Needing Homes


Unfortunately, we do not always have enough foster homes to accommodate all the Border Collies who need to be rescued.
The dogs on this page are listed as a service to other rescue groups
or for owners who need to place their dog, but will keep them until a suitable home is found.

Mo-Kan Border Collie Rescue has not met or evaluated these dogs
and therefore, makes no representations of the health, temperament, or suitability of these dogs.

Nonetheless, they still need homes.

Please contact the person listed on the dogs below for more info.

Bear and Lady

Looking for a great home or homes two 4yr old spayed female and neutered male border collies. Wife’s chronic migraines makes it difficultfor her to give the dogs the time they need. Both are up on their vaccinations and are in excellent health. They regularly go to Cedar Ridge Veterinary Clinic in Atchison, KS. Both dogs have gone through training with Kelly Miller of Kelly’s Kennels(kninekelly@yahoo.com).

Bear (male) has very strong herding instincts, constantly on the move, and would do ...best in a home (farm) where he would have a job. Lady (female) is much more  reserved and skittish at times but very athletic and an explorer. She would make a good companion. Neither dog is house broke as they are kept in an 80x60ft pen. They are only brought in over night in extremely cold weather. These dogs are located in northeastern Kansas.

Contact Frank Gorski for more information fgorski2001@yahoo.com or Robin at bordergirl1996@yahoo.com
100.00 Adoption fee. There will be a screening process.

Ren, November 4, 2016

Ren is a high energy, active/working energy level border collie, who needs a “job”.  She is smart, fun, and totally Border Collie.  She would be perfect for someone who will teach her agility, or another active sport, and who is an alpha personality.  Ren is not for the inexperienced Border Collie owner, or one who is not super active.

We estimate Ren at 2 years of age, she weighs about 40 lbs, is medium coat and black and white.      She is extremely fast, determined, herdy, and dominant.  She tries to “run” the house, including people and dogs, although she is wonderful (inside and outside) with one of my other foster dogs who is blind.

Ren will require a traditional fenced yard of at least 5 feet, as she has a high prey drive, and can jump amazingly high.  She loves to play with other dogs.  Ren tends to be rough, dominant, and herdy outside, although I can back her off if she gets too pushy.   

I work from a home office, and we go outside every couple of hours, and chase around.  Then I go back to work and Ren and Siri play like crazy.   Play, play, play is should be Ren’s name!  She is very toy driven, and loves to “tug” with Siri, and remove squeakers from toys.  That is only after she has driven you crazy squeaking it!  It’s a good thing she does not normally bark much!  However, she has a “brat” bark.  If she is crated, and she wants attention, activity, or I am leaving, she barks (loud).  She generally quiets down within a few minutes of being ignored. 

Overall, Ren is great in the house, although she occasionally goes #2.  She tends to forget to go #2 outside, as she is such a busy girl.  I’ve taken her sheep herding to be tested, and she has a ton of potential (eye and self-confidence).  It was a joy to watch her work the very first time she was on sheep!  I also had one of my friends at our kennel club try her on some agility equipment, and my friend said Ren has talent and self-confidence, and she thinks Ren will work for anybody.  I have a video of agility and herding.

Ren is an inside dog, and crate trained.  Although Ren is very active in the house, she sometimes has an off switch, and will snuggle with me.  She follows me everywhere when she is not playing with Siri, and likes to try to keep other dogs away from me by herding them away.  She is spayed, up to date on shots, heartworm (4 dx test), on heartworm/flea preventative, and has been chipped. 

Due to Ren’s personality and energy level, she would need both an active home, and a home with dogs who do not mind being herded, and and/or who are dominant.  She cannot go to a home with young children, or someone who will let her take charge of their house. 

Ren is being fostered in Paducah, KY (western KY) by Away to Me BC Rescue.  We are approximately 3 hours southeast of St. Louis, and approximately 2 hours northwest of Nashville.  For more information on Ren, please contact Chris at ilovebordercollies@live.com

Makita was born in may 2007, she is spayed and current on vaccinations. Makita is an affectionate and playful girl, she would benefit from a family with a big fenced in yard or someone who just enjoys walks and wants some company. She does sometimes get scared if there is a big thunderstorm, so she would have to be inside with her family because she has been known in the past to jump the fence when she is scared. But she would be a great addition to a family where she can get the love and attention she deserves.

Makita is at Callaway Hills Shelter in New Bloomfield, MO.
