Our puppies are born in our home , often in front of a cozy fire if a cold night! Mama is fed ice cream and chicken during labor as her special treat ! Each pup will be checked and cleaned before giving back to mama to nurse. Their cords will be cleaned with a mild iodine solution and we check for any birth defects .
The pups will spend their first few weeks in our home with their mama , where they will be exposed to noises and children and other dogs.
Once they are moving about on their own, the pups and their mamas will go to one of our large puppy areas in our barn or sugar house. These pens are heated and have fans for comfort of the mama and babies. There are lots of toys and bones for them to chew on. They will be handled daily by adults and children.
Your new puppy will nurse for at least 6 weeks . He will begin eating a puppy food mash at 4 weeks to supplement the milk. We feed Diamond puppy food mixed with Hills Science Diet puppy canned food. Its okay to change feed, but do it slowly by mixing some of the Diamond in with your new food. We will provide you with food when you pick up your pup to last several days and to use for that transition to your food.
we purchase our vaccines from TSC . Your pup will get this Vaccine at 6 weeks old . He will need
a booster 3-4 weeks later and every 3-4 weeks afterwards until 16 weeks. After that, once a year is sufficient. You can give the vaccines yourself or have your veterinarian do it. Rabies needs to be given once a year, starting at 6 months. This must be done by your vet and at that time your pup can be licensed by the town.
Canine Spectra 5 Vaccine
Prevents Canine Distemper, Adenovirus Type 2 (CAV-2 cross protection CAV-1), Parainfluenza and Parvovirus Vaccine (MLV). Canine Spectra 5 Vaccine provides 5-way protection for any dog, including puppies and small breeds. Type 2b parvovirus provides rapid immunity and cross protection against all recognized field strains. High Titer, low passage.
Treat your puppy for worms at:
After your puppy is six months old they should be treated for worms at least once every three months for life.
Worms are one of the most common causes of serious illness in puppies, so it’s important to treat your puppy
We also suggest a heartworm treatment as well as flea treatment if needed. We like the chewable type.
I am sure you get lots of emails on your dogs, I feel it is important to let you know my experience so far with Ben, out of Uno and Ammo.
We have had 12 border collies on our sheep farm, over the last 45 years. At this stage, Ben is on track to be one of the best. Very smart, easy going, but loves his work every day. At 6.5 months , he understands his basic commands, come on a whistle, sit, stay, lie down, and go to his kennel. He just started to “ RUN” this week, and is getting ready for some serious training on the sheep.
He presently holds 55 ewes back while My wife and I put out the morning grain, drives straight away, gathers from the hill, and pens the flock at 6.5 months.
This breeding pair ,to me, is a great pair to market pups to farms who have serious work for them. I am so proud of his progress, and keen ability to listen to you with complete attention.
In the midst of this pandemic, you have helped bring much joy to our lives.
With much appreciation,
Dick Flies“Absolutely amazing dogs! Could not imagine my world without my border collie. So smart and beautiful dogs. Highly recommend to anyone looking for this breed to reach to Melissa. You won’t be disappointed!”
Buy your pups from EOT!! Breeder is extremely knowledgeable about the breed as well as her dogs specific linage and bloodlines. Produces a true Border Collie with a keen eye and great natural instincts! I have zero regrets about my boy Ronnie B. ❤️”
“I can’t say enough great things about EOT Border Collies.
Last September my husband and I lost our Moose a 13yr old Border Collie Very suddenly and I became so lost and very depressed (he was my best friend). I knew the only way to get out of my funk was to get a new Baby to love. I found EOT on Facebook and sent Melissa a message and explained what had happened. She was very kind and quickly added me to the list. Tho no puppies where due tell Dec ready in Feb i jumped on the Opportunity.
Melissa made sure to keep me posted from Birth all the way to the day we picked him up. She sent lots of pictures and updates on there progress. We made meet n greet arrangements she is very Accommodating
Fast Forward 6 months and Baloo is 100% mamas boy. Calm, sweet, Gentle and loving. Everything I would wanted in a dog. He love Everyone kids and animals a like.

Everyone that asks about him I tell them 100% hands down Melissa EOT Border collies. She is very knowledgeable of the breed and is still there for me if I have questions. She is truly a great person that knows what she is doing. And lastly she does not run a puppy mill. Her pups a part of her family.”
please see our google page or Facebook page for many more reviews. We want your family to feel confident that you will get the best dog and will be treated As family. I stand behind my pups , so you have nothing to worry about !
If you are ready to purchase a pup , please contact me by email or call or text me at 1 (603) 833-1767. I want to be sure a Border Collie will be a good match for your family . I'd then need your contact information ( cell number and email address) and a deposit of $400 to add you to my list. The total amount is $1500.
