Hi! Hi! Hi! I’m Maisy Moo!  I am a high energy border collie mix. I’m tall and slim weighing 45-lbs.  I love to run and hike, I can spend hours playing with other dogs or tugging on a rope with you. I will need a traditional fenced yard to keep me safe while I stretch my long legs.  I am a ball of goofy energy that wants to make you laugh and smile at my antics.  My foster mom can’t help but laugh when I wiggle myself onto her lap and give kisses.
 
I am smart too, I have already learned my basics like sit, down, and stay.  I can kennel-up and I’m working really hard at not pulling on my leash. I am learning to come when called but sometimes I get distracted by good sniffs and squirrels.  I am quick to learn new house rules, like staying off of counters and leaving my peoples food alone.  I love the challenge of new tricks and I keep trying until I get it. I would love to keep learning new tricks and tasks, can you teach me?
 
MOKAN calls me a sporting dog because I feel best when I have jobs to do and things to learn.  My foster mom tells me that I am fast and agile, she thinks I could do great things with something called agility or disc dog.  I’ve tried agility and I guess I’m a natural, my favorite was the A-frame but tunnels are pretty awesome too. 
 
I currently live with a dog, cats, and young children.  I get along great with other dogs and I respect cats in the house.  The little kids I love, I just want to cover them in licks, maybe I love them a little too much because I knock them over. I don’t try to herd people or children but my mom thinks I do best in a home with older children so that I don’t cause any accidents.
 
I was relinquished to the nice people at MOKAN  by my owner because they knew I needed more mental and physical simulation in my life. I am a happy, confident girl who can’t wait for a forever home. 
 

Important Information: I have a history of running and can easily jump a 4-ft fence when the mood strikes me so a fully fenced yard is absolutely necessary. My play style comes on a little strong for some dogs and I’m tireless in my attempts to get others to play with me.  So I will need to meet any potential siblings to know they are up for my intensity.  I also have some reactive quirks, like meeting other dogs through a fence or barrier and sometimes while on leash.  I’ll need my new family to be patient with me, familiar with positive reinforcement, and be ready to bond with me in formal training.

Jagger

This is Jagger.  He likes to play with the ball or Frisbee (or really anything you’ll throw) non-stop.  He is high energy and will play all day, until told that play time is over. In the evenings when he calms down he gets cuddly and curls up on the couch with you. 


Jagger is a little bit timid around strangers but warms up real quick once they play fetch with him. He is also afraid of loud scary noises, and tends to bolt so he’ll need to fenced yard to keep him safe. Jagger does still need to learn to walk on a leash without pulling, he does do ok with a harness.

He is very good about his crate and often chooses to sleep in there. When asked to go in he goes right in a curls up and sleeps. He is a little nervous riding in the car and likes to hide down on the floor.

Jagger will be turning 3 in November.  He likes playing with our border collie but is very respectful of his Chihuahua sister. He got an A+ at daycare for his interactions with other dogs. He needs an active
house and would prefer one with kids. Jagger loves kids of all ages.  He likes other dogs so a home with a current pet would be just fine.

Kenzie

 

kenzie

Hi everyone, beautiful Kenzie here.  I’m so happy to be in my wonderful foster home, because before now I lived my life outside alone.  I’m about 2 years old and full of life and curiosity. Living indoors with people is a new and very different experience but I’ve decided I can definitely get used to being spoiled this way. All the things and sounds in the house were so strange to me at first. My foster family says I’m a very curious and social girl.  I love spending time with my people and have become somewhat of an attention hog!  I love to play with my fur-brothers and sisters and I’m even respectful to my kitty siblings.  Sometimes I get in my typical border collie stance and pounce on my foster brother just for fun.
 
I’m pretty smart, too, if I do say so myself (I AM a border collie, after all).  In just a couple of days I learned that going potty is to be done outside, my name is Kenzie, and I get cheese if I sit when told.  I love to please my humans so I try really hard at that.  My humans play outside with me a lot.  Chasing a ball is great fun, especially if it has a squeaker.  Frisbees are fun, too, but I’m still figuring out exactly how they work.  (It would help if foster mom and dad were better at throwing them, don’t you think)?   I also like dancing with my front feet when I get excited and I’d love to give you lessons.  One thing I’ve learned about living inside is that there’s this thing called a vacuum. It’s my enemy.  When I get scared I like to go in my “fort” under mom and dad’s bed, or into my kennel because I feel really safe in there.
 
