PUPDATE 22 August 2017: I won't lie - while Sam is a little odd, he is definitely one of my favourites here right now. While he can seem standoffish and aloof to some, he is loyal and devoted to me - his current person. Sam spent some time in foster and was found to be housebroken, good with the other house dogs, great with the (10 year old, dog savvy) child, great in the fenced yard, and enjoyable to take for long walks and hikes. Sam does have some mild separation anxiety when left alone, and does need other stable dogs in the home to feel comfortable. While he would enjoy training with his new person, he would also enjoy hiking, walking, or running, and anyone looking to adopt should be willing to take classes to help Sam become the best dog he can be! ********** Sam came to us from a rural shelter. He and a buddy (Dean) had been picked up by animal control, and they are in need of some special care. Both pups are underweight, and need groceries, and both are very under-socialisation and are in need of intensive social work and training. That said, both are lovely, and handled appropriately, they will make wonderful companions. Sam will be placed into a home with other outgoing dog(s). ************************ Please read our procedures prior to making inquiry regarding this dog. Please go to our main website at 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 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 DONATE ONLINE USING PAYPAL Thank you for your interest in Mid-Atlantic Border Collie Rescue.
