You could say Buddy was the beginning of MIBCR/GLBCR. He was a stray from the Shiawassee County Humane Society and on his last day! A friend saw him on the noon news and called Patty, our GLBCR President. That was her "calling" to rescue Border Collies, since he was her first real rescue. He sure is a sweet dog, and she was so sad to see him go. 05/96

X Taz, aka tornado with teeth, was not a Border Collie at all. He is an unknown mix. Long story, but we ended up with him anyway. He now has a great home and a boy to play with. The boy and his dad adopted both Taz and his best friend Buddy, above.

Buddy 2 took a while to find the right home, but it finally came along. Now he'll get all the love and attention he deserves.

Jane was dumped off one fall as a 3 month old puppy and left to fend for herself. She was feral; even Animal Control tried to get her with a dart gun and couldn't. A GLBCR Angel started going to her hangout 2 - 3 X a day with food and to spend some time just talking to her. After about 10 days Jane came to her and the Angel grabbed her! Then she got lucky!
Jane now resides in N.E. Michigan and is just what her family was looking for :-)

Can you believe someone got these sweet darling pups, kept them a couple of months then sent them to the pound? These little girls came from the Gratiot County Animal Shelter.

Haley is a very sweet little 4 month old female Border Collie/Lab mix. She went to a terrific new home on a horse farm where she's getting full time attention and mom's grandkids to play with her. Suzy had been dumped off at a farm on a freezing cold windy winter night. She's one lucky little girl! Her picture does not do her justice at all. 0399

Ivy is a very lucky puppy that was picked up as a stray in Wooster OH. She wasn't given much time at the shelter, but an angel saved her. She's really happy now, because she has a great new family, and they were custom made for each other. 0599

Jake came from Home At Last Animal Sanctuary in Salvisa KY. Don't you love those ears? He's got a brand new dad complete with a nice fenced yard to play with now! 0699

Jazz is one of 2 sisters who were relinquished to the Livingston County Animal Control. Her sister got adopted from rescue quickly but poor Jazz didn't. She finally found a home of her own and now has a mom that loves her and a big brother border collie to play with. 0799

fly

Fly was a young girl with an outstanding herding pedigree that was sold to a family unprepared for the Border Collie lifestyle. She was then given to another family only to fall to the same fate. Fortunately, her 2nd family called rescue, and now little Fly has a wonderful home playing flyball and keeping those pesky geese away from golf courses. 0799

bracken
Bracken came into rescue from a "free to good home" ad in the newspaper. Bracken has been a constant joy since we first picked her up. As with all Border Collies, she is happiest chasing tennis balls and flying discs, preferably in the park...

We took her home for a family picnic this summer. There were about 30 people - over half being children. She loved the opportunity to play catch or be petted. When she wasn't the center of attention, she quietly laid in the grass intent on watching all the activity going on around her. Most of our family expressed amazement. Rhonda and I are immune since she has amazed us from day 1."  0799

trim

Trim had quite an adventure from being on death row at a northern Michigan County Animal Control to her new home. Although she's a sweet little girl, she really needed a job. She's now living and working with her new sister Fly (below) and is the happiest little dog in the world. Here she is, hard at work at her job as a goose control dog for Fly Away Home. 0899

toby

Hanna

8/25/2005 Hanna is always happy and is always at my side. She is my first border collie and because of her devotion and love I can't believe I didn't have a B.C. sooner. Hanna loves to run with the horses, on the other side of the fence of course. Hanna always comes when she is called, even if she knows she's done something wrong. She does agility, but lately has become a little bored with it I think, so she goes with us a lot of times now just to watch. She loves to cuddle and has become quite fond of squeeky toys. She always sleeps on the bed at my feet. There are many reasons why I love Hanna, and one of those reasons is she can be completely crazy and off the wall one minute and yet the next minute she is the most perfect, loving, calm, little lady. Hanna has made my life so much more complete and many thanks to GLBCR for letting me love and be loved by such a wonderful dog.
