  1. Hello. I am considering getting a puppy from On the Lamb which is a working farm in CA run by Robin Elliott. I am not interested in herding personally but rather sport (casual agility) and hiking focused, but want to get a pup from working parents.

  2. I live in the SF Bay Area, and I'm not looking to get my Border Collie for a couple more years (I'm a college student!) but I really want to start making contacts and forming a network.

I've fostered for my local BC rescue and GSD rescue. I live in an apartment with roommates who like dogs but aren't super knowledgable about them. They just adopted a 1 year old BC - looks purebred to me but is very quiet luckily. She is still a BC though and they were completely unprepared for her - she is a car chaser, reactive on
  5. I live in a very urban neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY called Gowanus. I live in an apartment that allows dogs and have been wanting one for some time. I owned a rescued BC for several years before she passed away, and she was my adventure and cuddle buddy and running partner. Ness would not have thrived in NYC - she didn't like being touched very much and startled easily by strange sounds. I loved teaching her tons of tricks, and we did agility as well as dabbled in herding. (I dabbled, she was very serious about it) I'm a distance runner and love urban hiking. I have enough time for a dog n
