Available Dogs

Available dogs are vetted and up-to-date on all vaccines. We encourage you to select your new companion by considering each dog’s individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on a certain look and feel. We always highly recommend putting in an application and getting approved before you see a dog and fall in love!

Hello There! The name is Jet (Formerly known as ‘J-T’, from my shelter days).

I am a lean, neutered, bouncy, approximately 2yo, 37lb border collie mix. My fosters at least say i am an Honorary Border Collie because of my coloring, tail floof and ears.

I am highly food motivated and am quick to learn. I am a huge snuggler and crave attention from my people.

My foster dad believes I’d be great for a pre-teen to grow old with and learn new tricks!

I will quickly become a velcro dog to my person. My attachment is part of my personality, I’ve been abandoned a lot in my short lifetime and I have separation anxiety in the form of some excessive drooling. I am being managed with Fluoxetine and my foster parents have seen a drastic improvement with my anxiety since.

Though I know my kennel is a safe space and will readily go in, I can quickly make it a swamp too. Just remember to come back for me, okay?

My foster parents think i would be best as the only dog in the home, but with the right experience, may get along fine with another dog around my size. Its a process sometimes but I get along well enough with my foster siblings. I just need time to adjust to change and do it gradually and if you are someone experienced with this, It may just work!

Because of my history of abandonment, I do some resource guarding that will need to continued to be worked with in my future home. Cats are definitely a no go though, as well as small dogs - They just look tasty!

Other than that, I am known for getting some serious air time. Mom keeps saying I am a “Tigger”, with springs in my legs? I still haven’t figured out what that is or that I can go over things, including the baby gates in my house.

I can certainly jump to your level though!

All i am saying is, just be patient with me and you’ll see what my foster parents see in me! I have a lot of potential!

Hi my name is Teddy and I am ready to find my forever family.

I’m full of fun loving energy and adore long walks through the neighborhood and playing ball in the backyard.  (I’ll help you keep that exercise resolution you made!)

I enjoy roughhousing with my foster brother and sister, so an energetic canine sibling would be just grand.

I have not been officially cat tested, but enjoy barking at and pulling on the leash to chase the cats I see on my daily walks.

Being that I am still a puppy at a year old and 40 pounds, I will do best with kids over 10, although I do fine with tiny humans as young as a year old for short periods of time.

I am 100% potty trained, vetted and crate trained. Although I can be vocal in the crate, I don't play Houdini and make great escapes.

I am being fostered in Amarillo but can travel to my new family. I am healthy, neutered, and fully vaccinated.

Are you a homebody (or two) looking for a companion who is easy to exercise without leaving your fenced yard and a wonderfully entertaining friend?

That’s ME!

I’m Sydney Skittle-butt. I’m a small girl (27 lbs), a bit over a year old, spayed, vaccinated BC/Mini Aussie mix.

I promise to make you smile many times a day.

I get my exercise needs playing fetch with tennis balls, so going on endless walks or playing on agility equipment is not required (though it sounds like fun!).

I’m a good fit for older adults who have a pretty settled routine! I like training exercises (treats!) and learn fast!

I sleep deeply through the night in my comfy crate and don’t mind spending a bit of time there during the day if you have to run errands (like getting me new tennis balls!) I have a busy mind which results  in a bit of generalized anxiety (but NOT separation anxiety!) that is currently being managed with medication once a day.

With time and a calm environment, I may be able to reduce or eliminate the medication.

As of now I’m a happier, calmer dog on the medication. Because of this generalized anxiety, I can be unpredictable with dogs and would not be an appropriate pet for children or apartment living.

I am smart and sensitive, will follow you everywhere, look to you for guidance and comfort (and tennis balls).

I truly want to please you but within the boundaries of my particular need to stay calm.

I am expressive, have the cutest wiggle butt you’ve EVER seen, and if you love to laugh out loud, I’m your girl! I am currently in the DFW area and ready to be adopted!

Honey is a very active girl that would be a good candidate for agility or fly ball.

Honey is around 2.5 yrs old, around 30 lbs.

She will need to go to a home where she can be exercised often & given plenty of play time.

