Maverick - Available to border collie owners with behavior modification experience only!

*Please contact Maverick’s foster parents by email before submitting an application

Maverick is a purebred border collie who has been under the care of CBCR for over 6 years now. Maverick is reactive towards “strangers”, that is, everyone who is not his immediate family. He reacts by barking, lunging, and growling, which can look pretty scary. By acting this way - most likely out of fear and insecurity - he only wishes to get away from something that scares him most (e.g, new people). When he first arrived to his foster home, he also exhibited serious reactivity towards cars, neighbor’s cows, birds in the sky………we were able to eliminate these reactive behaviors through several years of behavior modification training, but unfortunately, his reactivity towards people has improved only somewhat.
Being so reactive towards unfamiliar people, it is almost shocking how good and affectionate he is towards “his” people, that is, his foster parents. He loves to be petted, would nudge your hand to get your attention and would lick your face before falling asleep at night. Maverick is also very obedient and responds to basic commands like “sit”, “down”, “come”, “drop the ball”, “go to bed”, will maintain a nice “stay” and will release on command. To manage Maverick’s reactive behavior towards strangers, we follow a specific behavior modification program that needs to be continued for the rest of his life.


Maverick is quite athletic and is obsessed with his ball (he’d play 24/7 if you let him). Like many typical border collies, Maverick is sensitive to noise. He barks at and herds the lawn mower, vacuum cleaner and any kitchen appliance that makes noise. He will also run in circles around you if you sneeze. Surprisingly enough, Maverick is only mildly thunder-phobic and simply prefers to stay close to his person during thunderstorms.


Maverick lives with 9 other dogs, however, he does not need the company of other dogs to be happy. In fact, we prefer that he go to a home with no more than one other dog (no other dogs would be best). He requires a lot of work and attention, and it would be ideal if all of the attention would be spent on him. Maverick has not been exposed to cats, but we feel that he would do fine with them. He completely ignores the resident bunny rabbit at his foster home.


There will be several requirements to adopt Maverick. Commitment to his behavior modification training for the rest of his life is one of the requirements. Additionally, Maverick is on Prozac daily (the medication is very affordable), which needs to be continued as well. Maverick’s ideal home would be in a remote location with no immediate neighbors; Maverick cannot be adopted to someone living in an apartment. Maverick’s ideal owners would also not have visitors too frequently. In return, he’d be your most loyal companion, always ready to play or do whatever you are up to.  Maverick is completely trustworthy off leash, but should not be let off if there’s even a slightest chance that other people will be present. Maverick is house- and crate-trained and has impeccable house manners.


Maverick has been neutered and is up to date on vaccinations. He is being fostered in Cedar Grove, NC. Please contact his foster parents at iyevs13@yahoo.com with any questions.

Stu

Stu

Stu came to us from a shelter in western North Carolina and he's one happy dog now that he's a active member of the family.  He is a tricolor Border Collie perhaps with a bit of Aussie heritage.  As you can see, he has beautiful long hair, which I sheared off when he arrived because I couldn't get all the dirt out.  But he's a cutie sheared anyway.  Stu is an energetic, fun and happy dog; likely way younger than 2 years given his constant need to explore and MOVE.    The little guy is neutered, heartworm negative, does not exhibit thunder phobia nor separation anxiety.   He loves to play with other dogs, in fact it would be best for Stu to go to a home with another active dog to help dissipate some of his energy.  A lovable little guy, loves to snuggle...although is a bit squirmy.  He stays close to his owner, has never run off for us.  A crate does not work for Stu, as it doesn't for many dogs.  He has never shown any interest in toys but does love to play ball with all his heart.   He will quickly become bored in the house, and if that happens will likely find something to chew on. It is contingent upon us to keep him mentally and physically occupied.  He's smart, he ought to be the next president.   House trained.
Being a herder, he is not good with kids as he wants to nip their feet herding them.  Nor does he do well with cats.

Stu must not have had a pleasant life before he wound up in the shelter as he is seriously fearful of men.  My very patient husband has been working with Stu for 2 months and Stu has made great strides although there is still a way to go.  This earned trust likely won't spill over to other men and for that reason, must go  to a home without men.  

Putting the 'man thing' aside, Stu is an absolute joy, so full of life, returns love 10 times over.  He just wants to participate with us in the daily activities of life and to be his owners best friend.  And he will be given the chance.

Would you be that special person for Stu?

Stu is being fostered in Leicester, NC   For more information, please  contact Yvonn Horoshak at  yhoroshak@hotmail.com

Theo

Rosie

Miss Rosie would like to say hello to the world! This little cutie was found dumped on the side of the road near Fayetteville, NC. When she was found her little body was completely taken over with mange (specifically demodex), she was covered in fleas and ticks and was so skinny. Her eyes were badly infected and her face was so swollen it was hard for her to see. Since then she has been completely vetted and received top of the line mange treatment. Rosie’s battle to fight mange is still not over yet but she is certainly making progress. She is gaining weight by the day and loves to eat all food, seriously any sort of food (chips, carrots, sticks, chicken, and scrambled eggs are her favorite). Her foster mom obviously loves to spoil her with food because this little girl needs to gain some weight! Rosie is around 10 weeks old now and weighs 12 lbs. It is still really early to guess but Rosie’s foster mom thinks she might be a collie/Australian shepherd mix. She has long, fluffy reddish fur, a white tipped tail and white speckled sock feet. It is hard to tell from pictures but she also has one blue eye!

If there ever was a perfect puppy, it would be Rosie. She lives with two rambunctious older dogs and she is the best behaved pup in the house, no joke! She is crate trained, potty trained, and listens extremely well. She is used to being in the crate during work hours but is used to getting a potty break during lunch. She is still working on her leash manners, she can be a little timid on leash but does better when she can follow her foster sister. She loves her foster brother and sister very much, and she would love to have a forever brother/sister someday too. She is very respectful of older/bigger dogs but once she warms up she loves to play. She enjoys wrestling, playing fetch and running outside with the big dogs. She is also respectful of cats and would very much like to have a kitty best friend too. Rosie likes meeting new people because she gets to be the center of attention and get lots of love. She also likes to cuddle, with humans and dogs (if they let her). Rosie does have puppy energy but is not overly energetic. She gets to go out a few times a day in a fenced-in backyard and that is enough for her. She likes to chew (teething!) so it is always good to have a few bones around for her to gnaw on. Rosie can be very independent and therefore could be a major wanderer without a fence or a leash on.

Rosie also has a lot of say! She is a very talkative dog and will definitely let you know how she feels with a loud howl. It is very cute but her new home would have be wary that she is talkative. She also likes to look at herself in the mirror, she will sit in front of a large mirror for hours howling about how good-looking she thinks she is if you let her.

Rosie will require a unique home that has 1 or more doggie siblings for her to play with and a fenced-in backyard. Rosie still needs more time to heal from mange so she is not quite ready for adoption. She should be ready for her forever home around July. Rosie is being fostered in Raleigh, NC. For more information, please contact Tegan Smith at tegankae93@gmail.com.

Theo

Theo

Theo, who came from an animal shelter in Eastern NC, came to CBCR with very bad demodex (commonly known as mange) that covered the majority of his face and lower body. He has undergone treatment for demodex and as you can see is looking much better!

Theo loves attention, bath time, and lots of love from his foster mom. He enjoys wrestling and playing with his foster sisters and brothers and would do well in a home with other dogs. Cat compatibility is unknown. The hair on his body is now thick and straight with some wave on his tail! He currently weighs 40 lbs but is still growing and has long legs. Theo is very energetic, as any young border collie would be, and will need to be in a home that can provide adequate exercise. Theo is crate trained, working on leash manners and recall and loves to play outside. Overall, Theo has a playful and lovingly energetic personality. Theo is now healthy, UTD on all vaccines, and is neutered.

Think about adopting this happy go-lucky guy who has overcome many obstacles. Theo is located in Lincolnton, NC. For more information please contact Laura McSwain at mcswaila@gmail.com

Katy

Katy

Katy is a small border collie mix who was brought to Carolina Border Collie Rescue with her sister Foxy. (Read Foxy's bio for their history before becoming foster dogs). Katy is around 32 pounds with a short coat. She is believed to be around 2 years old. She has a compact, slim, athletic physique and is perky and energetic, but not the least bit hyper. She is mostly white with numerous border collie "ink spots". Her head is mostly black and is wide like a cattle dogs and she has a sweet face.

She is a very well-behaved dog and has had no accidents or mishaps in the house. She is a pretty happy and content dog with a sweet, easy-going disposition. In her previous life, it seems that she lived with a large number of dogs, and probably did not get a lot of individual attention from her owner. At the same time, it does not seem as though she was neglected or abused in any way.

She was already going into heat when she arrived, has been spayed and is recovering very well. She was heartworm free and is on heartworm prevention. She likes to cuddle, and enjoys walking on the leash two or three times each day. Her walks of 1 to 1.5 miles seem to tire her out and she does not seem to require more strenuous exercise. When she is in the house, she usually rests quietly. She gets along pretty well with our very laid-back older border collie Jasper. She seems curious about the neighborhood cat and the chickens in the coop and seems inclined to chase squirrels if given the opportunity. She might do best as an only dog, if her new owner wants to bond closely with her. I don't think that living with a large group of dogs is a good idea, but Katy might enjoy having one canine buddy.

Katy is being fostered in Statesville and will be ready to go to her new home very soon. Please contact Helen Rifas at hdrifas@gmail.com.

Ellis

Ellis

Ellis is feeling great now that all his medical problems have been treated. Ellis hasn't had a lot of joy in his life so it's nice to see that each new day gives him more happiness. He now has a smile on his face and his tail is always in motion.

Ellis is fearful of going new places and meeting new people. He has learned that he is safe at home and is finally starting to play with other dogs in the household and has allowed a couple of new people to come and hang out with him. He could live with or without other dogs but he might do best if he has a well socialized confident dog friend that will help him venture out more into the world. Ellis has shown strong interest in cats and is not yet trusted with free access to them. He loves to go on car rides and jumps right in the car. He loves to go walking and goes well in an Easy Walk harness.

Ellis enjoys chasing a tossed toy and will run wildly up and down with a ball or stuffed toy in his mouth. He does not constantly demand a game of fetch, but is always up for one.

It doesn't seem that Ellis had ever lived indoors before. When he arrived he did try to mark in some areas. Since that time he has been neutered and crated for some time while he was going through heartworm treatment. Now he enjoys complete freedom in the house and would be happy never to see the inside of a crate again (except for traveling -- he'll go right in a travel crate).

A home with fencing would be best for Ellis so that he may be able to experience the freedom of play with security.

Ellis loves attention and will sometimes push on you with his head to get attention. He has recently decided that he enjoys belly rubs and will allow those he trusts to scratch him. He needs someone who has the patience and understanding to deal with a dog that was likely abused in some way and takes time to trust. I think it really takes him a couple of weeks to decide if a person is "ok" or not. He could also benefit from basic training for confidence building. He seems to enjoy doing basic things like "sit" and "down" for treats and will readily learn new things for that person that he trusts. He does seem to bond with women more quickly than men but has adjusted to everyone here.

He doesn't fear things like thunder or sweepers. He has never shown any kind of aggression towards dogs or people. However, loud voices or swift movements may frighten him. Since he does enjoy getting attention and treats, I think he would progress even further out of his shell if his new parents will continue positive reinforcement basic training. Ellis has come a long way in his journey and you can see that he very much likes the life of a dog that is loved. He loves being close to people he knows and being indoors. Ellis will be a wonderful companion for someone who wants to help a dog blossom using patient caring and training.

If you would like to know more about Ellis please contact his foster mom by emailing Ellen at pearson9184@gmail.com. Ellis is currently being fostered in Pittsboro, NC.

Sweep

Sweep

Sweep is a sweetheart. We call him Sweep, Sweeper, Pinecone Boy, Weed Eater, or Handsome. He is great at entertaining himself and us in the process. His favorite thing to do is watch the other dogs while shaking whatever he has in his mouth, a toy, a ball, a pine cone, a leaf, or a blade of grass. Because of this habit, it is best not to leave the Sweeper unattended in your flower garden. He is never without something in his mouth.

