Welcome to
   Before Border Collies, our family was involved in a variety of activities from church choir to an array of sports that
included softball, volleyball, karate, swimming, and showing our Arabian horses. As our children grew older and moved
on, we purchased our first Border Collie, RiverRun's BoAnna TDI CGC. And yes, we were hooked. There is no dog that
compares to a Border!!

   We are a small breeder of Border Collies with exceptional qualities. We are committed to breeding dogs with
outstanding temperaments, sound structure, and good health. As a result of our commitment, we produce beautiful,
smart, and healthy dogs that excel at anything, and everything!  But above all else, they are the
ultimate loving pet.
