Mid-Atlantic Border Collie Rescue - Welcome!

Welcome to Mid-Atlantic Border Collie Rescue (MABCR). We are a 501(c)3 organization run primarily by volunteers that currently serves the Mid-Atlantic region, including Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Virginia and West Virginia as well as the District of Columbia.


Mid-Atlantic Border Collie Rescue is a haven for Border Collies that have been discarded, neglected, abandoned or stray. Many of these dogs are turned over to animal shelters through no fault of their own - because their previous owners found themselves unable to handle the challenges border collies offer or because changes in their lives left them unable to properly care for their dogs.


Knowing and loving this breed allows Mid-Atlantic Border Collie Rescue to rescue these dogs from an uncertain future and place them into caring, responsible homes. MABCR knows each of their dogs intimately and what each requires to be properly placed into a new home. Dogs that arrive neglected or with 'issues' receive special care and training to allow them the chance to rehabilitate. Assessment of each dog can determine if they should be placed as a pet only or an actual working dog home, involved in herding, goose removal, agility or obedience.


We are always looking for great volunteers and foster homes for our pups. If you are interested, please send us an email at SLR@mabcr.org


We hope you love our website as much as we do.


Many thanks to Global Media Solutions for building this beautiful site for us! We hope you use this site to learn more about our mission, to find out how wonderful rescuing a dog can be, and to find out more about our cool Border Collies (and other critters) available for adoption..

Intake Date: 12 February 2019
DOB: November 2018

This little puddle of adorable is the SWEETEST puppy once he gets to know you! Wylie is suspected to be a rat terrier and he didn't have the best start in life. Due to this he is a bit shy when meeting new people and will need a home with someone willing to help him become the outgoing, confident dog I know he can be.
Wylie is great with all dogs, cats, and has even met our resident pony. He's quite playful and is working on his impulse control, so he will not be placed with young children.
He has fantastic leash manners for a puppy and has learned to sit and bow.

An ideal home for Wylie would be with an active couple with no or older kids, a confident/playful dog, and an experienced handler who can bring out the best in him! Could little Wylie be the pup for you?
