Other Available Dogs

Please be patient while the pictures download.

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. Please be patient while the pictures download.

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.

Chase loves to play with other dogs, he needs a proper intro as he tends to be a bit dominant. He loves to play ball, tug, and chase with another dog. He is potty trained, and knows lots of commands. Sit, shake, down, off, back, out, come, high five, give me 10. He does chase cats but has never hurt one. He does not care for toddlers and did bite one (startled while sleeping), he also tends to jump on visitors when they enter the house. For these reasons he would do best in a home with animal friendly children over 8 years. He is allergic to Chicken.

Macy is a WORKING Border Collie, she MUST HAVE a WORKING home. A working home means a home where Macy will have a job; a job can be fly ball, agility training, herding of farm animals, jogging / hiking partner and this means daily for miles not a 1 mile jog. Macy MUST HAVE A JOB or she will find something to entertain herself which is not a good thing. With that said, we cannot approve anyone living in a condo, apartment or rental. Macy is adorable, full of energy, and VERY SMART! She loves walks and catching the ball. She is your typical Border Collie. She is focused on you throwing a ball and her getting the ball. Want her to do something, you don't need treats, just a ball. She will do anything you ask for if you have a ball.

Macy walks well on a leash and is fine around other dogs as long as they aren't in her face. If they bark at her or try to be pushy, she will tell them to leave her alone. She was taken to the dog pound for chasing and killing chickens.... she is a Border Collie so their job is to "herd" things, so we aren't sure if she killed the chickens while trying to get them to do what she wanted or "hunted" them. Our guess is they weren't listening! Macy needs a home with no cats.

Again, Macy is a working dog and needs a working home. She is not a dog that would do well in a condo, apt or small yard. She needs to have a job like all Border Collies and needs a home with BC experience. If you love Border Collies then you will LOVE Macy. She is such a cool dog! The foster home is really enjoying her.
