Meet Trooper!


The Dogs Who Are Independently Available (scroll to the bottom of this page)

As is the case with breed rescue groups all across the country, there are so many dogs that need a home, and far too few foster spaces to take them  in.

We find ourselves in this position all the time. We have thought it over and have decided to add these pages to our web site. The dogs listed here are in need of a home.

We require that all dogs listed have all vaccinations up to date. The information that we have on these dogs is from the owner, shelter or individual who has found and is caring for the dog. When photos are available, we will post them with the dog.
If you are interested in one of these dogs, we have included the name and contact information for  the caretaker/owner. It is up to you to check out the dog & make arrangements. It is not necessary to fill out an adoption application to adopt one of these dogs.
We are not responsible for these dogs as they are not in our rescue. We do not warrant these dogs, their temperament nor their health, nor do we know anything about them other than what the owners/shelters/caregivers have told us. All potential adopters should thoroughly investigate any dog that they are interested in.
WBCR does not charge an adoption fee for these dogs, but fees should be negotiated with the shelter or family housing the dog.

 

Trooper is a beautiful, sweet Border Collie and is around 8 mo-1 yr old. He was abandoned and found in the road in Northern Wisconsin on Halloween night. His tail is docked, but he is definitely a Border Collie. He appears to have never been in a house but is very smart and is now house-trained. He learned how to sit in 2 days, has learned to walk on the leash, is not aggressive with food towards adults (and takes treats from my children), does not chew objects in the house or jump up to get food from the counter, and allows–actually, loves–being touched anywhere on his body. He enjoys children but displays occasional aggression when he has a toy in his mouth and nipped my 2-year-old in the face once (did not break skin), but does well with my 5-year-old who knows to give him some space. Trooper is beginning to “drop” objects when requested. He enjoys and seeks playing with other dogs but displays aggression towards them when he has a toy in his mouth. He is beginning to learn how to “play” with toys and now allows “tug-of-war” with an adult without aggression. Trooper is very affectionate with and protective of females and displays anxiety behaviors with unfamiliar males. However, once he becomes comfortable with the male, his anxiety decreases and his behavior improves. Trooper has a lot of energy and enjoys being outside for running and long walks. He is not off-leash trained and would do well with a fenced yard or frequent walks. Trooper is not neutered. He has been vaccinated and is on antibiotics for an ear infection and tick infections. His intestinal parasite screen was negative. He has gained weight well and is now a very healthy, agile doggy. Trooper is a great dog who has found his way into our hearts but needs a family who can take the time to train and care for him.
