  • Bruno

    New Name: Dash
    Adopted 11/08/2022

    AZBCR alum Dash (fka Bruno) is doing well after his first week in his new home! Up-to-date on shots, fitting in with the fam, knows Sit and Down really well, plays fetch in the yard, and is working on his leash manners. All around sweet pup! So glad you’ve rescued us…

  • Dudley

    Adopted 11/08/2022

    He is incredibly smart. He has already picked up on the rituals and routines of the house. He mastered the dog door by day two. He is the biggest love bug and often uses me as his own personal teddy bear. He loves his toys and will often leave them scattered throughout the entire house. He loves ice cubes. This boy is up for EVERYTHING. He loves our older boy Everest who tolerates Huck's puppy energy. We will start agility training in the beginning of the year. I don't know if he'd be any good, but he just loves to please. Huckleberry is very photogenic and truly is the best dog ever and just so much fun. We love him so much! I have sent in his DNA and will everyone with the results when they arrive!

  • Brandi

    Adopted 10/29/2022

    She is absolutely the best little dog - smart, calm, and so stinking cute! Thank you for taking good care of her until we could find her!! She has been to scouting events, long walks, Halloween get togethers etc. she is living her best life and my kids are loving having some puppy energy around the house!

  • Bella Brown

    Adopted 10/16/2022

    Bella has a heart of gold to match her golden eyes. She quickly fell into our routine, gathered up Tansy's balls and frisbee and squeaky toys, and warmed up to our horses. In fact, she tries to get the horses to throw the ball for her as she leaves them by their feet. She soon inched her way into bed with us, sharing it with our elder Shih Tzu. She likes to lay between us on the bed when we watch tv placing a paw on each of our legs, claiming me mostly for herself. After my broken-nose surgery, she laid by my side for 10 days trying to lick my wounds comforting me. She loves car rides and is intrigued with the car wash. After I fully recover from my horse accident 10 mos ago, I hope to have her running by my side while riding. Oh, and she loves to talk up a storm and give us her sweet, gorgeous bedroom eyes when she knows she's been naughty, like stealing food off the counter when we're not looking or opening up doors.

  • Thelma

    Adopted 10/09/2022

    Thelma has gone off to live with other Border Collies and she'll get to learn to herd sheep. Happy life sweet girl.

  • Chevy

    Adopted 10/08/2022

    After a slight nudge from an observant stranger...It's official, Chevy IS a permanent member of this "former" foster family even as we pack to head to a new home. Which means, this little cowboy, along with his AZBCR alumni pals Ray and Bear, will have the run of a cool little "ranchette" in Ohio where there's meadows and woods with an adjacent creek... just as soon as we travel cross country to get there. In true herder fashion, maybe we'll even find a few other critters to round up along the way.

  • King

    New Name: Kike
    Adopted 10/08/2022

    We've had Kiké, (pronounced ,Key-Kay.) aka King, then Chip for just over 6 weeks, and he has fit in so wonderfully with our family. He was a bit nervous when he came to us, but he has quickly become part of the family. We have three rabbits, and he is very gentle with them. At first he didn't know what to make of them, but he is careful and lets them come up to him, as he is also very curious. He runs with Frank every single afternoon, and has made it over 3 miles without stopping! He has found his forever home, and we are all so grateful!

  • Cole

    Adopted 09/30/2022

    Another FOSTER FAIL joins the club. Cole is the sweetest puppy (as he currently is wrestling with Piper to start their morning). He plays well with our older girls and loves everyone. He snuggles and makes us laugh and smile so much. We are excited to start puppy classes with him and get into agility (our first time trying agility, so it’ll be a new adventure).

  • Cayde

    Adopted 09/27/2022

    Cayde arrived into foster care with a very active seizure disorder and other medical issues that required treatments, a calmer household and ongoing support. His foster family (humans and AZBCR alumni, Moe) started to fall for this fun loving, goofy boy. After getting him through many vet visits and one emergency care treatment for a bad seizure, it was decided that we were a great match for Cayde. Cayde was a Foster fail on October 2, 2022 and has been improving every day. Cayde will be helping his brother, Moe, support future AZBCR fosters in the upcoming years and he is excited about his new role as a "foster big brother".

  • Kona

    New Name: Selene
    Adopted 09/17/2022

    Kona hit the jackpot!!!!! She has picked a wonderful family to call her own. Watch for her competing in the junior handler agility.

  • Tio

    New Name: Sunka
    Adopted 09/13/2022

    Sweet Tio (now Sunka) went to his furever home today. A wonderful dog dad Thom, who had previously adopted way back in 2009. We are so excited for his next chapter!

  • Aria

    Adopted 09/10/2022

    Aria is home and settling in nicely. She did very well on the ride home thanks to my neighbor and friend (the dog whisperer) who held her while I drove. I’m very excited to have Aria and excited about our new adventures! Thank you AZBCR for this tremendous blessing!

  • Ray

    Adopted 08/23/2022

    Ray was originally adopted from AZBCR eleven years ago and returned to the rescue when his family had to move without him. At 13+ years old he is truly a wise and gentle soul who wasn’t with us for even a week as a foster when it was decided that he is part of our family and staying for good. He is our second foster fail/win in our almost 4 years with AZBCR after almost 30 foster pups coming through the door. Ray, Rayman, Ray Ray, Raymundo is living the very best retirement life, losing some excess weight and getting around pretty well these days. He enjoys daily walks, rides and rounding up members of his new pack in the backyard while sometimes playing tug and chasing squeaky toy tosses at his leisure. We sure love him as if he’s always been here…always will.

  • Bria

    New Name: Sabrina
    Adopted 08/21/2022

    This is Sabrina (formerly Bria). She’s the last of the Truth or Consequences 19. She came here last weekend with a volunteer who drove all the way from Anthem to Hereford to bring her to me. Bria had been in board and train for nearly two months. Thanks to her working her magic, Sabrina has moved past her issues and is ready to start her new life. She’s been reunited here with her half brother/cousin Banjo, and they are having so much fun! I adopted Banjo because I’d always wanted a puppy. Now I have three, all 6 months old! My life is crazy right now, but the best kind of crazy. They are an absolute joy! Welcome Sabrina! You are officially part of the family!

  • Kirby

    Adopted 08/20/2022

    And just like that....he's off to his new home! Kirby was adopted yesterday! His new mom is a retired lady who's already in love with him, even though it will take him some time to warm up to her. He'll have all the time in the world to get comfortable with her and learn the ropes of being a loved doggie. Happy life sweet boy!

  • K.C.

    New Name: Kaycee
    Adopted 08/16/2022

    K.C. has been adopted! He's got a great new mom that will take him on lots of walks. He'll get to go to the beach and the temperatures will be much cooler. Happy life to this sweet boy.

  • Jackie

    Adopted 08/13/2022

    Jackie has been in her forever home in the mountains for five weeks now. She loves her stuffed toys, her bully sticks, her hikes, her bed and her people. She just had her teeth cleaned, she's gained three pounds, and the vet has said she doesn't need Valley Fever medicine anymore. She came to us at a hard time. We lost a beloved border collie unexpectedly in July, and we have another dear border collie on hospice care. Jackie is such a joy and a comfort. She is a wonderful girl. I just talk to her and tell her what I want, and she does it. She is so loving to all of us, and she's good to our old girl. I am so grateful for all the good people who saved Jackie from the awful situation she was in and brought her to her home with us. We'll make sure that all her days are happy ones.
