At times we will have an older puppy, a young adult or a retired show champion
that may be available to a special home.

It is hard for us to part with any of our adult dogs, and we don't place them often. 
We usually place with people we know and we have been talking to about a dog for some time.

In order to maintain a small kennel with all of our collies spending time
living in the house and getting the hands-on time they deserve, we have to keep our numbers low.

We have spent countless hours loving, raising, training and showing them.
When we place them, we place a small part of our hearts as well.
Please expect to be thoroughly screened, as only the best homes will do.

Often times our adults have families waiting prior to retirement.
If you are interested in an adult collie please contact us.
Retired show dogs make wonderful family pets. They are usually between 2-5 years in age,
current on routine care and good with other dogs.
They are crate-trained, house-broken and have traveled extensively.
They have been exposed to all the world has to offer and been heavily socialized.

Please fill out our Puppy/Collie Questionnaire, which is located on our “Litter” page, so that we can know more about you and your family and what type of home you would have for one of our Riverrun Collies.

Thank you!

"Maya" is now owned and loved by Katherine Nickel and her family of Massachusetts.

A lovely e-mail from the Nickel family...

Dear Mary,
A small update on little Maya.  She is doing beautifully.  The car ride went really well. (she seemed to actually enjoy the whole thing)  She learned yesterday in about an hour how to come to her name, walk on a leash, tell us when we wanted to go to the bathroom, what not to chew (ie our fingers).  We worked on crate training.  and as of right now, I'd say she's almost completely crate trained.  That's all in 36 hours.  She's just as kind and gentle, sweet tempered and calm as at your house.  She's not a nervous little thing.  WOW
She's been accompanied by Antonio Corelli's Concertos all day long today...a little culture goes a long way!!
Thank you again for such a wonderful being.  She is beautiful in so many ways.!!
With deep gratitude,


Mow the lawn  -  or play with puppies ???     It was a very easy decision :)
