If you see a potential new best friend, please go to our website: LookBackRescue.org and click on Application Application to complete our on-line form. We will follow up by either phone or email (your choice). We will send more photos and share more information about the dogs that seem like a good fit for you.
If there seems to be a good match for you, we will meet with all family members (especially children and current pets) so that everyone has time to get acquainted, because everyone gets a vote.
All of our dogs are up to date on all vaccinations, have been spayed or neutered, and have micro chips. Also, our blank adoption contract is available on our website for review prior to meeting.
We are a not-for-profit organization run by volunteers. We specialize in placing orphaned Border Collies matching the right dog to the right home. Our dogs come from shelters or owner turn-in situations and stay in foster homes. We are their way-station to finding their very special human.
Our President has spent a lifetime with ranch animals and has successfully placed over 300 dogs during her tenure with various rescues. This experience is the basis for accurate temperament testing and successful placement, because if you meet 20 Border Collies, you meet 20 personalities. They are each unique. We try our best to understand each Border Collie’s needs and possible issues so that we can honestly share as much as possible with potential adopters.
What does Look Back mean? Look Back is the command given to the Border Collie by the handler after already gathering sheep, to leave the hard earned flock and go look for more lost sheep. To be willing to leave the flock for more sheep requires deep trust in the handler. Together, the teamwork completes the task of bringing all of the sheep to safety.
If you adopt from a rescue, you are rescuing the next orphan and you become part of the team. We appreciate you considering Look Back Border Collie Rescue.
