  1. Thank you everyone else for the replies. Hearing your great stories, I have opened myself up more to rescues. Hearing of so many sensitive dogs like the border collie go through recuse and come out as great dogs has really encouraged me. I met met many wonderful dogs in rescue but they have been of hardier breeds and the only border collies that came through the humane society i worked at were products of their upbringing and NOT for the better. I have looked arond at border collie rescues and see many dogs that would probably be good for me. I will continue the search for a breeder as we
  2. This. Exactly. I thought I typed this in my sleep because these are all of my thoughts and feelings on a puppy. It is nice hearing someone is as crazy about it as I am. Chantel, if you ever find a breeder you like please let me know!! I am looking for the same!

  5. Hi guys! I am fairly new here but have been learning SO MUCH from all of the very knowledgable posters. The more I learn, the more questions I have though. :wacko:/> My big questions is where to find a good breeder. I have read a lot about ABCA vs AKC and am on the side of preserving the breed as it should be. I first fell in love with BCs because of their brains, heart, mannerisms, and work ethic.
