My story

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

SNOOKS IS A COURTESY LISTING WHO LIVES WITH HER OWNER IN LAFAYETTE, INDIANA. CBBCR OFFERS COURTESY LISTINGS AS A COMMUNITY SERVICE. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THIS DOG, PLEASE CONTACT THE OWNER DIRECTLY: SDJOHNSON1294@GMAIL.COM

Snooks is an adult female BC mix who has some anxiety issues, with thunderstorms and with small children.  She is on medication (Trazadone) for the anxiety issues but would like a home where there are no children, with an owner who understands BCs and anxiety disorders. 


Please note that Snooks has twice nipped at small children, most likely when she felt she could not get away from them and was in a defensive mode.  She is not comfortable around children.  The bites were likely defensive in nature but she should not have a chance to repeat the behavior.

Snooks may also have some separation anxiety; her owner says this about her:

'She is obedient for the most part, she could use some more training (leash, stay, etc.). She is very loving and loves to have all the attention and go on car rides. She is potty trained and has very to little accidents in the house. She is crate trained. She would do best with someone that can be with her majority of the time.'

Please also note that Snooks will need a heartworm test to complete her health record, and a potential adopter should discuss that with her current owner.

If you can offer Snooks a calm, ordered home with assistance in coping with her anxiety, please contact her owner at the e-mail address above!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

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 the dog(s) placed. Applicants are screened via telephone interview, reference checks, veterinary history and home visit to ensure the safety and well being of each dog we place. We have a high rate of success in our placement of border collies in adoptive homes.

Go meet their pets

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.

More about this rescue

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. What We Do-- We rescue border collies. We educate people. Why We Do It-- 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.
