All Dogs

Adopt a Loving Border Collie

 

Thank you for taking an interest in our organization and this special breed!

Under All Dogs you will find all of our current foster dogs. You can view the information and send an email to the listed contact for more information and ask questions. You must be an approved adopter in order to meet the dogs.  The application process can take a couple of weeks to be completed and you are not guaranteed the dog that you are interested in.  We often get multiple applications for each of our dogs and choosing the new family is entirely up to the foster home.  This decision is made in the best interest of each individual dog and not based on the order in which an application arrives.  Click Here for the Adoption Page.

Next In Line are dogs that are currently being relinquished and are approved to come to our rescue. However, they have not yet been placed with an approved foster family and so they are not covered by our organization’s policies.  Any interest in these dogs is done so at your own risk.  Please view the guidelines before inquiring.

Happy Endings are all of our dogs that have made it to their final destinations with a new FUREVER home!  Take a look at all of the smiling faces that have made their journey through our ranks.

In order to adopt a dog from us, you must first submit an Adoption Application. To submit your application, you may apply online by clicking here. If you have any questions please email us at adoption@mwbcr.org.

Thank you for considering rescue first, and for opening your heart and home to a Border Collie in need.

They are waiting for your love.
Dixie

Age: 5.5 years old

Breed: Border Collie Mix

Sex: Female

Weight: 35 lbs

Energy Level: Moderate

Dixie is a 5.5 year old spayed female and weighs 35 lbs. She is a sweet girl. She used to live on a farm, and likes to play ball, roll on her back, and likes to have her tummy rubbed. She is a little sensitive to her surroundings, so be patient with her. Dixie's safe place is her crate. She would do best in a home with no young children, in a quieter neighborhood and if with another pet, a more submissive dog. She is good in the car, very smart and likes her treats!

If you have questions or would like to adopt please contact mwbcr@mwbcr.org

Maverick

Age: 2.5 years old

Breed: Border Collie Mix

Sex: Male

Weight: 39 lbs

Energy Level: High

Fence Required for Adoption

Maverick is 2.5 years old, and weighs 39 lbs. He is very energetic. He is a sweet boy who loves to play and run. He doesn’t like to be in a kennel, but is good in the car. He has had herding tendencies with small children, and will herd if you run.

 

He would be a good companion dog to play with in the yard until he can be trained to walk properly on a leash. He is an escape artist when it comes to harnesses and collars while on leash. He will need a secure fenced in back yard with a secure gate.

Frankie

Age: 3 years old

Breed: Border Collie Mix

Sex: Male

Weight: 35 lbs

Energy Level: Moderate

Frankie is a three-year-old 35-lb sweet boy who loves to cling to his "person." His mom was a stray pulled from a shelter about three years ago, and she was 55 percent border collie. 

 

He's reserved with strangers, but once you get to know him, you'll find that he's an endearing, happy-go-lucky character. 

Frankie likes most dogs, although some annoy him, and enjoys playing fetch and inviting the foster family's other dogs to chase him around the yard to get the ball. He runs exclusively in his large fenced-in yard, where he occasionally gets the zoomies. A fence is required to adopt him.

 

Frankie is good in the car, crate trained and he sleeps in it at night with the inducement of a treat. He loves to chow down quickly and try to get food from other dogs in the family, so he has a slow, "puzzle" bowl of food in his crate. 

An inveterate counter surfer, his family has learned to keep food out of reach! He also likes to jump on people, so we're recommending kids 12+.
