Mickey - A Border Collie Mix That Will Steal Your Heart.........
Susan Daffron talks to Vicky Caponiti from the Partnership for Animal Welfare (PAW) about a tri-colored border collie mix named Mickey who is available for adoption. Based in the Washington, D.C. area, PAW is a non-profit group of volunteers who take homeless pets out of animal shelters and find them new homes. Most of the dogs are in foster care and attend adoption shows in the suburban Maryland area. Although his prior owner neglected him, after some medical help from the folks at PAW, Mickey is now a healthy, happy dog who is always a big "hit" at the adoption shows because he just loves everybody.
Mickey is an active young dog (about 1.5 years old) so he will need a fenced yard to play in. Because he's a border collie mix, he is also extremely bright, so he would enjoy doing something that exercises both his mind and his body. Mickey would love to participate in obedience training classes, but he also would be great at sports like flyball, Frisbee, or agility. If you are an athletic type who wants a new canine buddy to go running with, you won't find a more enthusiastic companion than Mickey! This dog had a really rough start and deserves a second chance from someone who will appreciate what a wonderful dog he really is.
