FOSTER OR ADOPT Bobbie is a border collie x approx 17 weeks of age, She has had her first vaccination, wormimg and deflea and will be adopted with a desexing contract arranged in advance.

A foster home would be provided with all support, food etc. Her foster home would need to be local to Manawatu/Whanganui or as far as the Kapiti area.

Bobbie’s home must have good fencing, a safe secure place for her to be while you are out, and someone home most of the day. ARAN dogs cannot be chained to kennels or left for long periods home alone. All ARAN dogs must sleep indoors.

Bobbie would make a great addition to an active, loving family who want an enthusiastic friend to include in their adventures. Border collies are super intelligent and need time and attention, exercise and training to be the best dog. Not suitable as family pet for toddlers and small children, but ideal for older kids and teens.

Our adoptions start with a two week trial period, to make sure the dog is a good fit for you. If things don’t work out they return to their foster home.

Bobbie will be de-sexed, vaccinated, microchipped and registered and is up to date with flea/worm treatments.

There is an adoption fee of $300 to contribute towards these costs. This heavily subsidised adoption fee is approx 50% of what you would otherwise pay to have a new puppy fully vetted and desexed, registered and chipped.

The first step if you are interested in adopting is to fill out an online adoption application which you can do here:
