Would you look at this precious face! This sweet boy is Bolt and he is ready to meet his new family. Bolt is a 6 month old border collie who is deaf, but is quickly learning sign language. He knows basic cues such as sit, down, stay, focus, and is learning to walk nicely on a leash. House training is going well. He is UTD on vaccines, but is not neutered yet. Bolt is full of energy and will need an active family with older kids to keep up with him. Because of his deafness he does have some nuisance barking, so wouldn't be a good fit for apartment living. If you are interested in Bolt please go to our website and submit an application for consideration. He is being fostered in Zuni, Va.

If you have ever wanted a living, breathing border collie that is a-OK being practically plastered to you as you go about your daily life, who loves to play with anything and everything, and who has a personality to match his handsome good looks, you're in luck - we found Buddy for you! Buddy is a six year old male border collie who weighs about 55 pounds, and is a big guy with a big personality. He was originally turned into a shelter in West Virginia for herding children - so we know this guy has some herding instinct, like a typical border collie. He was such a staff favorite that they reached out to us to help him get out of the shelter because he really hated it, and indeed, he still doesn't like being crated much - he'd much rather follow you around or chill in the house - but his sweet and soft personality has won him quite the fan club, both human and canine alike. Buddy is the very definition of a Very Good Boy. He loves to play with anything and everything, but squeaker toys are his favorite. In fact, the clever boy uses his elite soccer skills to tell you that he's hungry - he'll flip and play with his food dish all over the kitchen (complete with big, longing looks at you) until you put some food in it! He loves balls, though he does need the tougher balls like Kong as opposed to tennis balls. Want a friend to play fetch with in the yard? Buddy's your guy - he LOVES to chase. Getting the ball away from him is kind of a task, but we are sure that he could master this pretty quickly with some basic training. Buddy is up to date on vaccinations and neutered, and he is heartworm negative. He is a bit choosy when it comes to his canine companions that he will play with, and prefers playful females, but has gotten along just fine with males too. He is excellent with cats and likes to give them a quick sniff before passing by. Because of his past of herding kids, he will only be placed in a home with children over age 12. He is housetrained and crate-trained (though he's not a big fan of the crate!) and likes to be brushed and handled. We would recommend a basic obedience class to help you bond with Buddy as he is VERY food motivated! Buddy sleeps in the bedroom with other dogs and prefers to be under a chair or a desk when sleeping. We think maybe he was an outside dog at least part of the time, but now that he's learned where the sofa is, he LOVES to be inside! He walks well on a leash once you remind him that pulling is not polite. Buddy loves to smile and snuggle with people, and will gently remind you that he's waiting to be petted by nudging your arm or hand. He is extremely trainable, like all border collies, and enjoys being with his people most of all. If you're looking for your own Very Good Boy, please submit an application for Buddy! SOHO is a 501c3 registered non-profit. We do require that your own animals are up to date on vaccines and heartworm preventative, and titering records are acceptable in lieu of vaccination.

Are you ready for a border collie mix that brings a new meaning to "cuddlebug"? If you are, you should meet Frankie. Frankie came to us pretty skinny and neglected, but still loving and kind to people. Even though it was clear he hadn't had the best start, he still looked to people for love and affection. Of course, we helped him gain weight and his foster-mom has been taking him to obedience class! It's pretty handy when you have a dog already house-trained, leash-trained, and knowing some basic commands, and with a clever guy like Frankie, we are sure he can learn many more. He's also very toy and food motivated, which makes it doubly easy to teach him new things. But of course... humans are really his favorite thing and he'd love to cuddle up next to you on the couch more than anything else. Frankie loves to play with his dog friends and would like a home with another dog to play with as long as his mom or dad doesn't mind him being a little choosy at first. He's super with other dogs but may chase a cat that will run from him. He has already been neutered and is up to date on shots and heartworm prevention. Frankie is being fostered in Zuni, VA and is ready to find his forever family. Please follow the application link to apply to adopt Frankie. Applications must be submitted in order to be considered for adoption. Your current pets must be up to date on vaccinations and heartworm prevention for your application to be considered. Titering is accepted in lieu of vaccination records. Please go to our website at saveourherdersoutreach dot org or email us at saveourherdersoutreach at gmail dot com for questions about Frankie.

