Intake date 16 January 2019 . Intake date 28 August 2018 Rehome date 9 September 2018 Colt was returned to MABCR in January, when his adopter was admitted to hospice after a catastrophic health event. . 2 year old neutered male Border Collie pulled from one of our southern shelter partners. Colt is quiet, kind, open to learning, and truly is looking for a best friend to call his own. Colt has shown himself to be great with other dogs (including puppies), has been introduced to children (on leash, children were quiet and still) and strangers and has enjoyed both. Colt is crate trained, walks nicely on leash, rides well in a vehicle (in a crate), and sticks close to his person (he apparently howled when I left for the day). Are you Colt's person? Colt will do best in a home with humans who understand that exercise and training are the rule of the day. Colt needs structure in order to be happy, and will not do well without regular exercise and brain training. Colt would happily succumb to chasing cars if allowed, so applicants should be prepared to keep Colt off the streets and out of trouble ;-) For information on adopting Colt, please see our website at . 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.
