Dogs Available from our rescue group
This page contains available dogs that are in foster care homes for the Border Collie Rescue of Northern California, Inc. The foster homes are located between Monterey and Stockton. In order to adopt a dog from this adoption page, you must first submit an Adoption Application. Once your application has been approved, you will be eligible to adopt any of our rescue dogs. To submit your application, you may apply online. You will be notified by email when your application has been approved. If you have any questions please email email@example.com. To inquire about any of the dogs listed below, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All of the dogs who come to Border Collie Rescue of Northern California from shelters, will remain in our foster homes for a minimum of two weeks before going up for adoption. This will insure they are not carrying any diseases they may have picked up in the shelter and if they have been spayed or neutered, will give them time to properly heal. This minimum foster period will also allow our foster providers time to help the dogs adjust to living in a normal home and this will help make their transition to their new homes much easier. Occasionally we might post a dog who has just come into rescue, for extra exposure, but we will always post the date they will become available. You may inquire about those dogs but will not be able to meet them until their posted date.
Marco and Polo are 3 1/2 month old males.

Meet Marco and Polo, sweet young boys who have been through a lot the past few weeks. They were purchased by a family when they were 2 months old, but then they came down with the Parvo virus. This is a deadly virus if not treated and the treatments are very expensive. The family couldn't afford to treat them so the animal hospital called our rescue. We took the boys the next day and now they are doing great. They are healthy and happy and they love to give kisses!!! Once a dog has Parvo, they won't get it again, so this is at least one benefit for everything these boys have gone through!
Marco is a tri-color and Polo is black & white. They are using a doggy door to go outside to potty and have not had an accident in the house. They sleep in a crate at night and are walking pretty well on leash. These sweet boys will be ready for adoption after the 24th of October. We are now taking applications to find the perfect home for each boy. Even though their names go together and they play very well with each other, they will not be adopted to the same household.
To find out more about these boys you must first have an approved application on file. To inquire about adopting them, please email email@example.com and let us know which male is your favorite.
Marco and Polo are being fostered in Morgan Hill.

Freckles is a female - 2 years old
(Click on her photo for additional photos)
Freckles is a very sweet girl. She is also very friendly to people. She has done pretty well with other dogs, but those were dogs she learned to know over time. Since it takes her a while to get used to other dogs, she is definitely not a dog who would do well in a dog park situation. At this time, walking in public areas can also be a challenge with her. If Freckles was taken to weekly obedience classes where she would have to learn to obey her owner while in the presents of other dogs, she would eventually get used to seeing the dogs and would not feel she needs to worry about them. Until she has had that training, Freckles would do well as a family dog who is exercised and played with in the backyard. She is crate trained and walks nicely on leash. Freckles is quiet and learns what is expected of her very quickly. She is excellent in the house and she is crate trained. She rides well in a car if she is in a crate.
If you are interested in Freckles, you must have an approved application on file. To inquire about adopting her, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

This is Cowboy Red - a 2 year old purebred red & white male - born 9/12/12. Cowboy is a very sweet and friendly boy. He is also good with other dogs. Cowboy is a big boy, weighing in at about 55 pounds.
Cowboy has lived his whole life on a ranch and he is a good herding dog. He had some issues with goats who didn't want to pay attention to him. For this reason, his owners felt he would be better out of a ranch environment. Cowboy was mainly an outside dog at the ranch so he is learning about being in the house at his foster home. He does sleep at night in a crate and has been very good.
For more information about this beautiful boy, you must have an approved application on file. To inquire about adopting Cowboy Red, please email email@example.com.
Cowboy is being fostered in Morgan Hill.