ATTENTION, ATTENTION!!!!!!!! My name is Jasper Mcfluffbutt and I am looking for my PERFECT family. What is the perfect family you ask? Well, I would love a fur-sister that I can run around and play with. My family also needs to be active. I love hiking and using my sniffer. Foster mom is teaching me and my sister how to use the sniffer to find food in a box, and she says I am something called "super-trainable" and "smart". I think it’s fun and mom calls it nose work. I also tried some called agility and I LOVED that. Running around and jumping over things?!? How is that not fun?! Foster mom says I’m a natural and can really go places. I mean, I’m down to go places to do the jumps. After a long day of sniffing or running or jumping, I like to cuddle with my foster mom. She says that after an active day, I am super-cuddly and love to lounge on the couch. I’ve never meet these tiny humans mom calls kids but I get super excited when I meet new people that I herd them and sometimes jump on them. Mom says old kids would be fine but my new family must have herding dog experience. I also need to go to obedience classes because who doesn’t love learning?! I mean come on! I’m a border collie after all. I am a good boy in my crate and I go the bathroom outside. My foster mom says I have to also tell you I’m about 30lbs of pure manly muscle, and I take my flea and tick medication and heartworm medication every month like a good boy. So I sound absolutely perfect right?! I know, so go put in an application so foster mom can call you and talk to you about the best dog in the WORLD, MEEEEE!!!! Jasper is a 10 month male neutered old border collie mix. He is up to date on vaccines and is on monthly heartworm and flea and tick preventive. He needs an active family with no children and no cats. He loves dogs and will be required to be enrolled in positive reinforcement training when adopted. He adopter will also need to have herding dog experience. In order to be considered for adoption, your current pets will need to be up to date on vaccinations and heartworm preventative, though titering evidence is accepted in lieu of vaccination.

Her name is Lola. She is a cute girl. She has white feathers in her tail! She will sometimes dance to Copacobana! Lola came from a small rural shelter, where Animal Control picked her up one too many times. She is resourceful, and an adolescent so when she got bored at home,she would escape. She is very curious about sights, smells, motion but has not tried to escape the fenced yard. But she will need a safe place to run and sniff. This beautiful, affectionate little girl wants nothing more than to be near her human(s) and dog friend(s), to have fun exploring and running and learning new tricks. Tricks equal treats!! And its so much fun to learn! Lola is quickly settling in to her foster home. She is house trained(crazy huh?) and crate trained. She walks well on a leash, loves to explore. She tolerated a bath the day she was pulled from the shelter. Chalk that up to her loving to be touched and petted.We are working on basic manners, 4 paws on the floor, sit, down, hand touches. The find it game is a favorite. Lola has figured out “toys’’. She likes to bounce her Kong and chew on her Nylabone. When she first arrived she had little interest in food but she is now all paws in on positive reinforcement games and cues! Lola would do well in a home with another dog as long as the dog loves to run and jump and play games.An older confident dog that understands the herding game would be ideal.Her best fit would be an active home where her energy would be understood as part young dog and part herder. When we’re spending me time together, she is a velcro dog, follows me around, happy to help with the chores. Did I say she’s curious? Resilient? So happy to see people and other dogs? And adorable. Funny. Gives the best kisses. Want the best dog? Apply here! Lola is located in Greensboro, NC. If you would like to submit an adoption application, please go to our website www.saveourherdersoutreach.org/adoptable-dogs.html and click on Lola's photo. An adoption application MUST be submitted to be considered for adoption, without exception. Your pets must be up to date on heartworm prevention and vaccinations in order to be considered for adoption; titering is accepted in lieu of vaccine records.

Who wants a large, white forever-puppy made of sunshine and joy? Would you look at this extremely happy boy! This is Wally, a one-year old double-merle pup who is our special-needs love bug. Wally is deaf and experiences some sight impairment, but he has never let that slow him down any or distract him from his primary purpose of being with the people he adores. This guy absolutely ADORES people (and food, but mostly people), and wants to be a part of your life. His happiness and enthusiasm is boundless and he always has the biggest smile on his face! Wally came to us from a shelter in North Carolina, where he was found as a stray and then - surprise! - turned out to be deaf. He was placed with a foster who is a professional dog trainer for training and socialization. We know he can see shapes and light, but do not know how much detail he can see. His depth perception is lacking and will need help getting into and out of vehicles. He has learned sign language, but it needs to be performed close to his face. We have worked on recall and attention with a vibrating collar that works with a manual remote. Wally is house and crate trained. He walks well on a leash and has learned some basic obedience skills. He is good with other dogs and cats. Wally does have some food aggression and would need to be fed in a crate, but that's a small price to pay for the kind of love and adoration that just emenates from this boy like sunshine. Because of his deafness, he has some nuisance barking when he's alone and can't sense his people, therefore he wouldn't be suitable for apartment living. Wally wants nothing more then to be with his person. He is UTD on vaccines, is heart worm negative, and neutered. He is 1 year old. Wally is available for adoption through saveourherdersoutreach.org. To qualify for adoption, you must have your own pets up to date on vaccines, heartworm preventative, and heartworm testing. Evidence of titering is accepted in lieu of a vaccination record. For questions about Wally, please e-mail saveourherdersoutreach at gmail dot com.
