Puppy Information


We take special care of our puppies. They are handled and played with from the day they are born. Nightshades puppies are family raised and kept inside until they are old enough to venture outside. The puppies are great for our grandchildren and our grandchildren are great for the puppies. Our grandchildren have learned to be kind and gentle to puppies and other animals, and the puppies grow up being loved and played with by both children and adults.  Our goal is for the puppies to be happy, well-socialized, and healthy. Nightshades Border Collies specializes in intelligent, eager to please, and loving border collies.  

For those who are looking for more than a family companion, we have puppies that are suited for a variety of purposes.  Pedigrees include conformation show champions, obedience champions, flyball champions, agility champions, and herding champions.  All our dogs are registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC).  Nightshades Ranch puppies are making names for themselves  all across the United States.  Many are competing successfully in agility, flyball, conformation, obedience, and dock diving.  Several are therapy, medical alert, and rescue dogs.  And all are super companions for their owners.

Nightshades Border Collie puppies come with a health guarantee. Puppies are on a regular de-worming and vaccination schedule.  Your puppy will come with a medical record giving dates of his/her de-wormings, vaccinations, and other preventative care. We ask that you please take your new puppy to your own veterinarian for a health examination and to continue his/her vaccinations and de-worming on a regular schedule.

Shipping is available for an additional $395 to $445, depending on the airline, within the continental United States. We can also ship to Alaska but shipping costs will be higher for shipping into those areas.  At this time for those in Canada wanting puppies, we can ship to a city in the United States close to the border.  We will provide the documents necessary to take your puppy through customs from the U.S. into Canada.   Puppies are usually shipped with Pet Safe on either United Airlines or American Airlines. They have always been very good about taking the utmost care of our puppies so they arrive safe and sound. Occasionally, we are able to ground ship puppies to provide a more personal touch. We like to meet the new owners and transfer the puppy directly to your loving hands when we can.  All costs for shipping must be paid before the puppy is shipped.

We ask for a $300 non-refundable deposit to hold a puppy until it is ready to be shipped or picked up. If a puppy has been paid for in full and the buyer is unable to take the puppy, we will re-sell the puppy for them. Once the puppy is re-sold, we will refund the buyer that purchase price minus the $300 non-refundable deposit and any expenses incurred, if any. If shipping costs have been paid, those will be refunded in total minus any expenses incurred.



Puppy Pack

Nightshades Ranch puppies each come with their own personal puppy pack. This includes

- Medical Record. This includes the parasite prevention program with dates the puppy was given treatment and the type used and his/her vaccination schedule. All puppies are vaccinated against the parvo virus at 4  to 5 weeks of age. Two weeks later, puppies receive a DA2PPv puppy vaccination to help prevent distemper, adenovirus type 2, hepatitis, parainfluenza, and parvo virus and those dates are provided on the medical record.
