Lacey's Story...
Meet Lacey, a seven-week old female Border Collie/Belgian Shepherd mix. Lacey has gorgeous, soft, long black and fur with a white chest and long socks. Her markings are more Border Collie than Belgian Shepherd. This sweet little girl figures things out easily and was the first to figure out how to get on the couch despite her short little legs. She is not dominant with other dogs, shares well with her siblings, is quieter than the rest, and loves to be snuggled. She run fast, especially when time comes to go outdoors to play. Lacey enjoys chasing her siblings and exploring the great outdoors. Once she’s played a while, chased puppies, and had a good meal, Lacey heads for her doggie bed and crate and enjoys a long nap cuddled with her sisters. She likes all humans – young and old and gets along with all the other dogs. Lacey currently lives with her foster family and her sisters, in Middle Tennessee.
Lacey is healthy, has received her first set of puppy vaccines, and will be vetted until she is adopted. We spay and neuter all animals in our care, but as Lacey is still too young to be spayed, her adoptive family must commit to having her spayed when she’s five months old. As such, Lacey’s adoption fee will be $150, with $70 returned to the adopters, once we have confirmation the pup has been spayed.


For more information on Lacey, please contact Louise Vande Wiele at louisevdew@gmail.com and we will respond as quickly as possible. Meanwhile, please read the following so that you are aware of our process, and that you agree to it, before asking to adopt one of our rescues.

Anyone wanting to adopt a dog from the RARFS is expected to fill out an adoption application, provide references, sign an adoption contract, agree to a home visit, and finally to pay an adoption fee. Once the application is received, references checked, and a home visit completed, and everything is satisfactory, families can take their new family member home. Should a dog adopted from RARFS need to be rehomed, we ask that the dog be returned to us, or that we approve the new home. We have a no questions asked return policy, but fees will not be reimbursed.

Families who rent must provide a letter from their landlord stating that they are allowed to have a dog listing any size or breed restriction.

We prefer that families come and pick up their new family member, but a licensed pet transport is available. Should we need to transport dogs to their new homes, the adopter will need to pay $150 per dog, to the transport company.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lacey, a Cookeville Border Collie/Belgian Shepherd puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie/Belgian Shepherd for sale in Cookeville, or seeking a Border Collie/Belgian Shepherd puppy from a breeder in Cookeville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cookeville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Cookeville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Border Collie/Belgian Shepherd breeders who help with Border Collie/Belgian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cookeville paves the way for another one to be saved.
