Eva is a 5 year old, spayed female Border Collie. She will only be re-homed to the very best situation for her and is not in need of immediate placement. My ideal home for Eva would be a single person or couple without children or other pets (minimal chaos in the home). Eva wants to be an only dog and would like to have a large fenced yard and to go on regular hikes and swims. She needs a person that has a lot of herding dog experience that gets border collie quirks and that knows how to handle a dog that is nervous and potentially aggressive towards other dogs. If this describes your situation, please read all of the following information before contacting me.

Maisy Maude

Maisy Maude is a three year old border collie/black lab mix. Her birthday is August 15th, 2019. She came from a dairy farm in Bern, NY. Maisy loves her green ball more than anything in the world and looks forward to playing fetch after a long day. She is extremely intelligent and often tries to mimic words spoken to her. Maisy is a busy body and would benefit from a household with lots of tasks to keep her busy. She has never been aggressive, but gets very anxious around strangers. My partner and I work full time and have a baby on the way. We have consistently struggled to provide her with the appropriate environment that her high-energy working breed needs. Please help our Maisy find the forever home she deserves.


Finlay is a sweet tempered velcro dog. He loves his people and is happiest when he can relax nearby his human. He loves hiking and does need more exercise than the average dog but is mellower than the average border collie. He hikes off leash and never wanders far from his hiking buddies. When he meets strangers off leash he’ll bark and then come back toward you to step off the trail and let others pass.

Finlay came from a rescue out of Tennessee where he and his siblings had been found orphaned after their mother was hit by a car almost 8 years ago. No one is sure of his breed but his vet, who has and loves border collies, feels that his behaviors and temperament are consistent with a border collie type.