Sweep gets along very well with his large foster dog family. He is not much for playing with the other dogs, but can be enticed occasionally. He prefers to focus on one dog and watch that dog's every move, from a distance. He definitely has a few of the obsessive/compulsive characteristic of the breed. He will need a home with other dogs or someone to be with him most of the time.

When Sweep attended NCSU Veterinary Hospital's open house, he attracted kids of all ages with his gentle manner. He lay down, closed his eyes and seemed to fall asleep as group after group came by and stroked his hair and talked to him. The only concern with children is food. He allows adult humans to remove his food but this may be an issue with young children and he is not too gentle when taking treats although he is much better than when he first arrived in rescue.

Sweep was rescued from a SC shelter. When he entered the shelter, he had a puncture wound in his lower right leg and was limping. Initially, it was felt that the limp was due to this wound but after the wound healed, the limp persisted. Radiographs were taken and a dislocated elbow was discovered. Several veterinarians were consulted. The wound is an old one and the chance that surgery would successfully correct the problem is very small, might make it worse. An option is to amputate, but, right now, Sweep uses this leg, doesn't seem to be in pain, and isn't hindered in the least so we will leave it alone. In the future, he may require an amputation although he has not experience any deterioration in movement or use since he first entered foster care in February of 2013. He is capable of short walks and hikes but he is unable to be a running partner.

Sweep's recall has improved since he first arrived at his foster home, although, he is often "very busy," he will come as soon as he can. (His leg really hurts when he doesn't want to come!)

Sweep initiates most of the howling episodes in his foster home. His motivation is not always clear although the clothes dryer is sure to get him going.

Sweep will not be adopted to a home with an invisible fencing system or any other shock type training system.

Sweep is being fostered in Durham, NC. For more information please contact Ann Miller: annMiller@nc.rr.com, 919.682.6125, (prior to 21:00 please).

Fae

Fae - Not Available

Life at the end of a chain, is an awful way to live. After Fae had puppies at a very young age at the end of a chain. She was dumped in a kill shelter by her former owners, with her breasts still swollen...to await her fate....She had developed a defense system to not let anyone touch her neck or head, she laid on the floor, not moving. Fae's foster mom took some peanut butter and put it on the end of a wooden spoon and slid it to her mouth on the floor. She studied it and after a short while she put her head forward and licked it.....we were headed home!

Fae already had the retina damage, which causes her to look like she is studying something, like a treat being offered or preparing to go out the door. She flourished in her foster home environment and her emotional wounds were healing. She was vetted, before this she never had any medical attention. And was also spayed.

Fae was adopted by a loving family, who didn't care that she wasn't a show dog. The children loved her and she them but it was not meant to be. After 3 years with her new loving family, the younger child developed serious problems with his immune system.

After taking shots, expensive medicines and still being ill the Dr. and Dad said Fae had to go. So they loaded up Fae with her favorite toy and teddy bear to go back to her CBCR foster mom. After a long tearful goodbye, I assured her that Fae would get the best care we could provide. Since then, Fae has remembered her foster mom, the house and most of the canine crew. She gets along with everyone, so there were no problems meeting new friends either.

Fae is very happy back at her CBCR foster home. She watches her canine siblings with lots of interest. But they are way too rowdy of a group for Fae. Fae is 7 yrs. old now and she is a laid back dog. She likes to nap on the bare floor and does trot in a broad circle when she is outside. But waiting to come inside with the group, she lays her head across her buddy's back. She really wags that bushy tail, she is a very happy girl.

Fae really would like some patient love that lets her study things and will let her play softly with her blanket and teddy. She has been to the eye specialist, she has pre-cataracts in her right eye along with retina damage. Her vision is severely compromised. Estimated cost to remove cataract and restore 80% of Fae's vision is around $3500.  CBCR is presently exploring ways to fund this necessary procedure.  Fae will be a happier girl when she can see and better navigate the world around her.

If you can provide Fae with a loving home environment, she will return your love ten-fold!

