Clover is a 8 month 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

Clover along with her three sisters and mommy were saved from a shelter in Louisiana. They jumped on a plane and headed north. Half their journey was completed by air and the other half was on a automotive transport from Missouri to Indiana. She was only 9 weeks old when she made this 2 day journey.

Clover’s siblings and her mommy have all been adopted and Clover is still waiting for her perfect home to come along.

She is a petite little girl (the smallest pup in her litter) and absolutely stunning. She jet black, fluffy coat is gorgeous. She enjoys playing with other dogs and plays in doggie daycare every day. She meets new dogs literally on a daily basis and really enjoys playtime. However, now that she is growing up a little she is getting a little sassy and will definitely let dogs know what is and what isn’t appropriate in terms of how they greet her and she will not be in favor of any humping…those dogs will be scolded by her. Her reaction is always very appropriate but if you aren’t familiar with dogs and their communications with each other this may look scary to you.

She is a very cuddly and affectionate pup when she gets to know you. She is a bit suspicious of new people and takes a little time to warm up. She warms up faster when she has her doggie friends with her… (safety in numbers She is also a bit nervous when she is in a new environment…building a safety history with you will be very important in making her feel safe when she is in new places.

Clover does have some potential as a performance partner but she is a sensitive girl so would need a handler that was patient and encouraging. Old school traditional training methods would crush her as it would most Border Collies amongst most other breeds of dogs.

I believe her ideal home would be one with another young dog that enjoys dog play. I think she’d do best with a male dog vs a female dog. She will do best in a home that is quiet and predictable and with someone that enjoys activities with their dog such as reinforcement based obedience and agility classes, so that you can continue to build a positive relationship together. I feel she has potential to really blossom as a competitive partner in the right home.

I find her to be a joy. She is my kind of dog but I am also suspicious of strangers and new environments so I can relate to her well and know how to help her feel safe when she is feeling a bit fearful and overwhelmed.

So, overall….sweet, affectionate baby girl that enjoys playing with other dogs. She takes a little time to warm up to new people but is a little love bug once she gets to know you. She is foodie so reinforcing her with food in training would be highly effective. She will make a nice companion level dog with someone that enjoys dabbling in obedience and or agility and just getting out and having fun with training their dog.

About Come Bye Border Collie Rescue - Northern Division

About Our Rescue Group...

Come Bye BC Rescue is an Illinois-licensed, not for profit rescue organization dedicated to the rescue of border collies. Our western boundaries extend as far west as Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and as far east as Ann Arbor, Michigan. Started as an all breed rescue in 2002, we soon found ourselves devoting most of our efforts to saving border collies. Incorporated in Illinois as Animal Protective Association of So. Illinois, we are also known as Come Bye Border Collie Rescue to more accurately reflect our passion for the border collie breed. 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.

We rescue border collies. We educate people. 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 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 each dog placed. Applicants are thoroughly screened via telephone interview, reference checks, veterinary history and home visit. We have a high rate of success in our placement of border collies in adoptive homes.

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.

Our Adoption Process...

Come Bye BC Rescue takes great pride in placing our foster dogs in a home that is best suited to each dog's individual personality, temperament, and activity level. We will do a phone interview with you, a veterinarian reference check, personal reference checks, conduct a home visit, and do whatever else is needed to verify all the information on your application. We want to be sure that you and your new dog are a good match, so that each placement is a permanent one. The adoption process is our way of getting to know you, your family, and your lifestyle. First and foremost, the Rescue's main responsibility is to our foster dogs. Additional information on our adoption process may be found at
