Alamar's Border Collies

Alamar is dedicated to the working Border Collie with excellent health, structure, temperament, and herding ability. Our dogs are screened for hip displasia, eye problems, and herding ability. Alamar believes the only true test of herding ability is actual work. We breed for herding ability, not the "hobby-type" activities that sadly dilute the working ability of the American Working Border Collie.The dogs work sheep, goats, or cattle regularly. They compete regularly in herding trials as well as work in animal assisted therapy. Puppies available occasionally.

Alamar begins evaluating puppies early to ensure they are matched with the best working situation for each puppy and family.  These are two puppies from Joe and Shotsey their first time on stock at 7 weeks. Click here to view video by Kathy Mazzola.

Joe has come home to us after spending the first 2 years of his life in what turned out to be a less than ideal situation. He is a 40 pound dog with a heart of gold and the working ability to match. He is turning out to be a wonderful addition to the Alamar Line up!

Alamar’s Texas Tea "Jethro"

“Alamar’s Texas Tea” has returned to us from his first home when his owner no longer had time to work him. He and Alan are becoming a team as Alan does some re-training with him to build his confidence. Jethro is the spittin’ image of his dad, Joe and shares his intensity and drive to work. He is a powerful dog that has no fear and will work cattle as well as sheep and goats. He has tons of presence and does not give up. Couple all this with a disposition that is as sweet as they come and you have our snuggle-bug, Jethro.

Alamar's Little Gem

Pearl is a prick eared female out of Melissa Winter's Carli and our Spur.  She is a strong, high energy girl with tons of presence.  She adapts easily to different types of stock and is proving to be a welcome addition to the Alamar line up!

Alamar's Chip Off The Ol' Block PT HSAS

Pebbles has returned to us after a short stay elsewhere. She is in training again and should be debuting in the fall in Started. Pebbles was born September 13th, 2009. She is a split faced, black and white girl with the sweetest disposition we have ever seen on a BC. Pebbles is from the last litter Rosie had with Rab. She likes all dogs and people and is kind to her stock. She is fast and intense and has a naturally wide cast. She is working on rating her stock and does a great job of keeping her stock where she wants them. Hopefully in time she will live up to her legacy of her herding Champion mom and dad!

       
 

This is the first litters Alamar has had in several years but they just keep getting better and better!
