Seven

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 17

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

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

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

Q: What’s your ideal forever family?
Seven: What I really want from my human(s) 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 get 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 6 I currently live with.

Q: What is the record number of tennis balls you have had in your mouth at the same time?
Seven: 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?
Seven: 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?
Seven: I don’t always like to share my toys and food so I’ve been labeled a “resource guarder.” I like to eat in my crate in order to avoid conflict, and I hog some toys in my mouth. I am too talkative a/k/a I’m a grumbler as noted above. 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?
Seven: After petting me, people usually say, “oh wow, he is so plush!”

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

Q: Why did your original owner give you up?
Seven: 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: What are your hobbies?
Seven: I love to play with balls whether there is a human with me or not; they are just my favorite. Cuddling, belly rubs, and being outside also make my list of favorite hobbies.
