Bea's Story...
Looking for a young BC full of go and overflowing with potential? Meet Bea aka Busy Bea!! This darling little tricolor sprite with foxy features and sparkling brown eyes is a lively and curious pup who is just rarin’ to go!

Bea came to WBCR from a Utah shelter testing positive for heartworms. After receiving the treatment to rid her of the worms, she was confined to crate rest for one looooong month at her foster home. The month is now up, and Bea is ready to take on the world! With a clean bill of health, Bea is now free to run, jump and explore everything, and she is thrilled to do just that. With puppyish enthusiasm, Bea gets excited and curious over every new thing, and at barely a year old, Bea’s future is bright.

Bea is a charmer, and although she’s a little shy with new people, she warms up quickly. She’s quite loving with her human friends and family, as well as the family dogs, and is happy to soak up any attention that comes her way. This action-packed lass loves to play, whether it's with her foster canine siblings or any plush toys laying around. Bea also looooves to play with her foster family’s strong-willed cat…she will lay on the floor and nip at the cat's feet while the cat tries to bat her on the head. She’s not into fetching – yet – but certainly enjoys entertaining herself by flinging her squeaky toys around!

She also enjoys car rides, camping, hiking, or running circles in the yard at full speed until
she tires out, just for the sheer joy of it. Bea is a slight girl who is built for speed – she would be a great candidate for agility or flyball. She’s showing a little herding instinct and like most BCs, is definitely interested in movement. She’s overall a high energy kiddo who will need a good chunk of vigorous activity daily to be happiest. She also has puppy-energy jags followed by hard crashes and naps, and she definitely has an off switch once her needs have been met.

And bright as the dickens, too? You betcha! Bea is a sensitive girl who will do best with gentle, reward-based training. She’s already housetrained and settles down nicely in her crate. She’s pretty good on a leash, has a nice sit, and is learning to come when called. Bea will definitely need adopters committed to continuing with her basic manners training to help her become the well-mannered canine citizen we know she can be, and who can manage her puppy behaviors like chewing till she is past that stage. Bea will also do well with a home that can direct her energies into appropriate outlets and “jobs”. While she’s a fairly confident little girl, she would also benefit from adopters willing to help her gain additional experience out in the world to help give her that little bit more she needs. While she’s well-adjusted enough to handle a busy household, like many young BCs, Bea will need a LOT of stimulation, both physical and mental, to keep her happy, and will require a real time commitment for years to come.

All in all, Bea is a charming little girl with has all the makings of a star. In the right hands, she is sure to shine! Bea will do best with a loving, lively family that enjoys a lot of action, and who have the time and energy to raise her well. Another canine playmate in the home would be ideal. If you are looking for the full BC package – curious, athletic, full of energy and zest for life – and have the time and energy to devote - here she is! Whoever is lucky enough to take Busy Bea home will have found a real winner.

Bea will be spayed prior to adoption, is fully vaccinated and living in a loving foster home near Fort Collins, CO.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Bea, a Denver 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 Denver, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Denver.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Denver 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 Denver 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 Denver paves the way for another one to be saved.
