T – 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!

May 5

T has continued to blossom and seems quite comfortable with a chaos of our home and daily lives. He “kennels” like a champ and lives up with the other dogs for treats. He is being quite the retriever and definitely enjoys chasing and returning the tennis ball.

T is a good cuddler, and I often find him on the couch with my teenage daughters with his head resting on their laps. He has his goofy dog moments and is still learning manners. I ended up with muddy paw prints on my coat the other morning because he was excited and jumped up on me. T has learned his name and is getting very good at responding to it. He has been great in house. No accidents and no chewing.

T can occasionally be a bit intense trying to get our young male dog to play but we’ve noticed that increasing his exercise has helped that. T is a friendly, happy dog who is going to be a great dog for some willing to keep training and exercising him. His personality reminds me more of a young Golden Retriever than a young Border Collie but he is a quick learner and a pretty easy guy to live with.

T is a 2 year old male who came from a hoarder situation. When he arrived Thursday he was shy but handleable. He was good for his veterinary examination and was found to be in good health and heartworm and tickborne disease negative. He is scheduled to be neutered next week.

Because we were concerned that we might not be able to catch him in our large fenced yard, we attached a long line to his collar before taking him out. T was so happy to run around the yard and did well when introduced to the 4 resident dogs. He was a bit shy meeting my husband for the first time but warmed quickly and is now often found sitting near him. T would not get into a crate when he was transported from the shelter to the animal hospital and the transportation person and shelter workers actually had to take the airline crate apart and rebuild it around him. He had to be “forced” in the crate, but once in, he settles in well and seems content. He slept through the night without a peep.

T enjoys chewing nylabones. Today, T had a stuffed toy that he is delighted to chase, retrieve, and return. This smart guy is quickly learning the rules of the house and has graduated to being outside without a long line. He seems to be learning his name and is responding to it.

T is a bit of a blank slate when it comes to training so we are starting with some very basic commands. He is wearing a belly band since he is still intact and we are unsure how housebroken he is. He did have one “accident” in the house but we haven’t seen him leg lifting and he seems to know that he should go potty outside. We went for a walk, and he pulls like a freight train, so we will need to work on that.

T is a big handsome young dog who will need someone who is willing to spend some time training him. He enjoys being with people and adores spending time with my teenage daughters who will fawn over him. T is a super nice boy.