Once she has gotten some energy out, she does enjoy cuddling or sitting on your lap & watching a movie. She absolutely loves kids.

She is picky about other dogs, nice when visiting and playing so long as there are no toys involved. Honey will not share her toys with anyone.  She will gladly exchange toys and food when humans involved but not with other dogs.

Honey LOVES to swim!  She gladly gets in the pool!

She is crate trained and housebroken.  She has house manners although she does like to nap on the couch and occasionally puts a paw on a counter but redirects easily.

She is a bit shy at first but warms up quickly.  Honey is registered with the American Border Collie Association & comes with a plaque showing her lineage.

Meet Estee, the eternal puppy in a senior border collie's body!
Estee is about 9 yrs old, under 30 lbs.
Estee love for toys and her people knows no bounds.
Rescued from a hoarding situation, she's now living her best life, spreading joy and wagging tails wherever she goes.
Estee playful spirit and endless energy prove that age is just a number when it comes to having fun!
When she's not carrying or "de-stuffing" her toys, you can find Estee enjoying a cozy nap or cuddled up with her favorite humans, perhaps listening to Taylor Swift's "No Body, No Crime," lamenting the loss of her well-loved toys.

Wrigley is the neighborhood flirt who always wants to be the center of your world.

He is always on the hunt for cuddles and snuggles. He is looking for his lifetime companion instead of wandering the streets where he was found.

At six months old, this bundle of energy probably needs another dog to wrestle with unless you have kids and they will do as well.

With the determination of a corgi and the energy of a border collie, probably a fenced yard would be best.

He mastered the doggie door in about 10 minutes at five months.  He’ll let you know when he wants something such as food or a toy by his deep voice.

He is a little rough around the edges – still in puppy stage and thinks everything belongs to him.

He is built with short legs and soft fur and a very expressive face. He weighs about 45 pounds and likes his food and everyone else’s food as well.  Probably won’t grow much taller.

He will sit and walks well on a leash but is lacking most other skills. He sleeps in his kennel at night and sometimes goes in the kennel during the day to rest.

Wrigley will be a true best friend and won’t leave your sight ...even in the bathroom. Never met a stranger and loves to meet other dogs. Not cat tested.

If you like cuteness and can be in charge, let me know. I am available for the right family.

Hello, my name is Harley!
I will be available for adoption the beginning of April 2024.
I am a four month old beautiful border collie mix.   I weigh 12 pounds and am growing fast.
My foster mom says I’m perfect. I love to play and run!  I play well with my sister and my foster mom’s big dogs.
I also play well with kids and love to cuddle and get kisses. I enjoy being outside playing with my toys and balls.
When I’m inside my foster mom has lots of toys and chew bones that keep me occupied. I am doing very well at potty training. I am great in the crate and sleep through the night! I am learning commands and am so smart.
Will you be my new lucky forever home? I am being fostered in Austin.
Aloof doesn’t even begin to explain it!
Meet Miro - wonderdog and wonderful dog 🐕.
Miro is a 2-3 year old purebred Aussie. And no, he isn’t ignoring you - he’s just a little extra special and deaf 🧏
Miro is the result of some bad breeding but that doesn’t mean he’s a bad dog, he’s the sweetest ball of energy you’ll ever meet!
Miro would love to find a home where he is either an only dog or with a dog who is just as playful as he is. Miro doesn’t understand the largeness of his bark and when he gets excited with other dogs he can be quite chatty!
Miro is house trained, crate trained and is doing well on a harness vs a leash.
Miro just needs someone willing to look past the fact he’s deaf and realize he’s a brilliant dog who wants his own brilliant home!!
 They don't come any cuter than Miss Mabel!
This 4 month old female Border Collie mix will absolutely melt your heart.
Currently weighing 17 lbs.

She's young so she's learning a lot right now, but she is a quick and willing student.

She sleeps great in a crate and is working on potty training. She knows sit and stay.

We have 5 other dogs who Mabel enjoys playing with. She has a serene soul, is not much of a barker, and can, of course, turn the puppy spunk on after her nap. 🙂

Mabel is going to be a blessing to her furever family!

Goose - 981: Pending

"BCRR's TURN N BURN" Call Name: GOOSE is, just like his name, an all action boy.

