Pippa (9 year-old female) (Duncan, BC)

From Pippa's current owner;

Owing to a very difficult family situation we no longer have a home set up that works for Pippa.
She is great little dog, but unfortunately, over the last couple of years, she has developed some aggression issues with other dogs especially small white ones.
We are heartbroken to have to place her but she is deserving of more space and attention than we can now give her.
More importantly her issues are creating unmanageable anxiety in the home.
She would do great in a family that had a yard or lived in a situation where she did not have to encounter off leash dogs.
Pippa is adaptable and adventurous. She has stayed with many family members and friends, is good with children, and even most dogs that she has to live with.
She has never shown an ounce of agression towards any person. She rides motorcycles and bicycles with us and loves hikes appropriate for her age.
Her only health issue is, like most small dogs, occasional dental work and some tooth removal.

Pippa is being rehomed with the support of the breeder

If you are interested in Pippa, please fill in an application form which will be forwarded to her owner.

Enzo (3 year old neutered male) (BC) ADOPTION PENDING

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 contact his breeder miyashitadebbie@gmail.com.

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......

If you are ready to make the commitment to adopt a needy pup, adult or senior "NOW" and are willing to forego the possibility of a Border Terrier in favour of a purebred of another breed, a terrier mix or a simple mutt who desperately needs a "forever home", we urge you to visit www.petfinder.com
They list thousands of deserving dogs on their site and we are confident you will find just the companion you are searching for.
