↑ 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!

February 12

Seven was transferred to his permanent foster home near Racine, WI on the 9th (the day after he was transported from his home). With the bigger house and yard, he really opened-up and gained more confidence! He was introduced to cats and dogs right from the get-go, and he was fabulous with them! If he was lunged at, Seven would stand up for himself, but he never showed any aggression. An he surprisingly ignored the cats for the most part! His previous owner reported a nipping behavior, but we’re noticing that with a strong leader who’s not afraid to give a vocal correction, he does not resort to that behavior. He probably should not be around very young kids just to be safe, though.

This adorable goof is fitting in well so far. We used a long line tonight since he was tough to catch when we ran him when he was first delivered to his permanent foster home. Of course he has come in just fine without us having to use the line. My husband “helped” him into the crate to eat earlier, and he was fine with it. No cat issues or dog to dog issues at this point. He rides great in the car and was fine with everyone he met at the vet clinic today. As I type this, my dog, Irene, is snarling and showing him all her teeth. He lifted his lip too but a guttural warning from me stopped it.

Seven (who is coincidentally 7 years old) came into foster care yesterday. I had to re-fresh my memory on his age, because he acts younger. He’s very sweet, treat-motivated, and eager to please. He’s potty trained, does not seem to mark in the house at all, and he transports nicely in the car. He was reported to have some resource guarding issues and some cat issues, but we’ll be able to see what they’re like once he gets settled in. He’s a leaner and enjoys petting.
