Date of Birth: January 2020

Collie cross. Rusty was adopted but sadly returned as his owner has fallen ill and can no longer care for him. He is very playful, but rough, so should ideally be homed with a female of similar size (or bigger). We would also prefer a home with older or no kids as well as an experienced dog home. He is not a first-time kinda dude.



Stray, rescued, or unwanted Collies are taken in by Border Collie Rescue and undergo a thorough assessment and rehabilitation period before being re-homed. Additionally, the organization actively assists individuals in rehoming their Border Collies, ensuring a vetted process and suitable homes for the dogs.

The adoption fee is R1500.00 (R2500.00 for puppies) and includes the sterilisation (for puppies mandatory at 6 months), inoculations (for puppies one or two depending on age and time with us), microchipping and deworming of the Border Collie.

The decision to specialize in Border Collies stems from the observed negative effects of confining these energetic dogs in kennels. The rescue was established in 1998 to provide a safe haven where Border Collies could be kept in open spaces, preventing the detrimental effects of kennel confinement.
