As at Tuesday, 2nd March 2021, there are NO puppies available at Dreamwood Border Collies and NO planned litters.
Owning a new puppy is a life-changing experience - Not unlike bringing home a newborn child. Who would think of spending happy hours with their newborn during the holidays, then leaving it alone for 10 hours a day when they return to work?
We love our puppies and want to see them join families who will respect and care for them - as long as they live.
Please note that we have only seen Black & White, or Red & White, from our Litters.
If you are looking for Chocolate, Merle, Sable, Tri or any other colour, please look for Border Collie Breeders on the Dogs NSW or DogzOnline websites.
If you wish to discuss a future puppy, please get in touch with Donna via the Contact Form.
A word of WARNING when you are looking for a puppy!
Puppies have Mothers, and reputable Breeders care for their Mothers, as much as they care for their Puppies.
The Government cares too - the Animal Welfare Code of Practice - Breeding dogs and cats (Para 10.1.1.9) (Page 27) states that:
"Bitches must not have more than two litters in any two year period, unless with the written approval of a veterinary practitioner"
This does NOT mean three (3) litters in less than 12 months. Don't think that happens? Just check out Facebook.
So when you contact a Breeder, who assures you their puppies are well cared for, socialised, blah, blah - ask them...
"How many litters has the Mother had - and when?"
See the Litter List for past Dreamwood litters.
