Val

Available for Adoption

  • 2-year-old border collie/shepherd mix
  • Female
  • Wake Forest, N.C.

Val is a gorgeous, sweet dog who needs an experienced herding-dog owner. She has a strong herding instinct and loves to herd the other dogs in her foster home as well as her human. Val is very smart and learning fast, mastering basic commands with ease. Her leash manners are fair and she’s quickly learning those, too. She is a high-energy dog who thrives with human and canine interaction. Val gets along very well with the other dogs in her foster’s home, large and small, male and female. She is interested in making friends and playing! Val would do best in a home without small children or very elderly adults as she will herd them. She has not been exposed to cats yet but her foster mom thinks her herding instincts may get her scratched up at first. Her legs are like springs, too, so a 6-ft high fenced yard would be best so she can get some zoomies in and play with her balls and frisbee. She would likely be a fantastic agility dog and would certainly relish an active owner who jogs or hikes as well. This girl just wants to have fun and be loved! Val is spayed, heart-worm negative, up-to-date on all vaccines, and ready for a forever home where she will be loved and cared for the rest of her life.

She was surrendered by her owner to a rural county shelter and rescued by Paws for Life NC rescue in April 2022. Reason for surrender by owner unknown – the information passed on by the shelter stated the owners were moving and no longer could take care of her.

Val is located in Wake Forest, North Carolina. For more information, reach out to Shelby at dogteam@pawsforlifenc.com

Panda

Available for Adoption

  • 2-year-old border collie mix
  • Female
  • Chandler, Arizona

“We have had Panda since she was 8 weeks old. She has always been anxious and has never gotten along great with our Lab, who is almost 5. She is very loyal, sweet, loves to take a shower and be brushed and groomed. Loves toys, chewing them up, taking them in and out of the house. She would be an excellent companion to someone that knows the breed..

“She loves to run and play, but can also sit and stare at a door for hours if she thinks there is a cat behind it.”

Larry

Available for Adoption

  • 1-year-old border collie mix
  • Neutered male
  • Raleigh, North Carolina
  • 43 pounds

“Meet Larry, a 43-pound, 1-year-old Border Collie mix. Larry is a super sweet boy. He is house-trained, active but not hyper and good with most other dogs (cats unknown). Larry is heart-worm negative, microchipped, and neutered. His vaccinations are up to date. Larry sleeps quietly through the night in a crate, does well with a bath, and is great with car rides.

“Larry is a smart little guy, who enjoys to learning new tricks, he knows sit, lay down, leave it, drop, shake, high five, and wait. He also enjoys scent games and playing with other dogs. He is an affectionate cuddler who wants to be with his people and really likes when they are all together. Larry enjoys a hike, but also enjoys hanging in the house near his people. He will sleep by you while you work with a couple of short potty breaks.

“Larry has had a bit of a bumpy start at life, he was adopted from a rescue, but shortly after, he was surrendered due to volatility in the adopter’s home. He has since been in a foster home. Larry is building his confidence every day and has grown exponentially. He is learning to trust through stability and compassionate interactions. As with many young dogs in COVID, Larry has not had many opportunities for socialization and will need gradual introductions with new people and activities.

“Larry is a gentle boy that will flourish in a predictable, stable environment. He needs an experienced pet owner who can provide a consistent routine, praise, boundaries, and affection.

“We are asking for Veterinary reference and a $200 adoption fee, the fee can be escrowed for training, with receipts.

Guppy

Available for Adoption

  • 1-year-old Border Collie mix
  • female
  • Salisbury, North Carolina

“Guppy is a super sweet, kind, and loving little girl. Gets along with everyone, loves to play and chew on treat-stuffed toys. She is crate trained and house-trained, walks great on a leash, is learning her basic commands and tricks. She loves to play with toys in the house, wrestle with her buddies, or cuddle on the couch. Her strong hound nature makes her fairly serious about ‘hunting’ bugs, birds, squirrels and small animals outside, so she requires supervision outside and a securely fenced yard. She is up to date on her shots, is spayed, and is around 1 year old.

“Guppy is a silly goof-ball, but is independent and adventurous, will bark at intruders, but absolutely loves people and dogs. She’s still somewhat puppy-like but has some good manners and some training now. She has a lot of hound or terrier-type personality (most likely she is a Feist/BC mix) in addition to some of the Border Collie-type traits. She will likely chase cats, but could maybe be trained or desensitized to this, depending on the cats.

“She has moderate energy, and could run/play for hours outside, or hang out inside when it’s raining just as easily. She would be great with someone that likes to hike and/or has some time to spend with her daily. She would probably be amazing at Scent-Work (nose work), or Barn Hunt competition.

“She would not be suitable as an off-leash dog (maybe after extensive training), nor being left outside for long periods as she will dig out and go ‘hunting’ on her own. She has a habit of picking up and eating anything organic that she can find – bugs, hairballs, leaves, etc., and will chew on non-edible things also, like toy stuffing, wire, plastic pieces, etc., so she must be watched and/or kept from random things getting into her mouth, as we don’t know if she would actually swallow anything dangerous. We’re working on the “drop it” command with good success, but the drive to eat anything she can find is strong. For these reasons, we think an experienced dog owner would be required for this wonderful, silly little girl.

“In order to become Guppy’s new family, an adoption application and home visit will be a requirement, in addition to the adoption fee of $250 (which will be donated to one of the great rescue organizations in the area).”

Riley

Available for Adoption

  • 3.5-year-old Border Collie
  • Male
  • Brookhaven, Georgia (metro Atlanta)

“Riley is a 3.5-year-old Border Collie with white hair and brown spots. When I rescued him in 2017, he was underweight and undeniably came from an abusive household. I’ve worked intensely with him, beginning from the basics of learning the feeling on love where he used to cower when we tried to pet him. He has come such a long way, and now understands most commands (sit, stay, lay down, go to your crate, etc.) but still gets overly excited when trying to greet people. Riley loves his crate and is completely house-trained. When he’s running in the backyard and chasing the squirrels in the trees, there’s nothing but pure joy on his face. We have two other dogs who Riley gets along with great, but they are smaller than him so his idea of playing can come off as overbearing, and unfortunately, he is just too big for our household.”

“Riley would thrive in a home where he could run outside (fenced in) and have a routine both physically and mentally (training). He loves his people, is obedient and is a great protector but he does not have experience around young children so I’m not sure how he would do with kids or their toys around and would be uncomfortable saying differently. I think the ideal owner that would either be a runner and could exercise with him, or someone who would be able to dedicate time each day to really play with him at a park or in the backyard. All he wants is to be loved and it breaks my heart that we can’t give him the attention he needs and deserves. There’s nothing I want more than to see Riley be rehoused in a happy household and never feel abandonment.”
