UPDATE ON DALE!!!*********** Dale is on a lot of antibiotics, ointment for his eyes and skin, you can tell by his pictures is looks so much better, and he is getting over his kennel cough.***************

This is Dale! He is two years old and suffers from poor nutrition and a flea allergy. Come Bye Border Collie Rescue just saved Dale from euthanasia! One of our volunteers saw an urgent post on Facebook, that he only had 24 hours before he would be put down and needed to be saved, our volunteer felt no one would adopt him with the way he looked so he just had to save him, Come Bye put a hold on Dale and we begged for a temporary foster, and found one until Dale could get transported to his Foster Parent. Dale is now in foster care and will be getting the vetting care that he needs before he will be available for adoption. If you would like to help with Dale's vetting cost and would like to sponsor him there is a Sponsor tab right below his picture. 

Dale is a beautiful baby boy who loves lots of hugs...a real cuddle bug. He is house/crate trained and walks great on a leash. Dale is a playful, energetic boy who gets along well with other dogs. He loves to run around the yard and run the fence line with the rest of the pack; however, he barks at that strange dog in the mirror.

His favorite toy is the tennis ball; he loves to fetch the ball and will bring it back to you, then release/drop it, so you can throw the ball again. He can sit on command and is still working on staying and his other commands. However, he appears to be eager to please and responds great to unofficial commands like: 'Come here' 'No/stop' 'This way' 'Wait for me/slow down' 'Release it/drop it' 'Leave it' Dale will be a welcomed addition to any loving family.

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
