Adopted March 2022.
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!

Buster came to us from an overflowing shelter in Illinois. He was relinquished by his owner who was relocating. Buster is a four year old purebred male Border Collie. He did test positive for Lyme disease and Anaplasmosis (both tickborne diseases that he is being treated for) but is otherwise healthy.
He is a tad shy at first meeting and definitely prefers women but is a very sweet guy. He is quite attached to my teenage daughters and is normally found sleeping at my feet when I’m sitting down and they aren’t around.
Buster is great with cats and other dogs so far. He pretty much ignores the cats and will lightly play with the dogs in the house especially enjoying chasing a ball or chasing the dog chasing the ball.
Buster is housebroken and despite being intact (scheduled for neutering soon) has not lifted his leg in my house. He walks nicely on a leash and has learned to kennel on command. His recall is lovely and he is very responsive to his name. Sit and down are a work in progress.
As he has gotten used to our routine he has become more animated and active but at this time I would still call him a lower energy Border Collie. He seems content with 3 or 4 ball games a day and a couple of training sessions.
Buster will be available for adoption after 4 weeks in foster care. WBCR generally keeps our fosters a minimum of 4 weeks before adopting them out so that they have a chance to get comfortable enough to show us their true selves.
Buster is looking for a forever home to call his own
