Adoption Guidelines

  1. We do not ship our Collies.  Approved adopters must come to Texas to adopt their collies.

  2. Applicants must have a consistent vet history for their pets, without lapses in heart worm preventative. 

  3. We require a secure, fenced yard for exercise and elimination (no invisible fences). Collies require space to exercise. We will consider adopting to those living in an apartment or town home where on leash walking is required. We will matched these adopters with a more mature collie who does not require the same level of exercise as a young puppy.

  4. Unless the potential adopter is currently showing their other resident dogs in conformation or performance sports, all resident dogs and cats must be spayed or neutered.

  5. Our Collies are adopted as indoor companions.  We do not allow them to be kept exclusively in the yard or in outside pens or in the garage. Collies are very social dogs, that like to be with their humans. They do not do well separated from them. In addition, Texas weather is brutal, and the weather can change in only a few minutes. Add to that the danger of neighbors who don't want to be bothered by barking, meter readers who don't latch the gate properly, toxic plants, critters who find their way into the yard. Outside by themselves is not the place for a Collie. 

  6. BECAUSE OF THE DISTANCE INVOLVED, AND THE ABILITY TO DO A GOOD HOME CHECK, WE ONLY ADOPT OUR COLLIES OUT TO FAMILIES LOCATED IN TEXAS, OKLAHOMA, AND LOUISIANA.
