Debuting Today: Get your application in quickly for this amazing girl. Libby, Libster, Libby Lou Libby is the best girl. If she has a fault, it's she just loves to run and play ball, all day. Saved from being euthanized at a rural pound, for having demodectic mange, Libby is 100% healthy and seeking her Furever home. We have no idea what breed she is, other than striking.. Libby is about 2 yrs old 65lbs, spayed, chipped and all vaccines are current, she is housebroken. Libby would love to have a playmate, she is dog, cat and kid friendly. An active family to hike and walk would be a dream come true for her. She does require a secure fenced yard, as she is an explorer. Libby can clear a 4' fence and can climb a 6' chain link. She would make a wonderful agility dog, with time and training. If you're in the market for a loving, loyal and unique companion Libby is your girl.

Story
Shadow is a very good boy. He was subdued when he first got here which is normal, but he has blossomed. The vet estimates his age between 4 and 5 and his breed to be a lab/heeler mix. Shadow gets along with my other dogs, and I have cats as well. He didn’t pay any attention to the cats at first but now that he’s settled in and feeling comfortable, he seems to be more interested in them. He gets very excited when we get up in the morning and has tried to mix it up with one of our cats that sleeps in our room at night. He chases the others when they run past like the rest of my dogs. I don’t know that he would hurt any of my cats but may want to consider a home without cats to be safe. He does let you know when he wants to go outside by making a cute whine/squeak sound and when he’s ready to come in by scratching on the door. We have had a couple of accidents but nothing major. He is loved here and will be missed when he finds his furever home. He’s going to make someone a wonderful addition to their family. Thank you.

Story
Pendleton has the very best ears. They reach to the sky and have so much personality. This fun and silly border collie is such a great age at 4 months old. He has had zero accidents in the house, is fantastic in his crate and sleeps all night, and is getting the hang of leash training. Pendleton is a brave explorer. He likes to investigate the house and yard and doesn’t mind venturing around on his own. He has loads of energy as he zooms, rounding up his humans and canines in hopes that they’ll play with him. He’d no doubt be a star in agility or other dog sports. Pendleton is hearing impaired. He is learning hand signals to communicate and is working on “come” and “sit” right now. He would love someone with herding dog experience who understands the energy and brains of these smart dogs. He needs a fenced-in yard and someone devoted to training and adventures. As with many border collies, Pendleton tends to have some OCD tendencies that are easily directed with training and/or a purpose like agility or playing. He’s happiest when he’s busy but also loves cuddling on the couch! Pendleton is being fostered in the St. Louis area. ##2030412##

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Please contact stephodellfcr@hotmail.com for more information about this pet.Ty is an active 10 year old smooth coat male BC.  He and his brothers came from Central Indiana and are being fostered in Plymouth, Indiana. If you would like additional information on Ty, contact Stephany at stephodellfcr@hotmail.com.  For additional information on adopting Ty or any of the other CBBCR foster dogs, go to the CBBCR website at www.comebyebcrescue.org. 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) ***  The potential adoptor will get a refund on the Application Fee if it’s determined by the Foster Parent that it’s not a good match for the dog and the dog for them.***Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.May 20, 2024, 10:01 am

His foster says that he will mingle when people come for meet and greets with the other dogs, but he does not yet approach strangers.  He is good with cats and dogs, loves chew bones and will chase balls, Gus does well with a routine and would do best placed in a home with a canine companion.************************************************** Gus has come a long way....but still has miles to go. He loves, loves, loves playing with other dogs and I think that has really saved him. He is one of the first dogs to welcome new dogs and initiate play. He is good with dogs of all sizes....toy to giant. He willingly follows me around through the yards and is always very curious about what I'm up to. He comes within sight when I call him. He comes inside when called and seeks out his crate. With the every day routine he is great....outside of his 'normal' tasks or outside of his familiar play yard he is non-functional and very much a flight risk. He is excellent in his crate. Good with kitties. Still won't come up to me for any type of touching. He does like to come sniff me though if I am very still. He loves tennis balls and chew bones. When I do need to handle him....he will just freeze and tolerate it. And surprisingly he is good in the bathtub. ....again will freeze and tolerate it....but doesn't try to bolt or escape during his bath time. Tolerates nail trimming as well. This poor guy.....he will never be what we think of as 'Normal' but he is slowly finding out who he is and what he enjoys....it will be fascinating to see what a year will bring.... I think Gus and his mother, Livie (as they are very similar), both need to go to a home that wants a lifetime project, someone with an endless supply of patience and someone that doesn't really 'need' anything from their dog. He definitely needs to go to a home with another dog as he feels more safe when he has a buddy.....and they would need a super secure fenced yard. (12/16/14)**************************************************Gus – If you can imagine how a feral barn kitty behaves and flees from perceived danger…..that will pretty much give you an idea of Gus. He is basically feral. In the time that he has been with me he has become very good at everything that he can predict and what becomes a routine in his day to day activities. He knows how to get to the door to go outside, he goes to the proper gate to get in to his play yard area, he will come when called from his play yard to the door to come back inside, he will go find his crate and go in voluntarily. Just this past week or so he has been starting to want to approach me while other dogs are near me to get some good sniffs. I just ignore him and let him do his thing and I try not to put any social pressure on him whatsoever. His interactions with other dogs has progressed much more rapidly. He loves meeting new dogs and regularly initiates play with other dogs. He really enjoys chew time with hard bones, nylabones, etc… and he will chase after balls then will act silly playing with the ball by himself. He was actually quite good for his bath and nail trim…..frozen as you can imagine…but didn’t try to constantly flee like Livie does. When riding in the car he needs to be in a plastic crate…..in a wire crate he is frantic and tries to chew out of crate and screams like he is being killed….in the plastic crate he is calm and quiet and rides very well. At the dog school he is learning to follow pressure from the leash on his collar…..but in a new environment such as the vet…where he can see the great outdoors….he will frantically fight the leash and act completely feral….. I carry him whenever we leave his familiar and safe little world.  He will need a super secure, most likely a privacy fenced yard….he does know how to dig in corners of fences and I have had to block all my corners, even with having the turf down. He should NEVER be left outside unattended…he is a major flight risk and would be extremely difficult to catch. A new adopter would need to let him drag a line for several weeks until he could settle in to a new routine. The person that will best be suited for Gus and Livie for that matter…..is someone looking for a project…..to actually SAVE a dog. A person that has no expectations and is just patient and willing to let things progress at a slow speed. He has tried but just struggles with himself about if it is safe to approach humans. I think another dog in the home is a good idea because he does really enjoy playing with other doggies and he is fine with cats. (9/24/14) Gus is being fostered at Stephany's in Plymouth, Indiana.
