Meet Daisy!

 Daisy is approx. a 2 year old purebred Border Collie.  She came from a home where she was tied on a chain outdoors her whole life. She was an owner surrender due to the owners not being able to afford her anymore so they surrendered her to a shelter in Kentucky.

Update: 7/17/16

Daisy is a very sweet young girl. She is great with other dogs and friendly with people. She is good in her crate, good on a leash and very affectionate. She spent her life on a chain until she came to Come Bye Border Collie Rescue.

It is likely her entertainment on the chain was car chasing as she will chase cars in the window when inside. She will do best in a home that is in an area of low traffic and be able to be kept from seeing passing cars through the window when inside the house.

I have a wood privacy fence and am in a high traffic area and since she cannot see passing cars when in the play yard so she doesn’t do any car chasing at my place. She plays in doggie daycare daily and does great with her doggie friends. She is foodie which makes training a little easier and enjoyable…but she is very soft and will need a trainer that doesn’t apply tons of pressure when training.

I find Daisy to be a very enjoyable young dog that has lots of potential as an active companion level dog or a competitive partner for someone just looking to get out and have some fun with their pooch.

Week one: She is a very sweet and lovable girl. She is people, dog, cat, and children friendly. Previously being outside on a chain she had to get used to sleeping in a crate. The first couple night she had whined at first but settled right down. Still practicing with the crate and making it a safe place with positive reinforcements, and things are coming along well. She is very well a social eater and would like a human friend to be with her as she eats. She has a strong love for her peanut butter treats!!!!! 
While in the house she will wait by the window for vehicles to go by. She is very excited about passing cars and will go from window to window trying to chase them as they go by. While in the back yard in the fenced area she will go from one side to the next repeating the act when cars approach and pass. She has jumped up toward the fence but 1) doesn't seem like she wanted to go over and 2) has never made it over. She is closely monitored while outside and hasn't been left outside unattended. During leashed walks this is not an issue. She is very gentle on the lead and does very well on walks along the road while passing cars doesn't seem to excite her. I am working with her about inside manners and teaching how to be a house dog. When coming in and out of the house she NEEDS to be closely monitored so she doesn't dart out the door. Having the leash hooked to her is a must before opening the door to go out. Since Daisy has been with me, she's had some 'potty' (urine) accidents. Being a previous outside dog she's never been potty trained for the house. We will continue to work on this difficult skill.
During her visits to the dog park she isn't interested in playing with other dogs or a ball. She is content with running up and down the fence with cars and people in the distance. She will explore the entire fenced in area but will keep to herself. She will every once in awhile have a short burst of play with my other dogs, but it doesn't last long.
Week two: Miss Daisy is still as lovable as ever. Once you gain her attention she is all about love. Daisy is still a very independent dog, and would still rather play by herself. We have started going to our local tractor supply store to gain some attention and practice our public manners. Comfortable with where she is at now, she has been eating a lot better and finishing all of her food (Iams mini chunk). 
Potty accidents have become fewer but are still present. She doesn't have a cue to say ' hey, I need to go outside'. With time and patience I have a feeling it won't be long.   Her crate is now 90% better as far as getting her to go in. She is still needing a point in the right direction, but with her peanut butter doggie cookies she walks right in. 
Daisy is a very active dog and would fit perfect in a home where her owner(s) will be as active as she is. A fence (possibly 5' or higher) would be a requirement for an adoption because of her love for vehicles. More information about Daisy will soon be on the way...  

Daisy is an 2 year old female Border Collie. She is being fostered at Stephany's in Plymouth, Indiana.  You can send Stephany an email at if you have any specific questions about her.  If you have any general questions about our adoption process, please go to the Adoption Info page on our website at

About Come Bye Border Collie Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Our mission is to rescue and successfully re-home border collies. It is our belief that dogs of sound temperament should be given every chance to lead a happy, healthy and fruitful life. In support of our mission, we also offer training resources and support to current owners experiencing behavior issues with their border collies. We do this in the hope that these dogs are able to stay in their existing homes and do not end up at a shelter or in a rescue. Unfortunately, there are far more wonderful border collies in need than can be saved.

We are an all-volunteer organization staffed by individuals committed to saving this wonderful breed. Some of our volunteers have little experience with border collies, while some possess over a decade of working with border collies. We work extensively with many other border collie and all breed rescues.

What We Do--
We rescue border collies. We educate people.

Why We Do It--
Many people are interested in adopting a border collie because the breed has been labeled as the "smartest dog." With intelligence comes responsibility, and it is this lack of responsibility on the part of the owner, which results in many border collies ending up in a rescue or a shelter.

The volunteers at Come Bye BC Rescue all have a love for dogs, but a particular passion for border collies. It is this passion that moves us toward our goal of finding loving forever homes for these wonderful dogs, while continually serving as an education and training resource for both current and prospective border collie owners.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Each dog we rescue is placed in a private foster home. It is the role of the foster family to provide love, veterinary care and training to each foster dog.

Once in foster care, the foster home will arrange veterinary care (paid for by Come Bye BC Rescue) to ensure the health of the animal. Each dog is given a complete exam, spayed or neutered, heartworm tested, brought up to date on vaccinations and treated for any medical problems they may have. Some of the dogs we rescue have significant medical issues. We are very proactive in addressing any diagnosed or suspected medical problems, including the recruitment of specialists to treat the condition and, if necessary conduct surgery and advise on rehabilitation. Dogs are not discriminated against based on health issues.

Many of the dogs we rescue have never lived in a home or know what a toy is and need to be taught to play. Foster homes provide the training necessary for each dog to learn manners, housebreaking and basic obedience. Many dogs have had little to no human affection and attention. One of the most important jobs of the foster home is to teach a dog to trust humans.

Our Adoption Process...

Our rescue strives to find the perfect home for each and every dog that we accept. Our volunteers screen every potential adopter to ensure the safety and happiness of the dog(s) placed. Applicants are screened via telephone interview, reference checks, veterinary history and home visit to ensure the safety and well being of each dog we place. We have a high rate of success in our placement of border collies in adoptive homes.
