Faddle the Border Collie Puppy ~ Adopted

Faddle the Border Collie Puppy ~ Adopted
I love the teardrop on her forehead

Faddle is one of a litter of five Border Collie puppies that we rescued from Gordon County Animal Control.  It was a close call, but we succeeded in getting them out, and I am so glad!

These are lovely puppies.  I estimate that they were born in early March.  They came to me very thin but well socialized, so I suspect that whoever had them cared for them but couldn’t afford to keep them.  I wonder, when they left them at the shelter,  did they had any idea how poor their chances of adoption were?

Posing in the garden

Faddle is a smooth coated Border Collie. To help identify her easily in group photos, I gave her an orange collar. She is very lovely, with a tear-shaped white mark on her forehead and white socks on her front legs.  Her ears are almost all the way up and I suspect will settle in an upright position.

Faddle is being fostered in Winter Park. You can enjoy many photos of her in her photo album. If you think that you might want to give her a forever home, please first review our Dog Tips page and then read our Adoption Process and e-mail

Faddle is elegant

Today Courtney came to play. She is the young lady who drove this litter from Atlanta to my home. We had such a nice afternoon, talking and rubbing puppy bellies! At one point she decided to see if the puppies would like to play with a rope toy. The answer was an unqualified “YES!”


June 14th Update:

Those ears are officially up!

Faddle is doing great.  When she first came she tended to go off and do her own thing, but now she is all about attention.  I was just sitting outside and who was the first puppy to come running and jump in my lap?  Oh yeah, Faddle!  Her ears are straight up now, giving her a very distinguished, mature look.  As with all the puppies, I’ve switched her to all homemade food.  Andi Brown, who adopted our Jangle, gave me copy of her book, The Whole Pet Diet, and it has changed my world.   Eating chicken stew every day, stirring in Halo’s Dream Coat, and occasionally adding yogurt, alfalfa, and liver, has filled her out beautifully.  It might be my imagination, but I think her coat has even gotten a bit longer since I started feeding her this food!

Ralph is my Basset/Lab mix (he looks like a lab until he stands up and nothing happens), and he simply adores puppies.  Always has.  When we go to the dog park, Gus, my Basset/Bulldog, runs and plays with the big dogs, but not Ralph.  He seeks out the smallest dog and licks it to pieces.  He should have been a girl!  So here it is,the day before Fathers’ Day, and Ralph is in his element, playing with puppies.  You’ll enjoy this!

I’m puppysitting GinGin and Caboose, two puppies that were born in my closet last June.  I just love when I get to see my babies after they grow up.  The haven’t been around  whole lot of other dogs, so this has been a bit of a stretch for them.  See how Faddle encourages them to play.  Too cute!

Going home!

July 2nd:

Today was the big day!  Faddle has found her forever home.  Jeff is looking forward to having a running buddy, James and Cory are anticipating training her with a Frisbee, and Crystal knows she’ll sleep better knowing there is a dog in the house!  Faddle?  Well, she’s just excited to have a family to call her own!
