North American Border Terrier Welfare


Jake is a 7 yr old neutered male that is currently in the Boulder, CO area in the USA.
He used to live as a country dog with 20 acres to walk and run on with his owners.
He has not adjusted well to suburban life with only a small back yard. He has become territorial with dogs walking by the front of his house and has been known to bust out and go after other dogs.
He is more reactive with dogs that are aroused when they hear him barking, but is relaxed around other dogs. He has basic obedience training, but was reactive to some other dogs in class. He has been diagnosed with anxiety.
We feel that Jake would do well with an experienced dog owner who will be able to give him exercise and direction, and perhaps some directed training in interactive activities.
Jake needs to be an ONLY dog, and NO cats or small critters in the house.

If you are interested in Jake please fill out and submit an NABTW adoption application.

Contact: NABTW to enquire about any other rescues they may have available
or visit their FaceBook page. You can also complete an email application here that will be sent to NABTW

If you feel you may have a home for a rescue Border, do not let distance dissuade you from making contact. If it is determined through communication and referrals that the right home is not a local home, NABTW, CBTW and Border Terrier rescue volunteers Nationwide will work together to help transport the lucky little dog to his/her forever home.

Others in need of a Home......

If you are ready to make the commitment to adopt a needy pup, adult or senior "NOW" and are willing to forego the possibility of a Border Terrier in favour of a purebred of another breed, a terrier mix or a simple mutt who desperately needs a "forever home", we urge you to visit www.petfinder.com
They list thousands of deserving dogs on their site and we are confident you will find just the companion you are searching for.
