Dallas was found wandering house to house in a neighborhood on a busy street. He apparently had been a regular visitor as it turns out his family allowed him to wander. It's extraordinary that Dallas did as well as he did, and managed to survive because unbeknownst to the neighbors, Dallas is blind. You'll note that we did not state that Dallas is special needs -- that's because he really isn't. As long as he is fenced, Dallas figures out how to maneuver his space very quickly. We have a large somewhat complicated yard and it took him only a few days to completely figure it out. Dallas was heartworm positive on intake to the sending rescue, and is currently being treated with the slow method. He also arrived quite overweight, with a lack of fitness, and we are working on that as well. Dallas will thrive in a home looking for a companion who is a good buddy. He is always with me when I am outside, finding me quickly by the sound of my voice. He would do well with a laid back dog friend our two, and would enjoy taking leisurely walks, or hanging out in the garden with his people. Dallas is crate trained, and believed to be housebroken. . PLEASE READ our procedures prior to making inquiry regarding this dog. . Please see 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. . Thank you for your interest in Mid-Atlantic Border Collie Rescue.
