Cedar (BC)

Cedar is a five year old neutered male Border Terrier who is looking for a very special home to call his own
He is currently in foster care for a rescue in Victoria BC.

As with most Borders who find themselves in need of a new home, he has some issues but they are not insurmountable and what might be a problem for one family will not be a deal breaker in the right home.
Per his foster person, Cedar is doing really well, he "might" possibly be able to live with another dog with an experienced, terrier savvy owner and under the right circumstances.
But he would be MUCH happier as an only dog. He cannot live with cats at all. they are a no go for him.

He adores all people big and small and is lovely in that respect. He definitely needs to be walked on leash and is just fine when out as long as strange dogs are not permitted to get in his face.
Group walks and dog parks are not appropriate.

His biggest down fall is separation anxiety. he is not destructive but will howl when left alone although he does quiet down. Apartment living or anywhere where noise might be disruptive is not an option.
In the car he gets excited and will also howl when he thinks he is going somewhere. So his vocalizing is still a work in progress and his new home will need to commit to continuing his reeducation.

His love of people will make him an absolute treasure for the home prepared to deal with his shortcomings and willing to put in the effort to help him be all that he can be.
If you think that Cedar might be the companion for you, please fill in an application form which will be forwarded to his foster home




Enzo (3 year old neutered male) (BC)

From Enzo's breeder:

Enzo is sweet and fun loving with people. Good around kids. He's being re homed as his first family have had two babies in rapid succession and they can't cope with his idiosyncrasies.
Enzo has some anxiety issues - he CANNOT be left in a car and hates parking lots.
He also is VERY aggressive towards other male dogs and can get wound-up fairly easily.
His family was using an anti-anxiety medication to settle him from time to time when he whined to go out or for attention.

Enzo has been back with us (his breeders) since early April and he hasn't shown any signs of any issues here.
He plays well with my our female Borders but we've not tried him with the two neutered males - just no reason to to upset the apple cart at home if it didn't go well.

Enzo needs a home where there are likely no other dogs or perhaps one female.
He LOVES having access to our big fenced yard and watching the horses in the next field and the sheep in our yard.
He does bark a bit but not excessively.
I wouldn't trust him in public without a muzzle - we haven't seen the aggression but it's been reported by his previous owners.
Enzo seems a little high strung to us but not over the top.


If you are interested in Enzo, please fill in an application form which will be forwarded to his breeder.

or visit their web site. You can also complete an email application here that will be forwarded to NABTW


If you feel you may have a home for a rescue Border, do not let distance dissuade you from making contact. If it is determined through communication and referrals that the right home is not a local home, NABTW, CBTW and Border Terrier rescue volunteers Nationwide will work together to help transport the lucky little dog to his/her forever home.


Others in need of a Home......

They list thousands of deserving dogs on their site and we are confident you will find just the companion you are searching for.