Fae is being fostered in Lincolnton, NC. If you have any questions or want further information, please contact Laura Mcswain at mcswaila@gmail.com.

Chaco

Chaco - Adoption Pending

Chaco is believed to be a Border Collie/Australian Shepard mix. He is two years old neutered and up to date with current shots. He is a higher energy dog who is good with people, older children due to nipping tendencies and most other dogs. He struggles with small puppies and small dogs due to his energy level and he has never learned to be gentle. Chaco is also starting to enjoy playing fetch. Being a Border Collie, he also shows the herding/nipping at heels tendencies and occasionally will find it more fun to herd other dogs while they play fetch. Recently he is herding other dogs less and playing fetch more as he becomes more comfortable. He loves to be outside during the day but prefers to be wherever his people are. He also is very friendly with people and runs up to everyone. He also will jump if you let him but he has made fantastic progress with that since being fostered. He has met a few children during our trips to Lowes, Home Depot or PetCo and been just as friendly with children as well. Chaco likes to swim and has been kayaking with us and did really well. He fell off the kayak a few times but he was able to climb right back in and is working on his balancing skills. He is slightly more leery of fetching in the water but is building confidence the more he is exposed to new situations.

Chaco basically is learning to become a house dog. His back story is that his previous owner found him as a stray at one year old. They decided to keep him but he was only an outside dog that was kenneled or ran the neighborhood freely. He was turned into the shelter due to the neighbors having issues with Chaco running freely. With that being said Chaco has done exceptionally well with house training. Since being in his foster home he has only has three accidents total. He is free to roam the house during the day and is not destructive at all. He actually has not torn anything up but occasionally he will pull a can out of the recycling bin to lick it. He is working on ringing the bells to tell us when he needs to potty but he just chooses to hold it. Chaco is kenneled at night due to the fact he can't be around cats. He has higher prey drive and he is ok if they are not moving but once they run he chases. Occasionally he will ignore them but he shows far too much interest to be trusted with them yet. Chaco's typical day mainly involves following me around where ever I go and chewing on nylon bones. He plays great with my Border collie and Aussie and is very submissive. He often rolls on his back while my dog jumps all over him. He plays very well with all dogs he has met and been allowed to play with. With the exception of small dogs and puppies. Since he is rougher when they are so small he has not been allowed to play yet.

Chaco also uses a gentle leader to help with pulling. This has also helped tremendously. When I don't use the gentle leader I can still tell an improvement in his pulling. He also enjoys hiking and has done very well on hikes. He also trail runs with me or we run 3 to 4 miles on a Greenway several times a week. He has no issues keep up when we run four miles. Overall he is an incredible dog. Very cuddly and a huge lover. His favorite thing to do is hug you. Yes, its bad behavior but quite possible the most adorable thing you have ever seen. When I come home from work he loves jumps up and wraps his paws around you and squeezes. He will even let out an little moan/ whine. It has never been a dominant/humping behavior. When people meet him this is their favorite thing but we are working on only hugging when asked for a hug since this is bad manners.

Really the only issue Chaco is working to overcome is his fear of a kennel. Chaco has nipped hard twice when being forced into the kennel. He walked in but tried to escape and was blocked with hands and nipped twice. This was in the beginning of his fostering. Since then Chaco has also showed incredible improvement. I do kennel training with him multiple times a day and now he will walk right in his kennel if you have treats or his food bowl since he is always fed in his kennel. Chaco still doesn't like to stay in his kennel and will bark. In the beginning, he would bark for close to an hour straight after we would put him in it but now he barks for maybe 10 minutes then goes to sleep in it overnight. He really has come a long way in a short time frame of a couple weeks. With more training and not a lot of kennel time he will overcome his fear of being locked in kennels. He is currently enrolled in an adult level dog training class to help with basic manners as well as kenneling issues. He is very smart and learns quickly. So far he knows sit, shake, down, come and we are working on stay. With a patience and continued training he will be an amazing addition to your family.

