you would ever want to lay your eyes on. He likes to be hugged, held and loves to rest in your lap when you let him. He is your typical puppy that likes to play with balls and toys while rawhide is becoming his favorite. He enjoys sniffing around outdoors and he likes to go for walks on his leash. He is a happy, kind companion that wants to share your love. He will entertain you while he plays. He has a high curiosity for people and sounds and he seems to say "pet me please" upon greeting while maintaining his peaceful demeanor. He is fine with other dogs, cats are unknown although he seems to have a keen interest in squirrels. At this time, he needs to be on a leash or in a back yard with a fence.
Being up-to-date on all of his vaccinations, he would make a perfect addition to your home if you are looking for a dog who wants to adore you and be loved in return. He will definitely be a participating member of your family! Hang a string of bells on your doorknob because he is learning to ring them to let you know he wants to go out!
Smokey will not be adopted to a home with an invisible fencing system or any other shock type training system.
Cappi was malnourished as a puppy and it resulted in her small stature. When we took her to the vet we thought she was only a month or two old. She weighed in at a whopping 15 pounds and through her tooth progression it was discovered that she was around 5 months old! What she lacks in size she more than makes up in heart. If you are looking to adopt a cuddle bunny then look no further. This little puppy is full of affection and loves to be with her people.
She is being fostered with 3 other "big" dogs that are twice her size which is how she earned her name "Cappi". She doesn't let her pint size stop her from stealing antlers, playing fierce games of tug-o-war, and getting rough and tumble in games of chase. She is not afraid to roll over and "tap out" if the games get too intense.
Cappi is surprisingly calm and exceptionally well behaved for a puppy. While she needs her exercise and play, she is just as content to sleep in your lap. Cappi is an absolute pleasure to be around. She's such a doll baby.
CBCR Foster Zola - Adopted in October 2015
Zola (formerly Quinn) was found in Cumberland County with her sister, Cappi and brother, Smokey. She was only in the shelter for a few days until she was rescued by CBCR. We adopted Zola two months ago and she has been a joy and one of the sweetest dogs we have ever met. The adoption process with Carolina Border Collie Rescue was seamless. All we had to do was complete an application, home visit, vet check and within a few weeks, we were able to adopt sweet Zola. When we first met her, she was somewhat nervous, yet very calm. Due to the fact that she was a stray and was malnourished, it took her awhile to warm up to things. At first, she was scared of people, other dogs and cars, but after just a month we have seen so much improvement in her confidence. She is walking better on a leash, isn't scared of other people, loves to play with dogs and is now a ball of energy. Zola is already potty-trained and is great about going in her crate at night. She is best friends with our cat, Pistachio and absolutely loves to eat, especially cheese and peanut butter. She is also very fond of her hedgehog toy!
