Zip is a lovely little JRT - if you love JRTs :) Zip came into rescue when the family who acquired him found themselves in too deep. Zip is a classic terrier, and is happy to tell you so. He is smart, highly trainable (very food motivated), and is on the go-go-go! He is a lot of dog, and for a young family, simply proved to be too much dog. Zip will do best in an active, on the go home that has experience with JRTs and training. He will do best in a home with other dogs (preferably bigger dogs who won't put up with his Napoleon complex). Zip is crate trained, travels nicely crated in a vehicle, walks nicely on leash, and is responsive to training. In the right hands, Zip would excel at agility, or other motivational dog sports. Due to Zip's terrier 'tude, he will not be placed into a home with young children (he has lived well with children, but has also shown the 'tude and feel it may be best all around). 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.
