    Dogs available for adoption

    On this web site you will find Borders available for adoption. We hope you will consider adopting one of these special little dogs that are in need of a loving home





    Phoebe is a purebred 6 year old spayed female Border Terrier. She is recently updated on vaccines including Rabies. She has been tested and is heart worm negative. She is on Heart Guard monthly. She is not on flea preventative as I do not have fleas.

    She is a sweet girl with all people, but little kids, toddlers and such make her nervous. She is also not a fan of cats. When I brought her home she was VERY aggressive to other dogs, she did not make contact, as she was not allowed the chance. However, she was living with another spayed female mix at her previous home in complete harmony. They got along well. She appears to not mind others next to her box, I have not tried her again with another dog.

    She had not been crated in her past home, so I have trained her to the crate. She now leaps into her box happy to be in her den. She is not a crafter, she loves her beds and blankets and will not chew them up.

    She loves to play and can toss her own toys. She is great on the leash and has learned not to pull. She adores the car and is a wonderful traveler. She will potty on leash easily.

    I was told she had skin allergies, but after changing her diet to a quality food, I have not seen any issues. She was having problems with slimy hair, but the food change has helped that also. I have her on coconut oil and kelp. She was shaved at her previous home, but could go back to being stripped if you choose.

    I feel that a single dog home is her best bet. A home with limited exposure to little kids would be best, but with her crate and a quiet space, that could help visits that may happen for a very conscious terrier owner. She would be great for a senior, retired family. She does love to couch sit and snuggle. She is located near Austin, central Texas. Possible transport from Texas west to California.

    If you are interested in adopting Phoebe, please complete an application.

    Cookie Face


    Cookie Side

    This is a courtesy listing for a dog under care of the Charleston [SC] Animal Society, being fostered by Lisa Smithers. As such, NATBW cannot verify the following description.

    Cookie is a 4 years (female) old Border Terrier and has a very, very sweet, gentle, and affectionate temperament. She has been spayed and has had all her shots. She is also heartworm negative and on heartworm preventative.

    Cookie has not had a great life in that her veterinary care was very neglected. She has a chronic ear infection in her left ear which is now being treated. Who knows how long she has had it but she scratched so much that her left ear is somewhat scarred. She has responded very well to the prescribed ear drops and has stopped itching.

    Cookie also has food allergies and is on medication for that as well. She has a prescription shampoo and has responded well to Wellness Simple dog food.

    Cookie gets along with all dogs and is very good on the leash. She knows how to sit and come. She is house trained and is very good about it.

    She would be good around children 8 years old and up. You just have to go slow and be gentle with her. She may have been mistreated and is sensitive but will trust her owner once she gets to know them.

    Cookie needs to have a stable, calm home where the new owner will be committed to giving her veterinary care that she will potentially need. Cookie is located in Charleston, SC.
