Zander is a sweet 4 year old border collie mix that came to the shelter as a stray. He is very playful (loves to play fetch!) and will make a wonderful companion to an active family. Agility anyone? We think, however, that he would do best in a home without other dogs, cats and small children. He is located in Syracuse, NY. To adopt this good boy, please visit the CNY SPCA website at


Lila needs a home. She’s an English Setter/Border Collie mix, 1 yr old, 45 lbs, spayed, shots up to date, heart worm and flea free. She needs a home with a young, playful dog or dogs who can keep up with her. She loves to play. She’s fine with cats but is very rowdy so it would have to be a dog savvy cat who will get out of her way. She loves to play in the water but is oblivious to our pool and has fallen in. I’ve seen zero food aggression. She’s good with people but needs someone who knows how to take control with positive reinforcement. She knows sit, down, leave it and scoot with treats for rewards. She’s extremely smart. Please message Stephanie Ambrose Fournier.


Tulip (“Tuli”) is a very affectionate, smart, silly and beautiful female 7 month old lab border collie mix rescue.   I took her in temporarily after her 1st adoptive owner, a single mom, couldn’t fulfill her needs. 

Like all border collie/mixes, Tulip needs A LOT  of daily exercise, playtime and mental stimulation (loves learning)!   As hyper as she is, she’ll plunk her 47 pound self on my lap. We have wonderful, 3-4 mile daily walks and dog park visits. She is very friendly towards all people, and most (all?) dogs. Other hobbies: car rides, Tractor Supply shopping, sprinklers/hoses/rain, running really fast. Her latest game is to pounce on and swat crab apples!   And, run with a box of Kleenex before bedtime.


Jack is available for adoption to the right home. Very specific criteria must be met and is noted below. Please read the entire post. There will be NO wavering on the listed criteria. He is NOT for the first time dog owner, nor anyone who doesn’t have experience with herding breed dogs and behavior modification.

Jack has been bounced around way too much and must go to his forever home. He is 2 years old (DOB 1/31/19), is approximately 45 pounds and 22+ inches at the withers. UTD on shots and is neutered. He was found tied up to a light pole in NYC. Thereafter, he was taken in by an all breed rescue. They had good intentions, but they were way in over their head with his herding quirks. Jack then came to ECHO.
