Intake date 28 December 2018 . Since there have been questions, a note about her name: We mark dogs with names, not numbers (most shelters use numbers), and we often rename dogs on intake (if the dog does not know its name). We chose Gillie for its Gaelic origins, and the meaning of the name - Servant of Jesus - as she was finally caught at Christmas time. We thought it appropriate. . Gillie is a feral dog who had been on the run for at least nine months before she was caught and taken to a shelter. She came to us directly from the shelter and on intake it was apparent that while she may have been someone's pet at some point, she had not been a pet long enough to have forgotten trust. Gillie has been spayed and is now available to an appropriate home. For Gillie this means a securely fenced yard, other balanced dogs, and humans with experience working with feral or extremely shy dogs. For the long term, Gillie would be very happy being someone's constant companion as she is not high drive and would truly enjoy a quiet life. Gillie is approximately 3 years old, and is in good health. . 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.