Since I’ve moved in with my foster family, I’ve started learning how to be a dog.  I never knew life could be this good.  But because I was on my own for so long and had to take care of myself, I have some anxiety about certain things.  I need you to be patient with me and go slow and steady so I know I can trust you and that I’m safe.

I like to go for walks and walk well on leash but cars, crowds and unfamiliar surroundings can be pretty scary.  Right now I’m on some medicine to help me deal with my anxiety, but foster mom thinks this will be temporary as I gain my confidence and experience.  If there are children in my new home, I would do best with children over 8 years old.  I live with 3 other dogs, 2 cats and a bunny so I’ll be fine in a home with other pets.
 
I’m a pretty great girl, and am looking for an experienced border collie home to help me settle into this new world I am discovering.  Like any new dog, I would benefit from general obedience classes to help me learn and form a stronger bond with you.  
I am house-trained, crate-trained, micro-chipped and up to date on all my vaccinations.  It is very important that I have a securely fenced yard in my new home.   Are you ready to meet me yet?  I promise you won’t be sorry!
 
Love and kisses,
Kenzie

Liberty

Liberty was found stray in Arkansas and made her way to Columbia where she is being fostered with MOKAN BC Rescue. “Libby” is a petite one year old female that weighs 35#. She may not be very big, but she loves life with every ounce of her being! Every dog she meets is a new potential friend and she does some pretty amazing moves to engage them to play with her. She does not easily give up! I have had many LOL moments watching her try to get my grumpy aussie to chase her. If her efforts fail, she will resign herself to playing with one of many toys. She isn’t picky and enjoys sticks as much as balls or squeaky toys. She loves to be busy. Libby has a hearing deficit and may be completely deaf. She takes her cues from other dogs in her foster home and is learning hand signals. She is a very quick study! Libby will do best in a home with another dog who has good recall and a fenced in yard.

Libby is usually able to make it outside to potty though she has had a couple accidents. She needs to be let out regularly and told to “potty”. Otherwise she gets too involved in running around that she forgets about the whole potty thing until she makes it back inside. She is definitely figuring it out and the dog door too.

Libby is already pretty used to the crate and has been sleeping for 8 hours crated in her foster mom’s bedroom. She loves to go for car rides and is fine with or without a crate.

Libby is learning commands and knows sit, paw, down, and “no”. Due to her hearing deficit, she is learning to come with a hand signal but she is also wonderful with following my one border collie who is good with recall so I think we will get this all figured out without much problem. Libby prefers not to use a leash. She thinks she is a big girl and doesn’t need such a stupid thing as a leash to tell her which way to go. But, she does walk quite nicely with a training collar and has learned that putting up a fuss doesn’t mean she gets her own way.

Libby has been cat tested and says she would love to have a cat in her new home! She is playful with cats that will play with her and avoids those who hiss. She does not have a strong herding or prey drive. She is definitely one of the friendliest and most confident border collies I have worked with.


Libby needs a fenced yard to keep her safe.

Liberty is being fostered in the Columbia, Mo area.

Bo is all puppy.  His tail is always wagging and if he's not ready to play he's ready to love.    Bo just celebrated his first birthday and he would like every day to be an occasion to get now toys!  He doesn't care if they are chew toys or balls or stuffies as he thinks they are all great!  Bo thinks everyone canine or human is his friend, but he doesn't realize that he comes on strong.  He is learning how to rein in his eagerness but will need a family that is patient with him as he continues to learn nice dog manners. He is already crate trained and know sit and has a fair recall.  Of course, being a BC he loves to go for walks and rides and cuddling.  Bo is a tall boy and is working on bulking up his build.

Bo will need a fenced yard to keep him safe.

Bo is being fostered in the KC area.
