Justice update: this dog is going to be one sweetheart for a single dog family. He might do okay in a two dog family, but for sure not a 3 dog family. He is very comfortable with kids, and while he is very active as far as hiking and playing in the yard, he is mostly a couch potato. He wants to cuddle up and be spoiled

Border Collies became very popular following the release of the movie 'Babe.' Unfortunately, many dogs were adopted by people who had not done proper research into the breed. They have been breed for specific traits that caught many unprepared. We do not want you to be one of those people, so we strongly encourage you to do your research. www.bordercollie.org has a wealth of information, including a printable online pamphlet, Living With Border Collies.
This exert from www.k9web.com is also a good place to start:
The most outstanding characteristic of Border Collies is their desire to work above all other things. They herd with their heads lowered, eyeing the sheep with an intense stare. They notice every movement of the livestock, and they react by moving, at times almost imperceptibly, to take advantage of or counter it. Movement of both dog and stock should be calm and steady. These dogs are the world's premier sheep-working breed and are known for their athleticism, intelligence, and strong work ethic.
Border Collies are heading or gathering herders, as opposed to heelers: their instinct is to run wide around a herd or flock, gather the animals, and return them to the shepherd. Border Collies can be (and are) taught to drive stock away from the shepherd, but they do not usually do it by instinct.
The Dog Liberator is a foster-driven organization dedicated to identifying high-quality dogs and placing them in foster homes to avoid the trauma often associated with pounds, shelters and rescues. While in these homes, the focus is on care and training to turn them into well-balanced pets that can be adopted by loving people.

Rescue Group Info...
I serve the herding group, specifically but not limited to the Collies, Border Collies, Aussies, and Mixed-breeds. I focus on well-balanced dogs, and serve families with children. I accept only highly adoptable dogs, which allows my adoptions to take place from start to finish on an average, 7 to 10 days or less. I accept owner-surrendered purebreds and focus on pulling dogs out of kill shelters.
My home, or the home where the dog is being fostered, on occassion at local dog parks if family has an existing dog and a meet and greet between the two dogs is suggested.
Adoption fees vary on breed, pedigree, transport costs, foster costs, and vetting costs
