I enjoyed your site & video. I recently lost my beautiful border collie Jazz, almost 15 years old. We enjoyed all our days together playing, walking & flyball. I miss her so much. I will visit your site again, thank you Barbara

You have the most gorgeous healthy family of border collies - looking for a super collie to fill the dog shaped hole left by our black and white bitch Bonnie.

Hello,

I am Margaret and my husband and I are looking to adopt a border collie into our lives. Unfortunately, we recently lost our beloved border collie Rhona, who we had adopted at age of eight. We live on the Isle of Bute in Rothesay, and have a large secure garden. We gave Rhona lots of walks and runs on the many beaches here. We miss her terribly and want another border collie in our lives. I had rescued a border collie from a shelter in 2002, and he soon thereafter started having seizures. It was difficult having a dog with epilepsy, but I loved him and took care of him for many years. We feel that it would be great to start fresh with a puppy from a good breeder this time, in order to feel better assured of the health quality the pet will enjoy. Please, if you would like to talk with us our number is: 01700 503 247. John is almost fully retired, and when he works, it is usually only one or two days at best. I work part time and between the two of us, there is usually someone home. Thank you for considering our inquiry. We would be interested in one of your border collie pups. Thank you very much. Kind regards, Margaret and John

Love both breeds. I am looking for either a Sheltie or a Papillon. I am retired and miss having a sweet pet. I owned the daughter of a very famous Sheltie at one time. She was special. My Papillon passed away in July and I am still grieving.

i enjoyed your site and like your views. Your collies are beautiful. My darling Spot, a Kamarda collie and my companion for 15 years, died last month, and though missing him still, I'm looking to see who might have litters next year (2017).

Best wishes, Sarah

Lovely talking to you the other night Lyndsay- I learned a lot- and hoping I will be able to have a Borderpride Pup- unless a slightly older dog becomes available by any chance.

I am a previous owner of a Border Collie,Casey,i purchased him at 8 weeks old and unfortunately had him put to sleep a few years ago now at the grand age of 17 years. He was a huge part of the family,growing up with my sons who are now 26 years and 25 years old.For years i have said i would never have another dog but now i am a nana with a 3 year old grandson who i feel needs a dog to grow up with and Border Collies are the perfect breed.Your dogs look stunning and well cared for,will you be breeding this year?

Many Thanks

I have looked at your site a couple of times since our beautiful border collie Poppy passed away at Christmas at the age of 14 years. Poppy was my best friend I told her everything and she picked up on every mood, she was our second border collie our first Sam was 17 years old when he passed away. Life isn't the same and a house isn't a home without a border collie. We know the time will soon come when we are ready to take in another member of the household and after looking at this lovely site with the care and affection that you have for your boys and girls we will definitely visit the site again. :)

Seriously missing having four legs at my side ...... now serioiusly looking. Thank you for providing such an interesting informative but fun website for all to enjoy. Pamela

Hello-having had to have our old lady (Pickle) a full border collie (we have had 151/2 years) put to sleep this morning we are feeling very raw but considering another challenge by way of another Border Collie pup-please advise of litters you may have coming forward.Pickle was black & white.and came from the Border Collie Rescue Centre Rugeley. We were heavily vetted at the time but that was good thing as in actual fact Pickle soon got us trained . She is going to a hard act to follow- so intelligent and intuitive. The previous Border Collie (cross) lived for 16 years

By the way I love your website

Currently searching for my next forever-dog and have so enjoyed coming across your site. Great information and pictures. Lovely to be able tell by the way your write about each dog what their personalities are like. Good puppy policy too - they're too precious for anything less. All the best for the future in your new home. Sara (Mum of Mavis who crossed the Bridge 10/10/14)

Hi there, decided recently to start the process of opening up my home, life and heart to a puppy again. It has been quite a few years now. As I seem to have shared (over the last 30 plus years) my life with adult border collie crosses who needed a home and seemed to find me at the time. I am taking my time to search and it was lovely to come across your website. Just moving to Derbyshire and enjoying the freedom of exploring the countryside with my dog Buster is wonderful, he is now approx 11/12 years and a tricolour BC cross . Now I have retired it is even better. Your dogs are beautiful and I love your policy re puppies. Thanks again . Linda ( Glossop)

What a lovely website. You passion for your animals shows through. I am hoping to realise my lifelong dream to add a Border Collie to my family and can't wait to have company on my walks. Thank you for the links to Honey's, I love the idea of the food being prepared and delivered frozen. All the goodness but without any hassle. I am trying to wait another six months to really research and plan and get to know the Breed as we have always had Labs and then a Spaniel. I hope to be in touch in the future.

what a wonderful site, nice to know you wont let your puppies go to any home and you vet the new owners. collies are special dogs and not suited to normal life 9 to 5. I ve owned 2 border collies, lost one 2 yrs ago at the age of 16yrs and still have my other Bliss she is now 16yrs, (old lady) such faithful dogs. If and when we are in a postion of having another border collie i will get in touch, we live on 12 acre farm with horses and sheep.

Although I am not in a position currently to offer one of your beautiful puppies a home, I have put your website onto my favourites page for when my circumstances change. I hope then you would consider me to be a suitable forever home for one of your pups. Your attitude to your dogs is so refreshing!

Hi there,

i must agree with everyone's comments. Your website shows just how much you care for your beautiful collies. I have just lost my beautiful Meg to cancer. She looked just like your dogs (Black & white). She was 10 years old and has left behind our 9 year old cross collie/labradore Taf feeling lonely. I have had a cnother collie before Meg, who was called Sally, she lived to a grand old age. My wife stays at home 7 days a week and like one of your other guests, we have a holiday home in Anglesey, where we used to take Meg & Taf. I am stil thinking of Meg everyday and feel if part of me died with her, so I'm going to wait a while before getting another Collie. You are just the type of breeder I would want to go to. It's fair to say that if i could have kept Meg longer, I would have done anything to do so, but sadly that was not to be

I am very impressed by your website, your beautiful dogs and the conditions that you lay down for prospective owners and when the time is right I will certainly be in touch with you as I would love one of your puppies. I have 3 Border Collies aged about 15/16 (he's a rescue so I'm not sure exactly how old he is), 12 and 3, and a GSD puppy who is 8 months now. They are all raw fed, my puppy is from a breeder who also raw feeds and is as dedicated as you sound - we have a facebook group for her puppy owners as well. I do/have done agility, heelwork to music, tracking and scentwork and a bit of obedience with my dogs and they all enjoy working (well except for my old boy who just enjoys eating, sleeping and his walks now!)

What a fabulous site.

It's quite evident that you are a breeder that really does care about the future home of the puppies and the welfare of the Sires and Dams alike. A very valuable commodity these days.

What a lovely website. Have enjoyed looking at all your family of collies, very happy pups and adults. We have had Border Collies for over 35 years and bred a couple litters whilst living in Scotland - what a wonderful experience. The one bitch we kept out of the second litter is still still with us, she will be 15 soon and apart from loss of hearing is extremely fit and lively for her mature years. I admire your rules regarding the sales of your puppies, making sure they have loving, suitable and "fore ever" homes. All the best .
