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.
Last July 30th I picked Katy up in Statesville, NC and Sunday we celebrated our one year anniversary and Katy’s birthday since we don’t really know. Katy has come such a long way. Katy is affectionate, sweet beyond words and a very funny girl. I love her more each day. I wanted to send a recent pic or two.
Katy has gained about 3.5 pounds but is lean and active. In the cool mountain air her coat is heavier and she is as soft as velvet. Katy has been pure joy 😊
Thank you CBCR.
I’ve Been Adopted
Fisher was recently instinct tested on sheep. He showed a lot of potential. He demonstrated his willingness to please as well as his drive. Due to his recent FHO surgery, he was only allowed in the ring for a short length of time. He needs to regain his muscle strength and physical endurance before doing any herding. He would do best in an home where he would be able to use his natural drive and instinct. If his forever home is near Pittsboro, NC, we can potentially arrange for some herding lessons after his hip strength has returned.
Fisher is a one to two year old Border Collie. He is neutered, microchipped and up to date on all shots. Fisher is house broke and good in his kennel. He is also starting to ring the bells I have at the door when he needs to go potty.

Harper is just over a year old and up to date on vaccines, microchipped and neutered. He is pureblooded or very close to it so he acts like a typical very high energy BC. He loves to run and play with other dogs. He will get pretty rough when he is playing and tends to agitate other dogs for fun like it’s a game. It will be best for Harper to not go into a home with an older dog that doesn’t do well with his puppy like behavior. He is also a big herder of other dogs. He will run around them in circles and will also try to steal toys away when you’re playing fetch. He is a crazy good fetcher when he is by himself. He is learning to play Frisbee and loves a game of tug of war. He does play-growl during tug of war but all it is to him is play. He is unerring in snagging a ball or toy lobbed into the air.
