Adopted January 2013
"We adopted Cheyenne, a 5 year old border collie from BRBCR, back in 2013. She is now 8 years old and is such an amazingly smart, beautiful, eager-to-please girl with lots of love and energy to share. She was a bit shy when we adopted her, didn't know how to play with toys, and was afraid of items in the house (such as the broom, vacuum, etc.), and she has come out of her shell so much! We've made it a point to expose her to all sorts of household objects, toys, and teach her lots of tricks to build her confidence, and you would never imagine that she didn't know how to play or was fearful before! She was our first dog and is just the best companion we could ask for. She's so confident now, that we were able to adopt another BC that had anxiety/fear issues, and she's helped his confidence a ton too (plus weekly training, and walking to busy areas with lots of noises, excitement). We love our rescues and have found that TLC, lots of training through play, and teaching them new tricks (mental exercise) has really transformed these pups into the most wonderful family members. So grateful for BRBCR, and the wonderful foster care that was provided to Cheyenne before she came to us!"
