Macie is a lovely, sweet lady who is loyal and velcro with her person. She's a dog that could easily worm her way into my household - and that says a lot. She is smart, willing, and biddable, crate trained, housebroken (here), walks nicely on leash, and is simply a pleasure to spend time with. . Macie was relinquished to a shelter due to her discomfort with children. She has not been aggressive, but is clearly uncomfortable with children and boisterous dogs in her space (she moves away, and will airsnap if other dogs are overly pushy). . Macie will do best in a quiet, adult centric home with other laid back, calm dogs. We have seen signs of play interest with humans (she gets silly and bouncy when she sees me), but not with canines, and she does not enjoy other dogs getting in her face, so overly playful packmates may not be the best choice. . Macie is a known sheepdog - poodle cross and will need regular grooming in order to have a well maintained coat (she had to be shaved at the shelter due to matting). It is highly unlikely that she is an allergen free dog and will not be placed into a home as such. . PLEASE READ our procedures prior to making inquiry regarding this dog. . Please see 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 . Thank you for your interest in Mid-Atlantic Border Collie Rescue.
