Molly has settled in and is one happy lady! She loves running in the snow and couldn't be happier rolling, playing fetch and prancing in the freshly fallen powder. She continues to eat well, sleep well and roll over for belly rubs whenever possible. She is also now running on leash in perfect stride with our 2.5 year-old BC. We think she's just great- and such a smart gal. We've been practicing her recall off leash and she's near perfect, showing some poor listening skills only every once and a while (uh oh, bunny tracks). She's also picked up on ringing a bell to go out, and can sit and stay for long periods of time.


Her vet visit went splendidly- and she's in superb health. She does need to take Proin 1x daily for incontinence after the spay, but it's one pill in her food and an easy dose.


We know she'd be happy with lots of land and an active family who could get her out for runs, jogs, bike rides, ski trips and more! She will certainly let you know that she needs to get outside for supervised playtime! She would also make a great dog in training classes, and has four certificates under her belt already. Certainly treat motivated, she's quick to learn tricks and aims to please.


The barking is settling down with positive reinforcement training and more "dog-centric" activities. She's still bothered (shy) with men, but we're seeing less of a response while on walks or on the porch when we get her attention and treat for a shift in focus. Any interested adopter should expect to continue this work with Molly so that she can react more appropriately to male strangers.

Molly has been in Madison with her foster family for five days. In this time period we've learned a lot about her-- but of course more details will follow as she gets comfortable and shares more about herself. She is a really smart gal, knowing: sit, come, down, crate, play dead, roll over, stay and more. She is very active, and we've found that four mile-long runs just aren't enough... nine miles is more like it! She loves to play ball and frisbee, and is highly addicted to TV shows with balls and dogs. The Super Bowl will be a fun day for us indeed! Wait a minute... Puppy Bowl!

Molly needs to work on her barking and some fear aggression with men. She currently barks quite a bit at any male passerby, and though she does not bite, air snap or show teeth- her reactions can be alarming. She's great with our two year-old male BC but I think he'd say she has some "alpha female" issues (she steals his toys and herds him when they play off leash ;-)

She is also a sincere lover, rolling over for belly rubs and leaning on legs for attention regularly. Plus, her fur is as soft as a puppy's! We're excited to have her... she's just the easiest and smartest foster anyone could ask for! Please submit an application for this lady and contact her foster family if you have more questions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Molly-Adoption Pending, a Valparaiso Border Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie for sale in Valparaiso, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Valparaiso.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Valparaiso already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Valparaiso breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Border Collie breeders who help with Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Valparaiso paves the way for another one to be saved.
