Emily-New Update 6/19's Story...
All potential adopter’s will need to be approved to adopt from MWBCR and should visit our website at for more information on the approval process.

Emily has been doing very well getting around to new places and meeting new people and dogs. We are working her on a Sensation Harness (a front clip harness, that prevents her pulling)which has helped her tremendously. She is a busy girl and loves to be outside and play with her foster dog family. She finally warmed up to another pal, named Mac. Mac is a 9 months old, male, Bull Terrier. She just cannot get enough of him! And vice versa! It took her a bit to take a liking to him as he really is a forward guy, friendly but forward. If you know Border Collies, distance is a big deal with them! Luckily, they both found a happy medium and really enjoy each other's company.

Emily is more of a follower than a leader. Hence the reason why her new family will have to provide a positive and structured environment. If the other dogs are doing something, she follows suit. She is not a fan of driving in the car, but will lay calmly in her crate in the car when it is not moving. In new environments, she will look to me and may talk a bit but the time for her to settle has gotten much better. We are also doing Pedestal work. This provides her with a place to go in different environments. For dogs that lack confidence, such as Emily, it helps give her a focal point; similar to a security blanket or safe spot for her. When I work with her in classes, I switch between pairing her with a confident, non-reactive dog and working her alone. This has helped her make better decisions.

Emily is a petite, adorable 7 month old spayed, smooth coat Border Collie. She is a typical teenager in need of direction. She is hesitant about meeting new people but will warm up if given a bit of time. She is more concerned about men so we are working on it. When she worries, she vocalizes then leans up against me. Emily has taken quite a liking to the youngest two dogs of her foster family. She could out play them if allowed to. She will mind her manners if inappropriate with other dogs. She prefers dogs that are not very forward in their approach when meeting or playing with her. We are currently working on crating quietly, walking on a leash, looking to me when new people or dogs come into classes, meeting new people, going to new places and learning how to calmly handle situations, and of course, riding in a car. She loves being petted, playing with toys, chewing, laying quietly by your feet and wants to be with you. She will need a new home that will be patient with her, take her to classes and help her meet people. If you are looking for a fun loving, loyal and adorable partner, Emily is your dog!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Emily-New Update 6/19, 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.
