2 Years Old
Brown, Tan & White
Hi everyone I’m Max. I’m almost 2 years old. I’m an energetic collie and I need a super special home with understanding owners to call my own.
I was very scared coming into kennels and was unhappy for quite some time. But the staff here have worked magic with me and have really helped me to feel safe and have brought me out of my shell.
I am nervous of strangers, but my training sessions are the best. I really enjoy meeting new people now, in a safe and controlled way. I get loads of sweeties and fun toys to play with and strangers are now not as scary as they once were.
I can be quite nervous out and about especially if any big trucks or buses go past. Sometimes, I get so frightened that I forget to go to the toilet so my new home would need a garden that I feel safe in to do my business. In an ideal world, I’d like to live away from a busy area please, or at least be driven to quieter areas for my walks, I really don’t like walking on busy pavements, sorry. Hopefully soon I will be happier to explore out and about. I’ve had great fun on my trips to the beach lately!!
I’m not suited to live with children younger than 15 or any other pets as I am quite nervous.
As it does take me a little while to settle into new environments, I would need slow introductions to my new home. This means that my new family will come to the shelter and get to know me for a while and the shelter staff will start bringing me round to their house for visits so that I learn what an awesome place my new home will be and that I don’t need to feel worried!!
I am a bundle of fun once I know you and love cuddles and licking faces. I really love playtime and have come on in leaps and bounds with my training. I enjoy agility which I have been learning here and I love learning new tricks. (Training time is my favourite time) so many yummy treats involved!
I am fully muzzle trained and am happy wearing my comfy harness. I get super excited at walkies times as I’ve got loads of energy and love my exercise ……. I’m a little bouncy bundle of fluff.
I need regular grooming and am happy with that as long as there’s treats involved to keep me from running off as my attention span can be very short especially when we are doing boring stuff!
I need some new human friends to adopt me and take care of me, are you looking for a doggy friend? Then come in and meet me.
