Tip is a bit of a conundrum – his front end is all border collie, his back end is a mystery! Tip is an older fella, and came to us quite out of shape and overweight. Since arriving, he has lost weight, gained fitness and really enjoys running and playing. Tip gets along well with other dogs, and really loves good play sessions. Tip will do best in a home that enjoys walking, play sessions, and good love. Tip does ‘shiver’ when he is nervous or cold – his whole hind end shakes - but that dissipates once the nervousness fades. He does wear a coat in the cooler weather, and loves it! While he doesn’t appear to need another dog, he will feel more comfortable with another dog in the home. Tip appears to be housebroken and is crate trained, and rides well in a car. Tip’s intake expenses are approximately $200. If you would like to help with his expenses, please see http://www.mabcr.org/donations.html for ways to donate. If you are interested in applying to adopt Tip, please see http://www.mabcr.org/adoption_application.html for our procedures and an application. 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. DONATE ONLINE USING PAYPAL Thank you for your interest in Mid-Atlantic Border Collie Rescue.
