cocoon Posted January 17, 2014 Report Share Posted January 17, 2014 Hi, first time here and first time we are looking to adopt a dog. Working wife, husband with two kids, about 1/4 acre urban house. I am not usually politically correct, so please correct me as needed. We have chickens for eggs (not for meat) in the backyard and would like to adobe a dog, preferably Border Collie. I did a bit of research and understand (but may not completely can estimate) the effort it takes with BC. I enjoyed my friend (dog) growing up and honestly can say took care of it without much help from my parents. Couple of questions: 1. With 1/4 acre and chickens in backyard (with their own run) and two kids (10 and 13), is it advisable to get a BC 2. Any recommendations on where we can adopt in North NJ area Thank you.
