Border Collie pups
Rare opportunity to get yourself a top bred collie pup. Both parents are incredible. There genuinely top class and can be shown working.
Only 1 male puppy available
His parents are Jacksie (9 years old) and Becket (6 years old) who are working dogs on our dairy farm in Cork. Pups were bred to keep their bloodline on the farm.
A good working dog makes an incredible companion.
The pups have a great temperament and have massive interest in working. This makes training half the battle.
Parents have great temperaments - we have 2 young children - one who is aged 2 whom we cannot keep her away from them 😉.
Whilst we'd love to see them secure a working home I'm sure they'd adapt to a life of leisure.
If you can offer a loving and caring home please get in contact for more details.
Tips for contacting sellers
- Keep communication through our messaging system for as long as possible.
- Choose carefully what information you share about yourself in your messages. Do share info if you have a garden, young kids, or other suitable information to help the seller know you are a suitable buyer.
- Report suspicious activity to your local Garda Station and via the Report ad button.
- We recommend you print or save a copy of this page for your records in case the ad is updated / closed.
Tips for purchasing a puppy
- Ask sellers to provide an ID (driver's licence / passport) and take note of their contact details. You will also need to provide the same & a proof of address to transfer the microchip to your name.
- Note microchip IDs posted here (987000010030380, 987000010029665, 987000010029277) and check the microchip certificates (important) when you visit to make sure they match and the sellers details are on the certificate too (see example microchip certificates).
- Do not purchase a dog without seeing a microchip certificate. It is illegal to sell a dog without a microchip that's fully registered (info).
- Ask to see mother of puppies.
- Make sure the puppy is 8 weeks before taking ownership of the dog (closer to 10-12 weeks is even better).
- See puppies in their home environment.
- Do not purchase a dog from a seller in a parking lot or other business location.
- Ask sellers about the vet who has taken care of the dogs. Ask for the dog's vaccination certificate(s).
- Use our contract template www.dogs.ie/contract or another as a basis for a written contract & ask for a written receipt.
- It's best not to bring young kids to first meetings, to avoid disappointment in the case you decide not to buy a dog.
