Jackie is also our amazing Picnic Organizer and devotes hours upon hours to help keep our rescue running smoothly.

Team Jilly and Gidget!
Meet Jilly and Gidget. Jilly is 14 years old and was adopted from MWBCR in 2005. Jilly was living on a farm in Southern IL and her owner didn’t think she had any herding instinct so he left her at a shelter to be re-homed. She was a VERY shy girl but with lots of TLC, by friends and family, she came out of her shell slowly over the years. Jilly loved her agility training (she’s now retired) and she loves to go swimming. Gidget is 11 years old and was adopted in 2007. Gidget came into rescue at 4 1/2 months old with a badly broken left rear leg. MWBCR paid for surgery and rehab. The leg was never going to heal properly so as much as Gidget would have loved to play agility that would have been too hard on her body. You’d never know it to watch her run but the jumps and turns and landing would have been a problem. So Gidget decided the next best thing for her was nose-work. She loves a good search! In the summer months Gidget can be found swimming in our back yard pool as often as her mom will open the gate for her. These long-time supporters, of all things Border Collie, are happy to participate in the 2017 MWBCR romp!
Meet Team Toby!
Team “Toby” is a newcomer to our Romp Teams! Toby was born to an unwanted litter on a farm in Iowa and was given to a rescue in WI to be responsibly re-homed. If he could talk, he’d tell you “He was lucky to find his forever home as a puppy.” However, his mom feels like the lucky one, he is her pride and joy all day, everyday! So joining Toby will be his sister Andie, his mom and another avid dog lover! They are newcomers to the MWBCR family and want to help raise funds to support the beloved Border Collie breed and help other dogs find their forever homes.
Team MooLily consists of 10 year old Red Border Collie/Aussie mix named Miley (aka Moo) and Lily who is an MWBCR Alumni! Lily was adopted just last year and was the mom to four little boy puppies that we also rescued with her. They, with their faithful humans, will be walking to raise money for MWBCR at our annual picnic!
Team Double Trouble!
ZuZu and Riley are walking with their humans for MWBCR! They are an amazing foster home for us that got roped in by being a temporary layover home. They are a great asset to us and are now helping raise pledges!
Team Reed is a new to the MWBCR family, having just adopted precious Riley this past Summer! Riley, and her family are going to be walking for MWBCR at the picnic! We appreciate all of their support for the breed and welcome you to sponsor them and help them reach their personal pledge goal!
Team Crazy Daisy
Meet Team Crazy Daisy! Her human is also one of our amazing volunteers! Cheer them on and support their cause!
Team Tillie is a newcomer to our picnic and this is their first year participating in our romp! Team Tillie is walking in memory of their beloved Border Collie, Murphy, who started their love of the breed by being their “first” BC. We appreciate all of their support for the breed and welcome you to sponsor them and help them reach their personal pledge goal!
