Border Collie Rescue Heading


Having worked with, and fostered many a wonderful Rescue Border Collie (including BuzzSaw herself), we encourage anybody considering a Border Collie to seriously look into adopting. There are so many wonderful Border Collies needing love and ready to give their all to a family!

While we are supportive of Border Collie Rescues and the dedicated people who run them, please understand that we have not actually had personal experience with all of the Rescue groups listed. With each, you need to ask lots of questions, and verify answers you receive. "Save That Dog" is a book I have found useful that gives some tremendous information about the world of Dog rescue, whether you are looking to adopt, relinquish, or join a group.

The American Herding Breed Association
The American Herding Breed Association was founded in 1986 in response to the increasing interest in herding activities by owners of a wide variety of breeds. The AHBA was set up to help provide information in response to inquiries from those interested in herding and the herding breeds. The focus of the AHBA program is on practical herding work. While recognizing that many individuals will not be in a position to use their dogs daily in practical work, the AHBA desires nonetheless that herding be taken seriously and does not desire that it be viewed as a casual hobby. The AHBA has an interest in all aspects of herding and the herding breeds, and the investigation of canine behaviors which relate to herding ability.
