Maddie's fosterer writes...

Maddie is a leaner, a licker and a lover. She is happiest lying at your feet, no matter what you’re doing. She enjoys riding in the car, with her head out the window. She chases balls, and brings them back… but doesn’t drop them. (We’re going to work on that!)

She wants very much to play, and can be rather insistent with dogs that aren’t up for a romp. That can lead to playground spats, so her new family will need to keep an eye on her introduction to and interactions with other dogs. She seems to be better with dogs her size or smaller.

Like many border collies, Maddie is very vocal, and has a bark much larger than her size. She uses it when she wants something, and when her people leave her alone. She loves meeting people, a little too enthusiastically at times, but is ready to chill with you once the greetings are over. Come chill with her!

If you are interested in Maddie, consider letting us know by filling out a (no obligation) adoption application (http://www.pgspca.org/adopt/online-adoption-application/).

Maddie is expecting to attend the next adoption show, December 17th at the Annapolis PetCo, although there's always a possibility that plans will need to change at the last minute.

We are an all-volunteer group and do not operate a shelter. All of our animals are in foster homes. We are unable to place our animals outside of the Baltimore/DC area.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Adopted! Maddie, a Bowie Border Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie for sale in Bowie, or seeking a Border Collie dog from a breeder in Bowie.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bowie already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Bowie breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Border Collie breeders who help with Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bowie paves the way for another one to be saved.
