↑ Return to Our Foster Dogs


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!

March 13

Mollie is a sweet female who is 3-4 years old. She was recently removed from a home for uncleanly conditions along with four non-Border Collies. She is a bit curious about her new life and adapting well. She arrived in her foster home yesterday after a day at the vet getting checked out and updated with vaccines. We celebrated to learn she is Heartworm negative!

The first night here she didn’t like my dog so she showed him some teeth. She was happy to just rest in her crate because her last 72 hours had been pretty chaotic. By this morning she was comfortable being in the backyard with my dog. By this evening she was happy to go for a walk with him and hang out in the house together for a bit. Now she is resting in her crate again. We tell all our adopters that this relaxing, quiet time in a crate is so important for any new dog when transitioning to a new home.

Mollie wants to be pet and comes up to me for body and belly scratches. She currently has an ear infection and ear mites so she is getting ear drops which she absolutely hates. She squirms and sometimes cries but when I’m done she just wants to cuddle with me even though I am the one putting the drops in. Otherwise, her test results show her to be a healthy dog. Mollie will be spayed within the next two weeks.

She has been happy to explore the house (stairs aren’t a problem for her), check out the noise of the guinea pigs, and run into her crate at meal time. She loves to be outside in the backyard to sniff and look around. She is fully potty trained and hasn’t had an accident at the vet or here; I’m impressed.

I’m excited to watch her grow and learn her personality. She’s a lovely pooch!