The deposit can be mailed by check or money order to : Melissa Abbott, 682 Kimball Road , Lunenburg VT 05906, or sent to my Zelle account- 603-833-1767. Please write check to my name , not the farm name. Once pups are around 4-6 weeks old, I will send videos to you and you can pick a pup or pass to another litter. At 8 weeks old you will pick up your new baby or have him/her delivered.
We offer ground shipping to anywhere in the USA !
My mom will deliver for a fee, which will depend on mileage, or you may hire a commercial shipper instead.
Your pup will need a health certificate, if traveling with a commercial shipper. ( an extra fee ) , and will need to be 8 weeks old. Your pup will be picked up at our home and delivered by van to your doorstep. Most shippers require half payment first , but some don’t require anything until you get your pup.
We also can provide you with names of shippers we have used in the past. It’s very simple, and we’ve never had any problems shipping pups. Cost is between $50- $1500 depending on location in USA.
Many people question if they can pick out their pup , visit, or play with their puppies before they are ready to go at 8-weeks-old. We have made the difficult decision that we must say ”No”.
There are several reasons why we will not let anyone around the new puppies between birth and 8 weeks –
First, it is stressful for the mom to have strangers visit as she is caring for her new litter. This in turn will put stress on the new born pups. Remember, you are one of many people (sometimes as many as 20) who are getting a puppy, not including everyone else who “just wants to peek at the new babies.” If we allow everyone to see, touch, or spend time with the new pups, the mom’s routine would be disrupted, she may become stressed and could become protective to strangers to protect her new pups.
Like a new baby, the opportunity for young pups to pick up infectious diseases is increased with all new contacts. Their immune systems are building, so at this time, the moms and pups live in whelping nests and are separate from all outside traffic. Most illnesses and diseases are innocently carried on people’s shoes and clothing. Entire litters of puppies can be wiped out within 48 hours by the puppy killer parvovirus. This disease could be picked up unknowingly by people in a school yard, a park, or on a sidewalk, and this is only one disease. We cannot risk exposing our dogs and your puppy to diseases that could destroy them.
A common misconception is that buyers think they can tell a pups personality by meeting them or that the puppy will bond with them if they come and visit. I’ve been raising these dogs for many years and have found that their personalities change as they age, and it’s hard to know what their character will be like as a puppy. I can best help you find the right pup by suggesting certain parents. If I have a dog that is high drive, then her pups will tend to be like her . But, like humans, they will also adapt to their environment as well.
We understand your excitement and we are happy that you are enthusiastic about getting your pup. But until you take your puppy home, we are responsible and the puppy’s health and safety is our priority.
Lastly, we have an extremely busy household. In the past we have only had one or two litters a year, but now that Missy is no longer training horses at this time, she has increased her dog pack , which means more work. It takes several hours per day to care for the dogs, answer emails, and keep up with the sites . Apart from the dogs, we also have 2 young children, a busy horse boarding business, as well as a furniture store ! Finding time to stop what we are doing and “meet and greet” new families is time consuming and cuts Into our time with our family. We love visitors, but if we allow one, we need to allow all, and that can be overwhelming when we have multiple litters . I will gladly take videos and photos or do FaceTime
We cannot grant requests for photos and videos other then when we choose to do so. We spend hours a day caring for our dogs and puppies , and we have emails, phone calls , and messages daily that also keep us busy. We know that you Are excited to see progress of your puppy growing and learning new things, and we will do our best to keep lots of videos and photos on our page for you To see!
Missy will post videos and photos on Facebook and the website as often as she is able , but please be mindful that she has toddlers as well as animals to care for.
We love all Border Collies and want to be sure they all have a forever family! If you are looking for an older dog , or a rescue, please let us know.
We give at least $100 from each puppy sale to a charity! Sometimes a local shelter, a missionary, or clothing for the needy, etc. We feel that since God has blessed us , it is only right to give back to him!
“In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive “

We Love using the wireless system by Pet Safe! This unit keeps your dog close to the home and keeps him safe from chasing things and animals ! It adjusts to different perimeters and is easy to use. There are no wires to bury and it takes minutes to install And only a day or two for training ! ( I can train a dog to it in about an hour!)
A crate will be his special place to go to be alone or sleep or be kept safe when not being watched. Also a great tool for potty training!
We like to use stainless dishes from ”Midwest “ company, that screw onto the crate. They can’t be dumped !
These are great! If you leave your dog in his crate overnight , this is a great way to offer him water.
Border Collies love to play! Make sure you have lots of toys to offer them . They especially love tennis balls and frisbee!
Real Bones, not rawhide, are best ! Bones keep them busy and are great for their teeth.
A good fitting collar is important. Most pups are 8-10 pounds when they go home. Your puppy can learn to walk on a leash as soon as you get him home. There are also many nice harness sets as well.
The total cost of each puppy is $1500, regardless of color and sex. A $400 non refundable deposit will be deducted from the total amount, to have you placed on my waiting list or to hold your puppy .
