Sevee (Adopted!)

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!

March 20

Sevee (AKA Pig) is ready and interested in finding that person/family who will love him and understand him. To help you get to know Sevee, an 8 year old, male, Border Collie mix, we have transcribed a recent interview with him as we snuggled on the couch.

Q: Why did your original owner give you up?
Sevee: She didn’t want to so she was sad to see me go. The other dog I was living with had long-term health issues that took a lot of her time and energy. It was best for me to have a new start with someone who could spend more time with me.

Q: If you could tell a potential adopter why they will love you, what would you say?
Sevee: Besides my cute face, my playful ways, and my soft fur, I’d say my loyalty because I love my humans.

Q: Where is your favorite place to be pet?
Sevee: I love belly rubs; they are divine. Although I love pets of all kinds because I love touch and personal attention.

What’s your ideal forever family?
Sevee: What I really want from my humans is snuggling and structure. Sometimes I talk back or share my views and I have to be told to “knock it off” so I remember not to sound so crabby. I am happy as an only dog or I can live with other dogs. I don’t want to live with reactive dogs who bark or snap at me. I can handle cats- just ask any of the six cats I currently live with.

Q: What is the record number of tennis balls you have had in your mouth at the same time?
Sevee: Five! Yes, I am that talented.

Q: How is your human supposed to respond to you without being too hard or too soft in regards to your talkativeness?
Sevee: They don’t have to yell and lose their cool but they need to not let me have my way. I respond best to an assertive yet calm voice so I know I haven’t pushed your buttons and haven’t walked all over you.

Q: What characteristics are you looking to improve on?
Sevee: I don’t always like to share my toys and food with other dogs, so I’ve been called a “resource guarder.” I like to eat in my crate to avoid conflict and I hog some toys in my mouth. I am too talkative (a/k/a I can be a grumbler.) I am also known to bark when I want attention or when someone else is barking.

Q: What’s the most common compliment you get?
Sevee: After petting me, people usually say, “oh wow, he is so plush!”

Q: What commands do you know?
Sevee: I know sit, down, kennel, back up, come, and shake.

Q: What are your hobbies?
Sevee: Balls are my absolute favorite! I love to play with them whether there is a human with me or not. Cuddling, belly rubs, and being outside also make my list of favorite hobbies.
