Other Available Dogs

Unfortunately, we do not always have enough foster space to accommodate the many Border Collies who need to be rescued. And luckily, some owners who need to place their dogs keep them until a suitable home is found. The dogs below are listed as a service to those individuals or other rescue groups. Great Lakes Border Collie Rescue has not met these dogs and therefore, makes no representations of the health, temperament, or suitability of these dogs. Nonetheless, they still need homes. If you are interested in one of the listed dogs please contact the owner/shelter directly. These are not GLBCR foster dogs and it is not necessary to fill out an adoption application. All adoption details will have to be negotiated with the owners of the listed dogs.

We try to keep these pages up to date. Please email us if you are having difficulties getting in touch with one of the listed rescuer or if a dog has been adopted.

Jack is a 4 year old energetic Border Collie/German Shepherd (60 lbs) looking for a specific type of home. He had a rough start to life and therefore takes a bit to warm up to new people. He'd do best in a home that he can be put away when new people come over (no kids). He's great with other dogs and is fully housebroken, rarely barks, and knows his commands. Has done well with a cat in the past. He is also neutered and UPD on all shots. His bouncy, quirky personality make him quite the clown, entertaining companion, and expert cuddler. He is being re-homed because my daughter travels for her job and is unable to care for him.