He is a 45lb, 2 year old healthy, neutered male.  He loves to go and do just about anything with you and bonds easily with new handlers.

Although he is energentic, he does have an off switch and his basic needs can be met with a couple acitvities a day. He enjoys playing with other dogs, going on walks, playing ball or frisbee and is obsessed with swimming.

He is good with cats, other dogs of various sizes, chickens, and kids! He is house trained, rides well in the car and crates very nicely.

He enjoys his crate, but would prefer to sleep on the bed with you overnight! He is not a velcro dog, but likes to snuggle and be close, especially at night.

Goose knows sit, down, stay, say hi, and "be sad." He is a generally very happy boy and is adaptable to new home environments.

Goose already has a Junior Dock Diving title, he shows alot of promise as a disc dog, and has started agility foundations (just need to finish up training his weaves!).  He will need to continue working through arrousal issues at competitions to be successful.

Now the "work in progress" part: Goose needs a firm handler to teach him boundries and enforce rules. He has a desire to learn and is easy to train, but is still working through some behavior issues.

He tests out the rules in new environments and without consistent and clear boundries he will run all over his owner (counter surfing, getting into trash, lunging/pulling on the leash, high pitched excited barking, fence running/fighting, jumping on others, etc). He has made MAJOR gains in his behavior in a short time. Most of his issues stem from over arrousal and lack of activity.

Keeping him busy and continuing drills that require him to use self-control will definitely help these issues. His new owner must be commited to behavioral training. Inconsistency will set his progress back.

Goose's owner passed away this spring, but he has been in the care of her friends for several months while she was ill. She was my dear friend and a BCRR volunteer.

He is a beautiful dog with many good qualities, but will need a home that's a good fit for him. I look forward to talking to anyone that might be interested.

His ideal home has a playmate or very active owner, large FENCED  yard (recall is a work in progress), and most importantly an owner that's committed to continuing his training.

He'd love it if his owner worked from home part of the time - he hangs out with me in my office really nicely. He loves children, but due to his jumping, older kids might be best.

Meet Dottie! She is a bundle of sweetness and charm! Dottie is 3 years old and weighs about 65 lb. She is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations and preventive medications. She has a super chill personality and is looking to live a simple life with her fur-ever family

 

She would love a family who has:
🐕 a yard where she can run, play, and look for squirrels 😉
🛋️ a couch where she can snuggle with her fur-ever people (her favorite time)
🛏️ a dog bed for when she wants her space
🎾 toys to keep her entertained
But, most importantly, she just wants people she can call her own!

Dottie had a rough start; she was surrendered while pregnant and unfortunately lost her babies. But, her personality blossomed over the past couple of months, filled with love and happy energy, making her the perfect family dog. She is housebroken, crate-trained, and knows commands like "sit," "paw," "touch," and "wait," and she's ready to learn more. Don’t be fooled by her cute face. She is super smart!

Dottie adores children but is unfamiliar with cats and can be selective with other dogs. She prefers calm dogs that don’t overly invade her space, but she will give lots of body language signs when a dog is too much for her.

One of the new things for her was walking on a leash. As a herding breed, she has a natural inclination to chase. However, she has made great progress and no longer chases every moving thing. Squirrels, however, are too fun to resist playing with 🙂 She is learning not to become overstimulated and walks pretty well in less busy areas with a longer leash.

Introducing Wyjo (Y-Joe), the resilient puppy with a heart full of love and a spirit that won't quit.

Despite facing the challenges of parvo, Wyjo has fought bravely and emerged stronger than ever, ready to embrace life to the fullest.

This adorable bundle of fur is now on the lookout for a forever home filled with warmth, understanding, and plenty of room to play!

With a sharp mind and boundless energy typical of a Border Collie, Wyjo is seeking a home that understands their breed's unique needs and is committed to providing the mental and physical stimulation they crave.

Patience and kindness are essential qualities, as Wyjo is figuring out life and needs a gentle hand to help raise him into the bestest boy ever!

He is now around 3 months old and UTD on appropriately aged vaccines. Wyjo is not neutered and any interested family's will need to consider this cost post adoption. He is currently located in DFW.

