Chloe – Adoption Pending!

You must complete an adoption application with WBCR before we will consider you for one of our Border Collies (under the “adoption” link). One of our volunteers will check your references, and then another will come to your home to meet you & your family in person before the board will vote on your application. If you are approved, we will arrange a time for you to meet the dog(s) you are interested in. If you decide he/she is perfect for you and the board agrees, we will schedule a day for you to pick up your Border Collie, sign adoption paperwork, and pay the $350 minimum adoption donation. This whole process may take a month or more, as all WBCR members are volunteers and we’re committed to making a perfect match for our border collies. Thanks for your patience!

Chloe continues to be awesome with walks, homelife, and loving new adults. This weekend I was out of town so she went to a dog sitter’s where she was the only dog. He said she whined for the first few minutes after being dropped off, then settled right in and was a perfect houseguest. She continues to be happy all the time. She has only met a couple dogs but has given an introductory growl each time so we keep walking. Today we walked past one of those dogs and she was wagging her tail and wanting to say hi. We will try to get closer tomorrow to see if she is just telling new dogs that she likes to take it slow. She does not like to take it slow with humans. She still loves every human she meets by giving them kisses and giving full buddy wiggles. She doesn’t use her crate any more at night. She curls up on the floor next to the bed and is quiet until I get up. Squirrels, tennis balls, and humans are still the three favorite things in the world of Chloe.

Chloe has really adjusted to her new routine. She is still getting comfortable eating inside her crate but we are working on that skill. She still gets along very well with my dog. From time to time she will try to get him to play and wrestle but he doesn’t want to. She still politely asks by giving him little hops around him.

We had a third dog this weekend that we were taking care of and Chloe picked on her a little bit. Each time I was able to call her and redirect. Otherwise when she was being bossy she would hover or give a peck. There was never any fight just some rude and annoying behavior that she needed to be distracted from.

She loves to spend her free time watching squirrels still. She sleeps in a crate at night but hangs out on the bed while we get ready. She is playing with her tennis ball more. She just walks around the room dropping it and picking it back up. It makes her so happy. When you call her name she comes running with her tailwagging which makes her whole body wiggle with happiness.

Chloe has arrived from Kentucky and is adjusting to her foster home quite well. She is happy that Wisconsin has squirrels to watch too but she is happy about most things. Her tail is usually wagging all the time.

Chloe is a tri-color, almost-two year old who came from a loving home that decided to give her up because she was not getting along with another dog in the household. She has been walking beautifully on a leash but I do hang on extra tight when we are walking past squirrel activity. The original foster home said she pulled while on leash so maybe we will see this later. She is crate- trained and settles quickly when I leave for work or when we go to bed.

Her original family says she loves to play with tennis balls and that she can entertain herself most of the time with them by throwing them up in the air or rolling around with one. She has started to show interest in a tennis ball here but she is still adjusting to her new surroundings since she arrived 36 hours ago after a long day of driving.

She comes from a house that had 8 cats and did well with them. When they ran she would chase them but she could be called back. Chloe had a doggie door that she could use freely at her original house but she has adjusted to a schedule here. She is getting along with my dog who is almost her size. When they met she gave a couple introductory growls and then all has been well since. We haven’t met any other dogs yet but it’s reported that she does well with most dogs with the exception of one or two she lived with. It sounds like it was nothing severe so I will continue to report her progress.

Overall she just is a happy, laid back, squirrel-watching, beautiful, sweet girl looking for a loving home.
