Callie {Adoption Pending 01/2018} 

Congratulations to Callie and her Adoptive Family. She was adopted yesterday to a wonderful home where she will have room to roam, little ones to love and protect and be part of a great family. We wish Callie and her new family all the best in the future.



Lilly’s foster family reports that she is a very good watchdog. She will bark when someone comes to the door but nothing too much. Absolutely just enough to deter someone. She has been fantastic!  She LOVES to be outside and roll around in the leaves and playing in the water, so she has gotten multiple baths. Also you could tell after less than a week of the new food her fur started to soften up and look better.  Lilly is in a wonderful foster family that includes two young kids. She would do wonderful in almost any environment. Do you have a place in your heart for Lilly? She would love a new home to start out 2018 with.

Cody {Adoption Pending 01/2018} 

Welcome Cody to The Nebraska Border Collie Rescue. Cody is a 2 year old Border Collie mix that loves everyone. Cody is one lucky boy, he is already in his foster to adopt home. His new family will foster him for a short period of time before officially adopting him. This way he can get any vet work done, but still get acclimated to his new family. Good luck Cody with your new family!

Hank {Adoption Pending 01/2018} 

Welcome Hank to NBCR. Hank is a 1-2 year old male Border Collie Mix.Hank arrived from an overcrowded shelter where he was found as a stray. When he first arrived he did show some reactivity with other dogs. Now that he is comfortable at his foster home he is coming out of his shell and seems to be doing well getting along with other dogs. We believe with a slow introduction, Hank would do fine in a house that already has a dog. He has not been tested with cats. Hank loves kids and loves to have his belly rubbed. We will add more once we get to know Hank better.

Simon {Adoption Pending 01/2018} 

Please welcome Simon to NBCR. Simon is a 12 year old Border Collie, Possibly a mix. Simon is part of our Seniors for Seniors program. If you are a senior citizen and want to adopt one of our dogs over the age of 7, the adoption cost is a free will donation. Simon came to us from a small town in Iowa. His owner needed to go into a nursing home and could not take Simonwith her. Simon is an awesome, already made perfect pup. He can have free roam of the house without tearing up anything. He gets along well with other dogs, and cats. He is currently living with both. Can you take Simon into your home, and make his last years the best years of all? Simon is ready for adoption today.

Annie {Adoption Pending 01/2018} 

Annie has found her forever home!  Annie had a bath and is now enjoying a DogGurt frozen treat. She’s such a sweet girl and is quickly coming out of her shell.  Annie very much loves her new humans.

We are so excited to announce, that after being with us for over a year, Dash has finally been adopted. Dash is going to have a great home with his new human brother and sister! Congratulations, Dash and Family!!


Boulder {Adoption Pending 01/2018} 

Welcome Boulder to the Nebraska Border Collie Rescue. Boulder is a 5 year old neutered male, who is very loving. Boulder’s foster family have already talked about being foster failures, so Boulder may already be in his forever home!


Buddy {Adoption Pending 01/2018} 

Buddy is an 8 year old neutered male that was an owner relinquish back in March. He was adopted right away, and was loving life. In late October his adoptive Mom passed away, and Buddy found himself in Rescue once again. Buddy is an excellent watchdog, he loves his yellow Kong squeaky balls, and taking walks. Buddy is still active, he loves playing fetch. Buddy gets along great with cats, dogs and kids. We do recommend that Buddy be placed in a home with kids over 10. If you have very dog savvy kids who have been raised around dogs, we may make an exception. This will need to be decided by our Board of Directors. Can you be Buddy’s forever family? Please make 2018 a great year for this wonderful boy!


Please welcome Hero to The NBCR. Hero is a 4 year old Border Collie/Australian Shepherd mix. He was a stray that was brought to a local shelter. Hero has a high energy level and loves to play. At this time he does not walk very well in a leash. With consistent practice he can learn to walk nice. With a proper introduction, he gets along well with other dogs. He made a new friend this evening with the resident dog at his new foster home.


Please welcome Owen to the Nebraska Border Collie Rescue. Owen is a 3 year old neutered male, purebred Blue Merle Border Collie. Owen is a special needs guy. He suffers from some anxiety with loud and strange noises. His anxiety increases ten fold around small children, he just cannot handle the noise. His OCD behaviors kick into overdrive. When overstimulated Owen spins in a circle on the couch. He will do this when the ceiling fan is on too. Owen is going to need a quieter home than what he had. Owen does show signs of making a great Herding dog or agility partner. So here is Owens adoption criteria. He needs a large yard with a 6 foot fence, unless Owen is going to be trained for Herding right away. No kids under the age of 14. Surprisingly Owen is ok with cats, at least the ones at the vet office. Owen is going to need someone who can work his mind as well as his body. He needs someone to be able to help him get over his OCD challenges.
















Nebraska Border Collie Rescue wants to welcome our newest additions.
Chevy, Aston, Lincoln and Maverick.

These four brothers were rescued from a shelter in Kansas. They all joined their foster families last night and so far it looks like Lincoln is staying with his family FOREVER!! What a lucky little pup. These guys are all AKC papered and are going to be big and energetic. We will post more on these boys once they settle in with their families.
