Getting a Red Dawn Border Collie Puppy
If you are interested in getting more information and
possibly getting on the waiting list for one of my pups, please review
my Puppy Buyer Questionnaire and email it to me filled out with
detailed answers. I'll read through it to decide if you're a good
match for a puppy from me, then call or email you to converse further.
After we've talked I'll send you the
Contract for you to fill out, sign and mail me a $200 deposit to
reserve a puppy. By the time puppies are born it is common for me to
already have multiple deposits on that litter, so waiting to see how
the pups turn out may exclude you from getting a pup from that litter.
You may also send me a contract and deposit to be on my general
waiting list. You may at any time choose to be placed on a particular
litter of your choosing and if a pup is not born to meet your
criteria, you may wait for a future litter. I will hold your deposit
for up to 1 year, after that time if you have not chosen a pup you'll
need to start the process over.
I only sell
my pups to performance homes, absolutely no pets... My definition of a
pet is a dog whose purpose is to be a companion. The only expectation
that an owner should have from his pet is to be loving, take nice
walks, play a little when the family is ready and be generally
obedient. Border Collies do not do well in that scenario.
They need more mental and physical stimulation than the average home
can allow. So if your plans are to have a Border Collie to enjoy a dog sport
like Agility, Frisbee, Flyball, Obedience, Tracking or Schutzhund; or
you plan to have a real working dog to Herd on your farm, do Search
and Rescue or Drug/ Bomb Detection, I’d love to work with you. For
those of you who are looking for a Border Collie as a pet, please
consider adopting an adult. Many wonderful adult Border Collies are in
need of a home. A Border Collie of any age bonds very quickly and is
willing to please. By adopting an adult, you know what you are getting
in temperament, health and size. This allows you to get the EXACT dog
you are looking for. Be sure to enroll in an obedience class right
away so both of you learn how to communicate with each other.
