Fynn

You must complete an adoption application with WBCR before we will consider you for one of our Border Collies (under the “adoption” link). Then go to our PayPal link to pay the $15.00 application fee. 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!

April 3

Welcome, Fynn! He’s 13 weeks old and completely adorable! He’s only been here one night, so we’re still learning a lot about him, but here’s what he’s done so far:

  • Was nervous to meet his foster mom when she came to pick him up. He so wanted to play, and would run back and forth wagging his tail, but it took a while to gain enough courage to take a treat from her. After 15 minutes, he was happily sitting in her lap and giving kisses.
  • He cried for the first 20 minutes in then car and then was pretty quiet the rest of the trip.
  • Since leaving his littermates, Fynn hadn’t met another dog. He was cautious meeting his foster sister, but quickly warmed up to her and now wants her to play with him. He takes corrections from her very well when he gets too wound-up.
  • We’ve gone on a couple walks down the road and he’s stayed fairly close to his foster mom. Though he does want to eat every small rock, twig, leaf, and piece of mulch he can find.

  • He had part of his dinner and breakfast in a puzzle toy and figured it out instantly! He’s such a smart little man.
  • We worked on “It’s Your Choice,” which is a game that teaches them self control. He did amazing! Again, I’ll say, he’s such a smart little man.

  • Whined in the crate for a little bit when we went to sleep, but then was quiet the rest of the night. We heard him moving around at 6:30am and decided to take him out even though he wasn’t crying. No accidents so far!

This adorable little guy currently has a lot more interest in food than toys, but he started playing with them a little last night. He also really likes to chew! He’s chewed on every chew toy in his crate, as well as blankets, water bowls, leashes, and pretty much anything else. Though so far he hasn’t chewed on any furniture!
