Facts about Runt Girl

  • Breed: Border Collie Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female

7/7/17 - Meet Runt Girl of the Border Collie Crew Pups! There are 7 pups in this
litter, 5 girls and 2 boys. They have nicknames so we can tell them
apart as several look very similar. We have Crazy Girl, Freckle Girl,
White Toes, Black Toes and Runt Girl are the girls and the boys are
Freckle Boy and Brownie. All of the pups look full or mostly full Border
Collie with the exception of Runt Girl who is the only smooth coated pup
and much smaller than the others. These pups are very typical Border
Collie. They basically spend their days playing, active, wallering in
the mud, digging holes, swimming in their pool, sleeping, barking or
eating. Because of this, their breed and activity level, we prefer
adoptive families have experience with Border Collies, working breeds
and have a safe area where they can be happy and active. This breed is a
working breed so they will tend to be higher energy than the average pup
and not happy about being cooped up inside all day. Currently the pups
use a doggie door at their foster homes and have been fairly well
behaved. They will require leash, crate and house training. Each pup has
their own personality. Runt Girl obviously got her name for being the
runt of the litter. Don't let that fool you, she has the most spunk as
many times the smallest pups do. She is so full of personality and ready
to take on the World. She loves playing with her siblings, wallering in
the mud like a piggie, digging holes and swimming in her pool. She is
about half the size of her siblings, she's currently 9 pounds at 14
weeks of age. She could have some type of small breed terrier in her
while her siblings look full Border Collie. She would love a home where
she would be the center of attention and have some one to boss around.
She will most likely be about 30 pounds when full grown.

To apply for this rescue, please use this address in a new window - or you can email us directly at We respond to all inquiries within 24 hours so if
you do not receive a reply, please check your Spam folder. If a puppy is
posted for adoption, they are available unless they are marked pending.
Once your application is approved, we require a deposit of $150
(non-refundable) to be paid to hold your puppy. Should the puppy not be
available to transport, your deposit is refunded. The balance of the
adoption fee is required prior to your transport date. Our Adoption Fee
is $450 total including deposit and helps to reimburse for the vet care
we have provided. It also includes transport by a USDA licensed
transporter. We only use direct transports to reduce the length of time
our rescues are on the road to their new homes. If you reside in a
mandated quarantine State (MA & NH) you must comply with your States
requirement of placing your new pup in a licensed quarantine for the
period required by law for your State. Quarantine states usually require
a 2 night stay in a licensed facility. This is required by law in some
states and has nothing to do with our rescue. We work with a licensed
quarantine facility in each state that requires it. These costs are not
included in the adoption fee and usually run about $100 (NH) & $120
(MA). All of our rescues are fully vetted to include ~ Spay/Neuter with
exam and including blood work if needed and by a full service
Veterinarian, all vaccinations including bordatella and rabies, multiple
wormings with Drontal Plus, monthly heart worm and flea/tick
preventatives and microchipping. The puppies are fostered in Little
Rock, Arkansas and are transported to their adoptive home once vetted
and age appropriate. This rescue is available for transport after
7/27/17. Additional photos and information can be found on our FB page at

About For Dogs Sake

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small, volunteer organized and run dog rescue. We work with shelters and rescue groups in AR & AL to find homes for their locally unwanted, but highly loveable puppies and dogs. The pups and dogs are brought to New England on transport once their vaccinations are up to date for travel. We are always in need of foster homes for our pups; the more we have, the more pups can be saved.

Courtesy post: FDSR has chosen to help select other rescue groups with exposure in hopes that their dogs may have a better chance for placement. FDSR only lists the dogs and their bio information as is it presented to us. We are not involved with the approval or adoption of these animals; that is done through the other rescue groups. Know that a decline from that group does not mean that other rescues (including FDSR) would decline a subsequent application for adoption of one of our pups, as each group has their own set of criteria for approval.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Appointments can be made to visit some pups at their foster homes at mutually convenient times for adopters and foster parents. (The pups are up for a visit anytime!)

Our Adoption Process...

We require the potential adopter to fill out an application form and tell us about what life would be like as a puppy at your house. The address to the adoption form can be found in the pups' bio. Once the application is received, we will check your references and then contact you for an informal "phone interview." If it is mutually determined to be a good match, an adoption contract is sent via email. Our adoption fee is stated in their bios, and is due at the time of adoption. A signed and dated adoption contract is due at puppy pick up.
