Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We’d like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Reggie, a puppy currently being fostered through Pet Connect Rescue of Potomac, Maryland.

This 10-week-old lab/border collie mix is safe now, but just a few weeks ago he was trying to survive on his own. This adorable boy was found by the Pickens County Animal Control on the streets of South Carolina and was plucked from a local shelter by two rescuers. When he was old enough, he was transferred to Pet Connect Rescue, where foster mom Catherine Edwards kept up with his round-the-clock feedings.

Weighing about 12 pounds now, Reggie is a super-friendly boy who is great with all people, loves other dogs and is still young enough to learn about cats. He greets everyone with a wagging tail and puppy kisses. Like most pups his age, he loves to explore his surroundings and is active, therefore he needs an owner who can help him with basic training and to burn off his puppy energy with activities. Reggie is currently learning crate training, house training and good social skills.

“When Reggie arrived to our home, he was instantly the life of the party,” says Edwards. “He loves to be with people and became fast friends with the resident dogs.”

If you think Reggie is the buddy you’ve been looking for, contact Pet Connect Rescue at 1-877-838-9171.
