Arrival Story:
Updated as of 11/26/07: Tex was adopted from a nice lady up North and he will live a live as a real coyboy dog hearding sheep and cattle! Yepeee!!!! This is Tex, a gorgeous young pup, full of energy and great spirit. He is one of the Rowdy Bunch, born on a cattle ranch and bred from ABCA registered parents who work hard for a living. Both the father and mother are working Border Collies, the mother is 1/2 McCallum Border Collie (http://mccallumk9.com/index.html) . Because of a general depression in the beef and sheep industries, it gets harder every year for even the best credentialed dogs to find herding jobs with a reputable outfit. And so, these gentlemen were sent to the big city (Sunnyvale/San Jose) by their parents' employers to find less traditional types of employment (agility partner, running companion, personal trainer). Tex (and his brothers) were well cared for by the rancher that bred and raised them. Tex loves all people and dogs and enjoys playing tug-of-war or chasing each other with our resident females. He is not (yet) a ball dog, but loves to play with the torn-up volley ball, trying to herd it and then catch it eventually. He is not a runner and sticks around close-by where the fun is. He walks nicely on his leash without tugging and responds very well to corrections from his foster parents or his doggie sister Jersey, who has to put him in his place once in a while. Although he has very high energy - as you would expect from a 4-months old Border Collie boy - he settles down nicely in his crate for a time-out or during the night. In fact, he sleeps through the night without complaining once. Tex uses the doggie door when he has to go out and he is almost graduating from being fully housebroken. Being Border Collies, there is no job that they can’t do, but because of their bloodlines, the usual caveats about BCs (no young children, cats, etc.) strictly apply. Also, if this would be your first puppy or first herding dog, these are probably not appropriate dogs to start with. Finally, it is not in the best interest of these dogs to be left without appropriate supervision and/or constraints during the day. If you are looking for a new partner and family member, that for whatever reason must have BC brains, energy, focus and agility in order to do his job, then Tex is certainly worth looking at. The original foster family reports that they have never fostered a litter that was any better, or any more representative of all the great (and not so great) qualities that combine to make up the Border Collie experience. If you would like to meet this wonderful potential new family member, you must have an approved application on file. For more information or to schedule a visit, please email barbara2705@hotmail.com