Shep

Shep - Adoption Pending

Shep's previous owner was a kind man. He was approached by a breeder who convinced him to take his "one last puppy." The owner tried his best to provide a good home but eventually realized that his environment was not a good fit for this boy. When the owner was home and outdoors, Shep stayed close by his side, otherwise, he tended to roam. Shep had to be penned most of the time to protect him from the busy road and to keep him from getting into trouble.

Shep is a big boned, big hearted, gentle fellow. His breeding was probably not too precise. His head and size make him a little atypical of most working lines. The way he moves however is 100% Border Collie.

Since coming into foster care, Shep has been exposed to many new things. First was a ride in a car in a crate. He was a perfect gentleman, never made a sound, didn't scratch or try to claw his way out. He has since been crated many times and is just fine, he will sleep in one voluntarily.

Coming inside was a little traumatic for the Shepherd. The first few times, he had to be carried into the house. He had never been a house before. Once inside, it was difficult for him to settle down. He spent a lot of time pacing and panting, he was obviously uncomfortable. In less than a week, he was totally transformed! He loves being inside with his people and he is able to relax. The house is still one big toy box to him so he needs some supervision. His favorite toys are newspapers and magazines. He has never chewed furniture, shoes, or, the usual inappropriate items, but, he may devour your shopping list or carefully written thank-you note. His counter surfing has greatly diminished.

Shep is very good with other dogs. His loves his two hoodlum sisters who introduced him to the delicacy of paper products. They have taken him under their wing for better or worse!

Shep does not get on the furniture, does not jump up on people and takes treats ever so gently. He knows a few commands, sit before eating, "in the box," and come but is capable of a lot more. He is starting to show an interest in toys. He is still a work in progress. He is unsure of strangers and will bark a little but then approach for a sniff and allow petting. He will then follow the stranger around. He needs more exposure to new people. preferably, those bearing treats. Shep's ideal home would be as a constant companion. He is on the calmer side of the Border Collie Spectrum. He needs exercise but not an excessive amount. He would make the perfect hiking companion as he wants nothing more than to be by the side of his person.

Sweep

Sadie - Adoption Pending

Miss Sadie has a unique and long story. Sadie came from a very bad hoarding situation. She spent her entire life chained in a 5x5 pen outside until she was rescued. She ended up at NC State Vet School where she was having a disc herniation repair which caused by nothing but bad luck. After her surgery, she came into CBCR and her new foster home barely able to walk, with a 12 inch long incision with many staples. Sadie has made SO much progress since that time. She now walks normally and even has her pretty border collie prance back! Her long term prognosis for her back surgery is great and the expert neurologists at NC State think she will make a complete recovery with no long term negative side effects! She will continue to gain strength in her back legs and should be able to run and play like a normal dog in no time. Sadie will not be a good fit for any high impact sports or agility. Sadie is also heartworm positive, she will start treatment on April 11th and will need rest/calm environment while she goes through treatment.

Despite having an extremely tough life so far, she is the happiest little dog, she smiles when you come in the door and is just completely content to be around her people. Sadie is more of a laid back, lounge around dog but does need a little bit of exercise every day. She likes to go outside to smell around and look at the birds. Her foster mom thinks she would do great off lease as well because she is definitely a Velcro dog, doesn't want to be far from her person. She is also great around young children! Very gentle, patient, and well behaved. Despite living outside her entire life, she has never had an accident in the house and has never chewed, destroyed, or done anything bad while in the house. Her foster mom is always so surprised how great her manners are! Sadie does not prefer to spend time in the crate, she likes to be out during the day hanging with her foster sister or sleeping at her foster mom's feet. Sadie is used to sleeping in the crate at night, she will go the entire night without a peep. Though Sadie loves people of all sizes, she can be very wary around new dogs. Sadie loves her foster sister but can be aggressive towards new dogs until she has identified them as "safe".

Sadie's road to recovery is not quite over but she is such a sweet and lovable dog. She LOVES to have her neck scratched and anyone who gives her scratch will be her new favorite person. She has also learned to lay down, sit, and give paw. She loves to show off her "paw" trick (see picture below), she is very proud of it.

Sadie is a wonderful dog who REALLY deserves a chance at life with a great family. Sadie's foster mom will provide more updates as she goes through heartworm treatment this month.
