Here's our story - Our family lost our dog to cancer in August of this year. We had him for 14 years. After he was gone, it was difficult to go anywhere in our house without having some memory of him. We decided that we wanted another dog with some of the same features and characteristics of him.
Shadow was a Border Collie mix that we found at our neighborhood Humane Society. We, of course, went there first, but they had no puppies. We started looking on the internet thru our local newspaper, and came across a group of puppies from ARC Border Collie Rescue (ARCBCR). We went to their website to learn more about the organization, decided to fill out and application and see what would happen.
We were not sure if the puppies were still available or even if we would hear from anyone. But the next day we had an e-mail from Chuck who said that the next step in the process was for him to come out to our house for a home visit. He did, we were approved, and then we received an e-mail from Sandy, asking us to come to see the puppies.