He is interested but not aggressive towards cats, timid but playful with big dogs and enjoys human company! He is doing well with crate training when given frequent breaks but you must remember he is just a puppy!

Are you ready to add a bundle of black and white joy to your family?
Holiday's heart is as big as her enthusiasm for lounging in the sunshine and walking on a leash by your side.
With her wagging tail and bright eyes, she charms everyone she meets. One of Holiday's most endearing traits is her tendency to howl with excitement!
At 6 years young, Holiday has mastered the art of companionship. She's past the puppy stage but still has plenty of energy and love to share.
She is independent but affectionate and cuddly.
Holiday is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, and weighs about 48 lbs. No health issues to date.
If you're searching for a furry companion who emobdies love, charm, and a zest for life, Holiday is your girl. 
Dug is a sweet, loving, cuddle bug!
He is a healthy, neutered, vaccinated 47 lb boy, between 5-6 yrs old.
He is being rehomed due to anxiety he began to exhibit around owner's one year old.
Dug loves to play and he plays well with other dogs. He is a big fan of frisbee, tug, chasing the remote control car, and running alongside us when we rollerblade.
He loves being in the car and going on adventures.
He's incredibly friendly and gives the best cuddles and snuggles.
He walks well on a leash, is house trained (and doggy-door trained), he does well getting his nails trimmed and dremmeled, and is patient when he gets a bath.
He loves to be lazy on the couch just as much as he loves to play.
Dug does show some signs of anxiety in new environments so introductions need to be slow and calm, and he will need plenty of adjustment time in your home. He should not be in a home with small children - otherwise, he is a great dog!

Aspen - 1160: Coming Soon

Who’s ready for some fun and games and lots of snuggles?
Well then , I’m your girl!
My name is Aspen and I’m a spunky red and white Border Collie mix pup who is loving to learn all about everything.
My foster mom says I’m super smart. I love to play with balls, rope toys, chew on dog bones and I’m having the time of my life playing with my 60 pound foster brother.
This new life is so much fun and I can’t wait to learn more. I’ve been doing really well at potty training too.
My foster mom has a bell for me to ring to go outside to potty and I picked up on that really fast.
I’m kennel trained too.
I absolutely love to run around the back yard and I’ve been told I’m very speedy.
I could be your running buddy or your agility girl maybe but I also love to be lazy and I absolutely love to snuggle on the couch too.
I’ve been working on basic command and that is going well but would love to continue my learning with you in some classes we take together.
I’m 5 1/2 months old and will be current on all my shots after my next visit to the vet soon.
My foster mom thinks I should be a medium size dog under 50 lbs when I grow up.
I would really love a dog sibling to play with and I’m kid friendly too but still a bit of a jumpy pup full of energy, so kids 5 and older would be best.
I’m curious about cats but in a playful way. I’m not spayed yet but will be soon.
I’m located just north of Houston.
Woof, hey there! I'm Caper, the coolest Border Collie around, and I've got a tail-waggin' tale to tell you!
I am a 45 lb, 1.5 year old, neutered, healthy, happy boy!
So, picture this: I'm a purebred Border Collie from some fancy working lines, but guess what? I decided that herding sheep and cattle just wasn't my jam.
Nope, I'm all about the cozy life with a loving family, lots of toys, and plenty of playtime!
At first, I might seem a bit shy, but give me a chance, and I'll warm up quicker than you can say "fetch!"
Once I get to know you, I'm all about snuggles, cuddles, and making you smile every single day. Kids? Oh, I adore them!
Other dogs? Bring 'em on! I'm a social butterfly who loves making new pals.
Now, I haven't had the chance to hang out with any kitties yet, but my foster parents think I'd be just fine with them.
A little patience and proper introductions, and I'm sure we'd get along purr-fectly!
Oh, and did I mention I'm a leash-walking pro? Yep, I'll strut my stuff with you like a furry fashion model.
Plus, I'm always up for an adventure, whether it's a romp in the park or a lazy day on the couch binge-watching your favorite shows.
So, what do you say? Ready to welcome a charming, playful, and oh-so-lovable pup like me into your home?
Come meet me, Caper, and let's start our own tail-waggin' adventure together!
