About Us

Benedikte Whitman, an individual rescuer of Border Collies (4-Corners Independent Border Collie Rescue), started the first New Mexico Independent Border Collie Rescue website in 1998. She wanted to list dogs for other rescuers as well as try and help people place dogs while they keep them themselves.



4-Corners Independent Border Collie Rescue

Located in Farmington in the North West part of the state, 4-CIBCR takes in Border Collies from local shelters as well as other parts of the state. Dogs are reviewed for temperament and other factors to aid in successful placement. If possible, dogs are tested on sheep to determine if they have herding instinct, desire, and any ability. Some training is done depending on the length of stay.
