Bella beach collage

Hope you’re doing well!!  Bella had her first trip to the beach and it was a camping on the beach trip.  We got there Friday and left Sunday.  She did great!  She loved every minute, from chasing the foam blowing off the ocean in the wind and watching people play catch with a football.   She also had her first homemade ice cream this week.  We make our own ice cream and give it to them as a nice summer treat. She loved it.  All is going well, we couldn’t be happier with her :). She’s having a blast and so are we!

I’ve Been Adopted

China headshot

China is a stunningly beautiful, intelligent, and affectionate 10 month old border collie who missed out on the early socialization and training she needed.  She is eager to please, learns quickly, is full of amazing potential.  She received no interaction in  early puppy days, and was purchased from the  breeder by a couple with excellent intentions but a challenging environment for a young border collie.  She spent most of her time in an outdoor pen with two large older dogs, until one dog took a dislike to her. The owner brought her inside but the landlord objected.

Rio headshot

Rio is a sweet older border collie who is looking for a very special family to adopt him. We estimate he is 10 years old.  Rio loves people of all ages (children included) and gets along well with other dogs. He enjoys walks, is good on leash and likes to explore the fenced-in yard in his foster home. He is moderately active and does not require nearly as much exercise as some younger border collies. He is generally very content just spending time near his humans on his favorite dog bed.
