Intake date 27 October 2018 . January 2017 neutered male hard coated terrier mix . Nope. Not a border collie, but holy moly!! Our little Figgy is a gem! He's bigger than our normal Rayville Terrier, but only by a few pounds (well, more than a few but he needs to lose some weight). What is he? Your guess is as good as mine. If his head shape was different, I would guess PBGV, but his ears are most definitely not that! Figgy can pack with the big dogs, is nice with the little dogs (LOVES playing with puppies!), is a perfect gentleman in his crate, and while he does need some manners refinement, he is an all-around good guy. Figgy has been living in the house, and appears to be housebroken, walks reasonably on leash, and would make an excellent companion dog for a multi-dog household. Figgins can be mouthy, and has a lack of confidence in some situations, so small children would not be the best match. While he is sweet and affectionate with his people, he can be shy with new people (until they become his people, too!). Update to include the fact that Figgins is also good with cats. On initial meeting, he can be pushy, but a few days in he is good (with occasional reminders when the kitten races are happening). . 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.
