Lady is a 6 year old female BC who came to us from Northern Illinois.  She was relinquished to a shelter because her owners did not have time for her.  Well, little Lady, we have time for you!  She is being fostered in Springfield, Illinois, where she lives with other dogs and cats.  She does chase the cats, so it may be better (for the cats) if there are none in the home.  Lady attended our recent event at Purina Farms and did very well!  She is a little cautious meeting new people but will quickly warm up to you!

Lady has a beautiful smile on her face most of the time now, she comes when called, she has taken her potty training to heart and generally is a sweet funny girl.

She gives border collie hugs, she loves her walks, and is so happy when praised or given treats for being such a good girl! Lady is a cuddlier She loves laying on the bed or couch next to me belly up getting a little petting and love.

She has really calmed down, and while she is still high energy, she is good if she can go out and run a few hours in the backyard each day. She responds well if I jump up and play bow at her, she will jump and zoom around me, I really think she would be a great dancer with training!

Lady's perfect home would be with someone who is active, has a big backyard for her to run in, and was looking for a sweet dog to walk run and play with!


Update 7/24/17
Lady is doing well, very happy, and sweet. Lady has settled into a routine, she wakes up, eats her breakfast with our other dogs and has a quick run in the backyard prior to breakfast. After breakfast she lays back down and rests with the other dogs while we sleep, then gets up with us, goes for another run in the backyard. And goes for a walk with all the dogs and my husband. From there home, a few more runs in the backyard, playing with Lily and Honeybear, hanging in the garden with me if I'm home, coming up to give kisses and love happy smiles all day, getting petted , rolling over for belly rubs. She is still very active and would spend more time running but it is just too hot! She loves getting treats from her Kong and is very adept at figuring the best way to get them out of the toy.

Lady also loves to be in our front window, watching the yard barking at things going by, and jumping up and down off the window seat area. Lady also loves to swim and is very funny biting at the water and paddling! Lady is very sweet I got my first Border Collie hug with a kiss today from her!

Lady is timid around new people, and takes a while to trust. She is very active and needs a good outlet for her energy. I feel that with the right training she might be great for agility, in addition my sister visited and took Lady running and she was awesome running with my sister.

Lady is very sweet and deserves a great home. For an active person who likes to hike or run or agility she would be great! Right now she does fine with two walks a day, running in the back yard, playing with our dogs and lots of love. She needs her own person to love and give her devotion too!

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
