Meet "Bobby"   Bobby is a one year old, full blooded Border Collie that came into rescue through no fault of his own after losing his owner to an automobile accident..  He came into WTBCR about a month ago.  Since that time, he has been fully vaccinated,  neutered and microchipped.  His is also heartworm negative and on heartworm preventative. 
In his foster home, it is very obvious that his previous owner spent a lot of time with him for training and sports.  Bobby is an amazing athletic boy.  He is 32 pounds of pure enthusiastic border collie.   He loves a ball, a frisbee and has now taken to the water like a duck. 
Bobby will need a home with someone willing to enhance his ability.  He is long legged and extremely fast. He is an excellent candidate for agility, fly ball, barn hunt and probably even dock diving.  He has a strong  toy and food drive for training.  

In his foster home, he has gets along with all the other pups, large and small.  He has not been exposed to cats but we do believe he would love to chase them.
  He is house broken and crate trained.  He is a glue dog and will definitely benefit from having a play mate and someone with him most of the time. 
Due to all the changes in his life he does have minor separation anxiety and will cry when left alone.  After plenty of exercise he does settle down in the house and plays well with house toys.  Bobby is a true cuddle bug and loves to be in a lap and snuggle.  The only negative that has been identified in his foster home is that he is a little reactive to new people.  It is very short lived and only takes a few seconds for him to come around with tail wagging and looking for a new friend to toss a ball.  His fosters have been working with him to help him overcome this reaction with short outings of people watching and positive reinforcement. 

Bobby is looking for an experienced Border Collie family that understands his true to the breed traits of high energy and need for activity.  He is being fostered in Northeast Georgia.  His adoption fee is $395 and we will require a physical fence.    For more information .contact Joyce at 706 202 0282 or complete an online application at
