This 16-week-old puppy is friendly, happy, active, and very smart. We are looking for a home with herding dog experience, and the time and energy, to train this pup to be the awesome dog he can be. He is also going to need a large safe area to run.
Max was surrendered to us because his owner bought him without any experience with border collies. His energy, mouthiness and herding instincts came as a complete shock. They decided when he started nipping the children with sharp puppy teeth that he needed a new home.
Max is coming along very well in his foster home. He is well on his way to being house-trained, but at this age still needs to go out at least every four hours. He is getting much better about his crate, but will need more work. He sleeps all night by himself quietly, but tries to "talk" his way out with his sharp puppy voice before settling down during the day.
Max is up to date on basic vaccines and is on heartworm and flea/tick preventatives. We offer a two-week trial period when you adopt one of our dogs.
Thank you for considering a rescue!
