Update January 18, 2016


Ty and Noah


These two handsome boys are brothers and are now about 4 1/2 years of age. It isn’t required that they be adopted together but they would sure love that possibility. These boys are very sweet and affectionate boys.  Ty and Noah need to be placed in a home without children.


They are initially a bit suspicious of people they don’t know, Ty more so than Noah, but given a little bit of time to become familiar they are both loves. They are both good with other dogs and regularly interact with other dogs. They both love to chase along after my Border Collie when we are playing fetch.


Noah likes to stalk kitties and Ty could care less about them. They both enjoy riding in the vehicle but both are nervous when they are in an unfamiliar environment. They are both good in the house but are still crated when I am not home. Their crate behavior is much better now compared to when they were youngsters but still need the opportunity to go out for potty breaks often and shouldn’t be left for more than about 4 hours at a time.


Their idea of a perfect home setting would be a quiet, country setting with a large fenced yard for them to play and have fun with their people and to have at least one stay at home parent. They would be best as home bodies and to go along places for ride alongs but are not the type of dogs that will enjoy going EVERYWHERE and being around lot of “strangers” on a regular basis. If they are not adopted together they would do best in a home with another dog because they do seem to feel safer when they are in the presence of other dogs.


Noah has been introduced to some agility obstacles and even though he is hesitant at first, when he is given a little time to get the obstacle figured out he seems to have fun learning how to maneuver the obstacle. These boys are looking for a patient person to provide them with a forever home. Someone who will love them for the soft, sensitive boys that they are and allow them to live in a quiet and predictable home.

Ty has come a long way from where he was at 5 months of age. He is now a sweet and cuddly boy that is very comfortable in his familiar environment. He is excellent with other dogs and fine with cats. He is typically a bit suspicious of unfamiliar people but if given a little space and time he warms up fairly quickly.

Ty is a very soft and sensitive boy that is very effected by a change in his environment or routine. He is looking for a home with humans that are very patient and understanding and realize that he will need adequate time to become familiar with them and his new home….this will not happen in 1 week, or two weeks and likely not even 6 weeks. He is a wonderful doggie but wasn’t allowed to have the best start in life and had no exposure to novel stimuli and very little interactions with humans until he was rescued by CBBCR at 5 months of age.

He needs a forever home where he won’t have to be crated for more than about 2-3 hours at a time…and a home that will give him plenty of opportunity to go outside for potty breaks…..or someone that would have access to a doggy daycare where he could go daily while his humans are at work away from home. (12/6/14)


Ty is a very calm BC. One of the most, calm pups I’ve ever been around. He is an observer and likes to lay and watch what is going on and takes it all in….
He enjoys lounging in the baby pool on hot days….he LOVES squeaky toys but will shred them. 
He also like to have a good chew on a hard bone while he is sunning himself in the yard.  He doesn’t like to chase the water hose but loves to chase other dogs while he is chasing the water hose. 

He is an affectionate and cuddly guy. Good for bathing and nail trimming and acts reasonable on leash. Again, a softie and is worried when out of his familiar environment.

He is the biggest of his brothers but is still in the 40# range. He is a sweetie pie but is soft and will also need a very patient and understanding human in his life. When meeting new people, he is typically stand-off-
ish …..but is quiet. He does not bark at people he doesn’t know and will warm up much more quickly than his brother. (9/24/14)


Ty is the biggest pup of the litter and is just as sweet as he is big!  Born on September 16, 2013, he is one of the softest pups of the bunch and takes a little longer to warm up to new people and new environments than his brothers...but once he does is very much a joy to be around. He also loves squeaky toys and if left to his own with them, will shred them.... He loves playing with other doggies and is good with the kitties. He is VERY foodie and will be a fun boy to train due to his intense food drive! Again, I believe he will blossom into a wonderful companion level boy in the right home, that is patient and gentle and knows how to keep him feeling safe and satified in his new adventures!!(updated 3/28/14)

More about this rescue

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.
