border collieDakota is a lot like me, she can be a bit funny with other dogs and people but once she knows you she's fine, not a fan of strangers and she doesn't like surprises like sudden loud noises or people moving towards her too quickly. She loves to play ball and is rather partial to the odd treat of chicken viennas or polony, she'd suit a quieter home with no children. Dakota is 7yrs old, her owners sadly had to downsize and there wasn't a garden for her. She's with us in Centurion contact for an application form
border collieBex and MacLeod are currently in East London, their owners are relocating early 2018 but would like to find them homes asap. 3 year old male Macleod on the right is something of an escape artist so 2 metre high walls are a must and he has a deep hatred of Jack Russell's, having been attacked by one as a puppy. He is completely friendly and kept egging me on for a game of tug or throwing one of his toys. He was besotted with an empty plastic bottle. 6 year old female Bex on the left is a friendly, adaptable dog but suffers from separation distress when people are not around. She has been diagnosed with Hip Dysplasia but it doesn't worry her yet, might have to go on joint supplements in later years. Both of them are great with cats. Contact for an application form

border collieTigger's owner had to move into a retirement home and he couldnt go with her, Tigger isnt a big fan of anything around or anyone grabbing his round his neck & will snap at you, all bluff as he snaps the air not you but we still wouldn't like to home him with children. Loves to give hugs & yes he really is that wide, too many marie biscuits and needs to lose a few kgs.
Tigger is around 7 years old, good with female dogs but needs to be the only male.
He's with us in Centurion, contact for an application form
border collieTou was found tied to a tree which he'd walked round and ended up being trapped unable to move. He's about 5yrs old and is a lot of dog. Big boy probably a Rottweiler cross. Can be a bit possessive of his food but he was skinny and starving. He's very food driven and will do almost anything for a biscuit. Can be a bit of a thug bouncing off you in play so we don't think he would be suitable for a home with children. He's a lot of dog and will need a strong handler. Tou is with us in Centurion contact for an application form

bcFranco was found as a stray and unclaimed, he loves his teddy bear, loves playing catch and tuggy with it. He is around 4yrs old, rather a handsome boy, shorter coat so easy to keep looking dapper, great on a leash and in a car. Franco is with us in Centurion contact for an application form

border colliesRinkhals (girl) and Zoro (boy) are brother and sister, around 3 years old and they are looking for a good home to be placed together. They are a German Shepherd and Collie mix. They are very obedient and alert but they are also very sensitive and would prefer a home where there arenít any other animals. Zoro gets very attached and jealousy arises from it, whereas Rhinkhals is quite sensitive around other dogs and tends to get intimidated easily. These two love to play and run around. They have to go to a new home together as they are inseparable Ė they have such a beautiful bond ! NOTE: Rinkhals, the girl, has a food allergy - we have changed her food to a Dermatosis food and she is doing really well on it, thus she would need to go to a home where the same type of food can be provided. Zoro has beautiful but very thick coat. Contact Talitha Etsebeth on 082 372 9464 or

border collieSophie is a 12yr female, she was left at a vet with her sister because one of them (we don't know which one) allegedly bit a child (have no idea what was happening to cause a bite) and they said they were fighting with their other dogs.We do know they both seem to be a really nice pair of normal friendly Border Collies and we also know Sophie will chase cats. Will look a lot better after they have had a good bath and groom. We aren't looking to home them together. Sophie is with us in Centurion contact for an application form to give her the golden years at home.

border collieSmooch had pups, another shelter took her in until her pups were old enough to home on the understanding her owners wanted her back, sadly when that time came Smooch found herself unwanted.
She's around 3yrs old, craves company, loves people and being with them and will try every means possible to get to them, so, you will need either very high walls, electric fencing or someone to be around most of the time to keep her in. She's smaller than an average collie and has just the most fantastic nature, she's with us in Centurion, contact for an application form
