PUPDATE 20 February 2016: Jack continues to do well. He can get somewhat overwhelmed when there is a lot of activity in the house, but for the most part, takes things in stride with good leadership and a confident human to help him.
Jack is well crate trained, walks reasonably on leash, and loves to play with other dogs. Jack will be a true gem in the right home.
PUPDATE 5 December 2015: Jack is in foster for a week for assessment. He is doing really, really well!! A home willing and able to build confidence will be perfect for him!
Jack is a late March 2015 puppy who got loose from his home and was running 'free' for three months. Lured into someone's home, he quickly settled in, and would have stayed if the family who found him felt it was in his best interest. Unfortunately, his former owners no longer wanted him, so to rescue he came.
Jack is very gentle and sweet, yet has not had the opportunity to bond with people he can trust. He will do best in a home with other self confident, outwardly friendly dogs, and people who understand the needs of a dog who may be a flight risk.
For the immediate future, Jack must be on leash, and for the long term, should have a securely fenced yard for play.
Jack will be made available to a home who is able to provide him with long-term training, and positive reinforcement to help him become the best dog he is able to be (and he has a LOT of potential!!).

Please read our procedures prior to making inquiry regarding this dog.
Please go to our main website at www.mabcr.org for more information regarding the adoption of this or any dog from our rescue.
Please note that while this dog is currently available, any dog on our site may have an adoption pending and may not be available to you at this time. The same dog may later become available if the adoption falls through.
Our website www.mabcr.org will give you details on our adoption procedures as well as an application for adoption. An application must be submitted prior to 'matching' an adopter with a dog as all dogs do not fit into all homes. We pride ourselves in our adoption process, we take the time to get to know our adopters so that we can place a dog with them that they can enjoy for years to come.
Please understand that we will not discuss dogs with individual adopters until after the application process is completed.
Our rescue does not have a public facility, therefore there are no visiting hours. Appointments to visit with the available dogs are made after the application process has been completed by our staff.
To assist any dog within the MABCR organization, please consider making a donation to the general fund or to the medical fund. All dogs coming into our rescue are fully vetted (s/n and innoculations) prior to adoption.
Rescuing animals is quite expensive. If you are unable to adopt, but would like to help this, or any other animal in our system, please consider a sponsorship donation.
For information on our sponsorship program, please contact Sarah at SLR@mabcr.org.
