Border Collies in Rescue

We have always been huge supporters of rescue and animal adoption. We encourage everyone to seek out a dog or puppy from a rescue group or shelter before contacting breeders. Because of the Border Collie's natural herding instinct, extreme intelligence and high activity level it doesn't take long before an inexperienced, unprepared family or owner realizes they are in over their head. For this reason there are hundreds of Border Collies in rescues and shelters across North America. Please read the following links to learn exactly what the reasons are that most Border Collies wind up in rescue.
