Meet Mr. Handsome!!!
Max is very sweet, friendly with everybody, and handsome!! Look at those spots!!
Max really likes people, including children. Max also likes to go for walks, he needs some additional leash training. And he loves a Kong toy stuffed with his food mixed with peanut butter. He's food motivated and very smart, he will be easy to train.
Max has been good with all the dogs at his foster mom's farm. He acts like he wants to play with them, but once he's with them, he's not sure what to do, so he just walks around. If he's on the other side of the fence, he will fence race with the other dogs. He's a little too interested in cats, but is learning that cats are Off Limits!
Max was raised outside on a farm. He is now crated trained and should be easy to housebreak. He gets very interested in motors such as lawn mowers and cars coming up the driveway. Lots of barking and nipping at tires. He will definitely bark and nip at tricycles and bicycles if given the chance. If young kids are "running" around, that will excite Max as well. Remember, Max is a pure border collie and border collies like to herd things that move.
Max would like to have a home where he gets more human attention. (He was kept in a pen most of the time on the farm. He was a little too interested in the chickens.) He needs a fenced yard so he has a place to exercise and explore. (Even at 8, Max is still an active boy.) He is learning to come when called, but needs additional training.
If you are interested in Max, please fill out an online application and contact Kay Sander at FaithandQuest@earthlink.net. All potential adopters are required to have a home visit prior to placement of one of our rescues. Max's adoption fee is $300, and we offer a two-week trial period when you adopt one of our dogs.
