This is Trina, a 4 yr. old female BC that we pulled from the Tooele County Shelter (she looks a lot like Rusty!). She stayed with us for about 4 days until we could ship her to her regular foster home in Colorado. Poor girl had recently had puppies (but there was no sign of them when she was picked up as a stray). She is a great dog and now has a wonderful forever home.
Soldier Hollow Sheepdog Trial
This year, WBCR was invited to have a booth at the Soldier Hollow Sheepdog Trials in Heber City, Utah. What an experience! I go to the trials every year for at least a day or two, but this year was incredible as the dogs and I camped at the venue with the WBCR volunteers and manned a booth. Attendance was a record breaking 25,000+ spectators over the course of the four days. WBCR gained some much needed exposure, lots of applications on our dogs, some new volunteers and foster homes and got to instinct test some of our dogs on sheep. We even did 2 or 3 home visits and a shelter pull of four dogs from the Spanish Fork shelter during that four days :D
Our booth was located in the IFA Tent Pavillion (so we got some protection from the crazy Labor Day weather - cold, wind, rain and intense sun and heat - all in just four days).

This is the WBCR Adoption Board - now that they're up to well over 500 successful adoptions, they might need a second board.

And here's Allie -- who really, really just wanted to eat those sheepies.
