Meet Brisby...

Mr Blue Brisby aka 'Brisby' is registered with the ABCA (American Border Collie Association). He is 3 years old and weighs 55 pounds and has a beautiful blue merle coat and striking blue eyes. He carries one copy of the M allele of the PMEL merle gene (size 270). This simply means that there is a very good chance that he will pass his good looks on to his puppies! Brisby came to us when a dear friend asked if we knew of anyone that would like to rehome a young Border Collie. He was lovingly known as "Snow" and simply needed a home with the freedom and room to stretch his legs....and boy does he ever! My husband has always wanted a Border Collie and we live on 15 acres in the middle of Amish country so.... it worked out perfectly. Brisby is not only one of the smartest and most athletic dogs that I have ever been around, but he is definitely one of the sweetest!  Although he is not treat motivated, he will do absolutely anything for attention and hugs. You could almost say he is 'sweet to a fault'! That doesn't mean that he lacks the well known herding instinct that Border Collies are famous for...he loves his horses. He has a natural, intimidating crouch and intense stare and is still learning commands and self control around the herd. In the future I would love for him to further his herding skills and learn agility, but for now his job title remains that of loving companion!
