He has beautiful eyes and his tongue tends to hang out of his mouth just a bit. It’s very cute! Lincoln is shy and takes time to warm up to new people. Once he gets to know & trust someone, he is very loving and affectionate. Lincoln likes the comfort of a kennel when he wants to nap. Lincoln walks great on the leash, does awesome in the back seat on car rides, gets along well with other dogs, and is good with kids.

Zeke – 1 Year Old Male

Zeke is a 2 year old, smooth coated Border Collie. He is high energy and needs a very active home. He would make an excellent farm dog or sporting dog. If you are interested in an agility dog, this might be the boy for you! Zeke has a high prey drive so definitely NO small animals (including small dogs) or cats will work for him. Zeke is a very loving boy, he loves to play ball and Frisbee. He is currently working on returning it back to you. Zeke does get along with other dogs that match his energy style. He loves to run and play with dog friends. Zeke cannot be placed in a home with kids, because of his high energy and prey drive, he is too fast and busy for them.

Gunner – 4 Year Old Male {Adoption Pending, November 2018}

Gunner is a 4 year old, AKC registered Border Collie. He was Relinquished to a local shelter by a couple going through a divorce. They made a huge sacrifice to give Gunner a better home that can spend time with him. If you adopt Gunner you are getting the full Border Collie package. This boy already knows all of his commands and more. Gunner plays a mean fetch, he will catch the ball in the air, bring it back to you and put it between your feet. If you hold out your hand, the slobbery ball is absolutely going to end up there. Gunner did not do well confined in a kennel. Gunner can jump a 4 foot fence, since we know this, we are looking for potential families with 6 foot fences. Gunner has only been with us a short time, but before he came to us he was living with a pre-teen. We now have him living with a foster that has two little ones.  He need some leash manners but will make a great companion.
