Come Bye Border Collie Rescue adult dogs offered for adoption have been heartworm tested and are on heartworm preventative, spayed/neutered, up to date on shots, microchipped and, in season, on flea/tick preventative.  

Come Bye Border Collie Rescue puppies are wormed for intestinal parasites, received their age appropriate vaccines and are microchipped. If too young to spay or neuter, the adopter will agree to spay or neuter the puppy as a part of the adoption, along with the payment of an additional $100 deposit. 

Please note this dog's foster home Location is included on this page, but you must go through the adoption process and be approved prior to doing a meet and greet with the foster dog.

Ever so handsome Bruce!

Bruce is a 3yr old Cattle Dog who is looking for a couple to spoil him.  He walks on a leash fine and knows some simple commands, like sit.  He is crate trained and actually will choose to sleep in there regardless if it’s open or closed.  However he does get kennel territorial with other dogs that invade his space, including his spot on the couch or on a blanket on the ground.  
Bruce is pretty talkative and he has a personality.   He loves to cuddle on the couch but will also play with toys.  
Bruce is a big boy and does not miss a meal and needs to lose some weight to keep him healthy. 
Bruce does excellent climbing stairs in your home. 
He will also jump into a car and sit politely.  
Bruce is well potty trained and scratches on the door or whines when he needs to go outside.  
Like most cattle dogs they are clung to their owners and bonding with him will happen quick.  
Bruce originally comes from Michigan City where his owner passed away.  He was given to someone whom had him for a year and then proceeded to dump him in a field. He was picked up and taken to the shelter.  He jumped right into the car and was very confused and looking for his people.   Bruce deserves stability and needs a cattle familiar owner. 
He is learning how to play in his foster home with other dogs politely but we’re hoping to place him in a home where he is the only dog and gets all the attention he has been denied of.
